#Archive 1
If a new article is filled with nonsense, SPAM, or offensive material, nominate it for speedy deletion. {{d|Explanation}}

As a wiki there will be some pages that are not up to standard. On this page, listed are all the current articles whose value has been questioned. We invite all users to participate in the discussion as to whether these articles are acceptable or not. The pages listed will be voted on to reach a consensus. Once a consensus has been reached or a length of time has passed, usually two weeks, an administrator will review the discussion and decide what action should be taken.

Note: As a rule of thumb, a new archive is to be created after the current archive has 30 sections.

How to list an article Edit

  1. Put {{vfd}} on the page to be deleted and save.
  2. Click this article's entry.
  3. On the page, place ===[[Page name]]===, then your reason. Save.
  4. Come to Stellar Dawn Wiki:Votes for deletion and add {{Subst:Stellar Dawn Wiki:Votes for Deletion/Page name}} to the bottom of the page.
  5. When the community has reached a consensus, an administrator will close the VfD, and either delete the article or (if the consensus is to keep) add the Previous vfd template to the article's talk page.

Positions Edit

There are multiple positions that can be taken in a VfD.

  • Delete Supporting the nomination to delete the page in question
  • Keep Opposing the nomination to delete the page in question
  • Neutral No support or oppose to the nomination
  • Comment Comment given analysis of the VfD or nominated page itself. If the commenter has not already taken a position, this is usually considered to be Neutral, though the text may lean in favour of deleting or keeping.
  • Merge A compromise between deleting and keeping the page in question. Usually the merge will be done with a larger but related page.

Speedy deletion Edit

Found a blank page? A duplicate? A misspelling? A page filled with nonsense? Try using a speedy deletion instead. Simply type '''{{d|reason for speedy deletion}}''' on the page and the page will appear in Category:Candidates for speedy deletion. An administrator will check the page and make a decision without the voting process.

Pages listed for deletion Edit


Stellar Dawn Q&AEdit

Personally I think this isnt anything worth having in mainspace, let alone anywhere else. If anything, we can just make an external link on Stellar Dawn that links to the actual source

However, instead of just taking action I'd like you all to give your opinions and vote ye, ne, or comment. Hess Talk 17:50, August 7, 2010 (UTC)

Comment-Maybe have it as a news piece with the external link there? TSXtalk 19:51, August 7, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - While I do support this deletion, I would rather not use another fansite for citation. While it is necessary for some functions (such as Jagex staff comments relevant for discussion elsewhere), I feel it more appropriate to have the frequently asked questions link to the official site version.

Comment- I agree Blue, the official site version is a bit more condensed as well.Hess Talk 19:46, August 8, 2010 (UTC)

Comment to Hess - We do not function under "votes" as we are not a democracy. This is a huge policy many wiki's believe. I've taken the liberty of changing your request to ask for a consensus. =) 00:56, August 9, 2010 (UTC)

Forum ModeratorEdit

The article "Forums" was voted for deletion, I thought it only right to delete Forum Moderator. The consensus for deleting "forums" was yes due to people wanting to wait for Stellar Dawn to come out. It would only make sense to remove Forum Moderator as well.
Hess36 (TCE) forgot to sign this comment.

Comment - I'm not too sure. At this point I don't see how it really matters at the moment, and if viewing the recent release of War of Legends, another Jagex game with forums and forum moderators, I think it's safe to assume Stellar Dawn will also have them. 00:32, April 15, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - Seeing as the site is out (and forums), this can be closed as Keep. Ryan PM 03:38, July 16, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - The Forums are out. Jeffwang16 20:30, July 16, 2010 (UTC)


Keep: As nominator I withdraw this nomination (I made it in March, many many months before forums were released) and it is obvious there will be forum moderators.
