Hi all. Well i saw how the runescape wiki had a news paper and i was thinking would it not be cool to have our own when mechscape comes out!--godpower49 19:36, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

would be cool--godpower49 19:36, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

Comment - We are currently discussing abolishing the newspaper for a lack of edits. The RuneScape wiki has had over 10million hits in the last month, and if we can't get one done, it's going to be hard here. Let's hold off for now until we get this developed a little more. I'd rather see our time spent on bettering what we have rather then leave it alone and work half-fast on another project. 21:27, 4 May 2009 (UTC)
Comment yes i am aware that its is failing. however if we could write the news papers a few months in advance we could have 2 or 3 ready for for the coming months. and maby i could offer a reward for each article.--godpower49 13:12, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

Oppose - I think that we should focus on getting the wiki up and running. Templates, formatting, policies, etc, let's get those and everything crucial to a wiki completed. Also, we have very few editors and very few things to write about. The game hasn't been released yet. Maybe in the future, but not now. C.ChiamTalk 13:16, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

Comment Well i did not mean as soon as mechscape was out of course we have to get the wiki up and running first.--godpower49 13:26, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

Well, even if the wiki was up and running and the game was out, I doubt it would be successful. Not that it's impossible, but just take a look at the people at RS Wiki trying to make one. I see low-quality stories (e.g. the noob who went to noobland and did some noobstuff, etc) and stories being churned out at the last minute (due to editors' real-life commitments, time constraints). I think we too need a lot more users before we start this paper. C.ChiamTalk 13:36, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

Comment It's a good idea but we need more people to edit it. Sysopcrown 3xJapol1Australia serv Talk | Guest book 08:26, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

Comment I think we realy need to get the wiki started and concentrate on content to start with rather than a newspaper. I am currently planning something though which may be linked to this... He he he... --Goodison Goomba 19:02, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

Oppose - Although I love to have one here, I don't see many editors. RuneScape wiki has a paper also, but even with our number of editors, there aren't much editors for the paper.WikiPowers38(Talk) (contribs) (#) 09:01, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

Closed - There is no consensus to have a MechScape Wiki newspaper. C.ChiamTalk 13:16, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
