Forums: Index Stellar Garage Articles aren't factual, delete?

I've noticed that alot of pages have been created referring to supposedly in-game things, even though the game isn't released yet. How is it even possible to create these pages, what are we, psychic? I was under the impression that this wiki was based on fact, shouldn't we enforce that? I know we have {{Template:Not confirmed}}, yes, but when the whole article is based an editor's thoughts/opinions/guesses/experiences in RuneScape, then the template shouldn't be used at all and the article should be deleted. There's no sense in having articles based on someone's guesses or "what they think".

Factual information is greater than speculation, people.

Some examples, which just take information either from RuneScape and the RuneScape wiki or and editor's brain and just plop them onto our wiki "because it might be in the game":

  • Weight (RS uses weight, who knows if SD will? The article blatantly says it's a fact, by using the word "is", but then it says the information is disputed. What sense does that make?)
  • Gold (Carried over from RS, again. The Legend of Zelda uses rupees, what makes you randomly think MechScape would copy their other game and use gold? "MechScape/Stellar Dawn is not RuneScape in space", said Jagex.)
  • Etc.

The only real "game content" articles that should be kept are subjects that have be confirmed by Jagex that they will be in the game. For example, Mortiga, Mech, Pliigi, Missions.

Support - Per Diriz, it really is complete speculation. C.ChiamTalk 14:06, December 30, 2009 (UTC)

Support - I have been posting and creating pages I know where confirmed by a Mechscape sponsored source, or by a Mod themselves. Thats what I have done when I created Missions and I expect everyone to do the same. -- 16:28, January 20, 2010 (UTC)
Support - As per above. 15:44, January 21, 2010 (UTC)

Support - Enough said really, this wiki is supposed to be based on fact. --TheShadowXi 15:17, July 15, 2010 (UTC)

Support - There's really no reason to provide info to people if the info may be incorrect. --StrikerBack 19:50, July 15, 2010 (UTC)

Support - This hasn't been acted on for months, but some, such as Pliigi should be kept just in-case Jagex decided to carry over this idea just as some concept art was done. Also mentioning, seeing as there are few files on this Wiki, why not go and use the proper templates for correct licensing unlike what the sister Wiki, RuneScape, has done.

Request for closure - We really don't have much of a community right now, so I'm sure this reaches consensus. Implementaion, pl0x? I'll help find more articles like such when I have time. ..Lil Diriz 77 T C E. .
