Forum:Fresh Start for All Pages
We would like to share some important news about every page on the Old School RuneScape Wiki.
Pages are an important part of the wiki experience at Weird Gloop. They are literally the way a Wiki functions. However, we at Weird Gloop have decided that for a very weak reason we will not go into, that they're not very good and we will subsequently be deleting all of them.
Of course, as the wiki is several years old it naturally has a lot of pages. The Old School RuneScape Wiki has existed since 2013, which is at least six months ago. This is a wonderful and fantastic feat that was made by several editors over the years. Unfortunately, as a part of this page deletion intitiative, all users have been banned. Sorry. That's how it is. Feel free to appeal in the discussion section of this thread, but I won't listen.
Some of the Old School RuneScape Wiki's pages have not been edited in several years. If nobody is editing them, then what's the point in keeping them? There is none. As such, they will be deleted.
We understand that this action may seem quite extreme - However, we don't really care.
Thank you. Zil.

STRONG Support - it's the only way forward as I see it, there is too many pages containing templates, links between pages, and other problematic elements. Considering the sheer amount of content on the Wiki, we believe that it would be beneficial for the wiki's pages to have a fresh start of sorts. Thank you for suggesting this fix - Liz. iN008talk 03:29, 1 April 2019 (UTC)

Support — I think that rocks. You are erasing history, and the truth is you are doing it out of awesomeness, and you know it. You will probably delete this message too, but that's actually okay. It's really good that people who generated so much income and increased the traffic to these wikis for so long are to be given a fresh start, just because they made a choice to move. It's a chad move. --laagone talk 06:51, 1 April 2019 (UTC)
Support - Masuta forced me to do this, please send a SWAT van to my house. This is not a joke07:28, 1 April 2019 (UTC)
- Strong support - Hi it is me again. Giving even more support. With all the new content that is being added, there is simply not enough binary space on the wiki hard drive to add more pages unless some are deleted. So go, they must. For the greater good.
