What needs to be removed from it?

Anything that's not listed in my above response.... -Poodle of DoomM! Fear is only as deep as the mind will allow it be.T 19:42, 29 March 2010 (BST)

Characters, locations, duplicated pages (like this), group-specific terms, skills or equipment, etc. For hate's sake I spit my last breath at thee 19:46, 29 March 2010 (BST)

Why not just put the whole thing up for deletion,.... there's nothing in the category that is really worth anything, so why even have it? -Poodle of DoomM! Fear is only as deep as the mind will allow it be.T 22:43, 29 March 2010 (BST)

I think the following pages should be removed.

Agreed with all. For hate's sake I spit my last breath at thee 19:56, 29 March 2010 (BST)
As I should of explained above, i really want the glossary to include everything a player may encounter in game, or in conversation. The above don't fit the bill, they're too obscure or pointless. That doesn't mean hundreds of pages. Zombie Skills for example would be a good page to add. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 19:58, 29 March 2010 (BST)
I've seen a fair few people use the term "RKer" in-game before. The others are fairly uselss though.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 20:54, 29 March 2010 (BST)
Agree to all, I guess. I like Cow Tipping, just because it's a well-known fleshed out idea, but it's true that it doesn't get mentioned much in-game. Aichon 21:16, 29 March 2010 (BST)
Let's see here.. I'll mention/name/etc those on the list above that I have an opinion about. And yes, I'm probably doing this the wrong way. And in the wrong place. And I probably haven't quite understood the concept of merging, either.
  • Remove:
    • Cabal -Doesn't exist delete. Seriously. Enough is enough.)
    • Division/Quadrant/District - Does anybody use these? Seriously? I don't see any possible use.
    • Greater Becktown - There is not need for it, nor for "Greater Grayside" or anything like it.
    • Lamportians - Useless, generic and apparently only exists in the mind of one guy.
    • MFD Fire District - Doesn't really warrant an article. Should, if anything, be merged with their group page.
    • Pistol Ninja - I see no use for it, nor have I seen anyone use the very silly term.
    • Quisling - Doesn't seem to exist in real life, the only group is long gone and in a twisted way, I feel offended by the name. Delete or perhaps merge with Death Cultist.
    • Riots - Delete. Do I have to explain?
    • SKing - Never seen it been used. Plus, too many of these names. Delete or somehow add into Bounty Hunters.
    • Wabbajack - While I love the Eternally Blessed Madness of the Mad Prince, I see no reason for it to exist here at all. Other than to mess with our heads.
    • ZombieJesus treatment - No - Point - At - All. This - Is - Malton!
  • Redirect:
    • BKer - I've never heard the term, redirect to Griefing where it's already included. Or something.
    • Mayor - Pointless. To me it seems like it should simply be redirected to Mayor of Malton.
    • TKer - Pointless. Redirect to Player Killer. The term doesn't really apply to this game.

Come to think of it, I probably should have done some research before doing this.. Meh. Infrastructure 16:43, 30 March 2010 (BST)


Anyone think that perhaps a vote similar to the FA vote would be appropriate for articles to be placed into the glossary? -Poodle of DoomM! Fear is only as deep as the mind will allow it be.T 20:33, 29 March 2010 (BST)

id rather fix what we've got, before moving on to the adding of new stuff. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 20:36, 29 March 2010 (BST)
Not keen on a voting system. Too much hassle and fuss really. For hate's sake I spit my last breath at thee 20:40, 29 March 2010 (BST)
It's a category, there is no vote, if it doesn't belong it gets removed. -- To know the face of God is to know madness....Praise knowledge! Mischief! Mayhem! The Rogues Gallery!. <== DDR Approved Editor 20:49, 29 March 2010 (BST)
How do you suggest we prevent individuals from coming back, and screwing it up as badly as what it is now? I've heard no other suggestions.... -Poodle of DoomM! Fear is only as deep as the mind will allow it be.T 20:52, 29 March 2010 (BST)
This is a few years' worth of accumulation. We can leave that problem up to those of us still playing in 2015. Tongue :P For hate's sake I spit my last breath at thee 21:02, 29 March 2010 (BST)
Oh great,... I'll be dealing with it then too huh? Should ther be something in place though,... a process of sorts? -Poodle of DoomM! Fear is only as deep as the mind will allow it be.T 21:37, 29 March 2010 (BST)
Definitely not voting. I think it just needs a janitor is all. If someone makes it their pet maintenance project, things should be fine for a good long while. That person or persons can sift through the new entries and deal with them appropriately. I'm not suggesting we appoint someone, but rather that someone just do the job, basically. Aichon 21:41, 29 March 2010 (BST)
Like I say, it's low-maintenance, really. Even the odd one-off tidy-up will keep it looking grand after this. For hate's sake I spit my last breath at thee 21:50, 29 March 2010 (BST)
Yeah, much like orphans or the GSGM, this'll only need occassional updates.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 21:58, 29 March 2010 (BST)
Agreed. After this, it should be another few years before it needs any coordinated tidying again. Aichon 21:59, 29 March 2010 (BST)
If all it needs is a good old fashioned tidying,... why are we talking about it instead of doing it? -Poodle of DoomM! Fear is only as deep as the mind will allow it be.T 22:19, 29 March 2010 (BST)
Red and I were having a similar discussion. I think it's probably a matter of which pages to remove it from and who does it. (Although the latter won't be a major issue).--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 22:47, 29 March 2010 (BST)

Its really a housekeeping issue. Much like the first GSGM, 5 years of accumulated junk, needs cleaning and then updating. Have a look at Iscariots suggestions on his WIP page. Doesn't seem a bad suggestion. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 22:59, 29 March 2010 (BST)
