Page deletion[edit source]

While I'm not sure why you have an affinity for an empty sandbox @ Project:sandbox versus the empty one linked to from the front page, I would suggest that if you are going to delete a page linked to from the front page it would be beneficial to alter that link to the correct destination.

I'm also not quite sure what the benefit of deleting Characters is yet leaving it linked to from the front page. It simply transcluded all of the characters with there still being links below to go to specific character pages. - Rasputiny (talk) 23:27, 6 December 2012 (UTC)

Was there any discussion prior to the deletions? If not, it may be that we need to implement a basic deletion policy that will outline the process of tagging/discussion/deletion. -- Wynthyst User Wynthyst sig icon.png talk 23:30, 6 December 2012 (UTC)
The only deletion discussion I was aware of was that PaxMedidia did not want the weapons to be grouped into several weapon-type pages, but preferred a large, master-list- therefore suggesting we delete Firearms, melee, and likely ammunition, grouping them all onto a single page. - Rasputiny (talk) 23:34, 6 December 2012 (UTC)
I apologize for being a bit rash with my deletions. The characters page seemed to be to simply be clutter from the wiki transfer, as it just transcluded a bunch of pages onto it--I did not see the need to discuss it (unlike with melee) because I did not think its deletion would be controversial. I seem to have been wrong about that; what exactly did you want to do with the page? My general policy on deletions is "discuss it if other people might disagree, just be bold if it's probably fine", and I agree that it might be good to write a proper policy on the matter. As for the sandbox, the difference is that one was in the project namespace (as sandboxes should be) and the other wasn't. In any case, I should've checked the links and whatnot before deletion, sorry about that. PaxMeridia (talk) 00:24, 7 December 2012 (UTC)
