VFD for all Skulltag item and monster articles. Propose a redirect and merge into Skulltag article. Some discussion on this issue can already be found here and here.

I'd suggest merging into Skulltag weapons, Skulltag monsters, Skulltag items: The Skulltag article would balloon rather a lot otherwise. I'd like it to be on an article-by-article basis, rather than a sweeping judgement. -- Jdowland 17:13, 29 November 2006 (UTC)
Actually, the articles we have at present wouldn't swamp Skulltag, but if all the redlinked ones were created at one paragraph each, I think they would. -- Jdowland 17:15, 29 November 2006 (UTC)
This is what I was thinking; if necessary in the future, items/monsters/weapons could be broken out into categorical articles. Right now, it isn't necessary. Bloodshedder 22:49, 29 November 2006 (UTC)
Most such articles are currently about one sentence in length, and IMHO the paragraph-long articles are somewhat rambling and could be rewritten to look like this or this without cutting anything important (though I may be biased, having never used Skulltag).  So, despite the ambiguity in our written policy, I am starting to agree with Bloodshedder.    Ryan W 23:44, 29 November 2006 (UTC)

Ok, whilst policy discussions continue at Doom_Wiki:Central_Processing#Big_Important_Policy_Discussion, it might be worth explicitly itemizing articles for this VFD, and voting.

Vote to delete the following articles, as a whole:

Doomsphere, Drain rune, Haste rune, High jump rune, Invisibility sphere, Prosperity rune, Rage rune, Random powerup, Reflection rune, Terminator, Terminator sphere, Time freeze sphere, Turbosphere.

I think we should reset the clock and give this vote another week to run. Jdowland 12:06, 4 December 2006 (UTC)

  • merge the material into Skulltag and delete these articles. -- Jdowland 12:08, 4 December 2006 (UTC)
  • Merge and delete as above. Bloodshedder 21:22, 4 December 2006 (UTC)
  • Merge viz. the policy proposal described at Central Processing.    Ryan W 01:00, 5 December 2006 (UTC)
  • merge All the Skulltag extra features would be easier to read, not having to click a link for every item. A short sentence would easily describe each item and not clutter the page. -Catoptromancy
  • merge to Skulltag and delete as per above. By the way, Catoptromancy, you can use ~~~~ to leave a signature after a VFD vote. -- TheDarkArchon 00:08, 20 December 2006 (UTC)

Merging occurred, but the above "itemized" topics were not all treated uniformly, despite every post above saying they should be.  This has now been fixed.  In addition to the links at the top, semi-related threads are here and here.  HTH.  Ryan W (living fossil) 13:09, 6 April 2019 (CDT)
