Forums: Index > Rin's Travel Agency > Archive > ATTENTION: LOTS OF WALKTHROUGHS GONNA BE DELETED

Next week, we are going to be deleting walkthroughs that have been deemed inactive (incomplete and not edited by the author in the past year). As we've never done a full scale purge before, there's a lot of walkthroughs that are on the cut list. 224 of them, to be exact. I advise all walkthrough-writing users to search that list for their username or any aliases they've used here, just in case we miss somebody when sending out warnings. If I've accidentally listed a finished walkthrough, please tell me and I'll remove it from my copy of the list.

If your walkthrough is on the list but you want to keep it, there are two things you can do;

  1. Edit the walkthrough. This'll reset the timer giving you another year. Although if you do this, please try to edit it more than once a year.
  2. Move the walkthrough to the userspace. Userspace walkthroughs have no rules about inactivity, although when you do finish it'll have to be moved back to walkthroughspace before it is added to the master list.

If you need help, feel free to contact the staff or leave a message here and we'll help sort things out for you. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 04:49, November 26, 2013 (UTC)

I won't start counting down the week until I know the warnings are being sent out, and I'll likely do the users we know to be active last. It's going to take a while in any case, so the majority are going to get more than a week to do something.

I have updated the list so it's sorted by username and gets rid of some useless comments and stuff that was deleted for different reasons. The warnings will be sent out shortly. It will likely be more than a week before walkthroughs on the list are deleted, but please try to be ready before then. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 06:40, November 26, 2013 (UTC)

It's been a week, but I'm not in the mood to do mass deletes at the moment, so you've got another day or two before I start clearing things out. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 05:18, December 4, 2013 (UTC)

Your FFX walkthrough isn't on the list because you've finished the main story, which is good enough for me. You sure you want it deleted?

OK, we have finished clearing things out. I'd just like to say, that going through some of those walkthroughs is a harrowing situation, either due to bad coding resulting in infinite template loops or other horrific things or the fact that some users seem to get this idea that they can be the next BlueHighwind then just go on to make rape/discriminatory jokes. Don't do either of those please, the first is annoying (if you notice something bizarre happening with your coding, please just tell us) and the second carries a high risk of bans.

Not to be nitpicky, but shouldn't SN's walkthrough be moved so that his name comes first? Because right now it's like it's a subpage of a user named Walkthrough :p --Shockstorm 06:18, December 9, 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, two walkthroughs of his need to be fixed up. I'll ask Cat about getting his bot to fix that up tomorrow. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 08:49, December 9, 2013 (UTC)
SN seems to have fixed the problem already. C A T U S E 02:54, December 10, 2013 (UTC)

Here's an interesting walkthrough (it's just one article, but technically covers the entire game :p). If it's kept, shouldn't "Yet Another Walkthrough" be replaced with the author's username, along with removing "/Rundown" from the title, since there's no main page for it? --Shockstorm (talk) 09:02, December 16, 2013 (UTC)

Took a look and it appears to be part of an already deleted walkthrough, so we should probably get rid of it. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 09:16, December 16, 2013 (UTC)
