Talk:Need before Greed

From Star Trek Online Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Is this page really necessary? It doesn't seem like something that a Wiki website should have on it.
I believe a brief description of the need-or-greed system is a good idea, but making an article purely on a point of etiquette seems wrong.
See: STOWiki:About - Section: What is Canon?

Probably not, maybe if there is a page about how the games various loot systems work, it could be combined into said other page.

I don't see where the referenced section is against etiquette content due to the last point: "Events that occur in the game, as well as observations made by players within the game." Naturally, we shouldn't start calling out loot ninjas by name, but the general observed expectations of the player base are, IMO, completely within the scope of our coverage as long as a neutral point of view is maintained.
My concerns about the articles are more organizational. I think it'd be better to have only the Need before Greed page and change Need, Greed, and Pass into redirects. The idea of a single page describing the loot systems is probably even better. Eyes User-Eyes-Sig.png 09:02, 24 July 2012 (UTC)

If you give instruction on how to make a page redirect (yes i don't know how), i can go through and combine them all into the Need before Greed page. (Still new to this Wiki code stuff)

This page describes creating redirects, and this page is a good place to start for wikicode in general. Eyes User-Eyes-Sig.png 09:39, 24 July 2012 (UTC)

Thank you Eyes. i will make the necessary changes tomorrow (as i will make it a page about all types of loot system, with UI screenshots and all that, it will take me a while to get the images and such)
