Deletion/Moving[edit source]

I was unsure about creating this page, whether to create a standalone page or put it in some kind of community section. Personally I believe the list is relevant as a subset of community resources. MikeWard1701 23:31, 21 March 2010 (UTC)

I meant to comment on my deletion note, but I was in a hurry and forgot to. If we include Podcast information, then by right we should include information on all other Star Trek Online-related websites. I just don't know if there's a real need for pages like this that would simply send other people away, especially since I was considering podcast for STO Wiki in the future. Maybe adding the deletion tag was a bit hasty. I'd like to hear what others have to say on this.
But if we do keep this page, how would we link to it? Being orphaned ensures nobody will ever get to see it. –TerranRich (ETC) @ 07:57, 22 March 2010 (UTC)
I got here only by looking for orphaned pages specifically. Imho, there's (currently) no need for this page here on this Wiki. "Yes" to Deletion. -- Markonian 17:01, 13 May 2011 (UTC)
I respectfully disagree with "by right we should include..." Podcasts are a very specific production-value resource, and in general are more widely consumed by users than text heavy websites (otherwise, why even consider a STOwiki podcast? ;). Two years after TerranRich's comment, STOwiki is now established, and "sending people away" should no longer be any concern, unless there is also a policy against links to Memory Alpha/Beta? ;) A community Podcast page doesn't need to include fan sites and forums, nor does it need to become a collection of links to dev interviews.
In my view, if it lands on the front page of the official game site, it's a resource with production and entertainment value. Perhaps worth arguing for such a policy would be whether to include newsletters and magazines, such as 12th Fleet's (I'm reading their dstahl interview right now.) There are also podcasts that are less supportive of Cryptic which never would get promoted by them, and an impartial list such as on the wiki would be a reasonable place of inclusion, for people who want to seek that viewpoint in that format. --Brackynews 19:54, 2 May 2012 (UTC)
Since it still hasn't been deleted two years later, I think it has a place. Perhaps under the Community Portal area? Logic:
A) Where else but a wiki can/would you go to find an always up-to-date (and generally impartial) list of podcasts and resources?
B) Podcasts absolutely do promote STOwiki.
C) The dev interviews by a multitude of podcasts absolutely do provide information and insight that gets used on the wiki.

I agree. The community events vote sets a precedent for this. The page stays. --Zutty 10:57, 10 May 2012 (UTC)
