Sixth Age conflict

The Sixth Age conflict page is wildly redundant, and has been a source of conflict with an edit war on the name. However, the real core of the issue is that the page itself has no reason to exist as a stand-alone page in the first place. Almost all information on the Sixth Age conflict page can be found on the Sixth Age page, having been outright copied and pasted from there, making this new page completely useless. Making matters even worse, the Sixth Age page is woefully under-updated, with a serious tone, grammar, and information issue as-is. Forking the page elsewhere just means the original page doesn't get the attention it needs. I believe that the Sixth Age conflicts page needs to be entirely deleted, and any work on that topic should be redirected to the Sixth Age page instead. Any "new" writings on the Sixth Age conflicts page, if there are any, should simply be ported over to the Sixth Age page.

'Keep for now' - I don't completely disagree with Amascul/La Morte. However, other "wars" do have a summary page. I'd like to hold off until we can get a member of the Jmod Lore Council to give us a name for the whole The World Wakes to Sliske's Endgame time period. If Jagex/Lore council refuses to give a name/title, then delete. --Deltaslug (talk) 02:01, February 22, 2018 (UTC)

'Delete' - I have to agree, this page has not been given any attention. If there was battles,then it could have been kept. But due to little information, and the fact that these events don't really need to be here, there are more pages as well that requires to be deleted, like the battle for the stone of Jas. I think this page should be removed. It isn't given enough attention (as the invasion of Falador is missing) and it is an exact copy of the Sixth age page. I agree for it's deletion. If a Jmod does give the event that is happening within the sixth age a name, it can just be added to the Sixth age. Guthix symbol Adventurerrr Talk The Godless symbol 02:38, February 22, 2018 (UTC)

Oppose - We've got Gielinorian God Wars and Third Age after all. Rewrite it rather than delete it Template:Signatures/Ciphrius Kane 14:31, February 22, 2018 (UTC)

However the Third Age page covers the whole of the age, while the God Wars page covers a bullet pointed list of the events and conflicts of the God Wars, as well as a list of tactics, the various battles, and the end goal. The "Sixth Age conflicts" do not have that same continuity, and are a spread out series of random skirmishes over a variety of things, like anima, power, for fun, at Sliske's prompting, and for the Stone of Jas. Until we have an actual Second Gielinorian God War, there's no reason to group the events of the Sixth Age on a second page, when the events on the Sixth Age conflicts page are the same events as on the Sixth Age page. It's like Wikipedia having a page on all conflicts in the year 1994 as if they were a unified group of battles rather than separate events, when all that information is also covered on a page about the year 1994.

Since there seems to be confusion here, this a comment only. I am neutral on this topic, and this is neither a support nor an oppose. Please stop assuming a position that I did not state. Small recharge gem AnselaJonla Slayer-icon 14:44, March 5, 2018 (UTC)

Oppose - I think per RS:GRAN it should stay. It could be updated definitely but if we delete it and just rely on the Sixth Age page it could get extremely long and tedious. I also believe that some of these other pages should not be deleted. There is a fair amount of lore that people would search for by the name. We could just redirect them, but where do we draw the line of what is necessary as a page? User:Zafryna/Signature 17:48, February 22, 2018 (UTC)

Remember though, every one of those events has actually taken place in-game, and thus has their own separate page on the Wiki. If a player wants to know about Nomad's Elegy, they can *go to that page* and learn about it. The Sixth Age page makes sense as a location to discuss all of the Sixth Age events, since almost all of them thus far relate directly to the Gods and their various conflicts, and can direct you to the page about the actual World Event, Quest, Skilling Update, or anything else. Why do we need two pages covering the exact same events, with the exact same writing? Amascut symbol Amascut Ia Morte 23:56, February 22, 2018 (UTC)
It could easily be a stub. That is just my thought. User:Zafryna/Signature 17:25, February 23, 2018 (UTC)
