ATLAS AR540 OGRE OGRE

Hiya my name is will I joined this wiki and posted the gun I found because my friends said it had never dropped before now you are saying it is up for deleation, Why?—Preceding unsigned comment added by Oglethorp666 (talkcontribs) 23:14, 5 March 2010

please sign posts and do not overwrite page markers. individual weapons will not be given their own page. the weapon you posted has a double title to upgrade its rarity to cyan. there is no content on your page nor evidence to support it being a non modded weapon. if you would like to advertise your possession of this item put it on your user page.   Dr. F    Chemicalweapon   Wordpress shovel   Boston globe bullhorn  12:55, March 6, 2010 (UTC)

XX bloody unforgiven

Why exactly is the Revolver- jakobs bloody unforgiven a candidate for deletion?

I agree with the above anon (SIGN YOUR FRIGGIN' POSTS, PEOPLE). This seems like a legitimate page with genuine information to offer, and a nice screenshot to boot. I bet it's just some troll who got a kick out of flagging a random page for death. TheParagon 23:48, November 16, 2009 (UTC)

Because Bloody is a random prefix. Weapon Pages do not need random prefixes. They should be in the form of "Manufacturer Model" Like "Jakobs Unforgiven" otherwise we make a page for all of them. Think if we made pages for all of these: "Jakobs Bladed Unforgiven," "Jakobs Bloody Unforgiven," "Jakobs Brutal Unforgiven," "Jakobs Primal Unforgiven," "Jakobs swift Unforgiven," "Jakobs savage Unforgiven," "Jakobs raw Unforgiven," "Jakobs bad Unforgiven," "Jakobs cruel Unforgiven," "Jakobs nasty Unforgiven," "Jakobs wicked Unforgiven." Are people really going to search with the prefix? They shouldn't, because they should realize that all those middle prefixes are randomly generated. Do you see my point? --Zaybertamer 18:36, November 17, 2009 (UTC)

I see your point, Zaybertamer

Looks like there's other people that agree with you as well: User:Raisins; has been grouping similar weapons together based upon their manufacturer model as well. This "Bloody Unforgiven" page just needs to be relocated to an "Unforgiven" page, not deleted entirely. TheParagon 03:37, November 18, 2009 (UTC)

Um hey. So I redirected it like all the others, but looking at the history, it was ACTUALLY a candidate for deletion because the original creater got the model code wrong. The 'good' page for the actual gun has also since been redirected to Jakobs Unforgiven so it's extra moot now. --Raisins 02:46, November 20, 2009 (UTC)

Republican??

what the hell (pardon my mouth) is with the Republican page? That needs to go... there isn't even a HAIR of a relation to Borderlands! --Menkis 18:27, November 16, 2009 (UTC)

Secret Fyrestone Claptrap

Just an idea, shouldn't we put up a "Easter Egg" section rather than delete this article? People aren't aware of these things, and they may be interested. I never knew about this Claptrap, and when i get on, you bet i'm gonna go look for it. --Menkis 18:33, November 16, 2009 (UTC)

There actually is a Easter egg page: Easter eggs and secrets, though it isn't very up to date - VaporizerContribs 16:11, November 18, 2009 (UTC)
It has notes in both the Fyrestone and Claptrap pages already. I've encountered trivia notes for some things written in four different articles and I've seen this particular piece of trivia written twice in one article. Such things amount to a level of redundancy that really should be cut back on if anything. -- WarBlade 03:07, November 20, 2009 (UTC)
I revamped the Easter eggs and secrets page so it's up to date and includes the things I thought were relevant. It looks like the page is only linked to from talk pages though. I would recommend providing links to the page from the relevant articles, though I'm not sure what the best way to word such a reference would be. FrozenNemesis 17:04, December 3, 2009 (UTC)

Weapon pages with prefixes

All of these pages should be deleted. People should not go searching for the prefixes when looking for weapons, because all are possible and randomly generated. If we aren't deleting weapon pages with random prefixes, then the consistent action to take is to create pages for each weapon with all possible prefixes. Ok? --Zaybertamer 18:40, November 17, 2009 (UTC)

Nasty Raptor

If you can't upload a pic, stats, rarity, or any other useful information on a weapon, then you shouldn't be allowed to upload a page. Vague recollections of guns "you saw on playthrough 1" don't belong on the wiki. And seriously, stop adding individual weapons as categories. It just makes more work for the rest of us. TheParagon 00:42, November 18, 2009 (UTC)

Wonderful Website

This sounds like the same person who has been trolling for the past three days. I hope that he doesn't share this site with his friends. This person's IP NEEDS TO BE BLOCKED. They've made this same contribution before, and will likely do so again -just take a look at their "contributions" page. I say, if they do this again, ban them. Three strikes, you're out. TheParagon 00:49, November 18, 2009 (UTC)

Melee Page

I've flagged this page for deletion because it's entirely unnecessary. It features no useful information, other than that it offers the fact that some weapons have attached spikes and knives. This information is made redundant by existing weapons pages. TheParagon 03:29, November 18, 2009 (UTC)

Torgue Chimera

That smg is a Mod/Hacked weapon, the only chimera in the game is a legendary revolver

X360 tag TwilightPanther

Category:Torgue LB40 Steel Thunder

Somebody tried to make a weapon page and made a category. I think they noticed but you can't move a category. The page they tried to make should now have been deleted/redirected to Thunder anyway. --Raisins 02:52, November 20, 2009 (UTC)

A Lilith Rumor

Why has someone put a deletion thing on it, whats wrong with it ?

Because you wrote two sentences that are already covered in the Commandant Steele article in the trivia subsection. Articles should be a something page-worthy and just a few sentences is better off as a subsection in a relevant article. -- WarBlade 12:52, November 29, 2009 (UTC)

MAL-5000BS Balanced Shock Burst

This is just a shield, and a randomly generated one to boot. I highly doubt it deserves a page to itself. -- Claptrap 00:20, January 11, 2010 (UTC)

Crimson Lance Units

The individual Crimson Lance units have been tagged for deletion and their content copied into "Crimson Lance". I object to this move on the basis that each unit has enough that can be said about it to sustain a full article and may be untagged stubs at the moment. The Crimson Lance page has become what I view a cluttered mess in the mean time. I propose that these changes be reverted. The "Bandit" article (which apparently provided the impetus for this) could also be allowed to "breathe" more by being branched for the individual units. -- WarBlade 09:59, January 12, 2010 (UTC)

I agree with Warblade on both counts: seperate pages with page links make it faster to find the information you are looking for, both from the root page and using a search tool. 91.109.105.182 18:06, January 12, 2010 (UTC)Steel_crab91.109.105.182 18:06, January 12, 2010 (UTC)

I think that individual pages is a bad idea and that mother pages work just fine. We just have to organize them properly with categories and headings which allow you to find what you're looking for.--Doctorgray 22:08, January 16, 2010 (UTC)

Crimson Lance Infantryman up for deletion?

Why? I mean, don't you want to be able to look up EVERY SINGLE enemy on borderlands? If you delete this, won't there be a gaping hole in the "Bestiary"?

Of course you do. But, if you had a page for every single enemy, this Wiki would have north of a hundred gazillion pages. It helps to just keep the enemies in one, big page or just a few smaller pages. Beetle179 23:51, January 12, 2010 (UTC)
A hundred gazillion? There are about fifty, discounting pages for specific named bosses. It doesn't help to keep them in one big page when the information is extensive enough that people have to pick through to find the content they are looking for, and it certainly doesn't help when search terms that should rightly take one straight to the relevant topic only lead to a search results page (that in turn offer selections for walls of text). -- WarBlade 03:19, January 13, 2010 (UTC)
That's what categories and sections within pages are for. For example, there is a list at the top fo this page which allows you to quickly find each candidate. Should we have individual pages for each candidate or a central repository under which all problems can be addressed? They allow you to look through the contents of the page and quickly get to the content you're looking to browse. We don't need a page for each type of Crimson Lance, nor do we need a page for each type of Skag. We need one page on each type of enemy with categories. I.E. General Behaviors, Strengths, Weaknesses, Individual Descriptions (Regular Skag, Alpha Skag...). I can understand why you might think we need a page for each individual enemy, however in my opinion we can better organize this wikia with a page for each type of enemy and sections within that page for each invididual. There are not fifty different individual enemies within borderlands, more like a couple hundred. We don't need seperate pages for Flaming Psychos and Mini Psychos. Nor do we need different pages for Arch Guardians and Sera Guardians. All the information can be easily contained in 20 or so pages, one for each type of enemy.--Doctorgray 22:07, January 16, 2010 (UTC)
Categories are a different topic entirely. They are helpful for side stepping to associated information, and that's not what I was talking about.
I was talking about searchability of specific information, and that is something that this wiki is failing at on many levels, especially with the enemy types. Take Playthrough 2 Circle of Death as an example. I want to know why my bullets aren't doing much on Hardened Alpha Skags, so I'll search for "Hardened Alpha Skag" and get rewarded with the following line of text: "No search results for that term." Puzzled by that, I then rethink (and this is what your position would force me to do every time) and search for "Skag". This time I actually get a page, but when skimming the ToC I can't see "Hardened", so the page is still not much use to me. At that point I either read more carefully, notice "Alpha Skag" and read through that, or go CTRL F to pick through the page text for what I want.
But what I really want is this: In Guild Wars if my heavily enchanted caster character starts having major problems when a Destroyer of Thoughts arrives on the scene, I simply search for "Destroyer of Thoughts" and get taken right to the page. That article tells me exactly why I'd run into trouble and also does me the courtesy of offering a link to "Destroyer" if I want to check any of its group for problems.
I'm not saying that every enemy type in Borderlands can justify, or sustain, a self-named article, but I am saying that searches should have good chance of turning up pertinent information quickly, and this idea that rolling all the enemy types into big root articles with no branches isn't achieving that effectively. -- WarBlade 23:16, January 16, 2010 (UTC)


Highest Points you have achieved?

I hate dislike people who try to make personal discussions a wiki page... DEC 42 04:03, January 17, 2010 (UTC)

id have to diss agree with DEC 42, it is a page for others to use, to show highest points they may of reached within the game, they can be hard to get, or easy. Just because an idiot wants something removed doesnt make it right, i could go around and ask a deletion on every single thing he has created, that is the beauty of a Wiki site. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Whammaster (talkcontribs)
DEC 42 is exactly right in pointing out something in need of removal. The 'article' belongs in the forum or in your personal page. As for calling people idiots, be civil to your fellow contributors or leave. Your choice. -- WarBlade 04:11, January 17, 2010 (UTC)
Well, you see, you're wrong. Unlike you, I have reason to propose the page for deletion, mainly because a Wiki IS NOT a forum, and discussions like yours don't qualify as a page... 04:17, January 17, 2010 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by DEC 42 (talkcontribs)
Yes, there is nothing wrong with what DEC 42 said. Not only do you fail to understand reasons behind the division of wiki pages and forum pages, but you run around calling people idiots, making empty threats to "ask a deletion on every single thing he has created", and refuse to sign off. But of course, if you do, we can just undo all your edits and ban your IP address, "that is the beauty of a Wiki site". Just because an idiot "diss agree"s with something doesn't make it wrong. --Nagamarky 04:22, January 17, 2010 (UTC)

Wanted: Dead! (Knoxx DLC)

I am sorry but the page I edited was the only one linked to the search at the time I was looking, and also it was the only page that actually had information on it. If you would merge the 2 pages of information together that would be just fine. I would also suggest fixing the page to include the "!" as it is part of the quest name. Which is probably why I didn't find your other page when searching this site.

  • edit* The "Wanted:Dead page seems to have been updated with the information from the "Wanted:Dead!" page. Since this has happened I reinterate the need to fix the page title to include the exclamation point in the title as a minor fix and delete the page that is up for deletion. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Haphdamnd (talkcontribs)

Memes

I dunno if this is where this ought to go, but I noticed the "do look more like" thread somebody started up for deletion, and it occurred to me, maybe there ought to be a place for that here.. I mean, Borderlands is crammed full of cultural references, and a few internet memes. Maybe there ought to be a Meme section, for inane 4chan-ish bantering. And I'm pretty sure Roland do look more like. WhackyGordon 20:40, July 13, 2010 (UTC)

bl4ckm1nd. To tag for delete, simply edit the offending article page by going into the source view and adding to the top of the page. This page here is to discuss pages that have been tagged, possibly to dispute their proposed deletion, or to resolve how the article content might be better incorporated into the Borderlands Wiki. Once the pages are tagged they will appear in Category:Candidates for deletion and get deleted in due course. -- WarBlade 13:04, September 13, 2010 (UTC)

catalyst page

The catalyst pages contents were moved to the Class Mod talk page and referred to in the Class Mod main page. Final signature 12:17, April 2, 2011 (UTC)

Please don't delete! After playing through to level 69 on 4 characters how exactly this mod worked was still a mystery and I could never find answers in the convoluted wiki. After experimenting and stop watch testing I concluded the answer.. the fact that it neither reduces base cooldown time like some skills do, nor reduces just the final cooldown time was confusing. this page concisely expains how it works. The information will be lost in the sea of the talk page. It is the culmination of many hours i have spent testing and updating this wiki site.

forums are for publishing research. if you name it correctly it will not be lost.   Dr. F    Chemicalweapon   Wordpress shovel   Boston globe bullhorn  12:38, April 2, 2011 (UTC)

I disagree. Research is painstaking and should have a place on the wiki. In the very least, any actual strategy that comes from research should be published in a category section or a main page with categories. Final signature 14:03, April 2, 2011 (UTC)

how is the forums not on the wiki? you moved it to the talk? pick a side bot. research reflects individual investment. articles are for community input.   Dr. F    Chemicalweapon   Wordpress shovel   Boston globe bullhorn  16:47, April 2, 2011 (UTC)

I understand what you are saying. I submit that articles also have research within them. I am saying that their should be a non-forum, non-talk place for known strategy. I don't know the exact answer to this, my first thought is category pages under strategy but that might not be right. Final signature 20:33, April 2, 2011 (UTC)

it does not. try to find out who it was released to (gamestop, valve, ign) or use the youtube account name of uploader. this establishes who stoled it first like.   Dr. F    Chemicalweapon   Wordpress shovel   Boston globe bullhorn  05:13, August 8, 2012 (UTC)

Mount Jackmore

I disagree with the proposal to delete and merge. The Border Lands is a complete game, as will be Mount Jackmore--if every mission deserves its own page I think each of these does as well. Furthermore, The Border Lands alone is already as long as many of the mission pages; merging Mount Jackmore will make it more cluttered, as may the promised Gun Off.

Easter Eggs & References (Borderlands 2)

Created after both the Easter Eggs and References pages were created; Has no other facts; On a slightly unrelated note, the creator of said page said that he would instead copy all of the information of the other pages to his, so his wouldn't be erased. Nothing new on this page. CrackLawliet (talk) 01:01, October 5, 2012 (UTC)

Locations (Borderlands 2)

No idea why this is marked for deletion. The suggestion that because a category page exists, an article that lists locations in greater detail is not required is simply madness.

  1. Firstly a category page is not exactly user friendly and most new users looking for information about the game may not know where to look for a list of locations. Directing them to a category page is not a substitute at all, its complete laziness. Not everyone is familiar with categories - and judging by the category mess on this wiki, they are not even very reliable.
  2. The page lists locations in detail and helps as a guide for people looking for the 5 achievements related to them. Again, why such a helpful page to users should be deleted is beyond me.

Jimeee (talk) 09:43, October 5, 2012 (UTC)

There is no reason to create a hybrid between category and article - that is why it was tagged. At a glance the page as it stands is going to wind up being quite long when all the paragraphs get added in, and the content by rights should be comprehensively covered in the separate articles rather than piled into a summary page. The user-friendliness (or lack thereof) of the category is a separate issue, and one we'll be able to resolve when the craziness and vandalism die down. The achievements are another separate issue and will have their own articles in due course. -- WarBlade (talk) 10:29, October 5, 2012 (UTC)

Android Helper Apps

I created the page. Someone marked it as a candidate for deletion because it was "obvious advertising." I get that, but I certainly wasn't attempting to advertise for any particular product. I have no relationship with any of the apps listed (other than that I tried them and thought they were useful). I just figured it might be useful for people to be informed of the fact that there are some Android apps that help w/ the game. If someone w/ an iPhone can list what iPhone apps there are (if any), that'd be great, and we can rename it to "Smartphone Helper Apps" and be platform agnostic.

BL2 Legendary: Gunerang

While experimenting with this weapon I found that if you only shoot one bullet and reload yes you can throw it like a boomerang that homes in on targets but it also takes the full magazine clip from the reserve...I tried noting this on the info page for said gun but someone has deleted it, because I'd like to make sure it's not just a glitch I'd like those in possesion of a gunnerang to please shoot 1 round then reload, if only one round is taken out of the reserve to reload the magazine I will assume it is a glitch in my game (appologies in advanced if I'm asking this in the wrong section).

/* Challenge detail pages (e.g. The Not-So-Phantom Tollbooth) */

The example page - The Not-So-Phantom Tollbooth - is up for deletion. Reason given "see Challenges". I can only assume this is claiming that the list page is good enough.

However, much like quests, challenges benefit from detail pages. Challenges, like quests, can have cultural references/trivia attached to them. As well as mini-walkthroughs/guides to help people accomplish them. For example, Cult of the Vault: a very challenging.. ahem... challenge, that involves very well hidden secrets. In addition, there is trivia attached to the example page. Without the detail page, where would that trivia go?

I actually think the challenges need to be *more* fleshed out, not have their detail pages culled.

Heizusan (talk) 22:05, October 20, 2012 (UTC)heizusan

this is the (admin) discussion so far:blands1 challenges were xp only and far fewer and mostly self explanatory. none of these apply in blands2. also whomever made the additions to the challenges page linked (relinked) each challenge to the challenges article. users predictably added those pages, mostly w/ crude vandalism, but not all. most additions were youtube videos only. eventually they will be fixed. the time to unredlink the pages has passed so i dont see any of them being deleted. the tag will likely disappear soon.   Dr. F    Chemicalweapon   Wordpress shovel   Boston globe bullhorn  22:20, October 20, 2012 (UTC)

I have no idea what could be considered wrong about this page, and the individual who marked it for deletion did not even leave a proper reason for doing so. Aside from a couple of nitpicky fixes and fleshing it out a bit more from its current stub status, I see absolutely nothing actually wrong with this page, and certainly nothing to qualify it for prospective deletion. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Benzillah (talkcontribs) 03:53, October 20, 2014

What was wrong? The infobox template was copied from another weapon article page, the template editor component of VisualEditor was used prior to that so the copied mess was all jammed onto one line as well, the term "side-quest" was brought back from the dead yet again after we've killed it multiple times already, the variants link was switched on, and the image was never categorised (and could be deleted at any time).
