Article for Deletion

Delete There already is a page for Rare and Exclusive. I don't think there is a need for an article that contains both of them like this. --Pinkfae 12:29, 20 August 2006 (EDT)

Delete: Agreed, overly redundant. Although I think the Rare and Exclusive pages need a touch up. --Chrisjander 12:39, 20 August 2006 (EDT)

Comment There are a decent number of links to this. It is really a {{disambig}} page. I think it needs to exist, but could just provide a definition and links to the individual pages. --Gahoo 17:23, 21 August 2006 (EDT)

Comment I also would say that it should stay - Rare/Ex is somehow a word for itself in game terms. Maybe rather to it the other way round and delete the rare and the exeptional pages and redirect them to this page. --Gisselle 12:02, 23 August 2006 (EDT)

Comment I can see where Gahoo is coming from. Rare/Ex is a just a way of stating that an item is rare and exclusive. It might be best to treat it as a disambiguation. I don't agree with Gisselle that the other two pages should be directed to here just because this is a game term. Rather, it should be mentioned in Final Fantasy XI Dictionary of Terms and Slang. These are two different things to describe an item and should be treated seperately. --Pinkfae 12:18, 23 August 2006 (EDT)

Comment Maybe the best solution would be a page where the flags an item can have are explained, like rare, exclusive, not auctionable, and so on, and redirect all others to that page. That way someone seeking information would have all in one place, and the Wiki has no redundant information. --Gisselle 12:38, 23 August 2006 (EDT)

Keep as Disambig: If you're going to have a single page for all tags, make a category, or a single disambig page linking to the little pages. The wiki is full of redundancy, and for the most part, its good. It would be nice if they all linked back somewhere thou. --Chrisjander 13:48, 23 August 2006 (EDT)

Delete I completely agree with Pinkfae on this one. While Wiki is redundant in some areas, this is just a slang term. Rare and Exclusive are seperate in FFXI and shouldn't be lumped together. We already have categories for Rare and Exclusive and there really is no reason to have an additional page just stating all of the same. Nynaeve

I went through the Disambiguas pages and changed all instances of "Rare/ex" to Rare/Ex so only this page actually shows up on the list any longer. --Drinian 11:47, 7 September 2006 (EDT)

Resolution: Keep as Disambig
