I think we should create a fourm on what page should be created to discuss it before creating it

For example if you want to create a death page, frist create a thread in the Page creation fourm to see what others would think and vote yes or no on it.

the problem is how do you make editor follow this rule. Most of the newbies are not even aware that there is a forum on this wiki and those are the ones which could create a page worth discussing. Kdom 21:26, May 13, 2010 (UTC)

In terms of having a discussion before creating a new page as a rule, it's a bit of a thing that can't be easily enforced. There are lots of variables I believe, including the ones stated by Kdom. While having a discussion beforehand does indeed help things out, it's not exactly something that usually pops up first in most wikias. Doing some hard work on a page, later finding out that most of the community doesn't agree with it, and having long discussions maybe a hassle in most cases, but at least it's less of a hassle of constantly submitting page approvals for every new page idea that comes up.Mugiwara Franky 12:19, May 16, 2010 (UTC)
