Is there a rewritte tag?

If there isn't any rewritte tag, create it.

No. Rewrite tags act similarly to Stub templates, which are useless since according to Masson Thief, they don't work on wikis like this type. And Reception Wikis are not informative wikis. Whenever people make articles, they should always work on their drafts on their sandboxes first before importing it on the main pages. Otherwise, incomplete pages get deleted.

Remember, ONLY delete pages that do NOT deserve to be here, some articles of shows that were well received were deleted because no one improved them, and stub templates aren't useless, they can motivate people to improve a page.

Even when a template is on an article nobody tries to improve said article. Not to mention it's fucking pointless since we can easily see how poorly made those articles are. We don't need a template to remind us of that.

That's an awful claim, Jordon. We don't delete pages because they're "well-received" we delete pages because they're badly written. Have you read some of the articles? If not, read this and this.

TheChisatoFan (talkcontribs)

Exactly. We don't need new templates. We only need more quality control towards the articles we write. Which is why the well-written articles stay here while the low-effort ones on the other hand usually get deleted; regardless of how well-received a show gets.

Um, no.

Look, adding one would be like saying “You don’t need to put any effort on this page”. Soon pages with that will flood the whole wiki.

I'm starting to wonder if the horrible pages are being made by underaged users.

Seewater514 (talkcontribs)

That's exactly what happened when we had the stub templates, some users would make very half-assed pages and then slap the template on top.

Kesner (talkcontribs)

Yeah we don't really need a rewrite tag. I got bored of seeing those on ATYW.

HalJordan008 (talkcontribs)

Thats why I want to leave BTSW and (probably) TTSW, admins can't improve certain pages which is something bad.

Trevor807 (talkcontribs)

They can be improved, but only in the sandbox. Adding a template like this encourages users to half-ass pages. Even if they can be improved, said users never do that. This is one of the pettiest reasons why anyone would leave.

Sadly,I can't add images via my PS4.

Trevor807 (talkcontribs)

Plus, with the template, quality control will soon be rare.
