    As part of my overall attempt to clean up the site, I will be rebooting Suggested Reading (this) from scratch. Meaning, since I am unsure of all the works in the category being worth the category name, I will be removing them all and sorting it out over time. Some works do not need to be there: Others do. Some should be in there but aren't. (I think. Maybe.)

    This is a notice that will be highlighted, so that anyone who wishes to be notified will be notified.

    • That seems extreme, especially considering that there's very little chance of you managing to singlehandedly read through every article on this wiki. If you want to clean it up, why not just read through what's in Suggested Reading and decide what DOESN'T belong in there? That would be a lot less work, and you'd have a safety cushion if something came up and you weren't able to finish the task.

      Wiping it completely doesn't seem like a wise thing to do.

      At this very moment, it's safer than it is sorrier. It's not necessarily reading through every article, it's simply that I think a better approach would be to wipe it until the wiki is semi-cleaned up and built back up. Yes, there are good works that were removed that should belong there; no doubt. But there also could be better. What I'm saying here is that at this very moment, SR should remain fairly clean until everything is sorted, so that we don't end up with shit-quality works in it. I'm not saying that nothing will be added back to it (as noted on the category page, it's asked that you at least contact me before-hand), but that it should be rebooted from scratch and remain mostly empty.

      This is also because I'll be reworking the rules and QS, and updating them, so until then SR should stay cleaner until the standards are fully updated to account for it.

    • But you won't know if something that deserves to be in Suggested Reading is in it unless you DO read every article, if you wipe it. You say your goal is to improve SR, but that's not what you're doing. You can't be bothered to improve it so you're just emptying it and hoping things work out. You're throwing it completely to the wind instead of just reviewing what's in it. If you're worried about SR lining up with the updates to the site, you should update the site first before touching it. There's NO benefit to wiping it like you're doing.

      But it doesn't seem like you wanted any feedback from other staff, as I gave you my recommendation and you completely ignored it and kept going. I'm not going to clean up your mess.

      I already have a starting basis as to what will go back into SR. I'm simply taking the current easiest route. I'll make a list of articles that will be going back into it, as well as any new articles. Simply put, there is no mess to worry about. I have it planned out.

      Perhaps it may not be the best route, but right now it seemed to be the simplest route without reflecting poorly on the site.

      EDIT: Don't get me wrong here, Xel. I trust your advice and I'm taking it into consideration. You're right; I can't read every article on site. Part of the reason I opted to wipe SR was so that it, with the rest of the site, could be overhauled entirely. Even if you don't agree entirely with my methods, I hope you'll help me out in other areas of the site. I didn't come back to let site stuff get in the way of friendships I've made on site; I had enough of that when I first left.
