OK. We kept it around as long as we could, but we have decided to get rid of the Forum-posted Tier Lists (previously part of the main Wiki Namespace). There are a number of reasons for this decision:
It's entire subjective
As much as we'd like it to be, Tiers arn't based on fact; at least, not facts that we can directly quote another source on (since I'd argue one of our main strengths is as a content aggregator). This therefore adds room for player interpretation, and then it becomes a problem as we have to then moderate the page; even then, there is no 100% agreed upon listing that satisfies everyone.
People were taking this list as 100% fact
This page even got linked to from Reddit, where this page was confused with an actual article on the subject. While an understanding was reached about the nature of this page, it's still something that shouldn't happen, and since SEO will invariably link to a page like this in Google, it had to go.
It's a moderation nightmare
Reaching back to #1, this page has caused far too many arguments, and the content inside doesn't really justify the time investment the Admin team puts in to keep it under control.--TwoTailedFox (My Talk Page) 02:52, August 29, 2014 (UTC)
