Keep?Edit

Do we need this article around anymore? It's kind of like BCRR, where it's pretty much outdated. I suspect we could keep it, but it should probably be pigeonholed into an archive of some sort, maybe just categorized as such, and tagged to show this. Schmidt 07:36, 15 June 2006 (EDT)

There's also the element that, quite honestly, much of the speculation on this page is based on a version of the Draenei that we aren't getting. The Draenei that will be playable are essentially the Eredar, whereas this page speculates on making the primitive and shamanistic Draenei playable. It's a case where the name of the race was correct, but the actual speculation involved and the assumptions made where nowhere near being correct. Emcepticon 10:06, 15 June 2006 (EDT)
I don't think it warrants archiving. The only reason I can think to keep this article would be as a cautionary example of the impossibility of predicting future content; even when you're technically right in the prediction, you will be wrong in so many of the details so as to make no difference.--Aeleas 10:20, 15 June 2006 (EDT)
"The Draenei Cautionary Tale" does have a bit of a ring to it. Emcepticon 10:23, 15 June 2006 (EDT)
That is ingenious. I didn't think of it as a lesson. I just thought of it as a burden. Hmmm. Where would we link this from, as far as its cautionary example status is concerned? Schmidt 11:52, 16 June 2006 (EDT)
The Rumored Races page is a perfect place, as it's a cautionary tale about rumors of new races - just because you're technically right doesn't mean you can't still be pretty wrong. It still fits in Category:Rumors, as all rumors suffer from the same situation. There are probably still a few other places where speculation gets far into left field that it'd be good to wave around. "Yes, it all makes sense, but remember what happened with Draenei." Your thoughts? --Emcepticon 12:21, 16 June 2006 (EDT)
I like the article for another reason, parts of it refute the argument often made against the drainei playable race that their appearance contradicts previous lore. The article suggests that the existence of a group of unmutated drainei has been part of the lore for a will now.
Are people still trying to get this page deleted? I think that it should be kept (for the reasons detailed in the unsigned comment above mine, and for historical purposes). IconSmall Draenei Female Farseer Loloteatalkcontrib 05:21, 27 May 2009 (UTC)
I see no delete request or vote going so ... nope. User:Coobra/Sig4 05:42, 27 May 2009 (UTC)
Okay, good. That thread looked a bit like someone was debating a delete request.

Article lockedEdit

I'd like to add the speculation banner to the page, but it seems to be locked.--Aeleas 13:28, 29 October 2006 (EST)
