I'm not so sure if this is wiki-material. Can you argue why it is? --Hunter (talk) 15:44, 18 December 2015 (UTC)

This is not appropriate for the wiki. --Jay13x (talk) 15:38, 18 December 2015 (EST)
Agreed. --Sene (talk) 22:55, 18 December 2015 (UTC)
I would argue that the current page is ineligible for inclusion, as its only (uncited) source is a low-permanence forum thread. However, I do think we can entertain the possibility of a theoretical page on a similar topic, if such a thing ever became noteworthy enough to warrant its presence (independent website, outside reporting on that website). We do have a page on Magic Set Editor, and I think that coverage of fan-made creations is reasonable as a creative subheading of the broader metagame topics we cover. And I'll amend this to say: any such coverage should be held to very strong standards for notability. A good portion of this wiki is very light on citation, and some of that is reasonable. For example, on rules topics, we have the CR included on each page as the final arbiter of truth, so there's relatively little sense on demanding an outside voice to interpret it. Outside of that category, though, anything we cover needs to prove its worth, and the volume of player-made content would be grossly excessive if those articles were held to the same weak standards many of our articles are today. --Corveroth (talk) 00:21, 19 December 2015 (UTC)
Agreed on that this page is not wiki-material and should be erased. --Tuamir (talk) 01:58, 19 December 2015 (UTC)
