Listing a Horse as a "Creature Page" is unneccessary, as we don't HUNT horses, we can't even attack them, even in the wild.
You are free to begin an article/information on Horses, such as Horse Trading, tact, Training, etc. If you wish, but I am *definately* deleting your second "Horse Creature" creation. --Callek 22:39, 17 April 2007 (CDT)
- By your words: "Killing a player-owned horse is currently a bug and is therefore against policy." in such case I'd rather we didn't even bother listing the article as a Creature. Also in regards to: "In the process of breaking the herd, the horse may attack the ranger. " This could be tied to an article on Horse Capturing, since unless you are breaking a herd, the horse won't do any attacking. IMO, the page is misleading, unneeded and unwarranted. I'm also not the only (or first) sysop to delete the creature Horse Article by you. --Callek 02:33, 17 May 2007 (CDT)
I'll add to this since I've also deleted the article in the past. Since you did not provide a location for said horses nor provide any real factual evidence of the ability to "habitually" hunt them, the article will remain deleted until I can corroborate your information with a trusted ranger. We aren't doing this to be confrontational. We are doing it to keep things as factual and unbiased here as possible. In the article, this is your description of the horses:
- "Horses are incredibly powerful, wicked creatures which exist only to destroy all life in Elanthia. They train on their lonely steppes, becoming more powerful by the day. They are prized by hunters for their strong hides."
While colorful, this description is misleading and was one of the reasons your article was deleted. Things need to be kept to the facts, and that description was exaggeration, at the least.
I'll concede that there are indeed "horse"-type creatures to hunt, and we have these already in our listing : Eidolon Steed. Until I see proof of the ability to actively hunt horses that isn't mechanics abuse and thus against policy, I am not going to restore the article.
In the meantime, please refer to Callek's post above for alternate horse articles to consider contributing to.
