Forum:New WIGO for DAESH

We're still getting tons of reports on DAESH activities around the world. Should we consider creating a new WIGO page devoted to DAESH, or even other terrorist organizations? "What's Going on in the Bombosphere", perhaps.-- Forerunner (talk) 22:07, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

DAESH No, Terrorism, eh? It seems a little off to give them their own special little area at all . Plus how we define terrorism will come into play and it opens to many worms about what is and is not a terrorist organization/act. Plus The more general WIGO's we have and the less specialized topic WIGO's, the better tbh. We don't need a WIGO about creationism because Blogs and Clogs covers it already, and clogs (for their bullshit) and World (for their actions) does the same for most terrorist groups..--"Paravant" Talk & Contribs 23:23, 11 July 2015 (UTC)
No. I love our WIGOs but I think those we have cover it all. Any fragmenting would be just that and would dilute the idea. Scream!! (talk) 23:26, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

You have a strange conception of fun. WéáśéĺóíďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 10:50, 12 July 2015 (UTC)

It's a nice idea on paper, but without enough editors willing to keep it going it'll fizzle out like WIGO Fourth Reich did years ago. BicyclewheelModerator 11:58, 12 July 2015 (UTC)

I just don't see it working out because we already have two/three wigos that cover the topic - World, clogs and blogs (For the actions, the shit they say about themselves/others say about them and the rational things people say about them). Centralizing them in one place just makes a slow moving page that only gets edits and attention when something bad happens (or somebody says something stupid), and that strikes me as really unseemly. --"Paravant" Talk & Contribs 16:02, 12 July 2015 (UTC)
while I would love to have a one-stop-shop for links to use to shut down moronic Democrats/Obama lovers who argue that Obama "ended the war in Iraq," another WIGO doesn't really make sense.... Peace. AgingHippie (talk) 20:03, 12 July 2015 (UTC)
You could make a section on his page... =P 20:10, 12 July 2015 (UTC)
