To Rar especially, this page does need to go into great detail about why you might want to do something, or the details of what happens. It is sufficient to give general guidance. The problem with giving detailed and precise guidance is that if you miss something out, people will complain "the wiki didn't say <blah> was dangerous", so it's better to be general, not specific. An example is identifying named NPCs that shouldn't be attacked, people might think that attacking other named NPCs was ok. [[User:Zexium|Zexium]] 17:55, 15 July 2009 (UTC)
