Fandom needs to make business decision, no argument there. You need to RuneScape gold block vandals, no argument there. You need to remove links to the new site, yep, valid business decision. Saying that deleting old user pages is like painting an apartment for new tenants still makes no sense. You didn't change the wiki background pic, page layouts, formats, or anything else people actually see when they visit article pages. Very simply, it is an act of petty vengeance, and everyone knows it. If you want some petty vengeance, go for it. Just have the integrity to admit it. Right now your above reasoning sounds like Trump babble, and everyone stares and thinks "Is he serious? Does he think that? Does he expect people to believe that? There's no way..."

From our point of view, most are either very old and unused (in which case this is a housekeeping measure), they contain problematic content such as templates that generate redlinks elsewhere, for instance (also a housekeeping issue), or they were used to direct people to the new wiki (which we don't allow for reasons explained above). Those that are currently used for legitimate purposes or even just missed for nostalgic reasons, we're very happy to restore. That's also a way of taking inventory of people who are still/newly around and want to engage.
We may still change the background image or other more visible aspects of the wiki, if we see room for improvement somewhere. We're not changing everything about the wiki
Can you clarify what specifically about the user page deletions strikes you as petty and a pure revenge act? Mira Laime @fandom (help forum | blog) 18:11, April 3, 2019 (UTC)
You realise deleting everybody's userpage + especially signatures is gonna create even more buy old school rs gold redlinks? ?? KelseW (talk) 18:23, April 3, 2019 (UTC)
