Default Time limits

I've been working on incomplete pages, and I can tell you that some incomplete pages are embarrassing. Some of them haven't been worked on in months, started by drive-by users who never come back. Can we impose a time limit on how long these pages can stay? And, by extension, how long a page can be considered "Work in Progress?" As stated in the rules, "Quality, NOT Quantity: Lame or Weak Pages are discouraged"

I was thinking six months for incomplete, and one month for work in progress, at least for movies. TV shows, given the longevity of some shows (Anyone want to help with the ''Law and Order" page?) might take some more consideration.

And I think we should define just what a completed page is.

I think this is a really good idea... I'm too am tired of all the incomplete and poorly made pages by "drive-by" editors.

All weapons that could reasonably be identified present with at least one image per weapon and description of where and how it appears, correctly formatted with a lead-in paragraph describing the work briefly, and (preferrably) no redlinks (ie all pages built for guns and actors).

When you say "one image per weapon," do you mean an image of the weapon or a screencap?

A screencap. I wouldn't think a page was complete if it had no actual proof the weapon appears at all.
