It would be quite usefull and I see no reason to not do it

Sure we could use the calculator but this would save time there time, just like magic.Fllour 19:51, May 29, 2010 (UTC)

By magic i mean magic spells.


Comment - It's already there isn't it?   Swizz Talk   Events!   19:52, May 29, 2010 (UTC)

Comment/Request for closure - No, it's not there, but it is here. HaloTalk 19:56, May 29, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - Be bold and just do it. Something like this doesn't need community approval. ʞooɔ 22:30, May 29, 2010 (UTC)

One, he doesn't know how to do it (why he made this), two there's no need to add it to an already crammed chart when the calculator above has them. HaloTalk 22:34, May 29, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - I think it should be added. However, this doesn't really require a YG thread. bad_fetustalk 23:03, May 29, 2010 (UTC)

That's been said multiple times...I'll just add a link. HaloTalk 23:05, May 29, 2010 (UTC)
Well, you said that we shouldn't add it. I'm opposing what you said. It's okay to vote, isn't it? bad_fetustalk 23:07, May 29, 2010 (UTC)
How's that? HaloTalk 23:09, May 29, 2010 (UTC)
Waste of time. bad_fetustalk 23:48, May 29, 2010 (UTC)
It doesn't serve any purpose to make a duplicate of that calculator. HaloTalk 23:49, May 29, 2010 (UTC)
Then remove the calculator. bad_fetustalk 23:52, May 29, 2010 (UTC)
That's not necessarily true. Compare Defence potion to Calculators/Potions. They both have the Coins/XP for making the potion. ʞooɔ 23:56, May 29, 2010 (UTC)
That makes no sense whatsoever. It further crowds an already crowded chart. Be bold if you must, but as all points have already been stated here, I'm not going to go through another fruitless conversation. @ cook, that chart isn't crowded, so it's okay. HaloTalk 23:53, May 29, 2010 (UTC)
I'd be bold and do it if I could. I've no idea how calcs work. I also am not good with tables. bad_fetustalk 23:55, May 29, 2010 (UTC)
The chart isn't that crowded. bad_fetustalk 23:59, May 29, 2010 (UTC)
I could do it easily, but I don't see much of a purpose in wasting 30 minutes for getting it all formatted right when it's 1 click away. HaloTalk 23:58, May 29, 2010 (UTC)
Well, after you waste your precious 30 minutes, it won't be away at all. bad_fetustalk 23:59, May 29, 2010 (UTC)
I would rather use it to make other edits, that would be more beneficial. As it is my time. HaloTalk 00:06, May 30, 2010 (UTC)

Why not just do something like we do with spell costs? Spirit wolf below. Making this pouch costs {{#expr:25 * 7 + 1 + {{GEPrice|Wolf bones}} * 1|n}} coins, plus a Gold charm.

'''Making this pouch costs {{#expr:25 * Number of shards  + 1 + {{GEPrice|Secondary ingredient}} * 1|n}} coins, plus a [[(color) charm]].'''

Could even make a template for it, something like

Making this pouch costs {{#expr:25 * {{{1}}}  + 1 + {{GEPrice|{{{2}}}}} * 1|n}} coins, plus a [[{{{3}}} charm]],

where the use would be something like

{{Familiar cost|7|Wolf bones|Gold}}

ʞooɔ 00:00, May 30, 2010 (UTC)

That should work. bad_fetustalk 00:01, May 30, 2010 (UTC)
Wait, are we adding this to familiar pages, or the "Summoning Familiars" page. I thought we were adding it to the Summoning Familiars page, where we would need another column or two. If we're adding it to the specific familiar pages, I have no problem doing that at all, and I'll get started right now. HaloTalk 00:06, May 30, 2010 (UTC)
I'm not sure. The way I took is was on Summoning familiars' pages (such as Spirit wolf), rather than on the actual Summoning familiars page. But I don't know. ʞooɔ 00:10, May 30, 2010 (UTC)
That would make perfect since and be good in my opinion. HaloTalk 00:11, May 30, 2010 (UTC)
Should I draw up a template? It should be easy enough. ʞooɔ 00:12, May 30, 2010 (UTC)
Go for it. HaloTalk 00:14, May 30, 2010 (UTC)
Template:Pouch cost. It doesn't work on the template page, but it works when it's used :/. ʞooɔ 00:16, May 30, 2010 (UTC)
I'm in over my head, I'll figure this out later. ʞooɔ 00:37, May 30, 2010 (UTC)

Support - Sounds like a great idea.Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 00:13, May 30, 2010 (UTC)

I believe we agreed this shouldn't be on yew grove, and we are just discussing here because no sysops want to close it it. HaloTalk 00:14, May 30, 2010 (UTC)
True that, it does come under RS:BB i think.Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 04:56, May 30, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - Come to think of it, why is this not in Template:Infobar Summon Pouch? I'm a regular user and I approve this message.  TLUL Talk - Contribs 00:57, May 30, 2010 (UTC) 

Because we were waiting for a brilliant mind to come along and suggest it. HaloTalk 00:59, May 30, 2010 (UTC)
You can stop waiting now Lol I'm a regular user and I approve this message.  TLUL Talk - Contribs 06:40, May 30, 2010 (UTC) 
I was going to be bold and add this but I decided not to.
!colspan="2"|Cost to make
|{{formatnum:{{#iferror:{{#expr:{{#if:{{{cost|}}}|({{{cost}}})*1|{{{shards|1}}}*25+1+{{GEP|{{#replace:{{#replace:{{{tertiary|Wolf bones}}}|[|}}|]|}}}}}}}}}}|0}} coins
Takes the input number of shards and multiplies it by 25, adds 1 for the pouch, and adds the GEPrice of the tertiary (removing the square brackets, since the tertiary is not automatically linked). In the event of a calculation error (inputs missing, exchange page for input tertiary does not exist (untradeable items)) 0 is output. Some familiars (e.g. Ice titan) use more than one tertiary will also cause a calculation error (there is no Exchange:Air talisman, Water talisman page), but is perfectly calculable (neither are untradeable), so there is a manual override - whatever |cost= is taken as a priority over the autocalculation, and is within the error checking.

Request closure - No more discussion and RS:BB. 222 talk 07:27, July 4, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, this is just taking up space right now. ʞooɔ 19:57, July 4, 2010 (UTC)
