I know this isn't a huge problem, but I've noticed there isn't a uniform agreement on which style to use for grouping the zeros for amounts at or exceeding 1000 in articles. Here are the three that are used:

  • The comma (1,000). This shouldn't be used at all since it is American notation.
  •   (1 000). It leaves a space between the groupings.
  • Nothing (1000).

I would prefer the last one over anything since it's very easy to use. --Sαcrε (edit my sig) | (edit my user page) 00:49, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

The answer is comma, since Jagex uses commas. Actually, there is a style guide regarding numbers, see this. --
