Instead of repeating the rewards again at the end of quest quick guides, just link to the rewards section of the full guide. For example see Tai Bwo Wannai Trio/Quick guide.

No - Everything is already a repeat from the full guide, just with stuff left out. Why give them a quick guide and then make them click to see the rewards? It's just a copy/paste, no reason not to do it. list it on the quick guide page. Degenret01 (talk)

Your comment confuses me, what do you mean with your last sentence? Would you like to see the rewards copy+pasted on the quick guide, or do you want no mention of them since it's a quick guide? P.S. See comments below. Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 17:45, October 24, 2017 (UTC)

Comment - I feel like the quick guides should contain all the information that players would need, without making them have to check back to the full guide, with rewards being part of that. Perhaps a template of quest rewards could be used to keep the same information on both guides, but that seems like a lot of work for something that would only be used across two pages?

Actually, what you're describing is what {{Quest details page}} already does, so we could easily make that for rewards as well, since I went through the trouble of templifying the rewards section earlier this year. :) Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 17:45, October 24, 2017 (UTC)

Oppose/Comment - The rewards should definitely be listed on the Quick Guide page in my opinion, and should not require clicking a link. If someone is using a quick guide to save time, why would they want to waste that saved time clicking on a link to a different page for full rewards? If it is easy enough to do, I would support listing rewards via template on the quick guide pages as Isobel and Salix mentioned. Otherwise, rewards for quests are not something that is going to change often (if ever), so it isn't that big of a deal to just copy them over once from the regular guide and let it be. Should they ever change for some reason, it would be a quick thing to manually fix. So, I don't personally see the need to template this, but I wouldn't oppose that either.  RS AdvLogMyles Prower  Talk 18:00, October 24, 2017 (UTC)

An example of the template is already live on Tai Bwo Wannai Trio/Quick guide. :) Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 18:04, October 24, 2017 (UTC)
I say we do that. Maybe this is what was meant originally, anyway, and I was confused? When I read the post, I was thinking that suggestion was for something like "For rewards, click here to read the full quest guide." Therefore, just so my opinion is clear, a "click here" is what I opposed. Templating them from the standard guide onto the quick guides I am in support of.  RS AdvLogMyles Prower  Talk 01:57, October 25, 2017 (UTC)

Oppose: There is no benefit in redirecting users to another page, nor is there any advantage in bandwidth to load the entire article for just the rewards section. --Chicagolight (talk) 05:35, October 28, 2017 (UTC)

Support for templating the rewards onto quick guides - Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 08:24, October 25, 2017 (UTC)

Support - if Salix is willing to make all the required templates (or find help to do so) then this would at least ensure consistency between the guides and save a little time if rewards are changed in future :) Magic logs detail.pngIsobelJTalk page 09:56, October 25, 2017 (UTC)

Actually the only thing we'd need to do is adding the following to each quest quick guide:
==Rewards== {{Quest rewards page|Name of quest}}
That would be all the work really, template is already in place. :) Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 11:18, October 25, 2017 (UTC)

Closed - Go ahead and do it. The template seems to work just fine, and the content doesn't change, so this is not a change in policy or content at all, which means you can just RS:BB and go ahead. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 20:25, November 4, 2017 (UTC)
