Exchange prices

OK I took some time to put together a solution to updating Exchange prices almost automatically:

Question: In an ideal world how often should they be updated? I'm going for daily at the moment.

Daily sounds right IMO.--Richardtalk 18:48, 21 November 2008 (UTC)

Bot flag

If someone wants to mark my account as a bot account, please do. All GE price updates are marked as minor as it is.

Done!--Richardtalk 18:48, 21 November 2008 (UTC)

Exceptions;help needed

There are some 3-400 items I can't update at the moment. Help is needed fixging these up.

Most need an item ID adding - this can be found by looking the item up on Jagex's GE database and on the page specific to that item the ID number is in the URL.

There is a list Category:Exchange items with no ID and the talk page has the GE names for all GE items with their ID number Category talk:Exchange items with no ID

Items with other problems will also tend to show up at Category:Grand Exchange by date updated I developed this some time ago to assist with manual updates.

Ok, I will try to add some item ids this weekend. - TehKittyCat 22:41, 5 December 2008 (UTC).
All finished, the only remaining ones with no item id are ones for speedy deletion. - TehKittyCat 18:08, 6 December 2008 (UTC).
All of the pages in there have been deleted or fixed now. - TehKittyCat 20:06, 6 December 2008 (UTC).

Update to updates

I've modified the process to only write changes in the normal course of events. The current run needs to complete, thenceforward all prices will be updated only if they change or on Wednesday or Saturday (this is partly to pick up new/fixed items). Rich Farmbrough, 18:31 21 November 2008 (GMT).

Now my kitty curiosity is tingly, where is the base of operations of "the process"? ~kytti khat 18:51, 21 November 2008 (UTC)
Where? On my desktop. I suck the data from Jagex, compare with the previous and make a list of things to change, then cycle through the GE items and change them. Rich Farmbrough, 16:05 22 November 2008 (GMT).
