Hello all! As many of you may know by now, RuneScape has just recently released Ironman and Hardcore Ironman modes. Certain items in these modes, like the Batwing torso, are obtainable in Free to Play, but unobtainable in Ironman Free to Play without previously have been a members account. It is possible to figure this out only using the wiki, but is very tedious and not uniform at all.
Take the Batwing torso for example. On the page itself, it says (in the infobox) it is Free to Play accessible; However, it says in the body of the page that it is only craftable by Members.
To make the wiki more uniform, I propose that inside the "Infobox", below whether or not the item is member, we insert a "F2P Ironman" to let users know whether or not a certain item is obtainable or not in Free to Play Ironman without previously being member.

Oppose - I don't see what this would accomplish that reading the prose wouldn't. If the prose isn't clear (like it currently isn't on Bat wand), just change it. MolMan 21:44, June 26, 2015 (UTC)

Oppose - To be honest, this would add a LOT of work for something that I don't think is incredibly significant. Most items that are F2P-obtainable through GE only should have that information on the page itself, and if it doesn't have it there is a reason to add it. Overhauling the item infobox is a bit overkill in this situation, in my opinion.

Oppose - It should be clear from the article. Also if an update causes an item to be available to f2p either by creation or a monster drop, then it would need to be updated in more places.  YayEpicYay Talk! Random Fun!!  23:53, June 26, 2015 (UTC)

Oppose - was it really that recent? It doesn't seem like it was, but either way, my oppose is per Psionic. 7kyt1iT.gif --WINE OF GOOD HEALTH (Actually Stinko) 00:02, June 27, 2015 (UTC)

Depends if you consider 9 months recent or not. Korasi's sword.png Archmage Elune  TalkHS Void knight deflector.png fetus is my son and I love him. 03:26, June 27, 2015 (UTC)
I continually ponder proposing an addition to the style guide banning the word "recent." --Saftzie (talk) 03:51, June 27, 2015 (UTC)

Oppose as proposed. Rather than F2P ironman-specific, it would make more sense to add an Ironman? field with values Yes, Members, or No. There are some things even P2P ironman accounts can't get currently. However, those things can change. For example, Jagex has said it continues to look for ways that ironman accounts can participate in team bossing. Minigames which ironman cannot play are also intended to be playable someday. Locking content was just easier than rewriting the entire game all at once. --Saftzie (talk) 03:17, June 27, 2015 (UTC) [[Free-to-play items that require membership to obtain]] -- is this basically what you're looking for? Why not expand that page instead? ʞooɔ 04:06, June 27, 2015 (UTC)

Oppose as the others have said. Plus all it takes is a Jagex update to change it. Suggest it to Runelabs, Ninja Team, twitter #NinjaFix. Post it up as an item that is missing from F2P shops anyways (same with items like Rune hatchets). They might eventually add it. --Deltaslug (talk) 16:18, June 29, 2015 (UTC)

Not in infobox - It shouldn't go in the infobox to keep it simple, but it's definitely worth putting in the body of the text. Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 11:10, July 1, 2015 (UTC)

Closed - Proposal will not be implemented. --LiquidTalk 22:35, July 11, 2015 (UTC)
