This is a notification to users that the protocols outlined in RS:EXCHANGE have been implemented:

  • Special:Abusefilter/39 has been disabled.
  • The older ge update script has been enabled, and the newer version has been disabled ([]).
  • A notice has been added to Template:Wiki News.

The GED has been down since 25 Nov. I was hoping it would be fixed before the end of the week, but apparently not.

On another note, I feel the wording on Template:Wiki News announcing the bug could be improved, possibly with a link to instructions on how to update the prices. I don't feel it's hugely obvious. cqm 10:28, 30 Nov 2013 (UTC) (UTC)


Is there a page where we keep instructions for updating the GEDB prices when it's down? MolMan 16:18, November 30, 2013 (UTC)

There's an old gif floating around of how to edit the page to update the price, but no page detailing how to update pages using either script as far as I'm aware. cqm 01:10, 1 Dec 2013 (UTC) (UTC)
If no one has a problem with it, I'd like to write it up. Also, can we get the last updated timer on next to the submission. People tend to ignore going lower and it's annoying to see things like Exchange:Nature rune go through 5 extraneous updates. MolMan 01:12, December 1, 2013 (UTC)
Dunno if this helps but it might be what Cam was referring to? [[:File:Price update tutorial.gif]]. sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 06:07, December 1, 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, that was it, but it's long since outdated. I think the main focus of the guide should be images of where to enter the price and how to get to Exchange pages (through the info link).
The timer thing is certainly easy enough to add in - I'm in the process of rewriting the two scripts into one at the moment so I can add that in. cqm 10:02, 1 Dec 2013 (UTC) (UTC)
That's one reason why I want to make sure no one has a problem with me writing it: I plan to upload a couple new images to the wiki for use in the guide. MolMan 14:45, December 1, 2013 (UTC)
I have no problem with it. It's not like we don't have images to help in guides elsewhere. cqm 17:16, 2 Dec 2013 (UTC) (UTC)

Made some minor adjustments...   az talk   01:34, December 3, 2013 (UTC)
The guide is otherwise good and presentable? MolMan 16:02, December 3, 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, it is well written...   az talk   22:38, December 3, 2013 (UTC)

Some images can be cropped, especially 1 and 5. I thought of doing it myself... but didn't have the time to do it. Sorry!   az talk   03:12, December 6, 2013 (UTC)

Update The GED is up and running. The following has been implemented:

Anything else?   az talk   01:45, December 3, 2013 (UTC)

Closed - Exchange pages are updating automatically again. RS:EXCHANGE will be amended to reflect the new update help page. cqm 23:52, 8 Dec 2013 (UTC) (UTC)
