Forum:Money-making guide - Moving Content
As we may all know, the money-making guide is our most sought-after and popular article here on the Wiki. That's why, being the standard-setter it is, I'm planning on making some BIG, BIG, AND BIGGER (no sexual innuendo here) improvements to it.
Proposal (Applies to the corresponding P2P articles too!)
- Merge the Merchanting article with the Miscellaneous article, and merge those two with the Collecting/Gathering Resources article, then combine to form one giant guide called "Miscellaneous/Merchanting money-making methods"
Why do I want to do this? If you take a closer inspection, you'll find that all three of those articles are very similar: all of them involve buying/finding items with low risk, low price, and selling them to the Grand Exchange for higher prices. I intend to name the new merged (3) guides into a big guide, still part of the money-making guides, called Miscellaneous/Merchanting methods. This would reduce the confusion I see arising out of newer players, as they do not know what is the difference between those articles. Also, this could save on space and time by having to search individually.
Basically, every single method going into this Miscellaneous/Merchanting guide will HAVE to conform by the following proposed guidelines:
- Will have to require gathering/collecting or
- Will have to require buying products/items (usually from stores) at low and selling at high or
- Will have to require non-skill involved aspects
I'm going to go ahead and perform this major task, as I do not think any major negative implications or concerns could occur, I've already asked Rwojy for approval, and he said to go ahead. If you want to help me, then do so. Any questions or comments can be left on my talk page.
EDIT: Ahhh crap...I need some help with the formatting -_-
EDIT #2: NVM, just finished =P. Go and took a look and post what you think! I broke them up into three parts to make it easier to read, and hopefully, the text sequence/layout won't be broken/overlapped.
EDIT #3: Overwrote all six corresponding articles, which have now been redirected separately, three for F2P and three for P2P, six in total.
Just finished =P, took about two hours T_T
- Edited the money-making guide template to accommodate the removed articles now.
- Redirected all six pages (Collecting/Merchanting/Miscellaneous for both F2P and P2P).
- Merged the two Grand Exchange merchanting articles together, redirected inactive pages now, edited template accordingly.

Support - Can't hurt to try, and seems like it's going to work fine.18:33, January 9, 2010 (UTC)
Closing proposal implemented long ago we just never closed this.--Degenret01 06:03, March 24, 2010 (UTC)
