The sidebar of the wiki contains tabs with general categories of pages on the wiki. Under each tab are quicklinks, leading to superlatives of each category or whichever pages are deemed most useful and relative to the category. However, under the Guides tab this is not the case. The links under this tab are not nearly as helpful as the ones under the other tabs, and while some may consider these tabs to be for purely aesthetic purposes, I believe a change is vital.

Currently the tab contains these links:

Money Making Guide

Treasure Trails Guide

Treasure Trails

List of quests

Money making guide/Combat (F2P)

Treasure Trails guide/Coordinates

Barbarian Assault

As you can see, 3 of the guides relate to treasure trails, and 2 relate to money making, neither of which subjects need duplicates. List of Quests is already found under the Quest tab, and if someone is looking for a quest guide, they will go to that section. Barbarian Assault is a minigame, and while it is a guide for a minigame, it does not exemplify the guides section.

I would like to propose a reassessment of these links and subsequent replacing of them. Here is one option:

Money Making Guide

Treasure Trails Guide

Skill Training Guides

Lumbridge Beginner guide

Economy Guide

Alchemy Guide

Wilderness Survival Guide

Support - I didn't even realise how unorganised that list was Lol And nice work with coming up with the new links, I didn't even know a few of 'em existed and they are very useful! Also, the 6th link is to Treasure Trails guide/Coordinates, so I fixed that in your list. Cheers, Chicken7 >talk 06:07, October 15, 2009 (UTC)

Support I would like Player guide to be added also, to help new players. ZMBHBucket detail.pngrwojy 06:14, October 15, 2009 (UTC)

Comment - Perhaps linking to Calculators would be a good idea?? Unicorn horn dust.png Evil Yanks talk 06:21, October 15, 2009 (UTC)

Support - More useful than our current line-up. Ruud (talk)(Suggest me naems) 08:45, October 15, 2009 (UTC)

Support Do you need to get consensus here on something that so obviously needs fixing? I don't think in this case you even have to be bold since your more just fixing rather than undertaking a major change. I am not the most knowledgeable policy person, but I do browse them for refreshers from time to time and think your ok to proceed. Or to be safe, ask Azliq or Robert Horning, they are both very knowledgeable.--Degenret01 12:21, October 15, 2009 (UTC)

Doesn't this require editing in the MediaWiki: namespace? It's fully protected, so the proposer cannot do it themself. Support by the way. Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 14:25, October 15, 2009 (UTC)
Oh yea. >.> --Degenret01 14:58, October 15, 2009 (UTC)

Comment - I've made the changes in [[MediaWiki:Monaco-sidebar]]. Keeping this open in case there are other suggestions or modifications to the list Smile --Quarenon  Talk 15:14, October 15, 2009 (UTC)

Comment - I preferred how the earlier method worked, but we would have had no control of which guides were included. All the links were from Category:Guides, and the 7 most popular ones ended up in the Guides tab.

We should sort out the "Guides" category anyway, so that only actual guides are contained within this category. Pages such as "List of quests" and "Barbarian Assault" do NOT belong in this category.   az talk   15:38, October 15, 2009 (UTC)
