I've redesigned the layout of Exchange pages to incorporate the GEMH image better. See this. Feel free to comment and discuss. Thanks.   az talk   04:14, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

Looks great. - TehKittyCatTalk Wikian-Book 04:22, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
I can't think of any way to improve it. --Degenret01 04:28, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
Looks nice, though my only complaint is that the bones icon and link are both left justified. Perhaps they would look better centered? Karlis (talk) (contribs) 04:40, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
On second thought, maybe just bigger. It easily gets lost in all the wording on the page, imo. Karlis (talk) (contribs) 04:41, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
I've increased the font size. The icon and longest item name for "Herb tea mix (harralander, marrentill, and guam)" has been included for comparison.   az talk   06:05, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
Looks great, but kinda big. Maybe you should make the important info (price, last price, update date) bigger, while other secondary info, smaller. Balance iz powa!4ndrepd TalkContribsStupid monkeys actually have a use...Jump to the God Wars II! 13:30, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

Support - It looks nice and this time we get graphs which help a lot.Runecrafting.gif Mo 55 55 Talk|Sign 07:47, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

Support - Per Mo FredeTalk 08:24, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

Support - Looks nice, but could we use __NOEDITSECTION__? The [edit] links kinda spoil it. Other than that, looks good. Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 12:52, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

Support - They look really nice, but is there a way to get rid of the section edit links? cflm (talk) 13:33, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

Oh sorry I just saw Gaz's comment XD cflm (talk) 13:35, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

I've added the NOEDITSECTION thing.   az talk   03:45, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

Support - But about the graph. Is there some sort of coding for them or is it just an image that gets updated every now and then?--Joe Click Here for Awesomeness 16:58, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

It is just an image.   az talk   03:45, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
Well then what do we do when the image gets out of date?--Joe Click Here for Awesomeness 13:46, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
It gets updated by a bot. See Forum:Uploading new GEMH images.   az talk   14:32, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
Ohhh. Excellent.--Joe Click Here for Awesomeness 14:35, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

Slight Support - Nice, but looks a little bit messy. Everything's so big. Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 21:36, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

Support - I like it. But why are both bones and herbal tea mix on the same page?  Tien  23:18, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

Never mind. Heh, I need to read discussions more carefully.  Tien  23:20, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

Question for 4ndrepd and Oli4burggraa: What is big? Could you explain further?   az talk   03:45, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

I think all of the text and images are too big. It looks messy with all those things so big, it hurts my eyes. Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 17:26, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
If you compare the old design and new one, the text size has not been changed. I've only added some section headers, and added the GEMH image. Confused   az talk   12:39, 6 July 2009 (UTC)
I meant the headers. It looks cramped with the headers and the image touching each other. It looks like there was hardly enough space on the page. Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 13:39, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

Question Can someone explain how you can access these pages apart from clicking update exchange price then saving the page? --Serenity1137 09:05, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

Assuming "these pages" are Exchange pages, they can be accessed through Grand Exchange Market Watch. For example, most Fishing-related items are in Grand Exchange Market Watch/Fishing, and Slayer-related items in Grand Exchange Market Watch/Slayer. Not all of the Exchange pages are linked though.   az talk   11:57, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

Support - I think this layout looks my nicer than the current one. Vadanea 04:35, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

Question - How exactly would this work with Template:ExchangeItem? ShinyUnown T | C | E 10:53, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

I would modify the template accordingly.   az talk   10:56, 8 July 2009 (UTC)
That may cause some confusion among users who are used to the current template (like me). ShinyUnown T | C | E 11:20, 8 July 2009 (UTC)
Not Template:ExchangeItem, but [[Template:ExcgDefault]]. "ExcgDefault" is used to display the page, while "ExchangeItem" is used for "storing" the data. I won't modify anything that will "cause some confusion among users who are used to the current template". The modifications will NOT affect anything, don't worry.   az talk   11:27, 8 July 2009 (UTC)
I will definitely take your word for it. ShinyUnown T | C | E 11:29, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

Comment - I've made the changes in [[Template:ExcgDefault]]. There might be a few Exchange pages that may require some tweaking before it appears correctly. If anyone notices any errors, or if the pages appear incorrectly, please comment here or at my talk page. Thanks.   az talk   05:36, 13 July 2009 (UTC)

Closed - Please use [[Template talk:ExcgDefault]] for any feedback. Thanks.   az talk   04:46, 18 July 2009 (UTC)
