A few hours ago I made some new shop pages for the OSRS Wiki, and came with the thought about something. Why do we have Category:Shop stock images when we list the items the shop sells right below it?

For example, the Stock section of Ignatius's Hot Deals first places the image ([[:File:Ignatius's Hot Deals stock.png]]), which shows what the shop interface looks like, and then lists the item the store sells. Seems kind of redundant.

I, for the life of me, can't think of a reason we keep these around. I'm proposing that we delete Category:Shop stock images, along with the images contained within it. Hoeever, we should keep one and place it in Shop to show what the interface looks like.

Delete - The images duplicate the information already on the page and add very little to the article at hand. - Ryan PM 23:52, May 12, 2016 (UTC)

Deleted - one less thing to keep updated as well. Heck, we can duplicate the appearance of an inventory screen for strategy pages, so if we really want an image on shop pages, why can't we make something similar for them? Small recharge gem.png AnselaJonla Slayer-icon.png 23:56, May 12, 2016 (UTC)

Neutral - Well, I'm pretty much the few people who care, and even then I can't really defend keeping them. Although have fun with fixing links, especially in graphical updates. --Jlun2 (talk) 14:08, May 17, 2016 (UTC)

Closed - Shop stock images will be deleted. Specifically, they will be deleted by Gareth. --LiquidTalk 22:18, May 18, 2016 (UTC)

I have deleted all standard shop images. I have kept the following as examples of common shop styles:
I have also kept most shops that are 'unique', which tend to be minigame reward shops. I have deleted old shops that have become make-x interfaces (notably the Tanner interface).
Examples have been added to Shop#Interfaces. All kept shop interfaces remain in Category:Shop stock images; further wide deletions should probably be via an RfD. Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 17:01, May 20, 2016 (UTC)
