I'll put this bluntly. The {{Solomon's General Store}} navbox is... yikes. There are so many items spread across 6 different subnavboxes that it can be a pain to find what you're looking for, even if you have Solomon's Store open in a different window to aid your navigation. That is why I propose the following solutions:

Ordering:
A - Order everything alphabetically
B - Order everything as it appears in Solomon's Store
C - Keep as-is

Icons:
A - Add icons (for an example, see {{Cape}})
B - Keep as-is without icons

Categories:
A - Mimic the categories of Solomon's Store (eg: "Wardrobe" would contain Outfits, Accessories, Combat gear, Effects; "Loyalty" would be merged into "Outfits" like it is in the Store)
B - Keep the categories we currently have

I look forward to seeing everyone's opinion on this. My contributions Dalek SecTalk to me 09:15, 12 January 2020 (UTC)

Additional point - We could also have a separate navbox for discontinued SGS products like the demonflesh or shadow stuff. This wouldn't address the main issue, but it'd knock off a small handful of things. Achievements Coelacanth0794 Talk Contribs 22:51, 12 January 2020 (UTC)

Comment - So, I would be in support of having icons, HOWEVER there aren't really any icons that can be used, if I'm remembering correctly. How would you propose we go about that? Badassiel 23:10, 12 January 2020 (UTC)

We could use the icons used on the items' pages, for example File:The Risen Pack icon.jpg. These would of course be given the dimensions of an icon, eg: The Risen Pack icon.jpg My contributions Dalek SecTalk to me 06:38, 13 January 2020 (UTC)

Comment - There's also the mess called Template:Members Loyalty Programme which was merged onto the store many years ago. I suggest we do the same and deduplicate stuff. Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 12:28, 13 January 2020 (UTC)

Comment - Is it an idea to make a navbox for each shop category? That way, no navbox would be incredibly big and complicated, and no page (bar, perhaps, Solomon's General Store) would have its page size quattuordecupled because it happens to be an SGS item.

Full support for Psi's suggestion - That's what I was planning to do anyway once I got around to it. :P Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 18:18, 21 January 2020 (UTC)
Support Psi's idea - This is a great idea, and I feel like it would improve the overall fashionscape navigation experience a lot while keeping things clutter-free. My contributions Dalek SecTalk to me 07:48, 23 January 2020 (UTC)

Support Ordering[A], Icons[B], Categories[A] - Great ideas--my only qualm is that the SGS images (on the scale of navbox icons) would be too small to be useful and would add unnecessary clutter. I support Psi and Salix' suggestions as well. Guthix balance flask (4).pngAikhana TalkQuest.png 00:39, 23 January 2020 (UTC)

Support Psi's idea - Will improve readability and ease of updating Talk to Kelsey 21:52, 28 January 2020 (UTC)

Support Ordering[A] / Neutral on icons / Categories[A] + Split (per Psi) - I think alphabetic order will make it easier to find what you want more easily. I don't mind the icons but they will be a pain to add if people end up wanting them. I like psi's idea of splitting each of the current navbox's subgroups into their own navbox. Additionally, idk how I feel about making 'Loyalty' it's own navbox too. Meeeeerds msg 04:34, 2 February 2020 (UTC)

Closed - there is support to split the navbox into navboxes for each shop category and for the contents to be arranged alphabetically. There is no consensus to add images. Magic logs detail.pngIsobelJTalk page 21:04, 9 February 2020 (UTC)
