RuneScape talk:Grand Exchange Market Watch/Uncategorised

This talk page is for discussing the RuneScape:Grand Exchange Market Watch/Uncategorised page.

Untitled[edit source]

Please keep this page at the very least until I have finished with my GEMW project. I added this so I can quickly create all un-made Exchange pages without needed to update every Grand Exchange Market Watch/<category> every time I make a new page. When I am finished, I will move all of the pages on this one to their appropriate article and change the Exchange page to reflect their appropriate article. If anybody needs a project, feel free to move them yourself and change the Exchange page. If decided to be kept, this may prove to be a beneficial page in the future for those who want to create multiple exchange pages in a short amount of time.

You could have used the Grand Exchange Market Watch/Miscellaneous page for uncategorised items.   az talk   16:49, 31 July 2008 (UTC)
I could have, but the items I'm placing in this category will eventually have a category. Those items don't fit into another category. I'm just using this as a placeholder for now. Karlis (talk) (contribs) 17:10, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

Listing errors[edit source]

I'm finding items listed here that when I click on the edit, it goes to a blank page (e.g. Thach spar is listed 3 times and all 3 are blank because it should be thach spar light, med and dense.) Also, a page which has had the category changed still shows up because the item entry was not removed from this page (e.g. Desert legs, robes). I recommend just removing the table and using a What links here link instead which would avoid errors due to naming as well as automatically removing articles when the new category name change is made.

Works for me, and saves time of having to update it all the time too. Karlis (talk) (contribs) 20:25, 2 August 2008 (UTC)

Uncategorised vs. Temp[edit source]

Recently added Exchange pages are being assigned to Uncategorised category instead of being assigned to a proper category. This has led to some confusion about the Grand Exchange Market Watch/Miscellaneous which are items which do not fit any of the existing GEMW categories. These new Exchange pages should be assigned to a existing category when created. If this is not possible, maybe using Temp instead of Uncategorise would be better. Once the 'What links here' has been cleared out, then this page should be deleted. Chrislee33 05:08, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

This page was created so I don't lose the items that I make GEMW articles for. If it bothers everybody so much, just delete it. Karlis (talk) (contribs) 05:13, 3 August 2008 (UTC)
It is apparent to me now that the use of this page is not understood by several people, so in the future I'll just make a subpage of my userpage when I try to help, or just write things down on paper. Karlis (talk) (contribs) 05:18, 3 August 2008 (UTC)
The subpage idea sounds like a great idea. Chrislee33 06:53, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

RS:NPOV[edit source]

Can someone please change this so it fits RS:NPOV? I'm not feeling up to it.--

Keep?[edit source]

Well I finally cleared this all out, and the idea was to delete it after it was clear. However, as it is now used in the addexchangeitem template, I feel this should be kept. This is to avoid new exchange pages from simply not being linked to a GEMW page. As it has been cleared, it won't take long to recategorise new exchange articles that are added here. I'd like to get input from others though. =) Karlis (talk) (contribs) 03:42, January 27, 2010 (UTC)
