Reducing to 100 items?[edit source]

I think that 1000 item is a bit steep... Prehaps we could lower it to somthing more resonable like 100? --Cabbage detail.png Dockywho Talk Cabbage detail.png 16:39, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, I agree. I rarely have 1000 of an item I'm looking to sell. ~ Fire Surge icon.png Sentry Telos Talk  20:14, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure the discussion is still ongoing here. Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 21:15, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

This was a great idea[edit source]

I just love the fact that they have this now.. So where do we advertise anyway
Coaster4321 Talk # Sign GG 19:57, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

I guess you can advertise your sales under the sections. If you plan on buying items that are worth less than 50,000 coins, as in, each separate is under, then the buying part is for you. Same goes for the selling, but the high level is the ones that are worth 50,000 coins plus for each item. ~MuzTalk 19:59, 23 April 2009 (UTC)
I think the limit of items should be at least 100 NOT 1000 Thats too MUCH! seriously that is what i think ^_^. I have over 500 Baked potatoes ... and ... i cant just make over 1000 and sell them it will take forever.. it should definitely be 100 Coaster4321 Talk # Sign GG 23:52, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

The item limit has been reduced to 100.   az talk   07:24, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

Additions?[edit source]

If you look at the page now, you'll see I have an offer up for 700,000 buckets. There are two suggestions I have because of this. First off (as I suck at templates) there should be a "none" option for skill - not all items can be placed in a skill category, and wantedpages are bad. Second, a section for buyer/seller comments? Like, for me I would write that I'll only buy at least 200 at a time. A seller may say you must buy a min of X items, etc. Yes/no? Christine 08:05, 26 April 2009 (UTC)

The "skill" parameter has been modified not to wiki-link by itself. So, "None" or a combination of skills may be used. The "notes" parameter has been added as requested.   az talk   08:44, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

?[edit source]

I like this idea but where do we advertise? Reeser111 23:23, 26 April 2009 (UTC)

Here? Use the MarketBulk template:   az talk   08:46, 27 April 2009 (UTC)
{{MarketBulk
| skill    = Skill (i.e. Fletching, Herblore, etc.); default: none
| item     = In-game item name (i.e. Yew longbow, Attack potion, etc.)
| qty      = Quantity
| user     = Wiki username
| display  = Displayed name
| rsname   = In-game username
| datetime = Date/time in UTC; use ~~~~~
| notes    = Additional notes (if any)
}}

Service section[edit source]

There should be a section for services as well as buying/selling(ie. smithing a certain amt of bars for profit), it would allow other players to level up whilethe other player doesn't have to worry about their time.--{{SUBST:Nengex}} 16:10, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

Lending[edit source]

Would it be a good idea to have a lending/ borrowing section so people can borrow each others weapons? Just Wondering =),

I came to this talk page to discuss the same thing... I have Bandos Armour and a BGS sometimes that I woulnd't mind lending out. May make a little bit of money =). Can we get a Market for item lending out? Prayer.png Jedi Talk HS Log Tracker Summoning.png 18:05, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
Added a section for Item Lending.   az talk   11:32, 21 May 2009 (UTC)

Assist Question[edit source]

Could this be used for people that are working on skills and are willing to give assistance to others to gain xp. The same goes for people that need assistance. If something already exists for posting it can someone post a link to it? Mathwiz908 20:43, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

I think that could just be solved by joining the cc, or asking on a talk page, rather than new section of the page for it. Although, It could work, I'd need to know more about it.

I like the idea of an assist part. Could be useful for questers. Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 12:07, November 2, 2009 (UTC)

I like it too, but Im no good at coding.~~Signed,Bulbear4444Slayer's respite.png~~ 19:58, January 27, 2010 (UTC) Bold text

Oil, that would be great for questing...if you were allowed to use Assistance for quests. Anyway, I do think this would be a good idea, and on the page post the times you are usually on in your section! The Mistress of Poison 01:37, May 18, 2010 (UTC)

Item Limit[edit source]

Please consider re-introducing a new limit, as 100 simply isn't enough for some of the current offers. It's breaking the formatting. Fruit.Smoothie 04:46, May 4, 2010 (UTC)

Are you guys.. seriously out of my mind?[edit source]

Seriously? I thought I had the idea over the weekend, which when the market didn't come and I am thinking how I am making this layout.. and you stole it from my mind? --Rsrealm 22:00, May 4, 2010 (UTC)

Item Pics[edit source]

I think it would be much easier on the eyes if we had the item pics instead of the name, especially when people have a list of items they're willing to lend/buy/sell. I Fight 329 01:02, May 18, 2010 (UTC)

The names are much easier to understand, and you don't have to go get the links to photo, can just use name. HaloTalk 01:03, May 18, 2010 (UTC)

Item Lending section[edit source]

I think it would be better to have an item lending section which has images as well as other details about the items. This would not work for selling and buying but might work with lending as the range of items lent or desired is a lot smaller. Take my lending page for example: User:Pharos 5/lending and we just add the names of who can be contacted to borrow the items at the end as well as their respective rates. - [Pharos] 04:59, June 22, 2010 (UTC)
