# RuneScape talk:Style guide/Money making guide

This talk page is for discussing the RuneScape:Style guide/Money making guide page.

## Untitled

Just write down the section your method is under, and the name of your method, what your attempted calculation was (e.g. 500 trout - 500 raw trout)and what your problem is. We'll fix up your coding for you, and try to explain it on your talk page so you don't need us next time.

i dont know how to add stuff to the money making guide, but would liek to share this, yes i did read the "how to add stuff" but... anything smacking of programming turns my brain off...

buy 14 buckets, milk a cow, churn to cheese, best place is seer village run to sinclair mansion, milk the cow there, churn, lodestone back to town and repeat, later slice en masse, comes to 56 per slice so 560 per wheel, thats 7840 per trip, havent timed it but its not that long.

you could also just buy milk from the person there, still at profit im sure. 216.232.237.187 04:57, February 19, 2013 (UTC)Taithyl

## General Questions

I don't get how to express the expression format for something, say a Yew log, minus the price of a trout, minus the price of a lobster, plus the price of a Coif. Anyone know how I can input so many variables? Fruit.Smoothie 07:01, 5 December, 2009 (UTC)

I asked the same thing a few days ago, at Forum:Template to add/subtract GEPrices and get a total. You may want to bookmark that page, as Gaz explains it better than I.
The code you're looking for is:
`{{formatnum:{{#expr:{{GEPrice|Yew logs}}-{{GEPrice|Trout}}-{{GEPrice|Lobster}}+{{GEPrice|Studded leather coif}}}}}}`
which would give you
920
Which is correct. 07:29, December 5, 2009 (UTC)
Does that solve it for ya? 07:30, December 5, 2009 (UTC)
Don't forget for individual item prices over 1,000 coins you use `{{GEPrice|item|n}}` to remove the comma (compare `{{GEPrice|Dragon bones}}` (1,393) with `{{GEPrice|Dragon bones|n}}` (1393)); this is because #expr: throws a fit when unrecognised symbols (such as commas and square brackets) are used. 15:58, December 5, 2009 (UTC)

Alternatively, you can use
` {{Coins| {{GEP| Yew logs}} - {{GEP| Trout}} - {{GEP| Lobster}} + {{GEP| Colif}} }} `
This method yields red or blue numerals preceded by the coin picture.
Note: White space is your friend. It helps you and me read and edit the page easily. Also, the convention is capitalizing the first letter of the first word and leaving the rest lower caps.

## Unfixed

If anyone fixes anything in the "Unfixed" category, move them to the Fixed category

## Factual correction

I noticed the tip regarding general deflation of items in runescape is actually quite misleading. While some items, primarily end products from skilling (smithable armors, potions, runes, etc.), tend to decrease in price, many more items tend to inflate over time. For example, in summer 2009 silver ore was ~200gp come summer 2010 its now ~300gp. Having saved ~1000gp in ores in the bank over the period i was able to make an additional 100000 gp with NO additional work. Similar price increases can be observed across a range of high level items as well, including whips and certain rare dragon items (platebody, claws, etc.). While this is not always true, as can be seen by the price drop of gold ore over the same period(~400gp->~200gp, although this was primarily due to the addition of concentrated gold), it is almost always more effective to invest at the very least in raw materials than to simply let the gold sit in the bank for long periods (i.e. >1 month) when saving for a large purchase.

Encouraging people to sell their items, by blanket qualifying them as continually losing value is factually wrong and should be corrected. While it is simpler to save coins it is not fiscally more efficient. The runescape economy is by no means static and there is a continual push and pull between the deflationary nature of increasing numbers of items on the market and the inflationary nature of a general rise in the total number of coins in the market. A money making guide should make this explicitly known rather than apply a blanket statement that is only valid for those with low net assets.
