Updating the Grand Exchange Market Watch[edit source]

File:Price update tutorial.gif

To update the market price of items in the Grand Exchange Market Watch:

  1. Click on the edit link in any of the Grand Exchange Market Watch pages, or update in the "Exchange price" section in the item article's infobox (present only if exchange=gemw).
  2. Delete the value in LastDate=.
  3. Move the value in Date= to LastDate=.
  4. Add 5 tildes (~~~~~) to Date= to add the current time/date.
  5. Delete the value in Last=.
  6. Move the value from Price= to Last=.
  7. Add the current market price to Price= (without commas and without "k"/"m"; i.e. "42000", not "42,000" or "42k").
  8. Click the Save page button to save the changes.
  9. Go edit the next Grand Exchange page (correctly).

Just a reminder, you still seem to be updating GEMW pages without changing the date. --Iiii I I I 22:57, October 28, 2009 (UTC)
Please change the date when updating... --Iiii I I I 23:12, October 28, 2009 (UTC)

I've just looked through your user contributions and saw that you have been updating the Grand Exchange market watch. Thank you for your efforts, however, as Iiii said, it is important that you also update the dates. This lets us know when the last update was, and also helps us calculate the percentage the price went up. You do not have to manually input the new date and time, if that is what is stopping you. You need only move the current date to the "LastDate" field, then type ~~~~~ in the current Date field. When you save, the ~'s will be automatically converted into the exact time and date of your edit. Your help in correctly updating the GEMW is appreciated.
