I fail to see the point on this forum. I think it's usefull to discuss price items and that kind of stuff, but:
- We have around 50 (just guessing) post per day, of people asking how to do money. Yes, stats and player preferences are unique in every single situation, but the majority of the cases (and you can confirm this by reading the posts) lead to a already specified answer present in loads of other topics.
- The creation of an extent post (which i'm sure many of us wouldn't mind contributing to in order to avoid this useless amount of posts) that contained a very detailed "guide" on how to make money would be extremely efficient. Why? Because we could split it into sections, based on player lvls and preferences, and still make sure we covered all the community. Example:
- Money making: Low lvl/ high lvl/ skiller / pure
Combat, skilling, pvming / no skill requirement / Long term method (here we post kingdom/farming/magpies)
Description of each method rate: experience per hour (1/5, 1 would be no skilling like gathering white berries, 5 would be killing black demon), money per hour , Pros and Cons (spot competition, length of the task, amongst others), focus requirements (some people don't mind rcing but others prefer less profit if they can afk like cutting magics)
Now, adding to this structure, we would need a detailed introduction, so people know why to choose something over another. We would need alot of linking yes, because people can simply come here to look for a specific skill, or a specific method, but that can be easily provided if we work a bit. For last, if we had a spreadsheet (which would take a while, but it would save LOADS of work in the end) that calculated the estimated profit, and bingo. We just saved the need for the moderators to watch over 50 threads per day with a single sticky. You still may say that this doesn't take into account all the players, but let's face it: if the knowledge of "efficiency" is present on this topic, then we would have way less problems making the community realize that the same suggestions and being given (and taken by) in all the posts, because they are the best options for all the players.
