If you have any questions or suggestions regarding the Price Guide and Exchange, or if you've come across obvious attempts at price manipulation or fake offers, please tell us about it.

IMPORTANT NOTE: In order to validate your account, you must post the generated code on the thread we have on the RuneScape official forums, not here. The quick find code for the thread is: 321-322-407-65265709.


If there is a problem with an item (bad prices, etc.), please report the item and describe the problem:
Posted Image

If there is a problem with a user (fake offers, trolling, scamming, etc.), please report the user:
Posted Image

Using the report features will let us see the problem and help you much more quickly.

Just to be clear: You did not get banned because of other people's fake offers. If you're getting a 'banned' message, it's probably because you were posting fake offers yourself, or you were trying to manipulate prices.

I believe a lot of confusing offers come from people putting in they are buying X quantity of item and want (price*quantity) in return. But when listed it adds 'each' to the latter.

For instance:

I believe this person meant 256k in total, not each.

That is indeed a problem, but how can we address it? I'm not sure we can make it any clearer than it is, short of adding smart validation:

Well, I'm not sure what screen settings you're using but when I have the offer input box it looks like this:

The ea is on a different line then the quantity and price, which some people probably don't notice. I know I didn't for awhile.


E: fixed.

Is there a way you can let people toggle between specifying the price per item and everything in total?

“People are continually pointing out to me the wretchedness of white people in order to console me for the wretchedness of blacks. But an itemized account of the American failure does not console me and it should not console anyone else. That hundreds of thousands of white people are living, in effect, no better than the "African Americans" is not a fact to be regarded with complacency. The social and moral bankruptcy suggested by this fact is of the bitterest, most terrifying kind.”

Ah. Browser bug, should be fixed. Let me know if it isn't; I'm not sure what browser you use.

I'll handle it. Thanks.

I fixed the price algorithm to range correctly... it should give better high/low/average numbers now for active items.

I've added user pages which will show all offers posted with a given RS Name, and extended the complete/delete options to guests. I also addressed performance issues that were starting to arise; everything should be much snappier now.

Great job with your amazing database! I am currently using your api for a school project of mine and I was wondering if there was an easy way to retrieve the runescape item image from your api. For example, I would like to retrieve this image here: http://forums.zybez....e-guide?id=178. Which is this direct image link Raw_Lobster.png

I left the image out because I didn't think anyone would actually need it--but I've added it in with the full path. :-) Good luck with your project!

The price guide has grimy herbs, but no unidentified or 'herbs'. :-P

You shouldn't be trading unids anyway. ;P I thought they made the change to grimy already? Maybe not.

In any event, I wouldn't feel comfortable facilitating the trade of those items--too easy to get scammed.

The change from "unidentified" to "grimy" was reverted.
In any event, it's not like the DB will be of any use if it has 20 different items listed as "unidentified herb", so the grimy misnomer is probably better left as is.

I wanted to buy some :-(.
Far less people can clean their own herbs in 07scape, so it's much easier to just buy unid's if you want to train Herblore.

The unid market was pretty big back in the day... would make sense to me to have a listing for "unidentified herb."

Just wanted to mention that when you do a search for lobster with the api: http://forums.zybez....pi?term=lobster
It shows up lobster pot instead of lobster.

It's search-based, not exact match. All items with 'lobster' in the name are included.
