Hi all. I'd like to get some input on formatting preference / standardization of items a vendor has for sale. Looking at a random sampling of vendor pages already, there appears to be no set standard/format on how items for sale by a vendor are listed. I have seen bullet lists, tables, boxes, text, links, etc... Any insight on this is appreciated. --DLanyon (talk) 14:31, November 24, 2009 (UTC)

I would like to have {{itembox}} to be used for vendors with small lists. Besides that I want to use transcludable pages more often in case of Trade Good Vendors, Armor Vendors, General Good Vendors, Profession Supplies Vendors. Those transcludable pages have a fixed part and a part that varies by means of arguments. Hans Kamp (talk) 15:25, November 24, 2009 (UTC)
I guess I should state my preference too. I prefer a unified table design, that way regardless of how many items a vendor has, ALL vendor pages will have the same format/layout/ appearance. I can see the need for some slight variation in the actual columns as with most things there are variations of vendors. But, I would like to see an agreed upon 'base' to build off of. I agree with Hans, transcludable for common vendors would be helpful, as there are numerous pages for vendors out there who all sell the same items. And if they carry something additional that can be added in a separate table. DLanyon (talk) 16:04, November 24, 2009 (UTC)
