Indicating seasonal/limited-availability?[edit]

This list mixes regular offerings, seasonal (Halloween/Wintersday) offerings, and then things like the Mini Black Bear Cub which just says "for a limited time this spring."

Would anyone be opposed to my adding an "availability" column to the table, so we can specify if the item is sold year-round, repeatedly at a given time of year, or was a one-shot/historical thing? This could be useful for folks deciding whether to save or spend their gems. - Temerity (talk) 00:05, 30 October 2016 (UTC)

See "Special sales" section?--Relyk ~ talk < 00:39, 30 October 2016 (UTC)
^ Aside from this, the availability of items is rarely ever fixed; Halloween items might pop up during any sale throughout the year, i.e. Lunatic Guard Outfit. Not to mention that the table already indicates availability; anything not on the list isn't available, and historical items can be found over on the respective page. More information can be retrieved by, as Relyk already pointed out, visiting the sales pages. Besides, the information used for determining the availability of these items would be purely based on speculation as everything at any given time is subject to change. I'm not opposed to having an availability page, similar to what User:Dashface is maintaining over on Reddit, but its place would not be here.

"anything not on the list isn't available" - Wait so is the list info pulled from the API or something like that? I thought it was manual. Okay, never mind, then. :) - Temerity (talk) 01:45, 2 November 2016 (UTC)
It is manual, Incarnazeus does it herself. Moving stuff about every couple of weeks is a bit tedious, but what can you do. Tyndel (talk) 02:19, 2 November 2016 (UTC)

Utility / Gathering Tools table wonky[edit]

I looked at some of the older versions of the Utility table, and there are dozens of entries missing from almost every version I looked at. They all have 10-20 entries, but it's a mostly different set of them a year ago, and also before that.

Does anybody know where the list comes from?

NOTE: I only look at the Gathering Tools sub-section of the Utility tables. Daddicus (talk) 21:56, 11 October 2019 (UTC)

Please be specific. Which page are you looking at, are you using the "history" button? Walk us through what you're doing so we can replicate the issue. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 07:48, 12 October 2019 (UTC)
This page lists items that are currently available in the gem store. It is all done manually. When the gem store updates, someone has to also manually update this table. It's tedious, so it's natural that it may not be up to date. --BuffsEverywhere (talk) 08:35, 12 October 2019 (UTC)
It was the "currently available" that I missed. I assumed it was supposed to be a complete list. Sorry for the wild goose chase. Daddicus (talk) 03:44, 14 October 2019 (UTC)

List of "Currently available" is wrong[edit]

Season 1 Memory Box—Flame and Festivals and Season 1 Memory Box—Scarlet vs. Lion's Arch are nowhere to be found in the in-game gem store. What gives? 17:30, 9 May 2020 (UTC)

It was removed and nobody noticed, so the page wasn't updated. That's all. It's been fixed. - Doodleplex 18:10, 9 May 2020 (UTC)
