Merging 6 commodity pages into one[edit source]

User:Unscjon117 do you think it might be better to get all 6 commodities into a single Assignment: Relieve Emergency Shortage, like it is done for Assignment: Haggle for Gamma Quadrant Commodity? We could just have bullet points listing 6 commodities on the page, since rewards are absolutely identical between all 6 assignments, and so are requirements, except just the commodity changes.

Likewise for Assignment: Relieve Shortage and Assignment: Relieve Minor Shortfall.

Also, Experience Point icon.png, Expertise icon.png and Commendation XP values you include on the page seem to be specific to your character, so these don't mean much e.g. to me, as I would get something completely different. Maybe it would be better to give something a bit more official and more meaningful to other players - e.g. what is listed on Assignment starting page, as every character would have a different bonus for these values depending on their fleet Experience Point icon.png bonus and their commendation rank.

Aye, that would make them consistent with other similar "assignment groups". Have been reviewing them for same, gathering current reward info to see whether that was actually the case - and appears to be so. Will cleanup/revise each group in "one swell foop"[sic]. Should also likely be noted that a) each rarity doesn't actually cover all 6 GQC (have been checking for these daily for over a week and not found any other than those listed), and b) the common one for Tulaberries appears to be the *ONLY* such assignment. Also deleted the "vote" section re: deleting the page, as a) it appeared to be (badly) outdated, b) original delete vote comment didn't appear to make much sense - just the two page names alone appeared to indicate they would normally be expected to be different, and c) it's in Trader/Talk page history anyway.

The Emergency/Shortage/Shortfall assignment pages have been combined, with (temporary) redirects created. Pages are named "...of Gamma Quadrant Commodity", in order to make it clear to the reader what's being replaced/relieved. Separate but somewhat related, I renamed the "Haggle" page to "Haggle for Gamma Quadrant Commodity" for the same reason.Unscjon117 (talk) 16:55, 25 October 2019 (UTC)
