Fluffy Rabbits or BofP Bank?

I may be wrong but is Fluffy Rabbits not the official name of BoPB? Silgni 17:20, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

Fluffy Rabbits is the internal name for the master bank counter, or something, but BoP is the name of the shop. Or something. Rehevkor 17:24, 15 May 2009 (UTC)
I was just thinking it may be helpful to mention that in the BoPB entry that it is a Fluffy Rabbits counter? Silgni 17:20, 15 May 2009 (UTC)
We should either do this for all player-shop master bank counters, or not do it for any of them. Zexium 17:45, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

Stabba or Stabba's

I think the original name was "Bank here or we stabba you head" when Reix first put the bank counter in. I don't want edit warring over something so trivial, but "Stabba's" suggests a possessive, and as far as I know there's never been a player called "Stabba" involved? Of course I could well have the history wrong. Zexium 05:55, 16 May 2009 (UTC)

I've always known it as "We Stabba yo wallet", many many years ago. Might have just been the catchphrase, possibly in reference to their deposit fee which was quite higher than BoP. 23:55, 20 July 2009 (UTC)
Reix bought two shops, set up a bank in one of them, called them "shop here or we stabba your head" and "bank here or we stabba your head". Not sure what the master counter is called, but my point is, it never belonged to a character / player called "Stabba" so to use the possessive "Stabba's" is gramatically wrong. However, I just checked, and it seems that the shop premises is currently called "Stabba's" ... Zexium 09:54, 21 July 2009 (UTC)
Look's like it specifically calls itself Stabba's Bank. Should it just be Stabba's or Stabba's Bank? Much like The Pineapple Bank and The Birds of Paradise Bank.
"This is a large commercial property. The floor is lined with green-black marble, the ceiling is covered with gold paint and the other surfaces are finished with carved panels of mahogany panelling. In the centre of Stabba's Bank is a master bank counter. Against the west wall is a money changer counter to the left of which is a caged greeter imp. Near the money changer counter is a pickler. Against the north wall is a Grand Wizard clock. Behind you the south door leads to God Street." 23:44, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
Yes, I agree that "Stabba's Bank" is the shop name, however I think the bank name will be either what Reix set it to originally, or what Zuroc set it to when he reinstated the master counter. Zexium 01:54, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Shop lists

Back inna day, Zuroc's wiki would have nearly up-to-date lists of player shop inventories. Was there a program he used to accomplish this, or did the shop owners update it themselves?

In either case, I think we should encourage something similar on a trial basis. -TherionAndAlts 11:50, 19 September 2009 (UTC)

Shop furniture?

Is there other pshop-only furniture that's missing from the page? I'm sure I remember someone mentioning you get it from a special thing that's not a normal shop. --Ilde 07:05, 2 October 2009 (UTC)
