I don't want to be a huge Debbie Downer, but is this template really necessary? Solo idlechasing is still a good way to make xp, unless you want to make several million xp a day. The changes only affected *group* idlechasing. Vashti (talk) 18:42, 25 April 2017 (EDT)

Idlechasing was used mostly to mean group shared idlechasing, and the changes prevent that. The template might be better phrased, but it's meant to warn that trying to share command xp will not work anymore, and you can use nearly all commands with the same effectiveness.
I'll try to rephrase is better, but I feel like it's necessary to point out that the information in the idlechasing pages is out of date. The alternative is to edit all of them to correct the information. If someone wants to do that the template could be removed, although some historical note at the beginning of the main article would still be nice to document the change.

Also, the maximum xp return is now 20 times gp cost, not 30 times as before, which does make personal idlechasing much less attractive, though easier than before since you can use more commands.

Oh yeah, the pages are definitely out of date. I've done some edits to the assassin one, but it's ... still pretty out of date, I'm sure. But personally I find solo idlechasing a lot more consistently productive than hunting (which I can't do much of because I can't group or use my hands that much), so I get a bit rankled when people are flat-out like "you can't do this any more!" when especially for newbies it's actually a great way to start and to keep a consistent manageable rate of xp.
Thanks for editing the template, it works much better now IMO. :D Vashti (talk) 10:50, 26 April 2017 (EDT)
