Does the Mile High Club belong on this page? If so, what should its heading be?--Hehe5 (talk) 22:19, 4 November 2011 (GMT)

I don't think so because I recall reading it was a complex. But for now we should, it should be named its builder. (STD. lol) -TheJustinAllenK (talk) 22:39, 4 November 2011 (GMT)

Notable Businesses that are possibly coming back from the GTA III - GTA IV Era

These are companies that are presumably returning from the old eras. I tried to get as many as I could but I only could get six. -TheJustinAllenK (talk)

Change to table style?

This page as well as those similar seem to have a lot of unused space, and I thought the best way to redo these was to put the information into a table. I took the contents of this page and created a page that seems to reduce the empty space and organize the info into a convenient table. Here's the example using this page's information:

Thoughts? Ian Phoenixtalk 03:15, 12 May 2013 (BST)

I think the sortable table is a great idea. We should use it for all "Businesses in x" pages.--Hehe5 (talk|edits) 06:16, 12 May 2013 (BST)

Tables are really great, I'm a big fan, but my concern is that this list would get too big to manage. When we have 1000 businesses here, the page will be hard to edit (especially for newer users) compared to the current format. We may end up with duplications (because the page code isn't sorted, just the output). Also, even if you can sort it by type of business, it will still mean a LOT of scrolling to find (say) Restaurants.

I think a better idea would be to have several tables - on different pages. So a list of restaurants, a list of shops etc. This page would link to all those sub-pages. We could even have an 'All Businesses' list that imports the others automatically into a massive sortable table, if that would be useful. What do you think? gboyers talk 23:23, 12 May 2013 (BST)

If it can be executed, I think it's a great idea. The only thing is creating a code that actually imports the list to this page. Ian Phoenixtalk 00:41, 13 May 2013 (BST)
That's easy, actually. Just make the table on each page, then put <includeonly></includeonly> around the actual table rows (excluding the {| parts). Then we can just include each list into the main list as if it were a template. Each list would then automatically provide its rows into one big overall sortable table. gboyers talk 13:28, 13 May 2013 (BST)
I've been working on the separate pages, and so far the main page just has links to each category, but I'm not familiar enough with wiki language/tools to execute combining the lists into the main page. Ian Phoenixtalk 06:22, 18 August 2013 (BST)
