Calculator:Magic/High alchemy

As I commented at Calculator talk:Magic/High alchemy, this calculator is not necessary, as there's already a much more informative, dynamic, and fully functional calculator for alchemy at Grand Exchange Market Watch/Alchemy. That calculator covers all of the possible items that are profitable with alchemy already in one big sortable table (even covering low alchemy as well, which this calculator does not). However, the market watch alchemy calculator is buried and hard to find (I was reading about GEMW when I stumbled upon it), while this calculator is prominently displayed with the other calculators on the Calculators page. I think that the market watch calculator should be made more prominent in this calculator's place; if more people knew it existed, I believe there may not have been a perceived need to make this calculator in the first place.

Support - Probably redirect to the other one. It's hard to find any value in something that only shows metal equipment and a couple other things. ʞooɔ 00:51, 19 September 2020 (UTC)

Support - I also agree that the GEMW/Alchemy calculator should feature more prominently. --The scribe (T | C) 01:16, 19 September 2020 (UTC)

Support keeping both. The calculator you reference has out of date prices. I refreshed it, and the prices are 26 hrs old. What's the harm in keeping both? I use this one daily, and it should take minimal support.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 2020-09-22 02:50 (UTC).

Support redirect - For clarity, the calculator page existed for nearly and a year and a half before the GEMW page (created July 2017 vs January 2019). I do support removing the current calculator and having it redirect to the GEMW page, as it's more up to date. Badassiel 05:18, 22 September 2020 (UTC)

Redirect sounds like the best option here. The old calculator should be deprecated, but no need to delete the page when there could be off-wiki links to it. Adragon111 (talk) 03:34, 25 September 2020 (UTC)
