I'd like to add portables locations for active portables to appropriate pages. These would be the current known active locations (and worlds) for the various Portable skilling stations. This is a simple template {{Portable locations}} which is then modified by a js gadget (which pulls the current locations via api).

The locations come from the Portables friends chat (who maintain this google sheet). Note that this is a reputable friends chat, and also where the RuneInfo discord bot gets its info.

The following is the proposed look (due to our csp a live preview is not possible):


Please Support or Oppose adding the gadget (with the courtesy of Portables FC part), however feel free to leave comments on the layout/styling etc. Clarification: When I talked to the fc owners, they were willing to let us use the info if we credited them. For comparison the RuneInfo bot says Portables FC Locations: when it lists the locations.

Support, but word it as "Locations courtesy of the Portables FC Discord server" to make it clear it's a Discord server and not necessarily the FC. Because of Forum:Discord collaboration, guides and links we work with specialised Discord servers, but because of Forum:Establishing rules for FCs friends chats should not be mentioned at all on the wiki (besides user space or talk spaces) as part of RuneScape:Players don't deserve articles as a friends chat is essentially a player.

Comment - What does the star mean next to the world name? It is not clear from the image. Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 22:28, 24 March 2020 (UTC)

Oh sorry the star is a busy location, the cursor for those is the info/help one (?) and it displays a "busy" tooltip on mouseover. Seers headband 2 chathead.png Elessar2 (talk) 10:20, 25 March 2020 (UTC)

Support - Great gadget. I would suggest to either put a legend of '* = busy' as a static legend instead of a mouse-over, or to parse the '*' to indicate busy directly in the output (e.g., instead of 68* Max Guild, 68 Max Guild (busy)).

Support - integrating well-used community features with the wiki is generally a good thing Star Talk ayy lmao ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) 13:52, 31 March 2020 (UTC)

Support - Would be extremely useful to have it handy in a webpage instead of a discord server. Would increase site traffic as well. Seth boi Archaeology.png 22:14, 2 April 2020 (UTC)

Closed - Portables will be added by Elessar. --LiquidTalk 15:16, 8 April 2020 (UTC)
