I know it's a bit early but I just thought about it and best to start talking about it early. I was thinking we could do some sort of wiki wide april fools joke. It could be on the website or we could do an event in game. I wasn't too sure what it would be, but thats what this thread is think of one. If it would take place on the wiki it would be towards the IPs and the users that don't read the Yew Grove.

To make this thread less long and confusing to get this done by the end of today, I archived the first half of the discussion here. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 01:17, March 30, 2010 (UTC)

The proposal

  1. We pretend Andrew Gower has taken over the wiki.
  2. We change the skin to an image of him tiled all over.
  3. We change the File:Wiki.png to an image of Gower.
  4. We change the site notice to something like "GOWER WAS HERE". We could cycle through a few with the <choose> tag.
  5. We make the featured article Andrew Gower with a humourous description
  6. We also make the relevant article on him as a joke.
  7. We make the poll "Is Andrew Gower awesome??" "Yes." "Yes." "Yes." "Yes." "Definitely." "Yes."
  8. We Change that sentence on the front page to "the wiki devoted to RuneScape Andrew Gower that anyone can edit"
  9. We replace the featured images with a badly photoshopped picture of a player kicking the corp beast for 99 damage and have a caption saying "This is how Andrew Gower reacted after missing an episode of Sex in the City which he had not seen before."
  10. We change the "On this day" to Andrew Gower has taken over the wiki.
  11. Bring this idea to Andrew and see if he would like to write the article about himself. (I will try to contact him).
Thanks Yanks for some of those points.

Those are my proposed points feel free to oppose/support individual ones. Feel free to suggest ones and I will add them. scoot4.pngscooties 22:46, February 22, 2010 (UTC)

Personally I don't understand why we must remove the professional quality of this wiki for a day. Then again, maybe that's why I don't get invited to parties. Ajraddatz Talk 23:10, February 22, 2010 (UTC)
Good, your not invited to this one ;) scoot4.pngscooties 23:15, February 22, 2010 (UTC)
Can we just have a logo change? The other stuff seem too excessive. --Iiii I I I 00:25, February 23, 2010 (UTC)

  • Comment - "Thanks Yanks for some of those points."?? Which ones didn't I write... Anyway, someone really needs to rewrite the featured article thing. since it really isn't funny and verging on being a try-hard Lol. Unicorn horn dust.png Evil Yanks talk 03:16, February 23, 2010 (UTC)
I added a few idea I saw then I realized that you made all those points. They are the same but I wrote them :P. You should rewrite it! scoot4.pngscooties 03:21, February 23, 2010 (UTC)
IT does seem abit too much. Maybe just the sitenotice and the logo. Swiz Talk Review Me 16:45, February 23, 2010 (UTC)
Comment - I support logo change. Site Notice, perchance. --  Nequillim  T C E   16:53, February 23, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - Some of the stuff (mainly points 5 and 6) is a bit over-the-top. It should be fun, but not too strange. Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 21:20, February 25, 2010 (UTC)

I was bold and removed it. I was not willing to remove it until someone else said that they didn't like it. Unicorn horn dust.png Evil Yanks talk 06:24, February 26, 2010 (UTC)

support- that cabbage thing is funny although i have no good ideas it could be cool to do a joke Fire cape.png Lucid Savior Talk Abyssal whip.png 02:27, February 26, 2010 (UTC)

Small suggestion - Why make a poll with so many choices? I personally think that it's funnier to have a poll that just says "Is Andrew Gower epic?" with the only choice being "Yes." than having one with so many choices. So I suggest changing it so that it has only one possible answer, being "Yes". Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 12:35, February 26, 2010 (UTC)

Good idea. Unicorn horn dust.png Evil Yanks talk 05:27, February 27, 2010 (UTC)

Now or never - Is this going ahead, since if we are there is only a bit over a week to create the new front page and contact Andrew. Unicorn horn dust.png Evil Yanks talk 03:45, March 20, 2010 (UTC)

CABBAGE! - Oh, this'll be fun :D A suggestion though: creating a userbox about the event. Personally, I love the idea of Andrew (alias Cabbage) 'taking over the Wiki', but I miss the aspects of cabbages. I think we should feature cabbages more and treat them as masters. In fact... I believe they brainwashed me. Anyway, how I imagine the suggested userbox: A picture of a cabbage and the text: This user was around when Andrew Gower took over the wiki using an army of cabbages. Well, can't wait to see this happen. >:) And, if there will be a party, could it be a bit earlier than the Springfest? I mean, it started at 20:00 which is when I normally go to sleep.

Strong support- This would be an absolutely fantastic idea. The Fire of the AngelsPester me!

Question - I didn't get a response last time. Are we going to do!!?! The school holidays have started so I have plenty of time to set it up if we are going to do it. Unicorn horn dust.png Evil Yanks talk 00:48, March 28, 2010 (UTC)

Comment/Suggestion - I created a skin for the event which we can use, though it still requires a logo. There is a way we can override the logo without updating Wiki.png (which I would love not to do) and apply the skin to the whole wiki with one strip of code. The skin is named andrewgower.css, which you can test to see if you like it. I find that gray and red screams "Andrew Gower" to me, though I don't mind if the community would like to see something else. If your able to create a logo that is the same size as the current one but depicts Andrew, give it to me and I can add it to the file. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 20:50, March 29, 2010 (UTC)

I can't remember, how do you apply skins like that?? Lol Unicorn horn dust.png Evil Yanks talk 01:55, March 30, 2010 (UTC)
Well, from memory, I think the strip would look like importScrtipt('User:Stelercus/andrewgower.css');, though I could check up on the exact syntax. For now, just push this button here to apply the skin. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 02:05, March 30, 2010 (UTC)
For the logo, this, this, or this? --Iiii I I I 14:31, March 30, 2010 (UTC)
Only problem with those is that they are not Andrew Gower based or do not look like a logo. Do you think you could round out the edges and write "Andrew Gower Wiki"? Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 17:12, March 30, 2010 (UTC)
With text. --Iiii I I I 17:36, March 30, 2010 (UTC)

Can somebody add transparency to this? Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 17:48, March 30, 2010 (UTC)
Transparency is not needed because it's already intended to go on a white background. I also fixed up the image a bit, the old one was too big. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 19:46, March 30, 2010 (UTC)

Question - 22 hours until it is April fools day. Will it be ready and has anyone tried to contact Andrew?? Unicorn horn dust.png Evil Yanks talk 01:45, March 31, 2010 (UTC)

The skin is done, now with the addition of the logo. The only issue that remains is what else we want to do with the main page. It appears the community wants us to make the UOTM, Featured Image, Article, and other such sections Andrew-Gower related. With that said, who has any ideas? We do not have nearly enough time to propose and approve different sections, but we can at least toss some ideas around. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 01:51, March 31, 2010 (UTC)
I might try to contact Andrew through dodgy means. I personally like this idea for the featured image: We replace the featured images with a badly photoshopped picture of a player kicking the corp beast for 99 damage and have a caption saying "This is how Andrew Gower reacted after missing an episode of Sex in the City on TV." Unicorn horn dust.png Evil Yanks talk 02:01, March 31, 2010 (UTC)

Idea - Replace the wiki icon (the thing next to address) with a .gif that will show it go... [[File:RW logo.png|30px]] -> Cabbage.png -> [[File:RW logo.png|30px]] -> Cabbage.png -> [[File:RW logo.png|30px]] -> Cabbage.png -> [[File:RW logo.png|30px]] -> Cabbage.png -> and so on...

We can't change the file extension of the Favicon, that being the icon your talking about, so that would be impossible. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 02:00, March 31, 2010 (UTC)

Can't you change what image is the favicon? Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 02:07, March 31, 2010 (UTC)

I know exactly how to do that, but it requires being a wikia staff member with the ability to edit the php files that make up the wiki, which we cannot do. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 02:09, March 31, 2010 (UTC)

aaaaaawwwwwwww..... well can we just change the image [[File:RW logo.png|30px]] to Cabbage.png (the pic not the filename) we can always revert the image Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 02:16, March 31, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - I haven't been getting involved in this thread, but we can change the Favicon by uploading a new image to File:Favicon.ico, I believe. I have the software available to create .ico images, but you need to tell me what image you want soon, as April Fool's is tomorrow. Cheers, Chicken7 >talk 02:36, March 31, 2010 (UTC)

I made a .ico from Cabbage detail.png (File:Cabbage detail.png), want to use that?Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 02:44, March 31, 2010 (UTC)

Question - Who will add the changed to the website?? They have to be able to edit the wiki at 00:00 (UTC). Unicorn horn dust.png Evil Yanks talk 02:47, March 31, 2010 (UTC)

Answer to Question - I will, i have nothing all day on 31. if for some reason i forget, keep checking the image at 00:00 Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 02:54, March 31, 2010 (UTC)

It needs to be a sysops since many things are protected. I can do it since I am on then, though I shouldn't since I wouldn't be able to do anything more complicated then copying and pasting. Unicorn horn dust.png Evil Yanks talk 02:57, March 31, 2010 (UTC)

All the Andrew Gower gags, while not exactly like staff impersonation, but implies that we have a relationship or affiliation with Jagex which we simply don't have. I'm not saying its a terrible idea, it just seems... I don't know. Out of place I guess, especially given the whole fansite debacle. That said, changing the logo to something strange might be fun. Like replacing all the runes with coloured cabbages, each corresponding to the rune it replaced. Does the Wiki have word replacement filters? I don't even know. But if so, replacing a common word, like Runes with "Cabbage" is pretty awesome. Another potential idea is to write up an extensive article on something that doesn't exist, like Horses or Dragon Kiteshields. Or we could just change the default theme to something really garish, like green-on-pink or something. Or we could fully protect the site and say cabbages have taken over! And that it needed to be quarantined for the editors' safety! That one's sure to go over well... kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 06:40, March 31, 2010 (UTC)

That has worried me some as well. We could add a disclaimer to the bottom of the page for the day, or something to that general effect. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 13:54, March 31, 2010 (UTC)

Contacting Jagex - I am out of ideas that will work, apart from one dodgy one that is in the grey-zone on the forum rules. We could post a thread in Jagex Lite which would be very likely to get a quick response if Jagex want to respond, though the disadvantages is that a lot of people will see it and the thread might be locked, which might be bad publicity for the wiki. If we call us the "the major RuneScape wiki fansite", that would give them one less reason to lock the thread, though it might still be locked.

FFS, this is bloody hideous --Degenret01 00:46, April 1, 2010 (UTC)

Changed the colours of the skin as they appeared unpopular. The only things I changed where the logo and added a comment to the "On this day..." section.

I saw the wiki logo and was like OMG!  Tien  01:18, April 1, 2010 (UTC)

Just a friendly shout-out to anyone in Degen's camp: I have just overridden the custom skin. Any users who think this Andrew Gower business is hideous are recommended to use Stelercus's skin generator or uncheck the box in preferences that allows RSW to override your preferences. That way, you still have the old view. FYI, the old skin was Monaco sapphire. When the skin gets changed back tomorrow, you can allow RSW to override your skin preferences again. --LiquidTalk 01:21, April 1, 2010 (UTC)

I checked all the appropriate files, and there is no reason I can see for the skin being the way it is. I am 100% sure that I removed the gray/red from the wiki, so the fact that it is still up confounds me. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 15:06, April 1, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - April fools, eh? I am feeling like one as I want to know how MediaWiki overruled my custom Monaco.css file. I do not have admin checked in my pref. So I just want to know if there is a parameter I can add so that I do not have to look at this wretched skin. As well, the only thing that stayed the same for me was my choice of the Wiki.png. Ryan PM 15:54, April 1, 2010 (UTC)


  1. The skin was placed in the global CSS file in this edit. Therefore, the "admin override" option in your preferences cannot be used to disable the skin, as it only applies to CSS placed at [[MediaWiki:Monaco.css]].
  2. The skin used !important for each style which means that it will override user preferences unless !important is used there as well.
  3. The skin colors were removed from the global CSS file but as of this writing, the server caches had not updated yet.

Hope this clears up things. --Quarenon  Talk 16:44, April 1, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks. Quarenon. I apologize to the community for the mistake with the skin. A few others and myself went through a few things we could try, though I am sure none of us where not aware it would override everyone's skin choice.

Comment - That's the end of that. It's now 12:30 AM GMT, so I removed the logo. Of course, it will take a while for the server to catch up. The default skin has been set back to Sapphire, and [[MediaWiki:Monaco.css]] has been reset. I'm sorry about the mistakes I made when carrying this out, that being the gray/red skin issue. Should a thread like this pop up for next year, I will be sure to warn everyone of that possible mistake. I would otherwise close this now, though I wont so we can discuss things a bit first.

I contacted Wikia to see if they could jumpstart things and get the skin back to normal. Everything has been restored to defaults, but the wiki itself is not applying the changes. There are no pages we can edit to change this, so we will simply have to live with for hopefully no more than a few hours.

Normal skin colors

Did anyone else get the normal colors back yet? (yes I am spelling it the American way since this isn't an article Lol)? Can we put a notice here when everyone should be back to the normal skin? And instructions for those who aren't getting it if needed? That'd be great thanks.--Degenret01 09:39, April 2, 2010 (UTC)

RuneScape Blasphemy! Anyway, I am back to normal now. I don't see why anyone wouldn't be back to normal, not unless they played around with their personal skin in an attempt to get rid of the April fools skin. Unicorn horn dust.png Evil Yanks talk 09:48, April 2, 2010 (UTC)
Well, I did try a couple of the different selections but no personal monacco or whatever, I have no clue about those things. But I went back to Sapphire, then "allow admins to override", and have fully cleared my cache. And I still see buggy Andrew.--Degenret01 10:09, April 2, 2010 (UTC)
I am going to go ask for help in the Wikia chat room or something. We should not have to be waiting all night for this. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 10:53, April 2, 2010 (UTC)
From Wikia's IRC Channel. Its back to normal for me! And it should start clearing itself soon if it hasnt done already. Try purging if you still see it! --Woodcutting-icon.png LcawteTalk (Chars). Runecrafting cape (t).png 11:03, April 2, 2010 (UTC)
I've still got it too. Frown Hopefully it clears up soon. --Aburnett(Talk) 13:24, April 2, 2010 (UTC)

Everything has cleared up (for me at least) a few seconds ago. Is anyone else still seeing this? Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 15:33, April 2, 2010 (UTC)

Sannse is on Wikia IRC. Wikia is having cache problems, if your still seeing anything wrong, report it to Special:Contact. --Lcawte 17:13, April 2, 2010 (UTC)
It went back to normal for me just a few seconds ago.  Tien  18:55, April 2, 2010 (UTC)

If anyone still has the Andrew Gower logo and the skin, just do this:

  • Internet Explorer: hold down the Ctrl key and click the Refresh or Reload button, or press Ctrl+F5.
  • Firefox: hold down the Shift key while clicking Reload; alternatively press Ctrl+F5 or Ctrl-Shift-R.
  • Opera users have to clear their caches through Tools→Preferences
  • Konqueror and Safari users can just click the Reload button.
  • Chrome: press Ctrl+F5 or Shift+F5

Hope this helps some people... Woodcutting-icon.pngChipmunk9998 Woodcutting cape (t).png 23:09, April 2, 2010 (UTC)

Do you have instructions for Safari? I am still getting Andrew's face occasionally... Ededdeddy97 23:41, April 2, 2010 (UTC)

Ah, NVM. Was just too oblivous to see Safari 23:42, April 2, 2010 (UTC)

I really think this was a huge failure. I couldn't read the wiki without highlighting text for a whole day. I feel offended. ShinyUnown T | C | E 23:45, April 2, 2010 (UTC)

The skin thing was just a silly mistake that wont happen again. Why are you offended? I see absolutely no reason to be by any stretch of the imagination. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 23:47, April 2, 2010 (UTC)

Closed Its over, we are back to normal.--Degenret01 12:04, April 3, 2010 (UTC)
