Info - The test will happen on World 41. Please meet with a ring of seeking at Lumbridge Courtyard. We will only need to test a few hiders, so those rings will be provided.

Which ring of seeking? ⁓ Hello71 17:22, May 15, 2010 (UTC)

New wikifest idea

I read the current wikifest idea and no offense but it seems really lame and boring. I propose a radically different idea for it

Event Time Details
Meet N' Greet/Costume Contest 0:00-0:20 Everyone meets at varrock sewers We greet everyone and get to know each other. Costumes are judged in three categories: The most original, most holiday themed and the most combat based
Lumbridge Monster liberation 0:20-0:50 We all go to lumbridge and across the river to where all those enemies are. Then we fight and kill spiders, goblins and anyother attackable creatures. Time to free lumbridge from those enemies
Race in wildy! 0:50-1:20 We all meet at edgeville. Then we all race to the sapphire spawn in level 50 wildy. The first one there wins a special prize from me
Cabbage patch Chaos 1:20-1:35 We can't go without this classic, we all collect as many cabbages as we can
Lumbridge Cabbage pwn! 1:35-1:45 The courtyard of lumbridge will be showered with cabbages!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Falador Hide and seek 1:45-2:20 We all play hide and seek in the city of falador
scary Story time at draynor manor 2:20-2:40 Everyone goes to draynor manor and tell the scariest stories we can think of whether it be a time when you lost a godsword or you were chased by a rev!!!!!!!!! OOHH it just scares me to type this.
Fist of Guthix fun weapons 2:40-? To conclude our wikifest, we will all go to fist of guthix and equip only fun weapons and fight there.

I want to try this because i Think it's more original and would be more different.

Tell me what you think.--Turok Obama 19:23, May 2, 2010 (UTC)

No offense, but these are the worst ideas I ever heard of. Goblin liberation won't work as there isn't enough goblins. Loads of people will die at wildy race. There is no point of cabbage-bombing lumbridge as it's not crowded. Story time and fog fun weps are just boring. bad_fetustalk 19:33, May 2, 2010 (UTC)
Oppose - Sorry, it just sucks, no offence -- 19:57, May 2, 2010 (UTC)

EXTREME OPPOSE- not to be mean, or anything, but that's the worst one I've ever heard. Username1907 rulez! 20:04, May 2, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - As per above.  Golden warpriest of Zamorak helm.png Wingcap Firemaking master cape.png 20:15, May 2, 2010 (UTC) Booooooooooooooooooo - Miserable failure of a level 1 wikifest. ⁓ Hello71 21:53, May 2, 2010 (UTC)

Strong Oppose - Scary stories? No. Fist of Guthix fun weapons? No. Sorry, but that just does not look like a good wikifest. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 22:18, May 2, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - Cabbage Patch Chaos a classic...yay! I still consider that my brain child for the fest, but I don't thing the rest suits our needs very well. Thanks for the offer though ;) 00:30, May 3, 2010 (UTC)

Proposal ended - We should focus on what is above. If we leave this section open I think it might stop other contributions to what we have above. I know I'm not neutral on this close, but I feel it can be supported by what is above.

Ring testing results

I'd like to get a group together to test the event tools, specifically the hide n' seek one's and to try and see how we can use them for our needs. I'm going to take the initiative and organize this test for Saturday, May 15th, at 17:00 UTC. Please sign below if you can attend. We can use a neutral CC for discussion, perhaps someone who attends to test it. Those interested in being a Fest Mod or in the Hide n' Seek should make an effort to attend.

Comments of Results

  1. Rings reacted to each other making it easier when near
  1. Supplying the rings didn't work well
  2. Anyone can have any kind of ring, meaning if a player wore a ring of hiding, it could trick players from the actual hider.
  3. The range of the rings into effect doesn't work very well. This makes it more difficult, but your practically there before you get a result from the ring.

I propose that we do not use the rings.

Bonziiznob Talk

17:33, May 15, 2010 (UTC)

Support - There was confusion over how the rings worked, and they don't actually help much at all in the searching. However, if we want to have hide and seek without rings, we need a definite way of defining who is hiding (maybe certain clothing?). Best Shield EVERAnnaLove scarves! 18:21, May 15, 2010 (UTC)

How about a blue wizzy hat? Easy to see and easy to get. 06:21, May 16, 2010 (UTC)
I like the blue wizzy hat, but we'll have to make sure no-one else has one....perhaps something could be given out be stel? (EDIT: Forgot to sign!)  Golden warpriest of Zamorak helm.png Wingcap Firemaking master cape.png 15:50, May 16, 2010 (UTC)
Ok then we need something not easy to get but not impossible... how about gnomeballs?... not f2p.. Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 09:46, May 16, 2010 (UTC)
Gnomeballs are extremely easy to get o_o. We could have someone lend a discontinued item to the hider, as they are rare. bad_fetustalk 10:58, May 16, 2010 (UTC)
I would be happy to lend my mask for a few minutes to further the cause. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 12:06, May 16, 2010 (UTC)
thats actually a very good idea. And it would be nice to have a rare in my inventory for once. Lol Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 22:57, May 16, 2010 (UTC)

Support - Teh rings were quite useless. bad_fetustalk 18:58, May 15, 2010 (UTC)

Support - I didn't even notice a change in what the ring told me until I was literally right next to the target. BerserkHackr 19:17, May 15, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - The rings, while a nice idea, pose too many disadvantages. I don't see any reason to debate this. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 12:04, May 16, 2010 (UTC)

The third one seems like the best. bad_fetustalk 18:57, May 15, 2010 (UTC)

Comment- I think its better with black letters.Dragon helm.pngSupergrunt8Dragon 2h sword old.png 19:02, May 15, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - Of course, the third one has the real Spirit of Summer (excuse the pun). But the two colours will make it difficult to read, how about a softer tone of orange with bold yellow text? or Sunflower colours?   Swizz Talk   Events!   19:46, May 15, 2010 (UTC)

I like the first one Heart. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 20:14, May 15, 2010 (UTC)
I'm so smart ^_^. Lets see what everyone else thinks.   Swizz Talk   Events!   20:19, May 15, 2010 (UTC)
Sunflower colours epic fail. The other one is O.K. I still like stelercus's one moar though. bad_fetustalk 23:58, May 15, 2010
I'm likin the first one. Golden warpriest of Zamorak helm.png Wingcap Firemaking master cape.png 09:48, May 16, 2010 (UTC)


Comment - I like the first one.

Comment - i like the second one. nice and bright. Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 04:37, May 16, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - That first dark grey blue thing is still the coolest. --Degenret01 04:40, May 16, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - The problem with the first blue one is that some people might not be able to see the black text on it.   Swizz Talk   Events!   08:55, May 16, 2010 (UTC)

Comment- I think its better with a orange backgroundDragon helm.pngSupergrunt8Dragon 2h sword old.png 22:53, May 16, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - I think this is very trivial. Chicken7 >talk 06:43, May 17, 2010 (UTC)

Well, what else can we do to... we tested and talked about events... what else is there? Lol Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 07:09, May 17, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - I like the second one, and Chicken is DEAD WRONG. This is the advertising! We could have the best product in the entire world, but if we don't advertise it properly, no one will show up. --LiquidTalk 20:41, May 17, 2010 (UTC)

  1. Advertising is more used for when selling something for money. Promotion is a better word
  2. It is a colour -.- It will not determine if we attract 4 people or 40 and it certainly will not repel players from attending...
  3. If we didn't even have a sitenotice message AT ALL, we would still have more players than we can handle.
  4. I think all the yellows draw too much attention, and distract from the day to day running of the wiki.
I fail to see how I am dead wrong. I don't mind choosing colours, but the focus should be on the actual fest and finalising the timetable. Confused Chicken7 >talk 05:53, May 18, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - The blue colours appear to be popular, but I can't come up with an image to go with it. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 23:18, May 17, 2010 (UTC)

How about File:Drunk Dragon.png? Drunk Dragon.png --LiquidTalk 00:49, May 18, 2010 (UTC)
Something about that just does not work in my mind. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 09:31, May 18, 2010 (UTC)

Hmm... Something like this maybe?Drunk Dragon.png   Swizz Talk   Events!   19:01, May 18, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - RuneHQ has agreed to be our clan opponent in clan wars, meaning that we can keep the above schedule as nobody needs to leave the cc at any point (unless they choose to at the end). I also think we should merge The Golden Quill event with the fest (that being an award ceremony for RSWP articles over the past year). Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 21:01, May 19, 2010 (UTC)

Are you sure about RuneHQ? There's gonna be some huge spamming and hating and trolling.   Swizz Talk   Events!   06:52, May 20, 2010 (UTC)
RuneHQ is fine, as long as we make it very clear that RS:UTP still applies, and there is to be no spamming/hating/trolling. If this works well, then we can have more of these events in the future. --LiquidTalk 12:17, May 21, 2010 (UTC)
The image should be something people would appeal to, so the Drunk Dragon picure might be good. Username1907 rulez! 22:05, May 21, 2010 (UTC)

Slight Revision

Event Time Details
Meet N' Greet/Costume Contest 0:00-0:30 Everyone will arrive at Falador castle, so that users can do the meet n' greet aspect somewhere, then the costume contest can be held somewhere else in the building. We could also move it to Mudskipper point again as it is more summery there, though change is always nice.
Clan Wars 0:30-1:00 First of all, I have a reason for doing clan wars first, just read on. Everyone will branch off into the two clan chats (yet to be chosen) and move to clan wars. The rules for the first war must allow food/potions, all combat types in their entirety, and multiway combat, though the multiway combat rule may be changed (the others must remain).
Fist of Guthix 1:00-1:30 Everyone will merge back into the main clan chat again and move to Fist of Guthix. Not much to say on that issue, just play fog.
Cabbage patch Chaos 1:30-1:45 A favorite event of ours, we will storm the Falador cabbage patch and attain all the cabbage we can...
Grand Exchange cabbage pwn! 1:45-2:00 The Grand Exchange will be attacked by wikians and showered with cabbage.
Duel Arena 2:00-2:30 Everyone will walk back to Al Kharid to enjoy a few rounds of dueling.
Hide and Seek 2:30-3:00 First of all, I will be sure that the fest mods do not entertain any request to hide. Having a million people asking if they can hide will ruin the event, so any request to do so at the event (but not before hand) will be shot down. The people asked to hide, who only one of which will be hiding at any given time, will hide anywhere in the game (so long as the area is safe and accessible for all levels). You are admonished not to use teleports as this gives an unfair advantage if you are seeking. We will cycle through a few hiders, starting with one after the last has been found. If you do not have a ring of kinship, take the ship to Daemonheim from Al Kharid and get one, as they will be used directly after the event.
Dungeoneering 3:00-? To conclude our wikifest, we will all teleport to Daemonheim at once. A count down will be given in the cc in an effort to all arrive there at the same time, if not only for the visual effect. When we get there, you are asked to enter the white free-for-all portal to be paired up with random wikians. The event essentially ends here, so you are free to move throughout the game with fellow wikians as you see fit.

The only difference is the times, this way its a little easier to keep track of when things are happening and a little more time for the event. This makes the whole event only 20 mins more. Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 03:25, May 15, 2010 (UTC)

It looks smoother with your half-of-an-hours.=p -- Golden warpriest of Zamorak helm.png Wingcap Firemaking master cape.png 10:00, May 16, 2010 (UTC)

Strong Oppose - While the idea of nice half-hour blocks is nice, doing that too much will unbalance things. We do not need to spend half an hour on hide and seek, that will drive a lot of people crazy after the event is half over. Some events, like duel arena and fist of guthix, should be longer than half an hour because they are more popular and can be stretched over longer periods of time. I like the concept of this schedule, but it just wont work. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 23:23, May 17, 2010 (UTC)

Sychron 7 05:58, May 22, 2010 (UTC) My questoin is: how do I join the costume compatoin. I have searched the page. It doesnt say anything

Hide n' Seek Testing: Results

This section is closed and archived to make it easier to keep track of the current discussion. The result of ring testing was to NOT use the rings.--Degenret01 03:00, May 17, 2010 (UTC)


I would like to do a rehearsal of the events to ensure that we are almost ready for the real thing. Not to do everything for the full time but like 5 mins, more or less if needed, at each event and go through how we will do the transition to the next event. Full Slayer Helmet!
