If you haven't read it yet, I'd like to point out [[w:c:community:User blog:Rappy 4187/Technical Update: June 28, 2017]]. I don't see any IPv6 addresses in Recent Changes as of this writing, but I'm sure it will happen eventually. Despite Wikia saying they work "just like" IPv4 addresses, blocking them kind of does not work like IPv4 addresses. Every IPv6 block is going to have to be a range block, because the idea behind IPv6 is that every household will be a range of addresses, so that everything in your house can have its own, unique IP address (your computer, your spouse's computer, your children's computers, the TV, the thermostat, the microwave, the dog's flea collar, etc.). --Saftzie (talk) 21:41, June 28, 2017 (UTC)

Yeah it's a pretty frustrating thing to have to deal with. We have actually had a few IPv6 addresses editing over the last 24 hours, such as this account and this one too (the latter of which was likely a charm vandal). I see that it is already [[w:c:community:Thread:1265049|causing problems]] jayden 21:50, June 28, 2017 (UTC)

V and References

The reference V makes to a minstrel and his ninja sidekick causing people to fall in love, then throwing a concert, is probably a reference to a semi-famous band called Ninja Sex Party. The word sex is preventing me from adding this to his page. Would appreciate it if an exemption was made in this case.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Snowskeeper (talk) on 05:48, July 3, 2017 (UTC).

I've added it to the trivia section for you - thanks for catching that reference. Please note that for the most part, images consisting purely of text are unnecessary and should be transcribed instead, either onto the article or on a transcript page. --Iiii I I I 06:15, July 3, 2017 (UTC)

Requesting bot help with interwiki links

I'd like to request bot help to add a series of interwiki links from this wiki to the Portuguese one, since i think it would be faster to do it like that. A list of the first batch of pages that require this can be found here: I'd need another batch of about the same size in the future, but before i add the rest of the pages to this list i need to improve them over at our place. Also, we only need edits here, since all pages on the PT-BR wiki already have interwiki links. Thanks!

--Raven (blue).png Crowborn (Talk) 17:40, September 15, 2017 (UTC)

That's only 57 edits to be made as it stands. If the list is likely to increase exponentially then I'd suggest botting it, but for those, I'm not sure it's really worth it unless AWB has a function for it. cqm 11:37, 16 Sep 2017 (UTC) (UTC)

Changing Twitter Widget to New Markup

Can someone change Template:RuneScape Wiki/Twitter to the following code?

<twitter screen-name="RSWiki" height="500" theme="light" />

It functions the same but uses the new markup. I'm planning to do the same thing on the OSRS wiki.

--dDbvitC.pngScuzzy Betahib8CAd.png 16:17, September 28, 2017 (UTC)

I've switched widget-id to screen-name. I have not changed the other parameters – I customized the widget to match the wiki, and removing them would make the widget default to Twitter's light theme. --Iiii I I I 17:33, September 28, 2017 (UTC)

Minimap glitches to Minimap#Glitches

It seems although "Minimap glitches" was redirected to Minimap#Glitches (source) and a lot of info and a file was not moved onto the new page. [[File:Minimap glitch druidic ritual.png]] This file was since deleted and I'm unsure if it is re-obtainable. Is it possible to undelete this or would someone have it in a database dump? --Internetboxwiki talk  Heavy box.png 06:05, December 6, 2017 (UTC)

The text of the File: page can be restored, because "deleted" pages are actually just archived. However, deleted images are gone forever. Also, images are not kept in the database, so no database dump would ever contain them. It's likely Wikia has backups of image repositories, but I wouldn't count on restoring from there for anything other than catastrophic failure. For images, gone is gone. --Saftzie (talk) 19:31, December 6, 2017 (UTC)
Actually, images are stored for a while before they are actually deleted. I just checked it and it is still available. I went ahead and restored it since you went ahead and placed it on the page. svco4bY.png3Gf5N2F.png 19:40, December 6, 2017 (UTC)

Multiple entries for store location lists

It would be nice if store location lists had multiple entries for StoreLine entries that have the same Name parameter. Stores that offer both free and non-free items are only listed once. For example, the page for Bowstrings only lists the free ones from Alison Elmshaper's Flying Arrow Fletching Shop, but she also sells 15 base stock for 100 coins each. The Lumbridge General Store has a free Hammer, and one is sold for 13 coins, but only the free ones are listed on the Hammer page. The same is true for Spirit shards sold at Pikkupstix's Summoning Shop. I don't know if the store pages were created incorrectly, if the query needs to be changed, or if this is done intentionally.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 00:29, 9 January 2018‎ (UTC).

This sounds like the 'query' will need fixing. It's not intentional as far as I know. Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 18:49, September 4, 2018 (UTC)

Tarn's Lair and most of the related pages are either outdated or incomplete.

Hi, I hope I am posting in the right place and apologise if I am not as I still think I am a noob in regards to contributing to the Wiki but I believe a lot of the content related to Tarn's Lair might possibly be suitable for an overhaul and I don't think I have the skill to do it. The entire dungeon has varying drop tables between similar combat level NPC's, items that should of been updated/altered due to EOC seem to be forgotten by Jagex and there are some potentially useful drops for low levels/ironmen that I am happy to try to document but seems daunting due to my inexperience. I've tried to update where I can or examine other pages and see how their inner workings are but I don't want to make a mess of things for others if I can help it.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Lebdestroyer (talk) on 18:03, 4 September 2018 (UTC).

I'd say RuneScape:User help would've probably been better since your request doesn't necessarily needs to be done by admins. Anyhow I think it's nice idea, but personally I'd like to do other stuff first, but there might be others who could be interested. =D Although I think currently most people are probably more interested in player-owned farm, although you never know, someone might jump right onto this. :) Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 18:47, September 4, 2018 (UTC)

Use questchecker gadget on more pages

I'd like to request some additional pages load the questchecker gadget: Quests/Strategy, List of quests, and List of quests/Full

These lists would help me find short quests and ones that I'm already or will soon be over-leveled for. The strategy guide may be out of date, but it does provide a rough order for catching up after focusing on skills.

I'd guess these should be checked by comparing the full path to window.location.pathname. That should prevent it from loading on the talk or other meta pages.

Alternatively, a new "invisible" module could be made, that is detected by the gadget and included by the quest details template. Then it would be easy for anyone to just add that new empty template to any pages that should run the gadget.

I pinged Salix on reddit, but it sounded like maybe I should have made the request here. Kalia (talk) 17:34, 1 December 2018 (UTC)

I also wanted to add it to the pages you listed as well as to the requirements part of the {{Infobox achievement}} template. Just need to find the time. ;) Perhaps someone else will be willing to pick it up before I get around to it. This was also previously discussed on Forum:Achievements Requirements Checkbox as well as other discussions which I can't seem to find atm. Will try to do this this week somewhere. Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 14:03, 3 December 2018 (UTC)

Jayden has added it to the requested pages (Quests/Strategy and all variants of list of quests as well as the individual achievement pages (not achievement list pages though as there is no API for achievements and most of them do not list skill and quest requirements except for the former area tasks diaries).

Blocked from updating smelting calculator

I'm trying to update the Blast Furnace tab of Calculator:Smithing/Ores. The update means most of the table is no longer useful. So I trimmed it.

But I got blocked trying to save the changes and told to ask here.

This is what I'm trying to put in. (This half to prove I'm not trying to do something bad and half so I don't lose the modification.)

Blast Furnace=

  • The following table uses live Grand Exchange Market Watch prices to calculate the profit from smelting ores using the Blast Furnace activity.
  • This activity removes the need of coal and luminite.
  • As a result profit per bar is higher, but there are additional requirements to using the furnace and it takes more effort to manufacture each bar.
  • Ordan only unnotes ores up through mithril, but the nearby bank chest makes that unnecessary.

Alter Template


I'm attempting to correct the Tier 4 Luck Template, but don't seem to be able to edit the base file. The error is that Tier 4 luck is listed as giving a 1% drop chance improvement at a list of bosses, of which the Magister is one. This is not correct. The Magister's drop rate of phylacteries improves from 1/18 to 1/17 with Tier 4 Luck, which is a larger improvement than 1%. See JMod post here for details:,75,52,65949497,goto,17

Calculator:Magic/High alchemy not working correctly

The Calculator:Magic/High alchemy is broken, it only substracts the cost of a nature rune from the buy cost. Causing the profit column to show the incorrect amount of profit, i dont know how to fix it sinds the page itself is semi-protected. My geuss is that some of the code that calculates the profit crashes, is incorrect or is missing. Godsman27 (talk) 08:46, 19 February 2019 (UTC)

The below is an excerpt from a subpage of the above calculator (Calculator:Magic/High alchemy/Weapons):
!Raw materials
!Raw cost
!Coins produced
|{{plink|Steel dagger}}
|1 x {{plink|Steel dagger}} ({{GEPrice|Steel dagger}})<br>1 x {{plink|Nature rune}} ({{GEPrice|Nature rune}})
|{{Coins|( {{GEP|Steel dagger}} + {{GEP|Nature rune}} ) }}
|{{Coins|{{GEValue|Steel dagger}}*0.6 round 0}}
|{{Coins|{{#expr:{{GEValue|Steel dagger}}*0.6 round 0}}-{{GEP|Nature rune}}}}
The first line is the item which is being alched, second line are the ingredients (the item + a nature rune), the third line is the cost of those two items, fourth line is the amount one receives from alching said item, fifth line is the profit, i.e. the amount which is received which is the high alch value of that item minus the GE value of a nature rune. All in all, this seems correct to me. I'm assuming you miss the fire rune not being substracted from it. This is because the player can use a fire staff or an equivalent thereof instead as stated in the section above the tables. Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 09:16, 19 February 2019 (UTC)

I see that i descibed the problem incorrectly my apoligies for that. In the Calculator:Magic/High alchemy/Weapons under the section magic weapons its stated that there is a provit of 3,814, whihc is actualy a loss cause 4200 - 6,364 = -3,814. So the problem is that the negatieve values are not being displayed. Godsman27 (talk) 10:27, 19 February 2019 (UTC)

I now see what's wrong, all items on the page only substract the nature rune from the high alch amount, but the item itself is not subtracted, I'll fix that asap. Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 13:34, 19 February 2019 (UTC)

Dark mode-friendly newpage instructions template

Template:Newpage instructions is rather hard to read in dark mode. Please could the inline-styling (or at least the background-color:#f1f1f1; part) be replaced with a class?
One possibility would be to add a class of "tile" and a max-width - i.e. the first line of the template would become: <div class="tile" style="max-width: 100%;"> (Though there may well be more appropriate classes that could be used here.)

Make external image whitelist more HTTPS-friendly

MediaWiki:External image whitelist is a bit inconsistent regarding which URLs are allowed to use HTTPS vs. HTTP. I think s? should be added to the tinypic, patterns and the two patterns, so that we're not discouraging folks from using HTTPS but also don't break existing usage of HTTP. For ease of reference, I think that the patterns for the domains mentioned should look like this:


(The sites for the other HTTP-only patterns don't seem to support HTTPS presently, which is why I haven't suggested modifying patterns beyond the four listed above.)
Thanks ^^ - Rawny (talk) 04:11, 15 March 2019 (UTC)

Also, the imageshack pattern ^https?://imageshack\.(us|com)/ doesn't support image URLs like - which could be solved with a pattern like ^https?://(img[0-9]+\.)?imageshack\.(us|com)/. Though these might be legacy URLs from before they redesigned their site and deleted everyone's images... so perhaps the imageshack ones are not worth worrying about - Rawny (talk) 06:45, 15 March 2019 (UTC)

Action throttled

Hello again,

while cleaning up the 'Missing destroy text' category I stumbled into the action limit and after more than 24 hours it was still active - which ist a bit surpring for me because normally these timers reset after a few minutes. Is it possible to shorten that time or do only authors with rollback+ get better limits? I have worked for several wikis in the past and I do not intend to destroy something, so that kind of waiting time is quite a nuisance, especially when you are doing some maintenance work. ^^

Thanks & best regards,

Hi I figured I could go about and catalogue all the new mining sites but it appears someone else also did the same thing so now there are multiple pages of the same sites under similiar yet different names? Lebdestroyer (talk) 14:17, 8 July 2019 (UTC)

Unfinished potions page layout messed up, can't fix

In an effort to update/expand the Unfinished potion page (and fix some errors I found along the way), it seems the layout was messed up badly, even though everything looked fine in the preview of the changes I implemented. Fixing this mistake however seems out of my reach as trying to undo from the revision history gives me the 'The edit could not be undone due to conflicting intermediate edits.' error and manually fixing the mistakes tells me that "The action that you are about to take will remove most of the content from this page." (which it won't).

Anyone who can help me out here? Thank you  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by DrGoliath (talk) on 13:27, July 28, 2019 (UTC).

you can revert to a specific edit by going to history, clicking cur/prev to see a diff, then clicking "edit". that'll load the editor with the contents of a previous revision, which you can save (which will overwrite all edits since) Nericat (talk) 13:30, 28 July 2019 (UTC)
I've undone the most recent edit, is it how you wanted it now? Nericat (talk) 13:43, 28 July 2019 (UTC)

Account deletion

Hi, apologies if this is in the wrong place but can I please get my wiki account deleted/removed?

Hey, you're better off using Special:Contact for requests like these. Admins themselves can not remove accounts. HaidroH rune.pngEagle feather 3.pngCandle (blood red).pngChompy_bird_hat_ogre_marksman.pngCrystal triskelion fragment 3.pngHazelmere's signet ring.png 09:23, 30 August 2019 (UTC)

Abusefilter tweaks

I got bored in a very specific way and ended up looking through some abusefilter things.

  • First off, Mediawiki:abusefilter-warning-13 should probably link to Special:CreateAccount instead of Special:Signup (which doesn't exist).
  • Second, Mediawiki:abusefilter-warning-14 should probably have a link to RS:IMP#Video somewhere.
  • Third, Mediawiki:abusefilter-warning-41 is inaccurate - it can trigger when editing any page which uses {{99s}}, {{200mxp}} or {{120s}}, and not every page which uses one of those templates is semiprotected (which the warning implies).
  • While we're on the subject of filter 41, the entire log for that filter is false positives, which could probably be avoided by doing something like & rcount(templates, added_lines) < rcount(templates, removed_lines) or & ! added_lines irlike templates as part of the check.
  • Finally, Special:AbuseFilter/2 misses some namespaces. Changing the namespace check to article_namespace == 110 /* Forum */ | article_namespace % 2 == 1 would both simplify and future-proof it.

Proposed change to Gadget-highlightTable.js

I've modified this to work for individual cells too; for a working example, see User:Mejrs/lighttable.

Lighttables can only light entire rows at once. Whenever you want to do that with individual cells you have to do something like CHaOs#Items_required, which is just...multiple regular lighttables glued together.

With this it will be just one table, which also allows other table properties to work, such as collapsing and sorting. And it looks cleaner.

Some pages for which this will be useful:

@Mejrs I've run your changes through jshint, and given it a few tweaks and cleanup and pasted the result back into User:Mejrs/lighttable.js. Would you be able to give it a test to make it it's still working as expected? If so I'll merge it into MediaWiki:Gadget-highlightTable-core.js. cqm talk 22:37, 22 September 2019 (UTC)
