RuneScape:Administrative requests

If you are reporting vandalism in progress, use this page.
What this page is for
  • Protecting/unprotecting pages.
    Highly visible pages or content that may have links from outside websites are encouraged to have some level of protection. This can also include a request for administrators to try and calm down an edit war. This should be done according to the RuneScape:Protection policy.
  • Moving/renaming protected pages and files.
    Due to vandals' mis-use of the page move tool, some pages are protected from being renamed except by an administrator. If you can make a compelling case for a page move, or consensus has been reached on the respective discussion page related to the page you think needs to be renamed, formal requests for the page move can happen here. New contributors to this wiki or "anonymous" users wishing to rename a page that don't have the page move option available to them yet are also welcome to make such requests on this page.
  • Minor edits to protected pages.
    This is mostly on protected templates that can have a substantial impact on the whole wiki if they are changed, so caution is urged when they are modified.
  • Announcements that are intended to be across the whole wiki.
    This appears on MediaWiki:Sitenotice, and should be something that would be of interest to the whole community.
  • Importing pages from another wiki.
    While seldom used for content on this wiki, this is an option that is available for bringing in content from another wiki and preserving its edit history, which requires administrator rights. MediaWiki importing tools can sometimes be buggy, so be gentle on volunteer administrators doing this task.
  • Hiding revisions and/or edit summaries.
    In the case of blatant copyright violations, significantly offensive material, identity establishing information, or any other content that poses a major risk to the wiki or its editors, the revision(s) may be hidden using Special:RevisionDelete.
  • General questions to the administrators of this wiki.
    You might get a faster reply by posting on the User help page; however, the administrators here will try to help you to the best of their abilities.
What this page is not for
  • Problems that do not require administrator tools to complete.
    Instead, please visit the user help page.
  • Problem users who may be vandalising content pages.
    Instead, please note the user that may be causing problems on the RuneScape:Counter-Vandalism Unit page.
  • Requests to become an administrator.
    If you are interested in learning what an administrator does or how you can become one, please visit RuneScape:Administrators for information about administrators and RuneScape:Requests for adminship for the process to become an administrator.
  • General discussions about administrator behaviour.
    Most policy discussions, including policies that govern administrators, ought to be started on the Yew Grove and kept to that forum for input from the larger RS wiki community.
  • Minor requests for deletion.
    If you've accidentally duplicated content or wish to just clean up a mess you've made on the wiki, you should simply tag the page with {{D|Reason(s) for nomination}}.

Please only make requests on this page that specifically require sysop tools to fulfill.

Use questchecker gadget on more pages[edit source]

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.

Delete some unused image template images[edit source]

Since a bunch of image templates were merged into Template:Retake image and Template:Cleanup image, the files File:Anim.gif, File:Crop.svg and File:Needs Anti-aliasing.png are all but unused and should probably be deleted. I'd tag them with {{D}} but two of them are protected. -Hourglass (2011 Hallowe'en event) detail.png I Am Me Talk III The Spark.png- 14:33, 1 January 2019 (UTC)

Blocked from updating smelting calculator[edit source]

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.
Metal Ore Raw cost Sale value Profit per Bar
Steel bar.png Steel bar Iron ore.png Iron ore 221 706 485
Mithril bar.png Mithril bar Mithril ore.png Mithril ore 153 742 589
Adamant bar.png Adamant bar Adamantite ore.png Adamantite ore 513 1,959 1,446
Rune bar.png Rune bar Runite ore.png Runite ore 4,968 6,867 1,899

I've added your above code to the calculator. Not sure why you weren't allowed to make the edit. What did the error say exactly? Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 14:12, 11 January 2019 (UTC)
It said

Stop hand nuvola red.svg The action that you are about to take will remove most of the content from this page. Page blanks are considered vandalism and will not be tolerated. If you vandalise this article in any way, your edits will be reverted, and you may be blocked from editing. If you believe your edit was constructive and have received this message in error, please contact an administrator.

Seems like you tripped a limit of deleting too much content throwing that error, but it's been implemented now. :) Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 16:04, 11 January 2019 (UTC)
