RuneScape:Administrative requests

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape
Jump to: navigation, search
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.

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 Myself Talk III The Spark.png- 14:33, 1 January 2019 (UTC)

Seems like they're still used. Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 19:48, 12 February 2019 (UTC)

Alter Page[edit source]


I'm attempting to update the smithing level-up table after the mining/smithing rework. I updated all of the free-to-play unlocks but when attempting to submit changes I was redirected here. Thanks. Foodnetwork (talk) 14:23, 8 February 2019 (UTC)

What error did it show? Also do you still have a copy of your changes so I can add them for you? Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 19:45, 12 February 2019 (UTC)

Calculator:Magic/High alchemy not working correctly[edit source]

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.

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)
Fixed it. :) Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 14:18, 19 February 2019 (UTC)

Dark mode-friendly newpage instructions template[edit source]

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.)
Thanks ^^ - Rawny (talk) 04:09, 27 February 2019 (UTC)

Removed it. :) Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 11:06, 27 February 2019 (UTC)

master quest cape requeriments table[edit source]

the One Man's Junk...Is Mine achievement is not being listed on the table for the MQC Tsukiumy (talk) 07:11, 4 March 2019 (UTC)

Thanks. The achievement page just needed purging, so it should be showing up now Ciphrius Kane (talk) 07:14, 4 March 2019 (UTC)

Make external image whitelist more HTTPS-friendly[edit source]

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)
