If you are reporting vandalism in progress, use this page.

What this page is for[edit source]

    • Protecting and unprotecting pages.
      Highly visible pages or content that may have links from outside websites are encouraged to have some level of protection. This should be done according to the RuneScape:Protection policy.
    • Moving protected pages and files.
      Due to misuse of the page move tool, some pages are protected from being renamed except by an administrator. If you can make a case for a page move, requests for the page move can happen here.
    • Minor edits to protected pages.
      This commonly applies to protected templates that can have a substantial impact on thousands of pages if they are changed, so caution is urged when they are modified.
    • 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.
    • Hiding revisions and edit summaries.
      In the case of copyright violations, privacy violations, offensive material, etc., revisions may be hidden using Special:RevisionDelete.
    • General questions for the administrators.
      You will get a faster reply by joining our Discord server and asking there; however, you can still post here and the administrators will answer to the best of their abilities.

What this page is not for[edit source]

    • Requests for deletion.
      If you believe an article does not meet the wiki's standards, post on Requests for deletion. Spam, accidental page creations, and other similar issues should be tagged with {{D|Reason}}.
    • Issues that do not require administrator tools to resolve.
      Visit the user help page instead. If you're not sure if your problem requires an administrator, post it here.
    • Users who may be vandalising pages.
      Instead, please report the user on the Counter-Vandalism Unit.
    • Requests to become an administrator.
      If you are interested in learning what administrators do and how to become one, please visit Administrators for information on the role and Requests for adminship for the process of becoming an administrator.
    • Account deletion requests.
      This is not possible.
    • Account renaming requests.
      See this page for more info.

Thanks! Micha (talk) 03:45, 28 October 2021 (UTC)

All merged - thanks for spotting the duplicated files :) Magic logs detail.pngIsobelTalk page 10:45, 28 October 2021 (UTC)

Another - Please merge [[:File:Massive pouch (full).png]] into File:Massive pouch.png. I see no evidence that those are two separate things - the pouch doesn't change when full. Micha (talk) 21:16, 31 October 2021 (UTC)

Looks like an accidental duplicate of the regular pouch file - I deleted rather than merged as there was an existing version of around the same time period. Thanks again! Magic logs detail.pngIsobelTalk page 11:42, 1 November 2021 (UTC)
I can’t look now because, well, it’s deleted, but I thought there were significantly more versions there than on the current file page. Micha (talk) 07:36, 2 November 2021 (UTC)

Make materials in Calculator:Perks clickable links[edit source]

Currently, there is no easy way to go from the perk calculator to a component page (e.g., if you want to see what to disassemble to get it). The result section writes the names of the components used, but they aren't links.

Replacing MediaWiki:Gadget-perkcalc-core.js#L-844 which currently has:

                    .append($("<div>").text("Results for level "+info.levelwithpotion+" Invention "+potionNote+"in a"+(info.gizmo=='armour'?'n ':' ')+info.gizmo+" gizmo with materials: "+mats.join(', ')))

With this:

                    .append($("<div>").text("Results for level "+info.levelwithpotion+" Invention "+potionNote+"in a"+(info.gizmo=='armour'?'n ':' ')+info.gizmo+" gizmo with materials: " {
                        return '<a href="/w/'+mat.replace(/ /g, '_')+'" title="'+mat+'">'+mat+'</a>';
                    }).join(', ')))

Would make them into links

Please restore history of File:PHS ardy bear.png[edit source]

Title says it all. Thanks. --Saftzie (talk) 00:06, 2 March 2022 (UTC)

Sorry - the file kinda broke after I merged them and I get an error when trying to undelete the previous versions. Another admin has also tried and gets the same error. I'll ping the server techs again and see if there's anything that they can suggest. Magic logs detail.pngIsobelTalk page 10:25, 2 March 2022 (UTC)
I've uploaded the previous version to work around. Magic logs detail.pngIsobelTalk page 10:59, 2 March 2022 (UTC)

API bug[edit source]

Requesting my watchlist from the API, for example via the sandbox:


returns an error:

internal_api_error_TypeError: Caught exception of type TypeError

Other lists appear to be fine, although I didn't check them all. This behavior is new within the last week. For reference, the same query on en.wikipedia completes fine. As I write this, Special:Version on this wiki reports

MediaWiki 1.36.3 (d4c54b3)
PHP 7.4.28 (fpm-fcgi)

while on en.wikipedia it reports

MediaWiki 1.38.0-wmf.24 (f9858b2)
23:05, 28 February 2022
PHP 7.2.34-18+0~20210223.60+debian10~1.gbpb21322+wmf5 (fpm-fcgi)

so I don't think it's an intentional API change. Is there another update due? Thanks. --Saftzie (talk) 04:00, 9 March 2022 (UTC)

Should be fixed now. Thanks for the report. - TehKittyCatTalk Wikian-Book 09:52, 9 March 2022 (UTC)

Please delete redundancies from Template:Wilderness slayer drops[edit source]

I created a DataTable based table to log drops into and can't delete the old one because it tells me I would be deleting too many lines at a time.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 03:14, 7 September 2022 (UTC).

Nice job with creating a data submission module for the chest! I've updated it due to some minor inconsistancies with the other submission modules and deleted the manual table from that template. Thanks! Lava hawk.png BlackHawk (Talk)    08:11, 7 September 2022 (UTC)
