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)
Wait, where? None of them show up more than a handful of times in Special:WhatLinksHere (one forum thread each, an admin request or two, a DPL list of images with no license template, and one user talkpage archive). I know they used to be used in {{AA}}, {{Crop}} and {{Gif}} but those templates were deleted ten months ago. -Hourglass (2011 Hallowe'en event) detail.png I Am Myself Talk III The Spark.png- 22:23, 25 April 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. 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)
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)

Making citations easier to use[edit source]

Here's some stuff that would make citing things easier in both VisualEditor and source editor:

Account Deletion[edit source]

Dear Admins,

I don't know if this is the right section, but considering this is an administrative request and I cannot find any support or contact page I thought to just put it here. My question is if it is possible to delete my Wiki account?

I no longer use it and I do not want to leave it on the internet.

Hope you can help me or direct me in the right direction.

Thanks, MitchCarter  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by MitchCarter (talk) on 11:58, 24 March 2019 (UTC).

Travelling merchant rotation stuck[edit source]

It seems the Travelling Merchant's Shop rotation is stuck on 1 April 2019. I've tried purging the page several times, but it's not updating to today's information... Has anything gone awry with LUA, or it is part of the April Fools' changes? 03:36, 2 April 2019 (UTC)

Are you still having this problem? It looks updated for me. ʞooɔ 03:39, 2 April 2019 (UTC)
Hmm, seems fine now. Perhaps it was an issue on my end. Sorry for the bother. 03:55, 2 April 2019 (UTC)

Character article: Isis[edit source]

Dear Wiki-Team,

I just attempted to edit Isis' page, but for some weird reason it is still protected at administrator level. The protection log shows that this happened due to its deletion in 2016, but I think it should be safe now. ;)

Thanks & best regards,
Aaron 16:18, 4 April 2019 (UTC)

Hey, this was protected due to lots of vandalism in the past. I've reverted the protection for now, but if the vandalism starts again, it'll be changed once again. Thanks for editing though! Talk-to Kelsey 16:23, 4 April 2019 (UTC)
Wow, that was fast, thank you very much! :D Yeah, let's hope that won't be necessary. ^^ It's always annoying when people destroy wiki pages. ~ Aaron 16:32, 4 April 2019 (UTC)

Action throttled[edit source]

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,
Aaron 21:20, 5 April 2019 (UTC)

Slayer Tower resource dungeon map[edit source]

Hi I recently uploaded a map for the resource dungeon and realised I named it incorrectly. I apologise in advance if this isn't an admin request, I tried to fix this myself. Lebdestroyer (talk) 17:31, 20 April 2019 (UTC)

Hey! Thanks for the notice, I fixed the name. If this happens again, you could always tag it with the speedy move template, or if you pass the requirements to be a custodian, you can apply for that and then you'd be able to get the permissions to do it yourself. ɳex undique 17:43, 20 April 2019 (UTC)
Thank you! Silly of me not to think there was a template. In regards to the custodian I'm not sure I trust myself to not make a further mess of things lol so I might hold off from applying for now but thanks again. Lebdestroyer (talk) 17:53, 20 April 2019 (UTC)

Abusefilter tweaks[edit source]

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.

Delete my old user page[edit source]


Is it possible to delete my old user page? User:Zhyphei

I have made a new one and no longer use that username.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Jiefurui (talk) on 05:35, 18 May 2019 (UTC).

Yes check.svg Done. Even though you should be making this request using the old account for verification purposes, I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt because RuneClan confirms Zhyphei was one of your previous names. I've also redirected your old userpage (after deleting the previous history) so that it doesn't leave redlinks behind. Iiii I I I 06:39, 18 May 2019 (UTC)
I've also moved your old talk page to the new name and restored some previously deleted messages (as per RS:DDD). Please feel free to archive your talk page, should you wish to make the older messages less immediately visible - Rawny (talk) 18:38, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

Anachronia mining sites dupes[edit source]

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)

Penguin Locations Gadget[edit source]

... is broken. Highlighting doesn't work. Reset is today. Please fix asap. I suggest just reverting the code. --Saftzie (talk) 00:17, 10 July 2019 (UTC)

Somebody deleted the CSS class that it shares with highlight table. --Saftzie (talk) 00:47, 10 July 2019 (UTC)
This should be fixed now. We changed the highlightTable CSS to only load on pages with table.lighttable, but this didn't catch #pengLocations. Can we move the penguin locations to use the standard lighttable, and make the gadget only deal with the toggling? Are there any downsides to this? ʞooɔ 07:35, 10 July 2019 (UTC)
"Clear highlighted rows" is an ugly long button label. (FWIW, highlightTable is - or has been - a derivative of pengLocations.) I think only one special load instead of two would be preferable. --Saftzie (talk) 03:48, 11 July 2019 (UTC)

Special:Editcount[edit source]

transcluding Special:Editcount like {{Special:Editcount/Nericat}} returns the wrong value. Template:Editcounts uses this to make a table but it's noticably wrong (at time of writing it says I have 1433 edits despite my main + file edits totalling 1448). I could fix the template by adding all the separate editcounts together, but that seems suboptimal. a better fix would be appreciated. Nericat (talk) 03:17, 16 July 2019 (UTC)

Unfinished potions page layout messed up, can't fix[edit source]

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)

MediaWiki:External image whitelist[edit source]

tinypic is shutting down September 16. It already doesn't allow embedding its images. It can be deleted from the whitelist. Maybe add It seems to be an anonymous, small-image hoster with broad SSL/TLS support like tinypic was. --Saftzie (talk) 23:09, 10 September 2019 (UTC)

Proposed change to Gadget-highlightTable.js[edit source]

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:
