One Small Wiki Favour is a project to improve the RuneScape Wiki, where wiki users can contribute to a number of ongoing wiki tasks and qualify for receiving in-game rewards, including bonds. Anyone is welcome to participate, whether you're completely new to the wiki or you've been here for a while. If you have not edited before, then this is a great time to get involved!

To participate in this project and GET BOND, take a look at the tasks below and find one that looks exciting -- completing any one of them will earn you a share of a bond. Each task has some advice on how to effectively tackle it, but we strongly recommend joining the #one-small-wiki-favour channel in our Discord to coordinate with other editors, discuss the project, and claim your rewards. If you do not wish to create a discord account you can claim rewards and get help via the talk (discussion) page or by contacting the co-ordinator via their talk page. Note that bonds are not awarded automatically so please contact the coordinator and allow time to check the task, and it may take up to 2 weeks for bonds to be awarded by Jagex. Bonds awarded by Jagex appear directly in your currency pouch.

Tasks and rewards[edit source]

Current tasks active until

04 December

If you have worked on a goal and want to be considered for a bond, please let us know in the OSWF discord channel. One of the project helpers will check your contributions and may award you a bond if you have completed the task. If you have done work on a goal but not managed to complete it fully before the reset time then you may still be rewarded some coins for your work.

If you are awarded a bond then it will be added directly to your RuneScape account - please allow up to a week for Jagex to action our requests for bonds. If you are awarded coins then one of the project helpers will meet you in game to give you your reward - just ask in the discord channel to claim your prize and a project helper will meet you when you are available.

Gathering info during quests

Add the missing info for 4 quests

We are looking for players to help us gather more info about various objects and NPCs that are only available before, during or at the end of quests.

The information we're missing is available in two main formats. There are the category lists, and the list that shows everything grouped per quest. The categories you can help with are:

  • Missing destroy text:
    • Attempt to destroy an item (no need to actually destroy it)
    • Add that text to the infobox
  • Needs dialogue: How to transcribe dialogue
  • Needs dwarf cannon added:
    • (Try to) put down a cannon at the location
    • Add the info to the infobox via the cannon parameter (accepted values: Allowed/Disallowed)
  • Needs examine added:
    • Right-click Examine the item/NPC
    • Add that text to the infobox
  • Needs image: How to take images
  • Needs map: How to make maps
  • Needs detailed item image: How to take DIIs
    • In cases where it's impossible to obtain a DII, go to the item's page and remove the following line: [[Category:Needs detailed item image]]
When you are done, edit the item(s) you helped with on both pages. On the first page, strike the item(s) using <s>The item</s>. On the second page, edit the table to say "Yes" instead of "No" for your item(s).

Ticks per action

Add ticks to 100 recipe templates

We recently added ticks to the recipe template to display the time it takes to complete 1 action, but many recipes are still missing this.

The Category:Recipes missing ticks contains all the pages/recipes which are missing ticks per action. 1 tick is equal to 0.6 seconds, and all in game actions can be measured in ticks. See ticks for more information.

In some cases the ticks per action may already be on the wiki; otherwise, they need to be tested in game. It can generally be assumed that similar actions take the same number of ticks: for example, adding a herb to a vial of water takes 2 ticks regardless of the specific herb.

Ticks can be added to the template by adding the 'ticks' argument: add |ticks = # (where # is the number of ticks per action) to the template, just after 'image', 'amount' or 'name' and before 'skill'.

For recipes where the time varies (for example forged items) 'ticks' may be set to 'varies' and a 'ticksnote' should be given, see bronze sword for an example:

|ticks = varies
|ticksnote = See [[Smithing#Forging_items|smithing page]] for details.

For recipes where there are 2 possibles lengths of time the arguments 'ticks2' and 'ticksnote' should be used, see attack potion for an example:

|ticks = 2
|ticks2 = 1
|ticksnote = When mixing a single potion

Update history

Add patch notes from 4 different updates to relevant pages

One of our newest (and most ambitious) projects is to document information about how game updates have affected content over time. A group of editors is currently working through old patch notes and copying them on to pages of content that was affected by each patch.

This information is organised chronologically in a new section called "Update history" which is being added to pages. You can help by doing this for the patch notes listed below. There is a project page which explains how to add in a new patch note here, as well as a dedicated #update-history channel on our Discord.

Here's some that we are prioritising from 2014:

You can find more on User:Tombomb/Update History. Please mark them off on both pages when you're done!

Money making guide review

Review 5 of our skilling money making guide

We need players to test our money making guides! Currently we are looking for feedback on the "skilling" type of guides and want to know whether the items involved can be bought and sold reliably and whether any updates or improvements are needed for the methods.

To help you should:
  1. Buy the required items for a method
  2. Test the required method and record how long it takes to obtain the times listed/how many were obtained in an hour
  3. Sell the items produced
  4. Use the feedback form here to tell us about how well the guide worked You can review any guide from the list on Money making guide/Skilling

Taking female images

Take 20 images of items worn by female characters

A popular project idea from our survey this year was to have more images of items which have a different appearance when worn by female characters. We are looking for players to help us take images of these items.

  • If your character is not already female you can change this with the Makeover Mage.
  • We have a list of items which may potentially have a different appearance for female characters here. For each item you should wear the item in game and see if there is a significantly different appearance to the male version on the wiki page.
  • If there is not a significant difference please add a comment to the sheet to say that you have tried the item already.
  • If there is a significant difference then please take an image and upload it to the wiki.
    • Note that some items are part of set - in this case you should include all items in one image. You can use the existing images on relevant pages to see which items should be included in a set image.
    • You can use this guide to take a high quality image; follow the instructions for taking an equipped item image. Please follow the instructions carefully and ask for help on Discord if you are finding it difficult to take the image.
    • Follow the instructions to upload your image. You should name the image: "[Item name] equipped (female).png". For items which are part of a set, all the items should be in one image named "[name of item set page] equipped (female).png".
    • Add a comment on the sheet to say that you have taken the image - if you have taken a set image remember to comment for each item.

Rules[edit source]

  • You must have a wiki account and cannot be blocked. Anonymous edits will not count. You can sign up for a wiki account at Special:CreateAccount.
  • The reward for completion of each task will be one bond. If multiple editors contribute to a finite goal then the prize may be split between them.
  • You may also be awarded GP if you work on a goal but do not do the full amount of work required to earn a bond. The amount of GP will be equal to the percentage of the task being completed. You must do at least 25% of the total task to claim a reward.
  • If you are awarded a bond or a share of a bond, you can get in contact with one of the project runners on Discord, and claim it in-game. Bonds are generally awarded by Jagex which may take up to 2 weeks, and they will appear directly in your currency pouch.
  • You can claim 2 bonds over each 2 week period that tasks are active.
