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.

Tasks and rewards[edit source]

These specific tasks will be active until 26 June, or until someone finishes them.

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 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.

Obtain missing disassembly data[edit source]

Task: Disassemble any of the below items until you obtain 15,000 non-junk materials and submit data on what materials you have obtained

There are full instructions on how to carry out the task here. Once you have obtained the data, simply submit it using the form on that page. If you prefer, you can also submit directly to @Gaz#7521 on discord.

Do not wear the invention master cape (or max cape containing the perk), and do not use a B.A.N.K. Stander while disassembling.

Please note that many of these items are hard to obtain in bulk; however in the currently open weapon diversity beta you can import a save from the live game every hour. Therefore, you may buy items in the live game, load your account on the beta and disassemble them, and repeat this every hour to increase your sample size for difficult to obtain items.

Items where more disassembly data is needed are in the below categories. Approximate numbers are given for the number of items needed to be disassembled to reach 15,000 non-junk materials, assuming maximum junk reduction.

Needs data

These should be easy to get data for, since they're all tradeable and relatively cheap

Needs data, but hard to get

At time of writing, the disassembly categories that we most don't have data for are:

Extra is only mildly useful

Low priority but might have some use for extra data.

POF Detailed item images[edit source]

Task: Take and add transparency detailed item images for player-owned farm animals.

Take and add transparency to detailed item images for player-owned farm animals. Make sure to have your Anti-Aliasing option set to FXAA+MSAA, and textures set to uncompressed when taking an image. You can easily take them from your chatbox when you're selling them to the respective buyer or using the animals on Maemi located in Draynor Manor. For transparency, please follow the guide here.

While having the correct name on your file, upload them here (this will add {{DII license}} automatically):
Select files (or drop them here)...

    After uploading the image, add them to the respective page by pasting this code [[File:{{subst:PAGENAME}} detail.png|left]] right before the first paragraph.

    For animals with (unchecked) versions, the unchecked version should be added above the checked one with [[File:{{subst:PAGENAME}} (unchecked) detail.png|left]].

    After adding both checked and unchecked images, when possible, remove [[Category:Needs detailed item image]] (usually located at the bottom).

    Monster data[edit source]

    Task: Add monster data to any 40 monsters' pages

    We are missing monster data from the following monsters. Use the new Monster Examine spell to find the information and add it to the pages. Contact @Gaz#7521 on discord if you need help.

    There are a total of 420 monsters available for this task. Here is a random selection of 50 of them. Click here to generate a new list, or click here for the full list.

    Adding information to pages

    Once you have the monster examine, head to the page and click 'Edit source'. You should find Infobox Monster new at the top of the edit box, it looks something like:

    {{Infobox Monster new
    |name = Strongbones
    |id = 6473

    Depending on what the monster is missing, your task is to ensure the following parameters are filled out:

    • immune_to_poison = Yes or no
    • immune_to_deflect = Yes or no
    • immune_to_stun = Yes or no
    • attack = number
    • ranged = number
    • magic = number
    • defence = number

    For some monsters, the attack, ranged, magic, and defence lines may be missing. Add these below the immune_to_stun line. Some values were also changed in the latest update for the following cells:

    • aff_weakness = number
    • aff_melee = number
    • aff_ranged = number
    • aff_magic = number

    If anything else is missing, feel free to fill it out while you are there.

    Update history[edit source]

    Task: 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 2018:

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

    NPC dialogue[edit source]

    Task: Transcribe 50 NPC dialogues onto the wiki.

    There are quite a few occasions where we're missing dialogue for NPCs in RuneScape. Help us by creating transcript pages (see Transcript:Donie as an example) and adding the dialogue for an NPC. Our style guide on transcripts contains information on how to style these pages appropriately. You should not add quest-related dialogue for an NPC to their transcript page, this belongs on the quest's transcript instead. After the transcript has been created, remember to add a link to it on the corresponding NPCs page.

    We strongly recommend using Alt1's "transcribe" feature, which quickly and easily transcribes dialogue by reading the text on your screen. You can then copy this onto the wiki and make minimal formatting changes.

    This is a selection of 50 out of a total of 2606 non-player characters that are missing dialogue pages. For a new set, click here.

    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 goal then the prize may be split between them.
    • 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.
    • This project is currently in a trial phase, so specific logistics and prizes may be subject to change.
