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 A 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 coordinator via their talk page. Note that bonds are not awarded automatically so please contact the coordinator and allow time to check the task. You will then need to meet any of the project helpers in game to be awarded your reward.

Tasks and rewards[edit source]

Current tasks active until

30 September

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.

NPC dialogue - Task active

Transcribe 30 NPC dialogues onto the wiki.

There are quite a few occasions where we're missing dialogue for NPCs in RuneScape, help us add them.

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.

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.

Please note that some of the NPCs listed below may not have dialogue. For these NPCs please edit the NPC's page and add Category:Not transcribable to prevent it showing up in the list. If the NPC cannot be inteacted with, please use the Category:Non-interactive characters instead.

This is a selection of 50 out of a total of 305 non-player characters that are missing dialogue pages. For a new set, click here.

Detailed item images - Task active

Add 30 missing detailed images

Add missing detailed images

Please see Category:Needs detailed item image for a list of items that may be missing their detailed item image. To take the image:
  • Obtain the item in-game.
  • Follow the instructions here about how to take the image. You must have your in-game graphics set to those specified in this guide.
  • Take a screenshot of the image and crop it.
  • Upload the image to the wiki using Special:Upload.
    • The name should follow the pattern "Item detail.png"
    • For example: Egg's detailed item image is File:Egg detail.png
  • When creating the image add

Type: Detailed item
Subject: [[<name of item>]]

to the page.
  • Edit the item's page and add a link to the image you have uploaded above the first line of text about the item and remove Category:Needs detailed item image from the page.
For some items there is a graphically identical item e.g. +1 etc variants of smithed metal armour. There may already be an image of the identical item on the wiki. In these cases you can download the image which has already been taken and reupload it under the name of the item that needs an image.

Image transparency - Task active

Add transparency or translucency to 30 images.

In order to have the highest quality images possible on the wiki many of them need to have the background removed and we need your help.
It is strongly recommended to NOT use the magic wand tool as it will result in a poor transparency.

We pride ourselves on having excellent quality images on the wiki. One of the things we do to achieve that is to remove distracting backgrounds from images, which we call adding transparency (or translucency for images that have particles or bloom effects). There are always plenty of images which require transparency or translucency to be added to them - they can be found in Category:Images needing transparency and Category:Images needing translucency. Transparency can be quite tricky to do at first, but we have a step-by-step guide on how to add it here. If you are not familiar with adding transparency to images, we recommend that you get feedback from other editors on your first attempts. It can take a few tries to edit transparency well. Please keep in mind that transparency must be done to a certain standard in order to qualify for this project. Some info on translucency can be found here.

Update history - Task active

Add the 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 have not been done yet:

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

Quick tip: If you enable the Default summaries gadget in your preferences you can use an edit summary such as Update history: 7 January 2019 on the first edit, and by ticking the "Use last summary" box the summary will be autofilled on subsequent edits!

To help you should loot the chest in the Magic axe hut using a lockpick with 23 or higher Thieving. Be aware that this chest is in the deep Wilderness and is in area with aggressive magic axes. Make a note of the total number of times you loot the chest and of what loot you obtain and submit your data using the "Add data to the log" option under the crowdsourced data table on the chest page.

Add data of 1,000 chest loots to the log

We have implemented a new loot log to this page - help us start collecting data!

To help you should loot the chest in the Gu'Tanoth. You can world hop to access more chests. Make a note of the total number of times you loot the chest and of what loot you obtain and submit your data using the "Add data to the log" option under the loot table on the chest page.
Dorgesh-Kaan Rich Chest.png

Dorgesh-Kaan chest loot logs - Task active

Add data of 1,000 chest loots to the log

We have implemented a new loot log to this page - help us start collecting data!

To help you should loot the average and/or rich chests in Dorgesh-Kaan. You can world hop to loot more chests. Take care with the average chests located in Zanik and Oldak's houses, as these have different loot tables to other chests and have different logs. Make a note of the total number of times you loot the chest and of what loot you obtain and submit your data using the "Add data to the log" option under the loot table on the chest page.

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 coins if you work on a goal but do not do the full amount of work required to earn a bond. The amount of coins 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 as coins by the coordinators. If you would specifically like a bond please let the coordinator know (note that bonds are traded to you and as such become untradeable).
  • You can claim two bonds over each two week period that tasks are active.
