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

29 April

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.

Item actions - Task active

Add actions for 500 items.

The wiki is currently missing the right-click options for every item. Add the inventory, ground, equipped, and bank actions for 500 items.

  • Go to this spreadsheet for a list of all applicable items.
  • Click the corresponding link to go to the item's page. Then edit the infobox (Template:Infobox Item, at the top of the page).
  • Copy and paste the text from any available actions cell to just above the |value = parameter. Put each cell on a new line if there's more than one applicable.
  • On the spreadsheet, add your wiki username to get credit and show others that that item is done.
See Excalibur for an example page.

Video and livestream pages - Task active

Create pages for 30 videos or livestreams.

The wiki is currently missing pages documenting past Runescape videos and livestreams. We are looking for help creating them! These pages can be created by anyone and don't require in game actions to create.

  • These pages should have titles that match the title of the video or livestream. The media can be found on both the official Runescape Youtube and Twitch pages.
  • Each page should include {{Infobox media}} followed by a short text about the media. The media links will need to be added in a separate edit so as not to be blocked.
  • If the media contains dialogue, {{Needs dialogue}} should be placed at the top of the page.
See An Introduction to Elder God Wars: Azzanadra's Quest for an example page.

Create/complete court case transcripts - Task active

Create 4 new or complete existing transcripts as either the prosecution or defence

Create 4 new or complete existing transcripts as either the prosecution or defence i.e. the transcript from the point of view of one side = 1 transcript for task progress.

We are looking for players who are playing through Court Cases to transcribe the case's dialogue onto the wiki. If you do not already have one, you will need to obtain a court summons to start a case; however these can easily be obtained through killing monsters, pickpocketing or simply opening tradeable caskets. When playing through the case you will have to choose to defend or prosecute the case, you can see which option dialogue is required for in the table below. Court case dialogue varies depending on whether the player undertakes all of the pre-trial examination of the evidence and witnesses; in this task we are interested in the dialogue when the player completes all the required preparation as set out in the guides on the cases' pages.

Record the dialogue, exactly as it appears in game, as you play through the case on the dialogue page. The wiki has a style guide from transcripts here; but it is probably easier to switch to source mode editor and edit one of the existing case's pages to see an example of how to format the court case transcript. You can also use the tool here to automatically transcribe dialogue.

If you are creating a new transcript you should use the red link in the table below to start a new page using the correct naming format. By looking at existing transcripts you will see the standard sections used to break down the transcript. You will see that there are some standard sections common to all cases that are added by linking the relevant section from Transcript:Court Cases. You will also see that separate transcripts are created for the text on the court summons and any case reports and that these are then linked on the case transcript - where these need to be created a red link is included in the table.

Farming plant images and examines - Task active

Add 20 missing or retaken images of plants

Add or retake images of plants (5% progress to bond per image) and add missing plant examines (2% progress to bond per examine)

We are looking for players to capture or retake images of and examines from farming plants in their various different states. There are a variety of images and examines required for versions including:
  • Seed (w) - when the plant has just been planted and watered.
  • Growing (w) - when the plant is growing and has been watered. Please take these images when the plant is at least half grown so the appearance is clear.
  • Diseased - plant is diseased. Please take these images when the plant is at least half grown so the appearance is clear.
  • Dead - plant has died. Please take these images when the plant is at least half grown so the appearance is clear.
  • Picked/without berries - fully grown after all produce has been harvested (for plants that respawn produce).

Please use the guide here for instructions on how to take good quality images and here for guidance on uploading them to the wiki. The file name should be the same as the the name used to select each version in the switch infobox e.g. File:Strawberry (Farming, growing (w)).png (Strawberry (Farming)), File:Cactus (Farming, grown (with spine).png (Cactus (Farming)).

The following plants need images (please mark off when completed by using around the name of the required image when it has been uploaded):

To get a missing examine simply right-click the plant at the required stage. Copy the exact text to the right examine field in the infobox (this may be easier on the source mode editor).

The following plants need examines (please mark off when completed by using around the name of the required examine when it has been added):

Image transparency - Task active

Add transparency 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.

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. There are always plenty of images which require transparency to be added to them - they can be found in Category:Images needing transparency.

Open the image in a new tab and find the newest version of the image in the File history section - download this version of the image. Then follow the guide here to add transparency to the image. After you have finished the transparency you will need to re-upload it as a new version of the image (see here for some help on how to do this) and edit the file page using the edit button at the top to remove the {{trans}} tag to stop it showing up as an image needing transparency.

It can take a few attempts to get the hang of adding high quality transparency -if you are not familiar with adding transparency to images, we recommend that you get feedback from other editors on your first attempts in the #one-small-wiki-favour channel on Discord. Please keep in mind that transparency must be done to a certain standard in order to qualify for this project.

Expand stub pages - Task active

Expand 75 stub pages

There are many stub pages that requre expanding. They range from almost empty pages to nearly complete ones. Use your expertise to pad out these pages with relevant information.

  • The page name should be bolded which is done by surrounding text with three 's ('''Guthixian butterfly icon''')
  • Once complete, remove the {{Stub}} template from the page
For the full page list see 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 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.
