New Weakness Categories[edit source]

There is consensus at Forum:Weakness category to create categories for monsters with each kind of weakness. Because of the scale of this undertaking, it will require volunteer help. Please see the previously mentioned thread for details. Xmas07 presents.gifStelercusSanta hat detail.png 14:08, August 23, 2010 (UTC)

Do these categories already exist? I wouldn't want to make duplicates. Matt (t) 08:24, September 4, 2010 (UTC)

Use the following categories:

  • Category:Weak to stab attacks
  • Category:Weak to slash attacks
  • Category:Weak to crush attacks
  • Category:Weak to magic attacks
  • Category:Weak to ranged attacks
  • Category:Weak to melee (use only if monster is generally weak against melee. Do not add Weak to slash and Weak to melee, it is not necessary)
  • Category:Weak to poisoned weapons

How do I make a link to categories here without putting the page in the cat?

222 talk 01:44, September 18, 2010 (UTC)

AWB can possibly speed this up. Infobox monster has also been modified to automatically add categories, but it is being very buggy and many pages are not showing in the category, anyone who can fix this or add support for multiple weaknesses should try and fix it. 222 talk 04:32, September 18, 2010 (UTC)

This project has been finished, thanks to Matthew2602 for doing all monsters lvl 100+ and myself, all monsters lvl 1-100. Hopefully our viewers can make use of this information. P.S. AWB doesn't just possibly speed it up, it makes it heaps faster. 222 talk 02:15, September 19, 2010 (UTC)

You know, I contacted wikia about fixing the wiki's string limit so that Template:Infobox Monster would give the categories if mentioned in the "weakness=" parameter, so as soon as that is fixed it would be nice if those would be removed from the pages as they will be given automatically.

Will the categories duplicate or just remain as is? 222 talk 03:17, September 19, 2010 (UTC)

Aftermath of Page maintenance page[edit source]

RuneScape:Page maintenance was created along with some other pages as a result of consensus at Forum:Page maintenance page. A few things need to be completed as soon as possible.

Moving discussions[edit source]

All discussions previously placed on article talk pages need to be moved to their own sub-pages on ATBS and ATBM.

Done. 222 talk 10:45, September 23, 2010 (UTC)

Fixing templates[edit source]

Template:vfd top and possibly Template:vfd bottom need to be modified to remove Category:Requests for deletion after archiving. This is to make RuneScape:Page maintenance run correctly.

This must be done manually when archiving, 222. Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 09:10, September 19, 2010 (UTC)
K 222 talk 09:14, September 19, 2010 (UTC)
Done. (to a point) 222 talk 10:45, September 23, 2010 (UTC)

Fixing another template[edit source]

Template:Rfm and Template:Rfs need to be updated to lead to the ATBS/ATBM page as well as a link to the relevant discussion page, WITHOUT PRODUCING A RED LINK.

Get going, 222 talk 08:31, September 19, 2010 (UTC)

It does that already... Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 09:12, September 19, 2010 (UTC)
There is still a red link. I know cos I changed the template myself. 222 talk 09:14, September 19, 2010 (UTC)
Where is this red link? What page? Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 09:15, September 19, 2010 (UTC)
Actually, it's gone now. There was previously a real red link on the Split template. Is the pale red coloured link meant to be there? 222 talk 09:21, September 19, 2010 (UTC)
Oh, that's a easy fix. Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 09:25, September 19, 2010 (UTC)
Done. 222 talk 10:45, September 23, 2010 (UTC)

More issues have cropped up[edit source]

and are being fixed by a variety of users, please report any other problems here 222 talk 10:45, September 23, 2010 (UTC)

Fill in the blanks[edit source]

Fill in the Dungeoneering pouch image column at Summoning pouches. LordDarkPhantom 14:20, August 14, 2010 (UTC) Done =D

Task has been completed. I'd like to add to this and say just to fix up all of the Dungeoneering Summoning images. Some of them have shadows, some of them aren't categorized, and some of them just aren't there. ʞooɔ 21:00, August 14, 2010 (UTC)

HasStrategy[edit source]

All pages with a strategy sub-page need to have the {{HasStrategy}} template added to it, per consensus at Forum:Strategy guides. 222 talk 10:51, September 10, 2010 (UTC)

Court case scrolls[edit source]

Move all the ways to obtain a court summons from the Court Cases page to the Court Cases/Scroll finder page. Also wikify the latter page. Thanks, LordDarkPhantom 14:11, October 16, 2010 (UTC)

Add Category:Distractions and Diversions to Template:Court details (not sure how to do it). Thanks, LordDarkPhantom 10:24, October 17, 2010 (UTC)

Oh my that was tough. Wink Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 10:28, October 17, 2010 (UTC)

Quest difficulties[edit source]

Quite a few quest pages has the wiki difficulty in {{Quest details}} at the maximum which is "5". Thsi is because the parameter was defined as "difficulty" instead of "wdifficulty". So in the details, if there is a number after "difficulty" we need to change it to "wdifficulty". Matt (t) 06:36, October 17, 2010 (UTC)

I'm going to AWB the lot once I work out the settings. 222 talk 06:57, October 17, 2010 (UTC)
Good luck, I already tried... Matt (t) 06:59, October 17, 2010 (UTC)
Complete!!! Thanks for the luck Lol 222 talk 08:32, October 17, 2010 (UTC)

Adding new drops templates[edit source]

A large amount Monster pages need the new drop templates to be added. This will be a massive job to tackle, which is why many users need to help. See this and that for more information.

222 talk 10:44, August 20, 2010 (UTC)

Only problem with that is that the rarity is commonly guess work. Matt (t) 11:27, August 21, 2010 (UTC)

See User:Chicken7/Drops for help on this topic. Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 11:41, August 21, 2010 (UTC)

It's still usually guess work between uncommon and rare. Matt (t) 11:47, August 21, 2010 (UTC)
I just remebered if you don't know and it doesn't say put it as uncommon and it can be changed if needed. Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 09:55, August 22, 2010 (UTC)
Okey dokey. Matt (t) 10:18, August 22, 2010 (UTC)

Some pages will be [[:Category:Needs drop table|Here]]. Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 11:37, August 28, 2010 (UTC)

of course one of the sneaky things that game developers do is to change drop rates and such, either in name of 'game balancing' or just to keep the users guessing, which of course keeps interest in the game, just an observation. ~kytti khat 08:34, September 1, 2010 (UTC)

This, ofcourse, is NOT true. In the past 2 years, jagex altered the droprate of a monster only ONCE, and that was Tormented Demons. This was done because jagex did not forsee that players would come up with methods as efficient as they are now to kill them. -- joske

Not true. I've been slaying for literal years. It used to be easy to get a whip inside 3 hours, but much harder to kill abby demons. Now I can go weeks without seeing whips and often times do. Same with most other slayer monsters, bosses, and anything else with a semi-rare valuable drop. The more they are killed, the more Jagex lowers the drop rate. Be better if they solved the root problem and just made things harder to kill. HaloTalk 12:40, September 2, 2010 (UTC)

Since this isn't a drop log this shouldn't matter as it will be as easy to change as it was when they were just lists. Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 10:10, September 5, 2010 (UTC)

Slayer monster pages[edit source]

Per Forum:Slayer monster pages, we will add who assigns a slayer monster to the infobox. We will need to create new parameters in the Infobox Monster template, one for each slayer master. The parameters should be named after the slayer masters. Please note that the parameters should only have the original slayer master's name, meaning that Spira, Ichtyrin (however it's spelled), and Lapalok should not have parameters.

The specifications for the template are as follows:

  1. Each parameter is set to no by default. If the parameter is changed to yes, that means that the slayer master assigns the monster.
  2. A new line should be added to the infobox, named "Monsters assigned by:". If a master assigns the monster, it should be listed there. Please note that if multiple masters assign a monster, their names go all go in that line, separated by commas.
  3. If no slayer masters assign the monster, the Monsters assigned by line should be omitted.
  4. The monster should be added to the category "Monsters assigned by (name)" if the parameter is set to true.

This will require some work to finish, but it shouldn't take long, since we have a list of who assigns what. Note that a bot is required to add all of the parameters into all the infobox monster templates. Please post here if you are going to add the parameters, since we don't want edit conflicts. --LiquidTalk 22:55, October 9, 2010 (UTC)

Don't you mean "If no slayer masters assign the monster, the Monsters assigned by line should be omitted" ? --Saftzie (talk) 23:12, October 9, 2010 (UTC)
Since it was edited, I guess he did.... --Saftzie (talk) 00:31, October 10, 2010 (UTC)

I've created a list of categories for the monsters

And they are all in a hub category titled Category:Monsters by Slayer master which is in the Slayer and Bestiary categories.

All the above categories are currently being held in my sandbox, please remove them from there when completed. 222 talk 23:27, October 9, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - It would be useful if someone could provide the required settings to apply these categories using AWB. 222 talk 23:35, October 9, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - If no one objects, I'll take this one on. I've read the forum article, plus I have some ideas of my own. --Saftzie (talk) 01:17, October 10, 2010 (UTC)

Aside: I'm no help for the AWB settings, though. --Saftzie (talk) 01:19, October 10, 2010 (UTC)

Uh, how do we AWB this? I need settings. 222 talk 05:41, October 18, 2010 (UTC)

Why do we have params for both Turael and Spria? If I'm not mistaken, they give the same monsters. ʞooɔ 22:49, October 11, 2010 (UTC)

That's so if some high-level editors comes around and adds both or replaces the other, nothing bad will happen and will display normally. Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 22:53, October 11, 2010 (UTC)

Dungeoneering Arrow Articles[edit source]

Go through all of the dungeoneering arrow articles and either then include the poisoned types and pictures in the article, then create proper redirects with the (p), (p+), and (p++) suffixes, or create new articles for the poisoned versions of the arrows. Lgm432 19:02, August 15, 2010 (UTC)

Redirects completed. Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 01:33, August 16, 2010 (UTC)
Someone still needs to add pics and info though. Lgm123990 16:18, August 16, 2010 (UTC)
I added a bit of info with this bot, but still needs pics, probably, and maybe a bit more detailed info on how to make them, but I think that's a bit redundant. Milestone cape (50).pngAmeobea10Talk Contribs #Virtus mask.png as Nucleobot

Page creation[edit source]

See User:Cook Me Plox/Sandbox for a list of all the pages that need to be created/split. Lots. 200. Get on it ^^ ʞooɔ 10:09, September 6, 2010 (UTC)

Adding examine info[edit source]

There are a lot of pages that simply don't have examine information on them. I've created a category (Category:Needs examine added) for pages missing that. The list should get populated soon. If there's a page in there, you can just find it in-game, whether it's an item, monster or character, and simply examine it. Add that to the infobox, and it will automatically get removed from Category:Needs examine added. ʞooɔ 21:56, July 28, 2010 (UTC)

Isn't there a way we can remove this from some, because for some you simply cannot get the examine. EG: Discontinued NPCs, unreleadses updates. 09:33, August 19, 2010 (UTC)
I suppose we could add N/A to it. ʞooɔ 06:22, August 22, 2010 (UTC)
We could set it so that "no" or "n/a" or any other negative phrases would trigger an "examine not avaliable" message. Though for discontinued NPCs there's always a way to get it, via youtube vids or what have you. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 03:20, September 19, 2010 (UTC)

I've added the examine text to the 50 I could examine. I also simply added N/A to the ones that can't be examined yet as I didn't feel like adding it to the infobox templates for only about 10 items that couldn't be examined. Hope this helps.

Remove the stub template from non-stub articles[edit source]

The stub template is on like 4100 articles I think. Most of these are complete articles and don't need this template. Don't just blindly remove it, you need to have judgment to know what is a stub and what isn't. HaloTalk 19:44, August 2, 2010 (UTC)

Link to stub-article list here. (Added link for lazy people like me.) Lgm123990 19:32, August 16, 2010 (UTC)
I've been doing some AWB work removing some stub tags as per RS:TODO. However, I've noticed that almost all of the music track articles have stub tags. I am confused as to if I should remove these of not.
Milestone cape (50).pngAmeobea10Talk Contribs #Virtus mask.png 00:42, November 14, 2011 (UTC)
After a forum debate, it has been decided that these stub tags should not be removed unless the page has a fully-filled out infobox, an included sound file, and at least one line of description text. Milestone cape (50).pngAmeobea10Talk Contribs #Virtus mask.png 00:55, December 12, 2011 (UTC)

Court Cases[edit source]

Move all the ways to obtain a court summons from the Court Cases page to the Court Cases/Scroll finder page. Also wikify the latter page. Thanks, LordDarkPhantom 15:48, October 24, 2010 (UTC)

Indexing the Yew Grove archives[edit source]

The Portal pages need to be completed, see here to help! Cheers, 222 talk 09:50, June 20, 2011 (UTC)

Shilo Village areas[edit source]

Several of the underground areas in the Shilo Village quest could do with area information, mapping, etc, maybe even their own articles. For instance, there is little information for the Tomb of Rashiliya tomb where Nazastarool is fought and which is available to fight undead ones after the quest. --Henneyj 18:44, September 30, 2011 (UTC)

Removing Old Game Guide Citations[edit source]

All the citations to the old obsolete Game Guide that was replaced by Jagex's wiki have to be removed. All uses of {{CiteGG}} have to be removed and all links to non-existent pages have to be removed. However, links to pages that have been moved should not be removed unless the original content doesn't exist. Examples of this are news article citations and postbag citations. Milestone cape (50).pngAmeobea10Talk Contribs #Virtus mask.png 00:53, December 12, 2011 (UTC)

This has a list of all the old KB links. Some of them, such as postbags, wall papers and god letters still exist so it's possibly more efficient to do it manually. cqm talk 01:02, February 10, 2012 (UTC)
I've removed references to "Community powered" Jagex Wiki pages because they are far less reputable than ours and thus should not be cited. References to Jagex staff editable-only pages remain.222 talk 03:05, May 3, 2012 (UTC)

TT Armor Sets[edit source]

Treasure Trail armor sets are no longer.. items, due to scamming due to the different prices of leg and skirt sets. So yeah, we need to do an overhaul for our box set articles. Blaze_fire.png12.png 02:16, May 5, 2012 (UTC)

Shops Tables[edit source]

Every article in Category:Shops that uses a table to list products and not {{StoreTableHead}} and {{StoreLine}} need to be replaced. ɳex undique 23:07, December 19, 2011 (UTC)

Updating CitePostbag[edit source]

Work on Squeal of Fortune Pages[edit source]

All of the new Squeal of fortune pages in the category Squeal of Fortune need to be written, images need to be added, and info added to infoboxes.
