This article is about requests for help from general users. For requests for help needing administrator tools, see RuneScape:Administrator requests.

Welcome to the RuneScape Wiki User Help page. This page is here to offer a central location for those who are participating with the development of this wiki to make general requests for help. For admin help, go here.

Note to users: Remove requests once they have been fully dealt with. Archive those that have a notable discussion.

Note for requesters: Once a solution has been presented and implemented, please add a comment signifying completion, if the request hasn't already been archived. This is to help other users know when to archive completed requests.

What this page is for
  • Coding help. Requesting help with writing templates, making a nice user page, or any questions on writing wiki-code can be asked here and users will help to the best of their ability.
  • Requests for non-administrative actions. If help is required with an action (such as moving a page), asking users here for help with that action is acceptable.
  • Questions on how the wiki works. All the policies and processes in use on the RuneScape Wiki may seem a little overwhelming at first. If you need help in understanding any of the policies, or more in depth instructions on a process, asking here is a good start.
  • Other questions to the users of the wiki. - While the Yew Grove is often a better place, a simple question may be asked here for a quick response.
  • An all-in-one place to put things. Many of the Wiki's procedures are lesser-known, so putting a note here is a good way to do something if the correct procedure is not known.
What this page is not for
  • Appealing mutes or bans on your in-game account. We are not Jagex; try looking on the RuneScape Support site instead.
  • Requests for actions involving administrator tools. Please use Admin requests for such requests.
  • Larger discussion with other users on policies or other wide-ranging actions. The Yew Grove is a more suitable location to discuss larger changes to the Wiki's policies, procedures and high-use templates.
  • General chat (about RuneScape or not). General chat about RuneScape (or an off-topic subject) should be taken to individual user talk pages, or article talk pages when applicable.

Quick guide inconsistencies[edit source]

Hi, new to being an active contributor although I have been using the wiki for years, I've been noticing inconsistent steps during the One Small Favour quick guide and wondered if it was due to a mistake or simply my ironman hasn't done related quests to the relevant npc therefore options requiring 2 instead of 3 etc being scrambled on more than one occasion or if it is indeed an error and needs to be corrected.

Lebdestroyer (talk) 00:21, September 13, 2017 (UTC)Lebdestroyer

Both options are possible, but it's been a while since I've done that quest, so I don't know if they're either incorrect, or dependent on related quests for those NPCs. If that option is the option that you see, then please correct it, if it is dependent then other editors will change it to what they see, and then we'll have more prove to see if it is indeed dependent on related quests of NPCs, or if it was just incorrect.

Teleport Map[edit source]

I uploaded a new version of File:Teleport map.png (edit: removed link to not blow up the page), and it has the error "Error creating thumbnail: Invalid thumbnail parameters" As it's a map of the world, it's a huge base image at 6400 × 3200 (20,480,000) pixels. The thumbnail generator has an apparent limit of 12.5m. Have any advice? Smithing-icon.png Illagong (talk) Ranged-icon.png 05:57, October 20, 2017 (UTC)

You can add a colon as the first character of the link, which will cause images and categories to become links instead of their usual behaviour. As for the the actual problem, I'm not sure why it does that, but I'll try to find out. Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 07:17, October 20, 2017 (UTC)

I managed to revert the image, could you supply the image to me as a link from imgur or something or via Discord, maybe I can upload it without errors? Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 08:09, October 20, 2017 (UTC)
I reuploaded your version and it still fails to create a thumbnail. However Map:Teleport map still works luckily, however it doesn't show the image on File:Teleport map.png and Teleportation. I wonder what might be causing it. :S Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 08:16, October 20, 2017 (UTC)

Tooltips and categories[edit source]

I've checked Module:Infobox Item as thoroughly as I can without actually getting to test it (I'm not too keen on accidentally breaking Template:Infobox Item of all templates), and I can't for the life of me figure out why it doesn't seem to categorize items with tooltips into [[Category:Items that have a tooltip]].
The tooltip parameter doesn't quite looks like any of the other parameter checks, but for each thing that it does differently there seems to be another parameter that does roughly the same thing (tradeable adds text using a function other than has_content, and AKA uses cat_map.defined when categorizing). Any ideas? -Hourglass (2011 Hallowe'en event) detail.png I Am Myself Talk III The Spark.png- 02:07, February 13, 2018 (UTC)

I've just created the category, it didn't exist yet, for the rest it looks like it should add that category to items if the parameter is not empty. Do you have an example of an item with a tooltip? Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 10:34, February 13, 2018 (UTC)
I know Aegis blood essence, Amulet of fury, Coal bag, Deathtouch bracelet and Tirannwn quiver 4 for example. Probably a bunch of others too. -Hourglass (2011 Hallowe'en event) detail.png I Am Myself Talk III The Spark.png- 11:36, February 13, 2018 (UTC)
Should now work. There was a small bug in Module:Infobox - one_defined wasn't updated for non-switch infoboxes. It now is so the tooltip category now works (as will Category:Pages with AKA). Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 16:07, February 13, 2018 (UTC)
Pages in MediaWiki are categorized when they are saved. If a transcluded template (including any Lua module) is changed to categorize a page differently, every page that transcludes the template must be edited and re-saved for the new categorization to take effect. (Null edits work for this purpose. Also, bots are great at large numbers of null edits.) The existence of a page in the Category namespace is irrelevant. --Saftzie (talk) 20:04, February 13, 2018 (UTC)
True, pages can have categories that don't have a page yet. I didn't mean that it didn't work because the category didn't exist yet, but more of a note that it just wasn't created yet. :P Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 20:42, February 13, 2018 (UTC)

Adding scan clue icons[edit source]

Is there a guide for how to add scan clue icons to the map at the top of each section in Treasure Trails/Guide/Scans#Darkmeyer? I have added a new location to the table but no idea how to add it to the map. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by ThatAdamsGuy (talk).

Looks like you worked it out; but generally the "link" and "title" phrases should be the same, then you just add the link/title as an id like this :) Magic logs detail.pngIsobelJTalk page 15:26, March 4, 2018 (UTC)

Quest requirements grammar[edit source]

Template:Ability link and Template:Chatl[edit source]

Does anyone know why these templates don't work for me? I see full-size images in navboxes such as Template:Abilities or Template:Troll Warzone. Tested Firefox and Edge, it's broken in both. Any ideas? 5-x Talk 15:49, August 31, 2018 (UTC)

I've been told there's a script or something that makes images bigger for 4k screens and someone told me you have one right? Someone will need to fix it so it doesn't enlarge those particular images for 4k screens. Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 21:24, August 31, 2018 (UTC)
Yeah I do have a 4K screen. Not using any scripts. A Windows 10 setting upscales interfaces and applications though. I guess it could be the problem. Thanks. 5-x Talk 10:19, September 1, 2018 (UTC)
Salix means that we use a script on the wiki that scales up images. It looks like this, and it's in [[MediaWiki:Common.js]]. I didn't make that so I don't know if that's the likely culprit, but it looks like it could be jayden 10:24, September 1, 2018 (UTC)

Image policy on new music album[edit source]

I don't quite understand the image policy and how it would relate to this so I need help to understand it so I know what to do, or not do. I was hoping to upload an image for the new music albums from Runescape. The problem is that the image is from Spotify, so I'm not sure if this falls under Spotify use or Runescape fair use policy? To help understand, this is the album cover for "The Orchestral Collection", but in jpg format. So am I able to use this in png format and label it fair use or what do I do? [[File:Album-The_Orchestral_Collection_.jpg|thumb]]

Fairuza Skye (talk) 07:28, September 17, 2018 (UTC)

The image itself is unlikely to be owned by Spotify. Given what it's of, I'd say it came from Jagex in which case they own the copyright in which case fair use applies as it always does. cqm 07:58, 17 Sep 2018 (UTC) (UTC)
Just name it the same as the album please, 'RuneScape - The Orchestral Collection.jpg'. Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 09:35, September 17, 2018 (UTC)
Ok, I've added the album image and learned how to link it for the 'RuneScape - Original Soundtrack Classics' page. So I'll do the same for the other albums. However, I have a problem with the image I showed for the Orchestral album, how do I rename the image to be `RuneScape - The Orchestral Collection'? It won't let me edit the destination name. Many thanks for the help and guidance with all this! Fairuza Skye (talk) 11:15, September 17, 2018 (UTC)
You can't move images. I have. Thanks for uploading that. Small recharge gem.png AnselaJonla Slayer-icon.png 11:18, September 17, 2018 (UTC)

Category pages listing only a small number when there really are dozens of items in that category[edit source]

For example this page lists 2 items in the tier 85 category: Category:Tier 85 equipment

Is there an easy/simple way to edit this to display more? there is so much to learn and wasn't sure if there was a guide on something like this. Thanks in advance.

Lebdestroyer (talk) 19:01, 3 October 2018 (UTC)

The categories are currently being indexed, that's why the number is so small. Once the indexing is done, the categories will have everything again. :) Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 19:24, 3 October 2018 (UTC)

Rotation template for Travelling Merchant[edit source]

I figured out the rotation for the Travelling Merchant's Shop. I've attempted to write the necessary code to be added to Module:Rotations, but (aside from the obvious permission issue) I'd rather not break such a Module and could use someone who's familiar with the LUA standards here to check and clean-up my code...

I'm also not certain about the offset in the following, it might be 80 instead of 79, but always using the current date make it annoying to test...

local currentEnumeration = p.rotation_days(40, #itemOrder, 79)

The code can be found on https://pastebin.com/ve7cJuDj; it's too long (imo) to add to this page directly. Sorry about the atrocious formatting (there not being any at all ^^' ). 77.109.118.195 15:43, 14 October 2018 (UTC)

Fantastic work. I'll work on making this into a module right now. Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 16:46, 14 October 2018 (UTC)
I'm pretty sure I'm all done with it now - I did some notable rewriting to cut down on the repeated strings then added a full front-end table and a way to see the future/past stocks. You can find the lua code at Module:Rotations/Merchant and the templates to use it at Template:Travelling Merchant and Template:Travelling Merchant future.
I'm not sure how long we should wait to see if the predictions are correct before full deployment, though. At least until next reset, more if you think it is necessary. Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 21:27, 14 October 2018 (UTC)
Ooh, your code looks so much cleaner than mine. Most obliged for cleaning things up and adding the Module and tables! Your explanation at Travelling Merchant's Shop/Details is also vastly more understandable than my attempts on the Talk page... 77.109.118.195 04:14, 15 October 2018 (UTC)
This has been deployed on Travelling Merchant's Shop and Travelling Merchant's Shop/Future. Thanks so much. jayden 00:27, 15 October 2018 (UTC)
That was some fast deployment! The Future table is probably more useful than adding a separate counter on each individual item page. 77.109.118.195 04:14, 15 October 2018 (UTC)

Url Scheme Case Sensitivity[edit source]

The Urls require case sensitivity if navigating directly to the article. Navigating to Kudos to you will bring to a missing article page, but navigating to Kudos to You will bring to the correct page with information. I'm all for having the url's rewritten to match the casing of the title for the article but if possible just don't require it in the URL on first navigation.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 107.132.57.151 (talk) on 23:11, 21 October 2018.

Redirect case sensitive article names is something that is done manually and hasn't been done for a lot of the achievement names, so could take time until all the redirects are there. Talk-to Kelsey 23:13, 21 October 2018 (UTC)

Drops Table and gemw[edit source]

So I was adding the new christmas tokens to unlock tokens page, and was using the Christmas_piñata_loot_bag_(2018) for the items available. After I decided to try to fix the Robin (item) GE price to properly update. I have just started editing coding so I was new to the DropsTable format. I believe I identified the problem as the Robin (item) being the actual item as the "drop" but the exchange page is written as the item is in GE which is "Robin". I tried to add some way for the iamge/item/link to stay as "Robin {item)" while have the GE Price come from the exchange page for "Robin" but I was unable to figure it out. So in the mean time I redid the entire table in a wikitable format, so I was able to plink the robin (item) while using Robin for the GE Price. Is there anyway to change this while using the Drops Table formet? EDIT: Well someone changed everything a got rid of the table with prices and all that. I get combining the 2018 page with the rest of the christmas pinata loots, but not sure why the prices were removed. Either way my question is still if you are able to change what the gemw checks for in a DropsTable format. For future reference. Thanks!  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Coincidal (talk) on 19:10, 1 December 2018‎ (UTC).

I don't believe you can according to the template's documentation, but generally the exchange page for an item should match the name, so you can move an exchange page in the future if the item name doesn't match. It seems the exchange page for the robin item has already been moved to Exchange:Robin (item) - Cuxrie (talk) 20:54, 11 December 2018 (UTC)

Having trouble displaying proper picture[edit source]

I've been having trouble updating File:Underground Pass.png. I updated the image, and it was working initially, but then I realized that I had accidentally left in an ugly white bar on the RHS. I reuploaded it with this error fixed, but then it showed the old version both on the file page and on the page Underground Pass. I then tried uploading the new version again, but it has continued to show the old file. On the file page itself, the new picture shows, but on Underground Pass and on Iban's Temple, where the file is being used, the old version still shows. I don't know how to fix this. Does anyone know what's going on?

--Peloreus (talk) 07:28, 24 December 2018 (UTC)

There are some issues with, I think it's caching, which makes old images show up for a while after they've been updated. I don't think there's anything to do about it except waiting a bit until the right image shows up. -Hourglass (2011 Hallowe'en event) detail.png I Am Myself Talk III The Spark.png- 08:56, 24 December 2018 (UTC)

Potential bug or new mechanic?[edit source]

Hi was just curious about how one would determine if I've discovered something clever to add to a monsters strategies page or if it actually is not intended and should be kept under wraps until confirmed otherwise? I mean I personally feel it is not gamebreaking and it cannot be exploited although it could actually be useful. I've submitted a bug report if that helps but Jagex having many priorities it might not be fixed for a while so how to avoid making assumptions.

For perspective: An old bug that was fixed about a year ago allowed food consumption under the Shield Dome spell without cancelling the spell. Healing under the effects of Shield Dome was not permitted but somehow there was a bug that allowed Rocktails, specifically. Now being a curious newbie to the Wiki the Shield Dome article at the time stated food was allowed (this is how I learnt food was allowed, assuming the previous editor had tested with a sample of Rocktails) and having a background as using Rocktails everywhere I bossed and found Shield Dome to be "working as intended". Later on out of curiousity and experimentation I tested a wide variety of food and it appeared Rocktails were the single culprit.

Fast forward to today and this new discovery is significantly more situational and in a relatively obscure NPC so what is the appropriate action to take?

Help with correcting discrepancies[edit source]

Hi, I was hoping if someone could help explain how to correct the red links occuring on the Shadow Dye page in regards to the augmented khopeshes and the augmented praesul weps?

Also another minor correction needed which I'm struggling to correct is the table on the Aura correctly lists the 3% Brawler aura buff as accuracy where the 5%,7% and 10% tables list them as hitchance buffs. Apologies for being pedantic but hitchance and accuracy are slightly different and I've tried to amend this to no avail. Would love if someone could take the time to explain how to correct these myself so I can improve as an editor too. Thanks!

Lebdestroyer (talk) 17:34, 15 January 2019 (UTC)

Regarding the issue on Shadow Dye (which also happened on the other dyes as well) was caused by the fact that the dyed augmented items from AoD as well as the Khopeshes did not have Category:Augmented items, which is transcluded by this template: {{Augmented degrade|level=92|slot=mh}} for tier 92 main hands and {{Augmented degrade|level=92|slot=oh}} for tier 92 off-hands. Because they did not have that category, they weren't excluded from the autogenerated list on the dye pages. After adding that template with the correct values to the dyed augmented items as well as purging the dye pages will fix this. I just fixed all of them though so now the dye pages are correct again. :)
As for the aura issue, on each individual aura page it has an infobox item (which all items have, although auras aren't item anymore, they are still technically items) as well an infobox aura which contains the description parameter which is shown on the aura page. Simply correcting the value of that parameter on each individual aura page and then purging the aura page will fix that issue. I've also fixed this one. =D
If you encounter an autogenerated list/table, you can check the DPL query's code and look for the template it calls, so for instance for the aura issue, you can see on aura that the DPL queries for each tier call the template {{Infobox aura}}. And the incorrect values on aura were the descriptions, so you can check the individual pages that use that template and correct the value there. I hope this explains it. =D Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 19:04, 15 January 2019 (UTC)

That's a new one. The code paths look like they're browser related, so what browser and version of it are you using?

Drop Source Issue[edit source]

Would anyone know how to correct drop sources listing small amounts of a certain item when there are actually more? using the Mort myre fungus as an example: Ravenous ghoul are a reasonable source of them but by trying to force an update of the list it does not seem correct to this issue? Even searching the exhaustive list does not list Ravenous ghouls as a source when I definitely know they are and their respective page accurately represents so.

I noticed that the other drop sources of mort myre fungus use the {{DropsLine2}} template. So I suspect it's part of a rework where the old DropsLine template is being slowly replaced and perhaps that's why the drops table template only uses the new one? I'll ask someone who's working on it. Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 10:46, 4 March 2019 (UTC)

Drop table conversion bot post m/s rework?[edit source]

Hello,

I'm finding some discrepancies with some drop tables for example the 'Rum'-pumped crab pre-rework dropped rune claws according to this revision 'Rum'-pumped crab which turned into Tiny spiky rune salvage but after spending some time there they don't drop tiny but actually the medium version instead? I've noticed this in a few other places (struggling to recall this very moment) and I'm just curious on inaccuracies because I've based a few updated pages on those individual salvage pages although done with good intentions may possibly mean my edits may be inaccurate based on those sources.

Thumnail image not updating to new file[edit source]

Hi I recently uploaded a new map following the changes to Jatizso dungeon mine after the m/s rework but I can't seem to get it to appear on the article's page, clicking on it does open the new updated image though. I tried refreshing/clearing my cache but I'm still a noob, does it just need more time?

Lebdestroyer (talk) 15:46, 28 March 2019 (UTC)

Try purging the page by clicking 'Refresh' under the dropdown on the file page. MediaWiki takes a bit to recognise that an image has been updated. jayden 15:52, 28 March 2019 (UTC)

Hi, still no luck and tried the refresh/purge function a few times.

Lebdestroyer (talk) 08:24, 5 April 2019 (UTC)

Managed to fix this and figured I'll post it here incase it might help others, so what I did was via bypassing cache for Firefox I did this: Hold both the Ctrl and ⇧ Shift keys and then press R and now it is displaying properly. Sweet! Wikipedia to the rescue haha.

(Category:Needs map) question[edit source]

Hey there,

I'm trying to chip at this list whenever I have some down-time and was just curious for consistencies sake, Mrs. Winkin requires a map versus Farmer Blinkin not requiring one. What is the ideal method I should take? Would I tweak the wiki map code to (no) for Mrs Winkin for example or would I add a map for both?

Thanks

Lebdestroyer (talk) 09:47, 25 April 2019 (UTC)

How to remove Bounty Teleport from Ancient Magicks page[edit source]

Hi! I tried so hard to do this own my own before posting here (can see from scrolling through this page lol that I continuously struggle) but can't for the life of me work it out, which template is it? lol

Lebdestroyer (talk) 08:07, 11 May 2019 (UTC)

Hey there! I took a look at the page, and it seems the DPL script automatically removes spells that are in the "Removed spells" category. So I added the following to the end of the page at Bounty Teleport and it fixed it:
[[Category:Removed spells]]
- Sinister clown face chathead (male).png Tzar Talk 10:50, 11 May 2019 (UTC)
With the help of Ciphrius_Kane, I found out that there's actually a navigation box for removed spells, so the above category tag was removed from that page, and the navigation box for removed spells was added instead. The navigation box automatically adds the category to the page, apparently, so that still fixed your initial problem. :-) - Sinister clown face chathead (male).png Tzar Talk 11:08, 11 May 2019 (UTC)
Ah! Thank you both very much! I'm glad these pages get archived because I am definitely gonna need to refer back to these in the future. Lebdestroyer (talk) 11:59, 11 May 2019 (UTC)

What is Template:Salvage info?[edit source]

Used the random page function to find pages to edit and came across Large bladed orikalkum salvage. I wanted to edit the last paragraph on that article to improve its wording and flow, but the entire text is transcluded from Template:Salvage info. I see that all salvage articles have this same template for content. So I'm wondering what the exact purpose of this template is, why it's being used instead of free editable text, and how one can make changes if necessary? Editing this temp doesn't seem to be user friendly in both source and visual editor. Thanks, Zygomatt (talk) 01:18, 24 May 2019 (UTC)

That template invokes a Lua module called Module:Salvage info. As you can see on the page, it's a bunch of logic to determine what info to put on what salvage page. The reason we do this is because a majority of the information is the same across all salvage pages, and if we were to change one thing on one page, it would have to be changed on all pages. So we avoid duplication of text, but yes at the cost of free editable text.
If you want to improve the wording the final paragraph for orikalkum salvages, you can actually see the wording which goes in the final paragraph on the Module page (ctrl+f "orikalkum salvage" to see the exact spot). Feel free to improve the wording - and what's great is that the change will appear on all orikalkum salvage pages, not just large bladed.

Tables Inside Tables (Weird, I Know)[edit source]

So I'm trying to update my completionism progress on my page and I have all of the 'sub'-requirements there but I want to be able to hide them - the problem is that when I add 'mw-collapsible' it makes the table a bunch of boxes with lines (that don't exist when I take 'mw-collapsible' out, I don't know how to fix this :(

I'm pretty sure it's possible to do because I found an example on the Wikipedia help page (second example) where they do it but theirs isn't inside another table so IDK

I'd like it to look like this but with the '[show]/[hide]' thing in the top right like normal

Ironman badge.png Chee the DragonriderMaster quest cape detail.png 20:25, 13 July 2019 (UTC)

Is it User:Chee/Goals that you're referring to? If so, I think the borders are a result of having the "wikitable" class on the sub-table. Try adding "mw-collapsible" on its own (without adding "wikitable") - Rawny (talk) 21:52, 13 July 2019 (UTC)
Yes! Thank you! <3 I have one last question (sorry!) is it possible to move the '[show]/[hide]' thing to the top-right corner like where it should be - for some reason it's putting it in the middle for some of them? Ironman badge.png Chee the DragonriderMaster quest cape detail.png 05:11, 15 July 2019 (UTC)
You're welcome ^^ Yes, I've made a small edit to the page fixing the first one as it seemed easier to show than describe.

Userboxes Cleanup?[edit source]

So, I don't know who's in charge of Userboxes but I noticed as I was going through them like a week ago that A LOT of them are either outdated or (sorry) ugly or mis-matched will skillcape god-alignment colors, etc.

Would it be okay for me to go and try to fix some of these? (I already did the World Event one below)

Warpriest of Saradomin helm chathead.png This user fought for Saradomin during the Battle of Lumbridge
Warpriest of Zamorak helm chathead.png This user fought for Zamorak during the Battle of Lumbridge
Warpriest of Armadyl helm chathead.png This user fought for Armadyl during the The bird and the beast.
Warpriest of Bandos helm chathead.png This user fought for Bandos during the The bird and the beast.



These boxes look kinda wonky having random colors (also I'm not sure what causes some boxes to be different sizes?):

Dungeoneering This user's favourite skill is Dungeoneering.
Slayer This user trains Slayer when bored.
Dungeoneering This user trains Dungeoneering when bored.
Dungeoneering.png This user believes that the Dungeoneering "skill" is a gussied-up minigame.



also, the RuneScore userbox seems kinda useless if the person has to keep updating it so I was wondering if I could either update this one or make a RuneScore2 Userbox that does this {{Userbox/RuneScore|{{formatnum:{{Hiscore|username|runescore|lvl}}}}}}

just to show that it would still work (and the first one should periodically update for a while, I've been a little more active on RS3 recently):

RuneScore.png This user's RuneScore is 17,420.



RuneScore.png This user's RuneScore is 14,845.



(also if this seems like I know what I'm doing I really, really don't lol I just see patterns and try to mess with them :P)

Ironman badge.png Chee the DragonriderMaster quest cape detail.png 15:02, 15 July 2019 (UTC)

Yes, I think bringing them up-to-date and improving the colours is fine. For the colours, it would be good if you could check that your new versions are readable in both light and dark mode. If you weren't already planning to, it's probably a good idea to try things out in a sub-page of your User page first (before saving changes to the actual templates).
As far as the sizes go, I'm not sure whether you're referring to the image sizes or the font sizes in the examples you've given. The image sizes vary because Template:Userbox/Favskill and Template:Userbox/Train both use another template called Template:Skill clickpic to produce the skill icon, whereas Template:Userbox/Dungeoneering joke uses [[File:Dungeoneering.png|36x36px]] - I think that Template:Userbox/Dungeoneering joke should probably use the Template:Skill clickpic too. For the font size, Template:Userbox/Favskill specifies info-s=8, which Template:Userbox turns into 8pt. Template:Userbox/Dungeoneering joke doesn't specify, so that uses the default in Template:Userbox (which is also 8pt). Template:Userbox/Train specifies info-s = 12px, however this becomes 12pxpt which isn't a valid font-size value, so the output is ignoring that and actually inheriting the font-size from surrounding page elements.
With Template:Userbox/RuneScore, making it update automatically sounds like a good idea to me. I would suggest updating the existing one rather than creating a duplicate, especially since it is not widely used. Feel free to ask if you need assistance with this. - Rawny (talk) 12:43, 21 July 2019 (UTC)
Aha, well trying to figure out how to make the name option was a chore and a half - so unfortunately I tried to make it to a default of your userpage name (lots of googling lmao) but it doesn't seem to want to do that, so rather than a name being optional it's required (ehhhh...) - but yeah, the box should update from now on with current RuneScore data :) Ironman badge.png Chee the DragonriderMaster quest cape detail.png 07:06, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
I've modified the template so that if it's not given any parameters it'll grab the page name. If it is given a parameter, it will attempt to use it with Template:Hiscore, if that fails it will just output the value, e.g.:
Code Result
{{Userbox/RuneScore|123456}}
RuneScore.png This user's RuneScore is 123,456.
So, on User:Chee/Userboxes, {{Userbox/RuneScore}} will use "Chee" as the username. For your second account, you can use {{Userbox/RuneScore|Chee Chee}} as before. - Rawny (talk) 23:30, 23 July 2019 (UTC)

Update "Wanted!" Quest Requirements[edit source]

The Wanted! quest requires you to talk to the Mage of Zamorak. The guide claims you can find him in Varrock. However he doesn't seem to appear until after you start the Abyss quest, which requires the Rune Mysteries quest.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 2601:155:8300:420:bd7d:2017:b6a8:4aad (talk) on 01:52, 22 July 2019 (UTC).

Are you sure? I don't think Rune Mysteries was ever a requirement to see the Mage of Zamorak in Varrock. Are you going to the southeast corner near Aubury's rune shop? Ironman badge.png Chee the DragonriderMaster quest cape detail.png 07:06, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
Seems I was wrong, since this was in the patch notes for today:
The Wanted! quest now requires the Abyss miniquest, since Wanted! requires you to talk the Monk of Zamorak after they move to Varrock.
Also, I checked the Wanted! page and it now lists Abyss Miniquest and Rune Mysteries as requirements, so problem solved! :)

Aligning Tables?[edit source]

Sorry to keep posting here but I'm pulling my hair out about this and it's really confusing to me (I have been working on this for HOURS every day lol)

So basically on my user page I made a table to get everything I wanted in place but there are some things I can't seem to fix
1: Image all the way to the left
2: Name+Title and Comp+MQC Progress in the center
3: Stats box to the right

the stat box is the only one that really bugs me bugs me but I'd like to get them all in place.

Another thing: whenever I '[Expand]' the MQC table it moves both the page and the image+stat box down to the MQC part for some reason, regardless of if I put 'align:top' or 'float:top' or 'valign:top' or 'vertical-align:top' and to be honest I have no idea the subtle distinction between all of those but none of them seem to work for me to keep the image+box at the top

Hi, I've moved your message to the end as entries should be created chronologically. As for your issue, I've added the above to EW3. As for the protection on that page, it's limitted to the autoconfirmed group of users. Users are automatically promoted into the 'autoconfirmed' pseudo-group when their account is more than four days old, giving them the ability to edit semi-protected pages.

Wiki wide metadata[edit source]

Is it possible to get a list/collection/overview for some info (title, release date, type of content like: monster, item, or location) on the articles on this wiki containing an infobox and a release date?

I'm looking for something that's computer friendly readable like JSON and would just like to inquire if this was possible to get without having to scrape the entire website.

It's essentially for a timeline view of monsters, items, locations, etc for the entire runescape history, and maybe something I could use for a program/app/website to display release data inbetween two dates. Sartheria (talk) 19:14, 12 August 2019 (UTC)

Hey, there are a number of ways to get this information in a way better way than scraping the site. One example might be something like this Ask query; you could also use DPL.

{{#ask:

 |?Release date
}}
DPL You could use something like:
{{#dpl:
category=Items
|include={Infobox Item}:release
|table= class=wikitable,Item,Release Date

whenever I remove the sigil part of the template it just moves the item icons to the left a bit and leaves the sigil slot itself intact (but without the icon)

Hey, ther reason is that the fields are posisioned by css, and the background is also an image. To update it a new version of the blank interface image needs to be uploaded and then an admin will need to update the corresponding css so that the images are positioned properly. If you have photoshop skills you could download File:Worn equipment interface.png and remove the icons from the slots and then upload it to File:Worn equipment interface blank.png. Then you can ping me on my talk page User talk:Elessar2 and I'll update the corresponding css when I get a chance. Seers headband 2 chathead.png Elessar2 (talk) 12:08, 24 August 2019 (UTC)
