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?

Can't figure out how to add categories to a page[edit source]

I'm trying to add a category to specify item X is a dual-wielded override for skill X. Can anyone tell me how to do so?  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Hiryuuka (talk) on 21:40, 17 June 2019 (UTC).

soooo I found something broken that I don't know how to fix[edit source]

In Armoury there's a search engine thing that can look for any piece of equipment in the game. If you search for the most generic 2H weapon it will break on the 2nd(?) page. I'm not really sure what to do here so I put a cleanup template since that seems like it's the closest thing to 'there is broken code here'

e: also what's with my signature breaking <_< >_>

Changing template name?[edit source]

If one changes the name of a template, does one have to go to every article, where it is used and manually rename them as well~to make them work? Exaldin (talk) 23:55, 16 January 2020 (UTC)

You could leave the old name as a redirect. depends what exactly you're trying to do Chen (talk) 23:56, 16 January 2020 (UTC)
I was thinking of renaming the Template:Monarchs to Template:Royalty or something similar, because monarchs is a misleading word, since a monarch is a head of a state.Exaldin (talk) 00:02, 17 January 2020 (UTC)
In that case leaving the old name as a redirect should suffice, but you'll also need to change the value of the name parameter in the template itself as that has to be identical to the name of the template.

Drop list from monsters[edit source]

So I just found a drop that wasn't on the drop list for a monster, but they way the list works is it pulls data from something so I couldn't find a place to add my drop. How should I go about it?  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Pils (talk) on 11:18, January 24, 2020 (UTC).

What drop/monster is it? Chen (talk) 11:19, 24 January 2020 (UTC)
Ghosts (regular level 25 ones, I killed them in the varrock sewers) also rarely drop ghostly essence (I got them per 2 twice in a slayer task).  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Pils (talk) on 06:19, January 25, 2020 (UTC).
You can edit their drop table on Template:DropsLineGhosts. In the future please sign your messages on talk pages using ~~~~ or the signature button. Chen (talk) 07:03, 25 January 2020 (UTC)

Oyster[edit source]

I've just discovered that the Oyster drops (3) costume-skipping tickets can come from monthly Oyster (RSN Blush)  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Blush (talk) on 01:15, 4 February 2020‎ (UTC).

The reward you get from the oyster depends on your total level, it is then the same as a reward casket of the appropriate difficulty (looking at the rewards table, in this case it would be a Hard casket i'm guessing) Meeeeerds msg 01:19, 4 February 2020 (UTC)
