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 <_< >_>

Invalid RSN[edit source]

On every page with a RuneScape display name input field (such as quest guides, skill calculators, achievement pages, etc.) I get an "Invalid RSN" popup in top right. I haven't put anything in the field. Can this be changed or fixed? Or is the issue on my end (local storage)? How can I get rid of it? 5-x Talk 17:54, 15 January 2020 (UTC)

I deleted the rsn field in the local storage and this fixed the problem, although it probably won't prevent this from happening in the future. 5-x Talk 19:22, 15 January 2020 (UTC)

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. Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 18:30, 21 January 2020 (UTC)

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)

Inventory template feature requests[edit source]

I would like if someone could add support for noted items to {{Inventory}}. We have it on osw and I miss it here. I tried but couldn't figure it out; the items weren't aligning properly and I'm not great at CSS. Unsure if it would have to be site CSS. Here's some related files:

Support for 100k/100M etc instead of 100000 and 100000000 would be nice as well. チェン (話し合う) 23:08, 5 March 2020 (UTC)

Noted and formatted numbers have been added Seers headband 2 chathead.png Elessar2 (talk) 11:34, 17 March 2020 (UTC)

File names[edit source]

Can file names have a colon in them or will that cause errors? Jampolo 05:28, 11 April 2020 (UTC)

No, dashes (-) are used in placement instead. ɳex undique 05:34, 11 April 2020 (UTC)
It's causing a broken link when referencing items with colons in the name through the Dropsline template. Example: Keshik ger when referencing Mission Report: Everlight Silvthril. Jampolo 05:42, 11 April 2020 (UTC)
You can override the default image links using the |Image= parameter, listed on the template's documentation. I fixed it, thanks for bringing it up. ɳex undique 05:53, 11 April 2020 (UTC)

Smoking Kills[edit source]

Apparently when someone made Restless Ghost not required for Icthlarin's Little Helper, the Smoking Kills quest now no longer has Restless Ghost as a requirement. I would change this requirement myself on the Module:Questreq/data page, but somehow I am not a registered user. It lists the Ghostspeak Amulet as a required item, but you need to complete Restless Ghost to start Smoking Kills.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Aliceharp (talk) on 15:59, 23 April 2020 (UTC).

I fixed it, thanks for letting us know. The reason you couldn't edit it is because it's a semi-protected page that only allows autoconfirmed users to edit it. You become autoconfirmed automatically when your account is over 4 days old. ɳex undique 16:22, 23 April 2020 (UTC)
Thanks! I guess it has something to do with me forgetting to confirm my email until today. Appreciate the fix and info! Aliceharp (talk) 16:41, 23 April 2020 (UTC)

Purge pages[edit source]

How do you purge a page?  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 00:00, 26 April 2020 (UTC).

Click refresh at the top under the "more" dropdown. WiggleCat (talk) 01:16, 26 April 2020 (UTC)

Payments[edit source]

How can I pay for for example Treasure Hunter keys in sterling..  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Me arrows (talk) on 12:58, April 28, 2020 (UTC).

I assume you mean sterling as in the UK+ currency? Do you just mean regular treasure hunter keys? Those can be purchased via the official Runescape website. Seers headband 2 chathead.png Elessar2 (talk) 07:42, 16 July 2020 (UTC)

Lost 2 step credentials[edit source]

I can receive a new password, but can't get past 2 step login. Any methods? 18:11, 2 July 2020 (UTC)

Are you talking about on the wiki, or your Runescape account? Seers headband 2 chathead.png Elessar2 (talk) 07:44, 16 July 2020 (UTC)

npc id parameter[edit source]

In regards to the Doogle Maps project and related templates: how can I fill in the "npc id" parameter correctly? I have extensively checked related template documentation. Property:All_NPC_ID is incomplete and doesn't include any id's for NPCs I've tried to find. Undefined (talk) 10:00, 8 August 2020 (UTC)

In general, you can use MRND to search for an NPC by name (or MRID for items, MROD for objects/locations)... although some NPCs have multiple variants and it's tough to determine which corresponds to a given infobox version. However, recently a JMod was kind enough to export a CSV containing data for many (most? nearly all?) NPCs; that data was used to create this Google spreadsheet. A couple of editors (mainly User:BlackHawk) have been progressing their way through the rather lengthy list, populating data and replacing maps on the relevant article pages. MrDew (talk) 10:08, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
Thank you very much, that's perfect. Undefined (talk) 10:18, 8 August 2020 (UTC)

Password help?[edit source]


Is this a good place to get help logging into an account I haven't used since Wikia? (I didn't even know data had been migrated to this site.) - User:Zangasta, 08:29, 22 August 2020 (UTC)

I'd advise using Special:Contact for this. EDIT: Just sign in using yer Wikia password, and ye'll be prompted to change yer password after logging in Ciphrius Kane (talk) 08:33, 22 August 2020 (UTC)
Thanks a lot! I did write a request to them, detailing that I have tried what I think is my Wikia password, but I thought maybe this was a better place for it. Will send that off right away. 09:06, 22 August 2020 (UTC)

Spiritual warrior MMG[edit source]

According to Money making guide, spiritual warriors top the chart at a hourly profit of 2,630,936,000 coins. Can someone figure out why this value appears and how to fix it? Most likely caused by recent edits to the corresponding MMG. Thanks in advance. 5-x Talk 22:02, 27 August 2020 (UTC)

The issue appears to have been resolved.Seers headband 2 chathead.png Elessar2 (talk) 10:02, 29 August 2020 (UTC)

Ripping Archaeology Journal pictures?[edit source]

Well the questions is in the title. Is it possible to rip the high-detailed pictures of artefacts from the Archaeology journal and add them to the wiki? Exaldin (talk) 20:59, 30 August 2020 (UTC)

See Let me know if any are missing Mejrs (talk) 09:41, 12 September 2020 (UTC)
Wow! Really impressive work, as far as i can tell they all seem to be there. Are you planning to upload them yourself? Exaldin (talk) 20:00, 13 September 2020 (UTC)
I haven't, please go ahead :) Mejrs (talk) 00:22, 14 September 2020 (UTC)

New and confused Editing/adding New Master Clue hot/cold location[edit source]

As the title states Im confused as to the "how" of adding/editing in the location of the new master clue hot/cold location. If anyone wants to help, or even just take over i have pictures correct to the others in the guide available as well as the location etc. Yea so anyone?  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Gr1ndz (talk) on 04:51, 13 February 2021.

Hi, two things. First, you're on the wrong wiki! This wiki is for the RuneScape version of the game, while this link leads to the Old School version of the game. Second, the new hot/cold clue found on the Isle of Souls has already added to the guide last week. -- Recent uploads SpineTalkGuest book 05:01, 13 February 2021 (UTC)
