Archiving[edit source]

What happened to this getting archived weekly? I'd do it, but I always feel like I'm going to do something wrong when I do something new. Law rune.png Samberen Nature rune.png 18:23, January 19, 2014 (UTC)

Suppa chuppa sucks. Please yell at him here MolMan 18:24, January 19, 2014 (UTC)
You clear it and now I keep ending up on it. Maybe I shouldn't have said anything. Law rune.png Samberen Nature rune.png 02:20, January 23, 2014 (UTC)

Just wondering[edit source]

Is there really any point of this page? All I ever see is anons adding dumb crap to it, then once in a while it gets cleared; ad infinatum. Ozank Cx 18:38, December 29, 2014 (UTC)

It gives a ballpark idea of how legitimate entries are. It's also helpful to see, for example, someone being blocked from adding a bunch of bad entries if they finally get fake numbers past the script. MolMan 18:40, December 29, 2014 (UTC)

Slayers weekend[edit source]

Since this weekend messes with charm drop rate, the wiki might be better off blocking all submissions between 2015/05/15 and 2015/05/18 until the weekend blows over. - Primadog (talk) 19:50, May 16, 2015 (UTC)

What am I doing wrong[edit source]

I try to help and add the charms that I get from slayer tasks, and almost all of them are tagged in this Counter-Vandalism Unit page... What am I doing wrong? Is it really blocking me or is it just a log of people that add charms to the data log? X_darKnight (talk) 04:27, December 30, 2016 (UTC)

If it says disallowed, the data you're adding is too far off the norm to be accepted and is filtered out as possible vandalism. If 'History' is being sad, it is being added but is getting a bit outside the norm. What are your methods for keeping track of charm drops? how big of samples are you usually adding?

I use the charming imp and take all the charms, doing samples the size of the task, usually 100-250... So I don't know what to do =/ X_darKnight (talk) 23:15, December 30, 2016 (UTC)
The larger the charm data log already is, the more sensitive it'll be to new edits. Also, make sure you don't have things like a slayer mask, Trophy-taker's, or Dedicated slayer aura changing your task count or drops as you go. I've made that mistake in the past. Outside of that, just make sure you have larger counts to help even out any oddities. I used to write it down somewhere for a few tasks and enter them all at once.

When I review the page I make a judgment as to if the drop looks legit. I allow for more variance than the program does based on my own experience ingame, but I also consider many factors such as how careful other people may be, previous additions from that person, etc. If I think it is a possible variation, I manually add the drop to the log. If i think it is bad data tracking, I do not, and if it looks really off I often leave a message on the contributors' talk page. If I ever do not add one of yours and it is legit, talk to me.
