This way any newer editor who wants to report vandalism does so at the right place and not here.-- 17:48, September 7, 2009 (UTC)
Oh....Now I get it, thanks. --

This message isn't from me, it's from an IP who didn't know where to post.[edit source]

Is there any way that we could have an "outfit viewer" on this Wiki? I see that there are lots of calculators, and even images of people showing off different armour for that armour's wiki page. But is there any way that you guys could make a page where users select which equipment to put on a set avatar, to see what it would look like without the need to purchase the parts in game to see what they would look like together? I realise that such a project could easily consume a lot of time. But I think it would be worth the effort, because you would save a lot of people a lot of time, because they would no longer have to buy the armour/equipment just to 'test' it. Consider it as a sort of "outfit calculator" as opposed to the various exp calculators you have on this wiki. Thanks for considering my offer...

PS. I'm sorry if this isn't the right place to post this. As far as I could tell, there wasn't really a designated place to post, so I figured SOMEBODY would see it here.

Signatures[edit source]

How do I make those fancy signatures? (The the colored backgrounds, a picture, etc.) 03:14, January 16, 2010 (UTC)Superplayer08

Have a look at Help:Customising your signature. If you want to request one to be made for you, check out RS:SIG/R. --Quarenon  Talk 03:15, January 16, 2010 (UTC)

Redirect[edit source]

Has anyone noticed that uh is one of the redirects? Worst redirect name ever, IMHO. ⁓ Hello71 16:44, July 16, 2010 (UTC)

It doesn't redirect just "uh" to the page, so anyone searching for RS:UH obviously knows what they're looking for. Suppa chuppa Talk 17:20, July 16, 2010 (UTC)
Ignoring the RS:, uh seems fitting - omg im stuck with this code wat do... uhhh i'll go to RS:UH! Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 20:11, July 16, 2010 (UTC)
Also it is an abbreviation of User Help. its actually the perfect shortcut. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 13:39, August 13, 2010 (UTC)
The thing is, even typing "rs:uh" won't work. You need to type it in all caps, so it's not like someone could get there accidentally. Micha 16:29, October 23, 2010 (UTC)
Made "rs:uh" and "uh" into the redirects to RuneScape:User Help. Achievements Coelacanth0794 Talk Contribs 16:35, October 23, 2010 (UTC)
I thought shortcuts are supposed to be specifically in caps, no? Micha 16:48, October 23, 2010 (UTC)
Redirects are cheap so it doesn't matter. Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 16:52, October 23, 2010 (UTC)
Cheap??? You mean we get charged for them?!?!?!?!? Micha 17:02, October 23, 2010 (UTC)
No. They take up minimal space, so it's unimportant. HaloTalk 17:09, October 23, 2010 (UTC)
OMG... That was an attempt at humor. -.- Micha 18:22, October 23, 2010 (UTC)

Start over[edit source]

Should somebody delete all the answered stuff and "start over"? Because whenever I try to type on it, it lags.Defence-icon.png99 i fail Attack-icon.png 02:39, November 6, 2010 (UTC)

Updated with new information[edit source]

Filled it in. Editing a content page works the same way as these edit pages, except that the content pages should not be signed, and typoes on content pages should be corrected if you spot any. However if you're unsure about the spelling but have new content, providing it will still help as someone else with a better understanding of the English language could come by next and correct it.

? How-to. filter SEARCH results[edit source]

Thanks in advance for your time and directions.

Where can I find information on how-to filter the search results for the Runescape wiki ( For example, I want to find only pages with the bold certain armours:

Armour case osrsw:Armour case Armour case is a hot spot found in the costume room of a player-owned house. The cases can be used to store certain armours, provided 23 KB (574 words) - 18:09, 5 May 2019

Not with only Armour, or certain. Specifically a list of that armour (certain armours) that is “ranged” armour.

Thx. Nomisf (talk) 01:55, 30 May 2019 (UTC) Nomisf 29 May 2019 01:56 GT (game time)

You can use insource:"certain armours" to search for pages containing "certain armours" - like this. We have an extension called CirrusSearch, which provides "insource:" (amongst other things), the documentation for the extension can be viewed here (on MediaWiki's site) - Rawny (talk) 00:41, 31 May 2019 (UTC)

Add a "new" item to the wiki[edit source]

Hi, I don't know how to add new pages or content, but "Valerio's Song" also has a sheet called "Valerio's Lyrics Sheet" near Valerio. The item isn't in the wiki and can also be added to the bookcase from the player owned house.

[[File:Valerio's Lyrics sheet.jpg|thumb]]

Kaiseralex96 (talk) 03:01, 6 August 2021 (UTC)

Hey! We actually do have a page for that item. When you take it out of the bookcase, it's called lyric sheet. Only in the interface is it called "Valerio's Lyrics Sheet". This is the case for other books in the interface too; a difference between the bookcase and the item. This is mentioned on our list of books. I'll make a redirect for this case, thanks for bringing it up. ɳex undique 03:08, 6 August 2021 (UTC)
