RuneScape talk:Userboxes/Miscellaneous

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

This talk page is for discussing the RuneScape:Userboxes/Miscellaneous page.

Shouldn't the user boxes be pretty much Runescape or gamer or wiki related? Speaking specifically of the OJ boxes, I really don't think they belong here. Primarily for the fact that many people on both sides of that issue can still become quite heated. So let's leave the Runescape wikia something that will not provoke heated discussions....unless its about Runescape.--Degenret01 18:25, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

Personally, I don't think politcal views or opinions, and non-game or entertainment related boxes belong at all. I am going to take a guess and say that more than half of the people who make userpages were too young to actively follow and comprehend the OJ case as it was. Even if that is not the case, I still agree that it doesn't belong. It's funny, I silently wondered the purpose of those boxes when I made my userpage yesterday. Ironic it comes up the next day in a controversy. Karlis 18:54, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
While I did add them back earlier, I did it because I thought someone was vandalizing, not because they were offended. However, the userboxes were merely removed from this list, yet they Template:User doubts OJ|still Template:User trusts OJ|exist. If you really want to stop people from seeing them, mark them for deletion. Liferune.pngbufar(talk)Death rune.png 04:01, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
Not sure it would really be offensive, I guess it would just be removing a potential arguement. I understand how some people can get upset or extremely defensive or heated over controversial subjects. I would hate to see two or three people banned from the wiki because of an arguement over something such as this. It may be comical to say "OJ did it!" but there are many people who have strong views and are sure to let other people know. i personally don't know how long those boxes have been around, and it doesn't seem anybody has been upset with them so far, so I suppose I could argue both sides. But my final arguement would be that they aren't game or entertainment related at all, therefor kind of pointless. =\ Karlis 13:44, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Idea![edit source]

We already have user loves dogs and user loves cats, Since we have numerous great players on this wiki i propose this.We make a user loves (Enter summoning pet e.g dragon) Ancient staff.png Santairo talk Lunar staff.png 13:10, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

Against the stronghold of security and rules[edit source]


K This user plays RuneScape on Kongregate.

should be removed because it is against the advise in the stronghold of security ("You should only ever enter your password on and"). It also breaks rule 7:

"It must not bypass the normal navigation of our website for users wishing to reach the game worlds. The software should initially only point at the front page of our websites, and should require the user to navigate through the website normally to reach the game worlds. The software must not contain or acquire direct links to our "Select a world" page, or to our game world pages, or to the applet." From clause 8

Userboxs[edit source]

Why not we add this one?

I need help removing all those Userboxes for Tears of Guthix Minigame. I am no expert on userboxes but I feel there is a uselessbox for every skill and I don't know how to fix it. You don't have to reply, just fix the problem immediately, if you so desire. Also I am noticing that the Miscellanous page is growing too large. There are two solutions.

  • Maybe we can delete a few and discuss about it.
  • or we can create a new category on the at Runescape:Userboxes.

Hmm what you think? 89mch 09:04, January 15, 2010 (UTC) I've noticed that a lot of userboxes with a ton of options have the options included as an appendix on the template page itself, with a link on the page saying "See also Template:Userbox/familiar" for example. Perhaps something like that could be done here? I'll be happy to cull the ToG list to the two basic examples, seeing as I made them in the first place.

Hmm well I posted in the talk for Userboxes (not miscellaneous) yesterday about making a new page for minigame userboxes, bc I made some Barbarian Assault ones but had to put them in Miscellaneous as there was no other page it belonged to. Just wondering whether it was a good idea to make a new page for them, there are plenty of minigame userboxes floating around with no home.
