Profanity Filter[edit source]

IP mentioned 111.222.333.444 won't be filtered because one of its' digits contains a 3 digit number which is higher than 255, thus it's impossible for that number to be an IP.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 5.20.165.126 (talk) on 02:39, August 12, 2013.

Merge[edit source]

I think that All (chat interface), Game (chat interface), Public chat, Private chat, Trade, and Assist should be moved here, especially the chat interfaces. Anyone typing in "Assist" would be looking for the Assist system. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 16:42, 28 June 2008 (UTC)

I agree. It should just be one big article about all the chat features. --Rollback crown.svg Spencer (Talk | Edits | Contribs) 16:49, 28 June 2008 (UTC)
They're all part of the same interface, I see no need for them all to be divided into different articles. 16:52, 28 June 2008 (UTC)
I will gladly combine them all this weekend and could put in new pictures of the full screen interface, if there are no objections of course.. Just let me know when I can and I'll take care of it. =D Don't know how long we have to "Discuss" before we do what is going to be done anyways. =\

Just to be clear these are all parts of one interface. Yes the interface needs its own article since it is more than the sum of its parts. But the question remains, do the individual parts warrant their own articles? When these were created i'm sure the author had some idea of the granularity of what was being created, as such the articles should definitely refer to the "mothership" article, however i often wonder what a new user staring at the interface for the first time wonders and thinks when staring at the individual buttons. I myself might look at the button named "All", click the button and see no virtual effect, and possibly search this wiki for the word "All" since that is the only real descriptor I would have of the button at the time i was pondering it's function. Granted this is only one example of why a user might search for something ambiguous like "All". Yes most people would intuitively figure it out, but there is always the exception to the rule. ~kytti khat 17:13, 4 July 2008 (UTC)
Perhaps, though could the pages not just be redirects to the main article? That way new players searching for "All" or "Chat" or "private chat" could be directed to a page that would explain it all rather than just one small piece. Karlis (talk) (contribs) 04:08, 5 July 2008 (UTC)
That's what I was thinking, except private chat is probably important enough to have its own article (more than All, anyway) and that it could all redirect to Chat. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 23:48, 5 July 2008 (UTC)
Well once I get the go-ahead from an admin, I'll work on it. =D Karlis (talk) (contribs) 03:36, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
Articles should never be thought of as dead-ends. Just because they end up at a short article with a brief explanation does not mean they would just sit there and ignore the obvious (as it should be) link to the main article as i had originally suggested. If all small articles were automatically just redirected to their corresponding main article then we could eliminate all quest item related articles and just redirect those. If the concern is the length of the article name then No should redirected into Emote along with all other emotes, which i do not think is a good idea at all. ~kytti khat 12:33, 20 July 2008 (UTC)
Kytti, just look at All (chat interface). Who would care or not know about that part of RuneScape anyway? All the interface buttons I have listed are the same, except for the names of the interfaces in them. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 15:37, 20 July 2008 (UTC)
Oh, I also think Clan Chat buttonClan (chat interface) 18:46, 16 August 2008 (UTC) should be moved here too. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 20:41, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

I have to disagree. I believe that the articles should stay separated. If they merge the article will be too long. If the articles stay separated the ideas and messages would get across easier and more efficient. --Rune crossbow.png Hess36talk Ancient staff.png 04:55, 17 August 2008 (UTC)

I don't think those articles should be merged, however they all refer to parts of the chat interface and not to this disambigulation. ~kytti khat 05:29, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

Gump 03:50, 16 October 2008 (UTC) Well either way, I do believe that typing in 'Assist' in the search should lead to either the Assist system or the chat article. I wound up here after searching for the assist system. Gump 03:50, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

I don't know if I reported a player right[edit source]

I was helping newer players and I showed one how to make your words color full and wave and all that and when I was dune he asked me out. That really creeped me out! I meen how can we "go out" if he/she dose not know who I am what m,y gender is or if I can date I meen what if I'm 5 and my perant/garden is standing over waking me. So I wanted to report him because I not old enuff 2 1 like boys and 2 HE KNOWS WHO I AM!!!!! and I don't know who he is. and I was asked out in the really world about 3 days ago! And that boy he was creepy! I reported him underdisruptive behaver. It could be others 2.

I will be checking 3 times a day 9:30 6/23/09

Its more of the fact that You reported him jagex looks at it and they may say oh this is under thhe wrong category but hey this still should have been reported Manofflames6 16:41, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

Turning Free Chat On[edit source]

Hi, my brother plays this game and he can't use free chat, only quick chat. How can you access free chat? ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk)☆ 06:21, April 8, 2010 (UTC)

I think you're required to enter your date of birth when you start an account, and if you are under a certain age (13?) you're only allowed to use quickchat - see the last line here. Also if you log into worlds 160 or 161, you can only use quickchat. Stewbasic 03:20, April 22, 2010 (UTC)

Chat[edit source]

how do you guys put accent marks on letters, I didn't see the how-to for that. Extreme133 02:47, June 23, 2010 (UTC)

That's not to do with the runescape client, it's to do with how you enter accented characters on your system. On windows you should turn on numlock, hold down alt, type an ascii code on your numpad and then release alt; see here for more details.

You sure screwed that up[edit source]

I saw a person who's name refered to gender parts and I tried to report him under offensive account name but it said he must have talked recently. It was stupid. I mean it's their account name not what they said!

We are not Jagex. If you have a complaint that you would like to tell Jagex, please do so on the official RuneScape forums. ~MuzTalk 02:20, July 14, 2010 (UTC)

I left this saying it was redundant, not complaining you know.

Correction[edit source]

When it talks about the Report Abuse feature, under Guidelines, bullet point 2, it says "A player can only be reported if they have spoken or traded within the last 60 seconds. This is to prevent someone from accidentally misspelling a rule-breakers name and getting banned for false reporting. When reporting 2 or more abuses under 60 seconds the next message shows up: "You already sent an abuse report under 60 secs ago! Do not abuse this system!""

In the main Report Abuse section: "The sent report includes a log of all chat, trades and other actions performed by the reporting player and the player being reported. Currently, at least sixty seconds must elapse between reports from the same player."

This and the second half of the second bullet point (from "When reporting 2 or more...") should be combined. Also, some rules can by reported for even without a recent trade or chat. One example (Maybe the only one, idk) is "Macroing or use of bots".

different report abuse screen in german[edit source]

Anyone else noticed that the "report abuse" screen in german is different from the english one? It allows you to view any recent chat and click on someone's name to report them. However it does not allow you to report anyone manually.Sundays211 01:41, January 17, 2011 (UTC)

Yeah I also noticed that maybe someone should get a pic of it 10 years of ed 23:16, September 4, 2011 (UTC)

I did, at some point. Though others though it wasn't notable Sundays211 05:01, September 5, 2011 (UTC)

Filter option[edit source]

So I discovered today that even if the chat filter is off, some words, or rather, abbreviations, are still censored. I don't want to name any specific ones, but is this worth noting? Triforce 1415:19, February 16, 2011 (UTC)


And words or phrases that are to do with website addresses (ie www, .com, etc) are filtered no matter what your filter is set to.Sundays211 02:06, February 23, 2011 (UTC)

Should a page be created for server wide announcements? It seems like the kinda thing that could use its own. Discussing it here because this is the only page I can find information on them.The Mol Man 14:04, May 6, 2012 (UTC)

Can't Talk![edit source]

Every time i try to type nothings appears! I'm not on a QC world, my keyboard is working,I'm not muted, and what's more i can't see other people messages unless they're QC! I'm so frustrated and need help. Does anyone know what's wrong?

P.S i can't submit a bug report or talk on forums (dont ask why).
