The page looks really bad on monobook now. Please fix it or change it back. Prayer-icon.pngTyiloTalkQuest.png 11:47, April 2, 2012 (UTC)

The change was agreed upon here, so you would need consensus to overturn it. As over 99% of our viewers (guess) would use the wikia skin, we optimise our pages for them not monobook. Also, even when I go on monobook, there are still small borders around each of the sections? Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 11:55, April 2, 2012 (UTC)

Something that would be very helpfull under every item overview (members only: yes, high alch: 100, Quest item: no, etc..) would be implementig a space where someone can see if the item, upon death will be kept in inventory, respawn at death spot or lost. Example: a wicked hood, upon death cannot be picked up at deathspot, a talisman staff can. Many people would liek to be aware of what happens to items upon death.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 19:26, 9 May 2012 (UTC).

I really like this idea. Thanks for suggesting it. I'm going to add it right away. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 19:43, May 9, 2012 (UTC)

No "don't like" option in poll

There isn't an "I don't like it" option, only positive or no opinion. I don't like it because I didn't make spelling mistakes often enough for it to slow down my browsing, and even when I did it just takes me to where I get now.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 02:19, 15 May 2012 (UTC).

RE: Could you please add to the wikia the General store prices of items! As well as the purchous limit at the GE. I use the GE to buy items and then sell them at the General store. this would be very helpful for me. and the purchous limit could help me know what items to buy and trade to other player because of their higher street prices!  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 08:51, 19 June 2012 (UTC).

Auto search no longer works

Auto search no longer works, e.g. the feature that (used to) work like Google suggestions. I noticed a post about this but I couldnt find it, something about creating an account and changing a preference option. I did this but it didnt fix it.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 12:57, 6 July 2012 (UTC).

I noticed the same, it's disappointing to me. I liked to auto-option. Can I revert this (even for my personal account)? Btw pls sign. And thanks ;) . . . Yours, This user admires the Void Knights.

SOF/Solomon's Store Opinion Poll

Personally, I'm against the aspects of the SOF and the Solomon's Store that give your character real, non-cosmetic benefits in the game in exchange for more actual RL money. However, this isn't because I think it violates Jagex's own RULES - after all, is Jagex selling membership RWT? Of course not! I think its because it 1. Hurts the game, 2. Violates the PRINCIPLES that jagex used to have and 3. Is a slap in the face to all those who play Runescape loyally but are getting a disadvantage because they aren't willing to pay MORE money than they already do.

So I think there should be another section to the poll - "I'm against it because I think it hurts the game and the principles that Jagex once had" or something to that effect.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 02:26, 16 September 2012 (UTC).

Ummm you made no sense there. I think it violates Jagex' own Real-World Trading rules encompasses them going back on their own word and harming the game; if you hate it, choose that. Membership is completely different from RWT and SGS and has always been such. MolMan 02:35, September 16, 2012 (UTC)

You know it.

This game is going to die sooner and you all know it, it got destroyed by money hungry investors.

RuneScape general informations

Shouldn't the main page have at least one link to the RuneScape page? 'cause you know I never heard of this game before, and casually ended on this wiki, but it's weird to have links to all kind of monsters, items and dungeons pages, and not being able to know what this game's about!--Kombatgod (talk) 16:28, October 24, 2012 (UTC)

Good point. I'd do it now, but the only obvious mention of just "RuneScape" seems to be in text that is part of an image, which I can't really change. If someone can think of a place to put a link to RuneScape on the Main Page without screwing it up, please do. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 14:48, November 4, 2012 (UTC)
No idea how you say there's not one. Down at the bottom where it states copyright to runescape and jagex, it as a link to them.

When I heard about RuneScape for the first time I tought it would be a Viking / Asatru style game. But instead of heathen temples there are churches and there are no rune symbols added on signs or flags. Wouldn't that be a good idea? Odin, Thor, Tyr, Freya and other gods would be happy with that. - 23:35, December 29, 2013 (UTC)

Change back the background

OK, its been a good 2013, but I think its time to put back the old background. God of the Forge (talk) 15:17, 12 January 2013 (UTC)

Traditionally the background stays as long as the event (christmas, easter or halloween) is available in-game. I can't imagine the event will be around for much longer. cqm 15:23, 12 Jan 2013 (UTC) (UTC)

Oldschool Runescape

I was wondering if everyone in the community could help and make a part of this wikia dedicated to the new oldschoolrunescape that jagex has released, so it would be interesting if we could have information on this site regarding oldschoolrunescape so that if people needed it, just like many people use this page to get information, they would be able to do so. Bobin Hood 2:27, February 27, 2013 (UTC)

I think it would be a good idea to feature a link to the old school wiki on the page as this would help people looking for information on that version of the game of which players make up about 40% of the community.Bandos godsword.pngIgnis438Bandos godsword.png 11:37, March 2, 2013 (UTC)

I'd like to suggest an idea for the opinion poll. I believe the question "Which God Emissary do you support?", because it would show which factions are most/least popular ! :o Italay90 (talk) 14:49, May 31, 2013 (UTC)

New section on the homepage

I'm not sure if this has been discussed before, but I think it would be a good idea to include a section on the homepage for Runescape wikia Sister Sites, such as the RS players wiki, the '07 Oldschool wiki, and the Runescape Classic Wiki. That way all these sites will be connected in a way and people will know about them. I've seen this done with some other wiki's and I thought maybe it would be a good idea on this one.

Talkheader Template

Hello, Just browsing this wikia and have a question about the Talkheader Template. How do you get it to show up on every Talk page? I've tried to figure it out on my own, but it looks like I need some help. Is it something that's done manually, or automatically somehow? I'm interested in implementing it on [[w:c:brightwoodadventures|Brightwood Adventures]] wikia. Actually, I've found quite a few things on here that I'll be doing on that site. I'll be sure to reference this wikia with the credit for everything I copy and customize. I always give credit where credit is due, and the work y'all have done on this wikia is spectacular. Thanks for your time! P.S. I am putting the four tildes, but it keeps saying they're not there. In case someone needs to know. CoolBurnMtW ([[w:c:brightwoodadventures:Message Wall:CoolBurnMtW|Wall]]) 22:52, July 31, 2014 (UTC)

AFAIK it is done manually.   az talk   22:57, July 31, 2014 (UTC)
According to MediaWiki:common.js, it looks like it is done automatically when someone hits the Save Page button on the Talk Page for the first time. I decided to look at System Messages and do a Ctrl+F on the Modified messages to search for Talkheader. Thanks for responding. I'll be sure to give the credit to this wikia if I decide to implement on mine. Thanks again. CoolBurnMtW ([[w:c:brightwoodadventures:Message Wall:CoolBurnMtW|Wall]]) 23:09, July 31, 2014 (UTC)
It generally is taken care of manually. The automated version only works if people "Add topic" to a talk page (and this is the first topic). It doesn't work if they use the drop down menu and edit the page directly. The automatically added talkheader also ends up in odd places, such as below the section header or immediately in front of the text (without even a space or new line). All in all, it's a manual job to make sure they're present, properly. IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 04:16, August 1, 2014 (UTC)
That's helpful. Thanks very much for the info. I appreciate it, greatly. Edit: Sorry, I just thought of something else. Is the common.js file the only thing needed to be added to another wikia for this to work properly? Thanks, again.

~Just wondering why this poll has disappeared from the previous polls, and if we are getting the brown theme back, seems people prefer it. Dojorune (talk) 00:40, December 10, 2014 (UTC)

There was ample time to give opinions before the change. We're not going back. MolMan 00:44, December 10, 2014 (UTC)
Apologies, but as i am not an active member on the forums, and as such, had missed the oppritunity to voice my opinion before the change was implemented (and it seems i am not the only one who is in the same situation). The day that the change was made, i had attempted to contact someone about such (Coelacanth0794) , to help voice my opinion, as i was unable to find a subsequent "reaction poll" to the change, aside from the one shown above. Following that, i had seen the poll mentioned above appear, and had thought that it was to be the "reaction poll" that would effect the changes made, This ended up giving me some false hope of a change being made, and as a result, i did not persue the topic in a more timely manner.
(I waited untill the previous poll ended to see if a change would be made, thus the "late opinion").
I feel that the previous "choose a theme" poll was not as commonly known to a large percentage of wiki users, and as a result, may not have accurately represented the majority opinion, and am asking that there be a revisit on the option, as there seems to not have been a forum post follow-up (Had there been, i would have voiced my opinion there, or on the original poll, had it not been locked the moment the change was enacted).
(edit/addition: the poll was worded in an odd way: people were asked to give the number of the theme they wished, and the current theme option was not given a "theme number", and may have resulted in some people believing that it was not a valid option "please use Support Theme #")
Dojorune (talk) 02:50, December 10, 2014 (UTC)
It was advertised the whole time on the main page. If you really like the old theme, you can always recreate it yourself in your personal CSS file. The forum for it got the best coverage it could have, including an invasive little bubble that appeared to everyone that looked at the wiki. I think you oughta just accept that you missed your opportunity. MolMan 03:07, December 10, 2014 (UTC)
Thank you for the information on the personal css file, you are the first person that has mentioned this as a possible fix, andi must say, i am glad you have shown me this. Dojorune (talk) 03:15, December 10, 2014 (UTC)

Wikia Gaming Footer

I there a reason for the wiki to not include the Wikia Gaming Footer template in the main page? If visual design was one of those reasons, it no longer is as a wikia template which just contains plain text with the list of wikis can be added, instead of the common one with its own box.

Page containing all "Additional rewards" and "daily collections"., w

Hello. I was wondering if it would be a good idea to make a page containing all additional rewards that we get after specific content like quests, D&D's, other content...

For example, Dishonour among thieves has hidden reward chests and additional rewards post-quest. Another example is Myths of the White Lands, which gives us more hidden rewards.

The reason I'm asking this is because that is a LOT of xp strewn through out the game, and there is no page that collects all these additional and hidden rewards. I don't know the total exp from this, but some go up to 50K.

Another page is daily collections. Things we can gather daily or do daily, for example D&D's and task rewards. I'd love to have this page especially as it gives me a to-do list for runescape everyday.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Derigar2 (talk) on 5:14, February 27, 2015 (UTC).

Are you thinking of a page like Post-quest rewards? IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 15:55, February 27, 2015 (UTC)

Any chance of changing the current blinding blue/white theme? It's really bad on mine and maybe a lot of other peoples eyes? Would be a huge plus to have an option for a dark theme for people with eye problems or just for night time viewing in general. 02:22, October 25, 2015 (UTC)

If you have an account, you can make your own custom css file and make the theme however you like. MolMan 02:37, October 25, 2015 (UTC)

Runescape on the homepage

I find it unusual that RuneScape isn't linked anywhere on the homepage of this wiki. The homepage is the first thing a new visitor looks at when visiting this website, it should only make sense that the game itself is linked to help someone begin their research. My recommendation is to link RuneScape where it says "The wiki devoted to RuneScape that anyone can edit". TheDethklokGuy (talk) 00:23, January 19, 2016 (UTC)

I'm kinda iffy on this. Having a link there would not look as good imo. Also if you're here, you already know what RuneScape is. svco4bY.png3Gf5N2F.png 00:33, January 19, 2016 (UTC)

I've started to notice that a lot of missing fixes to the Runescape game of certain items/mechanics are not immediately edited to the wikia. They take probably weeks before someone posts one up. I'm not a full-time editor but I do edit some patch note changes to the wikia. I'm just wondering, how many of you read the weekly patch notes and update it accordingly to the wikia?

Error in Eadgar's Ruse Quest

Quest states to right click a pineapple and select "slice" to get chunks. Slicing the pineapple does NOT give chunks. You must use a knife on the pineapple and select "dice" to get the chunks. Redirwol (talk) 04:59, 28 May 2019 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for reporting this. I've updated the pineapple chunks page so that it refers to dicing rather than slicing. I'm guessing you were seeing "slice" when hovering over "pineapple chunks" on the Eadgar's Ruse page, the preview box that appears there gets its content from the pineapple chunks page. It is cached though, so it may take a little while for it to automatically update.
