GEBot[edit | edit source]

GEBot was created by Nightgunner5 in an attempt to have GEMW prices update more frequently. It has evolved from a simple script loop to a very intelligent robot. However, the robustness came at a cost, causing GEBot to slow down considerably, doubling the execution time.

Whenever GEBot runs, the core function is a simple loop:

  1. Find an old item price.
  2. Retrieve an up-to-date price for the item.
  3. Update the GEMW page for the item.

However, GEBot has expanded - there are more pieces to the puzzle.

Equalizer (Deprecated)[edit | edit source]

GEBot used to have a function known as "Equalizer", which would force GEBot to update at least 1/28 of the items in the GEMW. However, this was found to be pointless, and the minimum was lowered to 1/56 before being completely removed.

MarketBot[edit | edit source]

MarketBot was originally written in C# by Supertech1. It keeps track of every item in the Grand Exchange database, storing their name, examine information, and price, along with a cross-reference to a Wiki page. It runs before GEBot's core, but is planned to be incorporated directly into GEBot in version 2.0.

ADD[edit | edit source]

If an item does not exist in the wiki, but does in the grand exchange database, ADD will insert it. However, if the item shares a name with another, ADD can do nothing.

Cleanup[edit | edit source]

Shortly after MarketBot was implemented, the problems that would occur when Jagex would add items to the game were discovered. MarketBot remembers if an item doesn't exist, and will mark up to 200 consecutive items as nonexistent. However, if Jagex were to add an item with an ID that was marked as not being an item, MarketBot would never know! Cleanup simply deletes as many consecutive "nonexist" entries from the database as there are at the end.

GEBot 2.0[edit | edit source]

The original GEBot was written in PHP, but GEBot 2.0 will be written in C#, incorporating MarketBot's functionality and threaded processing directly into GEBot, greatly reducing the time it spends running.

GEMH Images[edit | edit source]

You'll need Firefox and Greasemonkey, then you can just go to and Grand Exchange Market History images just like the one below this text will appear on the Exchange pages!

If you use this script, please put {{User:Nightgunner5/User_uses_GEMH_images|VERSION NUMBER}} in your userpage. Thanks!

Flax into Bowstring[edit | edit source]

  • It takes me 88 seconds to turn a load of flax into bowstring in Lumbridge, an average of 3.1428571428571428571428571428571... seconds per flax.
  • Flax costs 138 coins, and bowstring sells for 530 coins.
  • In one inventory of turning flax into bowstring, I make a profit of 10976 coins in 88 seconds, or 124.72727272727 coins per second.
  • To get a thousand coins, it would take me 8.0174927113703 seconds.
    • Ten thousand coins: 80.174927113703 seconds or 1.3362487852284 minutes.
    • One hundred thousand coins: 801.74927113703 seconds or 13.362487852284 minutes.
    • One million coins: 8017.4927113703 seconds, 133.62487852284 minutes, 22.27081308714 hours, or 0.92795054529748 days of constant RuneScape.

Flax: Round two[edit | edit source]

  • In Neitiznot, it only takes me 75 seconds for a round trip of flax into bowstring action. This lowers my average to 2.6785714285714285714285714285714... seconds per flax.
  • Flax costs 138 coins, and bowstring sells for 530 coins.
  • In one inventory of turning flax into bowstring, I make a profit of 10976 coins in 75 seconds, or 146.34666666667 coins per second.
  • To get a thousand coins, it would take me 6.8330903790087 seconds.
    • Ten thousand coins: 68.330903790087 seconds or 1.1388483965015 minutes.
    • One hundred thousand coins: 683.30903790087 seconds or 11.388483965015 minutes.

  • I make an additional profit of 21.619393939394 coins per second by going to Neitiznot!

You're serious?[edit | edit source]

  • I'll need to spin 837,045 flax into bowstring to get 99 crafting. That seems a little far off, so I'll try for 70 crafting first. That's only 17,258 flax.
  • This will take me until Wednesday, December 8th, 2021 at 3:56 pm, based on my average of 800 flax per day.
  • By getting to level 70 crafting by spinning flax bought from the grand exchange into bowstring and selling it, both at market price, I will have earned a solid profit of 6,765,136 coins. That's over 6.7M! Unfortunately, it will take me all year. :(
  • I will be earning an average of 313,600 coins per day.

A love for transparency[edit | edit source]

I like adding transparency to monster images on the RuneScape wiki. I especially like to do big images, like the God Wars Dungeon bosses and monsters that have shadows.

Tips for taking good pictures of RuneScape monsters[edit | edit source]

  • Try to take the picture of the front side of it, as big as you can without cutting off any part of it or being in combat with it.
  • Crop the picture, but don't cut off any part of the monster or leave large unnecessary areas of the RuneScape interface.
  • Save as PNG, never JPEG. If you see any images on the RuneScape wiki with JPEG file extensions, mime types, or JPEG-like qualities, add the {{jpeg}} tag to the image's page. When someone re-uploads the image in the PNG format, change the {{jpeg}} tag to the {{d}} tag.
  • If you're looking for something to take a picture of, look in the JPEG category.
  • If you're interested in adding transparency, go to my instructions on adding transparency.

RuneScape pet peeves[edit | edit source]

  • The game goes through an extremely intense redesign, and my character still has no mouth and blacked out eyes.
  • My armor shows through my cape.
  • Shadows of people and NPCs don't fall to the side like shadows from scenery.
  • The mess in my bank.
  • Construction and Summoning cost too much.
  • The first thing I died against was a cow, back when I didn't know that banks existed and thought that all armor was for rich people.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • I have 3 maging outfits (Lunar, Moonclan, and Splitbark) and only one for each of the other two combat classes, even though I don't mage as much as I range or melee.
  • I once made 328 Meat pies and gave them to a friend. As far as I know, they still have all of them.
  • When I first saw people spamming with the private chat button, I wondered why and how they logged in and out so much.
  • I put off finishing the Monkey Madness quest for a few months because I thought I would need a cannon to kill the demon. I later killed it without one.
  • I wondered why people would waste so many law runes when I first saw them teleporting to the place they were already in.
  • I once said that I was poor and needed money and someone walked up to me and gave me a gold-trimmed blue dragonhide body and told me to sell it, but I couldn't sell it until the grand exchange came out because it was ugly and nobody wanted it.
  • Ever since the Lumbridge tutors were released, I wondered why the melee and range tutors gave nontradable alternatives to the weakest items for the skill but the mage tutor gave out the real thing.
  • About 350 million willow logs have been sold on the Grand Exchange, although nobody I know has been able to successfully sell any. This means that 167300000000 coins have been spent on one worthless item alone!
