IP block[edit source]

Hi.  :-) Can I query a block you issued to the anonymous user He made an edit to Kurask, which may well be inaccurate, and may even be considered vandalism, but it is (as far as I can tell) the only detrimental edit this user has made. The user block policy says: "Blocks should generally not be used against isolated incidents of vandalism", and it seems like this should apply in this case. A three-day block with account-creation disabled would be very frustrating for someone who may be new to the wiki and experimenting with how it works. There is now a note on the talk page about this alleged new drop, and I wonder whether this edit was made in good faith, and (whilst further discussion may well be warranted before it is added to the article) maybe it doesn't deserve a block, even temporarily. Anyway, just wanted to mention it in case you have knowledge of this user that I don't, or motivation that I have missed.  :-) Leevclarke talk Max_logo_mini.png bulldog_puppy.png 15:17, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

The fact that it is unconfirmed as a drop, and that it is being discussed on the article's talk page, is grounds for it not being added to the article yet, I agree with that. However, the edit could well have been made in good faith, and I think it would have been a better approach in the first instance to change the article back, and post on the user's talk page to explain why. Even if it is vandalism, it's still an isolated incident, and the fact remains that the policy says blocks should generally not be used against isolated incidents of vandalism. I don't see why this should be considered an exception that warrants a block, but if I've missed something, or if I am misinterpreting the policy, let me know.  ;-) Leevclarke talk Max_logo_mini.png bulldog_puppy.png 02:27, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

Admin query[edit source]

Hi, I was just wondering about a few points about administrator rights (I am asking you as you are an admin):

  • What are the main uses of adminship?
  • What can admins do and not do?
  • What requirements are there to be an admin?

"Wanteds"[edit source]

Any reason why you are creating so-called "Wanted" articles which are not being linked to?   az talk   07:08, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

I don't think capitalised variations of articles is necessary. "A redirect is a page created specifically to take a searcher straight to another article, even without the accurate name." People rarely type using capital cases.. they usually type in lower-case variations in the Search box. And articles like "Cave Bug (Large)" and "Cave Bug (Small)" are not necessary either, as the names are not common.

See RuneScape:Redirecting for more information.  az talk   07:18, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

If we see lots of redlinks caused by capitalisation, we should change the links to point to the correct article. By creating additional redirect pages, we are actually encouraging links to the redirect pages rather than the actual pages.

This is something I picked up from Wikipedia:Redirect:

Other capitalisations, to ensure that "Go" to a mixed-capitalisation article title is case-insensitive

Adding a redirect for mixed-capitalisation article titles (e.g., Isle of Wight) allows going to these articles to be case-insensitive. For example, without the redirect Isle of wight going to "Isle Of wight" or any capitalisation other than exactly 'Isle of Wight' would not find the article Isle of Wight.

Why: Articles whose titles contain mixed-capitalisation words (not all initial caps, or not all lower case except the first word) are found only via an exact case match. (Articles, including redirects, whose titles are either all initial caps or only first word capitalised are found via "Go" using a case-insensitive match.)

Note: Related redirects are needed only if the article title has two or more words and words following the first have different capitalisations. They are not needed, for example, for proper names which are all initial caps.


  • "Natural Selection" redirects to "Natural selection"
  • Redirect "Vice chancellor of austria" to "Vice-Chancellor of Austria" is needed because the Go search is case-sensitive for mixed-caps titles. Adding this redirect allows the article to be found when a user enters "vice chancellor of austria" or "vice chancellor of Austria" as a Go search.
  • No redirect to "Francis Ford Coppola" is needed because the "Go" command is case-insensitive for an article whose title is all initial caps. Any capitalisation (e.g. "francis fOrD CoPPola") entered as a "Go" will find the article.

Any thoughts? I think we should include this into RuneScape:Redirecting.   az talk   07:47, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

Hmm... Yew Grove is a special case. I'm neutral on that part.   az talk   07:58, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

Cross-namespace redirects has been controversial in Wikipedia for several reasons. See Wikipedia:Cross-namespace redirects to see some of the pros and cons of this type of redirects. Personally, I feel that User and RuneScape namespaces should be separate from the Main space, and not redirect to each other, except in Shortcuts.
Yeah. CNR should be allowed in special cases only.   az talk   08:13, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

Dragon platebody...[edit source]

If you've been around W2 or, have any friends, you would know the prices of the platebody are shooting down. I've had mine on lowest price for 16 hours now and it even dropped to lowest of 11.5 yesterday night. People have bought over 5-6 platebodies and now they're stuck with them. Friends of mine have even asked if I want to buy one. Large evidences that the plate is failing on the market. Now why not undo your edit because that was silly -- Deus35

Umm, silly? Sorry, but your theory for the price drops is not fact, just a theory. There could be many other causes such as the availability of cheaper yet good armour (Bandos chestplate). In the wiki, we aim for the information in articles to be as accurate as possible. Regards, C.ChiamTalk 13:22, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
Use something like a source, say's Grand Exchange watcher. Now take what you've said Bandos chestplate and compare it with Dragon platebody and you'll see that Bandos chestplate has rose, and that it would not be the cheaper alternative. Please, if your talking about facts, get yours straight first. Amulet of fury detail.pngDeus35Strength cape (t).png 13:24, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
With no proof, it's best to leave it out. Users may check the price history of the Dragon Platebody on the Exchange:Dragon platebody article history if they wish to. Karlis (talk) (contribs) 13:27, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
Sorry, I don't check prices of items everyday. The last time I checked the price of a Dragon platebody, it had a higher value than the Bandos chestplate. Also, fact remains that there is no real evidence for this claim. C.ChiamTalk 13:31, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
If you cannot see the evidence leading to my point, please, stop skipping school and take some marketing related classes. :) Love, Amulet of fury detail.pngDeus35Strength cape (t).png 17:20, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
I'm not even going to bother with you. What makes you think I even skip school? I think you're being very immature. C.ChiamTalk 07:16, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
Because, you know nothing about the marketing downfall things are occuring in the grand exchange, and then you try and insult me? As I said in my beginning post(s), get your facts straight, I can pretty much assume you skip school because you are blind to everything. I know Dragon platebody is going down in price because in world two, they were selling for ten million coins, that's lower than the lowest max I know of right now. I sold mine for 11.5 overnight, wow...shouldn't things be quicker than that? Yes. Now don't bother replying unless you can remain on your footing, which you do not currently have. Love, Amulet of fury detail.pngDeus35Strength cape (t).png 12:37, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
I try and insult you? I said that I thought you were being very immature. You have said that my actions are silly and that I skip school (which implies that I'm dumb). How does not knowing the prices of items in-game equate to me being dumb? The basis of my argument is that you do not have any proof. There could be various causes. Unless you actually have a log of all the dragon platebodies in the game or something like that, nothing your saying regarding the Dragon platebody can actually be taken as fact. C.ChiamTalk 12:45, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
Nice try, but no. You can assume basing off world two that the market of them are going down. You a scientific study, maybe? All I'm saying is that if you can't see it, then go look for yourself in the rush hour of world two. Go to the armor section of the wall in the grand exchange and look at the people selling for under ther minimum price in the grand exchange. This is a fact, stop saying it's not. Amulet of fury detail.pngDeus35Strength cape (t).png 13:00, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
You just answered your own argument. You can assume. Assumption does not equate to fact. If you want to continue this, I will bring another admin in to offer their opinions on the matter. C.ChiamTalk 13:42, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
Do so. Assumtions can be fact if there's enough material out there, which there is. Amulet of fury detail.pngDeus35Strength cape (t).png 17:20, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
Dues, first off man, fix your signature please. It has to be in a template per a recent discussion on the Yew Grove. As far as the facts go, your basing your off your personal experiences and that of some people you know. While that is indeed a good starting point to begin making possible assumptions, it is nowhere yet near conclusive. This could very well be the work of some panic sellers unable to unload their item. Supply vs demand and all that, right? World 2 is very often almost a separate entity with its own odd market fluctuations that bear little resemblance to the other 130 worlds of RS (or whatever the number is). Not always or lots, just often. And since the only information you have is obtained from this odd little (yet very interesting) world, it is certainly not enough to base a piece of information on in the article. As Caleb was saying, we strive for precise data when ever possible. The reasons behind what is happening we leave to the readers to speculate. On another fansite you may well include that, while here many of us go around and clean it off whenever we find it. Encyclopedic nature of the wiki you see. Keep that in mind, it is what we do certain things a certain way. Cheers to you then. --Degenret01 13:25, 2 April 2009 (UTC)
Wow. Really? I thought that enough evidence is that now the price is under 11 million coins. Anyone with a brain can tell that from going from 13 million to under 11 million could tell that it is going down hard. That is exactly what I was trying to put in. If you seriously can't see my point, please stop posting and go on your way, because it's inevitable that you can try and resist my point any further. The lowest price on the D plate is now 10 million coins exactly.. Just after the update, the street price was 30 million coins, and the GE price peaked at around 13.4. It then roller-costered down to about the price it is now, and it might even go under 10 million coins. There is hope for a recovery though, there always is with high level items.

Hey Caleb, I saw that you deleted the "RuneScape:Yew Grove/Forum archives/New logo?" redirect that was created went I moved the page. That did however leave a hanging link from Forum:Logo. Could you update that link (I can't, as it's locked) to say "Forum:Forum archives/New logo?" instead of the old "RuneScape:Yew Grove/Forum archives/New logo?".

RE: Wanted FAQ's[edit source]

I was just trying to help lay the framework for a project that I know is underway.

Plus, I think that it clears the list for legitimate wanted pages, link of articles that users would like to see in the wiki. Just trying to be helpful.

Login into my favorite source of RS information, I was happy to see Dragon ( wats his name again??) watever, had won the Usership of the Month. And I was immediately checking on the next months candidates. I was happy to see you had been nominated, as you have been very friendly to me in the past, and was going to proceed on voting for you when a flashback crossed my mind. When you left a message on my user page or mail inbox or watever accusing me of "self-advertising" (WTF) on a post of mine, i didnt really paid attention as i was busy doing a quest, but now I go and check the Firemaking guide to see that my post, MY EFFORT has been utterly erased. I put dedication and a lot of thinking to each of my posts. I would have appreciated you to edit the parts you though where wrong, but no, you simply erased it all. I dont need a ... site to get some ... noob to cut logs so I can burn them!! My, RS is filled with noobs!!. All I did was to post an example of the way I do it so the ppl would understand it better, but not self-advertising, my you sound like... a noob as to not say something...rude. I am deeply upset, but I must let you know that Ill still vote for you as I think you are a very important person to whom everybody looks forward to, including me. But dont erase other peoples work as if it were a piece of dung, be kind enough to let us know the problem so as not to commit it again and fGs, edit it!.
