IP block[edit source]

Unfair block on IP address We are not all vandals here, especially not myself and LIve2kill26. We are a school and it is obvious that we will have vandals. Please unblock the IP so that non-vandals such as myself and Live2kill26 can continue to edit the wiki in a safe way.

Thats great, thanks for unblocking him. Sorry to persist but could you maybe unblock Liive2kill26 (they are twins with separate accounts, note the 2 "i"s please). I know of the user Jam08jam, but he left the school a few months ago. No more vandalism from him from this IP.

Regards and thank you,

Sorry about the Liive2kill26 thing. Must have been a computer glitch which stopped him from editing. Once again I can assure you that there will be no more vandalism from the likes of Jam08jam and Poo Man.

See you,

MeleeOwner the Legend!!Talk to the Legend!Bring it, noobs!!

I recently read my talkpage and saw that you thought it was unwise to unblock the IP.As we are a school and bound to have vandals, I agree with that decision. Just don't allow any more users except the ones already unblocked, or there will probably be more vandalism. Keep it to me and the Li(i)ve2kill26 twins.

MeleeOwner the Legend!!Talk to the Legend!Bring it, noobs!!

P.S: Is there any way you can stick it up to 2 years without blocking the users you unblocked, as that is the year that all the persistent vandals will be leaving.

Re: re: template_talk pages[edit source]

I think this should be sent up as a problem report to wikia (staff et al). I was convinced you were just seeing them as left over from unpurged data, but it totally irritates me to no end to click a discussion link to find no-discussion at all, there *has* to be a way to correct this issue and it has to be inside the wikia software. ~kytti khat 22:53, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

Okay, I've started a problem report at Special:ProblemReports/17455 and pushed it up to need wikia staff assistance level. Please feel free to clarify or add to anything i've put into the report, especially on its associated talk page. thanks ~kytti khat 00:11, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

Exchange: Saradomin Godsword[edit source]

As per my apology, User talk:, I misread the amount of zero's removed from the exchange price. Thanks for addressing my mistake.

Bonziiznob Talk

10:31, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Comment - I do however after reviewing the article's history believe that is was still vandalism. If you read price per alchemy prior to his change you will notice that over te past several weeks, it has been consistent with my revert. Please look into it. 10:34, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
Comment - Nevermind. It appears the amount per alchemy has been wrong for some time and he was in fact correcting it. The bases behind my revert was that for this long period of time it was assumed correct so I assumed it was a vandal to remove the zeros as per stereotypical vandals. However I know now it is in fact what he editted it to be cause more prior the same value is shown. Confusing yes, wrong of me to assume no good faith(as per the account being an I.P. address and only removing zeros), therefore I remain in apology. Sorry. 10:44, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

ip block[edit source]

Somehow, the very instant I archive my talk page after a year's absence, someone starts vandalizing using my same IP. I am so confused. Hyenaste 11:59, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

That is too much of a coincidence. It must be someone physically at your location. Administrator Hurston (T # C) 12:05, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Ip Block?[edit source]

Hi. I was about to edit a page when some message came up and said that my IP address is blocked. It said that some guy named "Unknown Warrior" used my IP address to vandalize the Wiki, and it said that I should talk to you. I find this rather...strange, because the only other person who uses this laptop is my sister, and she doesn't play RuneScape.

I do occasionally edit the Wiki with another laptop, if that information helps. Luckily the block is only for one more day. If you could help sort this out, it'd be great. :)

 Tien  22:42, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Wait a second, this is messed up. The message seems to come randomly. Seeing as I edited your talk page when I'm apparently blocked, I clicked the Edit button on a random article and that message didn't come up. Then when I came back here, it said I was blocked. I went back to the article... blocked. Came back here... not blocked. o.O

 Tien  22:50, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

I think you can edit talk pages when you are blocked, I'm trying to find out how to unblock you, but I can't work out how... Administrator Hurston (T # C) 22:51, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
It's weird, the message comes up randomly. Sometimes it blocks me from editing, sometimes it doesn't. Ah well, it's not too big of a problem I think... I'm not planning on editing today, I just wanted to talk to Dtm142 about something. And the blcok apparently expires tomorrow, so I can wait. Anyway, thanks for your offering to help me. :)  Tien  22:58, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Yea,I had this happen to me because my brother put vandalism on the mainpage and not only him that got blocked, I did too and i did nothing wrong and the worst thing was that i was autoblocked because of this. It also said that he uses the same ip adress as me but we edit from different computers so it couldnt be. Liam - Beta Tester (talk) 13:36, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

Deletion[edit source]

Clarifying some things[edit source]

Hey Hurston, just wanted to clarify some doubts about the AGF policy. I'm sorta confused about when I should report and when I should not. I understand that obvious vandalism with offensive language, inappropriate content should be reported immediately. But what about the exchange prices? If the price of something is say, 5000 and an IP address (which is usually the case) comes along and adds a 0 to make it 50000, is that vandalism? I used to think so but then an admin did not block the IP address after I reported a similar case, so now I simply warn the IP address.

Just now on the Exchange:Bronze dagger page, an IP address changed the value to some astronomical figure. I simply warned him/her but you blocked the IP address so I figured you would know. SO I'm assuming I should have simply reported the vandal, right? (Correct me if I am wrong) Thanks. C.ChiamTalk 13:07, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

It can be complex. Some like the bronze dagger are obvious vandalism. There are cases where it is not :
1) They have changed the price, to the correct price but missed out or added a 0. Looking at the runescape site can help you work out if they are vandlising by seeing if the root of the new price is correct. Equally they may be fixing previous vandalism, so adding or removing a 0 may be correct.
2) They may change it to the max or the min price. Whilst not correct, they probably have good intentions, so don't block.
3) They may be changing it to the more accurate price given when you actually look at the grand exchange, rather than the price on the runescape web page (or vice-versa), which is fine.
4) Any change within the max-min range can be corrected, but is probably not vandalism.
I hope that helps. Administrator Hurston (T # C) 13:16, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

Hmm, yeah that cleared some questions in my mind. Btw, I thought that you would be replying on my talkpage, I did not know you replied until I saw the recent changes. C.ChiamTalk 13:26, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

A quick question[edit source]

Hey Hurston, I need to clarify some stuff again. Should images that are used on talkpages only, be deleted? Because I happen to know a few that are only used on talkpages (not yet deleted) and a few that were on talkpages but later deleted. Also, thanks for supporting on my RfA =D!

Hurston, we have an #ifexist problem[edit source]

At this point I'm still trying to do follow-up on this issue yet I keep running into cache issues ([Special:ProblemReports/18193). Right now I'm re-awaiting the cache to be rebuilt for Category:Templates without talk pages as it inadvertently has picked up false hits due to sub-nested templates. I believe with enough proper data and given a bit of time code gazing (which can be similar to crystal ball gazing) that a solution can be found for this, but for us to just sweep it under the rug I don't feel is appropriate just yet. As such please bear with me and this bug as I try to get enough good data together (while combing over code) to see if this issue can be addressed. (there is a possibility that the /. effect could be of help in the fixing of this issue, but first and foremost is full documentation of the issue in as much detail as possible.) ~kytti khat 02:02, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

Yes in a former life (lived inside a cubical farm where they grew mushrooms and software engineers) i was also not a mushroom (but you know how corporations are, they're full of that recyclable bio-matter that mushrooms thrive in). The language is php but the syntax should be totally comfortable to you. The link regarding the bug documentation is at which spells out how the problem comes about, meanwhile the links to the extension's code is at [[Template_talk:Tnavbar#Bug_tracking_issue]] thanks to Couchpotato To see the full picture the base code needs reviewed as well. ~kytti khat 19:23, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

Checkuser[edit source]

Hello Hurston, in order to counter the recent vandal bot attacks, Wikia has decided to grant four administrators the checkuser tool. The following users have been given the tool: Karlis, AndorinKato, you, and myself. Please only use this in cases of serious abusive sockpuppetry or in the cases of another vandal bot attack. Wikimedia's tips and hints. Also, keep in mind each use of the tool is logged, feel free though to run a test or two on one of the vandal's accounts to familiarize yourself with the tool, (though of course only a test or two.). If you need any additional assistance feel free to ask (checkuser can be found on the contributions page).--

It does seem kind of silly, but I don't think it has done any harm. It does inform IP's that they can sign up, as I'm sure some don't know about it or how to. I think it would be handy to have around. It also lets them know which admins are currently active should they have any questions. Personally, I see no reason to disable it. Karlis (talk) (contribs) 14:04, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

IP "vandal"[edit source]

Hi Hurston. Just wondering, why did you block IP address His edit specifically targeted the trivia section, which leads me to believe that he isn't a vandal. Typical vandals would just remove all the information from the page. His edit removed some trivia which we was not really needed in the article. I would like to unblock him but I would like to hear from you first. Regards. C.ChiamTalk 13:36, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

That's true. However, the IP user could have thought that articles weren't suppose to have trivia or anything of the sort. I'm just going to unblock him and give him a chance per RS:AGF. C.ChiamTalk 13:44, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

Hey!![edit source]

Hi Hurston, I was wondering why my signature page [[Template:Astonisho]] was deleted by you. I do not see anything wrong in it. --{{Astonisho}} 17:50, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

He's Back...[edit source]

That Pagemaker guy you blocked yesterday is back with a new account (Page Maka!!!). As I said on CVU yesterday, I think it's safe to assume that he's here for disruption only (look at the first edit to the first account's userpage, his userpage on this account, and his behavior on the forums). Since you seem to be on right now, would you mind dealing with him? --Beware the underrated. Pikaandpi Berserker Fury!Hit hard or go home. 14:02, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

Money making external links[edit source]

Coolmanmike 19:24, 27 May 2009 (UTC)Hey mate, Just wondered why you removed the external links on the money making page as i use it often and i know many other people use it as well. Other pages still have external links and its well worth having for exra information about that topic. The money making guide is the most important guide on here and i think its necessary for there to be external links. Please get back to me.

Hey. Can you please perform a check user on User:Jeffreychard and compare his IP to a blocked IP. I logged on today and went to Gertjaars CC cause I wanted to elaborate more on the situation about him on the forums, and a General there, Jeffreychard, was on. I talked to him about the wiki cause I recognized him name and he said his IP is autoblocked and can't edit. Thanks kindly.

Seeds[edit source]

Hello there Hurston. Around some time in May 8th, I inquired about adjusting the growth times for all the farming patches. (Link) As I have now completed my farming data analysis with growth stages, I would like to make that time adjustment that I requested earlier. There are a couple problems though;

  • The actual growth times lead into the seconds as well.
  • The resulting time difference (between fastest growth time and slowest growth time) would be too complicated for many visitors.

Question 1)
Should I not include the minimum time for the plants in the table, to fix this problem? What would you suggest?

Question 2)
Should I include seconds in the table, or would that be unnecessary clutter?

For an example on the growth stages lengths, please check User:Zigzagpaul/sandbox
Zig 10:45, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

Excellent then. I'll start editing all the times immediately. Although I do have 1 problem. Only 1 of the plants appears to be missing a growth cycle for Whiteberry seed. I've checked this one twice, and I got the same results. I feel that I will need to check it again just for the sake that it looks like an error. As for now, I'll leave it as-is and correct it when I find the missing growth cycle. Zig 11:43, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

Blocking[edit source]

I think it's a bit harsch to block just because he/she removed a pretty odd strategy to fight the tree spirit. Yeah imagine a lvl 61 ranger in red hide useing dragon bolts (e)..

Many thanks for all the comments guys, it really means a lot to me. As a word of explanation, I switched from playing Runescape to playing Evercrack II. When I'm bored with that, I plan to start playing RS again (much to the annoyance of my long suffering wife) and start editing the wiki again. It could be quite a while though.
