Welcome![edit source]

The RuneScape Wiki

Hello, Lexmechanic, and welcome to the RuneScape Wiki! Here are a few pages that you might find helpful:

If you have any trouble or need help, feel free to ask questions on my talk page or any other editor's talk page. We hope you like it here and decide to stay! Smithing (talk | contribs) 17:52, February 25, 2012 (UTC)

Re:Splitbark[edit source]

Technically, yes. Whilst the information was still intact, the attribution (the page history) had been left on the old page. Easy fix though Wink If you need to move something to a page that already exists again just tag it with something like {{m|<pagename>, <reason>}} replacing <reason> and <pagename> with the reason and pagename.

Attribution isn't an issue for readers so much, but if we ever have to prove something with page history (for example someone copying us and we need to prove we had the older version) it's essential. cqm 19:04, 21 Mar 2013 (UTC) (UTC)

Alright, good to know. ^.^ I'll keep that in mind. Thank you!

Re:Determining monster stats?[edit source]

The Runescape Bestiary has monster stats in it. In addition, monster stats tend to be Combat Level/2 for their primary attack stat(s) and Defence.Quest point cape.png Orodalf Talk Nature rune.png 13:52, April 6, 2013 (UTC)

New talk pages[edit source]

When making new pages in the Talk, File talk or any talk that isn't User talk, could you please add {{talkheader}} to the top, above the first message? Small recharge gem.png AnselaJonla Slayer-icon.png 00:45, April 11, 2013 (UTC)

Re:Image deletion[edit source]

Yes. If it's not being placed directly onto a mainspace page (i.e. any page that doesn't have a prefix such as Talk:, User: etc), then you need to host it offsite on somewhere like imgur or photobucket. Small recharge gem.png AnselaJonla Slayer-icon.png 21:07, April 25, 2013 (UTC)

Be Bold, and if anyone wants to disagree with your edits, let them explain why they do so. If you're going to add it to the quest guide/location page (or both) drop me a message so I can undelete it. Small recharge gem.png AnselaJonla Slayer-icon.png 21:13, April 25, 2013 (UTC)

Checklist[edit source]

Just that all personal pages must exist within the User: namespace. You accidentally used the wrong prefix (Use:). When I attempted to change the namespace, it said the page User:Lexmechanic/checklist already existed, so I just added a 'b'. MolMan 18:55, April 26, 2013 (UTC)

Goutweed[edit source]

So, they finally got 'round to fixing the Import Save button, and lo and behold: data! I still have the Goutweed in case I need/want to gather more data. IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 17:53, July 16, 2013 (UTC)

Re:POP navbox[edit source]

No problem, the same issue was present on {{Steel equipment}}. I've recently changed the backend coding of navboxes which has unwittingly caused them to be a little more unforgiving of unclosed tags. Either way, it's a simpler fix that digging around the navbox coding for what's causing the error Wink cqm 17:38, 25 Jun 2014 (UTC) (UTC)

the Wikian title[edit source]

Hello! Following the discussion at RuneScape:The Wikian, you have been granted the Wikian title! Please make arrangements with Gaz Lloyd to receive the title in game. If you could please add your in-game name to RuneScape:The Wikian/Users, it would be most appreciated. Thanks and congratulations! svco4bY.png3Gf5N2F.png 01:18, December 14, 2016 (UTC)

Hey! Just checking back through RuneScape:the Wikian/Users, and you don't appear to have claimed your title yet. Please contact me in-game (accounts Gaz Lloyd or Gaz L) or via RS:DISCORD to arrange a meetup so I can grant it :) Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 22:23, February 18, 2017 (UTC)

User:Lexmechanic/questlog[edit source]


So... I noticed you have a neat little tracker/log thing over at User:Lexmechanic/questlog, do you mind if I rummage around your code for my own idea of a tracker?

Basically; I'm wanting to do a similar thing (check out this). The idea has changed a bit since then. I'm only going to do it for GM quests (or quest series with a lengthy amount of requirements). Buuuuut the problem is I'm not really sure where to start, so it'd be great if I could look how you've done it :D

Either way, thanks for your time :)

You're welcome to it! :) I often learn new tricks by checking out what other people have done. Best of luck with your project!

Wikia forking thread[edit source]

Hey Lexmechanic! I wanted to give you a heads up that there's a thread (Forum:Leaving Wikia) up for discussion right now about moving this wiki (and OSRS wiki) away from Wikia, to a self-hosted, Jagex-supported site. We'd love your input on the proposal (and the new wikis). Thanks! Magic logs detail.pngIsobelJTalk page 21:29, September 30, 2018 (UTC)

Vote in the Weird Gloop elections![edit source]

Hi Lexmechanic!

Because of your involvement with the wiki, you are eligible to vote on the candidates for the board of Weird Gloop, the company that hosts the RuneScape and Old School RuneScape wikis.

See meta:Weird Gloop elections/2019/Candidates for candidate presentations, and meta:Weird Gloop elections for how to vote – it'll take maybe 5 minutes.

There are 4 candidates for RuneScape, 4 candidates for OSRS, and 1 candidate for pt-RuneScape. If you'd like to influence who represents the voices of these communities inside the company, I strongly encourage you to vote! You are one of only 204 people that meet the requirements, and this is a chance to help shape the future of the wikis.

Thanks! ʞooɔ 01:07, 23 December 2019 (UTC)
