Welcome![edit source]

Hello Moontempt, and welcome to the Runescape Wiki!
Runescape Wiki
We are glad you took interest in our wiki. If you have any questions, doubts or having trouble, you can ask them in my talk page, any editor's talk page or you can take a look at the help page. We will happily answer them.

Here are some useful tips to help start new editors, like yourself:

Remember to sign your name on talk pages by using four tildes (~~~~) or use the "sign" button (Signature) above the edit box. This will automatically produce your name and the date. Signing your comments is important, as it lets other editors know who has posted which comments.

Again, welcome! — Jr Mime (talk) 21:44, May 21, 2012 (UTC)

Re:Ruined boat[edit source]

This is why I reverted it; you tried to use visual editor to make links. If you do want to make edits like that, please go to Special:Preferences > Editing > Remove tick from first box > Save. This will stop the page coming out like the one I reverted. Small recharge gem.png AnselaJonla Slayer-icon.png 22:20, December 11, 2012 (UTC)

Hey[edit source]

Don't worry about Mol. He's hard to please. A good editor, yes, but very hard to please. 7kyt1iT.gif --WINE OF GOOD HEALTH (Actually Stinko) 01:30, January 24, 2016 (UTC)

RE[edit source]

The comment wasn't about you. It was about the visual editor. I've seen it do a lot of stupid stuff, but the errors it caused in your edit (which were not your fault), just left me dumbfounded. I'm sorry if you took my summary the wrong way. MolMan 14:04, January 24, 2016 (UTC)

Spelling[edit source]

Information icon.svg  Hello, Moontempt. Your recent edit used American English, whereas the RuneScape Wiki prefers British English in articles. Please try to adhere to these guidelines in subsequent edits. Thanks. Small recharge gem.png AnselaJonla Slayer-icon.png 14:08, April 23, 2016 (UTC)

Also, please stop removing important information from articles. Small recharge gem.png AnselaJonla Slayer-icon.png 14:10, April 23, 2016 (UTC)
Geez, no need to rage in your edit summaries. Excuse me for making an edit with American English TWO MINUTES after you told me not to.. at which point I had not yet seen my talk page. So no, I was not ignoring you. I had not seen the page yet. As far as removing important information goes, I agree with you that the bit you added back should not have been removed. It was late at night for me, and if anything I removed it to make the article consistent with the others that did not have that bit of information. Thank you for putting it back in, and thank you for putting it in all the other articles as well. It should be there. The rage though... nice thing waking up to. Moontempt (talk) 22:32, April 23, 2016 (UTC)
Sorry about the raging. I wasn't specifically venting at you with that. (PS, most people don't see responses to their messages if you leave them on your own talk page.) Small recharge gem.png AnselaJonla Slayer-icon.png 18:07, April 24, 2016 (UTC)

Value[edit source]

The low alchemy value of the dragon longsword is actually 40,000. You noticed a rounding error that went uncaught. I've fixed it now and Dragon longsword should display the correct value. Thanks for noticing. MolMan 11:10, April 27, 2016 (UTC)

Requesting deletion[edit source]

Please don't make talk pages in order to request deletion. Instead put {{d|reason}} onto the page/file you want deleting. I've done it for you on the memoriam device image. Small recharge gem.png AnselaJonla Slayer-icon.png 06:16, April 29, 2016 (UTC)

Alright, I wasn't sure of the protocol so I just did it. Thanks for taking care of that. Moontempt (talk) 07:01, April 29, 2016 (UTC)

cat[edit source]

It is not currently possible to name each cat you own, naming a cat gives the name to all owned cats.

It's already in the trivia. And each player's cats have different names. MolMan 21:36, May 4, 2016 (UTC)

Ah, cool, thanks! Moontempt (talk) 22:14, May 4, 2016 (UTC)

re[edit source]

There's only 1 link to that page anywhere. And it should honestly just have all 4 outfits linked instead of a disambiguation. MolMan 19:25, June 1, 2016 (UTC)

Re: Chompy bird hats[edit source]

It doesn't seem necessary to note something that is not true. If an article doesn't mention the option of storing it in a player-owned house, I'd assume it can't be stored. The wiki is not about "more information over less information"; you could add that sentence to every page on the wiki, but it wouldn't be useful information even though it's "more". I haven't ever seen an article say it can't be stored in a POH, re: your last sentence. --Iiii I I I 04:59, June 2, 2016 (UTC)

Divine charge[edit source]

Why did you change the table to use only the incandescent energy values? All types of divine energy can be used to make a charge. Small recharge gem.png AnselaJonla Slayer-icon.png 19:14, June 11, 2016 (UTC)

Personally I would go over the general term "divine energy" over singling out a specific energy type. Not everyone reads the whole article, so making it clear in the recipe that any type of energy can be used is probably for the best.
I can see why the ingame interfaces only mention indcandescent. There's only so much room, especially on the skill guide tooltip, and mentioning all of them and the amounts would be a stretch. Small recharge gem.png AnselaJonla Slayer-icon.png 19:44, June 11, 2016 (UTC)

Re: Thanks[edit source]

You're welcome. The lower case was annoying me, so I had to change it. I fixed the double redirect I created, but you might want to use Special:Whatlinkshere to find any that weren't immediately obvious from the Move Log.

Slayer helms and slayer masks[edit source]

I did not "swoop all your changes away" just for the hell of it – I moved the pages back because the parenthetical was not necessary. Parentheses are used to separate pages with similar titles, not as descriptors of the subject's function. Having "Slayer helm" redirect to an even more specific title ("Slayer helm (Treasure Hunter)") is pointless, as there is only one page with that title; its Treasure Hunter status should be noted in the article itself.

If you have an issue with something I did, please talk to me about it instead of passive-aggressively posting on your userpage. As far as I can tell, it did not take you three hours to simply add (Treasure Hunter) to a few pages, and I take offense at the implication that my edits were not carefully considered. --Iiii I I I 20:51, October 14, 2016 (UTC)

An administrator's opinion is not any more correct than a regular user's opinion, but in this case it's not a matter of opinion; the style guide I linked above has specific rules for naming. I see your point about the slayer helm/slayer helmet similarity, but parentheticals are (almost always) used only when pages have the exact same title. A better choice in this case would be to place a {{Confuse}} or {{Otheruses}} template at the top of the page.
I would've explained myself earlier had I known this was an issue, but I didn't notice your discussion with Ansela until you mentioned it on my talk. As for why she didn't move the pages instead of me, one person can't possibly notice every detail, which is why we're actively trying to encourage more people to edit. Ansela's also not an administrator, although she was one a few years ago.
Your edits are still appreciated – the wikitable you added to slayer mask was a good idea, for example. I apologize if I came off as ungracious and I hope I haven't put you off from contributing more in the future. --Iiii I I I 07:22, October 16, 2016 (UTC)

Re: Chromatic partyhat[edit source]

Why did you remove information? Small recharge gem.png AnselaJonla Slayer-icon.png 06:49, October 27, 2016 (UTC)

The chromatic partyhat is a reward from Dimension of Disaster, and the requirement is to unlock all rewards. Small recharge gem.png AnselaJonla Slayer-icon.png 07:09, October 27, 2016 (UTC)
It probably needs rewording to make it clearer, but removing the chromatic partyhat from the description would also confuse players. Small recharge gem.png AnselaJonla Slayer-icon.png 07:16, October 27, 2016 (UTC)
Just asked a clannie who has done that req (I've not even finished the quest), and she says you don't need the party hat. Gonna make a quick change to the page. Small recharge gem.png AnselaJonla Slayer-icon.png 07:26, October 27, 2016 (UTC)

I explicitly added that the chromatic partyhat doesn't need to be purchased, because people can consider it as a reward from DoD, plus they might not know that it's not bought from Gipsy Aris's shop. That was the whole reason, to take away the confusion, however it seems I worded it so it could be interpretted in multiple ways. But now it's clear, I hope? Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 21:51, October 27, 2016 (UTC)

Yeah, but readers are lazy, so to clarify, I added it on MQC. Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 00:58, October 28, 2016 (UTC)
Oh I see, it probably depends on the context, but some clarification is not always bad. (Have I been one of the reverters?) Also it was worded like this for almost a year, and you were the first that changed it. :P Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 07:26, October 28, 2016 (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 01:19, December 14, 2016 (UTC)

RE:Thing[edit source]

No problem, I didn't know the fix would be that stupid, just tried the first thing I could think of. :P

And I was happy to support your nomination for the Wikian title, you earned it! :) Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 23:38, December 15, 2016 (UTC)

Signature[edit source]

I noticed your signature has a <span> too much which will cause any text after your signature to become part of your signature's box. I'm refering to the second <span> after <span style="border:3px solid #2F4F4F; background:white;">. That <span> is missing an ending </span> tag, but is kinda unnecessary since your other <span> tags are doing what they should do. :) Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 01:12, December 16, 2016 (UTC)

I'm a software developer IRL too! Front-end doesn't like me very well either, but I've improved a little thanks to the wiki. Nice signature, but it could be helpful to also add a link to your talk page, so people only have to click once to go to your talk page. :) Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 13:21, December 16, 2016 (UTC)

Sextant[edit source]

About your problems on Talk:Sextant, have you completed the Observatory Quest? I believe that's a prerequisite. ɳex undique 20:26, December 26, 2016 (UTC)

Wait, you said you're trying to reclaim so you already have one. Never mind lol. ɳex undique 20:40, December 26, 2016 (UTC)
No problem, glad to help! ɳex undique 21:42, December 26, 2016 (UTC)

Wikia forking thread[edit source]

Hey Moontempt! 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 21:39, September 30, 2018 (UTC)
