TH promo stuff[edit source]

I've reverted your changes (1, 2, 3) as Smouldering Lamps, Lava Lanterns and Supernova are separate promotions, not the collection of items from those promotions. Yes, the items from those 3 promotions are also available during Cerberus Rush, but that doesn't change those three promotions into this one. The templates you changed are for those 3 specific promotions which are not affected by other promotions offering the same items. What you should do is add the release history of Cerberus Rush to the affected items pages, e.g. add Template:THRelease/Cerberus Rush as {{THRelease/Cerberus Rush}} to small smouldering lamp like this.

Dialog(ue)[edit source]

Hi MrDew, I noticed you edited some transcripts and added the word "dialog" to them. I just wanted to let you know that the wiki uses British English, see RS:STYLE#SPELLING. So it should be "dialogue" instead of "dialog". Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 07:59, 4 February 2020 (UTC)

Wikian title[edit source]

Hi, would you like to be nominated for the Wikian title? :) Magic logs detail.pngIsobelJTalk page 16:34, 6 February 2020 (UTC)

After reading the guidelines, I think it best I decline any nominations for now. Thank you for your offer. MrDew (talk) 23:45, 6 February 2020 (UTC)

re: Separating .js out from your common.js[edit source]

Hi, thanks for the tip. After waiting a bit, presumably for the cache to catch up, it works great. -Hourglass (2011 Hallowe'en event) detail.png I Am Me Talk III The Spark.png- 05:25, 8 February 2020 (UTC)

Apparently, the issue wasn't (just) caching - not every page loads mw.util. To get it to work consistently, I instead had to do

mw.loader.using(['mediawiki.util']).then(function() {
	mw.loader.load(
	    mw.util.getUrl(
	        "User:I Am Me/show-paren-mode.js",
	        { action: "raw", ctype: "text/javascript" }
	    )
	);
});

"not every page loads mw.util" - Huh... I didn't know that. Good catch! Sorry if that caused you any extra head-scratching... MrDew (talk) 00:48, 9 February 2020 (UTC)

Update history on transcript pages[edit source]

Hey MrDew, I saw you added an update history entry to Transcript:The Chosen Commander. Could you in the future please add update history only to mainspace articles please? E.g. The Chosen Commander instead of Transcript:The Chosen Commander. Nice work on adding those update history entries btw. :) Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 11:13, 17 February 2020 (UTC)

Memory's fuzzy, but that mightn't be the only one you'll find done that way. IIRC, I was unsure which is preferred, briefly scanned RuneScape:Maintenance/Update_history / RS:HIP but found nothing, and eventually ran across an existing UH added to a Transcript page. MrDew (talk) 11:16, 17 February 2020 (UTC)
Then again, DPL's not finding any others after the couple of edits you've made... huh. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ MrDew (talk) 11:20, 17 February 2020 (UTC)
I've just checked and I've moved all uses of update history to the corresponding mainspace page. As after posting this message I also found Transcript:Janus having update history before I moved it to Janus. But you're right, it seems it has not been documented somewhere that UH should be kept in the mainspace. Perhaps it should be discussed on the wiki forums or on the discord to see what others think of this. To me it just makes sense to keep in the mainspace, but perhaps others disagree.

Wikian title nomination[edit source]

Hey MrDew, would you like to be nominated for the Wikian title? Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 09:33, 11 March 2020 (UTC)

Between Isobel's previous offer and now, I'm guessing (hoping?) potential voters will have seen my name around enough to have a clear opinion in mind. I guess a nomination is as good as any way to solicit those opinions... so, yes, nominate away if you'd like. MrDew (talk) 09:42, 11 March 2020 (UTC)

RE: Creating update posts[edit source]

I mainly just copy and paste it while editting the templates as I go through it. There was an automated method though with a "Create update" button on the Updates page, however that hasn't worked for me for a few months now. pjJ4pBM.png Abyssal vine whip.png 17:52, 18 March 2020 (UTC)

Soil screening[edit source]

I've added you to RuneScape:One Small Wiki Favour/Archive 3 - let us know when you're online to collect. Thanks, Magic logs detail.pngIsobelJTalk page 20:10, 6 May 2020 (UTC)

Apologies[edit source]

Hi MrDew, I wanted to apologise for calling you a "genius" the other day on Discord. It was meant sarcastically and I didn't want to offend you. :( Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 11:08, 29 May 2020 (UTC)

Release date[edit source]

I see you corrected release date of pride note back to the its appearance in the game cache. I'm a bit confused, as Template:Infobox Item#release states that the date of availability should be listed here instead of the date it appears in the cache. Is the documentation wrong, or the correction? Thingummywut (talk) 11:00, 29 June 2020 (UTC)

Probably only the latter MrDew (talk) 21:44, 29 June 2020 (UTC)

Naming convention for floors[edit source]

Thank you for explaining why you reverted my edit. I was not aware that there was a way to have this preference set by the user (and it surprises me that the default setting is not the way it is in RuneScape). Could you point me to where I can set this? Talk to meTHARKONMy hiscores 18:12, 11 September 2020 (UTC)

At the very top of any wiki page, you should see to the left of the current game time a picture of a crescent moon - the hover text states "Your appearance settings". Click that, and the setting at the bottom of the pop-up should let you select which type of floor numbering you would prefer to see. The default is an automatic setting that tries to detect if your browser/operating system is set to use a US-variant of English; if it is, it will default to the US-style numberings, otherwise it should default to the UK-style instead.

RE: autosort tables[edit source]

That is an excellent catch - I hadn't previously noticed this and have been inadvertently cascading this for nearly a year for tables I have been working on. I have fixed the 109 instances identified in your regexp search - thanks for the heads up, and let me know if you see any others may have been excluded from your search for some reason or another (based on the syntax, I would expect that to have caught them all, but ya never know).
