Inventory icons[edit source]

Hey, are all of the image uploads your bot account’s been making inventory icons that you’ve taken in game? Just trying to understand why they’re coming from the bot (and the template removal seemingly isn’t). Micha (talk) 12:50, 5 November 2021 (UTC)

Yes, they're all from in-game screengrabs. Tried to automate both the mass uploads and page edits but goofed up on the latter half and just decided to do it manually instead. MrDew (talk) 12:53, 5 November 2021 (UTC)
Cool, thanks. I wrote a Python script for GIMP that automatically uploads and zaps the template from within the editor, makes the flow really smooth - if you’re interested I posted it in Discord. There’s also a drag-and-drop batch upload page on the wiki (in the sidebar, I believe) if you prefer to save the files locally. Micha (talk) 12:57, 5 November 2021 (UTC)

Calcval[edit source]

I think your edits here and here may have broken something. The Calculated value property isn't getting set on potions anymore, like the extremes and overloads, see Aggroverload, for example. I'm not sure how to fix that. Shadow dye.png  Californ1a talkSealed clue scroll (hard).png 20:53, 21 December 2021 (UTC)

@Californ1a: the "something" that got broken was unrelated to those edits but instead to something within the wiki software itself. The breaking change has already been reverted, but unfortunately it seems to have destroyed SMW properties for a lot of pages. Those properties will need to be restored either via scheduled automated maintenance, manual maintenance, or by "purging" (e.g. clicking "Refresh" on the "More" menu at the top-right corner of an article) the broken pages. For example, I purged the Overload and then Aggroverload pages, and the latter now shows the recipe infobox (with a calc'd value for overload). MrDew (talk) 20:58, 21 December 2021 (UTC)


Reverts of my work[edit source]

It's interesting you have reverted my image of the existing low res Cramulet stating there was already an image, yet you overwrote my image of the mining rework image I took in 2019 in the Varrock East mine with no explanation. I will take that as a hint and leave. Cheers. 159.196.71.205 15:06, 7 January 2022 (UTC)

Eye of Het[edit source]

Hi! Quick note - Can you add in the icon then for the Eye of Het II (miniquest) when you get the chance? It's currently unrendered and blank otherwise! LORD OF T1ME (talk) 13:41, 10 January 2022 (UTC)

@LORD OF T1ME: Er, not sure what you mean; the icon has already been added (it's the generic Sixth Age one) and appears in the upper-right corner of the Overview section. MrDew (talk) 13:47, 10 January 2022 (UTC)
@MrDew: All I see is a red "300 px" broken link above the quest box, no image. Only reason I thought to add one in. LORD OF T1ME (talk) 13:53, 10 January 2022 (UTC)
@LORD OF T1ME: Above the Quest infobox should be "an image that captures the quest well", not the quest icon; this screenshot, for example, was taken for the previous miniquest. MrDew (talk) 13:55, 10 January 2022 (UTC)
@MrDew: I get what you're saying, but there's still no image there. Only a broken link for an image. LORD OF T1ME (talk) 17:56, 10 January 2022 (UTC)

Shifting Tombs[edit source]

@MrDew: Thanks for cleaning up the Shifting Tombs chest guide stuff and fixing my horrific % chance calculation :) Jetbent (talk) 00:23, 2 February 2022 (UTC)

By the way, do you have a discord for any of this? Mine is Jetbent#6666 Jetbent (talk) 00:24, 2 February 2022 (UTC)

@DoctorPuff: Didn't really change the output numbers at all, it's just that when converting MMGs to the "dynamic kph" (e.g. there's a box at the upper-left that allows readers to dynamically alter the rate according to their personal speed, etc.), one of the nice side effects is that you can leave the output numbers expressed as the raw chances (like 1/800) and let the per-hour number get multiplied behind the scenes. As for Discord, the wiki has its own here. MrDew (talk) 00:30, 2 February 2022 (UTC)

20 Year Veteran Emote[edit source]

@MrDew: Thanks for cleaning up the emote I added to the page, sorry for any inconvenience. I'm new to wiki editing and I will try to learn from what you changed. Luffdaddy22 (talk) 01:49, 3 February 2022 (UTC)

No worries; 90+% of the "cleanup" I do is just minor pedantic crap I wouldn't expect most to care about at all. MrDew (talk) 01:57, 3 February 2022 (UTC)


Thank you for signing my guest book[edit source]

@MrDew: Thanks! | Yuno (talk) 02:09, 4 February 2022 (UTC)

War's Reckoning fact[edit source]

You removed the fact about "Increased luck on the rare drop table" for War's Reckoning. Do you happen to know what this means? If that is the case, would you mind adding that to the article? Simply stating "Increased chance to receive a drop from the rare drop table" isn't quite informative enough. Thingummywut (talk) 23:34, 7 February 2022 (UTC)

@Thingummywut: If you're holding out for an exact formula... yeah, it'd be nice if a JMod would provide that, but it didn't seem necessary to use a template like {{Fact}} because of that. Also seems weird to use that template specifically given that the factuality of the statement isn't in question rather just its lack of details, although I guess there's not really a similar in-text template for that? At any rate, feel free to re-add it if you really think it ought to be there. MrDew (talk)User:MrDew 23:53, 7 February 2022 (UTC)
Nah, I'm good. I really wish that the fact template wouldn't output just that "requires source" thing, but would notify that there is more information needed. Using the incomplete template is a bit overkill in many places, and the dispute inline template isn't quite correct for this purpose either... Thingummywut (talk) 00:14, 8 February 2022 (UTC)

Double redirect script and Discord[edit source]

Your double redirect script seems to use regex lookbehinds - how difficult would it be to refactor those out? iOS doesn’t support them and so the script doesn’t function.

P.S. I saw you’re not in Discord these days, did something happen? We miss you :-) Micha (talk) 14:57, 13 May 2022 (UTC)
