Re:Comma[edit source]

The page was edited in a way to prevent edit warring. Achievements Coelacanth0794 Talk Contribs 15:39, August 19, 2018 (UTC)

The mere fact that edit warring was even a possibility is ridiculous in this case. RuneMetrics Paul Z Talk bite me HS Contributions 15:41, August 19, 2018 (UTC)


Currencies rework[edit source]

Please bear with me everyone. I know there's a lot of clean-up to be done, and I know exactly what needs to be cleaned up. I will it get done, but it may take me a few days or weeks; gradual process. RuneMetrics Paul Z Talk bite me HS Contributions 22:07, August 22, 2018 (UTC)

Please put all subgroups in the subnavbox next time like here. Thank you. :) Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 22:17, August 23, 2018 (UTC)
Oh gotcha, woops. RuneMetrics Paul Z Talk bite me HS Contributions 22:31, August 23, 2018 (UTC)

Moving pages[edit source]

If ye wish to change a page name, please move the page rather than copypasting the article. If there's a redirect, ask an admin to move the page instead. By moving the page, we preserve the page history and also move the associated talk pages What I've done Ciphrius Kane Talk 01:05, August 24, 2018 (UTC)

Yeah, I know. I was just overwhelmed by the number of pages to be moved, and I thought the best temporary fix for some of the problems was to just copy/paste. This is part of the lengthy cleaning up process I mentioned above. For example, with changing Slayer reward point to Slayer points, I thought the best thing to do was to copy/paste because I couldn't move it due to the latter already existing as a redirect page... And I didn't know admins could make that move. Live and learn. RuneMetrics Paul Z Talk bite me HS Contributions 15:29, August 24, 2018 (UTC)

Re:Celestial Dragons[edit source]

How would people be confused regarding the celestial dragon resource dungeon and the Elite Dungeon? Achievements Coelacanth0794 Talk Contribs 20:45, August 24, 2018 (UTC)

The two are *radically* different. One is a quest reward being a room full of Slayer monsters and the other is what's effectively a 3-boss raid with a menagerie of different monsters. Dragontooth has no laboratory equipment or hints of such. If you forget the name of the new dungeon, "ED2" is a popular redirect already in use due to being the second elite dungeon. Achievements Coelacanth0794 Talk Contribs 20:51, August 24, 2018 (UTC)
Or they could just look on the article for Celestial dragons? The first thing you should see is an OtherUses for the ED2 variant, and then it has locations and mechanics. Achievements Coelacanth0794 Talk Contribs 20:59, August 24, 2018 (UTC)
It sounds to me like you need to word your searches better instead of adding redirect links that will just confuse people. Seriously, go to the monster page instead of slayer dungeon articles. Achievements Coelacanth0794 Talk Contribs 21:08, August 24, 2018 (UTC)
Yes, I'm arguing about the way you think, because you're trying to use it to justify bad edits. Try searching a different thing to get back on track ASAP. Achievements Coelacanth0794 Talk Contribs 21:22, August 24, 2018 (UTC)
All this would do is confuse people by adding dungeons that aren't linked except for a monster that shares the same graphics. Honestly, just use "ED2" to navigate instead of redirecting to dungeons without similar names. "Celestial" isn't even in the name of the elite dungeon. It's not the main target of the content, either. Achievements Coelacanth0794 Talk Contribs 21:29, August 24, 2018 (UTC)
Then I'm afraid this will need to end here and now. Pages will be protected from editing. Achievements Coelacanth0794 Talk Contribs 21:40, August 24, 2018 (UTC)
Gonna wade into this one -- if the issue is that Celestial dragon dungeon is ambiguous and people get confused when they end up on the Dragontooth Island resource dungeon page...why don't we just turn the first page into a disambig? Doesn't that solve the problem? ʞooɔ 22:06, August 24, 2018 (UTC)
Never thought of that, thanks! RuneMetrics Paul Z Talk bite me HS Contributions 22:10, August 24, 2018 (UTC)

Wikia forking thread[edit source]

Hey Paul! 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! ʞooɔ 21:03, September 26, 2018 (UTC)

Shops[edit source]

Hey Paul, just wondering why you are splitting stock from shop pages? jayden 13:47, 18 April 2019 (UTC)

Hey I'm just following a precedent that was in place for certain shops relating to currencies (e.g. Wizard Finix's Runecrafting Shop, etc.). If that's a faulty precedent, sorry, I'll put the stock directly on the shop page. I think it's good though, because it allows for easy transclusion on the currency pages. Paul Z (talk) 13:50, 18 April 2019 (UTC)
Ah I see - yeah that reasoning makes sense, just wondered if there was more to it than first met the eye. Haven't got an issue with splitting it, but I'm thinking that it'll probably cause invocations of {{Store locations list}} to show wrong/weird results. It's what we use on item pages to show which shops they can be obtained from. A lot of the pages you're moving don't actually use shop tables ({{ShopLine}} etc) so presumably none of the items use the aforementioned template, but for the ones that do it could end up behaving weird. Not sure of the best approach for that jayden 14:02, 18 April 2019 (UTC)

Re: Image sizes[edit source]

Haha no worries. Things like that used to happen to me a lot too, it's always annoying. ɳex undique 20:55, 2 June 2019 (UTC)

RE:the Elite[edit source]

You're correct, but it just looked odd. Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 19:44, 18 June 2019 (UTC)

Maybe different formatting such as using the title's template, in order to make the "the" that's part of the title look different from the "the" in the sentence. Paul Z (talk) 20:04, 18 June 2019 (UTC)

Small Herblore lamp[edit source]

Hey, I think that Small Herblore lamp and Small Herblore lamp (Herby Werby) are the same item. According to the Ge database there is only one item with that name. Don't know if they changed the lamp to a members item though. Luck of the Dwarves.png XoRMiAS Completionist cape detail.png 17:40, 9 July 2019 (UTC)

Re:120 emotes[edit source]

As in you've already recorded them? If that's the case you could upload it and there shouldn't be much of an issue. The conventional standards apply; AA, textures on, decent lighting, no other cosmetics. If you don't know how or can't I'll put some time in later today to try and gif them. Thanks for bringing it to my attention, I thought someone had already done those by now. Achievements Coelacanth0794 Talk Contribs 17:24, 30 November 2019 (UTC)

Vote in the Weird Gloop elections![edit source]

Hi Paul Z!

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)

RE.: Technical question[edit source]

Hey, the zoom issue is with your screen resolution I believe, if you have windows, your screen resolution should be at 100%, some computers come with it defaulted to 125% or 150%. It's hard to tell if the settings are fine since everything gets blurry when zoomed in, however, make sure you have the Antialiasing turned on (MSAA + FXAA is possible) and the skybox to midday (in most cases). I tend to make everything ultra + adjust that (it's not automatic). Meeeeerds msg 21:15, 5 January 2020 (UTC)

RE:Relight my (F)fire[edit source]

Please see Forum:Scenery page names and the preceding Forum:Disambiguating (pages with identical names). Although mediawiki handles it perfectly due to the pagenames being unique, this just makes it messy/confusing for editors and readers, as people might not know there's such a minute difference. So hence per RuneScape:Style guide/Disambiguation, we add disambiguating words in parenthesis to avoid confusion even if the pagename would be unique with a different capitalisation.

PoP resources[edit source]

Was this edit summary meant as the reason for the change, or were you wondering which is the correct explanation? In case it was the latter, each resource can go up to 999,999 separately (aside as mentioned for Chimes, which cap at 200,000). 213.219.165.61 17:42, 6 February 2020 (UTC)

Unreleased release date[edit source]

Hey Paul, release dates should not be added to the infobox until it actually has been released. So that's why I reverted your change to Archie. However you can mention in the body of the article that it's been announced to be released. Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 18:36, 26 February 2020 (UTC)

Patch Notes 2 March 2020[edit source]

Hey there Paul Z. I'm just double checking with you if you've fully done the 2 March 2020 Patch Notes (Update history project). If so, could you please mark it off on the Update History page? If it's not done yet, where did you leave off? I'll gladly finish it in that case. Thanks in advance! Kharidian cat.png Goos09 Talk Cat inv old.png 13:30, 16 March 2020 (UTC)

Oh alright. No worries. I'll double check now or tomorrow and add the missing ones, thanks for your reply. Kharidian cat.png Goos09 Talk Cat inv old.png 16:48, 17 March 2020 (UTC)

Ashdale Caves (achievement)[edit source]

Jagex unhid the hidden tutorial paths for "experienced" players today and I cannot find the path achievement you made: Ashdale Caves. Can you see which Path it is part of? Is it still a recently completed achievement that you could click? Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 18:42, 18 March 2020 (UTC)

I believe you that it exists as it's also in the cache. Unfortunately, the cache doesn't show of which path or category the achievement is a part of. I just went there with my main and I did not get the notification for the achievement. However I also tried it on an alt that I mainly use for testing wiki stuff like this and that account did get the notification for that achievement. I also tried clicking on it in the recently completed achievements and I got the same as you did that it goes to Skills hiding the other categories as well as hiding the subcategories of Skills. Idk if you send a bug report, but just have send one. Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 20:44, 18 March 2020 (UTC)
I noticed that one wasn't unlocked for me either. Hadn't tried to complete it yet. Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 20:50, 18 March 2020 (UTC)

Kalphite Queen head[edit source]

I've fixed the capitalisation on the mounted image - do you know if capitalisation also needs to be corrected on the Kalphite queen head (stuffed) and Kalphite queen head pages? Magic logs detail.pngIsobelJTalk page 22:09, 21 March 2020 (UTC)

Re:Transcripts[edit source]

Hi. Consecutive dialogue spoken by the same character is usually combined, according to RuneScape:Style guide/Transcripts#Separating dialogue. This is also the way I usually find it written on the wiki - Habblet (talk) 16:21, 23 March 2020 (UTC)

Yeah, I remember it being combined since some thread that I cannot remember. :Wowee: Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 16:47, 23 March 2020 (UTC)

Level 90 Archaeology requirement for Tirannwn achievements?[edit source]

I just saw this edit. Which Tirannwn achievement requires level 90 Archaeology? Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 06:10, 31 March 2020 (UTC)

Template:While Guthix Sleeps[edit source]

Regarding this edit. The category and template category are already added by Template:Quest navbox. Each (mini)quest navbox uses that template instead of the regular Template:Navbox. Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 16:06, 6 April 2020 (UTC)

Re:Archaeology calculators[edit source]

I've added xp and per xp to all 3 calculators. For digging up the artifacts there's no real meaningful way to include that, the amount of xp gained trying to dig up a given artifact can vary greatly. There is however an excavation calculator in the works that would essentially cover this. For the tetracompass I am completely against including a quarter of the xp, because it also requires further materials etc. We could potentially create another calc table that's just for tetracompass that compares the collections that give pieces and total xp, price etc assuming it's done enough times for 1 complete compass.

Wikian title granted[edit source]

Hi Paul Z, your request for the Wikian title was successful. Please contact Gaz Lloyd on his talk page, in the wiki Discord channel, or in-game (RSN: Gaz_Lloyd) so that he may give you the title.

There was no RSN listed on the nomination, but your userpage says "POH Altar", so I've put that here.
