Shakroth[edit source]

Do you know where the term Shakroth came from? I can't find any references to it anywhere. NeutralinoTalk?This is a pale wisp. 17:23, 12 August 2019 (UTC)

I suspected that it was from a livestream! I actually asked this same question on the demon template article's talk page, but didn't get an answer until now. Thanks! NeutralinoTalk?This is a pale wisp. 23:56, 12 August 2019 (UTC)

RE:Black mask[edit source]

Is there any source for the black mask to be Xau-Tak's symbol? Talk to Kelsey 01:40, 29 August 2019 (UTC)

This is speculation, many things could be the symbol. Unless there's anything official, I'm going to remove it. Talk to Kelsey 01:58, 29 August 2019 (UTC)
What're the references you're talking about? Talk to Kelsey 01:59, 29 August 2019 (UTC)
I'm aware the mask is associated with Xau-Tak, but there's nothing saying that it's its official symbol. Talk to Kelsey 02:10, 29 August 2019 (UTC)

Pig like creatures[edit source]

Regarding your reverts to Template:Pig-like creatures, it may not be explicitly stated in the style guide, but is bad form and provides unnecessary strain on the servers. I should know - I used to do it too. dDbvitC.pngScuzzy Betahib8CAd.png 01:31, 1 October 2019 (UTC)

Recent edits[edit source]

Hello, I was hoping I could check in with some of your previous edits that attempt to utilise the style guide for editing in a way that shouldn't really be used, such as this. Disagreeing with the way somebody edits an article or template is not something you should fight over, as this would violate RuneScape:Ownership in that policing edits to a certain topic or concept is more inhibitive than helpful. Further, I'd like to point out that said user in the linked edit is a long-time editor and an administrator on our joint-sister site, the Old Schoold RuneScape Wiki.

One last point is aggressively trying to use editing styleguides and policies to help yourself police edits would also fall under RuneScape:Gaming the system, which is a no-no. I'm referring specifically to attempting to use the 'good faith' policy and the 'three-revert rule' policy to prevent your edits from being modified.

Trust me, I can focus on topics like a laser myself when it comes to editing, and I've made a few templates like 'pig-like' in my spare time (Personally, I'd disagree to linking Tuska and especially the Airut, being somewhat but not fully based on pigs (especially being otherworldly and Airut being sideways-mouthed minotaurs)). You're interested in adding to the wiki and we could always use people like that, just know when to yield to other users and accept feedback.

Open up and ask others for opinions on how to edit something in a way you feel would work out the best. We're here to help make the wiki better too. Feel free to leave us messages on our talk page if you need any more help with editing or any clarification. Achievements Coelacanth0794 Talk Contribs 01:45, 2 October 2019 (UTC)

Moving pages[edit source]

Hey, I see ye tried moving a page by copypasting the contents of one page onto another. I've undone this. The proper way of moving a page is using Special:MovePage which lets us transfer the page's edit history, talk page and subpages quickly. I've also sorted out the page links (found via Special:WhatLinksHere) so that all pages that linked to genie now link to the proper page Ciphrius Kane (talk) 00:03, 4 October 2019 (UTC)

What are ye trying here? Ciphrius Kane (talk) 01:29, 4 October 2019 (UTC)
That's cause it's a redirect [1]. My guess is ye were going to create a blank talk page, like Template talk:Fremennik, and I'm wondering why Ciphrius Kane (talk) 10:36, 4 October 2019 (UTC)

Vote in the Weird Gloop elections![edit source]

Hi Ppizzo278!

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 01:08, 23 December 2019 (UTC)

Thank you so much for nominating me and all the help :) Ppizzo278 (talk) 20:55, 15 September 2021 (UTC)

Chatheads[edit source]

Hi - I just reverted because the transparency needs redoing. It's kinda fizzy - maybe you made too many selections with the image being so small? I was also confused by [[:File:Elven Knight chathead.png]] and where the chathead was from because its so large and I couldn't work out what NPC it was from. I thought it was from the elven knights but it doesn't look they actually have chatheads? Magic logs detail.pngIsobelTalk page 10:34, 29 October 2021 (UTC)

Hey, just notifying you that I've deleted the Elven Knight and Cadarn ranger chatheads for not belonging to the NPCs. Habblet (talk|c) 00:04, 30 October 2021 (UTC)

Understood, thank you. Ppizzo278 (talk) 21:51, 30 October 2021 (UTC)

Navigation Box[edit source]

Hey. While I understand what the idea is and agree that the EGWD navbox isn't specifically the cathedral navbox, most of the time we actually use navboxes to include this miscellaneous substance, including specific NPCs that can be found in a location etc. While it's debatable what should actually be in the EGWD navbox, the general idea is that it should include the aspects of the dungeon that are not exclusive to any of the fronts and already included in their navboxes - which in this case happens to be largely the same as what's in the catheral. For example Azzanadra is now part of the Glacor Front and is linked there, so there isn't any reason to have him in the main EGWD navbox just because other gods are there. Similarly Wahisietel is not part of any of the fronts but is part of the dungeon and should not be removed. I don't see an issue with listing the factions that are in the dungeon separately, but they shouldn't replace the specific NPCs found there, i.e. guard captains. Additionally there are no NPCs called Cadarn ranger or Iorwerth warrior - they might be them lore-wise, but NPCs are simply called Elven Knight and since they are all on one page, that page should be linked only once in the navbox. The last issue are the chatheads - we use chathads in navbox when NPC either uses them in this particular content or when they have one in another piece of content (although the latter practice varies). However some of the chatheads you added simply don't exist in the game and I assume are based on player character wearing the same outfits, which is not something we practice. Overall, I can see what your intentions were, but I'm not sure that navbox is a good place for it. Perhaps you could add that information to the EGWD article using Template:Infobox Battle, similarly to how it's done here for example. Navboxes are usually more game oriented than lore oriented (unless they are specifically lore related navboxes) and information regarding factions etc. seem better suited for the actual article, which currently doesn't have that info listed.
