Hello, Salix7, and welcome to the RuneScape Wiki! Here are a few pages that you might find helpful:

If you have any trouble or need help, feel free to ask questions on my talk page or any other editor's talk page. We hope you like it here and decide to stay! —— Jr Mime (talk) 03:11, January 5, 2014 (UTC)

Why revert?[edit source]

  1. I was requesting a file merge, because you forgot to upload it as a new version.
  2. It's still an obsolete page. There is more to Prifddinas and Spirit trees than the latter being located in the former. Small recharge gem.png AnselaJonla Slayer-icon.png 18:25, September 24, 2014 (UTC)
Okay, but the page already has been edited to add all references for the ability to grow a third Spirit Tree, what is there more to add about the Spirit Tree in Prifddinas? Tell me and I'll add the obsolete template back.

Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 22:07, September 24, 2014 (UTC)

I already added it back and asked someone else to add about the title/reconnecting that tree with his brothers. Small recharge gem.png AnselaJonla Slayer-icon.png 22:09, September 24, 2014 (UTC)
There's a title? I didn't get one. Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 22:12, September 24, 2014 (UTC)

Map Images[edit source]

For images such as [[:File:Eudav location.png|Eudav location]], can you please use this image when marking a specific location to keep with wikia consistency:
dU8byv5.png

Oh, unless of course that image has changed to the one you've used in [[:File:Eudav location.png|Eudav location]], and I'm just unaware of it. Thanks :) Rune14 (talk) 10:25, September 25, 2014 (UTC)

I'm not a master Photoshopper so I can't add that image over the map. Can you? I used the Lletya map as base and then just added a square in Paint. Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 10:31, September 25, 2014 (UTC)

Elven Blood[edit source]

Late response, but Elven Blood is not MAIN music since it only plays within a minigame in a dungeon, not inside the city proper. The other listed tracks can play anywhere in the city. Elven Mother and Elven Elite are similarly omitted, since they only play upstairs in the Tower of Voices and inside the Max Guild. Adventurer's log Wahisietel (Talk) Quest map icon.png 10:51, October 3, 2014 (UTC)

Late response on what? Which page are you refering to? I didn't do anything with Elven Blood. I remember that someone removed this particular songtrack from [[Template:Prifddinas]] and I reverted it. If it is about that, then it still is a song inside Prifddinas. I understand it's only played (and unlocked (that's why I haven't unlocked it yet having 83 in Slayer)) inside the dungeon, but that dungeon is part of Prifddinas. Or is it standard that songs are not included in a template if that song is only available in one part of, in this case, a city. Because songs during quests are also only restricted to areas or moments during that quest. Or do cities and quests have a different standard? Or am I completly missing the point? Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 11:19, October 3, 2014 (UTC)
He was referring to this. IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 11:43, October 3, 2014 (UTC)
Thank you, IP83. Normally I'm spammed about changes to all pages that I follow but I didn't get an email about Prifddinas. Anyways, I get it now, why it's not included there, but on the template it's still good, right? Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 11:47, October 3, 2014 (UTC)
While I'm not really part of the discussion - was just passing through - I don't see a problem with all songs being in the Navbox. IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 11:57, October 3, 2014 (UTC)
They should definitely all be in the template, I agree. Adventurer's log Wahisietel (Talk) Quest map icon.png 14:33, October 3, 2014 (UTC)

Your signature[edit source]

Hi, just want to point out something about custom signatures. As stated on the signatures policy, signatures must be templated, meaning they show up as {{Signatures/Username}} (mine will appear as {{Signatures/AnselaJonla}} for example), and they can only contain two images at most.

The one you used on Talk:Elder seed has 9 images, and was put onto the page as bare code instead of a template. Could you please take steps to bring your signature in compliance with the signature policy?

Congratulations on the 99s and QPC btw. I assume that's what the capes signify. Small recharge gem.png AnselaJonla Slayer-icon.png 13:36, October 3, 2014 (UTC)

I thought it was a template... anyways I changed it and now it only has two images. I didn't know there was a limit. Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 13:41, October 3, 2014 (UTC)
I think I fixed it, I'm not sure though. *Consider this a test* Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 13:43, October 3, 2014 (UTC)
I fixed it! Thank you, Ansela. Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 13:54, October 3, 2014 (UTC)
You're welcome. Glad I could help :) Small recharge gem.png AnselaJonla Slayer-icon.png 14:35, October 3, 2014 (UTC)
I saw on your userpage that you have "AnselaJonla aka Jessi Banda". How did you do that? Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 14:38, October 3, 2014 (UTC)
If you hover over that bit on your own pages you should see an edit button over to the top-right, under the brown bar with your name on. Small recharge gem.png AnselaJonla Slayer-icon.png 14:40, October 3, 2014 (UTC)
Thank you, I found it :) Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 14:44, October 3, 2014 (UTC)

RE[edit source]

It seems to have been discovered. I think it's gone now, but there was a huge pile of people in the Traeharn sector on world 23. There was a raven there, and if you clicked it, you got that message. I'm not sure how to find out where the ravens are, and it seems to be world specific. MolMan 00:28, October 4, 2014 (UTC)

Also, in case you find it hard to swallow: I found this MolMan 00:37, October 4, 2014 (UTC)
I found one south of the most western building at the Iorwerth on world 92 and then when I went checking everywhere else I noticed Seren was on the Iorwerth icon in the Memoriam room while the Voice of Seren was active at the Crwys btw. Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 00:41, October 4, 2014 (UTC)
Interesting. I'm assuming only one raven can be spotted each day (I went to where you said on world 92 and saw nothing anywhere). What I added to the page is the extent of my knowledge. I assume Yuu's fc is still a flurry of speculation. Huge break through, and someone might actually figure this title out soon. MolMan 00:45, October 4, 2014 (UTC)

RE: Title 'Ravensworn' - I am in a friendschat that has dedicated their investigation towards this title ever since the release, and we are more than 100% sure that the ravens only appear on saturday. Nonetheless, we got Mod Raven constantly visiting us too, tomorrow he's going to confirm this even.

Okay, but it's not confirmed at this moment. Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 22:16, October 5, 2014 (UTC)

Elven Clans vs Elven Families[edit source]

I noticed that on a few occasions, you've edited the article on Elven Clans to refer to certain families within the various clans as being clans themselves. While I'm sure you mean well, there is nothing in the game to suggest that these families are considered sub-clans, and unless you can find something to support this terminology, families such as the Edern must be referred to as families. Thanks! (If you choose to respond to this message by editing this page, please leave me a note on my talk page telling me so.) Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 11:51, November 1, 2014 (UTC)

Did I? If I did change it from family to clan I'm sorry. I know they are families within a clan and not a (sub)clan on their own. Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 02:05, November 2, 2014 (UTC)
I just checked all my edits related to the Elven Clans and you need to poke this guy, User:Fswe1, not me. I didn't change any of the families to clans. Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 03:34, November 2, 2014 (UTC)

Talk:Seren stone[edit source]

I didn't even realize that the box typically used for edit summaries on an article page converts to a subject/headline box on a talk page. I always just use the source mode anyway and had manually added a headline. Thanks for fixing the accidental secondary headline. It was supposed to be just an edit summary, so thanks for helping me learn something new.

Also, thanks for looking into whether Quarrymaster actually helps. I look forward to seeing if it does. If so, I'll be buying up 1-4 of that set for some mining fun rather than buying more bank space when I can at the end of the month. I think we'd all appreciate of Jagex added more stuff to the POH costume room or at least to Diango. I doubt anyone really likes this new "destroy forever" option. 184.20.108.19 15:30, November 6, 2014 (UTC)

Hey[edit source]

Good job updating the wiki with the new Prif update :) HaidroH rune.pngEagle feather 3.pngCandle (blood red).png 1XqyDNM.png Crystal triskelion fragment 3.pngHazelmere's signet ring.png 09:30, November 11, 2014 (UTC)

Thank you! You too, keep up the good work :) Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 09:32, November 11, 2014 (UTC)
You've been phenomenal the last couple days (and month, really). You're like my perfect idealized new editor...you even put a summary on each edit? Fantastic. ʞooɔ 10:24, November 12, 2014 (UTC)
Thank you very much! :) Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 10:26, November 12, 2014 (UTC)
You should join us in [[Special:Chat]] some time. ʞooɔ 10:28, November 12, 2014 (UTC)
God damn. I was coming here to same thing and see it's already been done. Thanks for helping. MolMan 12:54, November 12, 2014 (UTC)
You're welcome! :) Thank you for fixing stuff I do wrong. Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 12:55, November 12, 2014 (UTC)
No problem. If you're going to make an article about the clan leaders though, can it be called Elven clan leader? Or something to that effect. Just to signify it's elvish MolMan 12:58, November 12, 2014 (UTC)
I already made it, but it can be renamed. Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 12:59, November 12, 2014 (UTC)
Oph! How did I not see that? Thanks MolMan 13:01, November 12, 2014 (UTC)
Done! :) Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 13:02, November 12, 2014 (UTC)

Gorajo cards[edit source]

The cards from prif city have nothing to do with the ones in sinkholes other than name. I asked several players who have access to them, and noone got one from sinkholes as a reward. Given Jagex's past records, the only reason they share the same name as the sinkholes ones are because ReUseScape. :P --Jlun2 (talk) 13:38, November 14, 2014 (UTC)

Hey, I'm not sure if you're aware, but the Gorajo card page and template have links to the sinkhole version, which isn't exactly related other than by name. Maybe Disambig the card pages and move the original pages to <name> (sinkhole) I guess? --Jlun2 (talk) 13:44, November 14, 2014 (UTC)

Sure, I noticed that too. They could be seperated indeed. Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 13:45, November 14, 2014 (UTC)
That was also the reason I didn't add the Sinkholes template to the Gorajo cards page. Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 13:46, November 14, 2014 (UTC)

Heads up[edit source]

I noticed you added the hefin emotes to the prif template. you might find {{Emote link}} to be your friend. --dDbvitC.pngScuzzy Betahib8CAd.png 19:24, November 14, 2014 (UTC)

Thank you, I didn't know that template existed, because I copied them from Template:Emotes. Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 21:10, November 14, 2014 (UTC)

Anti Aliasing[edit source]

Please crank up Anti Aliasing to x4 when doing any image taking. --dDbvitC.pngScuzzy Betahib8CAd.png 16:14, November 16, 2014 (UTC)

I really have no clue what you're talking about, I don't know anything about anti aliasing. I only add the images so other people will notice these images are missing, so they can add the proper anti aliasing image. Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 19:01, November 16, 2014 (UTC)

Titles[edit source]

Those edits were correct. Please see this forum. MolMan 17:44, November 18, 2014 (UTC)

That link is empty... It only leads to the forums mainpage. Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 17:46, November 18, 2014 (UTC)
Ugh, my bad. QFC: 15-16-20-65514878. Not sure why it got removed when pasting here. MolMan 17:47, November 18, 2014 (UTC)
I see now. Btw I didn't see you were the one that removed it, trolls kept removing it. Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 17:51, November 18, 2014 (UTC)
I understand. I actually expected you to do that too ;) MolMan 17:52, November 18, 2014 (UTC)

Mahogany catapult parts[edit source]

Hey, just a heads up, the name of the item is "mahogany catapult part". We try to have the page names match the item names, even when there are multiple ones by the same name. I moved it back. Great job with the navboxes though. ʞooɔ 05:45, November 19, 2014 (UTC)

Oh, I wanted it to match with the metal catapult parts. It seemed odd the one is plural and the other one not. But I understand. Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 07:48, November 19, 2014 (UTC)
No problem. Also, something you could consider doing is making NPC maps for the Prifddinas NPCs. You'd want to substitute in [[:File:Prifddinas map.png]] for the world map, but it would be pretty easy/useful. ʞooɔ 10:59, November 19, 2014 (UTC)
Maybe when I'm done making the templates for Regicide (work in progress) and Roving Elves (not started yet). Although I'm not that good with images. I should be able to make some maps :P. Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 14:21, November 19, 2014 (UTC)

Re: Player Examine[edit source]

Thanks. It took a for more revisions than I would have liked but it's good now. :) Ryan PM 14:17, November 19, 2014 (UTC)

Disambig[edit source]

Disambiguations are meant for navigation. So they shouldn't contain anything other than a list of terms. If you want to expand the information on a page beyond being a navigation tool, that's fine. But unless that's the case, it shouldn't contain any other templates. MolMan 20:15, November 21, 2014 (UTC)

They already contained the disambiguation template when I added the templates. They're gone now, aren't they? Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 20:40, November 21, 2014 (UTC)
I'm sorry, can you clarify what exactly you mean? MolMan 20:43, November 21, 2014 (UTC)
I'm not even sure what you mean in your initial message... But what I meant was that you removed the disambig template where I added stuff which caused it to be more then just a navigation page with a list. Not sure if you meant this. Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 21:35, November 21, 2014 (UTC)
Yes. Your edit to River for example. It's best to keep disambig pages bare. We want readers spending as little time on them as possible. Get in, find the page you were actually looking for, get out. MolMan 21:37, November 21, 2014 (UTC)
I understand that now, but I like to link stuff to each other, maybe the rivers were a bridge to far. *pun intended* Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 21:39, November 21, 2014 (UTC)
Disambigs are for terms that could be confused, rather than stuff that's all related. So anything that's in a template that could arguably be appropriate, would go on the disambig page itself, rather than a template on the page. Easier for the reader if everything is right there in a list. Could be confusing if any of the navigation is randomly in a template at the bottom. MolMan 21:49, November 21, 2014 (UTC)
Why are you still going on about it? I got the message when you removed the rivers template at the rivers article. That I shouldn't add actual templates to a disambig page. What's the problem? There was no need to even start this Disambig convo. I don't go cry when somebody edits my edits. It usually is an improvement or just a mutual misunderstanding. You changed it, no problem. But I hate repitition, so just stop. Your point got well accross. Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 22:25, November 21, 2014 (UTC)
I didn't mean it like that. You just sounded like you needed one last point. Jesus Christ, man. MolMan 22:27, November 21, 2014 (UTC)

Now there are other rivers! ʞooɔ 10:23, November 22, 2014 (UTC)

Elven clan herald link[edit source]

If the only reason for this edit was to re-include the link to the Elven clan herald page, it is a little redundant. The Otheruses at the top of the article already links to it, which is the main reason why I removed it (aside from the pending discussion in Yew Grove). IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 18:49, November 25, 2014 (UTC)

What is Yew Grove? Sorry, but I relinked it at the Hefin herald too, you may revert that as well. :( Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 18:50, November 25, 2014 (UTC)
Will do. And Yew Grove is the wikia's version of a forum to discuss policy matters for this wikia. I was referring to this one in specific. IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 18:53, November 25, 2014 (UTC)
Wiki*. Not wikia. Bad IP, bad. MolMan 18:55, November 25, 2014 (UTC)

Maps[edit source]

Hey, thanks for posting on my talk page :) It's always nice to know someone is appreciating the efforts you're making. It seems you're making plenty of edits yourself :) Keep up the good work and feel free to message me if you need anything. Thanks, Magic logs detail.pngIsobelTalk page 22:39, November 25, 2014 (UTC)

I don't think I'm going to have time to do those images in the next couple of days. If you want you can try doing them yourself (they're not that hard to do) in the meantime :) Magic logs detail.pngIsobelTalk page 19:23, November 26, 2014 (UTC)
It's okay, it was just a suggestion, no rush. I would try, but I suck at Photoshop and I don't think Paint would do the job. Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 19:26, November 26, 2014 (UTC)

Elf Name AKAs[edit source]

Hi! If the AKA is already in the lead paragraph, it's unnecessary to also make a whole parameter for it in the infobox. All that does it clutter the infobox up and we like to keep that short and sweet. Thanks! ɳex undique 19:42, November 26, 2014 (UTC)

You do say it's an AKA. And I said before that's what the parameter is for. One parameter more won't clutter the infobox. And it's info, so why not add it to it? Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 20:07, November 26, 2014 (UTC)
We've had problems with excessive AKAs in the past and this addition doesn't bring much for the clutter that it creates. ɳex undique 20:12, November 26, 2014 (UTC)
One AKA is not excessive... and if it can't be in the top of the infobox and its only location is in the header. I'm afraid someone random will remove it and that it won't get readded. That's my concern. Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 20:40, November 26, 2014 (UTC)
The header (lead paragraph?) is good enough, that's one of the first things that readers look at. My concern is that it's trivia and when people want quick info on him (by looking at the infobox) it'll be unnecessarily longer. ɳex undique 20:42, November 26, 2014 (UTC)
Yeah lead paragraph, I thought you said header >.< I'm remain concerned it's a fragile fact which can be lost. :( Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 20:52, November 26, 2014 (UTC)
Trust me, no facts are lost on this wiki :) We literally catalogue everything haha. I'm sure their names won't get lost. ɳex undique 20:55, November 26, 2014 (UTC)
If you say so. I'll guard it with my (virtual) life anyways. :P Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 20:59, November 26, 2014 (UTC)

Release and update[edit source]

Feel more than free to add those parameters to pretty much any infobox (stuff like Bonuses and Recipe don't need it) without asking. They're very valuable parameters. MolMan 15:46, November 27, 2014 (UTC)

Okay :) I won't add it to everything :P I realise bonuses and recipes do not require it. But stuff as items, hunter objects and summoning familiars should have it though. (only familiars don't have it yet) Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 15:56, November 27, 2014 (UTC)

Hoi[edit source]

Hoi, nog een Nederlander, leuk.

Anyway, I noticed that you had made some changes to Template:Auras. Don't put more effort into it: I'm replacing it (User:Oil4/Auras). All that's left to do is to move the templates over and move a bunch of images over to standardised names. I can't do this yet because I need to be home to use AWB to replace all the links to 'em.

Just thought I'd let you know. Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 15:17, December 1, 2014 (UTC)

Hoi andere Nederlander. :)
Yeah, I was done with that Template. I added aura to all names (links) and I also added alts without the word aura. But I guess you're right about those images, those are without the word aura (most of them atleast). Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 15:23, December 1, 2014 (UTC)
Btw, just so you know, a lot of people prefer if you leave a message on their talk, so that they get a notification instead of having to check your talk ;) Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 09:46, December 2, 2014 (UTC)
Okay, but don't you automatically get subscribed to pages you change? I'm still subscribed to some talk pages of people I left messages at their talk pages. Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 09:50, December 2, 2014 (UTC)
That may depend on your personal preferences. I know that the only pages I automatically follow are pages I have created, or pages of which I created the Talk page. IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 10:30, December 2, 2014 (UTC)

Hi, could you tag things like this as minor? That allows it to be filtered out of the recent changes. You can go to your preferences and set every edit to be minor by default, or click the box every time. Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 09:17, December 4, 2014 (UTC)

Navboxes[edit source]

When you add them, how are you getting your list of pages to edit? MolMan 15:34, December 4, 2014 (UTC)

If you mean this list, I'm using DPL. Feel free to look at the code of that page. Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 15:37, December 4, 2014 (UTC)
I mean after creating a navbox. How do you get the list of pages to add it to? I have some stuff that makes it a lot easier if you're interested. MolMan 15:39, December 4, 2014 (UTC)
Also, I am pro DPLer, just sayin. MolMan 15:39, December 4, 2014 (UTC)
Oh! I'm a noob DPLer btw. I use the category of the quest in question and then check with DPL if anything that uses the template is on the template and vice versa. Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 15:41, December 4, 2014 (UTC)
That last part sounds similar to what I was going to give you: User talk:Riblet15#Template:Invlink. Also, regarding your sandbox: [[Template:EW4 cubes]] and [[Template:Vortex]] are two bad quest related templates I made that you can add to your list of "to expand/etc" ;)

RFD and navboxes[edit source]

Thanks for finishing up putting the RFD navboxes on the articles. I had been thinking for a long time about how that navbox should work after splitting the subquests off, but I think what you did makes good sense. It's always nice to see your name show up so often in recent changes helping with the navboxes. Riblet15 22:54, December 4, 2014 (UTC)

navboxes[edit source]

Hi :) Firstly, I want to add my appreciation to the growing list above, you're doing a fantastic job with the navboxes. If we hadn't have scrapped RS:UOTM you'd likely have won it by now.

Secondly, as you've been working with navboxes so much, I wondered if you had any thoughts about how easy they are to create and maintain? I'm thinking of completely overhauling them to be more inline with modern web standards (i.e. not nested tables) and thought it might be an ideal time to address any issues they might have in terms of usage. cqm 00:33, 5 Dec 2014 (UTC) (UTC)

Thank you! :) After making (and editing) so many of them I find them quite easy in terms of usage. :P I can't think of anything atm. Plus I'm not that familiar with web standards and stuff, because I'm a not a web developer, but just a regular software developer. :P Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 00:49, December 5, 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the notice, I figured you'd reply here anyway :)
Out of interest, what sort of things are you used to working on? Also, are you interested in having a go with some of the coding on the wiki? cqm 01:11, 5 Dec 2014 (UTC) (UTC)
Working on in terms of software development or here on the wiki? And neh, I'll stick to quest (and Prifddinas) navbox templates for now. Maybe in the future. Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 01:14, December 5, 2014 (UTC)
In terms of software development. I'm looking to start a computer science degree next year and was curious what sort of things software development includes (from the perspective of someone who does it for a living). cqm 01:31, 5 Dec 2014 (UTC) (UTC)
I'm not done with my studies yet. I'm currently doing my final internship and when I pass that and *not sure what the term is in English* when I defend* my thesis against my teachers etc. I'll be able to call myself a Bachelor of IT. :) But what I can tell of actual development based on this internship and a previous internship, the company sets a goal to achieve (f.i. a new release of some product). And then after concepting, development and testing, it's going to be released. Much like RuneScape actually (it's a computer program after all too :P).

Was that version F2P yet? Didn't they release the new version when the quest was made F2P?

Thanks, I'm still working on it so you don't have to know the name of the shard, just the skill :). Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 10:14, December 11, 2014 (UTC)
So the "s" param (which is for the shard won't be needed anymore). "shard" param is used for if you have the shard btw, not the shard itself. Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 10:16, December 11, 2014 (UTC)
"shard" is used for shard name now and "gotshard" is used if you don't have it. Still trying to make it so that you won't have to know the name of the shard so you can just enter the skill. But that isn't working yet >.< Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 14:00, December 11, 2014 (UTC)
Would I be allowed to work on that if you haven't figured it out in the meantime?

You may cut it from Sandbox2 and empty that page. You can make a subpage of /SkillAchievement. Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 15:57, December 11, 2014 (UTC)
[[User:Salix/SkillAchievement/shard]] I think that works. A switch statement is a large collection of if-statements like you did in your sandbox, except a lot more compact and easier to write.

Navbox categories[edit source]

I'm giving you this message because you do a lot of navboxes

From now on, when creating navboxes, can you switch from using

{{Mainonly|[[Category:...}}

to

{{ctg|Category 1|...}}

A few quick examples of what I mean are:

Right now, the template is simple in its functions, but I have several plans in mind to expand it beyond this, and make it a very versatile categorization tool.

I'm only giving you this initial message (and also hoping that you will actually take notice and comply). If you'd like to keep up with the updates to the module, you can periodically check the documentation at Template:Category handler/doc. And if you have any questions, you can always leave me a message on the template's talk or on mine. MolMan 18:58, December 20, 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for the notice. :) I will remember to use the new template when I'll make new nav templates and when I edit one I'll replace the old one. Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 21:13, December 20, 2014 (UTC)

small navbox thing[edit source]

Hi, I don't know if you've done this recently but in this edit you add in some subgroup parameters: https://runescape.wiki/w/Template:Missing,_Presumed_Death?diff=11858695&oldid=11644081 It's only supposed to have gtype=subgroup when the thing inside the group is going to be another navbox. For the interior navbox it's just supposed to have subgroup=yes and not gtype. A better example of what I mean is how it shows it on Template:Navbox#Sub-groups. It still works when it's not done this way but the spacing doesn't show up the way it's supposed to. thanks Riblet15 22:50, December 20, 2014 (UTC)

I was asking myself what the difference was between the two. I probably added those because the spacing looked off. Apparently that changed. Thanks for telling me the difference :) Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 00:06, December 21, 2014 (UTC)
