Re:Sysopping[edit source]

Thankyou very much. I will use my rights to the good of the wiki (well, some of the time (joking)). Thankyou for the message. I haven't been able to reply sooner because I've been on holiday. And yes, "Chicken7" is registered by me. Chicken7 >talk 23:45, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

Rollback right[edit source]

Can you give me the rollback right so I can revert vandalism more easily? Swordmagic24 20:41, 5 July 2008 (UTC)

Picked a bad time[edit source] be sysopped, that is. I've suddenly got a ton more going on in my life (hence my recent inactivity) and I don't think I'm going to be able to contribute quite as much as I could a couple weeks ago. I'm pretty sure it's etiquette in this case to request de-opping, so here I am doing so. If you need to de-op me since I'm going to be relatively MIA, then I'm giving my consent; if not, well, at least you know I won't be around as much. --Andorin (Talk) (Contribs) 22:39, 5 July 2008 (UTC)

The New Era has arrived![edit source]

Hello! Yes, I bet you remember me, and before you do anything rash, I just wanted to come and formally apologize for my shenanigans back about a week and a half ago, with the proxies and such. I was trying to be a showman, and I guess I failed pretty hard. Well, all that matters is I'm here (debuted as I said I would, 8/7/2008). So yeah, just wanted to apologize and hope all is forgiven. I give you my word that I am a good editor, and not a proxy using shenanigan-making person. Daedryon talkcontribs07:17, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

hay can i nom u[edit source]

I was wondering if you'd like to be nominated for User of the Month. It'll go something like this:

Skill is a very very very very nice editor. He makes lots of contributions, and know lots of things about stuff. He has helped move decision processes along, and even got some things going, like making a VfD for User of the Month. He said something people about being mean and superior in it, so I think he knows what he's talking about. vote 4 skill

Transparency Problems[edit source]

There have been problems with images with transparencies because the transparent areas are black instead of see-through whenever they are resized. Is there a way to fix that problem? Helm of neitiznot (charged).png User BM - Bounty Hunter [ talk | contribs ] Zamorak godsword.png

a Licension?[edit source]

Hey, I've been asked by a member of the Slovak Wikia if they could have a licension for our pictures. Do you know what to do? I dont know why he asked me, maybe because I uploaded alot of pictures in the past? Amaurice told me that you might know what to do.

New Site[edit source]

Hi, I dont know weather or not you are the right person to tell this too but... I currently own the site I am also a user on runescape. How would your wiki like to move into my server? For example, it will go from to The good thing about moving to my server is: All bureaucrats on the site will have access to the server so they can add extensions, add custom skins, and do other things. My site has unlimited disk space and broadband space. Unlike this site, on the new runescape site would have limited advertisement....look at to see how it would look like. Oh yea and there are extensions on MW that would make moving the site easy. For example, there is an extension where the computer will import all the users from this site to the new site. And MW has this tool that will import pages from this site to the new one. Tell me what you and your colleagues think about it so I can set it up. I am also going to post this on other bureaucrat pages on this wiki for a faster response. Regards, --Truetech 22:22, 15 August 2008 (UTC)

Hi Skill, thanks for the advice, although I do find it easier to upload images individually when I'm doing transparency. And for getting rid of that annoying vandal who was flaming me, I'd like to award you with a scrumptious Helper Cookie EDITORSCOOKIE.png

Template:ExchangeItem[edit source]

I've noticed that you used {{REVISIONTIMESTAMP}} for classifying the Exchange pages into categories. This value could be inaccurate, as the pages may be revised by vandals without the price being updated.

I have now created a working Template:DateDiff (Template:DATEDIFF was deleted by Christine on 4 July 2008), which can used to calculate the difference between 2 different dates. I have taken the liberty to display the number of days since the last price update (on a particular Exchange page), based on the {{{DATE}}} value. This will also alert the "price updater" not to only update the price, but the dates too.

Now, shall I rectify the category classifications too, or will you do it for me?   az talk   07:29, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

I need a clarification: which was messy? Template:DateDiff or the code in Template:ExchangeItem? The DateDiff caused problems in the large GEMW pages (Pre-expand size too large).   az talk   15:12, 11 September 2008 (UTC)
I didn't use DateDiff and {{#time: }} works. All Exchange articles and GEMW pages now display the "Number of days since the last update". Transcluding the DateDiff template seemed to have caused the "Pre-expand" problem. I'm leaving the category classifications as it is, since I don't get the logic of the expression (too many {{{{s and }}}}s). I was thinking, do we actually need that many sub-categories? Hmm... Anyway, thanks!   az talk   15:55, 11 September 2008 (UTC)

I was looking through the sub-categories, and would like to make some changes to the current coding:

  • Do away with "1 day" and "3 days", since almost all Exchange items come under these categories, and serves no purpose. We don't have the resources or the manpower to update all the pages every single day.
  • Sub-categorise should be based on: "1 week" and "1 month"
  • The category name should be shortened: "Needs price updates" ("GE articles needing price updates" is a mouthful.)

This expression: {{#switch: {{#expr: ({{#time:z|{{CURRENTTIMESTAMP}}}}-{{#time:z|{{{Date}}}}}+365*({{#time:Y|{{CURRENTTIMESTAMP}}}}-{{#time:Y|{{{Date}}}}})+3)/7 round 0 }}|0=Today|1=Within 1 week|2|3|4=Within 1 month|More than 1 month}}

  • returns "Today" - if the "date" is the same as today
  • returns "Within 1 week" for Days 1-7 (Week 1)
  • returns "Within 1 month" for Days 8-28 (Week 2, 3 and 4)
  • returns "More than 1 month" for Days 29+ (Week 5+)

The sub-categories code can be inserted accordingly. What do you think? It's much shorter than the current code...   az talk   14:15, 13 September 2008 (UTC)

Okay, thanks for the info.   az talk   20:17, 13 September 2008 (UTC)

Done! Whew.. that was my biggest project ever. I was worried that I would screw up the Exchange pages. But, I didn't. After the server refreshes, could you please remove the old category, Category:GE articles needing price updates, and its sub-categories. Thanks.   az talk   21:34, 13 September 2008 (UTC)

Template:Skill minimum rank[edit source]

I'm very glad to see that my template has been considered to be useful. The comment you have left on the template, "removing experience per yew grove", confuses me though because I can't find any discussion on the Yew Grove or anywhere else. I'm not disagreeing with your change, merely interested to see what has been said about the template... I will try to change the template (in my sandbox) a bit more: I think the word "approximately" can be removed (using an if statement) when the level is 2,000,000.

No, I'm not that experienced with Wikia myself yet unfortunately. I suppose you're thinking along the lines of the GE database solution?    For Camelot!  Zang! talk  My health! 18:53, 14 September 2008 (UTC)

Additions to Mediawiki:Common.js[edit source]

I would like to propose some additions to [[Mediawiki:Common.js]].

  • For the Custom Edit buttons, to speed up loading time:
    • if (wgAction == "edit" || wgAction == "submit") // Code specific to editing pages { /***** Custom edit buttons *****/ }
  • For the AJAX auto-refresh feature, add the Special:Log.
    • ajaxPages="Special:Recentchanges,Special:Watchlist,Special:Log";

Thanks in advance.   az talk   16:44, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

Rollback Rights[edit source]

Skill- Recently I have been turning my attention towards reverting vandalism on the RuneScape wiki, but I have been frustrated by my inability to revert multiple edits at once and the time it takes for me to revert vandalism. For this reason would like to have rollback rights on the Runescape wiki, to help make my life easier, and the wiki better. If you have any questions/comments, please contact me on my talk page!

AJAX Watch - Mediawiki:Common.js[edit source]

This line: if (ajaxPages.indexOf(wgPageName)!=-1) addOnloadHook(preloadAJAXRC); in [[Mediawiki:Common.js]] appears to add Auto-refresh to articles such as Watch and Log (Log without the "s"). This is because "Watch" and "Log" triggers the OnloadHook as the "indexOf" is not "-1".

Can this line be revised to match "wgPageName" against individual items within "ajaxPages"? (ajaxPages="Special:RecentChanges,Special:Watchlist,Special:Log";).

Possible solution:

  • Split the string based on commas, and add them into an array.
  • Loop through the array to check if "wgPageName" matches.

This way the code will only add Auto-refresh to specific pages, rather than pages such as "Watch", "Log", and who knows what else.   az talk   15:06, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

UnRuneScape[edit source]

You'll probably know that there are no active admins or beaurocrats on the Wiki, and I am easily the most active user there. There has been alot of vandalsim recently, and someone needs to be able to deal with it. Basically, I'm asking you to make me an sysop. I would go through the correct procedure on the Community Portal, but the Wiki is almost dead; nothing would happen.

If you could just message me about it on my talk page, I'd appreciate it alot. Thanks. Pig House. 29 October, 10:54am.

AJAX feature[edit source]

Hi. I was wondering if you could help me setup the AJAX feature on the RuneScape Clans Wiki. I've tried to tinkle with it on the MediaWiki:Common.js page, but I just can't get it to work.
