Page history[edit source]

I saw you posted on the forums that you can't find the history of pages. Like you, I had this problem for about a week then finally found it. Under the first header (the name of the page), you will see a small grey box that does the whole length of the page. To the complete left of the box are written the words "Edited by <user here> X hours/days ago". What you want to do is put your cursor on that for about 0.5 seconds, where an additional 5 edits will shown. At the end of that little box with the last 6 edits are made, it will be written "View Full History". Just click on that and you're all set!

I tried that, but it doesn't seem to work for userpages, including this page. --Tharkon 04:54, November 23, 2010 (UTC)
In general, please reply on the other user's page instead of your own :)
Try editing a page and you'll see in the URL something like "action=edit" or "action=edit&section=2" or something like that. Just replace that with "action=history". Ablm578Talk 05:01, November 23, 2010 (UTC)
Oh yes, I forgot, it won't work for certain pages (such as user pages). A quicker alternative to the one written above is to add ?action=history to the end of the page name. So if you wanted to view the history of the gold bar page, the full URL would be Quest point cape.pngTalk Newbie856 edit count Nomad guideMusic icon.png 02:23, November 24, 2010 (UTC)

Recent Changes:Spork[edit source]


I noticed that your recent edit to spork contained some false information.

I would like to remind you trhat any false or misleading info posted on any of the site's page is considered vandalism. I have reverted your edit, and must tell you to refrain from editing Spork with those changes again.

Moving Images[edit source]

Hi, I noticed you asked a question about moving files. If there is ever an image you need to move, use Template:M. All the instructions for how (and where) to use it can be found on that page. Thanks! Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 19:31, February 16, 2011 (UTC)

If you have a good reason to move the files not listed under the criteria, request it anyway. We have a policy of using common sense, in that regard. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 20:05, February 16, 2011 (UTC)

RE:RuneCost[edit source]

Hello. Thanks for your response on the dungeoneering talk page, but that wasn't really what I was asking. What I was asking was if it was more efficient to get a floor done as fast as possible and just get the boss killed or do everything and try to max out XP. Thanks.

signature[edit source]

Your current sig is very well made! but I have to say, estetically I liked your previous one better ;) . . . Yours, This user admires the Void Knights. Who aim to maintain Gielinor's Equilibrium. Enquidou Talk This user likes to do Quests and genuinely loves the story line; lore is his love! . . 17:21, September 10, 2011 (UTC)


Yes, I made it, but I find using placeholder better than value, as value would make the text be a default value of the input and clicking it would require selecting it all and then pressing delete or backspace to clear it, while placeholder would clear it at the moment of clicking. This is more user friendly, and this is not the problem that breaks IE. IE does not support the :checked selector for CSS, while this is the selector that makes the code work. The tabs and the table header to be clicked to (un)collapse the table are all <label>s for inputs which are hidden from view. Clicking one of the headers activates one of the radio buttons, and automatically disables the other radio button that is selected. Using .tabs input#googler[type="radio"]:checked ~ form#googles {display:block} for the google search bar for example would make input#googler (the radio button for the google tab, when it is selected) display the form#googles (the google search bar form) display as a block. Using the same code for all 4 tabs, a selected radio button un-hides the respective form, while it unchecks the other radio buttons, so it hides all other forms. The same system is used for the collapsible table, but then with a checkbox. Checking the box shows the table (also using :checked selector) and unchecking it hides the table (except for the first table row, which has a <label> which allows showing the rest of the table again). So tl;dr: Internet Explorer does not support the important selector that makes the entire thing work, so fixing the placeholder -> value would be on expense of functionality, while it wouldn't fix anything in IE. Thanks for giving advice though Ok JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 16:29, September 11, 2011 (UTC)

Silly me[edit source]

Thanks for reverting my edit to Joey's clan ring page. As it turns out, I mixed up my Fletching and Crafting levels when adding data, and the new icons don't help at all. My Fletching icon was just above Crafting and it was 83. In the future I'll either watch my levels carefully with RuneScript or just not add data for Crafting. Wink

re:Clan Ring[edit source]

I'm quite sure. I think Jagex changed the formulas for the clan ring experience then. I'll check again asap, but if they did indeed change the formulas, that means we'd have to start all over again. Maybe I could ask helm to advertise it a bit more on his raffle page though. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 14:42, March 8, 2012 (UTC)

My Edits on Your Userpage[edit source]

Those edits existed in order to remove those pages from the Wanted files. You see, in the Wanted Files section, there are a lot of images that were used in user boxes. When the images were moved, the images in the userboxes broke. When I fixed the links in the userboxes, your boxes had the images fixed, but the images still showed up in the Wanted Files. My usage of <!-- --> was a quick, non-damaging way to fix the broken image links. Sorry for any confusion! Blaze_fire.png12.png 20:05, May 6, 2012 (UTC)

re:Droplogs[edit source]

Thanks for reporting it. I've fixed it now, so it should work again. If no kills are logged, it will still show 1, as I can't make it 0. If it's 0, it would get divide by 0 errors. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 07:49, May 30, 2012 (UTC)

RS:SIG/R[edit source]

Ah, thanks! I made him a trapezium using the :before and :after pseudoclasses, and then remembered embedding CSS means editing Common/Wikia.css, something that obviously wasn't allowed for a signature. Also, you have a good point - why don't we always leave 1 request when archiving, to serve as a model for people making new requests?

P.S. - since you're quite big in the signature making industry community, you might want to have a bash at making my sig look more awesome than everyone else could; just click the link in it! Noobcaek ROBBENhulkOil4 I made this 15:25, June 9, 2012 (UTC)

Spoiler alerts[edit source]

Umm, why are you recreating the template? cqm 20:54,27/6/2012 (UTC) (UTC)
Please do not add the spoiler alert template back. It is no longer in use, per the forum cited above. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 20:58, June 27, 2012 (UTC)

Stop it. Now. The template was deleted. --Andorin (Talk) (Contribs) 21:07, June 27, 2012 (UTC)

When someone tells you something, you need to listen to it. You were told multiple times that the spoiler template was removed from the wiki as the result of a community discussion. This means you are not allowed to recreate it without overturning that discussion. Also, I suggest that you read RS:3RR and figure out why it's a bad idea to revert someone's edits over and over. --Andorin (Talk) (Contribs) 21:14, June 27, 2012 (UTC)

Template:Attack_speed_bar[edit source]

I know it seems strange to have the slowest attack speed at an interval at 7.2 seconds... but this is what I calculated. Me calculating this is far more accurate than your assumption. I appreciate your effort towards seeing the pattern, however Jagex has made it every 7.2 seconds for some strange reason. I tested this with a dark bow. If there is another "slowest" speed weapon you have in mind, I can be sure to test the interval with that weapon. As per the 7.2 seconds... it didn't seem right, so I re-tested/re-calculated it again. Same thing. Then I said okay there's no way... This time I did a 5 minute test, same exact thing. I'm not sure whether or not this is a glitch, but that was the number I got. Hailfire boots.png Bren 19:10, November 26, 2012 (UTC)

Uh yes... dark bow definitely is slowest speed. The interval is 7.2 seconds. Unless you can test it yourself and prove to me otherwise, then my test is 1,000% more accutate than your little assumption. Please do not change it unless you have actually tested it.

RE:Spawn map[edit source]

Hi Tharkon, the map should be accurate to within a few pixels of the actual clue borders given by Chuck or Larry and all have been confirmed in-game. I did exaggerate on Sophanem for artistic purposes, as the clue boarder would likely run along the south wall of the town and not affect any penguins inside it. After the Divination update we did check out the new areas. The bit of land west of Castle Wars was confirmed to be a "Somewhere in RuneScape" hint. The bit of land east of the Mage Training Arena and West of Mort Myre still consists of the "bloodsuckers" clue too. I have been waiting on a confirmation if the area south of Sophanem is indeed "Somewhere in RuneScape" as I expect it to be before I finalized the update to the map on my end and upload it.

Thanks for the information and tests, though it might be better to put that data/experience on a talk page of a relevant article, so perhaps the whole community that is interested can chip in. That said, I'm not sure where that'd be xD . I just wanted to point out an edit I remember seeing, before all store-related money making guides received the same talk page comment :P .
