Welcome![edit source]


Hello, Xsdvd, and welcome to the RuneScape Wiki!

Thank you for taking an interest in our wiki. If you have any trouble or need help, feel free to ask questions on my talk page. You can also look at a help page or shout out on the local forums. We hope you like it here and decide to stay!

Here are a few pages to help out new editors such as yourself:

When leaving comments on talk pages, please sign your name by using four tildes (~~~~) or the "sign" button (Signature button.png) above the edit box. This will automatically produce your name and the date. Signing your comments is important, as it lets other editors know who has posted which comments.

Again, welcome! Iiii I I I 13:55, February 15, 2010 (UTC)

Your edit[edit source]


I undone your edit which undid my edit. The reason I did that edit was the HP -> LP conversion, which caused the percentage to be multiplied by 10.

Thank you. bad_fetustalk 17:22, March 24, 2010 (UTC)

Okay, I'll show you what I mean. The percentage when hp was there was calculated by HP/Ranged Level. The new formula is LP/Ranged Level. As LP = HP * 10, the new percentage is HP*10/Ranged level, therefore the percantage is multiplied by 10. Thanks, bad_fetustalk 14:15, March 25, 2010 (UTC)

Re:Signature[edit source]

Okay, here's what you want to do:

1) Go to your preferences page.

2) About midway down the page you should see a section that says "Signature:" has a text box, and a custom signature check box.

3) You will want to check the custom signature box.

4) Now put {{Nosubst|Signatures/Xsdvd}} in the text box above the custom signature check box.

5) Click save page, now when you use ~~~~, it should produce your signature.

Leave me a message on my talk page, if you need any more help. HaloTalk 16:45, March 25, 2010 (UTC)

Yep, yep, just glad I could help. HaloTalk 16:54, March 25, 2010 (UTC)

Warning Vandals[edit source]

Hello, please make sure that you warn vandals after you revert vandalism by them. This is pretty easy; all you need to do is put {{subst:test3}} on their talk page after serious vandalism, or {{subst:test1}} on their page after very minor vandalism. Thanks, ajr 18:05, June 3, 2010 (UTC)

:<[edit source]

I was about to remove that vandalism. But you removed it before I could... :( Nagoid 15:55, June 7, 2010 (UTC)

Lol don't worry. And you got 99 edits. *gives editing skillcape*

Please fix your signature[edit source]

Hello, I've just noticed an edit of yours in which the raw code of your signature was placed onto the page, rather than a transclusion. According to the signature policy, raw signature code may not be placed on discussion pages, as it unnecessarily inflates the page's size. Additionally, if you were to choose to update your signature in the future, the changes would not appear in pages you had signed before.

The steps for fixing your signature are as follows:

  • Create this page.
  • Copy your signature code into the page and save.
  • Go to your preferences and place this in the Signatures box:


  • Make sure the custom signature box is checked and save.
  • Optionally: Return to pages you've signed in the past and replace your raw signature code on those page (but not the timestamps) with ~~~~.

Thank you. --Andorin (Talk) (Contribs) 20:05, April 8, 2011 (UTC)

Actually, no, it's not working. Your edit to my talk page demonstrates that. Look at all the code left behind by your sig, and then see how in my posts I just have {{Signatures/AndorinKato}}. The steps I provided in my notice here will eliminate this problem. --Andorin (Talk) (Contribs) 20:12, April 8, 2011 (UTC)
Yes, I think it's fixed now. Thanks. --Andorin (Talk) (Contribs) 20:17, April 8, 2011 (UTC)

RE:Ice sculpture‎[edit source]

I don't know, I don't use Wikia skin (default skin) which has the quick ways of adding categories, I use Monobook. All I know was that Category:Easter 2011 was already on that page when someone added it again, then a different person added it again, then the same person added it again. Full Slayer Helmet!

Zoom in?[edit source]

Hey, what did you do at File:Mod Stevew post.png? It looks very blurry and zoomed in. Could you please upload a version of the original size? Thanks, JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 19:55, April 21, 2011 (UTC)

Do you also have a size between those two? That image looks a little bit smaller than regular forum posts on the forums. If you could link to the forum it's on, I can also retake the image. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 20:11, April 21, 2011 (UTC)

Dutch[edit source]

Heh, thanks. Sorry if you got 2000 e-mails. I'm trying to create more connectivity between the different language wikis, and one of the main ways to do that is through interlanguage links. I'm friends with Joey, so I made sure to ask him whether those links would be useful. If you need any more help with something like that I may be of assistance, although I must confess I don't speak a word of Dutch Lol ʞooɔ 09:13, June 24, 2011 (UTC)

Not sure how the categories got messed up, but thanks for spotting and correcting the categories problem on my edit to Rubber blackjack. Smile Amaurice talk 06:49, October 3, 2011 (UTC)

Blocking[edit source]

Hi Xsdvd,

Chicken's account was compromised by Cakemix. You did the right thing reporting him, and unfortunately the person who controlled that account didn't like it and blocked you. Thanks for being bold about this, and I hope there aren't any hard feelings. You were just in the wrong place at the wrong time. ʞooɔ 22:04, November 7, 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, the thing is that even if an admin blocked him it wouldn't do anything: sysops are able to override blocks, so we needed either a bureaucrat to remove his rights or someone from Wikia to do it. The latter happened. ʞooɔ 18:28, November 8, 2011 (UTC)

RE:BrainBot[edit source]

Hi, I'd be happy to help you get a version of BrainBot's GEMW script running on your wiki. There's a few things that you'll need:

  • A category containing all the valid Exchange: articles
  • A flagged bot account
  • An up-to-date Perl distribution
  • Various Perl modules which we can elaborate on later
  • You'll also need a method of working out when the Grand Exchange has updated, I use RuneScript's !gu function which is currently broken Frown. Otherwise you can always just run the bot on a schedule.

File:Tribal Totem reward.png[edit source]

Hi, I noticed you uploaded a new version of File:Tribal Totem reward.png including the spins in the reward scroll. However, you also resized the image so it was considerably larger than normal, and very noticeable. In the future, please upload the image without resizing. Per our image policies, we don't generally allow edits besides cropping, transparency, and particles to images. Thanks, Hofmic Talk 18:52, May 9, 2012 (UTC)

Armour rating[edit source]

Sorry I'm new to using the wiki, that's why I've been accidentally reverting your edits without leaving any comments. The tool tips show 10x what the actual armour rating is, and this is a confirmed bug. I'll find the QFC for you on the forums. The actual armour rating is the one that's shown on the combat stats interface, and that's the one that should be on the wiki. 19:44, January 14, 2013 (UTC)

Dutch RSW[edit source]

I see that you are a crat there. I'm interested in helping out with new articles and such, but I have a few questions:

  • Is it allowed to just translate (manually ofc) content from this wiki? IIRC wikipedia sometimes does this and puts a template on the page to say where the original can be found etc.
  • Approx what state is the nlRSW in? There's obviously a lot more articles on this wiki, but does the nl version at least have all the basics?
  • Policy-wise, are there any big differences between the en and nl versions?
  • This wiki explicitly favours British English over American English. How does the nl wikicdeal with Dutch vs Flemish?

Feel free to respond in Dutch if that's easier for you :) Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 09:52, June 5, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for responding so quickly! I think the best course of action right now would be to start a Yew Grove thread here to find out how the community here feels about using articles, templates, images etc on the Dutch version. If people here approve the use of content from this en version on the nl version them it shouldn't be too hard to (re)build the nl version. Such a discussion could also help bring more people to the Dutch version as well. Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 12:18, June 5, 2013 (UTC)
Sounds like we can start soon :) Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 07:53, June 6, 2013 (UTC)

Re: Fish Flingers[edit source]

Ah, excellent, an actual bureaucrat from the Dutch wiki. Good. Don't worry, the Fish Flinger articles are already done, and I won't do anymore. Can you make sure that they won't be deleted, or if they will be deleted to have non-translated titles, redirect the translated titles to the non-translated titles so the links from the here, the English wiki, still work? Blaze_fire.png12.png 15:06, June 5, 2013 (UTC)

Well, all ya gotta do is the redirect, really. Sorry about all that. On a side note though, your Yew Grove post is bound to pass. See Capuz de Pernix (Portuguese). They're already using the templates, so you'll be good :D Blaze_fire.png12.png 15:16, June 5, 2013 (UTC)

Are you sure his pre-BoL tier was retconned? User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 19:17, November 2, 2013 (UTC)

Loot Piñata[edit source]

I see you edited luchador masks as possible rewards from a loot piñata. Are you sure that these are rewarded? It's well known that they do reward luchador mask tokens, which in turn reward luchador masks. Seems a bit weird to me if the masks are rewarded directly as well. Thingummywut (talk) 08:27, January 15, 2016 (UTC)

I came to ask the same question, but I see you already answered it. Oh well, I already opened the editing screen... MolMan 13:51, January 15, 2016 (UTC)

Ugh[edit source]

I'll just revert it. The infobox is too much of a mess for me to want to bother. MolMan 16:46, January 18, 2016 (UTC)

the Wikian title[edit source]

Hello! Following the discussion at RuneScape:The Wikian, you have been granted the Wikian title! Please make arrangements with Gaz Lloyd to receive the title in game. If you could please add your in-game name to RuneScape:The Wikian/Users, it would be most appreciated. Thanks and congratulations! svco4bY.png3Gf5N2F.png 01:18, December 14, 2016 (UTC)

Leuk dat je nog leeft :P, met mij gaat het prima heb net weer een baan! Hoe gaat het met jou?

Laatst bewerkte ik een dialogue en toen kon ik die bewerking afmaken omdat er een scheldwoord in zat (dat was het dialoog) op Transcript:Khoochak, is dat niet handig voor nl rs wiki?

Hield je van questen?

Wikia forking thread[edit source]

Hey Xsdvd! 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! Magic logs detail.pngIsobelJTalk page 19:42, September 30, 2018 (UTC)
