What this page is for[edit source]

  • Protecting/unprotecting pages. Highly visible pages or content that may have links from outside websites are encouraged to have some level of protection. This can also include a request for administrators to try and calm down an edit war. This should be done according to the Runescape:Protection policy.
  • Moving/renaming protected pages and files. Due to vandals' mis-use of the page move tool, some pages are protected from being renamed except by an administrator. If you can make a compelling case for a page move, or consensus has been reached on the respective discussion page related to the page you think needs to be renamed, formal requests for the page move can happen here. New contributors to this wiki or "anonymous" users wishing to rename a page that don't have the page move option available to them yet are also welcome to make such requests on this page.
  • Minor edits to protected pages. This is mostly on protected templates that can have a substantial impact on the whole wiki if they are changed, so caution is urged when they are modified.
  • Announcements that are intended to be across the whole wiki. This appears on MediaWiki:Sitenotice, and should be something that would be of interest to the whole community.
  • Importing pages from another wiki. While seldom used for content on this wiki, this is an option that is available for bringing in content from another wiki and preserving its edit history, which requires administrator rights. This may take some time, so be patient if you wish to make this sort of request. MediaWiki importing tools can sometimes be buggy, so be gentle on volunteer administrators doing this task.
  • Hiding revisions and/or edit summaries. In the case of blatant copyright violations, significantly offensive material, identity establishing information, or any other content that poses a major risk to the wiki or its editors, the revision(s) may be hidden using Special:RevisionDelete.
  • General questions to the administrators of this wiki. You might get a faster reply by posting on the User help page; however, the administrators here will try to help you to the best of their abilities.

What this page is not for[edit source]

  • Problems that do not require administrator tools to complete. Instead, please visit the user help page.
  • Problem users who may be vandalising content pages. Instead, please note the user that may be causing problems on the Counter-Vandalism Unit page.
  • Requests to become an administrator. If you are interested in learning what an administrator does or how you can become one, please visit the Administrators page for information about administrators and Requests for adminship page for the process to become an administrator.
  • General discussions about administrator behaviour. Most policy discussions, including policies that govern administrators, ought to be started on the RuneCafé and kept to that forum for input from the larger RS wiki community.
  • Minor requests for deletion. If you've accidentally duplicated content or wish to just clean up a mess you've made on the wiki, you should simply tag the page with {{D|Reason(s) for nomination}}.

Note: Please only make requests on this page that specifically require sysop tools to fulfil.

Attempting to add a page for Oziris' Ironman Guide - Disallowed by Auto Mod.[edit source]

Hi, I'm trying to add a page as a sub-page to the Ironman Guide page, but it's being automatically blocked. I've currently put what I want to add on my personal page (User:Cyndafel)). The page is just a checklist version on Oziris' Ironman Guide from here: It needs a lot of work on grammar, formatting and tagging, but I feel would be very useful for any Ironman players to use.

Hi - It appears the edit triggered a lot of our abuse filters when attempting to make a subpage, for a variety of different reasons. You did the right thing by moving the in-progress edit to your userpage - Work on applying the style guide and avoid using real player names, and then we can discuss moving this page into the mainspace. In the mean time, feel free to hit me up on Discord or on my talk page if you require assistance doing the above. --dDbvitC.png Scuzzy Beta hib8CAd.png 08:08, 8 November 2019 (UTC)

Please delete my page[edit source]

Hello. I created another duplicate of [[Money making from Crafting F2P Statistics]] at [[Crafting jewellery and selling to shop]] in an attempt to move that page to my user page. If you could delete "Crafting jewellery and selling to shop" and possibly the other page too. MaxStein (talk) 11:06, 15 November 2019 (UTC)

Hi Max, it's been moved to User:MaxStein/Crafting jewellery and selling to shop and User:MaxStein/Money making from Crafting F2P Statistics, respectively. :) Farming icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Quest point icon.png 11:28, 15 November 2019 (UTC)
