RuneScape:Administrator requests

From Old School RuneScape Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

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.
  • Reporting vandals and spammers. Regular editors are encouraged to revert the vandalism or spam as quickly as possible, and alert an administrator to block the problematic user in order to prevent further damage.
  • 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.
  • 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 Redwood Grove and kept to that forum for input from the larger Old School RuneScape 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.
Make sure to sign and date your request by typing four tildes (~~~~) at the end of your message.

Requests[edit source]

Barbarian Fishing[edit source]

Hi Team,

Under Barbarian Training page it is underlined that barbarian fishing is just as quick as regular harpoon fishing. This is not the case due to the additional animation of wiping hands dry on trousers after the catch in barbarian fishing. I've done a lot of Tempoross with a dragon harpoon and have noted about 4 seconds with harpoon vs roughly 7 seconds barbarian style. Would be nice if there was a way for us to toggle which style we use, either through Otto or settings.

Cheers! —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 06:15, 6 August 2021 (UTC).

This page is specifically for requests that require sysop tools from a wiki admin. For errors on specific pages (e.g. barb training page), feel free to fix it yourself or write the issue on the talk page if your unsure how to fix. byro009 (talk) 06:28, 6 August 2021 (UTC)

Crystal Shard item sources[edit source]

I believe the wiki is missing the agility course in Prifddinas as an item source for crystal shards. I believe this asset ( should be added as an approximately 1/3 chance at giving a crystal shard to the sources table.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 2603:300b:788:4c00:90e2:1c19:1552:c053 (talk) on 08:30, 1 September 2021 (UTC).

Pumpkin Pie GE page[edit source]

Could Module:Exchange/Pumpkin_pie be deleted, I tried to add {{D}} but the Lua parser engine won't let me. Reason: no longer listed on the GE. Ozank (talk) 17:31, 23 October 2021 (UTC)

And Exchange:Pumpkin_pie please, thanks Ozank (talk) 17:34, 23 October 2021 (UTC)

Pumpkin pie still seems to be listed on the GE for me ingame anyway. - Andmcadams (talk) 18:00, 23 October 2021 (UTC)
Okay, I see the confusion now thanks to crow. Ingame, it can still be searched for on the Grand Exchange. But on the website it does not appear. - Andmcadams (talk) 18:03, 23 October 2021 (UTC)
Right ok, it's just I saw some Lua error that I assumed was due to it not on the database anymore. Thanks for the responses :) Ozank (talk) 23:45, 23 October 2021 (UTC)

Grotesque Guardians[edit source]

I wanted to add the following edit to the wiki, but have been flagged for innapropriate language for some reason:

The Grotesque Guardians fight starts by ringing a bell and takes place upon a rooftop, the same as the Bell Gargoyles boss fight from the game Dark Souls. The following significant update to the game also saw the addition of another Dark Souls reference, Erdan at the Myth's Guild. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 06:10, 19 November 2021 (UTC).

This is kind of amazing - "Bell Gargoyles boss fight" has "lesbo" as a substring with spaces removed, so it got caught. I'll add it back shortly. ʞooɔ 06:15, 19 November 2021 (UTC)

Hello, I tried logging into my account on the here and it wasn't letting me so I went through support and did what was asked which was to edit my page on the old wiki and add "hi wgl" since doing that I haven't received a reply in literal months about the issue and am still not able to access my account. any help would be appreciated. thank you. Not sure where to go for help with this sorry if this is the wrong place, any direction to the right place would be appreciated —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 17 December 2021 (UTC).

Request: Stat drain page[edit source]

Dear wiki team

Although it only has a really niche use, would you allow me to make a wiki page page similar to the stat boost page, but then for stat drains?

This is relatively unusefull for most players but interesting for people that burn food/cut gems for crusheds,...

I just made my wiki account to send this message to you.

Looking forward to your response.

Kind regards MARIS  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by MARIS (talk) on 22:08, 29 December 2021 (UTC).

For anybody else reading this or interested in this request, this request was addressed on Maris' talk page. zTUG5mD.png Crow  19:15, 24 January 2022 (UTC)

Authenticatorproblem[edit source]

Stronghold security.... Failed to set up a correct Authenticator. Can´t log in to my account to disable Authent..because they ask for my 6 digits. That I dont have.. Have asked to get my account back - how long do I have to wait??? -- 14:46, 12 February 2022 (UTC)

Nobody on the wiki can help with jagex account issues, we are not jagex. Follow jagex's support steps. zTUG5mD.png Crow  14:50, 12 February 2022 (UTC)

Option to clear all checkboxes on a page[edit source]

When repeating quests, for leagues for example, I run into quests that I have previously completed. As an avid wiki user, I generally use the quick-guides of the quests on a wiki. Oftentimes I encounter checkbox sets that I have checked off in the past, and manually un-checking each box can become a hassle.

I would prefer a feature which allows me to clear the checkboxes on a page so I can start with a clean slate.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by PiPsteer (talk) on 20:59, 12 February 2022 (UTC).

Hello, all quests should have an "Uncheck all" button at the bottom of the quest details' item requirements and recommended sections, most standalone tables which allow clicking for marking things also should have a button that clears it, and each section in a quick guide's checklists should also have a button to uncheck all, is there a specific checklist you've encountered that doesn't have a button for this? zTUG5mD.png Crow  21:06, 12 February 2022 (UTC)

Making Friends With My Arm[edit source]

Hello, I'd like to make a comment about the wiki's article for the quest Making Friends With My Arm.

The guide claims that the 72 Mining Requirement is Boostable. I tried getting through the first mining obstacle in the quest with only 70 mining. I did however have a Celestial Signet which gives an invisible +4. I was unable to proceed and the game gave me a message stating I needed 72 mining. I came back with a Dragon Pickaxe, used the special attack, and made another attempt. I was yet again met with the message that I needed 72 mining.

The 72 Mining Requirement for Making Friends With My Arm does not appear to actually be boostable. The quest can be started and will turn yellow, but you will not be able to access Weiss. 01:15, 13 February 2022 (UTC)

Hi there! This page is specifically meant for getting ahold of admins so they can preform tasks that require sysop tools. Any user can edit the wiki, even if you don't have an account! A better place to write feedback in the future would be the article's talk page.
Anyhow — I've gone ahead and updated the information on the page for Making Friends With My Arm so users won't be confused in the future. Thanks for letting us know about this, it's really appreciated! Owl (1).pngOwl (t | c) • 09:07, 13 February 2022 (UTC)

File move request[edit source]

Hello, I'm kindly requesting a Custodian or Admin preform the following moves:

File:Turoth safespot (1).png -> File:Fremennik Slayer Dungeon Turoth safespot (south).png

File:Turoth safespot (2).png -> File:Fremennik Slayer Dungeon Turoth safespot (east).png

These files are in use on Slayer task/Turoth so beware the redlinks as usual :)

Please also delete File:Fremennik Slayer Dungeon Turoth safespot.png as it will not be needed.

Thanks! Owl (1).pngOwl (t | c) • 04:30, 16 February 2022 (UTC)

Brimstone Keys at KBD[edit source]

I was looking into the loot table at kbd and saw that a Brimstone Key is a drop available. So I went to the Konar page to see how to unlock the task and found that she does not actually assign KBD as a task nor does the black dragons that she does assign have a location that allows for KBD to be killed on task. So when I tried to edit the list of Tertiary drops assigned to KBD to remove the brimstone key it stated that it was a confirmed drop by jagex which doesn't make sense. Unless there was something missed on the wiki(like not having the cooldown timer for freezing players/npc's) I 100% feel like this mistake should be corrected. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Iron Maytas (talk) on 17:27, 1 March 2022 (UTC).

@Iron Maytas: Konar can assign boss tasks, and you can get brimstone keys from boss tasks assigned by Konar, that is also why bosses like Vorkath have brimstone key drops. zTUG5mD.png Crow  19:11, 1 March 2022 (UTC)

Do you mean to say that you didn't realize changing attack styles in Last Man Standing would affect it account-wide? Owl (1).pngOwl (t | c) • 13:27, 5 March 2022 (UTC)

Fruit Blast[edit source]

Edit to Fruit Blast was flagged for inappropriate language.

Very minor edit. I was adding link to Funch's Fine Groceries. With summary "Add link to Funch's Fine Groceries".

New Dark Mode[edit source]

Frequently, I have found myself on the RS3 wiki by accident when I meant to be on the OSRS wiki due to the extremely similar theming of the dark modes of the two wikis.

The brown theming of the light mode is fantastic, distinctive, and aesthetically matches OSRS. I would suggest that a similar dark brown aesthetic be used for dark mode as opposed to the current dark blue theme.

I didn't know where else to post about this, so please let me know if this isn't the right place for this. --Ioticonfo (talk) 22:18, 24 March 2022 (UTC)

Leagues Items[edit source]

Currently, items that are specific to one or more Leagues use the "Gone" template to indicate that they no longer exist in the game. However, this is an imprecise solution. For example, scroll boxes existed in multiple Leagues and ostensibly will exist in future ones, as well, so their transient nature isn't well reflected by the "Gone" template. Can we get a template to indicate an item is a League item? That would help simplify these things.

Thanks, --Ioticonfo (talk) 17:26, 29 March 2022 (UTC)

Hi! I agree Template:Gone probably isn't the best for those. But I'm not convinced that a Leagues item template would really solve the issue. Your example of the scroll box makes more sense because those will almost certainly come back, but it's much less clear for other leagues items (Fairy mushroom for example). So I'm not sure that a Leagues item template really addresses the issue of impreciseness. That's not to say we shouldn't have something for Leagues items like we have for Template:Beta, I don't have particularly strong opinions though. - Andmcadams (talk) 18:02, 29 March 2022 (UTC)
Who is in charge of making templates, is that something anyone can do? I have an idea for what a Leagues template would look like, and I could mock something up. --Ioticonfo (talk) 19:22, 29 March 2022 (UTC)
Anyone can create templates! Feel free to mock something up. I'd recommend just doing it on User:Ioticonfo/Leagues template mock or something in the meantime. I'm pretty sure you can just call it like a template with {{User:Ioticonfo/Leagues template mock}}. That can always be moved to whatever Template page once you're done. - Andmcadams (talk) 03:46, 30 March 2022 (UTC)

Item infobox[edit source]

I have some suggestions for the item infobox. A lot of the text on the left side could be replace by icons. For example, under "Values", the words "High alch", "Low alch", and "weight" could be replaced by "High Level Alchemy.png", "Low Level Alchemy.png", and "Weight.png", respectively. Also, the entries on the right hand side currently read, for example, "2000 coins". I think that would look better as 2,000.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Ioticonfo (talk) on 02:06, 4 April 2022 (UTC). --Ioticonfo (talk) 02:36, 4 April 2022 (UTC)

Thanks for the suggestion, but I don't think adding icons here will help improve the readability of the infobox. Icons are good when there isn't enough space to show a full label, but in this case there's enough horizontal space to spell everything out without ambiguity.

BUG The grand tree quest (not receiving TWIGS)[edit source]

Hello! As per this portion of the quest guide, it specifies you must have 4 free inventory spaces, so no more than 24 items in your inventory. Be sure you've completed all of the other required conversations, as well. Hope this helps! Badassiel 22:22, 4 April 2022 (UTC)

Bank at Kourend Woodland[edit source]

Heraldic Items rework[edit source]

Hello, I would like some assistance on remaking the Heraldic item pages. I have created an example at User:Ioticonfo/heraldic-remake, and the basic idea is to combine the pages for H1-H5 into a single article using switching templates.

sex, as in a sex, not the act of having sex[edit source]

Edit was attributed to anonymous user instead of my account[edit source]

I made an edit to the Arrav page which took a while, but when I saved changes I suppose my account had been logged off due to idling for a while. As a result the edit was not saved under my account name and instead now shows my IP. Here is a link to the page of the "anonymous user" the edit was recorded under: Could I get an administrator to properly attribute this edit to me (on the Arrav page history, etc) and remove the above-linked page containing my IP? Thanks! Chofls (talk) 03:33, 23 April 2022 (UTC)

@Chofls: That'd be a question for the wiki's sysadmins to see if it is possible to change the edit's attribution. I would recommend contacting them via Special:Contact. Shayani (talk) 17:39, 23 April 2022 (UTC)

hi I want to add as a search bar[edit source]

hi title :D date is 01.05.2022 I'd just like to easily search the wiki as a search engine. thank you if this is possible

This is definitely possible. If you're using Firefox or Google Chrome, check out the search options beneath the URL bar.

Check out RuneScape:Finding the wikis with ease for a guide on creating a custom search engine for your browser. It's pretty easy to set it up so you can just type "osrs <query>" and it'll search the wiki instead of whatever your default search engine is. -Towelcat (talk) 23:33, 1 May 2022 (UTC)

File moves[edit source]
