One Small Wiki Favour is a project to improve the Old School RuneScape Wiki, where wiki users can contribute to a number of ongoing wiki tasks and qualify for receiving in-game rewards, including bonds. Anyone is welcome to participate, whether you're completely new to the wiki or you've been here for a while. If you have not edited before, then this is a great time to get involved!

To participate in this project, take a look at the tasks below and find one that looks exciting -- completing any one of them will earn you a share of a bond. Each task has some advice on how to effectively tackle it, but we strongly recommend joining the #oswf-osrs channel in our Discord to coordinate with other editors, discuss the project, and claim your rewards.

Rules

  • You must have a wiki account and cannot be blocked. Anonymous edits will not count. You can sign up for a wiki account at Special:CreateAccount.
  • The reward for completion of a task will be one bond or equivalent coins. If multiple editors contribute to a goal then the prize may be split between them.
  • Partial rewards may be awarded for completing part of a task, with a minimum award at 25% of a bond.
  • A task must be completed in its entirety before any bonds or partial bonds are awarded for that task.
  • If you are awarded a bond or a share of a bond, you can get in contact with one of the project runners on Discord, and claim it in-game.
  • You can claim a maximum of two bonds over each two week period that tasks are active.

Tasks

Current tasks active until

22 August

If you have worked on a goal and want to be considered for a bond, please let us know in the #oswf-osrs Discord channel. One of the project helpers will check your contributions and may award you a bond if you have completed the task. If you have done work on a goal but not managed to complete it fully before the reset time then you may still be rewarded some coins for your work.

Using Monster Examine - Task completed

Examine 150 monsters while using the wiki's advanced crowdsourcing plugin and update the pages accordingly.

Help us add and confirm the wiki's monster info!
  1. Download the OSRS wiki advanced crowdsourcing plugin from RuneLite's plugin-hub. See here for instructions on downloading and turning on the plugin. Note: Make sure you have version 1.6.1 of the advanced crowdsourcing plugin. This can be seen from the plugin-hub interface. If you have version 1.5, you need to restart your RuneLite client or update the plugin in the plugin-hub interface to get the newest version.
  2. Type ::monsteron in chat to turn on the Monster Examine part of the plugin. You should get a notification in the chatbox saying Turned on monster examine logger.
  3. Run around and cast Monster Examine on any monsters with purple hulls around them.
  4. You can see the stats you have recorded by going to https://chisel.weirdgloop.org/monsterexamine/contribs/YOUR RSN. Example: https://chisel.weirdgloop.org/monsterexamine/contribs/Soggy%20Clam
  5. Add the immunecannon and immunethrall parameters to the monster's infobox on the wiki. See the air wizard page for an example.
  6. Fix any other parameters that may be incorrect, like Hitpoints or Attack speed.
Please come join the Discord if you have any questions!

Add monster respawn times to pages - Task completed

Add 300 monster respawn times to the wiki.

The wiki has been crowdsourcing monster respawn times and has them all in a Google sheet. Each one needs to be put on the respective monster page.

Add respawn times to the wiki!
  1. Go to this Google sheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1MDpXeL-2JcrXhld4K5sIt1_Xk3EJFwYz6nsBxBk-fIg/edit?usp=sharing
  2. For each row, put the text in the text column inside the Infobox Monster template on the page in the wiki_article column. You can see an example on this page.
  3. Once you have added the respawn time to the page, add your wiki username in the last column on the sheet.

Collecting item respawn times - Task completed

Observe 100 item respawns using the wiki's advanced crowdsourcing plugin and update the pages accordingly.

Run around Gielinor and observe specific ground items respawning and update the item pages with the respawn times.

Help us figure out how long it takes for items to respawn!
  1. Download the OSRS wiki advanced crowdsourcing plugin from RuneLite's plugin-hub. See here for instructions on downloading and turning on the plugin. Note: Make sure you have at least version 1.6 of the advanced crowdsourcing plugin. This can be seen from the plugin-hub interface. If you have version 1.5, you need to restart your RuneLite client or update the plugin in the plugin-hub interface to get the newest version.
  2. Type ::respawnon in chat to turn on the Respawn part of the plugin. You should get a notification in the chatbox saying Turned on respawns logger.
  3. Go to one of the item pages on this list.
  4. Go to one of the places that the item spawns, which you can see in the Spawns section like on the gold bar page.
  5. Pick up the item and wait around for it to respawn.
  6. The plugin will tell you the estimated respawn time in the chat box. Round this number up to the nearest 10 and add that to the page as the respawn parameter in Infobox Item, like on the gold bar page.
  7. If you are unsure about any of the times or an estimate seems very off please let us know in Discord!

Update history - Task completed

Add patch notes from 4 different updates on this page to relevant content pages.

One of our most ambitious projects is to document information about how game updates have affected content over time. Help us work through old patch notes and copy them on to pages of content that were affected by each patch.

This information is organised chronologically in a section called "Changes". You can help by doing this for the patch notes listed below. A good example of a changelog can be seen on the bird house trapping page. For more details, there is a project page which explains how to add in a new patch note here.


The list of updates for this OSWF task can be found here. Adding patch notes on to all relevant content pages for four of these updates will earn a bond! Make sure to mark the ones that you have completed or are currently working on here.

Interactable scenery pages - Task completed

Make 15 articles of scenery from this list.

See the example pages below. We've generated partially complete pages that you can copy and fill in the rest.

We've made it so that clicking the link on this page will take you to a website with a half-filled in page already, including most locations. Feel free to use that as a basis for creating the page, since it will probably save a lot of time.

See Cello and Fountain of Uhld for two great examples of random scenery pages. Each page should have:

  • {{Infobox Scenery}}, including:
    • Release date, if you can figure it out (most should be obtainable from this sheet - please don't just use the first cache date on the website)
    • An image
    • Whether or not the scenery is members-only
    • Location
    • Right-click options
    • Examine
    • A map of the exact location of the scenery. You should be able to get this from the website.
  • A couple sentences describing the scenery, and what it's used for (if anything).

These particular pages all have some sort of item you can use on them to get a unique interaction, like a key on a door or poison on a food trough. Make sure that also gets mentioned on the article!

Please come join the Discord if you aren't sure about how to page these pages!
