RuneScape:One Small Wiki Favour/Archive 2
|1 • 2 • 3 • 4 • 5 • 6 • 7 |
One Small Wiki Favour is a project to improve the OSRS 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
#one-small-wiki-favour channel in our Discord to coordinate with other editors, discuss the project, and claim your rewards.
If you have completed a goal please pop onto Discord and ask one of the wiki admins to check your contributions and award you a bond. If you have done work on a goal but not managed to complete it fully by the end of the week, you may still be rewarded some coins for your work.
Item spawn locations exploration
Task: Visit a bunch of missing locations in-game with our modified client that logs the location of item spawns.
This task is now substantially complete! Thanks to everyone for helping. We'll have similar map exploration projects in the future.
Task Coordinator: Cook Me Plox
We're starting a new project that will standardize information about item spawns, with interactive maps and exact locations. See this page for a demo of what this will look like -- we think this will be extremely useful for the ironman community.
We still need to gather more information about the spawn locations. We've created a modified RuneLite client with a plugin that logs the location and amount of any items found on the ground, within about 30 tiles of where you're standing. We need someone to run around the missing parts of the game (at this point mainly dungeons, and first/second/third floors of buildings, to get the remainder of the item spawns. We expect this will be 2-3 hours of running around the game.
If this sounds interesting to you, ping
@Cook#2222 in the
#one-small-wiki-favour, and we can share the client and a map of the missing areas.
Community Event Pages
Task: Create pages covering historical community events in OSRS's history
Task Coordinator: BigDiesel
The wiki has great information about almost everything in the game, but when it comes to events outside of the game, our coverage is lacking. To complete this task, create comprehensive pages for the following four community events in OSRS's history:
- The Tournament (August 2015) - Update:Competitive Tournament, Update:Runescape Competitive Tournament
- PvP Championship (August 2017) - Update:PvP Championship 12th/13th
- Wilderness Wars (August 2017) - Update:Wilderness Wars
- All Stars: PvP Championship (November 2018)
Pages should include a description of the event itself, any relevant background information about the competition, quality images of the event (if available), and a summary of the event results. For an example of an adequate community event page, see Jagex Clan Cup 2014. The pages for this task should aim to exceed the quality of that page, especially in cases of recent events where more information and references are readily available.
Gnome Restaurant loot tables
Task: Fill out and format the loot tables for Gnome Restaurant tips on the 20 hard NPC articles.
This task is complete now! There may be more work done in the future to better improve our coverage of this minigame, so stay tuned!
Task Coordinators: BigDiesel, Cook Me Plox
Each of the NPCs listed has their own loot table, which is spelled out in part on the Gnome Restaurant page. Make it so each of the 20 hard gnomes have a loot section (example: Wingstone) that uses the template, and has correct loot (not just what's listed on the NPC article already, as this is often incorrect). Please also add the navbox to the bottom of each of the gnome articles.
Task: Create pages for 20 "portal" scenery objects
Task Coordinators: Demilancer, BigDiesel, Cook Me Plox
There are tons of various portals in game, and our current catch-all Portal page doesn't do nearly enough to cover all of them. To complete this task, make pages for the following Portal scenery objects. For a reference in regards to object IDs, see MOOD.

Each portal page should be properly templated, have a brief description of the portal and its functionality, and have a high quality image sourced from either MOOD or this image dump. Pages should meet or exceed the quality of the existing Clan Cup portal page, which can be used as an example for more portal pages.
Task: Add patch notes from 10 different updates to relevant pages.
Task Coordinators: BigDiesel, Jakesterwars
We recently started highlighting changes to OSRS on specific pages, in a new "Changes" section near the bottom of the page. (See Vorkath for an example) This project aims to extend that change coverage to older updates over the last six years of OSRS, by going through each update and adding the changes made to all relevant pages.
The main page for this project can be found here, including a list of updates to work on and instructions on how to contribute. There is also a dedicated
#update-history channel on our Discord, for discussion and advice on the project.
To complete this task, add all the changes from 10 of the following updates to all relevant pages:

Once you've completed an update, mark it off here and on the project page, so we can stay organized and keep track of what's been done.
- 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 each task will be one bond. If multiple editors contribute to a goal then the prize may be split between them.
- Partial bonds 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.
- This project is currently in a trial phase, so specific logistics and prizes may be subject to change.
