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.


Tasks

Current tasks active until

28 December

If you have worked on a goal and want to be considered for a bond, please let us know in the OSWF 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.

Recipe ticks - Task active

Add 200 tick rates to revelant pages using the Recipe template

With the recent enhancement to our Recipe template, we are looking to include the tick count for each item that is created. The parameter to add to the template is

|ticks = #

The list of pages that need the tick rate included on the Recipe template can be found in the category Recipes missing ticks. The value that is entered into the parameter will be a single use action with no make-all interface. For any manipulative ticks or Make-All tick rates, they must be noted in the ticksnote parameter. PLEASE INCLUDE THE NOTE IF THERE IS A MAKE-ALL VALUE! As a note, the value of a single tick is 0.6 seconds in real time. More information on ticks can be found on RuneScape clock.

NPC location maps - Task active

Add maps of NPC locations to 200 pages

We're in the middle of a project to add interactive maps of all NPC spawn locations to articles – see Hans as a simple example. We want your help to add these maps to all relevant NPC articles. Here is a list of the NPC articles that might need an NPC map, but don't have an interactive one.

We suggest just looking at User:Cook_Me_Plox/Maybe_missing_map for the list of articles.

If it's an NPC in a dungeon, or on a page that uses a switch infobox (see Wise Old Man for an example with the buttons at the top), please skip these ones for now – we don't fully support the interactive maps there yet.

For simple spawns, you can just set the map parameter on the infobox:

|map = {{NPC map|x=3200|y=3200|plane=1|r=4}}

Changing the coordinates (plane can be omitted if it's 0). You can use a tool like https://explv.github.io to figure out the coordinates of a particular location. The r parameter is the radius of the square, which you can leave out if you're not sure of the radius. Preview the page, make sure it looks right, and then save!

As you add maps to the wiki, they will get removed from the list (although perhaps not instantaneously). This is a pretty complex and new project, so if you have any questions or notice something wrong, please join our Discord server so we can talk it through.

Keldagrim tasks - Task completed

Do 100 Keldagrim tasks, and make the page better, with mechanics.

Just about nobody knows this, but there's a weird task system in Keldagrim where 9(ish) NPCs will randomly ask to deliver certain items in a particular time period, and will reward either XP or coins if you bring the items. It's a lot like the tasks you need to do for the Consortium in The Giant Dwarf, but a little bit weirder and harder to access. The wiki's coverage on this is very lacking, and it's so obscure that the page hasn't been improved in about 12 years. We need someone to go do about 100 of these tasks, and then fill in the page with the information gained, including: a list of the NPCs, what items they ask for (and rewards they give), and any special dialogue from the interaction.

I'd recommend making a spreadsheet with NPC/Item/Minutes/Reward.

The relevant NPCs (that we know of) are Agmundi, Saro, Santiri, Rowdy dwarf, Tati, Hervi, Gunslik, and probably Randivor and Gulldamar. When you log in, a specific NPC is chosen from that set, which will have a task, and all the others won't. Find the right one (it will be clear from the first bit of dialogue), and then see what they ask for (with the exception of the rowdy dwarf, it seems to be 2-5 cheap low-level items). If you don't want the task, you can cancel it, and exiting out of dialogue before accepting also seems to cancel it (and reshuffles the task-giver). World hopping also re-shuffles the task-giver.

We think 100 tasks should take about 2-3 hours. Please mix it up -- do about ten of each NPC.

Once you have a bunch of data, take a look at the Keldagrim tasks page and think about how you could improve it (using Wise Old Man tasks as a good example of a similar page.)

This is a pretty complex task, so please come talk to us in the Discord if you get stuck or want advice.

Update history - Task completed

Add patch notes from 5 different updates to relevant pages

One of our newest (and most ambitious) projects is to document information about how game updates have affected content over time. A group of editors is currently working through old patch notes and copying them on to pages of content that was affected by each patch.

This information is organised chronologically in a new section called "Changes" which is being added to pages. You can help by doing this for the patch notes listed below. There is a project page which explains how to add in a new patch note here, as well as a dedicated <#517023326942658597> channel on our Discord.


The list of updates for this OSWF task can be found below. Completing five of these updates will earn a bond:

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.

Improve Digsite and Varrock Museum information - Task completed

Dig 150 times at each of the Digsite patches, and make the Digsite page better, and improve the Uncleaned find drop table

We want to get an accurate list of all of the things you can get from digging in the Digsite. Please keep track of the items you got, which patch you were on, and also the chatbox text you get for each item. Then, put this information on the Digsite article, separated out by the level of the patch, similar to how it's listed on something like Fishing Trawler. To finish off the task, please also update the uncleaned find's reward table with the information (items and rarities) shown in this recent video. Please come talk to us in Discord before you start, so we don't have a ton of people doing it at once!

(note: this will require completion of The Dig Site quest).

Bring your trowel, specimen brush, rock pick and specimen jar to the Digsite, and dig 150 times at each of the spots (there are nine total -- this should take a little over an hour and a half of actual digging).

This one isn't too hard, but just takes some time. Please keep track of "nothing" drops as well as ones that actually give items. Please also pay attention to the chatbox messages, and note those down for each item.
