RuneScape:One Small Wiki Favour/Archive 7
|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.
Current tasks active until
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.
F2P money making guides - Task completed
Create 4 free-to-play money making guides from the list below.
We have some new free-to-play methods we'd like to add to the money making guide. Test them out for a bit, get a sense of the timing, and then create a page!
Money making guide/Collecting red spiders' eggs (free-to-play)- Koosha/Lolnoacop Money making guide/Making dyes- Timorsanus Money making guide/Crafting emerald jewellery- Hamploky Money making guide/Buying team capes- Sacsac9 Money making guide/Killing Zamorak monks- MarcusTruman Money making guide/Killing Ankou (free-to-play) (can reference the p2p one)- Siyei Money making guide/Killing hobgoblins (free-to-play) (can reference the p2p one)- GoldTrimmer Money making guide/Mining gold ore (free-to-play) (can use reference p2p one)- Many people Money making guide/Collecting wine of zamorak (free-to-play) (can reference the p2p one)
Money making guide/Mining runite ore (free-to-play) (can reference the p2p one)- MarcusTruman
Go do the method for a bit (at least a few runs) to get an idea of how much money it is per hour if you're playing reasonably efficiently. Try to get an idea of whether the inputs and outputs actually buy/sell on the Grand Exchange, since for a few of these, that may be a concern. In some cases it may be useful to look at the RS3 version of the money making guide since some of these methods already have reasonable timings or other info that can be reused.
Once you have an estimate, write the article! For some good examples, check out:
Serum 208 Rewards - Task completed
Use 1000 doses of Serum 208 on Afflicted in Mort'ton
To improve the accuracy of our Serum 208 page, you will cure 1000 Afflicted around Mort'ton, and keep track of the rewards they give you. This process will also involve making the Serum 208 in the Shades of Mort'ton minigame.
Once you have Serum 208, it can be used on the various Afflicted around town to transform them back into Mort'ton locals. They turn back into Afflicted fairly quickly, so it is probably not necessary to hop worlds to find more Afflicted (running around the town should suffice). Keep track of the rewards these locals give, including the type of the reward, the amount of the reward, and the local which gave it (though hopefully that doesn't make a difference). The task is to use 1000 doses (250 four-dose potions worth) of Serum 208 on the Afflicted, and should probably take a couple hours between creating the Serum 208 and using it on the Afflicted. Please use [google sheet] to track you loot under your name.
Closest... page - Task active
Add 100 pairs to the Closest...
The Closest... page aims to describe the best location to find one thing close to another thing. For example, where the closest Bank is to a Range. In free-to-play, this is in Al-Kharid, but in members it is the Myths' Guild. We want your help thinking up pairs, adding them to the page, and measuring the distance between them.
Teleport logging - Task active
Add the start/end points and timing of 200 teleports/other transportation things to our spreadsheet.
In order to finish our automatic pathfinding project (Google Maps for RuneScape!), we need to get an exhaustive list of all the ways you can move, besides walking. That includes teleports, spirit trees, ships, and even things like cave entrances and ladders. We specifically need the start and end points (if applicable -- teleports generally don't have start points), and how many ticks they take to do.
To use it, click the Configuration wrench in RuneLite, scroll to the bottom and click "Plugin Hub", and then look for the "Teleport Logger" plugin. Installing it will add a little teleport icon to the right navigation menu. Click it, and it will expand to show an empty text panel. Doing a teleport (or any movement over 2 squares at once) should log the start/end/time to the panel, which you can copy to the spreadsheet, which can be found here. In that spreadsheet, there's also a list of important TODO teleports (mostly boats), if you're looking for a nice subset to work on.
Important: getting an accurate time taken relies on you not standing in the starting point for any longer than is necessary, otherwise we'll get overestimated times. To deal with this, please be walking somewhere while you click the teleport. Don't pause before going up a ladder, et cetera.
Please try to add a useful description of what the "teleport" actually was (take inspiration from the first few entries in the sheet).
We're probably going to get some duplicates, but please try to do a Ctrl+F on the sheet first to see if the method you're about to try has already been done by someone else.
Probably the majority of the teleports here will be ladders and stairs, so it might be useful to just go through an entire city at once. And make sure to get both the up an down parts!This is a bit complex, so please join to the Discord if you want to help!
Update history - Task completed
Add patch notes from 4 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.
<#517023326942658597>channel on our Discord.
The list of updates for this OSWF task can be found below. Completing four of these updates will earn a bond:
