What have you done as an admin up to this point?
I became an administrator on OSRS about four years ago, and spent a week working on importing and standardizing update articles from the the first two years of OSRS, as well as antique updates that pre-dated the launch of the game. This was done with an eye towards eventually having release dates on articles, which at the time did not exist.

Other than a few small AbuseFilter changes, I was not active again until preparations for the fork started. During that process, I helped lead the effort to consistently theme the wiki, and directed the final merge between the test wiki and the live mirror. In both of those cases, being able to edit MediaWiki pages myself has saved everyone some time.

Since the fork, I have dedicated most of my wiki time to large-scale projects that will improve the OSRS wiki. These include:

  • Standardizing and mapping item and NPC pages, with the goal of supporting ingame wiki integration in the coming weeks
  • Leading the push to get our articles indexed and shown on Google
  • Running the cartography project, which soon will replace most of our PNG maps with interactive ones

In all of these, being an administrator lets me add more value to the wiki than I otherwise could. ʞooɔ 06:31, 4 February 2019 (UTC)


Support - Has done countless more for technical aspects of the wiki than I ever will, and currently continuing technical work vital for client integration. Even without those, he is still an exemplary user that all users should strive to be. -- Recent uploads SpineTalkContribs 06:16, 4 February 2019 (UTC)

Support — I've not personally seen Cook much since before the fork as I joined last year, but with the fork his contributions have been invaluable. Also heard good things about him in 2011–2014 on CoD wiki from people who were on both so that's a plus. He's also the face of the Discord server, quite literally, because of the emotes. --laagone talk 15:27, 4 February 2019 (UTC)

Support - of course, Cook is a pretty trusty person. Adragon111 (talk) 16:52, 4 February 2019 (UTC)

Support - constantly working to make the wikis better, hard to overstate how many important projects he's involved with, incredibly welcoming and friendly BigDiesel2m (talk) 01:13, 11 February 2019 (UTC)

Closure - Cook will have his sysop tools removed keep his sysop tools. -- Recent uploads SpineTalkContribs 02:26, 11 February 2019 (UTC)
