This article is about requests for help from general users. For requests for help needing administrator tools, see RuneScape:Administrator requests.

Welcome to the Old School RuneScape Wiki User Help page. This page is here to offer a central location for those who are participating with the development of this wiki to make general requests for help. For admin help, click here.

Note for requesters - Once a solution has been presented and implemented, please add a comment signifying completion, if the request hasn't already been archived. This is to help other users know when to archive completed requests.

Instructions[edit source]

What this page is for[edit source]

  • Coding help. Requesting help with writing templates, making a nice user page, or any questions on writing wiki-code can be asked here and users will help to the best of their ability.
  • Requests for non-administrative actions. If help is required with an action (such as moving a page), asking users here for help with that action is acceptable.
  • Questions on how the wiki works. All the policies and processes in use on the Old School RuneScape Wiki may seem a little overwhelming at first. If you need help in understanding any of the policies, or more in depth instructions on a process, asking here is a good start.
  • Other questions to the users of the wiki. - While the Watercooler is often a better place, a simple question may be asked here for a quick response.
  • An all-in-one place to put things. Many of the Wiki's procedures are lesser-known, so putting a note here is a good way to do something if the correct procedure is not known.

What this page is not for[edit source]

  • Requests for actions involving administrator tools. Please use Admin requests for such requests.
  • Larger discussion with other users on policies or other wide-ranging actions. The Watercooler is a more suitable location to discuss larger changes to the Wiki's policies, procedures and high-use templates.
  • General chat (about Old School RuneScape or not). General chat about Old School RuneScape (or an off-topic subject) should be taken to individual user talk pages, or article talk pages when applicable.

Untitled[edit source]

Hi, I'm wondering how to make it so that when you click a row in a light table a script runs? I want to change bgcolor of the next row to track steps better in quick guides. Inspired by One Small Favour..

Non-GE Items[edit source]

It seems like there are a lot of item pages that don't have any GE information, and the items are listed on the Non-GE Items page. Looking at the list of non-GE items, a large number of them are tradeable on the GE-- for example, abyssal dagger, adamant arrow, and combat potion. I checked the source of a couple of these tradeable items and they don't seem to have the [Category:Non-GE items] tag, yet they still have a link to it in the Categories section. It seems like most of the tradeable items in this category are items with multiple states-- poisoned/unpoisoned, charged/uncharged, 4-dose/3-dose, et cetera. Am I missing something, or should these pages be edited?

The abyssal dagger page seems very problematic - no distinction between the normal and poisoned variants, no GE info, and the attack speed info seems to be wrong. I can take a look tomorrow but I think this is a bigger problem. Adragon111 (talk) 05:55, 19 October 2018 (UTC)
Riblet and iN believe they've figured out the issue causing it and will be working on fixing it. Thanks for the report! Ty 06:54, 19 October 2018 (UTC)
P.S. Attack speed on Abyssal dagger is correct, recently we switched to Jagex's official attack speeds (the old 6 is be equivalent to Jagex's 4). - iN008talk 06:58, 19 October 2018 (UTC)

Just a Random Question[edit source]

I was just curious why the Runecraft page redirects to Runecrafting, rather than the other way around, since the in-game skill's name is Runecraft. Chee (talk) 01:52, 29 October 2018 (UTC)
