Protips[edit source]

Some tags you should use:

{{DII license|{{subst:#sub:{{subst:PAGENAME}}|0|-11}}}} - automatically licenses detailed item images. Make sure the name is "Exact item name" detail.png

{{Chathead license|{{subst:#sub:{{subst:PAGENAME}}|0|-13}}}} - automatically licenses chathead images. Make sure the name is "Exact NPC name" chathead.png

{{NPC license|{{subst:#sub:{{subst:PAGENAME}}|0|-4}}}} - automatically licenses NPC images. Make sure the name is "Exact NPC name".png

{{Worn equipment license|{{subst:#sub:{{subst:PAGENAME}}|0|-13}}}} - automatically licenses equipment images. Make sure the name is "Exact item name" equipped.png

{{Inventory license|{{subst:#sub:{{subst:PAGENAME}}|0|-4}}}} - automatically licenses inventory images. Make sure the name is "Exact item name".png

When you put the template in the upload summary box, the templates will automatically add the appropriate category associated with the image. MAKE SURE its the exact name as it is in game, or the result is messy. -- Recent uploads SpineTalkContribs 02:58, November 23, 2015 (UTC)

Wiki Family Photo[edit source]

The Wiki Family Photo is your opportunity to get yourself within the RuneScape Wiki community as a whole, both RuneScape 3 and Old School RuneScape. You can upload your image to the [[w:c:ty|Ty Wiki]] or upload it to imgur. Please try to have your photo sent in by March 1st.

How to send in your picture[edit source]

  1. Take a screenshot in game with your character saying your name/a message
  2. Save the screenshot on paint or any other picture program
  3. Be sure to crop it or scale it to [[w:c:ty:File:200 x 300.png|200 x 300px]]. Note: If your image is not at this size, we will make it this size. If it doesn't come out okay, it may be excluded!
  4. Upload the file to the [[w:c:ty|Ty Wiki]] or imgur
  5. Finally, post a link to your image here.

Re: Detailed images[edit source]

There are two ways that I take large images. One way is to set my display orientation to "Portrait" instead of landscape. This makes it so the osrs client is super zoomed in, though you usually have to flop your monitor/laptop screen on it's side which is a little excessive. Example:

The other way is a recent update to the OSBuddy client. Allows for unlocking of the zoom option so you can zoom faaaaar out, but also faaar in. It isn't a "PRO" feature so anybody can use it to get the best DIIs. Example:

Detailed images[edit source]

Don't forget to resize your detailed images once you upload them. -- Recent uploads SpineTalkContribs 02:34, April 17, 2016 (UTC)

Re:New Teleport Map[edit source]

I like it. Can't see any major issues with it. Mage Hybrid talk 00:07, May 15, 2016 (UTC)

Re:Image Whitelist[edit source]

I don't have to permissions to edit it. Try contacting Wikia Staff. -- Recent uploads SpineTalkContribs 16:00, May 22, 2016 (UTC)

I do not believe that there are Fiyr Shades in the Catcombs of Kourend as the WIki says.. it is the level 140 slayer shades on the west edge.

Watercooler[edit source]

I have made a very very very very interesting topic on the wiki forum. What do you think?Neitiznot (talk) • (editor contributions) 22:45, July 9, 2016 (UTC)

Idea[edit source]

Hey I had an idea for a little community thing, PM me in game, I of course want to run it by Spine first tho --dDbvitC.png Scuzzy Beta hib8CAd.png 18:27, July 22, 2016 (UTC)

Re:Quest experience rewards tables[edit source]

I did make a page for that (Quest requirements) but I forgot to actually link it from anywhere, so slapping an otheruses template etc. at the top of the quest experience rewards page for example should make it a bit more used/noticed. Thanks for the report.

Identical images[edit source]

I believe the wiki policy was to keep separate files even when images share the same graphical models. It just improves organization and in the event the object was ever changed there would be a history associated and it would be easier to update.

Mainpage ideas[edit source]

So I started coming up with concepts to fill that mainpage gap, you can take a look here, where I integrated your polls. It's hard-coded in, if theres anyway to integrate an automatic system, that would be neat too. I'll ask around for that - In the meantime I want to hear your thoughts. --dDbvitC.png Scuzzy Beta hib8CAd.png 15:24, May 4, 2017 (UTC)

Retake plox[edit source]

retake this with your magic ways. --dDbvitC.png Scuzzy Beta hib8CAd.png 18:31, May 24, 2017 (UTC)

What even are stick traps[edit source]

can you check the validity of this? It seems to be a point of minor edit conflict and I cba to check myself right now. --dDbvitC.png Scuzzy Beta hib8CAd.png 15:06, May 31, 2017 (UTC)

Mlp OSRS chats?[edit source]

A bit off topic but noticed your pic. Been looking to see if there were any clan chats or anything for mlp fans (as i've been away for about 2 years and no-one i knew plays OSRS anymore. wanting to find people to chat to), but nothing active seems to come up.

Well anyways if you know anything or would like a chat, please let me know in my page, but either way you can delete this message after you've read it :p

Thanks :) --Lord Smoke (talk) 16:25, October 12, 2017 (UTC)

Reading cache diffs[edit source]

Am I understanding correctly from User:Brok Enwings/Caches/diffs/193.2 the "cost" to be equivalent to Template:Infobox item value? If so, there's quite many Trailblazer items with updated values? 00:26, 29 January 2021 (UTC)

Yes that is correct. The change was made on January 6th as you can see on the item's pages. For example: Trailblazer_top_(t2)#changes (except for Trailblazer graceful ornament kit which i added now)─ Reanimate Aviansie icon (mobile).png BrokTalk 10:05, 29 January 2021 (UTC)

Explanation Cache diffs[edit source]

Dear Brok,

Recently I have been fixing some wanted pages. A lot of wanted pages come from your cache diffs. I don't really understand what these cache diffs are, and therefore I don't know if all red links in your caches should or should not get a page. Could you elaborate a bit on this?

Cheers! TheGuyWhoWantedToHaveAnIpAdressInHisUsernameWhichWasNotAllowed (talk) 10:58, 28 April 2021 (UTC)

It compares dumped json files and stores the diff inside a wiki table. For items and npcs I'd say pretty much all of them deserve a page. Objects can be a case by case situation. Like, i don't think something trivial such as Stairs or Table (except for POH) needs a page but rather important objects would make sense to have. Hope this answers your question ─ Reanimate Aviansie icon (mobile).png BrokTalk 17:54, 28 April 2021 (UTC)
Thank you, that explains things a lot. I am still not sure what to do with several of these "wanted" pages. E.g. these diffs contain a lot of items that do have rs pages, but do not exist in osrs (Such as Scarabite Notes and 1/3 evil turnip). Do you want all these pages to be redirected to Nonexistence, or do we want pages for items like those (Considering Template:RS3 warning I think we do not), or do you want these red links to become texts (These can be colored texts such that they resemble red links, or just be white texts.) or do you want them to be redirects to the relevant rs wiki pages?
Other things, such as Kwuarm and Peas do not exist and might have never existed. I cannot take any info on this item from mood, as it doesn't exist there anymore, and the use of this item might be limited. The only place it is referenced on this wiki is here, which might have not even been this exact item. What should we do with these kind of red links?
My point here is that Special:WantedPages should be a somewhat useful page, and if it is cluttered with things that should not exist, it is less useful, so I ask how you think this can be accomplished best.

The Rs2 diff was mostly a test and i deleted the page. ─ Reanimate Aviansie icon (mobile).png BrokTalk 19:48, 16 May 2021 (UTC)

Hyperlinking IDs from cache dumps to SMW or Chisel[edit source]

Hi, would it be possible for you to wrap the column with ID numbers with hyperlinks to either SMW pages here on wiki or to Chisel toolserver? I am often able to associate "null" NPCs by IDs to their respective articles, although it's not currently straightforward to search those IDs by said ID from your cache dump pages with one click. 20:46, 28 October 2021 (UTC)

I think that would be possible. Can do some testing probably today or tomorrow ─ Reanimate Aviansie icon (mobile).png BrokTalk 15:58, 30 October 2021 (UTC)

Do you have any old computers you played RuneScape on?[edit source]

Hi Brok Enwings!

Recently we've been trying to recover lost versions of RuneScape that Jagex didn't save. We're asking anybody who played from 2001-2012 to check old computers, laptops, hard drives, or backups for old RuneScape files.

Your userpage says you've been playing since 2007, so it's very likely that you have one of the missing versions. It would be great if you could search any old devices you may have so that these older versions of RuneScape aren't lost forever.

If you have any questions, feel free to join our Discord which shows the specific files we are looking for in full detail, and where people can help guide you through the search. Alternatively you can read our page on the Lost Media Wiki, and leave a message on my talk page.
