Zeah[edit source]

Template:No official name was added to Zeah as the name itself, and all references to it, were removed alongside (arceuus/lova etc) "houses" in an update. iN008talk 18:27, 24 July 2019 (UTC)

Lady Iorwerth[edit source]

Where did you get this info? I don't recall seeing it, unless I missed it somewhere. -- Recent uploads SpineTalkContribs 19:17, 22 August 2019 (UTC)

Iorwerth mentions her during SotE. In the cutscene where he takes the orb of light from Baxtorian Exaldin (talk) 19:20, 22 August 2019 (UTC)

Edits[edit source]

You've been doing a lot of nice stuff. Ever consider joining our Discord server, "The RuneScape Wikis"? Most of us editors are there to help each other out and chat. -- Recent uploads SpineTalkContribs 03:07, 2 September 2019 (UTC)

Thank you. It's nice to be acknowledged for one's work. I didn't quite how to respond, but I'm grateful, that you value the content I provide. I did visit the discord server, but I wasn't quite sure what to do with myself there, but thanks. Exaldin (talk) 17:14, 2 October 2019 (UTC)

Disambig[edit source]

Hi, I reverted the disambig page move for Justiciar. Justiciar is not used in game for anything, which means that redirect was unnecessary. Shoyrukon (talk) 22:55, 10 November 2019 (UTC)

Sorry, got a bit ahead of myself. But give me a moment and you'll see. Exaldin (talk) 23:00, 10 November 2019 (UTC)

Novels + project[edit source]

Much like Postbag from the Hedge issues 22 onwards, the novels aren't considered canon on Old School as they were released after the 2007 backup, though you could always tweet a jmod to see if they consider the books canon or not.

As a side note, I've started a new project that may be of interest to you. User:IN008/Projects/Transcript subjects. iN008talk 18:34, 15 December 2019 (UTC)

Vote in the Weird Gloop elections![edit source]

Hi Exaldin!

Because of your involvement with the wiki, you are eligible to vote on the candidates for the board of Weird Gloop, the company that hosts the RuneScape and Old School RuneScape wikis.

See meta:Weird Gloop elections for general information about this process (and how to vote – it'll take maybe 5 minutes), and meta:Weird Gloop elections/2019/Candidates for candidate presentations.

There are 4 candidates for OSRSW and 4 candidates for RSW, and 1 candidate for pt-RSW. If you'd like to influence who represents the voices of these communities inside the company, I strongly encourage you to vote! You are one of only 204 people that meet the requirements, and this is your opportunity to help shape the future of the wikis.

Thanks! ʞooɔ 01:00, 23 December 2019 (UTC)

Battles and wars[edit source]

I've closed the discussion for Forum:Battles and wars. Pages can be made for the navbox, if applicable to OSRS. Per Mod Ed, Old School is an alternate take on the same universe as RuneScape, and most of the key events are the same, but there are differences in how they come about, as seen in A Taste of Hope and Song of the Elves. As there are currently no known events that are referenced in game prior to the August 2007 Archive of RuneScape that conflict with established RuneScape lore, they can be considered canon for OSRS. -- Recent uploads SpineTalkContribs 02:22, 16 March 2020 (UTC)

King Lathas and the (now removed) Head mourner[edit source]

We recently decided to change the names of some pages, as you might have seen in Forum:The curious case of the sea slugs. While implementing these changes, I noticed you had added a lot of information to the King Lathas page using Template:CiteNPC, citing the now-removed Head mourner (removed). I wasn't sure if I should remove the citations altogether, change the citation to the new pagename at "Head mourner (removed)", change the citation to Essylt (who replaced the head mourner), or something else. What do you think? BigDiesel2m (talk) 23:06, 25 March 2020 (UTC)

Yes, let's do that. I don't have the option to see what has changed in the old quests, but if the dialogue is the same, we should probably just change it to the current version. Exaldin (talk) 11:39, 28 March 2020 (UTC)

Reverted some of your tidying up[edit source]

Hey Exaldin!

I reverted some changes like this https://oldschool.runescape.wiki/w/Assembler_max_cape?type=revision&diff=12585722&oldid=12461844

Because the bots that run in the background rely on the switch tabs to be identical between the Item Infobox on the right as well as the Infobox Bonuses

Cheers

Discord accounts[edit source]

Hey Exaldin! Not sure if this is intentional or not, but it appears that you have possibly ~20 different Discord accounts. Not sure if you're making new ones for privacy concerns or something, or if there's something we can help you with regarding Discord. Just thought I'd say something, would hate for it to be some weird issue that could be remedied. :) Legaia2Pla · ʟ · 16:06, 5 July 2020 (UTC)

That was not intended, I didn't realize, that it works that way. But yes, it is mainly due to privacy. By all means delete them. Apologies. Exaldin (talk) 15:50, 6 July 2020 (UTC)
No worries, just wanted to make sure it was intentional. Legaia2Pla · ʟ · 14:44, 7 July 2020 (UTC)

Fun weapons[edit source]

Are Snowballs, Beach boxing gloves etc. considered fun weapons? --The scribe Eek, a goblin! 22:59, 26 July 2020 (UTC)

Good question, no idea to be honest, the mud pie just didn't seem to fit in. Maybe I was wrong. Exaldin (talk) 23:11, 26 July 2020 (UTC)
You were right about the mud pie. I can see how lowering run energy can have an useful effect in PVP. Diango's claws and such, not so much :) --The scribe Eek, a goblin! 23:14, 26 July 2020 (UTC)

A furious message[edit source]

I am just wondering if it is accurate to describe the Kingdom music track as being unlocked in the Death Plateau, since Tremble plays in most of that area and it is already unlocked around most of the Warrior's Guild Hlwys (talk) 00:45, 6 August 2020 (UTC)

why did you remove the chatheads?[edit source]

what was the point of removing the chathead images from the Daddy's Home article? They help liven up the piece. there was no reason to remove them in my opinion Remyma (talk) 18:30, 26 August 2020 (UTC)

Do you want a free wiki t-shirt?[edit source]

Hi Exaldin!

To celebrate the two-year anniversary of the new site, we're giving away RuneScape Wiki t-shirts to a bunch of wiki editors. Because of your contributions to the community over the last year, we'd like to send you one! If you're interested, go fill out this form, and we'll get those shipped out before the end of the month.

If you have any questions, shoot me a talk page message or a DM on Discord (Cook#2222). Thanks!

Rollback[edit source]

Hey, I noticed you were undoing vandalism using the 'undo' button and manually pressing save, and I was wondering why you're not a rollbacker. If you want (and if you've read the relevant pages for rollbackers) I can give you rollback rights so you can undo edits that are clearly bad-faith edits a bit more easily. It's really not a big deal, so just let me know if you'd like that. Joeytje50 (talk) 16:22, 11 February 2021 (UTC)

Hey and thank you, it could be useful to have and if you think I'm qualified, then I accept. Exaldin (talk) 16:30, 11 February 2021 (UTC)
Sorry, I didn't see your reaction any sooner. Yeah for sure, no biggie; I've given you rollback rights now. By the way, are you in Discord as well? There are a few people who have similar names to your wiki name, but I'm not sure if any of them is you. Joeytje50 (talk) 17:18, 12 February 2021 (UTC)
Thank you. I don't have a user on discord, but use the name Exal on discord, so if you've encountered one, it was probably me. I am not to keen on Discord, because I find I don't communicate well with other members. Exaldin (talk) 12:04, 19 February 2021 (UTC)

2021 Birthday event animal articles[edit source]

I'm concerned you may not have attributed the page history correctly when copying from Cow (2021 Birthday event) to Monkey on cow, and without using the move tool. But also, I regret that your edits are incorrect now; not all of the NPC IDs have the name "Monkey on cow", some are simply "Cow", and they also have vastly different models. I would undo your edits. 84.250.12.111 11:56, 19 February 2021 (UTC)

I apologize, but I think the pages in questions were far too complicated with null objects, confusing IDs and so forth. I was intending to make it more readable for people who don't read the wikis in numbers and objects. I may have made mistakes, but I can not in good faith return them to how they were before. Exaldin (talk) 12:01, 19 February 2021 (UTC)
I intend to give the versions proper names, at least once I'm done with writing RuneScape:Varbit/11833 and experiencing the full event to get a clear understanding. 84.250.12.111 12:03, 19 February 2021 (UTC)
I hope we can piece things back together again, when you're done then. We are talking about three relatively mundane pages: sheep, cow and unicorn. So it shouldn't be that difficult to solve. Exaldin (talk) 12:11, 19 February 2021 (UTC)

I've fixed the following so far:

The human NPCs justified their own pages to make sense of the NPC IDs. It should be no problem to fix the remaining issues, all in due time. 84.250.12.111 18:23, 19 February 2021 (UTC)

Great! Exaldin (talk) 19:13, 19 February 2021 (UTC)

Bob (smith)'s NPC ID[edit source]

Was it accidental to replace Bob (smith)'s NPC ID 2812 with 6799 in Special:Diff/14016674? It looks like Steve has NPC ID 6799. 84.250.12.111 16:22, 19 February 2021 (UTC)

Thanks for correcting that. I used Steve as template for Bob's infobox and must have mixed some of those IDs up. Exaldin (talk) 19:12, 19 February 2021 (UTC)

Master Chef[edit source]

Hey, just wanted to leave a talk message about my undo since a couple of people were actually just discussing this npc in the wiki discord, but it seems like Master Navigator was added to a test version of the tutorial island that only some players got sent to when making a new account. You can see that test variant of the island here. I'm fairly sure it's still on the actual map although it's possible that Master Chef then replaced Master Navigator on that test variant too, but we do have multiple accounts of new characters seeing Master Chef since the release date of Master Navigator. It's also possible that that entire test version is defunct and unused now, there's a user that claims to have an account trapped on that test island and hasn't seen any new players there when they login to it. That could imply it's unused now or even that maybe it's an instance. zTUG5mD.png Crow 653  19:05, 26 March 2021 (UTC)

Huh? Sounds a bit odd, but if it's wrong then by all means revert it. Still, could it be phrased in a way to imply that the Master Chef lorewise was assigned as Master Navigator? I feel like there should be some link saying that these two characters lorewise are the same person. 20:40, 26 March 2021 (UTC)
