Personal images[edit source]

We do not host personal images on the OSRS Wiki as per The Image and Media Policy. I have removed the image File:Farming outfit 14 June 2014.png. You may upload your image to any image hosting website and link the image from there. Please do not reupload the image to the wiki. Thanks, BGUyLfN.png CJaW7Er.png 19:26, July 2, 2014 (UTC)

Doesn't it say to use your own images, like screenshots that you take? That's what I used.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Lunar Farmer (talk) on 06:29, July 3, 2014‎ (UTC).

The image was of no relevance to pages on this wiki, and seemed to be intended for your personal use. Screenshots we take are intended for articles on the Wiki. -- Recent uploads SpineTalkContribs 05:31, July 3, 2014 (UTC)
Sorry I misquoted the wrong policy. You are correct about user taken images. Images must be taken in-game. Spineweilder has answered why I deleted the images.
As for linking pages (*The square brackets matter)
  • OSRS pages: [[pagename|displayname(optional)]]
  • External webpages [http://www.webpage.url displayname(optional)]
  • OSRS IMG: [[File:filename.png]]
  • External IMG: URL
These links have more info if you are interested:
The images must be used on an article in the mainspace. Since the picture you uploaded was intended for your userspace, it is against the policy RS:NOT#... your web host. Does this clarify your question? BGUyLfN.png CJaW7Er.png 05:49, July 3, 2014 (UTC)

Naming conventions[edit source]

We attempt to use in game names as much as possible. If there is a confusion there will be either a disambiguation page or an Template:Otheruses will be used.

Good job[edit source]

Thanks for adding in information around the 2007wiki. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to ask any of the admins around. Oh yeah, you don't need to report to me when editing. The talk messages to you were only to let you know why I undo/changed your edits.

P.S. When you are linking 2007 pages, use [[PAGENAME|Display Text (optional)]]. You dont' need to hyperlink the full url.

RE:Advice[edit source]

If you use GIMP here is a guide created by User:Spineweilder that explains the basis of adding transparency. It involves adding an Alpha Layer and removing the excess background you do not want. Since we don't have to bother with Anti-Aliasing in OSRS. You can just use the Magic Tool instead of the Lasso to crop out the background, etc.

As for the drop tables on monster pages. We use the Template:DropsTableHead followed by the Template:DropsLine templates. I have included a simplified version below. If you want to read on the additional parameters used in DropsLine, read the supporting document file.

{[DropsLine|Name=itemname|Quantity=number|rarity=Common/Uncommon/Rare/Very rare}}

Hope this answers all your questions. BGUyLfN.png CJaW7Er.png 02:13, July 16, 2014 (UTC)

RE:Worried about advertiser[edit source]

No it's not allowed, they only CC the Wiki will ever mention are the Jagex CC. Thanks BGUyLfN.png CJaW7Er.png 21:29, July 19, 2014 (UTC)

Forking[edit source]

Hey, this message is to let you know about this thread about forking away from Wikia/Fandom, just incase you missed it. This is also a great opportunity for you to give any feedback for the fork site and propose anything you'd like to see going forward. - iN008talk 21:07, September 26, 2018 (UTC)
