.gif files[edit source]

Heya, could you upload inanimated images in .png format? And would be nice if you could crop them and remove the shadows from the icon images, too. If you need any help, PM me. — Habblet (talk) 21:20, March 8, 2013 (UTC)

I believe it is because the files you upload are already .gif format in your computer, thus cannot be upload to .png format on the wiki. Try opening the file in GIMP (if you have it downloaded) and saving it as .png (you can also use GIMP to autocrop the image and remove the icon shadow). If you decide to download it, should you not have it, PM me if you need any help on it! — Habblet (talk) 14:44, March 9, 2013 (UTC)

You should get rid of the black background, makes it hard on my eyes to read :P nice page though. -Shaun Dreclin (talk) 06:05, March 15, 2013 (UTC)

Re:File uploading problems[edit source]

If Special:Upload is telling you that it has detected that the file in question is not actually in the portable network graphics format, it is right. Changing a file's extension to '.png' does nothing, please ensure that the file which you are attempting to upload is actually in the portable network graphics format, and hasn't merely had its extension altered.

User:Metallicanrana/Slayer[edit source]

Hey, I'd just like to acknowledge how good your Slayer page looks. Keep it up. -- Recent uploads SpineTalkContribs 02:01, May 29, 2014 (UTC)

Images[edit source]

They seem resized. You mind getting the original size? -- Recent uploads SpineTalkContribs 02:05, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

Re: Images[edit source]

They seem resized. You mind getting the original size? -- Recent uploads SpineTalkContribs 02:05, July 8, 2014 (UTC)
I personally snapshotted those pictures from in-game, and that's their original size. Thus, they came out like that. You can always click on the pics themselves, and it should blow up to regular size. Nonetheless, I did my best, and that's the best I can do. All in all, it's still better than having no pics at all.

Re:Underground Pass Edit Denied[edit source]

I've put what you intended to place on the article. -- Recent uploads SpineTalkContribs 05:53, August 3, 2014 (UTC)

Re:File:H.A.M. Dungeon Map.png[edit source]

All wikis are currently experiencing a bug in its image cache architecture. When users upload a new version of an existing file, the version displayed as current may remain as the previous version, but with the dimensions of the new version, causing it to stretch or squash. If so, the file history also displays the previous, incorrect version as current. -- Recent uploads SpineTalkContribs 17:31, August 12, 2014 (UTC)

Re:Barrows Equipment Edit Denied[edit source]

Yeah I looked through it, and can't tell what kind of bad language is contained within. I placed whatever changes you attempted to make on the page. Should be good now. -- Recent uploads SpineTalkContribs 02:04, October 9, 2014 (UTC)

Taken Image[edit source]

Hi, it seems to be that you've taken one of the images for the Fight Cave strategy guide from a Zybez forum. I'd prefer we don't take images from other sites, but if I remember correctly the RuneScape 3 Wiki has an old version of the map, which we could use. -- Recent uploads SpineTalkContribs 02:54, October 12, 2014 (UTC)

Re:Creating this Page[edit source]

Sorry it took so long; I was busy irl. Here's the page. -- Recent uploads SpineTalkContribs 03:30, December 1, 2014 (UTC)

Done. -- Recent uploads SpineTalkContribs 20:55, December 1, 2014 (UTC)
Done. Apologies, I'm not really sure what's triggering the filter, but I'll give you custodian user rights so you won't experience such inconveniences in the future. -- Recent uploads SpineTalkContribs 03:30, December 2, 2014 (UTC)

Module:Family tree[edit source]

It didn't work because you were missing an important page: Module:Family tree/data. I made both, so family trees should work exactly as they do on the RS3 wiki. Also, friendly reminder to say where you take text from. If you copy a page/template/module from the other wiki verbatim, put something like "Taken from rs3 wiki" as your summary. moluɐɯ 23:11, January 4, 2015 (UTC)

RE: Trading Post[edit source]

The information you added was unnecessary to the article. Information regarding items and the Trading Post was wrong as well, as you can still sell items on the Post if you're trading another person to that person.

Patrolling vandalism[edit source]

A few months ago, me and Mage Hybrid discussed about patrolling for vandalism. We simply checked for any edit made after the last edit we made. For example, if I were to check for vandalism in Special:RecentActivity, I'd check the edits that were made after Mage Hyrbid's last edit. I'd like to make a list of users in my head that are fairly active who would do the same.

In the future, when you are checking for vandalism, I'd like you to just check the edits after the edits of the following users: Me, You, Mage Hyrbid, Icejunito, and ExpectRS. If you're confused just post on my talk page. -- Recent uploads SpineTalkContribs 03:04, May 24, 2015 (UTC)

Duplicate image upload[edit source]

Information While we do appreciate your attempt to improve the wiki, your upload is of a subject that already exists as another file uploaded to the Old School RuneScape Wiki. Most files' names follow the laid-out nomenclature, so you may search the wiki for the file containing your subject before you upload it or look at the existing images used on the subject's article. Temujin 12:15, August 19, 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:Imagemap[edit source]

Sorry :( ; I thought we didn't have a namespace for it, until I noticed there's two others. If you're willing to put in the effort to make more of these, be my guest. -- Recent uploads SpineTalkContribs 04:08, October 29, 2016 (UTC)

[[:File:Shaman range spot.png|If you could turn off third-party overlays]], I'd appreciate it. -- Recent uploads SpineTalkContribs 03:21, December 4, 2016 (UTC)

Discord[edit source]

As you might have noticed, the RS Wiki is now an official Discord Partner. Well that doesn't really affect stuff here much, so that's cool.

I recommend that you join the Discord server, mostly to keep in touch with other Wikia members, in particular admins from both the RS Wiki and this wiki. You don't have to, but we, the cool kids (as in me, BombooPro, Brok Enwings, Sword Frog (Jekyll), Scuzzy Beta, and Shoyrukon), are here if you ever deicide to. -- Recent uploads SpineTalkContribs 04:18, March 4, 2017 (UTC)

I'm assuming you're taking those gifs. Please unequip all items except for the cosmetics, per RuneScape:Images and media policy --dDbvitC.png Scuzzy Beta hib8CAd.png 16:01, March 10, 2017 (UTC)

RuneScape 2[edit source]

Hey, could you go through the RuneScape 2 page like you did with Jagex? Was a big help. Thanks ~ --dDbvitC.png Scuzzy Beta hib8CAd.png 14:30, April 9, 2017 (UTC)

Redirects[edit source]

Good job with the redirects. If possible can you help out with redirecting with the terms found here Special:SearchDigest? Thanks BGUyLfN.png CJaW7Er.png 02:26, April 10, 2017 (UTC)

Do they get that one on osrs, for sure? --dDbvitC.png Scuzzy Beta hib8CAd.png 23:36, April 13, 2017 (UTC)

RS3 image upload

Information While we do appreciate your attempt to improve the wiki, your upload of File:Speedy Keith.png is of a subject that relates to RuneScape 3. This wiki is for the Old School RuneScape game; continuing to upload inappropriate files will be considered vandalism. The relevant wiki for RuneScape 3 servers may be found here. Thank you. --dDbvitC.png Scuzzy Beta hib8CAd.png 03:41, May 29, 2017 (UTC)

Wiki changes to ext images[edit source]

Hello Metallicanrana, Recently, our host site, Wikia is in talks of disallowing external images (such as the ones hosted on your profile) to work. However, before this change happens, I'd like to tell you a couple ways around it.

  1. {{R}} is an external image resizer that can be used in conjunction with direct links to images from other wikis. As such,
  2. I invite you to use my personal wiki as a host for all the external images displayed on your page.

Of course, if you have your own wiki, I suggest you do that to, but its ultimately up to you. This is a response to changes discussed on A Fandom Staff's talk page. To clarify again, soon, imgur/photobucket images will NO LONGER BE SUPPORTED.

I just wanted to give you a heads up prior to this change - I hope my personal wiki can serve to help. --dDbvitC.png Scuzzy Beta hib8CAd.png 20:12, June 13, 2017 (UTC)

Okay, so basically you upload an image to my wiki the same way you'd upload an image here, as theres an add a new file button to the top right of Special:Images. Simply upload a file, grab the direct link: for example,
(try to exclude everything after the file extension.), and paste it where the imgur links are. Right now, I think {{Extimage}} can still be used, because I have to look into something that may or may not be breaking {{R}}, but I hope i cleared things up. --dDbvitC.png Scuzzy Beta hib8CAd.png 20:27, June 13, 2017 (UTC)

CiteTwitter[edit source]

Hey, I know you're pretty much in charge of the citation templates, so I was wondering if there was a CiteTwitter template such as on the Main wiki? If not, do you mind copying one over? Thanks. --dDbvitC.png Scuzzy Beta hib8CAd.png 18:51, July 9, 2017 (UTC)

thanks! --dDbvitC.png Scuzzy Beta hib8CAd.png 20:43, July 9, 2017 (UTC)

Shaman images[edit source]

Hi, there are three images about lizardman shaman safespotting in Special:UnusedFiles. Are you planning to use them for anything? Otherwise, I'll delete them. -- Recent uploads SpineTalkContribs 02:35, July 20, 2017 (UTC)

Tournaments[edit source]

Hey, I made a general use infobox for tournaments, since I figured it'd be worth documenting as per RS:G. You can see it in use on this page. The template is {{Infobox Event Other}}. I was wondering if you could help make pages for previous tournaments, such as LMS and Deadman Mode Seasonals. Thanks, --dDbvitC.png Scuzzy Beta hib8CAd.png 19:54, August 26, 2017 (UTC)

re: special attacks[edit source]

Gifs[edit source]

Are gifs really needed for Vorkath's attacks on Vorkath/Strategies? I think still images would provide enough of a demonstration. -- Recent uploads SpineTalkContribs 02:29, January 9, 2018 (UTC)

In that case, I suggest removing the third-party thing that appears when you hover over Vorkath. -- Recent uploads SpineTalkContribs 02:40, January 9, 2018 (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 20:49, September 26, 2018 (UTC)

Re: Following pages[edit source]

Afaik watchlist has replaced following pages, Special:EditWatchlist will list all the pages you've marked and theres a bunch of options in preferences for it. iN008talk 18:31, 6 October 2018 (UTC)

W:runescape[edit source]

What are you trying to do with Template:w:runescape? Interwiki links no longer work like that since we are no longer on Wikia. {{RSL}} is perfectly correct. --dDbvitC.png Scuzzy Beta hib8CAd.png 02:27, 7 October 2018 (UTC)

No problem. If you see any links like that, just replace them with {{RSL}} - this future proofs them as well, just in case we need to ever change it. --dDbvitC.png Scuzzy Beta hib8CAd.png 02:33, 7 October 2018 (UTC)
Hey, another thing - Don't link to any wikia wikis, as we want to distance ourself from the platform. --dDbvitC.png Scuzzy Beta hib8CAd.png 04:07, 7 October 2018 (UTC)

Search Digest 2: Electric Boogaloo[edit source]

Hey Metal,
Thought you should be in the know of this page. Cook periodically updates it with search queries that need redirects (ie pretty much exactly the same as how Wikia's Search Digest worked before they discontinued that.) Come help us make redirects! :) --dDbvitC.png Scuzzy Beta hib8CAd.png 21:47, 24 January 2019 (UTC)

Recent edits[edit source]

Hey Metall,
For future reference, please use a singular "they" instead of "he/she" when referring to an ambiguous gender/sex in prose writing. It not only makes the flow of the sentences better, but is more inclusive for more parties. Thank you! --dDbvitC.png Scuzzy Beta hib8CAd.png 20:18, 6 October 2019 (UTC)

Vote in the Weird Gloop elections![edit source]

Hi Metallicanrana!

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)

Money making guide edits[edit source]

I removed the skilling section because linking to Money making guide/Skilling (which only contains a table that is a subset of the table on the page they're already on) is really not helpful. I also don't think saying "go do [Woodcutting/Mining/Fishing/Hunter/Thieving]", in some vague sense is actually helpful at all, since those are skills, rather than specific activities that people could reproduce on their own. Further, most of the methods that would actually be available to F2P players using those methods are quite poor – how are they supposed to know that cutting willow logs for 17 coins each isn't actually a good use of their time, if we tell them to just cut trees?

I think there is certainly room for a more gentle introduction to money making for new players (kind of like Twisted League/Guide/Money making), but this skilling section surely isn't it. ʞooɔ 00:26, 11 January 2020 (UTC)

I can definitely sympathize with that, but the skilling section doesn't really contain any actual information that could be put somewhere else. I think in the other cases we've been removing stuff from the sections, it's either because guides already existed, or the method was extremely bad (like flesh crawlers on members' worlds for about 60k coins an hour). Or in the case of rune running, that specific method (law and nature running) is not done in large numbers by the community anymore. I purposely haven't touched the wyvern one (and I want to make something for lava and astral running) because they are still useful. But in my view the skilling section just doesn't convey any specifics that are useful to new players. ʞooɔ 08:48, 11 January 2020 (UTC)

Motherlode mine profit per hour[edit source]

On, you made an edit on the MLM Page which included the profit per hour, citing a post by Mod John C. Did he provide rates for the probability of mining a pay-dirt? I can't find the post from googling.

Redirecting dragonbreath potion[edit source]

As the masterful redirect-er, I'm wondering where you would stand on this, Dragonbreath potion currently redirects to Antifire potion, what is your position on changing that to Bottled dragonbreath. I can't make a decisive arguement for either. Fjaratalk 15:22, 10 March 2020 (UTC)

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

Hi Metallicanrana!

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!

OSRS Wiki clan[edit source]

Hi Metallicanrana!

The clan system is being added to OSRS tomorrow, and I wanted to let you know that we're making the OSRS Wiki clan for editors and readers of the wiki. There aren't any requirements to join, but we have cosmetic ranks for people who edit. Due to your contributions to the wiki, you're eligible for the >extremely prestigious< Clan icon - Onyx.png Onyx rank.

If you're interested, check out RuneScape:Clan Chat for how to join.

If you're already in another clan, come say hi some time! We're planning to have weekly random fun events for everyone, too. ʞooɔ 01:42, 26 May 2021 (UTC)
