What this page is forEdit

  • Protecting/unprotecting pages. Highly visible pages or content that may have links from outside websites are encouraged to have some level of protection. This can also include a request for administrators to try and calm down an edit war. This should be done according to the Runescape:Protection policy.
  • Moving/renaming protected pages and files. Due to vandals' mis-use of the page move tool, some pages are protected from being renamed except by an administrator. If you can make a compelling case for a page move, or consensus has been reached on the respective discussion page related to the page you think needs to be renamed, formal requests for the page move can happen here. New contributors to this wiki or "anonymous" users wishing to rename a page that don't have the page move option available to them yet are also welcome to make such requests on this page.
  • Minor edits to protected pages. This is mostly on protected templates that can have a substantial impact on the whole wiki if they are changed, so caution is urged when they are modified.
  • Announcements that are intended to be across the whole wiki. This appears on MediaWiki:Sitenotice, and should be something that would be of interest to the whole community.
  • Importing pages from another wiki. While seldom used for content on this wiki, this is an option that is available for bringing in content from another wiki and preserving its edit history, which requires administrator rights. This may involve some special actions on the part of Wikia Central to open this option between two MediaWiki projects, so be patient if you wish to make this sort of request. MediaWiki importing tools can sometimes be buggy, so be gentle on volunteer administrators doing this task.
  • Hiding revisions and/or edit summaries. In the case of blatant copyright violations, significantly offensive material, identity establishing information, or any other content that poses a major risk to the wiki or its editors, the revision(s) may be hidden using Special:RevisionDelete.
  • General questions to the administrators of this wiki. You might get a faster reply by posting on the User help page; however, the administrators here will try to help you to the best of their abilities.

What this page is not forEdit

  • Problems that do not require administrator tools to complete. Instead, please visit the user help page.
  • Problem users who may be vandalising content pages. Instead, please note the user that may be causing problems on the Counter-Vandalism Unit page.
  • Requests to become an administrator. If you are interested in learning what an administrator does or how you can become one, please visit the Administrators page for information about administrators and Requests for adminship page for the process to become an administrator.
  • General discussions about administrator behaviour. Most policy discussions, including policies that govern administrators, ought to be started on the watercooler and kept to that forum for input from the larger RS wiki community.
  • Minor requests for deletion. If you've accidentally duplicated content or wish to just clean up a mess you've made on the wiki, you should simply tag the page with {{D|Reason(s) for nomination}}.

Note: Please only make requests on this page that specifically require sysop tools to fulfill.

Unable to add articleEdit

Im trying to add an article about broken armour but it keeps getting rejected because of the "anti-meme" filter. I have copied the source code for later. I was wondering how i would go about circumventing this issue.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Reapify (talk) on 18:55, October 21, 2015‎ (UTC).

Trying to find some information I yesterday went to the Help:Content page. And I found out that it needs a major overhaul. First, nearly all of the links go to the rs3 wiki, not the 2007 one - and many, maybe even most of those even go to pages which say that the page either never existed or was deleted.

I found out that most of the pages that are tried to link to exist on the 2007scape wiki - just are called differently. Most of them I found hiding in the Categories Policies, Guidelines, 2007scape Wiki and one in Essays.

Even having found most of those pages, I do not feel capable of making the required changes - not on something like a Help-page. I believe this would best be done by an Admin who knows what is where, and possibly even can delete links that do not exist or create the required pages. So I posted here, even if this matter does not fit exactly into the description.

Extension hook bad words Edit

In making a quick guide for RFD I, again, encountered the extensin hook error. I traced it down to the word "n*ts", as in monkey n*ts. I had to replace all instances with the word "nots" to get it to publish but this obviously needs fixing. Is there a way I can get around this filter or does an admin need to do it?  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Wohefosjdf (talk) on 00:49, January 14, 2017‎.

I'll take a look at this. BGUyLfN.png CJaW7Er.png 02:13, January 14, 2017 (UTC)

Editing a pageEdit

I was looking to edit the P2P Cooking Guide, and add in the costs of raw fish at each level ( 1-15 Shrimp, etc), and the selling value of these cooked fish. When I tried to publish the edit, the automatic anti-vandalism tool told me that it would not be published and that would need to be looked at by an admin. Is there anywhere I could put these changes to be reviewed and added by a moderator?  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Vesperiant (talk) on 21:17, March 29, 2017.

I think the file page for the TzRekJad image should be renamed "TzRek-Jad" to match the case of the item ingame. I don't have the ability to rename the page directly, and trying to change it by uploading a new file didn't work, because I couldn't edit the "destination filename" box. I also couldn't figure out how to link directly to the page without just inserting the image, but oh well.
JohnSixxScott (talk) 22:07, June 16, 2017 (UTC)

I've updated the naming conventions. For future reference, when linking a file, put a colon in front of the word "file", so it looks like
[[:File:Mainpage logo.png]]
. The end result will be File:Mainpage logo.png. --Sucy_orb_2.png Scuzzy BetaLuna_Nova_sigil.png 23:15, June 16, 2017 (UTC)

Puzzle boxEdit

HeirApparently deleted a seperate puzzle box guide page, but did so without transfering its information. Is there anyway to bring it it back???

I used the information on both pages, and one is gone now, seemingly forever. Can you bring back the puzzle box/guide page??  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Bivathon (talk) on 18:48, July 27, 2017‎.

Adding to an ArticleEdit

I'm trying to add to the Free-to-play Ranged training guide article by adding in a maximum hit table. I was able to add the table to the article but when I later tried to edit in some links and make some other minor changes I was unable to due to it matching the abuse rule: prevent common nonsense.

I've also had a problem with the filter, claims I'm trying to add inappropriate words and I'm not sure what's causing that. Anyways, if an admin could overwrite the current stuff on Monster with the text from my sandbox, I'd appreciate it --Shockstorm (talk) 06:31, September 17, 2017 (UTC)
I've edited monster for you. I'm about to check what triggered the abuse filter for the ranged training guide. I'll post my findings in a sec. --Sucy_orb_2.png Scuzzy BetaLuna_Nova_sigil.png 00:28, September 18, 2017 (UTC)
Just editing this page Speedy Keith (like changing "wilderness" to "Wilderness") gives "innappopriate words" and won't allow it to be edited --Shockstorm (talk) 01:36, October 12, 2017 (UTC)
I've published your edit, the abuse filter seems to have picked up "Speedy Keith".

File Move Edit

Requesting to move The_Lady_of_the_Lake_Chathead.png to The_Lady_of_the_Lake_chathead.png as the chathead doesn't show up in the Merlin's Crystal template unless "chathead" is lowercase.


07:18, March 23, 2018 (UTC)

The image has now been renamed.

Rock crabs missing loot info. Edit

Rock crabs can drop edible seaweed x2 too. Not just sand crabs. this is useful information for ironman accounts that get edible seaweed as a requirement for the fairytale part 1 quest to obtain the magical secateurs.

It already has this on their drop table Talk-to Kelsey 11:53, March 29, 2018 (UTC)

OSRS Wiki Spanish TranslationsEdit

As many of you, fellow wikians and OSRS players might've noticed, the Spanish speaking community has grown large the last few years and we see more and more of them through time. I have realized some of them have some trouble understanding the wiki since English isn't their first language. I've spoken about it with a few friends and we've decided we may have some time to translate the wiki to Spanish in our free time, while doing any afk tasks in-game. This would be helpful to those who don't speak English well or don't speak it at all. Of course, it'd be better to have the ability to choose a language in the wiki instead of having a separate wiki for Spanish speaking users, hence why I'm requesting the ability to open articles in Spanish just like you would in Wikipedia. If this wasn't able to go through, we'd start a separate wiki anyways, since the idea is to help the community. Obviously this could probably work for other languages too, given that the users want to translate articles themselves.

Updating the Rune Pick monster table Edit

I could not figure out how to insert a row in the Dropping monster table for Rune PickaxeRune Pickaxe  It needs an addition for the Possessed pickaxe . Thanks

Added it in :) thanks Talk-to Kelsey 12:59, April 8, 2018 (UTC)

Adding new page Edit

I'm trying to add "Abstract mural" as a new page, but it refuses to get created because of "inappropriate words". The article's content doesn't seem to matter as it refuses to get created. I think it has something to do with the name "Abstract mural". Can I request to create this page? /Antwan\ (Talk) 12:01, April 29, 2018 (UTC)

Done. Not sure why it was tripping the filter though. address (talk) 12:47, April 29, 2018 (UTC)

Unable to edit Vorkath page for "inappropriate words" Edit

Unable to modify the Vorkath/Strategies page due to "inappropriate

  • Poison Pool Quickfire Barrage: Launches acid around the arena and proceeds to fire a barrage of 25 dragonfires at the player. Any damage taken while standing on the acid heals Vorkath for the same amount; up to 10 damage per tick. Should the player stand still, the dragonfire barrage deals 30-40 damage per hit regardless of prayers. Additionally, Vorkath takes 50% reduced damage until the special attack ends.
  • Zombified Ice Dragonfire: Vorkath freezes the player in place with damageless ice dragonfire, then summons a zombified spawn immediately after. While the spawn is alive, Vorkath is immune to all damage. The spawn moves towards the player and explodes on impact dealing up to 60 damage. The spawn does less damage the lower its hitpoints are before impact. Players should queue the Crumble Undead spell and click on the spawn as soon as it lands to kill the spawn in one hit and prevent all damage. Players are freed ,Vorkath's immunity ends, and the special attack phase is over once the spawn is killed.

Ranged = The dragon hunter crossbow is the most effective weapon to use against Vorkath though its high cost may make it too expensive for most players. The crossbow's passive effect damage and accuracy boosts stack with the Salve amulet (e)/Salve amulet(ei) and void knight set allowing players to hit in the 70s without special effects at 99 ranged. Players can also equip a Book of law to increase accuracy or an anti-dragonfire shield to nullify or dampen dragon damage in conjunction with a Super antifire potion. Players should use Protect from Missiles with any form of anti-dragonfire shield and Protect from Magic if using the Book of law

The Toxic blowpipe is a significantly cheaper yet still effective method of killing Vorkath. Players should still use Void Knight equipment but replace the ammo slot with a God blessing and bring a defence-reduction special attack weapon. Players should use Protect from Magic with the blowpipe along with a Super antifire potion. Players should use a Bandos godsword or Dragon warhammer at the start of the fight to reduce Vorkath's defence. After each successful Vorkath kill or failure to reduce Vorkath's defence with both special attacks, players should replenish their special attack bars with an Ornate rejuvenation pool or the Clan Wars FFA portal.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Jetbent (talk) on 15:07, June 3, 2018‎.

You seem to have already edited what you were intending to. The abuse filter wasn't happy with words ending with an 's' and starting with 'hit'. ~ HeirA_sig.png HeirApparently (talk) 18:33, June 5, 2018 (UTC)
