This article is about requests for help from general users. For requests for help needing administrator tools, see 2007scape Wiki:Administrator requests.

Welcome to the 2007scape Wiki User Help page. This page is here to offer a central location for those who are participating with the development of this wiki to make general requests for help. For admin help, click here.

Note to users: Remove requests once they have been fully dealt with. Archive those that have a notable discussion.

Note for requesters - Once a solution has been presented and implemented, please add a comment signifying completion, if the request hasn't already been archived. This is to help other users know when to archive completed requests.


What this page is forEdit

  • Coding help. Requesting help with writing templates, making a nice user page, or any questions on writing wiki-code can be asked here and users will help to the best of their ability.
  • Requests for non-administrative actions. If help is required with an action (such as moving a page), asking users here for help with that action is acceptable.
  • Questions on how the wiki works. All the policies and processes in use on the Old School RuneScape Wiki may seem a little overwhelming at first. If you need help in understanding any of the policies, or more in depth instructions on a process, asking here is a good start.
  • Other questions to the users of the wiki. - While the Watercooler is often a better place, a simple question may be asked here for a quick response.
  • An all-in-one place to put things. Many of the Wiki's procedures are lesser-known, so putting a note here is a good way to do something if the correct procedure is not known.

What this page is not forEdit

  • Requests for actions involving administrator tools. Please use Admin requests for such requests.
  • Larger discussion with other users on policies or other wide-ranging actions. The Watercooler is a more suitable location to discuss larger changes to the Wiki's policies, procedures and high-use templates.
  • General chat (about Old School RuneScape or not). General chat about Old School RuneScape (or an off-topic subject) should be taken to individual user talk pages, or article talk pages when applicable.

Void Knight equipment pageEdit

I'm a noob at this and can't find how to edit in a request, but I hope someone views this. The Void Knight equipment page has some messed up coding going on and I don't know how to debug it. It's under the Bonuses section. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Gamer4792 (talk) on 02:56, October 28, 2014 (UTC).

Triggering the "Bad words" hookEdit

Hi, I'm new here and I wanted to contribute to a page that desperately needed attention. I have written a complete overhaul of the Random event page to reflect the 2014 update and to add more info. However, when I attempt to publish it, I get an error stating I've tripped the "Bad words" hook. I have the source saved in a .txt file. Is there anyone who can review my page to tell me what words are tripping this hook?

Sorry if this isn't the correct place to ask, but if someone can help me with this I would greatly appreciate it! —The preceding unsigned comment was added by ADA Refactor (talk) on 18:48, March 8, 2015 (UTC).

Creating drop table Edit

How do you create a new drop list? Every monster has this nice table, but I can't make it from scratch.

I know how to edit one, but I'd like to know how to make one, so I can put one in the Magic log section and many more in the future.

Can't find any help on that either. I got the DropTableHead going, but nothing else yet. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 12:27, April 4, 2015 (UTC).

For the magic logs page I added

{{ItemDropsLine|Monster=Nature impling|Combat=N/A|Quantity=1|Rarity=Common}} and then |} after it ended. Are you editing in source mode or visual? Mage Hybrid talk 13:12, April 4, 2015 (UTC)


I didn't know there were options, I just click 'edit' in the top of the screen, but I'd love to just fill in codes! That would be so much faster. I'm planning on adding alot of stuff to the wiki, in the same catagory as this. At every item I want to put this table in and show where you can get it. Found it!

Switching to the old, brown, osrs theme. Edit

Hey, for some reason I'm now seeing every page in the "modern" runescape theme, which includes a hi-res RS3 background and (for some godforsaken reason) links which "blossom" into hard-to-read rainbows when you hover over them. Can I change this back to the old theme with a nice brown background and no stupid HTML games?

Request: Fixing Basilisk drop table Edit

Request: Fixing Basilisk drop table.

I tried my hand at editing a wikipedia page for Basilisks and I screwed the formatting up. I have no idea how to fix it and I need help to undo it. Here is the problem, specifically with the weapons drop.
