One Small Wiki Favour is a project to improve the RuneScape Wiki, where wiki users can contribute to a number of ongoing wiki tasks and qualify for receiving in-game rewards, including bonds. Anyone is welcome to participate, whether you're completely new to the wiki or you've been here for a while. If you have not edited before, then this is a great time to get involved!

To participate in this project and GET A BOND, take a look at the tasks below and find one that looks exciting -- completing any one of them will earn you a share of a bond. Each task has some advice on how to effectively tackle it, but we strongly recommend joining the #one-small-wiki-favour channel in our Discord to coordinate with other editors, discuss the project, and claim your rewards. If you do not wish to create a discord account you can claim rewards and get help via the talk (discussion) page or by contacting the coordinator via their talk page. Note that bonds are not awarded automatically so please contact the coordinator and allow time to check the task. You will then need to meet any of the project helpers in game to be awarded your reward.

Tasks and rewards[edit source]

Current tasks active until

11 November

If you have worked on a goal and want to be considered for a bond, please let us know in the OSWF discord channel. One of the project helpers will check your contributions and may award you a bond if you have completed the task. If you have done work on a goal but not managed to complete it fully before the reset time then you may still be rewarded some coins for your work.

NPC Spawns - Task active

Add npc spawn maps to 200 pages

The interactive map project is available on the wiki and we are looking to add the maps for npc spawns to the corresponding pages. The spawn information is recorded on the wiki and the maps can be added to the pages by anyone (does not require any image work).

The spawn locations (preformatted in single templates) are listed on this google doc. These templates need to be added to the corresponding npc pages and combined for spawns that are in the same area.


Non-attackable npcs
Template: {{NPC map}}
Multiple spawns can be combined on one template as unsigned arguments of the format |param:value,param2:value...|, these paremeters should be npcid, x, and y . Resulting in something like:

{{NPC map|npcname=Pale wisp
|npcid:18150,x:3120,y:3209|npcid:18150,x:3112,y:3226|npcid:18150,x:3120,y:3209
|npcid:18150,x:3128,y:3220|npcid:18150,x:3121,y:3212|npcid:18150,x:3112,y:3219
|npcid:18150,x:3116,y:3220|npcid:18150,x:3111,y:3229|npcid:18150,x:3110,y:3230
|npcid:18150,x:3121,y:3212|npcid:18150,x:3118,y:3212|npcid:18150,x:3106,y:3227
|npcid:18150,x:3114,y:3223}}

Maps should only be added to infoboxes (using the |intmap= infobox param) for npcs if they are not attack-able, the infobox is not switched, and only 1 map is needed.

Attackable npcs
Template: {{LocTableHead}}{{LocLine}}{{LocTableBottom}}
Multiple spawn locations can be combined in the table by adding seperate LocLine templates for each location. If a locations section does not already exist, it should be the first section on the page as ==Locations==.

{{LocTableHead}}
{{LocLine
|loc=[[Brimhaven Dungeon]]
|lvls=82
|mem=yes
|mapID=589
|npcid:4698,x:2630,y:9482|npcid:83,x:2631,y:9505|npcid:4700,x:2633,y:9491
|npcid:4700,x:2635,y:9477|npcid:4698,x:2638,y:9501|npcid:4699,x:2642,y:9506
|npcid:4701,x:2646,y:9476}}
{{LocTableBottom}}

If the coordinates given do not produce a correct map (eg it's just black), try running them through the expected vs actual coordinates calculator. This occurs because some sections of the map are not in the same place as in game.

Please mark the row off on the spreadsheet when complete by putting your wiki name in the Wiki name columnn

Update history - Task active

Add the patch notes from 4 different updates to relevant pages

One of our newest (and most ambitious) projects is to document information about how game updates have affected content over time. A group of editors is currently working through old patch notes and copying them on to pages of content that was affected by each patch.

This information is organised chronologically in a new section called "Update history" which is being added to pages. You can help by doing this for the patch notes listed below. There is a project page which explains how to add in a new patch note here as well as a dedicated #update-history channel on our Discord.

Here's some that we are prioritising from 2016:

You can find more on User:Tombomb/Update History. Please mark them off on both pages when you're done!

Image transparency - Task active

Add transparency or translucency to 30 images.

In order to have the highest quality images possible on the wiki many of them need to have the background removed and we need your help.
It is strongly recommended to NOT use the magic wand tool as it will result in a poor transparency.

We pride ourselves on having excellent quality images on the wiki. One of the things we do to achieve that is to remove distracting backgrounds from images, which we call adding transparency (or translucency for images that have particles or bloom effects). There are always plenty of images which require transparency or translucency to be added to them - they can be found in Category:Images needing transparency and Category:Images needing translucency. Transparency can be quite tricky to do at first, but we have a step-by-step guide on how to add it here. If you are not familiar with adding transparency to images, we recommend that you get feedback from other editors on your first attempts. It can take a few tries to edit transparency well. Please keep in mind that transparency must be done to a certain standard in order to qualify for this project. Some info on translucency can be found here.

Rules[edit source]

  • You must have a wiki account and cannot be blocked. Anonymous edits will not count. You can sign up for a wiki account at Special:CreateAccount.
  • The reward for completion of each task will be one bond. If multiple editors contribute to a finite goal then the prize may be split between them.
  • You may also be awarded coins if you work on a goal but do not do the full amount of work required to earn a bond. The amount of coins will be equal to the percentage of the task being completed. You must do at least 25% of the total task to claim a reward.
  • If you are awarded a bond or a share of a bond, you can get in contact with one of the project runners on Discord and claim it in game. Bonds are generally awarded as coins by the coordinators. If you would specifically like a bond please let the coordinator know (note that bonds are traded to you and as such become untradeable).
  • You can claim two bonds over each two week period that tasks are active.
