This article is about the interface feature. For other uses, see Notes (disambiguation).
The Notes feature was released with the Mobilising Armies update of 8 July 2009. It is a part of the interface that allows players to add up to 30 notes in plain text, with a maximum of 50 characters each, for a total of 1500 characters. Players can add a note by pressing the button at the top-left of the interface, which is marked with a green 'plus' (+) symbol, and then typing on the keyboard.
Players can customize an individual note by right-clicking it. This allows them to change the colour of the note's text to any of four different colours (red, green, amber and white), with white being the default. They can also edit the text of any note, using the Caret to select certain parts of the note to go back to.
Players can delete any note by selecting it and then pressing the "Delete" bar, or delete all notes by right-clicking the Delete bar and selecting "Delete all".
The Notes feature is useful for keeping track of prices or writing down lists of things to buy. It could also be used in quests that require you to remember a word or phrase.
Players who are under 13 years old cannot use this feature. This feature can also be used on Quick Chat worlds.
Typing any key or specific phrases will result in the note changing to a popular cultural reference or meme.
|All your base are belong to us||orly?||"All your base are belong to us" is a famous line from the video game Zero Wing which was ineptly translated by the European Sega department. "Orly", meaning "oh really?", is an internet meme which began with a famous image of a Snowy Owl looking skeptical and disbelieving, captioned with the phrase "O RLY?".|
|orly||yarly||"Yarly", meaning "yeah really", is often used as a reply to "orly".|
|Murder||All rest and no play makes Guthix a dull boy.||This is a reference to the book, The Shining, in which the main character goes insane and types "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy." over and over. "Redrum" (murder spelled backwards) refer to the main character's son who repeats this word throughout the course of the book.|
|Andrew||Cabbage.||In RuneScape Classic, censored words were replaced with "Cabbage" instead of stars. It is also a running joke in RuneScape, featuring prominently in the 2007 and 2009 April Fools events.|
|Paul||Rargh, I'm a lava monster!||This is possibly an inside joke in Jagex Studios. It's a possibility that Paul REALLY likes lava monsters, or it could just be meant to be funny in a sense that it's completely irrelevant.|
|I am your father||Nooooooooooooooooooooooooo!||In the movie Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, the main villain Darth Vader tells Luke Skywalker that he is his father, causing Luke to shout "Nooo!"|
|I'll be back||Come with me if you want to live.||The lines are from the movie "The Terminator". The first is said by the terminator himself and the second is said by Kyle Reese to Sarah Connor.|
|Finish the fight||They must love the smell of hero.||These lines reference the video game Halo 3.|
|There is no spoon||Then you will see, it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself.||This is a reference to the movie The Matrix in which a child explains to the protagonist how he is able to bend spoons with his mind.|
|You fight like a dairy farmer||How appropriate. You fight like a cow.||A reference to the video game The Secret of Monkey Island, where one-liners like this are the fighting method.|
|Bangin'||donk||This may be a reference to the film Crocodile Dundee in which an antagonist goes to attack a friend of Mick Dundee, which results in the line "I don't need a gun, I have a donk" which then results in the antagonist being hit on the head with a donk like noise.
"Bangin' donk" may also refer to the popular song on youtube, entitled "Put a donk on it" which is sung by the Blackout Crew. It may come from the quote "You know what you gotta do right? Put a bangin' donk on it!".
|Humperdinck||Have fun storming the castle!||These lines are from the film The Princess Bride.|
|Milton Waddams||The ratio of people to cake is too big.||This is a reference to Office Space.|
|R.I.P. Runescape||Wanna bet?||This is because many players speculate about the death of Runescape.|
|Penso, logo existo||Borboletas salpicadas de goiabada...||The first line is Portuguese and translates to "I think, therefore I am". This is a famous quote from the French philosopher, René Descartes, regarding the question of existence. The second line, also Portuguese, translates to "Sprinkled butterflies of guava jelly...".|
|Le temps passe||L'œuf dur.||Both lines are in French, the first translates to "Time flies" and the second translates to "The hard-boiled egg."|
|Sevga||Marmaros had a close encounter with a prayer-eating behemoth.||Sevga was the name of the player that sent a letter to Plane-freezer Lakhrahnaz in the Postbag 44. The Chaos Elemental answered with a new set of hints.|
Mod Hope has tentatively confirmed there are more to be found.
In the guide section of the RuneScape website Controls - Notes there was an example note pictured that states "Finish reading the Oxford English Dictionary -S.". This could be a reference to the movie Evan Almighty in which God leaves notes for protagonist Evan Baxter, signed with "G". The note could have been signed by the RuneScape God Saradomin, encouraging players to spell better. The pictured note has been removed from the Game Guide.
- There used to be a bug where you could get images before your text when you edit it by typing in this format: "<img=0> text". Changing the number would change the image, the usable images were: , , and . Anything above <img=3> results in an empty space. This bug was fixed with an update on 28 April 2010.
- There is a glitch when you are following someone, while pressing the "add note" button, you stop following and walk on the spot instead. You are still facing the one you are following. The "walk on the spot" part of this glitch has been fixed.
- When the game state is rolled back as a part of a bug fix (as happened on 14 April 2010), notes that were added in the period that was rolled back are not deleted. For example during the time to be rollback, a player could have finished a slayer task, got a new one, and made a note about it. After the rollback, the note still exists for the new task, even though the player is now back on the previous task. This retention of notes, however, is possibly not a glitch, since the player could have made a note that would be unaffected by the rollback.
