The use of a spellchecker and proper grammar before leaving messages on this page is greatly appreciated.
New conversations that lack a header will be given one by me. You may not like my headers, however you will have lost the right to pick your own. This can be avoided by giving your conversation a header yourself. Headers should be short and succint; blathery ones may be shortened to something that doesn't take up several lines on the contents table.
If you must insist on doing First/Second/Third etc immediately upon my archiving this page, please do indicate whether you prefer Blake, Tennyson, Coleridge, Deacon or Poe.
DO NOT CONTACT ME IN GAME IN ANY WAY TO DISCUSS WIKI MATTERS!
Yes I noticed as much myself while out doing things in Runescape and reading on the wiki about greegrees. Now, could you tell me why you undid the edit, leave in the unsubstantiated claim and for that matter leave the claim in the previous and unrelated paragraph without punctuation?

I was actually on the fence about that one. There are three other locations on the wiki that use "incandescent energy" over "divine energy" (see: "augmentor" and "devices"), and the game uses incandescent energy as the default in the manufacturing window, so those were my two reasons.

Hey, I just modified the picture on the quick guide (http://runescape.wikia.com/wiki/Gower_Quest/Quick_guide), but couldn't get the sizing correct so I canceled my revision. You can find the puzzle solution on that page, a piece in the middle needs to be adjusted to finish the puzzle. The puzzle disapears instantly when you complete it, so it's impossible to get a picture. Chinchomps (talk) 21:01, June 20, 2016 (UTC)</span>
I kinda get the Oxford comma. In some rare situations it could be good but usually it's just ugly. AFAIK, Wikia leaves it open if it should be used or not, but it is good style to follow one discipline. I think not using it is widely more popular, even in Gower Quest article. I'm more disturbed by plain wrong use of comma before and, like in "I walked out, and went to the bar". On the other hand "I walked out, and it was raining" is correct. Both variants were seen in Gower Quest article. Also, using Oxford comma extensively is clearly spreading; I bet many average grammar people just see a comma before "and" and think that should always happen.

Yeah, thanks. I did bit of the same and noticed that there is a lot more to be done. Just couldn't be bothered right now. Thingummywut (talk) 08:17, June 21, 2016 (UTC)
Nope, I was editing something else and by the time I'd finished editing, someone had added a block of text. Miss Whipped (talk) 06:51, June 22, 2016 (UTC)
I understand wanting to keep the page looking as clean as possible. It was my first edit and all I was attempting to do was mimic what I see on the other hundreds of pages I've viewed since I started using the Rune Wiki years ago. After I'd added an image, I saw the chunk of text there, and appreciated that someone had added more information, and resumed my editing. Upon refreshing, I saw that the "block of text" was split up, and again, I appreciated the fact that someone (I say "someone" because at that point, I didn't know it was you) had make the page look even better than before.
What I do NOT appreciate, however, is the condescending comment that you had left on my page. There is a professional and polite way to address the issue, such as "I'm not sure if this was a mistake, but did you intend to change the text on (such and such) page?" Instead, you chose a different approach to addressing the issue and commented something that seemed to insult my intelligence: did you remove the paragraphs? A wall of text is not attractive, nor is it particularly readable.
Like I stated in my first comment to you, I did not edit the text whatsoever. If I started working on the page before the text was broken up, and saved it a few minutes after you broke up the text, it's likely that the page saved what was already on my screen (unbroken text) and essentially attempted to write over the changes you made. I have a suspicion that this is exactly what happened, as the page gave me a warning that someone edited the page already, and the page reflected the symptoms I just described.
When trying to explain this to you the first time, I didn't give nearly as much detail as I am here - likely because I was still in the middle of learning something new while working on the page. But, coming back to my Talk page after spending time creating a signature - again, this is all new to me - you'd left another comment: I fleshed the page out so it wasn't a barely populated stub. And it wasn't a "block of text" when I hit save on it.
My goal is to not be mean or nasty on your Talk wall, it is to advise that we refrain from making assumptions until we know exactly what happened and be willing to accept that people are going to make mistakes. I'll admit, I have some work to do in both of those areas myself.
I'll leave you with this: There are people out there willing to learn how to make edits to these pages and learn the appropriate formats/templates. I'm actually one of those people who is excited to do just that, and if I receive appropriate feedback and criticism, I will continue to improve my contributions.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. I look forward to working with you and the many other fabulous editors I see making these Wiki pages warm and welcome.
By the way, your signature was inspiration for me taking the time to learn how to make my own. So thank you for that. Miss Whipped 09:06, June 22, 2016 (UTC)
I edited the text, the black was bothering me also (I left the quotes in black, however). You're welcome to indent. Let me know how you do that so that I can be sure to do it in the future. Thanks!Miss Whipped 18:19, June 22, 2016 (UTC)
Found out how to indent, buahahaha! >:) Miss Whipped 19:02, June 22, 2016 (UTC)
Yep there were tons of pamphlets and posters put up to leave around here. Also I think today might be an omen for me as I got a web developer internship interview at 3 o'clock today. – Ozank Cx08:49, June 24, 2016 (UTC)
link 1.) I removed a completely useless heading that contained an equally useless and empty sub-heading. Store locations, Crafting battlestaffs, and Dropping monsters are clearly ways to obtain battlestaffs, and weren't sub-sections of either of the above headings. Additionally, I don't know of other items that use such headings/sub-headings that you re-implemented, which are once again empty.
2.) I changed the vague icon to denote experience was earned with the more descriptive Crafting icon. I've never seen the former used for such purposes, but the latter is used all the time. Additionally, that table and section as a whole can be improved upon, but it's not worth trying if such a small change gets reverted.
If you have a reply, please leave it here. 188.8.131.52 21:00, July 2, 2016 (UTC)
Thanks! Trust me, there are many mistakes. Some parts make zero sense like this but I can't figure out what they really sing. I'll be adding my lyrics to rest of the Arc songs soon too. Thingummywut (talk) 09:50, July 28, 2016 (UTC)
I used a semicolon here because "Doing so does not consume the wushroom" does not stand by itself as a simple sentence—Doing (what) so? I used the semicolon in place of a comma-formed conjunction as I felt it allowed the sentence a smoother reading flow. Your edit is fine, I felt I would just explain to you why I chose to do what I did, because you asked. — Heaven Sent (talk) 00:03, August 8, 2016 (UTC)
Most pages I've edited in the past which do use semicolon conjunctions have been edited to become capital, or have been capitalized while I edit articles. Since noticing them being edited, it's just became how I use them here on the wiki. I've looked over the style guides and found no mention either way, but I would prefer to use the non-capitalized style myself. I've just never found the issue pressing enough to enter an edit war over, so I've left the edits be. — Heaven Sent (talk) 00:13, August 8, 2016 (UTC)
Hey, I noticed you made some of these yesterday using a script. Could you explain to me how to make them that way (if it's even possible for me to do that). It looks really useful and I'd like to learn how to do it. Thanks, IsobelJ 08:58, August 9, 2016 (UTC)
I see thank you :) IsobelJ 11:10, August 9, 2016 (UTC)
I submitted an edit to the [] some years ago that included a sample of 4000 rocks mined with glory/ring of wealth. I'm wondering if as a moderator you have access to edit history that hasn't made the final cut of that page. It was removed by someone at the time- I don't recall the reason; I think it was because there weren't significant enough differences between the sample size of 1000 and my sample size of 4000. I was hoping to get that document or table back if possible as I no longer have a record of it.
tl;dr - i submitted a table with a sample size of 4000 and would love to have it if possible.
Some of your recent interactions with other users have been in breach of RS:UTP. Specifically your tone in youreditsummaries and this message. Aside from this I can see that since you've been editing the wiki again you have been making an effort to be civil with other editors, so please keep that up and avoid acting like this again in future. IsobelJ 14:26, August 22, 2016 (UTC)
I told you it was still blue-linked because a few minutes had passed after your mass-move, and you had the most recent responsibility of tending to that glitch (I assumed there was something you could do). What's sysop, lol umad? Y so salty doe. Your actions on my talk page have been pointless. Paul ZTalkbite meHS 21:18, August 23, 2016 (UTC)
