As I have told you before, you can not mention anything related to this in a public place. Your situation is completely normal because the verification happens beforehand, but I cannot go into anymore detail unless you talk to me in-game or e-mail me (in-game is preferable).

User:Rswfan/Topiclocked Simplified RswfanBot Edit

Sorry about the delay in replying, but I haven't been on my development machine for the last few days (only on my laptop).

One of the main reasons for the logging is to detect if updates are not done in the event of something unexpected. For example, the header of the sandbox might be changed and the change is intended to be permanent. The AmauriceBot therefore does pattern matching to only change if considered safe to do so, otherwise logs it.

However, if you do want a simpler approach, then you could simply attempt to replace the whole sandbox page regardless. This could be done using just the modified Utils and WikiSession classes you have, as well as the following Main class (no seperate SandboxCleaner class).

package rswfanbot;


public class Main
    public static void main(String[] args)
            throws IOException
        if (args.length < 2)
            System.err.println("  java -jar RswfanBot.jar wikiuser passwd");

        String wikiUser = args[0];
        String wikiPass = args[1];

        WikiSession wiki = new WikiSession();
        wiki.login(wikiUser, wikiPass);

        String sandboxPage = "RuneScape News:Sandbox";
        String newText = "{{sandbox}}\n"
                + "<!--COMMENT  Please do not make any changes above this line.\n"
                + "             Feel free to make any changes below.\n"
                + "             This is the sandbox where you can play and try out wiki editing safely. -->";
        String editComment = "Cleaning Sandbox";

        String oldText = wiki.getText(sandboxPage);
        if (oldText == null)
            System.err.println("Could not read old text from " + sandboxPage);

        if (!oldText.equals(newText))
            if (!wiki.editText(sandboxPage, newText, editComment))
                System.err.println("Failed to clean " + sandboxPage);


Errors are written directly to the standard error output (usually the console window unless redirected).

I hope that helps. Amaurice talk 13:58, December 30, 2009 (UTC)

You will still need to compile it the Java SE SDK that can be downloaded from I actually use the NetBeans development environment that comes as an optional download with the Java SDK as it's easier, but you can just use the "javac" that comes as a part of the Java SE SDK itself. I then have it run on a regular bases as a scheduled task on my Windows system. You might notice that unlike AmauriceBot, the above simplified version only takes two parameters, the bot user name and bot password for running (as the simplified bot only performs the one task).

User:Rswfan/Topiclocked Your addition to the RSWPN Edit

Hi, Rswfan
I noticed you tried to add something to the Wiki Post Newsletter. The newsletter is to alert people on matters pertaining to the RSWP and thus you cannot use it for personal messages. Some personal messages may be posted on the community quark board which will then may also be included in the newsletter. All additions must be approved by Chia, Jack, Me, or Scizor and have to be added in the form of a project page template. If you would like to add the notice to the Newsletter, please notify one of the previously mentioned users on their talk page (such as mine). Thank you, User:Stelercus/Signature 22:13, February 3, 2010 (UTC)

A [[User:Stelercus/holiday skins/Valentines Day|new skin]] has been created in lieu of Valentine's Day. Please contact Stelercus for any changes.

In Other News

In recent months, activity on the RSWP has gone down, therefore, The Golden Quill awards has been created to award the best content we have seen this past year. The awards will be given out in late April or early may, thus celebrating one year since the creation of the paper. The six best articles in the three categories will be put up for voting in a forum poll, and the top three in each as voted by you will be judged for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place; just to ensure that all is not said and done when the poll is closed. All nominations will have a star placed on their article as part of the reward, as well as bragging rights at the award ceremony hosted by Chia. Contact Stelercus for more information.

Well firstly, you should mark those images with {{jpeg}} so we know that it needs to be replaced. Secondly, Game Guide images are a lot different from inventory images so do not get the images from there.

The AmauriceBot source code has had the following changes made:

  2. GEChecker - modified to not update Template:Natprice, and to recognise new format for Exchange:Nature rune.

User:Rswfan/Topiclocked Minor updates to AmauriceBot Edit

FYI, in order to handle cases where the Wikia is under heavy load, the AmauriceBot has been changed to adapt more. The main changes are:

  • User:AmauriceBot/Source code/Utils
    1. Changed connection.setReadTimeout from 30 seconds to 120 seconds (to allow longer for slow Wikia).
    2. Increased delay between retries (in getInternetPage) to start at 6 seconds rather than 1 second.
    3. Added extra call to connection.setRequestProperty to set the "User-Agent" (in case Wikia requires in future).
    4. Added call to connection.getResponseCode and throw exception if not 200 (i.e. http failure status).
  • User:AmauriceBot/Source code/WikiSession
    1. Changed doCmd to parse and log any WikiAPI errors to stderr.
    2. Changed doCmd to retry if get maxlag error.
    3. Added "&maxlag=5" to editText (as per
    4. Changed editText to delay if doing an edit within 6 seconds of last edit (to keep below 10 edits a minute).

User:Rswfan/Topiclocked Code changes to AmauriceBot (including new "charms" task) Edit

Added getEmbeddedUsages and getHistory to WikiSession class. Changed pattern match for numbers in GEChecker class to not stack overflow if excessive number of digits (from a vandal).
