Countdown Error Edit

You will need it on the hiscores on Friday, or tell me on Friday. --Nalyd Renrut 21:01, 26 December 2008 (UTC)

Sam, you have set a record for most skill changes in one season. Unfortunately, I'm afraid it's too late. You must stay with fishing, although I hope you will do prayer next season. ;) To do the signature do this:

Dang! I've got test's all month during january, and although most of them I could easily pass without revising (i should still revise, even though i dont :p) I'm heavily pressurized at the fact that I could skip several years of tests, and already would be set to do that, if it weren;t for the fact that i suck at Religious Education, I average about 12% in the R.E tests, compared to 87% on a bad day and 93-100% on a medium-good day.sorry, but 11.30 is mayby 4-5hours too late, and I can't change that unless I get given the test early, even then it'd be mayby 3 hours too late for general revision.--SmithingZilenserztalk!

Re: Making New Pages Edit

To create your own user sub-pages, you just need to link to them, for example:

[[User:SamRosenfeld/My House]]

To give the link a nicer name, you can use the | seperator, for example:

[[User:SamRosenfeld/My House|My House]]

Just add the link to your user page and then click on the link to edit the sub-page.

Hope that helps. Amaurice talk 20:32, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Here are a few pages to you might find useful:

As for other example user pages, there are quite a few good ones for ideas. Some examples I can think of off-hand are:

The pictures of my character were done using "High Detail", but not in full screen mode. I believe non-members can also use "High Detail" (but just can't use Full Screen mode). I then just captured the picture using Alt + Print Scrn, then pasted from the clipboard into an image editor (I personally use Paint.NET because it makes editing and setting transparency much easier).

The archiving of the talk page is a manual step, but there are templates that make it easier to provide links back to the main talk page, etc. I tend to find archiving is good when tbere are about 30 or so postings on the talk page because it then starts becoming a bit slow to load.

Some people just provide simple links from their talk page to their archived pages. I've created an additional personal "template" in User:Amaurice/ArchiveList, which is my archive index. I then include this index on my talk page just as if it was a template, i.e. by entering:

{{User talk:Amaurice/ArchiveList}}

When I create a new archive, I update my template to link to the new archive. I then copy the header from one of my existing archive pages (saves a bit of typing). I then copy over the content I am archiving (edit the talk page and copy the content to an edit of the archive page). Finally, I then edit the original talk page to remove the discussions I've archived.

If you do a lot of work with tables, I find the mw:Help:Table MediaWiki article useful.

Hope that helps. Let me know if there is anything you don't understand. Amaurice talk 13:27, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

I forgot to mention, in addition to userboxes, you might find other user templates useful too. Amaurice talk 13:43, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Sandbox Edit

You can create your own sandbox just by creating a link on your home page (just like you did with the house). It does not matter what you call it, for example, you could make it User:SamRosenfeld/Sandbox.

If you start using user boxes on your user page, you could even use:


This will give a userbox with a link to a sub-page called User:SamRosenfeld/Sandbox.

I hope that helps. Smiley Amaurice talk 10:40, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

I just looked at your user page and noticed that you had tried using the Sandbox template, but noticed that you had not given the sandbox a name, so I have updated it for you.
Also, thanks for updating the time on Runescape:Wikifest/Winter 2008 page. I've updated the Template:Wikifest notice (which is the countdown banner) too. Since no one else has yet done it, I've fill in my guess of the schedule. Feel free to update/correct. Amaurice talk 13:36, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

The wiki will automatically put external images in as an image rather than a link only if it knows it is an image link. It seems that the wikia will only assume it is a valid image link if:

  1. It comes from a known image site (e.g. imageshack or photobucket)
  2. It is of a recognised standard web image format (e.g. png, jpg, gif, etc)

I don't know if the problem with your image link is because the site ( is not in the recognised list or whether the bmp format is not accepted as a standard web image format (possibly because bmp files only work on Windows).

You could try saving he image as a standard web image format (I tend to use the png format) and see if that works first. If not, then you might have to create an account on photobucket or imageshack instead (they are free).

Hope that helps. Amaurice talk 09:55, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

The easiest option for controlling the layout of a page is using tables. How to use tables is explained in more detail in table help page. When working with tables, I sometimes find it easier to use the border="1" (as shown in the help page) so I can see where the cell edges are, then when happy with he layout, remove the border="1" (to remove the extra borders).

Re: Cambridge Edit

Yes, I do have a high IQ, particularly in the numerical side. My weakness is language. Cambridge and Oxford are the two best universities in the UK, so they aren't easy to get into. I went to St John's College, Cambridge from 1980 to 1983 (quite a few years back now) studying Mathematics.

I don't remember seeing many American's there, but I do remember quite a few Asians. My guess is a lot of aspiring Americans probably go to Harvard or Yale, which are currently ranked above Cambridge on the International University Rankings. Amaurice talk 11:15, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

Re: Your Friend Edit

Well, I told him that, but he just won't accept no for an answer, it seems, so I guess that didn't work. Thanks for the help though! By the way, do you have any idea what happened to the thread? I know it may have sounded a little bit inappropriate, sure, but my friend was in a bit of trouble, and I started here to find a answer.........Pkthis 20:02, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

Countdown Edit

No problem on the delay. I was trying more to get other people interested than anything else. I agree more people will be better. Will be ready on the 27th. Strength-icon Hammer2092 Time |KOTA Bandos godsword 20:27, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

hey Edit

ok, first of all, I want you to make sure that you sign your message with a link to your userpage every time. I ended up having to look up "Hebrewsian users" to find your page. Who came up with Hebrewsian users anyway?

Ya, I speak Hebrew. I'm not orthodox or israeli though. I live in Texas and I'm learning advanced Hebrew with my instructor. I went to Israel last summer though, and I took two ulpanim while I was there, and I learned A LOT of Hebrew lol.

Countdown Again Edit

Looks like Aburnett001 is out. Just a guess, his user page states he is quitting the Wikia forever due to grades. I would bet Doucher4000 would like to take his place for fishing. I will drop D4K a notes as well. Strength-icon Hammer2092 Time |KOTA Bandos godsword 15:23, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

Countdown 5/1 UpdateEdit

Hope you don't mind I added the numbers for everyone this week. I didn't do any color changes just recorded the numbers. Hope you aren't offended. I just wanted to make sure I survived one more week. Strength-icon Hammer2092 Time |KOTA Bandos godsword 03:34, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

Countdown to 99. Edit


I've been very interested in your Countdown to 99, but i don't really understand how it works :s
Could you give me an explanation? I'd love to 'join' the next round! :D

FredeTalk 16:05, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

Okay ... And the next round starts May 29th? Or ...? And is there any specific place to sign up?~Thanks. FredeTalk 06:06, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

Quitting RuneScapeEdit

I see you are thinking of quitting RuneScape in favour of World of Warcraft. Firstly, I want to say I'm sorry to hear you are going, you have been a great contributor to this Wiki. Secondly, I can happily take over the next Countdown to 99 (after the one that starts soon), if you want me to.

CDT99 Edit

Has the new season started? 22:27, 12 June 2009 (UTC)
Jediadam4 must be removed or something. He's signed up for Hitpoints, and his level is 94. On the page you said people only may have level 91 or less 06:34, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

Re: countdown to 99 Edit

What purpose does that rule serve? I can't think of any practical use of it. It also limits the number of people who may sign up, as there's only 23 (give or take a few, I'm too lazy to count) differnet skills. --— Enigma 08:20, 27 July 2009 (UTC)


Hey,are you sure we can't have 2 players doing the same skill?

I wanted to do Firemaking,because I need to train it,but Frede did that,then I wanted to do Woodcutting,but someone else was doing that...Do you think its possible for me to train Firemaking? I don't see why we can't have more than one person dong one skill....--

Is it too late to sign up for the countdown to 99? Edit

My guess is yes, it is too late, but... I was going to try for cooking. If it is not too late, then could I sign up, with the RuneScape username D-ark-Ang-el?

I am only a few hours late for signup, I believe. That should only end up causing a slight DISadvantage to me (less time to level, more levels already gained), which I am willing to accept. Could I please get into the countdown? Thanks, I'm a regular user and I approve this message.  TLUL]] Talk - Contribs 03:47, January 15, 2010 (UTC), edited 03:55, January 15, 2010 (UTC) 

Background color fix Edit

I updated the table to set the background color in two ways: the bgcolor attribute as before, and the style attribute. This is because the bgcolor attribute has no effect due to my custom css.
