Ways You Can Help Sal's Realm!

Recommended Posts

There always seems to be something to do on the site in order to make it the best it can possibly be. It's no easy task, and the more people that can help with it, the better. There are TONS of things you the forumer can do to help the site out, literally! I know that not everyone likes writing guides, and that's ok. But there are all sorts of things you can do to help us out, and you'll receive credit for it (as always). So I decided to make a list of things that YOU can do to help the website out in your spare time, which should hopefully give those of you who want to help but aren't sure what you can do an idea of what needs to be done. :D

 

1. The Item Database

 

First and foremost, the item database needs more items sent in! There are more than 4,000 items in RuneScape, and we have just over 1,100 right now. EVERYONE is more than welcome to post new items that aren't in there already; simply run a quick search in the database to make sure your item isn't in there, and record the requested info about it. If each of the active members here sent in an item each week, we would have all of the items added in no time! ALL items need to be added too - from quest items to weapons, to items that have no real use in the game. Keeping the database updated is just as important as submitting things too. If you see some out of date or missing info, please post it in the DB corrections board!

 

The same goes for the Monster and NPC databases -- we need more submitters!

 

2. Maps Need Fixing

 

A TON of maps on the site are either outdated, or contain colors like red and green which are difficult for colorblind people to use. Many guides also refer to these colors on the maps. The largest offenders are the city guides. Any maps such as these should be redone using easy to read numbers (big enough to easily see, and in white). Of course, the guides need to be reworked a bit (the subsections should be numbered, and references to colors should be removed). These should be posted in the Corrections forum.

 

3. Treasure Trails Guide

 

The Treasure Trails Guide is an ongoing project to collect all of the clues and answers for our upcoming TT database-guide (yes, a database that's also a guide!). The more people who submit, the sooner we can get this thing added to the site!

 

4. Reporting "Broken" Guides

 

I admit, *some* guides on the site (particularly in the quest guide section) are very old and inaccurate because of past updates in the game. If you come across a guide that is very inaccurate, hard to follow, or misses important info in numerous places, please make sure you post it in the Guide Rewrite Request topic. This gives other members who enjoy writing guides the opportunity to rewrite it and prevent the same issue from happening to other players.

 

And if you would like to rewrite a guide, check out that topic as well -- there's a list of guides (which will be updated shortly) that need to be rewritten, and ideas for guides that need to be rewritten are being tossed around in there too.

 

5. Reporting Incorrect Info

 

In some guides (like skill guides), the general idea is accurate, but certain bits and pieces are missing or inaccurate (like the tabled information). These guides don't need to be totally rewritten, but the info should be updated. All updated info should be posted in the Corrections board. This goes for things like calculators too! For a list of certain corrections/additions that need to be made, check out the Requested Corrections topic.

Hopefully this helps give an idea of some of the things that you can help with to make the site better. And if you have any suggestions to add to the list, feel free to post! :P

I added a guide to the Website submissions section, and reported one error with your website. (No Cold War Difficulty)

Thing is, it's generally very accurate.

Thanks all guide writers, past, present and future.

Also the quest reward scrolls. We're almost done, just 18 remaining. :P

 

If each of the active members here sent in an item each week, we would have all of the items added in no time!
Assuming there are 750 active members (that play RS), it would take a month to get them done. :D

Probably more than that! I always hesistate because I submitted once, after looking at the 'already done' bits in the NPC database, thinking it was the 'To be done' :D

I posted, and basically got flamed to death :P

Might try again sometime.

Thanks, I forgot to add those to the list (and I was planning on adding those, too). :/

If someone flames you, report their post and we'll take care of it. :P

Why aren't the monster and NPC databases uploaded to the site and we can keep updating them. If people actually see the database on the site, search from something and don't find it, they will probably post it themselves or tell some one who will for them. Just a thought though....

Not enough information lies within them at current time, add 500 more to both and we have a deal.

I don't know if its possible, but i think in the search the site section of the site should have an option to not search forums because whenever i search something, the forums overwhelm what I want to seach on the site.

Just to let you know, since it hasn't been updated, the trade limit increased a few months ago, it isn't 3k at the minimum, but around 5k to start, then goes up... I think. That's just what I remember running across a few months ago on the news and updates thing on RuneScape.

Then post a correction.
