Unusual Runescape tips from Runewise

I've been trying to encourage Runescape fan sites to share their content with each other via lightweight service (similarly to the way Jagex is letting fan sites to access highscores), but without success. Apparently there is a huge "trust" issue despite Jagex's efforts to bring the community together. My offer for other fan sites to tap into tips accumulated at Runewise wasn't taken. It's actually quite sad, though not completely unexpected.

Anyway, I wonder maybe there is a place in Runescape blogs where such services could be used? I don't want to push anyone, but if there are people willing to experiment with this, I'd be awesome.

Here is an example based on "unusual tips" service from Runewise. If you embed this code somewhere in your blog template/section:



you'll see something like this, and the tip will be different every time the page is displayed.



Is it worth pursuing or am I day dreaming?

I think it's an interesting idea, maybe with the tips you can get them to display random info based off of the character you input, so it's like different advice whenever you see it. Also maybe show things like the titles and other tidbits just for fun :D.

@Seth That's pretty much what all of runewise.net is

Added it to my site Vaskor.

TBH I didn't know this existed til now.

I'll probably mess around with it more tomorrow. Let me know what you think.

Iframes are evil :(

Vaskor said...

Seth, yes, something like that should be possible, if there is enough interest.

Jax, thank you! I suggest you reduce width of the tip area on your page. Instead of width="250" set something like width="200", so it would fit.

Ambo, "evil" is a broad word. IFrames is not the best concept in the world, but what other choice to do this kind of things do we have? JavaScript, but it'd be much more complex.

Using a combination of a dueling ring (Castle Wars tele) and a baloon to Entrana you can runecraft law runes very fast. Maybe even faster than via Abyss!

I've been crafting laws like that for ages :D

I can work on something Javascript ;)

Sorry, I tried, but it's in HTML not bbcode, as Sal's site is. :(

Vaskor said...

Ambo100, if you could create a widget like that, it'd be great!

NeobotXP, F5? You lost me...

Merch Gwyar, ouch, I didn't think about it. I am not sure there is a solution apart from generating images. But thank you for trying!

I've completed the script but It won't allow me to post it here :/

Do you have a profile on Sal's realm?

Vaskor said...

Ambo100, great! Yes, my name at Sal's is vrunewise. Or you could simply email it to vaskor_runewise@yahoo.com

Thank you!
