House Host Tracker Guide

Promoted by "Altar" Friends Chat & "07 Altar" Clan Chat

Introduction

 

We are proud to announce that we now have a House Host Tracker on Discord thanks to @Harudoku. It allows us to add and remove open hosts on the host list for both OSRS and RS3. This list is shown in a table format on our Portal page, Forums page, and on Discord. This will be very helpful for those training Prayer 33b3Z5d.png to a certain goal e.g. level 99, 120 or 200M XP.

 

Hosting locations:

  • OSRS - World 330, Rimmington or Yanille.
  • RS3 - World 31, Taverley or Yanille.

 

For the majority of players in the community, you will have access to the basic commands. They will allow you to let others know you're hosting and/or be aware of who's hosting. However, if you are an "Altar" FC rank, an "07 Altar" cc rank, or a house host tracker helper (HHTH) that is volunteering to help out with updating the tracker, many commands are available to you. We encourage you to make use of those commands on a regular basis to ensure the host list is up to date.

 

If you ever need help with a particular command, type !help <command name>, and the tracker will give you a description about the command. For example, if you are unsure what the verify command does, type !help verify.

 

For more immediate assistance with the House Host Tracker, you are more than welcome to join Discord.

1. Quick Start up for Hosts

 

Note: If you are an unverified host, the mods/admins will list you as an unverified host. Your hosting hours WILL NOT be tracked if that is the case.

 

For those who want to get started quickly with hosting as a verified host via the House Host Tracker, follow these steps:

  1. Type !verify
  2. Type your RuneScape display name.
  3. Type either OSRS or RS3.
  4. Type either Thieving or Construction. You should only use the stmveyy.png Construction method if your 0P0wvx3.png Thieving level is not on the hiscores.
  5. Type y to verify your hiscores XP in either stmveyy.png Construction or 0P0wvx3.png Thieving.
  6. Type y after following the instructions. This requires you to log into RS3 or OSRS to gain some XP in either skill.

 

Once you become verified for OSRS or RS3, you can type the !host command when you have started hosting and the !unhost command once you have stopped hosting. Your hosting hours will be added to your total time hosted once the !unhost command has been typed. 

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

2. House Host Tracker Advertisers

 

There are autotyping programs created by @Im Dakota and @Lusfr_ that automatically check the host list on the House Host Tracker every 30 seconds. They are usually found in each hosting location for OSRS and RS3 thanks to dedicated volunteers in our community. If there are none in a particular hosting location, feel free to tag them @OSRS HHT Advertiser or @RS3 HHT Advertiser on Discord. However, please bear in mind that these advertisers are offering free advertising services, so there is no guarantee that there will be one available for each hosting location at all times.

3. Command List Summary

 

Basic Commands

 

Here is a summary of all Basic commands that are available to everyone:

  • !help - brings up a list of all commands available to you.
  • !help <Command> e.g. !help adminhost - gives you helpful information about the command.
  • !verify - verifies you as a host with a high enough stmveyy.png Construction level to have a Gilded altar 6VYwK35.png. This requires searching your in-game name on the hiscores and verifying that you have the appropriate stmveyy.png Construction level to host. If that passes, you will be given two choices: 0P0wvx3.png Thieving or stmveyy.png Construction.  The purpose of this is to ensure that you are a member and that the name you chose belongs to an account that you are on. You should only use the stmveyy.png Construction method if your 0P0wvx3.png Thieving level is not on the hiscores.
  • !hosts - lists all OSRS and RS3 hosts.
  • !host e.g. !host rs3 tav - adds you on the tracker's open house host list. You must be verified to use this command.
  • !unhost - removes you from the tracker's open house host list. You must be verified to use this command.
  • !stats - checks your verified host status, activity score, time hosted, and whether you are a user/moderator/admin.
  • !leaderboard commands OR !leaderboard hosts - lists everyone based on command activity score or hosting hours.
  • !done - ends your current command so that you can type a different command.

 

Mod/Admin Commands

 

Here is a summary of all Mod/Admin commands that are only available to ranks and helpers:

  • [Mod/Admin] !namechange - changes your display name without verification.
  • [Mod/Admin] !allhosts - sends you a DM (Direct Message) that lists all verified RS3 and OSRS hosts.
  • [Mod/Admin] !osrsreset - cancels out the 3 hour notification that reminds ranks to check whether the OSRS hosts are up to date.
  • [Mod/Admin] !rs3reset - cancels out the 3 hour notification that reminds ranks to check whether the RS3 hosts are up to date.
  • [Mod/Admin] !cleanup - removes all verified hosts from the tracker that have left Discord.
  • [Mod/Admin] !host -a @Discord user - lists a verified host on the tracker. This will behave in the same way as !osrsreset or !rs3reset.
  • [Mod/Admin] !unhost -a @Discord user - removes a verified host from the tracker. This will behave in the same way as !osrsreset or !rs3reset.
  • [Mod/Admin] !proxyhost, !adminhost, !ahost, !ah "<Host RSN>" e.g. !ah "hello world" os 30 yan - lists an unverified host on the tracker. This will behave in the same way as !osrsreset or !rs3reset.
  • [Mod/Admin] !proxyunhost, !adminunhost, !aunhost, !auh "<Host RSN>" - removes an unverified host from the tracker. This will behave in the same way as !osrsreset or !rs3reset.

 

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

4. Mod/Admin Commands That Cancel the Hourly Notification

 

When RS3 hosts or OSRS hosts haven't been updated for an hour, the tracker will notify everyone to ensure that the host list for that respective game is up to date. It will send another notification per hour after that initial notification if it still has not been checked. The number of hours increment per notification, and they work in this manner:

  • If RS3 hosts haven't been updated for 4 hours or more, it will tag all Altar FC ranks.
  • If OSRS hosts haven't been updated for 3 hours or more, it will tag all 07 Altar CC ranks.

 

There are commands that cancel out that notification, such as:

  • !proxyhost, !adminhost, !ahost, !ah
  • !proxyunhost, !adminunhost, !aunhost, !auh
  • !host -a @Discord user
  • !unhost -a @Discord user
  • !osrsreset (this counts to your tracker activity score only if the tracker tags all 07 Altar CC ranks).
  • !rs3reset (this counts to your tracker activity score only if the tracker tags all Altar FC ranks).

 

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

5. Activity Score

 

We now have a statistics tracker for those that are updating the House Host Tracker regularly to provide some incentive. Each time you use a command, you get a point added to your activity score. However, the following commands DO NOT count towards your activity score:

  • !help
  • !hosts
  • !stats
  • !leaderboard
  • !verify
  • !host
  • !host -a @Discord user
  • !rs3reset (when Altar FC Ranks haven't been tagged by the tracker).
  • !osrsreset (when 07 Altar CC Ranks haven't been tagged by the tracker).
  • !allhosts
