The Road to Prif (24/02/2018)

It’s DXP weekend again and again I haven’t prepared for it, even less than the last time! It’s Saturday evening so only got a day and a half left and to be honest I’ve had a pretty relaxed weekend where I’ve actually enjoyed the playing the game.

Started off by doing some fishing on Friday and got 1 level. Then a friend of mine started using their protein gear so I decided to use mine too. Alongside portables, I got several crafting levels which took me to my goal of 75 and I used the bars to get me to 74 smithing, got to 75 with some steel bars I had in my bank. Used some planks to get a couple of levels in construction and some energy to get me a couple of levels in divination.

I also did a dungeon for the first time in a long long time with Ross, Cassy and Draga which got me to 50 dungeoneering and today I did my first two sinkholes (I’d never actually heard of them) my friend Bratty told me how to complete them. I actually got a nice amount of dungeoneering experience form a large lamp which took me to level 51.


As it stands here are are the requirements, green = complete, orange = in progress, red = haven’t started. Simple.

– Making History

    – The Restless Ghost

    – Priest in Peril

– Catapult Construction

    – Regicide

– Within the Light

    – Mourning’s Ends Part II

        – Mourning’s Ends Part I

– Big Chompy Bird Hunting

            – Sheep Herder

            – Roving Elves

                – Waterfall Quest

                – Regicide

                    – Underground Pass

                        – Biohazard

                            – Plague City

58/75 Construction

51/75 Dungeoneering

55/75 Agility

75 Crafting

75 Herblore

63/75 Mining

75 Prayer

75 Summoning

50 Thieving

70 Fletching

75 Woodcutting

30 Cooking

40 Smithing

I spent some time at Barbarian Outpost agility course with Bratty too before moving to Brimhaven and getting roughly 45 tickets and completing some sort of task, not sure what it was which required 30 tickets in a row.

Right now I’m mining iron and mithril in falador mines, going to keep going as high a level as I can but I really hate the skill so not sure I’ll stick it out to 75. One thing that’s made it easier is Bratty has shown me where a deposit box is! I’ve actually mined here loads and never realised it was there. (Mixing things up a bit and uploading a gif above! I’m still getting used to the software, not too sure why it made me drag twice so you can see a little box at the beginning).

At the end of my last blog post I was chopping Mahogany logs in Karamja with the aim of making planks to level up construction to 75. Once I finish mining I’m going to move back to the logs I got from Karamja, make them into planks and keep going with my goal of 75 construction.


r/Championship subreddit design

Hello, thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read my first web design related blog post.

I am a reddit addict in some ways, I don’t browse a huge variety anymore but I spend a good amount of time on it daily.

One of the subreddits I moderate is r/Championship and I’ve done so for about a year since Newcastle United got relegated from the Premier League. In this post I’m going to go through some changes I’ve made to the design over the past year.

Initial design: This is the design that the subreddit had when I became mod.

Here the subreddit has a very clean look, the sidebar looks nice but the banner I felt needed improving. The actual EFL Championship logo had changed since then too so it made sense to replace it.

New header design: This is the first design I contributed to.

As you can see, I updated the brand to the new EFL Championship logo and included some of the leagues players in the header. I used the theme r/Naut as a starting point to give the theme a fresher look.

Updated sidebar/post flair: I added a lot more to the sidebar taking inspiration from other subreddits such as r/NFL and r/NHL, I also took inspiration from r/LiverpoolFC and r/NUFC for the post flair.

Sidebar: Info

Sidebar: League Table

Sidebar: Fixtures

Sidebar: Scorers

Sidebar: Live on TV

Updated header: I changed the header image again ready for the 2017/18 season. I took inspiration from r/detroitlions for this one where the players are black and white by default and change to colour when you hover over them. The header is a lot bigger than previously and it’s something I’m not a big fan of but was needed for the new design. It’s probably something I will change in the next version.

That’s all for this post, thank you all for reading, and if you have any suggestions for the subreddit, please let me know!
