I think it would be a good idea to add a link to the homepage showing the Runescape Wiki sister sites: RS Classic Wiki, OldScape Wiki, RS players wiki, and the RS Clans Wiki. These wiki's are related to RuneScape in general and i'm sure many people don't even know about them. It would be nice to see them all connected like this and they all have over 1000+ pages so the Wiki's are worthy of it. Bloodoceandeth (talk) 05:23, September 5, 2013 (UTC)

Comment - We do link to RSC Wiki and Old School RS Wiki, although only to relevant articles (such as Dwarf cannon), and RS Players Wiki links here only exist in Skill mastery (I think). However I don't see the necessity to link our site to our sister sites, but I don't see the harm in doing so either. -- Recent uploads SpineTalkGuest book 06:02, September 5, 2013 (UTC)

Comment - We're not sister sites with the RS Players Wiki, so I'd be against linking to that site. Linking to OldScape (ew) Wiki and RS Classic Wiki, sure, why not? I don't think we should link to the RS Clans Wiki though, because I feel the quality there is along the lines of the RS Players Wiki. Blaze_fire.png12.png 07:42, September 5, 2013 (UTC)

What about the 2006Scape wiki? User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 15:36, September 5, 2013 (UTC)
I don't know if you're being serious or not. Also, no. Blaze_fire.png12.png 15:43, September 5, 2013 (UTC)
While we're at it, why not add the Prunescape Wiki as well? Not to mention the ScamScape Wiki too. ;) --Jlun2 (talk) 05:37, September 11, 2013 (UTC)
Seems decent to me. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 16:50, September 5, 2013 (UTC)
Except it's completely a fanmade project. In addition, I'm pretty sure it died. Blaze_fire.png12.png 18:42, September 5, 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, that was in reference to the original project itself, not the wiki. Blaze_fire.png12.png 17:55, September 6, 2013 (UTC)
Isn't that wiki about a pirviate server? (Private servers are bad btw) Adventurer's log Wahisietel (Talk) Quest map icon.png 16:47, September 8, 2013 (UTC)
Aye, my bad. "Pirviate" servers sulk suck. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 18:24, September 8, 2013 (UTC)
My spelling also sucks, aparrently. Adventurer's log Wahisietel (Talk) Quest map icon.png 19:41, September 8, 2013 (UTC)
'tis not 'aparrent' whether serious or trolling. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 20:09, September 8, 2013 (UTC)
It was an intentional typo. orwasit?Adventurer's log Wahisietel (Talk) Quest map icon.png 08:32, September 9, 2013 (UTC)

RuneScape:Links is already on the homepage (albeit the bottom of it). It's also linked on literally every page on the wiki with the nav bar. MolMan 15:39, September 5, 2013 (UTC)

Probably less than ten people click that link a year, it's so well-hidden. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 20:13, September 6, 2013 (UTC)
More traffic than this proposal would ever get. MolMan 20:16, September 6, 2013 (UTC)

Comment - It's the 2007scape Wiki or the Old School RuneScape Wiki, not the "OldScape Wiki" (ugh). As Spine has stated above, we're already affiliated with both the RSC Wiki and the Old School RS Wiki. I am against linking to either the RuneScape Players Wiki or the RuneScape Clans Wiki.

Closure - RSC Wiki and OSRS Wiki already have links in relevant articles on the top right corner of the article, with icons Classic Runestone.png for RSC Wiki and Old School RuneScape icon.png for Old School RuneScape wiki. The RuneScape Wiki will not add links to the RS Players Wiki and the RS Clans Wiki. -- Recent uploads SpineTalkGuest book 03:19, September 12, 2013 (UTC)
