It's spelled differently several times in the wiki. What spelling should it be? We don't need two different spellings.Dave Lopo 02:48, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

We use the British version of English here, so it should be colour. If you see "color" anywhere in an article, feel free to change it. --Andorin (Talk) (Contribs) 04:14, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Since Jagex is British, we use British English, so it would be "colour". The reason both spellings are used is because as much as half of the editors here are used to spelling it as "color", and so type it as such out of habit. I'll admit, I tend to type it without the extra "u" unless I catch myself before submitting my edit. Dragon medium helm!

Seeing as how we have both American/Canadian and British editors here on the wiki and both spellings mean the same thing with a letter or two difference, why even bother. This is one of those things that we should not really put any effort into changing because its not really a problem. Cap and goggles.pngTEbuddy 04:31, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
Which is why enormous resources are not put into hunting down each and every instance of "color" and fixing it ASAP. Nonetheless it's a good idea to change them as you come across them because as bridge builders know so well, consistency = good. --Andorin (Talk) (Contribs) 04:38, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
It doesn't matter anyway, in honesty I could give a toppled bridge whether or not we change the spellings. Cap and goggles.pngTEbuddy 07:29, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
I agree with Andorin. Consistancy = good. RuneScape is an English game; therefore, we change the word spellings so it is that way. I always add the extra u when I see a mistake. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 00:59, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
I think we should do the British way. It is a British game, so we should use their grammar/spelling/language. That's all I have to say. Prayer Jediadam4 (Talk) Bandosgodsword.gif 08:01, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
