Okay, in regards to:

This is out of hand. Seriously. It seems like every time I come to this Wiki to contribute, I see some kind of war involving someone named Totally Rune, Stinkowing, some Christine girl and Earthere.

Are you all in 4th grade?

Please grow up. I've reported this incident to Wikia. I'm sick and tired of people's drama being brought here.Planeshifted 17:08, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

LOL XÞ. I've seen the same thing. Get over it (towards the arguers(?)). You guys do realise this wiki is for RuneScape and nothing else?? Sure, we're not perfect but COME ON! Derilith 19:22, 10 September 2008 (UTC)
I've been gone for a month, the only recent time you've been active. -.- Christine 20:21, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

I really don't care. May be coloured blue in the near 11:55, 11 September 2008 (UTC)
Planeshifted...if you're not involved in any of those "wars", please stay out of this whole thing. You don't know Total Rune, you don't normally speak to Earthere and I, and Christine is someone I see you normally getting along with. Why try to condemn what we do now when you don't know what any of this is about? That link to my talk page? None of your business. These "wars" stem from incidents that occured WAY before you joined, so I don't see ANY reason for you to get involved. Please...have some common sense. Barging in and telling people to "grow up" when we're trying our best to ward Total Rune away from the wiki isn't helping at all. I must apologize for sounding harsh, --WINE OF GOOD HEALTH (Actually Stinko)
Like Stinko said, [[User:Total Rune|Total Rune]] is our main concern. May be coloured blue in the near 12:30, 11 September 2008 (UTC)
It is my business as I edit here regularly. Do not attempt to bully me. I reported the situation to Wikia and from my understanding Jsharp intervened. If this Total Rune person is a threat to the wiki, do what I did and take it to the high court - Wikia.Planeshifted 17:00, 11 September 2008 (UTC)
Hi there. I feel that I should say that I did not intervene as this wiki has very competent local administrators and they had already blocked the user in question by the time I received a call for attention to this matter. You can find a list of local administrators at ListUsers/sysop to whom you can report problems such as this and they will act on them. However, If you are unable to contact them please feel free e-mail me at [email protected] -- JSharp (talk) <staff /> 18:33, 11 September 2008 (UTC)
And this, folks, is why Wikia is held in low regard. May be coloured blue in the near 19:19, 11 September 2008 (UTC)
What did you expect the Wikia general admins to be doing here? There certainly are a bunch of admins that are acting in nearly a professional capacity and stay out of these petty fights. I'd have to say that I really don't like administrators making comments like this to anybody, and all this accomplishes is to feed the trolls and encourage these sort of flame wars. Planeshifted is offering a legitimate complaint here about this sort of behavior, and perhaps this behavior needs to be called on the carpet.
As for Total Rune, he is a troll and should be treated as such. He is coming back as a recurring vandal, and as such needs to be dealt with on occasion, but it is the behavior of the admins involved that does warrant some attention by the community as well. Such is the life of a wiki.--Robert Horning 00:47, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

Exactly what is this obsession you seem to have with me Earthere? I've stayed neutral throughout your war with christine (and what seems to be an eighth of the other admins here) yet you seem to be against me for some reason lately. If you have an issue with me do say so, however, until then leave me out of this. 01:37, 12 September 2008 (UTC)
I don't have any issues with you really. Those were just examples I found in approx 5 minutes. Two of them show my buddies wheel warring, and two of the links just make me look bad. =p May be coloured blue in the near 10:20, 12 September 2008 (UTC)
Very well then, I was rather irritable last night as I had taken the wrong medicine for this damn cold I've got (which doubled my symptoms :@). Anyway, now that that's cleared up, Robert I completely agree with you, some around here seem to be unable to control their tempers while others seem to allow personal vendettas to influence their behaivor, though of course that's the minority I still believe a few of these issues should be resolved. I doubt that this will result in any major problems for the wiki, many of these have been around for a while, and don't really think this is our most urgent issue right now. 18:13, 12 September 2008 (UTC)
