I saw a couple of new Wikia wikis that were recently created that have caused my head to scratch in terms of what the Wikia staff is thinking by even creating wikis like these: *[[c:runemoney|Runescape's Hidden Tips Wiki]] *[[c:runescape-money-making|How To Make Money On Runescape Wiki]] Both of them seem like hot spots for the dark underside of the Runescape culture, things that IMHO could only be far worse than the unrunescape wiki that was recently shut down. I raise this issue here as these appear to be organized as "sister sites" to this wiki, and it is something that at least the general users of this wiki should be aware of. At the moment there is no content on either wiki so it isn't necessarily something for drastic concern. As to why I'm concerned about the themes of these wikis.... I'll leave that for you to decide on your own. --Robert Horning 15:26, 31 August 2009 (UTC)

Well, Wikia staff doesn't create these Wiki's. Every logged-in users can create a Wiki, and every day 100s Wiki's are created. Mark (Tedjuh10) - Talk 15:33, 31 August 2009 (UTC)
Ever since they decided to automate the system we've been getting things like this and numerous duplicate wikis.-- 15:35, 31 August 2009 (UTC)
It's very annoying... Wikia has the ability to add Wiki names to a list of forbidden names; this may be put to use in this case. Mark (Tedjuh10) - Talk 16:47, 31 August 2009 (UTC)
Would it be possible to request that wikis cannot be created if the word "RuneScape" is in them? — Enigma 05:58, September 2, 2009 (UTC)
That's a lot of wiki's...[1] Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 14:48, September 2, 2009 (UTC)
It can be requested, but Wikia will probably reject it. But however "Gold" "Free" "Member" "Goldfarmer" can be banned from Wiki creation, just send a message at Special:Contact. Mark (Tedjuh10) - Talk 15:06, September 2, 2009 (UTC)
