Forum:My Project Help
Im currently working on a big project witch is at the moment unnamed , it going to be a project that will let you do the following:
- Read books - as in the soul wars book let you read it on the wiki
- Watch Cutscene - view cutscene on the wiki
- Scrolls - Similar to books but scrolls
- Videos - users, jagex and official runescape video viewable on site
it basically a library or a massive content it hopefully be useful to all, to see work in progress see http://runescape.wikia.com/wiki/User:Parsonsda/Sandbox, please tell me if this is useful it my best idea yet!

Comment - There is already a discussion about this at Forum:Dialogue pages. It is probably against copyright, making it illegal. Copying all the text they came up with is copyright infringement.
Also, watching youtube videos on the wiki is already possible using the <youtube> tags (or are they disabled here? I've seen them on some wikis). Oil4 Talk 18:58, January 31, 2010 (UTC)
Comment Why? Most of the b ooks are already transcribed, how are you planning on doing all the cutscenes, are you personally planning on making a new account and doing every quest for the cutscenes, where are you planning to upload these cutscenes, what purpose do they serve? Why do you want to show people official runescape videos, what pages will they be appropriate to link to videos?19:14, January 31, 2010 (UTC)
- Request for closure - Parsons is being an attention-whore again, trying to get his name famous for doing something to "benefit" the wiki. I understand that he is TRYING to help, but he is still just vying for fame here on the wiki. --WINE OF GOOD HEALTH (Actually Stinko) 19:26, January 31, 2010 (UTC)
- Comment - Why are everybody so mean to Parsonsda? (Especially in the cc) He just wants to help. Of course he might not be the best speller around, but come on.. How would you feel if you were in his shoes? AGF and AEAE pls. FredeTalk 20:00, January 31, 2010 (UTC)
Comment - Although I support your ideas, these ideas are already being proposed.
- Transcripts of books and dialogues are already being discussed in another YG topic, but it is actually illegal to put them here.
- <outube> tags work on the wiki, but we do not allow you to use them in articles. A YouTube channel has already been proposed to be reopened, and in a day or two I will request the trial to be passed as their is general consensus for a trial there. Then we can make videos and include cutscenes, quest guides, etc.
