Forum:Rebranding the RuneScape Wiki
Following today's [[w:User blog:Craiglpalmer/Wikia is now Fandom powered by Wikia|groundbreaking announcement]] by CEO of Wikia, Inc. Craig Palmer, I would like to propose the next step in the evolution of this incredible community-supported fansite: the rebranding of the RuneScape Wiki to RuneScape Wiki powered by Fandom powered by Wikia.
By building greater brand awareness around RuneScape Wiki powered by Fandom powered by Wikia, we'll be better positioned to bring our hard work out to RuneScape players and draw the attention of more editors to the wiki. Our competitors, including Tip.It, Rune HQ, and Sal's Realm, are already pushing the envelope; we need to synergistically target leading-edge paradigms in order to stay ahead of the fansite ecosystem.
I have modified our current logo to incorporate this new wording:
As the first community to be ranked number one on Wikia Activity Monitor, and a community that has been at the top of WAM for the past four years, we need to set the standard for how a wiki should behave. In the interest of unity and to demonstrate our support for Wikia, Inc.'s innovative leadership, all dissenting votes will be stricken and opposing voters blocked for a period of six (6) months; neutral voters and users that have not voted on this thread will be blocked for three (3) months.
The closing administrator should put the proposal into effect no earlier than October 4th, to coincide with the date that Wikia.com officially becomes Fandom powered by Wikia. I hope you will join me in celebrating this historic occasion.

Comment - Wikia isn't trying to make people to call their wikis "wikias" any more. They're going through all their documentation and taking the "a" off. It's not all evil. --Saftzie (talk) 18:24, September 27, 2016 (UTC)
Extreme bukkit support - This is clearly within the best interests of all wiki communities. The impact this change will have will pave the way to a brighter future for all. 18:36, September 27, 2016 (UTC)

Sup-ose - I, too, enjoy spending most of my time shoveling shit down my throat, provided it's all provided by Wikia powered by fandom powered by Wikia! --WINE OF GOOD HEALTH (Actually Stinko) 20:23, September 28, 2016 (UTC)
Ewwwww Next month we can be sponsored by Honda, then GE, blah blah blah. I just think it looks too ad like, but whatever, I'm not going to be affected either way. I will get used to it.Degenret01 (talk) 16:40, September 30, 2016 (UTC)

Closed due to unanimous support. Ciph and Degen will be blocked for 6 months and 3 months respectively. I will be updating our logo on October 4th. -- 18:21, September 30, 2016 (UTC)
So, since you're rebranding, you'll be okay with switching everything to portable infoboxes by today aswell, right? Slay(Talk)([[w:c:elisavetera|wiki]])(website)(discord server) 20:35, October 4, 2016 (UTC)
- Yes, and we'll switch to the new forums as well as user blogs as soon as we can. 20:38, October 4, 2016 (UTC)
