The RuneScape Wiki celebrates April Fools every year, like Jagex, by playing extremely funny practical jokes.
Best practices to follow for April Fools ideas for the wiki:
- Keep jokes and pranks out of article content. Edits that change existing information into false or misleading information will be considered vandalism.
- Avoid overlays that cover up content, cannot be hidden or dismissed, or otherwise interfere with normal browsing of the wiki.
Past April Fools jokes[edit source]
The RuneScape Wiki releases Crabby, a virtual assistant inspired by Microsoft's Office Assistant. It appears in the bottom left corner of the window with interactive dialogue, and unique lines appearing on specific pages.
A full-length advertisement for Crabby in the style of Apple's marketing replaces the main page (an archived version can be found here), and a Crabby banner is placed in the sitenotice.
