After a long 3 years, Wikifest returns in 2017! Join us for a few hours of activities with the greater RuneScape Wiki community. Anyone is welcome to join - whether you are a former editor, current editor, RSW clan member, guest in the RSW clan, or just use the wiki. See this page for the event program, recommended items/quests, and a gallery of images taken at the event.

IMPORTANT: For this year's Wikifest, you do not need membership to participate in the whole event. This weekend is Open Weekend from 12:00 UTC 9 June to 12:00 UTC 12 June. Therefore all program events will be on a members world.

Before the event[edit source]

There are no requirements to participate, technically, but for some of the events we do recommend the following:

Costume contests[edit source]

A Wikifest staple, the costume contests used to be general and without themes or categories. This year, we are having 5 categories with the following descriptions. Please see the Gallery section at the bottom of the page for images of the winning outfits for each category. Also please keep examine settings set to "anyone" for the contests.

Category Description Winners
Best in show Dankest, genuinely good-looking fashionscape only. Strut your stuff in your best outfit because you're a model and the camera loves you, honey. Loish
Worst in show Have you ever been called ugly? Do you like being ugly? Do you think your outfits are pretty good, but your friends tell you otherwise? Is User:Liquidhelium your style inspiration? This category is for you. Gluttony
Best use of keepsake keys No specific theme, just any outfit according to the following rules: Tumeken (Clue Scrolls)
Comedy gold Meme work makes the dream work. Give others a chuckle with whatever wacky humor you can throw into an outfit. Hepatitis-B
Cosplay You like themes? We like themes. Come in a themed outfit - as a movie character, a lost penguin in the desert, or the fake plastic tree from your dentist's office. Just tell us what your costume is supposed to be. Ed Hillary

Event Program[edit source]

Times are tentative, and we may spend more or less time on a given activity on the actual day of the event.

Event Time (UTC) Details
Meet n' greet 18:00-18:15 Everyone will arrive at the Keep in the RSW Clan Citadel to meet up with their fellow wikians.
Group pictures 18:15-18:25 All of the wikians will line up in different fun formations to take numerous pictures as we also wait for some latecomers.
Costume contests 18:25-18:50 Optional: Costume(s)
Everyone participating in the costume contests will put on their outfits and be judged by a panel. Winners will receive a prize and have their photos taken for the Gallery at the bottom of the page.
Zombie tag 18:50-19:25 Required: Zombie mask, Zombie shirt, and Zombie trousers
Take off your overrides and keep your zombie outfit handy for a game of zombie tag! We will teleport to a few cities and everyone except one person will hide, without zombie gear on. One zombie will enter the area, find others, and trade them to tag them. Anyone tagged turns into a zombie and puts on their outfit to search for other remaining humans. The last human remaining wins a prize for that round.
Drop party 19:25-19:40 Our next stop is the Party Room where a variety of interesting items will be put into the chest in the drop party. Everyone will have a chance to receive something.
Menaphos Flash mob 19:40-19:55 Required: Complete Stolen Hearts, Diamond in the Rough, and The Jack of Spades
Optional: Camel mask or Desert-themed outfit, Cabbages, Compost, Kebabs to bomb the city
We will teleport to Menaphos and travel as a flash mob to bomb several areas and districts with cabbages, compost, and kebabs. Feel free to wear a camel mask or wear desert-themed outfits as we explore the new city together!
Hunger Games 19:55-End Optional: Combat gear, potions, food
Rounding out the wikifest will be some healthy PvP in the Clan Wars white portal. All participants will wait in the Clan Wars lobby, and one host will call out people to enter the arena. Players will enter one by one, and may make alliances and hide somewhere in the multi-combat area until everyone is in. There will be a countdown until everyone is free to attack others. Choose your friends wisely, because only one person will be crowned the winner of a round. The host outside will keep track of who is in a round and who has been eliminated. Afterward, the winner will receive a prize. Hunger Games will continue until the remaining event participants diminish and the event ends.

Gallery[edit source]

Group photos, winning costume contest outfits, and other videos or images taken during the Wikifest will be placed here. If you have some, host them off-site and not on the actual wiki. We hope you had a great time!
