The server is open to all, and it can be used to discuss the game, the wiki, or anything else. We're a laid back community that tries not to take ourselves or anything too seriously, so come hang out with us!
All of the Wiki's rules and all of RuneScape's rules apply here. If you need additional detail, see the clan chat's rules (as very similar media they basically apply fine here too). If you need less detail, see RS:DBAD.
Offending users may have their roles removed (if they have any), their ability to use text and/or voice chat in any/all channels removed, or may outright banned from the server temporarily or permanently, at the discretion of the administrators.

The RuneScape Wiki server is happy to accommodate non-English RuneScape Wikis by providing a
#wiki and recent changes channel (and access to easier collaboration/coding help/etc with English RuneScape Wiki editors, if needed). If you are an administrator of another language RuneScape Wiki and want to branch off of this server instead of (or in addition to) creating your own, please contact one of the
@rs wiki bureaucrats or
@rs wiki admins.
Currently, the (Brazilian) Portuguese and the Old-School RuneScape Wikis have done so.
