Guidelines[edit source]

  • Users must have contributed to the wiki in some way, for example:
    • having a large number of edits, or high-quality or high-profile edits
    • being involved with various projects
    • interaction with the community on the wiki forums or in the clan
These are not hard requirements, so if you think a user should be granted the title, nominate them with your reasoning. The title is not meant to be exclusive.
  • Nominees, nominators, and commenters should have a wiki account at least 2 weeks old
  • Currently blocked users are disqualified from being nominated, including being blocked during the process
  • Nominations should:
    • include a description of why the user should be awarded the title
    • use the usual support/oppose/etc comments; users should not oppose based on the recency of the latest contributions of the candidate nor how new the user is (as long as they are over 2 weeks old)
    • run for one week
  • There is no quota on:
    • The number of wiki users that can receive the title
    • The number of in-game accounts each user can have the title applied to (but be reasonable as it is a manual process)
  • Contributors of the Old School RuneScape Wiki, Brazilian-Portuguese RuneScape Wiki, and RuneScape Classic Wiki are also welcome to be nominated here. Candidates from the Brazilian-Portuguese RuneScape Wiki should add |lang=pt after the |links=no in the {{Userinfo}} template

These rules were discussed in Forum:The Wikian, and amended in Forum:Self nominating for the Wikian and Forum:Do we need another discussion on the Wikian?.

Nominating[edit source]

To nominate yourself or another user, please follow these steps:

  1. If nominating another user, let them know that you wish to nominate them - they may decline, in which case stop here. While it is optional to ask before nominating them, it is better to do so beforehand.
  2. Enter the nominee's username in the box below:
  3. The nominee should fill in their in-game account name in the marked section, or check them if already filled in. Make sure that exact spelling of the name(s) is clear; if the name contains more than one space in a row, use underscores _ for readability.

The request is now ready for general commentary.

Completing[edit source]

After a week, an administrator should determine consensus and close the nomination. The discussion should be archived in the current (or a new) archive.

Successful nominations should have the user (and accounts) added to RuneScape:The Wikian/Users, the most recent archive, and the current owner of the Wikian book (Gaz Lloyd) notified - remember that both users (the Wikian book user and the successful nominee) have to meet up in-game to grant the title. Place {{subst:RS:TPM}} on the user's talk page to notify them of the successful request.

Users should also be notified of an unsuccessful nomination by placing {{subst:RS:TPFM}} on the user's talk page.
