Hello. I was directed here through a series of talk page messages and other things, and thought I'd let you know that you really should protect the main page. It's an obvious target for vandals. DoomsDay349 03:20, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

It is protected from unregistered users. The majority of vandals won't bother to take the time to register when they can just vandalize a bunch of random pages anonymously and cause us just as much hassle. Welcome to the Wiki, though. ^^ --Avian Maid 03:28, 7 November 2006 (UTC)


I'm sorry if this is late or irrelevant, but I was browsing some pages, and I'd REALLY appreciate it if you stopped seeing Shadowdancer as a bad guy. He had his bad days, but I looked into why he was easy to anger and banned half the people who edited here, and I understand a bit more now. If you want the details, I'm ingame a bit more lately, but please, either forget about him, or talk about his good contributions.

I've moved this to the talk page. I don't know what this is about, but I'm fairly sure we don't need to blank the main page for it. Shadowdancer quit this wiki ages ago, so I don't know why you think anyone here is seeing him as a bad guy. Angela talk 07:22, 13 November 2006 (UTC)
...I didn't blank it. O_o It was merely a notice at the top. I'm guessing you view the wiki on a low resolution...? And I was reading the requests for admin, and everyone was mentioning how NOT to be like him and stuff. Oddlyoko 17:23, 13 November 2006 (UTC)
I can see how it may have been an accident with the HTML comment tags, but check this revision to see that the page was blanked. Angela talk 07:59, 16 November 2006 (UTC)
Well caught! - looking at the code, the html comment was incorrectly closed and turned everything following into part of the comment. As for Shadowdancer, a good editor, but that doesn't automatically make someone a good admin - He'd probably still be here and contributing if it wasn't for that. Ace of Risk 17:45, 16 November 2006 (UTC)
We're not continuing to bad-mouth him, just his comments (and comments on him) have been left untouched. I think he's a good content contributor, but would I want him back? Not in a million years. --Eucarya 17:49, 13 November 2006 (UTC)
Then I guess this really was late and irrelevant. My mistake. Oddlyoko 17:54, 13 November 2006 (UTC)

bank space

You need to add the new update about bank space and galleries to the main page.

Speaking of graphics

  • pokes* Hey, RuneScape got the Hunter skill and new graphics for the imps, you might want to update the main page. Don't worry though, it only happened about 10 seconds ago, you've got plenty of time. Speaking of the new graphics...can someone go around and replace the old graphics/animations of the creatures that have been updated with the current graphics? I'd do it myself, but I play on low detail, so my screenshots look awful :P. --Raven110283 10:44, 21 November 2006 (UTC)

Update notification

We have update! Someone fix the updates section, I'm off to the forums to sort out what we need to add/change/remove/whatever. --Raven110283 12:11, 12 December 2006 (UTC)

Update this page

xmas pics from postie and new quest animal magnetism need to be added

What's this quest thing?

There's a new quest or something "Coming Soon" called Barbarian Assault... What is it? And if it is a quest is it for FTP to? Bassium!

See Barbarian assault. As for being FtP—don't count on it. :( Woodcutting-icon.png HYEN-ASTE 20:59, 20 January 2022 (UTC)

Portugese RuneScape wiki

Click the link on the main page. It has no articles and has been inactive since August. I don't think we should link to it until it gets some content. 22:46, 23 December 2006 (UTC)

The site now has a main page. Please leave the link since it could encourage Portuguese speakers to revive that wiki. It's more likely to stay dead if no one can even find it. Angela talk 15:16, 24 December 2006 (UTC)

Merry Christmas Everyone

Christmas is over is it really nessecary to have the "Merry Christmas Everyone!!" at the top of each page? --Whiplash 14:49, 26 December 2006 (UTC)

I think we are keeping that there untill Jagex removes the X-mas event from the game. Sysop crown.svg Megalodon99 (Talk) score 15:01, 26 December 2006 (UTC)

Well, its been changed now, if it makes you happier. ДҖ--Huanghe63talk 06:36, 1 January 2007 (UTC)

I see. But you spelled awesome wrong :P Dtm142 17:46, 1 January 2007 (UTC)

Featured Article

I changed [[Template:Featuredarticle]] to have an image from the mid plunder mini game. It looks better this way. Yellow partyhat.png Ilyas Talk Contribs19:47, 1 January 2007 (UTC)

Featured Article / Article of the Month

I've been looking at our main page, and I've come to the realization that having a featured article every month doesn't feature our articles well. With over 2,000 articles, many excellent articles will never be features. Admittedly, we can rule out several hundred articles as stubs or small articles on items, but we have many excellent articles, and there are only twelve months to each year. I think having a featured article every week would not only further advertise the depth of our knowledge base and bring more interesting articles to light, but would bring a bit more change to our main page. --Gangsterls 02:16, 19 February 2007 (UTC)

...Any thoughts on this issue? --Gangsterls 03:20, 19 February 2007 (UTC)
...?? Come on does ANYONE have ANY opinion?! --Gangsterls 16:39, 19 February 2007 (UTC)
We barely get enough nominations for one a month let alone one a week. And besides, I was looking around earlier for something new and shiny (that we haven't had before and isn't a quest) and was struggling a bit. The only time we've ever had more than 5 votes for an article of the month was this month (probably cos the readership has gone up). One a month is fine, at least until we're getting some seriously good content creation going. --Eucarya Talk 16:44, 19 February 2007 (UTC)
Ohhh I didn't realize articles had to be nominated to be features. Maybe we should improve our location guides and feature some of them? Membership is increasing, and hopefully it will bring more thorough articles and more new articles.


someone add the behind the scenes march its been out for more than half an hour, we realllllllllllyyyyyyy need to improve the speed of this.

Hi. I happen to have the power to do so. Unfortunately A) I have occasionally been known to need sleep. B) I just stayed up way past my bedtime writing the guide C) The evolution of my third arm is coming along slowly. I can only do so much at one time. I'm not sure, but I think the others might have some of those limitations too. Less so the writing of the guide, but you get the idea. It will happen. Just not by me. I need sleep. Calm, little one. ^^ Avian Maid 13:03, 6 March 2007 (UTC)


lol thanks, and I am calm, a pool of serenity in fact ohhhhmmmmmmmmm, lol Green partyhat.png Bob2006ty(RUNESTORM333)  talk Green partyhat.png 13:13 6 March 2007 (UTC)

I don't have time to do it - I'm at work. Anyone wanting to do it needs to add the entries in Updates -> game updates. Then update template:updates. Please bold our quest guide - eg Read our guide to The Great Brain Robbery and help update it! --Eucarya Talk 13:21, 6 March 2007 (UTC)
Just done the honours. Surprised to see a complete guide! A big thank you to Avian Maid (and sweet dreams)! --Miw 14:31, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

kk will do it for yas in future read guides etc, Green partyhat.png Bob2006ty(RUNESTORM333)  talk Green partyhat.png

I set up a news thing...

Does anyone like the new news thing. We should keep the 3 newest news topics on the template, which goes on the main page if you were wondering, and display a link to the RuneScape:News page. Like this, Read more... The news page could have about 10 topics on it at a time.Yellow partyhat.png Ilyas Talk Contribs15:19, 11 March 2007 (UTC)



It doesn't say "Main Page" any more

I've just changed monobook.js so that it no longer says "Main Page" on the er, main page. It should give the front page that fresh trimmed look, and a bit more eyeball space. What do we think? (control-f5 to ensure you get the latest .js file) --Eucarya Talk 20:59, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

I think thats a good idea, it does make the home page look better, and less cluttered, nice. Green partyhat.png Bob2006ty(RUNESTORM333)  talk Green partyhat.png 15 March 12pm
