New layout

I really think the Main Page needs a new layout. It seems really unorganized and way too bulky the way it currently is.--Richard 03:16, 5 October 2007 (UTC)


The main page REALLY needs a new layout.


Could you explain what you think needs changing? Sysop crown.svgTes FanSysop crown.svg 22:35, 8 October 2007 (UTC)

Chat effects

How come the Chat effects don't work anymore?

Go to the wrench next to the logout door in your menu. Click on the chat bubbles that appear in that menu. (The one in the middle, with the "ABC") --Mura 18:43, 7 October 2007 (UTC)

Search priority

Guys we are know longer no 1 search result when "runescape wiki" is google searched, what happened? Did someone change the meta? Green partyhat.png Bob2006ty(RUNESTORM333)  talk Green partyhat.png

I just searched a minute or so ago, and I got these links in respected order for first 4 linked to on Google.
  1. Main Page - RuneScape Wiki
  2. RuneScape - Wikipedia
  3. Portal:RuneScape - Wikipedia
  4. Main Page - Dark RuneScape Wiki Dragon medium helm! Whaddaya know?Chiafriend12Better than rune!I have 12 friends. 22:43, 8 October 2007 (UTC)

i got runescape wikipedia 1st then the wiki Green partyhat.png Bob2006ty(RUNESTORM333)  talk Green partyhat.png

Would it be possible for the wiki to include calculators for skill training and combat such as other websites do? someone would have to write them of course, I wouldnt know where to start there, what language or anything like that, but I know one of the major criticisms of this site is it does not have calculators, my freinds are drawn to other sites because of this, although they do say we have really fast quest guide releases they all use this site for quests, a few have signed up to contribute.

Green partyhat.png Bob2006ty(RUNESTORM333)  talk Green partyhat.png

Yes!! A combat Calculator and a Max hit calculator would come in handy.

It's cool, but I think it stands out too much. Dragon medium helm! Whaddaya know?Chiafriend12Better than rune!I have 12 friends. 01:14, 1 November 2007 (UTC)

I'm not sure, my thoughts are simmiler to the ones in this discussion, in that

"The point of the main page is to feature the encyclopedia's content. A quote is not encyclopedia content. Plus, how would they be seleted? "*Support very intelligent sounding" and "*Oppose doesn't sound good"? That's rather subjective, as can be expected, since there is really no objective way to pick a quote. In conclusion, this isn't happening."

Just my thoughts. Sysop crown.svgTes FanSysop crown.svg 13:29, 6 November 2007 (UTC)

Excuse me, but IT'S NOT CHRISTMAS.

<annoyed> It's the eleventh of November. There are 44 days until Christmas. Why do we have the lights up? I propose we change to Christmas style while the Christmas event is out, not before not after. Hm? </annoyed> JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 15:11, 11 November 2007 (UTC)

Where is the Christmas? ChristineTalk 15:19, 11 November 2007 (UTC)
I swear a few minutes ago the skill icons around the great big banner at the top of the main page had been replaced with christmas items. Well, either way, we can still discuss; not until the Event comes out, yes? JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 15:21, 11 November 2007 (UTC)
Yes. ChristineTalk 15:22, 11 November 2007 (UTC)

Searching WIKI's

It's not clear to me how to search this marvelous wiki. This must have been talked about before but I find it hard to understand a wiki as being a wiki without a search facility. Could someone please add a search box to every page, says he glibly? Regards, ptolomeus. I'll go and register now and will be happy to concentrate on crossing t's and dotting i's.

I believe it depends what skin you're using as to where the search box is, but you've always got one. JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 22:55, 11 November 2007 (UTC)
Ah, I see it, apologies. It's different from the style.Ptolomeus 22:19, 12 November 2007 (UTC)
You can change it to the Wikipedia skin. I did. JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 22:40, 12 November 2007 (UTC)


The Main Page was recently vandalised by an unknown person. I hope someone can fix it up and block the Ip 02:30, 14 November 2007 (UTC)

Fixed. I've blocked the vandal and reverted his edits. Thank you for your report! Dtm142 02:35, 14 November 2007 (UTC)


Everytime i click on, or even hit search, on null, it redirects to the main page. Why is this?--Pkthis 23:44, 17 November 2007 (UTC) yeah i get the same thing, annoying. Green partyhat.png Bob2006ty(RUNESTORM333)  talk Green partyhat.png 12:24, 19 November 2007 (UTC)

A Wiki Craze

Doesn't making all these new wiki's help banned players come back?

ToaBionicle Guthix's Book of Balance.png Assassin

Yes. But if they use names from before then most likely they'll be immediately banned.--Richard 22:31, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, it's not like we can get rid of all the other wikis. C Teng 23:11, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

New main page proposal

A new design for the main page can be found at User:Skill/Main Page. Please say weather or not you think this should be the new main page design. Sysop crown.svgTes FanSysop crown.svg 03:40, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

It looks great, so yes. May be coloured blue in the near 03:44, 26 November 2007 (UTC)
Looks fine, I support.Yellow partyhat.png Ilyas Talk Contribs 03:45, 26 November 2007 (UTC)
I prefer the way it currently looks. Dragon medium helm! Whaddaya know?Chiafriend12Better than rune!I have 12 friends. 06:43, 26 November 2007 (UTC)
I prefer the current layout also. ChristineTalk 21:35, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

I dislike the current Main Page design mainly for these reasons:

  1. Too many lines are used in the boxes (----). I don't get why certain sections require these lines. In my opinion, they make the text look very ugly.
  2. News. I believe that game news and wiki news should be in one box. Game updates can be linked to their own articles (I don't really care about the little blurb Jagex puts out for each new update meaning it can be left out or included in the update page), with wiki news or whatever remaining the same though in the same template. In other words, all news should be in {{News}}.
  3. The poll is hideous. I just hate the dotted lines; it just does not look nice. However, this cannot be fixed due to <poll> not being editable.
  4. The Wikia gaming banner I'd prefer to see underneath all boxes on the very bottom of the page. It looks nicer stretched across the page.
  5. I don't like how featured articles are up for a week. I'd like to see it change every week or two (after all, there are over 60,580 articles).
  6. The "top content" box isn't that great. What I find works good is linking to categories that are neatly spread across the entire page or at the bottom of the page.

That's pretty much my rant. Your Main Page is nice Skill. I'd like to see some changes but I like yours better than the current one.--Richard 22:21, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

I like Skill's version of the main page better tan the current one.--ExpensiveNick Advent 00:08, 28 November 2007 (UTC)

You're design is good, Skill, but I think that the "User of the Month" should be higher up, and I think the "Top Content" should stay where it is. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 15:25, 2 December 2007 (UTC)

I agree, the main page is doing well for the most part currently, it's not like the world map article that desperately needs a new pic after the GE & now the wilderness updates came out.Azaz129 01:02, 4 December 2007 (UTC)


Um.. is there any point to having all these other languages when RuneScape can only be played in English and German? White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 02:25, 29 November 2007 (UTC)

I've seen people speaking Spanish, Dutch, and French in-game. Players from other countries may know limited English (it may be their second language), but would understand articles better in their native language, which is why those wikis have been created. Slayer-icon.png Gangsterls Divination-icon.png talk02:31, 29 November 2007 (UTC)

It's not possible to create a german RuneScape Wiki, right? White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 00:54, 1 December 2007 (UTC)

If someone wanted a German RuneScape Wiki created, they could go to Wikia Central at and request it to be created. That's how all the others were created, as sister projects to this wiki. Slayer-icon.png Gangsterls Divination-icon.png talk01:32, 1 December 2007 (UTC)

Well, now there is a German RuneScape wiki! I created it we have 2 RS related articles! (Santa Hat and TzTok Jad) Blue partyhat.png Da bomba3talk2meSandy Red partyhat.png 03:05, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

Grand Exchange Market Watch

I think we should include the RuneScape:Grand Exchange Market Watch on the main page under popular articles. I know it is only getting started but I know that there will be more items being watched as more people become aware of it. I think it could also boost traffic to the page and would help keep it updated as often as possible. --Amulet of nature.pngMakemesmileMud battlestaff.png 23:00, 13 December 2007 (UTC)

I would like to second this request for adding at least some sort of reference to the Market Watch pages. At the moment, they are not well linked with the rest of the wiki content, and I do think that can be improved. Although there is still some content being added and set up, with a general lack of spamming, it would be nice if this main page at least mentioned it somewhere in relation to the rest of the content in this project. --Robert Horning 01:49, 24 December 2007 (UTC)

trivia on main page

we should have the all new Trivia section on the main page so i may be expanded more —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:31, 16 December 2007.

The main page isn't a place to promote edits. If the page has low traffic, there's no reason to expand it. Expert Dragon Archer hat.pngDoomedrusher|Talk||Contributions| 22:34, 16 December 2007 (UTC)
many people like to read trivia about the game and this would help them find it —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:40, 16 December 2007.

There is a search button for people who would like to find it. Also, please remember to sign your comments =) Expert Dragon Archer hat.pngDoomedrusher|Talk||Contributions| 22:41, 16 December 2007 (UTC)


Have we stopped doing the quote of the week thingy, or popular quotes/ cos this one from evil bob is brill!

"Bob: Sorry I am too busy marking my territory. Player: Your territory? This place is ruled by Grand Highmage Gower and his minions. Bob: I think not. They are my minions. And I let them think he is in charge. I’m the real power behind the throne."  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Bob2006ty (talk).

Quote of the week? Wrong wiki. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 00:06, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

News (Dev Diaries, updates etc)

Why don't we have links in them to internal pages? We could easily do it.

I am just Visiting. I like this Idea though.

There should be something like there is on the Runescape Homepage. It should be like LATEST WIKI UPDATES or something.

Top Content

Is there a difference between the "Most popular" and "Most visited" lists in the Top Content part of the wikia? They look about the same. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 23:46, 29 December 2007 (UTC)

Typical player polls

I think that Interest/Typical Player should be moved higher up. It will be more noticable, so more users will see it and vote. I have been on the Wiki for a year now and I found it only a couple days ago. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 02:02, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

Does anyone agree with me? I'd like to change it, but I think we need a vote. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 23:14, 16 January 2008 (UTC)
I don't really care. If it should have a good outcome, I say go right ahead. Dragon medium helm! Whaddaya know?Chiafriend12Better than rune!I have 12 friends. 23:56, 16 January 2008 (UTC)
So... can I change it now? White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 02:38, 19 January 2008 (UTC)
I'd say go for it. Grim reaper hood.png Ben RyfosTalk 02:40, 19 January 2008 (UTC)
Done. Do you think we should rename it? Some users might not understand it (I didn't get it at first). White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 03:15, 19 January 2008 (UTC)
I guess that's good. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 04:04, 19 January 2008 (UTC)
But then, maybe it should be, "Typical Player Polls". White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 04:05, 19 January 2008 (UTC)
Awesome. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 17:42, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

Server Blackout

Its Thursday afternoon and theres a server blackout. Should we add a message about it? 18:57, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

Do server blackouts really deserve messages on the front page? Most of the time they're not for all users, and only for a few minutes. Grim reaper hood.png Ben RyfosTalk 02:40, 19 January 2008 (UTC)
We already have an article on it anyway, First server blackout of 2008. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 02:42, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

I had the same thing happen to me!!! lol! funny! no i didn't I ate your monkey butt's friend!!

Runescape wiki logo?

Why is the logo such terrible quality? I think it needs to be re-designed. Why not use the forum logo instead? 11:56, 25 January 2008 (UTC)

I wouldn't say it's terrible, but I guess we could redesign it. But let's not just copy the forum logo, let's just make a better one. We used to have a good one, you know, all the runes surrounding the RuneScape Wiki title, but then it got changed for some reason. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 12:39, 25 January 2008 (UTC)
We still do, and it has great quality in my opinion. But, are you talking about [[:Image:Wiki wide.png]] having bad quality? That I must agree with. Dragon medium helm! Whaddaya know?Chiafriend12Better than rune!I have 12 friends. 17:47, 25 January 2008 (UTC)
Well, let's change it. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 21:22, 25 January 2008 (UTC)
To clarify, I meant this one [[:Image:Wiki wide.png]], I know its classic but its looks so terrible with the rest of the wiki. Not to mention its quality. And yes Image:Wiki.png would be an excellent choice.
Is a poll needed? I think everyone would agree that Image:Wiki.png is the best. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 17:32, 26 January 2008 (UTC)
Where is the logo you are talking about ? On all pages, the logo I see is already Image:Wiki.png (I use the "classic" theme, I think. Second-abyssal-whip.pngPatheticcockroachGuthan's platebody.png(Talk) 17:38, 26 January 2008 (UTC)
Im not using any themes are anything, I didnt even knew we had a theme selection, nor have I made an account. I just think that this image: [[:Image:Wiki wide.png]] looks terrible and should be replaced ASAP. 20:31, 26 January 2008 (UTC)
So, can I just change it? White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 20:51, 26 January 2008 (UTC)
I think we should have another community decision, like what we did last January. Have everyone submit what they think the title should be, everyone have a month or two to vote, then change. Dragon medium helm! Whaddaya know?Chiafriend12Better than rune!I have 12 friends. 23:00, 26 January 2008 (UTC)
Okay, Support for everything I said before. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 14:53, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

Dark RS Wiki

I don't see why we don't have a link to the Dark RuneScape Wiki anymore. It's still a sister wiki, and just because half of the users went there to learn how to scam doesn't mean that's what the wiki's intensions are. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 22:33, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

There was a community vote on this at RuneScape:Votes for deletion/Dark Runescape Wiki, it was 9-1-1 (support, oppose, neutral) if I recall in favor of removing the links. Skill 22:36, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

It should be void. Having a VfD on deleting the wiki is an invalid request, since it is not up to us. A VfD is also not a thing to request to have another wiki be unassociated with. If you people who voted "support" would actually read the disclaimers on Dark RuneScape Wiki, you would know that the intent is to protect people, not teach people how to scam. Dragon medium helm! Whaddaya know?Chiafriend12Better than rune!I have 12 friends. 21:27, 28 January 2008 (UTC)

Don't worry chia, they didn't think to remove the link from the "Other Gaming Wikis" box, it's still down there =P Grim reaper hood.png Ben RyfosTalk 21:34, 28 January 2008 (UTC)
The "other gaming wikis" link is still kept there because it is another gaming wiki. However, it was decided to no longer have it as a sister wiki. And Chia, the vote shouldn't just be void because it took place at RS:VFD. There just simply wasn't really anywhere else to put it (Which is the wiki's falut, not the nominator). Sysop crown.svgTes FanSysop crown.svg 22:06, 28 January 2008 (UTC)
In the future, such discussions could go at RuneScape:Yew grove (although I'll admit it's not very well used :P). Invalidating a discussion on the basis it was on an incorrect page boils down to RS:NOT#BUREAUCRACY. We don't need to redo it unless there is substantial evidence that the consensus on this issue has changed. Skill 22:14, 28 January 2008 (UTC)
In the future, clarify that the Dark RuneScape Wiki is for stopping scammers, not encouraging them, before a vote. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 22:22, 28 January 2008 (UTC)
The intent was repeated again and again during the vote, but that's not the issue: scammers can and will use it to learn how to scam, and that's why the links were removed. Skill 22:26, 28 January 2008 (UTC)
Fun fact: Most scams and "illegal" content are now extinct, unless of course you take undeniable pleasure in watching graphical glitches. May be coloured blue in the near
Again, this issue is already pretty much resolved, unless someone brings it up again with a better argument that will change the consensus. This isn't the place to revive discussion on this topic, anyhow. Skill 22:50, 28 January 2008 (UTC)

Moved to RuneScape:Yew grove/Archive1#Wiki logo


Maybe this discussion should be moved here, since it isn't really discussing the main page itself? Skill 08:50, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

Sure, go ahead. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 12:46, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

Grand Exchange Common Trade Index shown on Main Page

I think that the GECTI should be shown on the Main Page so that it saves time rather than having to go to the actual page and would be very helpful. I think it would also give the Main Page a more professional look. I will be updating it everyday and I've made a basic design in Photoshop. What does everyone else think??  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by King Dharok9 (talk).

I'd like that, and I think it'd work well, as long as we have backups in case you can't get on the wiki that day or something. Grim reaper hood.png Ben RyfosTalk 18:10, 1 February 2008 (UTC)
I'm in Secondary School so have no problems updating everyday, if I do go on holiday I will say in advance and get someone to temporarily cover for me, and on an another note I have just updated all the prices on the Market Price Indexes. King Dharok9 21:56, 1 February 2008 (UTC)
Very nice. I'd like to see it up and running. Dragon medium helm! Whaddaya know?Chiafriend12Better than rune!I have 12 friends. 23:18, 1 February 2008 (UTC)
Cool, do it! White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 23:45, 1 February 2008 (UTC)
I don't know how you would go about putting that on there you would have to ask someone else to do it. Just ask whoever made the other stuff for the Main Page. King Dharok9 09:24, 2 February 2008 (UTC)
I've been doing a few sandbox tests on this, and think I've got it ready. It'll automatically update off of the existing GEMW pages, so that's not a problem, and it's integrated in the layout nicely. Grim reaper hood.png Ben RyfosTalk 18:31, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

Mmm Current Poll *Cough* *Cough*

Half of the voters probably have never tried World of Warcraft therefore making this poll rather stupid. --Whiplash 00:14, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

Good point, usually the only reason people started playing RS was because they didn't need decent internet connections. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 02:31, 14 February 2008 (UTC)

"World of Warcraft, what is it?" People automaticly choose for RS!, because they know what it is and how it works. Not WoW. What about a poll of your favorite item in RS =)

Main Page

Why was the Main Page title changed to "RuneScape Wiki"? Wouldn't someone be looking for RuneScape:About when searching for that? White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 12:58, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

Why does it name to-do list as our 10,000th article? On Special:Statistics, we currently have 8,453. AriasCombatSwords.pngKnight 23:37, 2 April 2008 (UTC) Is it not up to date? I'm confused.

It *was* our 10,000th article. However, we moved 1,600 Exchange: pages into their own namespace yesterday, so they no longer count towards the number of content pages. I guess we have to break 10,000 again. Skill 23:40, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

Happy Birthday

Happy birthday for the RuneScape wikia and for all the editors and admins!!!

The main page uses the MAINCOMPLETE template, that uses the MAINRAND template, that template uses the RANDOM SKILL template.

At that template, (random skill) should we use clickpics? Buzz (Talk#P ) 11:54, 16 April 2008 (UTC)

As the main page only ever displays four random skill images I'm not sure how beneficial the inclusion of clickpics would be. They are a great idea, but I don't know that they should be used everywhere there is an image. That being said, I'm not sure there is really any benefit for the skill icons on the main page to link to their respective image pages either. I'll leave it up to your judgement.

I think we could do that AFTER there is a hover over image at the clickpic template. So, then you could click on it (links to skill) and with a hover over image! Buzz (Talk#P ) 08:57, 17 April 2008 (UTC)
Why should we wait? White partyhat.png C Teng talk 19:35, 17 April 2008 (UTC)
First of all, I'm pretty sure there won't ever be a hover-over image on Clickpic, and second, does it really matter? Let's just link them to the skills anyways. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 00:37, 23 April 2008 (UTC)


The CTI title is acting all arsish! Can someone please fix it? Ugozima10:25, 23 May 2008 (UTC)

It should be fixed now.--Richard 21:36, 23 May 2008 (UTC)
Nope, it's back again. Ugozima13:40, 24 May 2008 (UTC)
I've fixed it now; this happens because a user enters a value not recognized on the Exchange pages, e.g. changing 3,000 to 3k, which results in the CTI template looking messed up. For example, a user did this, which resulted in the error. It's good to watch changes to the Exchange namespace to correct things like that as soon as possible.--Richard 16:55, 24 May 2008 (UTC)

RuneScape Wiki title

How did you make it so there isn't a title at the top of the page now? Before the Main Page was moved to RuneScape Wiki, it said, Main Page on the top like any other article. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 00:34, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

I believe it's Template:Title. Sysop crown.svgTes FanSysop crown.svg 20:22, 1 May 2008 (UTC)
No, it's not that, it's not on the edit page. Besides, that template wasn't working before the title disappeared. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 21:13, 1 May 2008 (UTC)
The tab at the top doesn't say "article" either. How did it change? White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 16:34, 8 May 2008 (UTC)

The header disappears by some code in [[MediaWiki:Common.js]]. The "article" tab was changed to "page" due to an upgrade or something, though I've changed it back to article.--Richard 02:30, 10 May 2008 (UTC)


Can someone write up for Amaurice as user of the month, I'm not uotm anymore, I shouldn't be on the page, I don't know how to do it, I asked someone who does and he's busy. Seriously his name needs to be on the mainpage as of yesterday (possibly even the day before!) Green partyhat.png Bob2006ty(RUNESTORM333)  talk Green partyhat.png 08:18, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

You can change it at Template:Userofthemonth. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 16:31, 8 May 2008 (UTC)

Thanks, i couldn't see it in the page code. (I wouldn't have of course, which made it so hard to find. Green partyhat.png Bob2006ty(RUNESTORM333)  talk Green partyhat.png 11:34, 15 May 2008 (UTC)


What about a little script on the homepage that displays "today"

Today is 
		var Maanden = new Array("January","February","March","April","May","June","Juli","August","September","Oktober","November","December");
		var Dagen = new Array("Sun.","Mon.","Tue.","Wed.","Thu.","Fri.","Sat.");
		var datum = new Date();
		datum.setFullYear(2008,4,14);document.write(Dagen[datum.getDay()] + " " + datum.getDate() + " " + Maanden[datum.getMonth()] + " " + (datum.getYear()<2000 ? datum.getYear()+1900 : datum.getYear()) );

I am just wondering, was July and October spelled like that on purpose?Dark shark31 19:21, 14 May 2008 (UTC)
The script looks like it was translated quickly, and some stuff was missed. Anyway, the date as in the image doesn't seem to fit in. If you can find a way to make it less.. out of place.. then sure, go for it. Grim reaper hood.png Ben RyfosTalk 23:04, 14 May 2008 (UTC)
You might want to propose this to the Yew Grove first.--Richard 23:15, 14 May 2008 (UTC)
The code was in Dutch language =O soz for the spelling
