I put a link to the [[c:he.runescape|Hebrew RuneScape Wiki]] up, but not one article has been made on it, not even a Main Page. The only article is the talk page the community team sent to the creator. It's been up for almost two months; does anyone think it shouldn't be there? White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 16:18, 8 June 2008 (UTC)

There's also this other wiki, [[c:runescapeguilds|RuneScape Guilds and Crafting]]. It was made in September, and there hasn't been one edit on it. I'm not saying we should put it up yet, though. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 19:49, 8 June 2008 (UTC)
I've requested RS Guilds and Crafting to be closed, as all that info is covered here and its pointless to have a wiki on the tiny guilds and 1 of the 24 skills.--Richard 18:46, 9 June 2008 (UTC)
Okay, the creator of the Hebrew wiki hasn't responded to my message. He's probably abandoned Wikia altogether. I'll leave the link to the Hebrew wiki up on External links, but I'll take the one on the maintop down. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 21:54, 9 June 2008 (UTC)


ok, the community-forum link doesn't work neither does the last link on the main page list that starts with skills, they lead to some page describing what a forum is. I can't get on the forums at all what is going on??? Green partyhat.png Bob2006ty(RUNESTORM333)  talk Green partyhat.png 20:10, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

You're right, for some reason it's automatically adding /wiki/ to it, linking to the Forum page. Maybe there's a problem in Wikia. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 20:27, 12 June 2008 (UTC)


Can anyone get onto RuneScape or FunOrb.

Everything is on 0 players! - I'm thinking possible Server Blackout.

I need money

I have decent skills but I don't know what I should do to get money. I can fish swordfish, mine gold, cut willows, have att and def lvl 51 and have 56 str. What should i do that gets me money the fastest? I also have a cooking lvl of 42, 42 magic, and 28 range. Post an answer on the next line.

You're not supposed to post RuneScape-game-related things here. This talk page is just for the Main Page. Use the Forums instead. By the way, you could check our money making guide for that. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 20:18, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

Okay...I'm wiki-stupid and I need some help

I created a page for the new Development Diary update, but I have no idea how to add it to the news on the main page. If someone else would do it, that would be nice. Zeldafanjtl 18:06, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

You can put it on at Template:Updates. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 23:02, 18 June 2008 (UTC)


I put [[no:Hovedside]] at the bottom of the page, but it came out as this:


Why? Shouldn't it link to the Norwegian wiki? For some reason, it doesn't recognize "no:" as another language, and I checked the wiki, see [[w:c:no.runescape]]. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 00:41, 22 June 2008 (UTC)

I've told Wikia about this. I've noticed the same problem on other wikis; to fix this, Wikia just has to activate the interwiki, which gets forgotten sometimes.--Richard 23:05, 22 June 2008 (UTC)
There, it works now, and I've linked to it. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 16:03, 28 June 2008 (UTC)

Main Page tags

I had to revert Sannse's edit to the Main Page because it moved everything over, and did not work at all, if you look at the page history. This is only temporary; can someone figure out how to use the main page tags properly? White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 22:41, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Looks fine to me. What appears wrong for you? What browser and OS and resolution are you using?--Richard 00:48, 3 July 2008 (UTC)
Actually, I think I figured it out. It was probably the poll that was screwing the page up. I've added some code to Common.css that should fix it now.--Richard 00:53, 3 July 2008 (UTC)


No, it still isn't working. Just look at the image! And it's not because of quartz, on Monaco, two advertisements showed up, and the GE watch overlapped the maintop. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 03:03, 3 July 2008 (UTC)
Oh, I see one problem. You've put the poll before the maintop. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 03:05, 3 July 2008 (UTC)
Whoa, what have you guys done now? The maintop is a square in a column! Why not change it back to the first version? It was fine then. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 13:01, 3 July 2008 (UTC)
What have you done to the polls, Richard? Just look at my userpage. They stretch out across the whole page. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 13:54, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

The code I added to MediaWiki:Common.css does that. I had to add that code or else the poll on the Main Page stretches off the screen and makes the Main Page look horrible. You can still adjust the size by doing something like:

<div style="width:300px;">
Who is cooler?

which would pop up as:

Who is cooler?

Column balancing

It's apparent that the way the main page is set up now, the columns are never going to be balanced on all (or even many) resolutions and skins no matter what we move around. I can't really think up a solution to this - does anyone have any ideas? Skill 01:26, 4 July 2008 (UTC)

The old Main Page was a lot better than it is now, even on Monaco. Just look at Quartz. Can't we get rid of the block advertisements, or move them? White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 20:47, 9 July 2008 (UTC)
I'm sorry, the ads are part of the conditions of using Wikia. But we have now removed all ads for logged in users except these two on the main page. So we are doing everything we can to keep ads to a minimum -- sannse<staff /> (talk) 11:52, 10 July 2008 (UTC)


Hi, "Norske" should be "Norsk". No 'e'. Please tell me how I can find it myself for future needs. --    For Camelot!  Zang! talk  My health! 12:39, 22 July 2008 (UTC)

Can't it be both ways? You can change it on the maintop. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 22:38, 22 July 2008 (UTC)
It depends on what you're trying to say: "Norske" means "THE Norwegian", as in "The Norwegian Runescape Wiki". Whereas I think it's trying to say "The RuneScape Wiki in Norwegian". I've just now checked Wikipedia, and it says "Norsk" on it's left-hand menu, so I'm sure that's the standard.    For Camelot!  Zang! talk  My health! 10:32, 23 July 2008 (UTC)


Did the main page just get vandalized? it says "CUT THE ECONOMY" and theres a strange picture covering most of the page. 06:02, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Um....yes....(i never post but i hope im doing this right but yea front page got owned) -- 06:04, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

this is strange and I had no idea how to revert it. says cut the economy {with cut having a slash thru it} several times on the side with, "This page curtosy of Hiwispees, Got Haggar", there is also a thing that links to google... is it template ! perhaps... we need to get this fixed and fast. Swordeath7 06:11, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Right. I'll fix it in a sec. I wonder how it happened... Chicken7 >talk 06:20, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Chicken, after you fix, can you tell us how? I am also at a total loss on this.-- 06:22, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Who can even change the main page? -- 06:23, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Any user with an account more than 4 days old can change it...but since the vandalism is not in the history that I can see, they did it some sneaky evil way.-- 06:26, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

oooo, sooo..... It'll be fixed.......EVENTUALLY?-- 06:31, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

All fixed :D It was done by someone adding stuff to [[Template:Wikia Gaming]]. The template shows up here though. It was very sneaky but I suspected this. I checked but must've missed the template on the Recent changes. Thanks everyone. Chicken7 >talk 06:37, 6 August 2008

Errr, hate to be a spoilsport, but the page is funny looking, that template on the right is kinda smushed over everything.-- 06:40, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

yeah i have a pretty good resolution and its still bunched up on the right. somebody should fix. 07:31, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Can you explain better? I've seen the Main Page on both Firefox 3 and IE7 on a computer with a resolution of 1400x900 and it looks fine.--Richard 16:55, 6 August 2008 (UTC)
The resolution of the monitor I am on at work is 1024x768 and the entire right side is overlapped with the content in the middle. However, all of my resolutions at home work fine. Karlis (talk) (contribs) 17:09, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

1440x900 and the right side is overlapped. I'm using firefox3 btw. 16:15, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

With Firefox 2.0 and 1152 by 864 the columns on the right are "over" the middle column. This is only on my works computer that it is like this. My home comps also use Firefox 2.0 but diff resolutions and have no problem.--Degenret01 08:05, 15 August 2008 (UTC)

  • Sigh* Some immature children editing the pages. I went on the "Quests" page, it was vandalized by the same kid. -an

I HAVE FOUND THE PROBLEM!! (i think...) I have Ad Block Plus on mai FireFox. When i disabled it for this page it worked again. I'm thinking that was the problem all of us had. 06:21, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

Autumn Wikifest

How do people feel about putting the Wikifest timer on the main page? Magic potion (4).pngCFLM Talk # Sign 06:36, 15 September 2008 (UTC)

Is it about this?

Ok. Wait u have a daylight saving on October 5 :P. Australia serv.svgJapol1Australia serv.svg Talk | Sign Here 09:46, 15 September 2008

No. It's visible enough on the sitenotice. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 20:57, 15 September 2008 (UTC)
I really don't care. It might get more people to come, but like C Teng said, it'll come up on the site notice. --Rollback crown.svg Spencer (Talk | Edits | Contribs) 22:33, 15 September 2008 (UTC)
Please don't add the wikifest template to the main page because this is happening. Thanks, Magic potion (4).pngCFLM Talk # Sign 08:35, 17 September 2008 (UTC)
It can be added to the Main Page (pending consensus) correctly by putting it within the columns, not on top of both, resulting in that screenshot above. If it is put in the Main Page, it should be in the left column below the Maintop and maybe condense it a bit.--Richard 16:54, 17 September 2008 (UTC)
Um...Just wanted to say, check out my new and improved sig, Gert My Talk( A quest)( People on my friends list)

New Title

Has anyone thought about a new title like Runeapedia? Or my favourite one : Wikiscape? Pulse003 11:33, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
