April fools pranks/jokes are supposed to be clever and funny, they shouldn't be annoying and make the site less effective. - Teltic

Can the background/behind-text color be changed back to solid white? It automatically makes your eyes strain to read.

Yeah, there should be an option or something? The Black and red... IT BURNS!!!!!!!!!!!!! Stats Overall icon highscores.pngPlayerFroobTalk 04:42, April 2, 2010 (UTC)

well try dark runescape wiki is basically the same but darker all the same stufff so try dark runescape wikiThe Blogger 19:57, June 4, 2010 (UTC) 19:27, June 4, 2010 (UTC)

It's not all the same stuff, this wiki has better material, the dark colours are distracting, and even if you like them, you can easily change your own skin in Special:MyPage/monaco.css. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 19:55, June 4, 2010 (UTC)
ok it was my first post im not perfect!!
Ha just saying. I hate dark wiki themes; they're impossible to read. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 20:04, June 4, 2010 (UTC)

ummm was rs wiki hacked or is that on purpose...its not april fools day everywhere yet lol Wolverine9988 02:04, April 1, 2010 (UTC)

It doesn't matter what it is everywhere, because this wiki uses GMT time. HaloTalk 02:05, April 1, 2010 (UTC)

If you don't like it, just disable the custom April Fools skin. That's what I did. --LiquidTalk 02:06, April 1, 2010 (UTC)

LMAO so funny. I hate when he trips over the server cord :S.

Thats so retarded! what's the darn point?

How do u disable or change the skin thingy 222 talk 05:14, April 2, 2010 (UTC) If you still are seeing the Andrew Gower Wiki try this:

  • Internet Explorer: hold down the Ctrl key and click the Refresh or Reload button, or press Ctrl+F5.
  • Firefox: hold down the Shift key while clicking Reload; alternatively press Ctrl+F5 or Ctrl-Shift-R.
  • Opera users have to clear their caches through Tools→Preferences
  • Konqueror and Safari users can just click the Reload button.
  • Chrome: press Ctrl+F5 or Shift+F5

Otherwise you can go to Special:Preferences, and change the skin there. HaloTalk 18:21, April 2, 2010 (UTC)

Wiki Pic change?

is it just me, or did someone change the wiki's thumbnail to a picture of andrew gower with retardedly large eyes?

also, in relation to read this now section 47 i think, yes, there are angry mastodons on this wiki. its called a TzTok_Jad and it wil 1 hit you before you pop into existence. Mwuh, Mwuhahee  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Species-8472 (talk).

HTML tidying

Someone should use the code <body bgcolor="red"> on the main page so that it looks better.

Constituion not listed alphabetically in the sidebar

In the sidebar under Skills then Non-member skills, constituion is listed where hitpoints used to be, but it should be moved between Attack and Cooking. --Prayer-icon.pngTyiloTalkQuest.png 21:41, April 8, 2010 (UTC)

Could an admin arrange the 3 column list in the contents section in alphabetical order? (the 3rd column is kinda messed up) Armeng90 02:04, April 11, 2010 (UTC)

You could edit RuneScape:Main Page. ShinyUnown T | C | E 02:09, April 11, 2010 (UTC)
I edited it, thanks. Armeng90 02:20, April 11, 2010 (UTC)
Yes check.svgDone - Thanks, it has been corrected. Chicken7 >talk 02:24, April 11, 2010 (UTC)

Give users the option to personally edit sections on their Main Page

I believe that it may be possible, using {{USERNAME}}, to allow users to edit their Main Page. If a user wanted to edit one of their Main Page sections, they would edit a specific userpage of theirs (i.e. User:Someone/Mainpage-contents-mod). The Main Page would attempt to call up this page whether or not it exists. If it does, it takes the data and uses it to modify the section.

I know that I could code it, but I'm not sure if {{USERNAME}} could be used in this way because the JavaScript is loaded after the wikicode. If it does, however, I would like to modify RS:MP to add this feature, and I would like to add a guide to use it.

Thank you for listening to the worst best thing since sliced bread. ShinyUnown T | C | E 19:59, April 11, 2010 (UTC)

Couldn't find the proper place for this...

...but I love the RuneScape Wiki! I've been using it since '08 when I first heard of it. It's helped me with everything RuneScape related that I needed to know. If something didn't help correctly, I'd edit it for the better. All my edits have been in good faith, so if I goofed, don't hold it against me negatively, please xD
Anyway, I just wanted to say that all the editors here are awesome. :D Fishing Raian the Fallen Talk Runecrafting 07:08, April 14, 2010 (UTC)

Language flags under header

I was thinking that instead of that column in the sidebar, we could have flags for the different languages, taken from the RuneScape website. It would look something like this:

Bad idea, as there are 12 language interwiki links on the page, plus would be impossible, or at least ridiculously difficult to make it auto-update. RPBHBBucket detail.pngrwojy 02:05, April 24, 2010 (UTC)
12 language interwiki links on what page? White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 02:09, April 24, 2010 (UTC)
On the mainpage, the links there decide what links are shown in the sidebar. Currently [[zh:]] [[zh-tw:]] [[bg:]] [[af:]] [[cs:]] [[da:]] [[de:]] [[es:]] [[fr:]] [[lt:]] [[nl:]] [[no:]] [[pl:]] [[pt:]] [[ro:]] [[sv:]] [[sk:]] [[fi:]] [[tl:]] [[tr:]] QDYBucket detail.pngrwojy 02:12, April 24, 2010 (UTC)
Where would it be placed?? Still on the sidebar or somewhere on the front page?? You didn't say. Unicorn horn dust.png Evil Yanks talk 02:11, April 24, 2010 (UTC)
Front page. First of all, it isn't that hard to auto-update, if we decide to include every single wiki. Second, here, I've only included wikis that have RuneScape communities in the forums; we can have a "More" link. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 02:15, April 24, 2010 (UTC)
The 'include all wikis' is a bad idea, as most of them are junk/spam/empty. Also, the languages sidebar can also appear on any page with an interwiki link, and the links available will be different than the main page. YWRIBucket detail.pngrwojy 02:23, April 24, 2010 (UTC)
Okay, so, say we only include the above wikis. I don't see a problem with having links to them from the main page; after all, Wikipedia does it. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 02:33, April 24, 2010 (UTC)
Also, if we want to include wikis that don't have official RuneScape communities (Taiwanese Mandarin, for example), we can simply make a flag. Added a Taiwanese flag easily, above. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 02:50, April 24, 2010 (UTC)
Anyway this is the wrong place to discuss this, removing a box and adding flags should be brought to the yg. VJVBucket detail.pngrwojy 02:53, April 24, 2010 (UTC)
Okay, I'll add a discussion in the morning; it's getting late here. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 03:01, April 24, 2010 (UTC)


The disclaimer down the bottom of the front page no longer applies as we are now officially affiliated with Jagex. I have no idea how it should be changed. Unicorn horn dust.png Evil Yanks talk 04:56, April 24, 2010 (UTC)

Actually, looking at the official guidelines, only Gold/Platinum fansites are official. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 11:49, April 24, 2010 (UTC)

Memory issues using Chrome?

Hello, this is Fruit.Smoothie here, I just wanted to bring this up; I'm not sure if this affects only Google Chrome, but lately while using it, every time I try to access the main page the page would freeze and Chrome would crash either due to memory usage errors or scripts not being handled/loaded correctly. If a programmer or coder could somehow reproduce the problem using Chrome, and fix it if possible, then that would be great, as I'm not sure if it's just me or affecting more users too.
Thanks! Fruit.Smoothie 05:13, May 1, 2010 (UTC)
I don't know, sorry. I use Chrome, and the wiki works fine for me. I'm not a programmer or coder, though. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 12:25, May 1, 2010 (UTC)

Front page ads...

I'm sorry but I dont know where else to put this. On the front page, I saw two RWT ads, And when I came back several times, They displayed again... I did'nt get a picture because I was unfamiliar with how to upload images on this wiki (I thought you could do it by URL location). Is this a big concern, Or does this happen a lot?

err... I don't know if this is the same for anyone else, but the entire wiki is completely f*ck'd up. Everything is in the Comic Sans MS font, everything is either on top of another thing or shifted way over to the side (e.g. log in interface was all the way to the left and off the page), the links don't have their "special images."

I've been noticing alot of scam/dishonest runescape advertisements on the mainpage and other pages. Is there any way we could get rid of these?

P.S. I know they're scams because they advertise things like "free party hats" or "100 mil free" Things like that.

Jango122333 17:42, September 20, 2010 (UTC)

Also, I've been noticing lots of ads with sound. Really, no. They're really annoying. I'm listening to some cool runescape song, or listening for the sound of a tree falling, and suddenly I hear a vacuum cleaner or something. I really doubt that there were vacuum cleaners in medieval times, but sometimes I can't even see the ad, just hear the sound of it, which is really REALLY aggrivating. Plus, as a little side not, I noticed some video ads (which really slow down my computer) with even another ad at the beginning of it... Doom monger6 14:36, October 14, 2010 (UTC)

Hi! Well, I'm quite sure Wikia's doing it's best to filter out these ads. Though that isn't easy. Could you please report any bad ads to Wikia? Please see for [[Help:Bad advertisements]] on doing this. Mark (talk) 17:44, September 20, 2010 (UTC)
All of the advertisements are bad advertisements because there are so many of them playing at once. One video wouldn't bother most people. 2 videos playing whilst logged into RS tends to slow things down on older machines (like mine). 4 videos playing with sound that overlaps and now it's counterproductive. I imagine many people would be driven away by having to mute 5 different videos every time they click to a new page. --Hairpiece
I can see how that could be really annoying. I highly recommend creating an account - it makes almost all of the advertisements disappear. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 21:15, October 14, 2010 (UTC)

The new skin was created by the company that owns this site, Wikia. Unfortunately, those of us working on the wiki itself hate it as well, but we are powerless to remove it.

New logo PLUX!!!!

I'm sorry, but there were some great submissions of the competition in Summer. I don't know why you kept this 2004 styled one, even for the new layout, and even kept it to the extent to modify its size.

Please, please, make a nicer logo and favicon. It really brings the wiki down. Sorry, but I'm a big graphics enthusiast.

I came up with a few quick, simple ideas. I hope you take this message into account.

Main logo concept (I realise it seems a bit 'dirty', I'll fix it later :p):


Favicon concept (I know the 'R' is pixelated, but when a proper 16x16/32x32 version is created there shouldn't be a problem):


I like the concepts! I'd keep the runes around the logo, but these are pretty good. Possibilities! --Law rune.png Mac5130 Fire rune.png 20:53, January 14, 2011 (UTC)

Heart icon still links to Hitpoints

When the heart icon for Constitution shows up on the top of the main page, it links to the Hitpoints article. This redirects to Constitution automatically, but may look better just linking to Constitution.ledzepmtg in most reference frames 04:49, November 2, 2010 (UTC)

Where to start... First, we would revert if Wikia let us. For the whole story, see these links (in chronological order):

Omg is the background of the main page world of warcraft? did the editors put it there since runescape is becoming like WoW. Open for discussion.

Ps. It's kind of hard to get help here, when no one's answering the (kazillion) questions I've asked in several talk pages.

The poll - Who created the poll? The voting options are vague and misinterpreting. I don't like it, and I don't like it but its better than the old one are essentially the same thing, as well as its good and could be better, and I don't like but its better than the old one are also essentially the same thing. I don't know who writes your polls but they could definitely use some work, there is a lesser desire to vote, when half the voting options are essentially the same thing. A yes, no, a medium, and an I don't really care how it looks, are the only options really needed for a question like that.

Agreed. I'm gonna be bold and change it. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 20:23, January 4, 2011 (UTC)

Automatic Purging of this Page

How is it that this page purges upon refresh? Almost every time the refresh button is pressed, the two {{Random skill1}} and {{Random skill2}} icons are updated. Can this be explained?Joel amos Talk Contribs 01:19, January 18, 2011 (UTC)

That is likely a function of the templates themselves, which undoubtedly use the <choose> function. It will randomly display one of several options which you specify. --Andorin (Talk) (Contribs) 01:21, January 18, 2011 (UTC)
Yes, but even so, this page purges faster than normal. I tried to copy this method for a wiki I'm working on (, but it takes a very long time for the images to refresh. What's the difference?--Joel amos Talk Contribs 01:46, January 18, 2011 (UTC)

New Wiki Theme

At first I didn't like the new format of this wiki, but as time goes by I actually don't mine it anymore. Sure, the old one was more efficient, but think about it, now we got a cool map to see where we are( or at least around 1/5 of a map)....but still I'm starting to like the new themeAttack cape.pngTra93dyTextftwHSAttack hood.pngTra93dy 06:45, January 29, 2011 (UTC)

Why are you still on the Wikia domain and using the atrocious layout they put in place a while back? Each page has a ~200px wide padding with no content. Way to not notice terrible design. 21:56, April 13, 2011 (UTC)

Dear Rs wikia team

I know most of you work very hard both here and in the game, and for that I want to thank you all. There is however, one thing which really bugged me when I surfed to the wikia homepage this morning: the advertisement.

I understand this is needed to keep the servers online etc, but don't you feel it's a bit hypocritical that on this wiki which urges honest play and commitment, there is an add to a site where you cann literally BUY an account, items and anything you want? I feel this takes away a large portion of the credibility of the wiki, and i hope some attempt will be made to change this into an add of a different nature (for a different mmorpg, for anything actually but a site which supports and supplies RWT)

Sincerely yours

Anno Nimus.

Rest assured, we feel the same way about the advertisements that are displayed on this site. However, we have no control over what advertisements are let through and which aren't. That is all controlled by Wikia, the site that hosts the Rs wiki. You can contact wikia about any bad advertisements via Special:Contact, and that's about it. - [Pharos] 11:16, May 28, 2011 (UTC)
Pharos you bet me to that. Yea basically we don't control the ad's but the wikia controllers do. Twigy (Talk) 1HLTxg4.png 11:17, May 28, 2011 (UTC)
Also there's nothing stopping you getting Chrome, Firefox or Opera and installing the Adblock extension for each (NoAds for Opera), and you'll never see any ads again. Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 15:42, May 28, 2011 (UTC)
I agree that ads can be annoying, but considering rswiki is so awsome idc. One thing bugged me though. An ad for buying runescape gold (for real cash...). Seems a bit wierd for a neutral help-site ;)

The adds which are presented on the wiki within its multiple pages makes firefox crash every time I open a topic that contains them. It is a problem.

We can't really control the adverts (if we could, they would be all gone Wink). Go to for some info on reporting ads that are bad in some way. Sorry about all this. Frown Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 07:48, July 29, 2011 (UTC)

Urgent: Non-closed tag

Looks like there's an unclosed bold tag somewhere in the side column, turning all text bold, but I couldn't find where it was... Should be fixed if located ASAP, though, as it will format and can potentially break all other content on the page. Hofmic Talk 02:48, August 11, 2011 (UTC)

I just had a look at this, and when you move featured user to the right column it goes down to about the same point that the featured user template currently goes to in the left column. Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 09:24, August 20, 2011 (UTC)
Also, the paragraph about the user would get extremely squished, brings back memories of Oasis *shudder* 222 talk 09:39, August 20, 2011 (UTC)
Actually, it doesn't look too bad when the poll results are hidden (which it does by default), and on this day is at the longer end today, but it probably isn't the best solution, particularly since both sides can vary in length depending on content. Didn't think the text looked squished at all though. It might be worth taking the hide option off of the poll results so that it will at least reduce the chasm of space below. Can't see any disadvantage in that. Really, though, We're in need of a new thing to put in the void left by the wikipost. --Henneyj 14:46, August 20, 2011 (UTC)
See Forum:Community box Wink 222 talk 02:29, August 21, 2011 (UTC)
Awesome. I like how you back-dated it to make it look like it was there before I posted, when in fact I had checked and it definitely wasn't. --Henneyj 19:24, August 21, 2011 (UTC)
P.s/ I still think if that passes poll results should be taken off hidden. --Henneyj 19:36, August 21, 2011 (UTC)
Nevermind. Community box has done good enough job, since its been put at the bottom that wouldn't help much. There'll still be a gap from time to time but since the length of both sides is variable that's pretty much unavoidable. --Henneyj 23:40, August 25, 2011 (UTC)

this wiki needs some more excitement. we could like just put some more stuff for users to do in it. i am a user/editor, and i get bored a lot on this wiki. I think there should be more for us users to do.

Every time I visit a new page I'm getting a pop-up advertisement that comes from the bottom left corner... they're really annoying, can't they be removed? Sorry, I don't know where to put this stuff, so I just put it here :S
