The Wiki YouTube Channel is currently in a beta testing phase. The channel is semi-official. Any contents, comments or other such data made on or by the channel should not be considered the general consensus of the community.

The YouTube Channel can be visited here: http://www.youtube.com/theRSWiki

Status[edit | edit source]

At the current time, theRSWiki YouTube channel is open, maintained but not completely official. As per the result of Forum:Youtube Account?, the account was created and is currently being maintained by Chicken7. There was once another active account, but due to inappropriate comments made by maintainers, was officially closed as discussed at Forum:Abolish TheRuneScapeWikia Youtube channel. The new channel will not freely hand out the details, and the plan is for users to have to request access using an official process, and be accepted by the community.

The Plan[edit | edit source]

The plan will go here when I get time to write it

Videos[edit | edit source]

Below are the ideas of what videos to include on the channel.

  • Official events/Wikifests - Fun to look for your player if you attended, and also shows how great the community is to new players.
  • Quest/Miniquest/Minigame guides - Using both a video and text guide while doing a quest could prove very helpful to viewers. Some things are hard to explain in text so this would help a lot.
  • Official Jagex videos or commercials - Now I wouldn't do this in the trial period, and we would have to be DEAD SURE on what we are allowed to upload under fair use.
  • Location guides - Just maybe a player touring the viewer around a town or area. Could be very interesting, especially for non-members when it is a P2P area.
  • Boss fights - Just showing various tactics/strategies when fighting bosses like in the God Wars dungeon or Kalphite Queen, etc.
  • Training guides - Videos that show various locations and strategies a player can train a certain skill/combat at (suggested by Telos)
  • Guides/advertisements/videos about the Wiki - Videos previewing the helpfulness of the wiki, guide to using various features, etc. NO userpage viewing, or anything personal like that.

Making and submitting videos[edit | edit source]

Videos currently not being accepted. Please contact Chicken7 for more info.

Suggestions[edit | edit source]

This section is for you to make suggestions for the channel or any videos. Feel free to suggest ideas for what videos would be great; there are no limits on what you can suggest!

  • Community Voting on Videos - I don't know if you have thought of this yet but I think it would be a good idea for the wiki community to vote on if the proposed videos should be put in the channel. Depending on quality and professionalism in the video to keep our wiki's standards. -- xScoobsx Talk Contribs 19:13, May 27, 2010 (UTC)
Yup, that's the idea. Not exactly "voting", though, but the usual consensus Wiki discussion, so users can point out flaws in why it should not be upload. During the trial, I'll have to use discretion for uploads, as it isn't official yet. Chicken7 >talk 06:27, June 22, 2010 (UTC)
