While the newest incarnation of Runescape Wiki seems to be an improvement, the title requires far too much political wrangling for me to worry about it.

I'd like to point out that this user, also known as TheLastWordSword, was denied the title because of profane language, aggressive behavior, as well as a general lack of knowledge about how the wiki works: https://rs.wiki/RuneScape:The_Wikian/TheLastWordSword

Yes, and despite getting the Hunter gear page unlocked by posting a PNG directly to the discussion page, wearing 3 pieces, and 2 in invy, proving that each piece weighed 0.2 Kilos. The page was locked by mere academic wikians who accused authentic players of vandalizing the listed weight of zero. Refuted for being right rather than wrong, the sitch spiraled out of control.

Again, this is deliberately misleading. The Hunter gear articles are not and have never been protected from editing; TheLastWordSword did in fact add his information without trouble; his edits were not changed or reverted by anyone; and no one disagreed with or even responded to his comments on the talk page. I fail to see how "the sitch spiraled out of control".

I completely understand the feelings about the old official wiki and not being rewarded for that. I can't speak on behalf of Jagex, but I will say that I would find it doubtful that they would have logs of old contributors to that site. If they did though, I'm sure they'd/we'd be happy to reward those old contributors.


Thanks for the support, I'd like to see if Jagex feels the same.


Notice how he didnt say that he agreed to giving them the title only a reward.


For the avoidance of doubt, when I refer to rewarding contributors to the old Jagex wiki, I am referring to giving them the Wikian title. As said, that depends on Jagex actually having logs of who have contributed to that site in the past, which I find unlikely but Iím happy to ask about it if they donít stumble across this thread.

It makes no sense to give them the title though as they didnt help out on this wiki or any of the sister wikis.

Plus jagex have seeming made this one the new "official" wiki by partnering with it.

I'd count the then-official wiki as worthy contributions.

How so?

The title only incorporates the current wiki thus the past one holds no ties to it.

Hence why it shouldnt be changed to this just because ppl cbb to get it the way it is.

I don't think you control which wiki it gets incorporated with.

"Overall I fail to see how it's overtly political when anyone can contribute to a non-profit site, unlike former host Fandom/Wikia, to show appreciation to those that a lot of the playerbase utilize outside of social media."

YOU HAVE TO BE VOTED IN BY THE WIKI ADMINS. If they don't give you a pat on the back and a gold star glued to your forehead, you don't get the title, no matter what evidence you might give to them, Jagex, or Guthix himself. Any judgement whatsoever that can be rendered "evidence free" is inherently political.

If they wanted the jagex one, dont you think they wouldve had that talk while making the title idea to begin with?

Only makes sense.


There's literally nothing stopping us, the wiki admins, from changing this.

It's a community run process, not just admins. Please do your research before ranting.
