Another part of favouritism that the Wiki gets over other fansites is the in-game title - the Wikian given to any of their fansite staff. What about all the other fansites and the hours of work they put in?

i did not know they got an in-game title. that's really biased. they should give titles to those who worked on the official wiki on runescape.com as well.

i agree, clear favoritism to the fansite. they even had an in-game announcement too


What announcements?

Plus if you want a sticky thread for the others, why not make one that gets noticed by jagex?

Instead all you lot do is complain.

a long time ago there was an in-game wide announcement across all worlds of the rs wiki being launched and party at their citadel. i found this not very kind to other fansites who have been around longer and work just as hard to be reliable resources

Considering that was taken down forever ago and probably was more or less the same ppl in some way.

not really, a lot of the people at the wikia one came on the official wiki to say rude things and cause drama. wouldn't make sense it would be the same people

Yeah the owner of the RS Wiki has an in-game item which is a book that can be used on a player granting that player the title. According to the RS Wiki (lol), the owner picks those who have contributed to the site with multiple and credible edits - if I’m remembering the post correctly. I really don’t agree with it at all, but this is sort of going off topic now to what the OP is wanting..

maybe OP should comment on it. I'm not sure where such a thread suggesting this removal would be appropriate.

I know some people who spend literal weeks working on the official wiki, which jagex discontinued the day after mod michelle left jagex. i think it's really unfortunate and impolite that they forgot about these people who worked very hard and instead gave it to the other wiki without even thinking of these other folks who strived to make the official website a reliable source of information (with little support from jagex itself - closing without so much a warning)

Im pretty sure jagex left a warning as they usually do for most things on the site.

In fact i remember such warning existing as i remember reading a newspost saying editing would be closed after x amount of time.

Heres the newpost explaining the closing: Wiki – Editing Closes 27th March

the warning was given after mod michelle departed, not before
