What also needs to be done on RS Wikia is it needs to become mobile friendly. My phone can't open the drop boxes and I miss there information dearly! So if you know someone in RS wikia behind the scenes mention it to them.

The old wiki still shows up as first on google. How do we get the new wiki to show up first instead?

Mine automatically opened up, i have wiki on my screen page (phone) and i just clicked on it and it went straight to new site.

Why does this fan site get all the glory and the other fansites that have been around for years, that are safe and full of informative RS stuff don't get any?


I guess because the Wiki is the biggest and most complete one. One of them has to be the biggest...

It's sad they don't support them all, it's like Discord they stickied one, but soon removed it. this type of thing is what this company is about. It's about the richest, it's about the biggest, it's about who's who and so on and this being sticked just shows it.

There were several search engines used in the past, but who uses Bing or Yahoo these days? Once one is bigger and becomes more and more poular, it's very hard for another to catch up.

We are not talking about search engines, we are talking about fan sites, dedicated people that love the game who have spent years looking after and maintaining their site, keeping it safe for us and content available.

So if they all come in here and post a thread, will they get stickied too? I doubt it.

There's stuff on some fan sites that are far superior to runescape.wiki, even some of wiki old Fandom ran site layout and descriptions outway runescape.wiki.

Just because it's bigger, newer, has more fan base shouldn't mean Jagex gives up and does not support those that are dedicated to there game - I find this very sad, the old Jagex wouldn't do this wouldn't prioritize one fansite over another like they have done here, very sad of ScroogeGex, but doesn't surprise me the way the game is heading...

bigger, newer and large number of users? seems pretty fucking logical to me. screw the other fan sites if they can't compete with the wiki.

That's not the point I am making here.

so is the point to just piss and moan about other fan sites you probably don't even use?

If I don't use them I wouldn't be here, I wouldn't speak on their behalf.

My problem is this thread should not be stickied, I had no problems with it being in general where it belongs but stickied nope. This is the new generation ScroogeGex - where Screw anybody who's not prestigious to ScroogeGex. It's all about high status with ScroogeGex too bad about those beneath there raider unless they are screwing over the company then they'd take notice.

Well, if you don't agree with the sticky, then maybe create a thread in Website and Forums about it, and maybe a member of CM will respond, rather than derailing this thread future. Everyone is entitle to their own opinions, so create a thread and raise the issue to Jagex.

Remember when the RS Forumers Discord thread was stickied here and many raised concerns about that? It was then later unsticked and moved.

Never thought of this, thank you :)

The Wiki is a copy of Fandom they work furhter on now and Fandom was abandoned at the switch and is now falling victim to trolls, so I'm sceptical to believe that.

No, I have gone to runescape.wiki and fandom wiki and fandom is much more user-friendly on some aspects that I have visited or googled (very minimum out of the vast information there is.

For example today I googled runescape.wiki/mushroomcluster, runescape wiki took me to the ark and then I had to scroll to find what I needed whereas Fandom took me straight to mushroom cluster.

Not sure what you are talking about.


The "new" wiki doesnt have any ads even if you dont have ad block and the old one does.

I was not too impressed with Fandom wiki a while back, it was taking me to a completely different site - but that has stopped now.

How is the fansite responsible for the way google indexed their pages???

I actually googled runescape.wiki/mushroomcluster and all sorts of information came up, Fandom took you straight to the page needed - this happens time and time again. With runescape.wiki it takes you to the main page or something completely different, when POF came out runescape.wiki never took me straight to the animal I was after, it never took me straight to the page I was after, it still doesn't, I have to got to POF then search for the info I need. It's nothing to do with google, it's how it is set up I am sure - as all other sites with this information goes straight to the source.

instead of complaining about things you don't like about the wiki you should be looking for ways to help improve it

Yes I have by putting my concerns here.

Why do you despise the Wiki? Did anyone there do anything to you?

I don't despise them, I often use them.
