Discord is a free text, voice, and video chat medium. The application can be used from within the web browser or downloaded, with the link for both being on the homepage of its website: discordapp.com. It is available for several operating systems, and can be accessed via a web-app on certain browsers, which can be seen in the table below.

Information

The typical discord interface.

The server is open to all, and it can be used to discuss the game, the wiki, or anything else. We're a laid-back community that tries not to take ourselves or anything too seriously, so come hang out with us!

Rules

  1. Discussion of activities that break the Rules of RuneScape/Code of Conduct is not permitted.
  2. Relevant wiki policies apply, such as:
    • Meta:UTP (be nice)
    • Meta:TROLL (don't feed the trolls)
    • Meta:GAME (don't play rules against each other to circumvent the spirit of them)
    • Meta:STATUS (your role or wiki status doesn't make your opinions any more or less valid)
    • Meta:UCS (use common sense)
  3. All players who are using the chat are to be treated fairly and equally and are expected to abide by the chat rules, regardless of their role or status on the wiki.
  4. Profanity is allowed in the chat; however, use of derogatory or discriminatory language and use of profanity in personal attacks targeted at other chat users is not acceptable. Additionally, you may be asked to stop if your use of profanity is excessive.
  5. No spamming or advertising.
  6. Players should keep conversations mature and cool-headed. Please be respectful of others when discussing controversial topics such as politics and religion and remember that the chat is made up of people from a range of backgrounds and cultures.
  7. Please keep discussion on topic for the channel that you are using. There is a list of channels and their usage below.
  8. If another user asks you to stop a discussion – e.g., because it is becoming offensive/inflammatory or making them uncomfortable – then please do so. Players may @ admin(s) or contact an admin via DM to ask them to intervene if they are uncomfortable with a discussion that is taking place in the chat.

Dealing with rule breakers

  • Users who break the rules may be given one or more warnings at the discretion of an admin.
  • Offending users may have their roles removed (if they have any), their ability to use text and/or voice chat in any/all channels removed, or may outright banned from the server temporarily or permanently, at the discretion of the administrators.
  • More serious breaches of the rules or ignoring warnings may result in a user being kicked or banned from the chat.
  • If you believe a user has behaved inappropriately without being punished, contact a clan admin, providing links to or screenshots of incidents if possible.
  • Players who are banned are unable to rejoin the server. See here for a list of users who are currently banned from Discord.
  • If you are currently banned and wish to appeal your ban, please see the instructions here.

Interlanguage

The RuneScape Wiki server is happy to accommodate non-English RuneScape Wikis by providing a #wiki and recent changes channel (and access to easier collaboration/coding help/etc with English RuneScape Wiki editors, if needed). If you are an administrator of another language RuneScape Wiki and want to branch off of this server instead of (or in addition to) creating your own, please contact one of the @rs wiki bureaucrats or @rs wiki admins.

Currently, the Brazilian-Portuguese has done so.

Game versions

While Old School and RuneScape are the current versions of RuneScape available and a wiki is maintained for each, there is also a RuneScape Classic wiki available.

Affiliates

Both the Old School and RuneScape wikis have started programs to affiliate with topical Discord servers in order to improve and update content. Learn more about the affiliates or how to become affiliated on these pages: Old School or RuneScape.
