The RuneScape Wiki is a wiki based entirely on the MMORPG game RuneScape and its many features. There are currently 41,905 articles and 94,123 files on the RuneScape Wiki, with 21,839,728 edits made to 503,448 pages in total. The wiki currently has 350 active users and 40 administrators.
Started on 8 April 2005 by Merovingian, the RuneScape Wiki's goal is to remain a vast, knowledgeable source for all things in RuneScape. As the site is a wiki, anybody can edit it, and all are encouraged to do so.
The RuneScape Wiki aims to be a competitor to all major RuneScape fansites. Guides to new quests or holiday events, for example, can be made in under an hour, far ahead of other fansites. With more contributors, this goal can be easily achieved.

If you speak another language other than English, you're more than welcome to help here, but helping out our sister projects (below) would be as good or even better - they need content more than we do right now.
Contribute to the various active discussions we have. The more opinions from the community we get, the better.
You can also help by doing some onerous cleaning duties - checking recent changes for vandalism, creating wanted pages, ensuring that no pages are orphans, making sure that all pages have categories, and generally reorganising information as required.
