Welcome to RSW!
RSW is a relaxed and friendly social clan for players who use and/or edit the RuneScape Wiki. We are a diverse and friendly group of people who like to chat while playing RuneScape, and we are always looking for new clan members! Our clan is open to all players, including free-to-play and Ironman mode players.
- Fully upgraded Clan Citadel where clan members can work on their skills.
- Weekly raffle for clan members, with bonuses for those who cap at the citadel.
- Access to skilling and resource gathering buffs from clan avatars.
- Community events, hosted by the wiki's Events Team, are open to clan members and non-clan members.
- All clanmates are encouraged participate in clan discussions and are welcome to initiate discussions of changes to clan.
- Our main home world is world 39 (US); alternative home worlds are 49 (Australia), 139 (UK), and 41 (F2P).
Members of the clan are not required to be editors of the wiki but are encouraged to create an account so that they may comment on clan-related discussions that take place on the site. Due to the limitation on the number of players that can be in a clan, we ask that each player has no more than two accounts in RSW at one time. Players are welcome to join the clan chat as a guest while playing on alternate accounts.
Additionally, we will periodically remove inactive clan mates, defined as those who have not gained any experience in the past month, in order to maintain spaces for new clan members. Ironmen, Hardcore Ironmen, and any secondary accounts are subject to the same inactivity conditions as other clan members, and they are also identical in terms of ranking up (i.e., the secondary account can claim the same rank as the primary account.)
Our clan chat is open to guests. Players who may be interested in joining the clan are welcome to visit our chat and find out more about our community. If you want to become a member of RSW, please read the clan information and rules found on this page and then ask in the clan chat for a clanmate to invite you to the clan. Any clan member with the rank of corporal or above is able to invite players to the clan.

- See RS:RAFFLE for information about the citadel raffle.
- See RS:ET for information on the wiki's Events Team and to find out about upcoming events.
- See RS:CC/I to find out about what happens in the event of clan members becoming inactive.
Clan rules and policies are based upon discussions that take place on the wiki; significant changes to the clan rules or processes should be discussed on the Yew Grove.
- Players must follow the rules of RuneScape while using the clan chat. Remember that any RuneScape rule breaking that occurs in the clan chat is reportable and may result in your account being muted or banned.
- Relevant RuneScape Wiki policies apply, such as:
- All players who are using the clan chat are to be treated fairly and equally and are expected to abide by the rules of the clan, regardless of their clan chat rank or status on the wiki.
- No flaming of clan chat members, guests or users on the wiki.
- Profanity is allowed in the clan chat; however, use of derogatory or discriminatory language and use of profanity in personal attacks targeted at other clan members is not acceptable. Additionally, you may be asked to stop if your use of profanity is excessive. Players who do not want to see profanity can turn on the in-game profanity filter.
- No spamming, including overuse of quickchat feature for the purpose of annoying others.
- Players should keep conversations mature and cool-headed. Please be respectful of others when discussing controversial topics such as politics, religion, and morality, and remember that the clan is made up of people from a range of backgrounds and cultures.
- 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 contact a ranked clan chat member via private message to ask them to intervene on their behalf if they are uncomfortable with a discussion that is taking place in the clan chat. Players should be reasonable and not try to end discussion of legitimate topics that they do not like.
- English is the language spoken by the majority of clan members. If a user asks you to stop conversing in another language because it is limiting clan members' ability to join in conversation, please do so. If you have read this far, here's a code phrase if you're asked for one: I like your item: Weird gloop.
- Users who have been blocked from the wiki may still be a member of the clan chat, unless they have been blocked for a violation of UTP.
- If a wiki administrator's or bureaucrat's rights are removed for negative reasons, then their clan chat rank shall also be removed.
- Users are allowed two (2) accounts per person. Ranks can be given to both accounts. Each account is expected to independently meet the clan activity requirements.
- Gosh, you're competent.
Dealing with rule breakers
- Players who break clan rules may be given one or more warnings at the discretion of a ranked clan chat member.
- More serious breaches of the clan rules or ignoring warnings may result in a user being kicked from the clan. If a guest is kicked, they will be unable to rejoin the clan chat for an hour. If a clan member is kicked, they will be removed from the clan and may only become a member of the clan again if they are invited back.
- Persistently disruptive players may be banned from the clan by being placed on the clan’s block list for a definite or indefinite period of time. Players on the block list will be unable to enter the clan chat. See RS:BLOCKED for a list of players who are currently banned from the clan.
If you believe a user has behaved inappropriately without being punished, contact a clan admin to notify them. If no admins are currently available in-game, you can contact one using an alternate method, for example their talk page, the on-site chat or discord, providing screenshots of incidents if possible.
See RS:RANKS for a list of currently ranked users and for a more detailed guide of the permissions/abilities associated with each rank and to find out how to use these abilities.

Clan discussions and requests for clan chat rank
All clan members are welcome to initiate discussions concerning issues with or changes to the running of the clan. These threads should be posted on the wiki’s yew grove, where they take place alongside discussion of other matters relating to the wiki. If you'd like another passphrase: Praise be the gloop!
Clan members may request a clan chat rank by creating a thread on the wiki. Players are encouraged to comment on these requests to discuss the suitability of the candidate. Please see the more specific information which outlines requirements/nomination standards for different types of request:
- Requests for Events Team membership – see RFET.
- Requests for clan chat rank – see RS:RFR. Requests are most commonly made for the clan administrator rank, though requests for other clan ranks, e.g., organiser, may also be made in this section.
- Requests for rights on the wiki – see RS:RFA. Wiki users who are requesting administrator or bureaucrat rights on the wiki should specify if they wish to gain administrator or overseer clan chat ranks during their request.
The shortcut RS:AD can be used to view all discussions currently taking place on the wiki.
