Discord is a free text and voice 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.

To receive an invite to the RuneScape Wiki's discord, simply follow this link: discord.gg/runescapewiki.

InformationEdit

Discord interface

The 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!

RulesEdit

All of the Wiki's rules and all of RuneScape's rules apply here. If you need additional detail, see the clan chat's rules (as very similar media they basically apply fine here too). If you need less detail, see RS:DBAD.

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.

Any form of advertising, whether it be real-life or RuneScape related, is prohibited.

ChannelsEdit

Channels may be renamed, added, or removed at any time. This list is accurate as of 13 May 2018.

  • #welcome - Everyone that uses the invitation link above arrives here. Rules and additional global notices are posted here, and only administrators can post.
General
  • #general - Open forum for any type of discussion.
  • #rs - Open forum for discussion related to RuneScape.
  • #osrs - Open forum for discussion related to Old School RuneScape.
  • #wiki-events - Event-focused chat, organised by the events team.
  • #mobile-hype - Open forum for discussion related to mobile.
Wikis
Projects
Off-topic
  • #⚠️memes_irl - http://niceme.me/
  • #music - Music-related channel used for sharing and discussion of music.
Bots
Voice
  • #voice-txt - Use this channel to post links and/or talk text to the voice channel(s). TTS enabled.
  • general - Like #general but for voice.
  • miscellania and etceteria - If the other channels are busy and your group wants a channel to chat without intrusion or interrupting others (e.g. for group Dungeoneering), you can use these extra channels. Additional temporary extra channels are available upon request (ask any administrator).
  • events - Like #wiki-events but for voice.
  • afk - You are automatically moved here after 15 minutes of inactivity. No one can talk. You can move yourself out when you're active again.

RolesEdit

Much like channels, roles may be renamed on the fly. Currently, they are generally given out ad hoc, so if you feel you need one, talk to one of the @bestcats.

Two-factor authentication can be used on Discord. It is required to be enabled on your account to use most permissions of @bestcats and @dadmins, though it is recommended that everyone enable it.

  • @rs wiki bureaucrats - Have the administrator permission (can manage everything on the server). Claimable by bureaucrats. Can be @-mentioned.
  • @rs wiki admins - Can manage users and channels. Claimable by administrators. Can be @-mentioned.
  • @osrs wiki admins - Can manage the #wiki-osrs channel. Claimable by Old School wiki administrators. Can be @-mentioned.
  • @pt-br wiki admins - Can manage the #wiki-pt-br channel. Claimable by Brazilian-Portuguese wiki administrators. Can be @-mentioned.
  • @rsc wiki admins - Claimable by RuneScape Classic wiki administrators. Can be @-mentioned.
  • @events team - Can manage the #wiki-events channel. Claimable by Events Team members. Can be @-mentioned.
  • @update squids - Users that spend much more time delving in to updates, usually involving extensive testing or the game files/APIs. Can be @-mentioned.
  • @jagex - Verified Jagex moderators. If you are a Jagex moderator and join our server, let an admin know and they can sort out verification.
  • @everyone - All users connected to the server. Can only be @-mentioned by bureaucrats.

BotsEdit

With one exception, the bots can only talk in the #bots channel.

  • @RuneCord#7761 - Provides various RuneScape related functions, like stats and Voice of Seren. Use ~help for info. Run by Witty.
  • @RuneInfo#5879 - Provides various RuneScape related commands. Use !help for info. Run by AoDude.
  • @WikiaLinker#8811 - Link to the wiki with ease using markup. Commands found here. Run by User:ThePsionic.
  • tybot powers the recent changes channels. It is a webhook bot and as such isn't a real user
  • Wowee Bot powers the reddit channel. Also a webhook bot and not a user

InterlanguageEdit

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 and the Old-School RuneScape Wikis have done so.
