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!
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.
Channels may be renamed, added, or removed on the fly. These are the 'core' channels and names, check the
#welcome channel for recent updates.
#welcome- Everyone that uses the invitation link above arrives here. Rules and additional global notices are posted here, and only administrators can post.
#general- This channel serves as an open forum for any type of discussion.
#wiki- This channel serves as a hub to discuss changes to the wiki, especially the latest game update and documenting it.
#events- Event-focused chat, whether ad-hoc, organised by the events team, or Jagex-run.
#bots- This channel is the only channel where bots can speak. See below section for more.
#recent-changes- TyBot reports Special:RecentChanges here

etceteria- If the other channels are busy and your group wants a channel to chat without intrusion or interrupting others (e.g. if you're Dungeoneering together or whatever), you can use these extra channels. Additional temporary extra channels are available upon request (ask any administrator).
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.
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
