Fan site links

If Jagex has removed links to other fan sites..should we? Scythe Atlandy 19:21, 14 August 2007 (UTC)


Keep links here, Jagex posted their reasons:

Is it possible to get a link on RuneScape.com? No, this will not be possible. Given the number of RuneScape fansites in existence it would be impossible for us to list them all and therefore in the interests of remaining fair and unbiased we will not list any. Please remember that ALL fansites are entirely separate from RuneScape and Jagex and we are NOT responsible for any content which appears on them.

I add a few more and also added Alexa rankings. Chrislee33 21:00, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

Alexa Ranking

Is it better to have a higher number, or lower number? Dragon helmChiafriend12Granite body (old)I have 12 friends. 00:29, 26 August 2007 (UTC)

Lower number is better, it's a ranking, so #1 (yahoo.com) is first with most traffic http://www.alexa.com/ ; wikipedia.org is #9 and wikia.com is 926. Chrislee33 06:23, 26 August 2007 (UTC)
I see. At first I thought the numbers meant how many people went their daily, which didn't up because ALL of wikia would only get 900 some, which sounded far too low. Dragon helmChiafriend12Granite body (old)I have 12 friends. 21:31, 26 August 2007 (UTC)

The result was About 7 to 1 to keep article but remove external links to other fansites which has been done. Chrislee33 19:02, 18 September 2007 (UTC)

  • I don't think that links to fan sites should be removed. In my opinion, fan sites should not be considered "competition." In fact, we should even collaborate with some of them. --Ixfd64 00:58, 26 October 2007 (UTC)
We should, but a lot of editors jump to the conclusion of "they won't/don't link back, so we won't link to them" without trying to contact the other sites. Dragon helmChiafriend12Granite body (old)I have 12 friends. 01:01, 26 October 2007 (UTC)

If I link to runescape.wikia from my fansite RuneScapez, then may I add my fansite to this page? Our site is smaller, and hence, no scamming or rule breaking occurs. RuneScapez 13:58, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

We would have been Platinum if we don't have those ads of other games. --210.184.231.8 13:57, June 14, 2011 (UTC)

As an example, I searched "Nex" on RSW, Sal's, tip.it and RuneHQ. 18 pages on RSW. 8 pages on tip.it, and they don't even have a drop table. 2 pages on RuneHQ. The last and the least...Sal's doesn't even have a page on Nex. When compared to them, calling us Platinum would be an insult. --Void Knight 05:33, December 1, 2011 (UTC)

Take a look at the criteria. Wikia doesn't block gaming adverts, which is a requirement for gold status, and thus for platinum status. KwekkoTalkSummer pie 15:50, January 13, 2012 (UTC)

Only Silver?

How come our status is only silver? this wiki is way better than sals' and tipit, and it's better than runehq for a lot of stuff although runehqs calculators are a bit better then ours.04ismailjj6 (talk) 16:57, April 9, 2013 (UTC)

Please read the discussion directly above your message. Small recharge gem AnselaJonla Slayer-icon 16:58, April 9, 2013 (UTC)
Thanks, but I've never seena ny gaming adverts on wikia? The only place I've even seen adverts is on the main page and that's always something like phones and stuff. 04ismailjj6 (talk) 17:11, April 9, 2013 (UTC)

remove "controversy" section

are you guys that full of yourselves, or what? what Jagex did removing the fansites in 2001 was completely fair, reasonable, and understandable  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 24.144.154.69 (talk) on 19:52, February 8, 2014 (UTC).
