The Yew Grove is a place where community members can discuss larger changes to the wiki, such as policy proposals or suggestions to substantially redesign high-traffic content pages. As this page is viewed by a large number and variety of editors, you can expect fair and centralised discussions. Broadly construed, if the community would be interested in the topic, start it here. Even if a discussion is taking place elsewhere, it may be appropriate to announce that discussion here as well.

  • RuneScape matters: For discussions on RuneScape itself, use the RuneScape official forums. To discuss changes to an individual article, use its talk page.
  • Admin help: For wiki assistance, opinions, or to make request to the users or administrators of this wiki, leave a note on the user help page or administrator requests page, respectively.
  • Active discussions: For several other types of content discussions, visit RuneScape:Active discussions.
  • Rejected proposals: Check previously rejected proposals before writing a proposal.
  • Closing threads:
    • When a discussion is over, make sure the policy/consensus is put into effect before archiving the discussion.
    • All threads should be closed by adding archive=true to the forumheader template, followed by closure=allow/disallow/withdrawn/no proposal, date=~~~~~, user=USERNAME, and type=type of thread.
    • The subject parameter is used to describe the proposal or subject of the forum, for use in RuneScape:Forum Archives.
    • The notes parameter is optional based on if the closure needs clarifying beyond allow/disallow/etc.
    • Example: {{Forumheader|Yew Grove|subject=Create a template policy|archive=true|closure=allow|date=~~~~~|user=Example|type=type of thread|notes=Policy located at [[RS:TEMPLATES]]}} (see Template:Forumheader for valid values of the 'type' and 'closure' parameters).
    • Semi-protection needs to be applied to all archived discussions.
