Started in April of 2005 by Merovingian, the RuneScape Wiki's goal is to remain a vast, knowledgeable source for all things in RuneScape. It contains a guide to every quest and treasure trail, and over 28,000 articles about items, locations, monsters and more. This week, the site celebrates its 10-year anniversary!
When the site first opened, it looked something like this, which most current users probably wouldn't even recognize:
Within its first month, it had a grand total of two registered editors attempting to swim through the RuneScape information ocean. Their total of 31 content pages was paired with a single image. With such humble beginnings, it soon began to grow - today, the number of registered users in any given month ranges anywhere from 400 to 500, all visitors and editors helping to maintain and cultivate almost 28,000 content pages paired with almost 49,000 images! Though Jagex ran a wiki of their own for a time, they have since shut it down and now refer users to this still flourishing site.
On behalf of the entire staff at Wikia, join us in extending a hearty congratulations and heart-felt thanks for all the community does for RuneScape fans everywhere.
