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: https://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.

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.
Any form of advertising, whether it be real-life or RuneScape related, is prohibited.
Channels may be renamed, added, or removed at any time. This list is accurate as of 14:48, 13 February 2019 (UTC).
