Local player discovers it's actually spelled "Ectofuntus"

runescape humor news
Bradley McKinley, 16, was shocked today when he learned that the name of the glowing green power source of Port Phasmatys, best-known as the location of the Ectophial teleport, is actually spelled "E-C-T-O-F-U-N-T-U-S".

"Yeah, I was looking at the world map today and I realized I'd been spelling it wrong for two years," said McKinley. "It's weird, cuz I always thought it was, like, a fungus thingy, right? Cuz fungus thingies are gross and slimy and grow on dead things. So I just assumed it was called the 'Ecto-fungus'. But it turns out there's no 'G' in it at all."

"This is even more surprising than when I learned that 'Karamja' doesn't rhyme with 'Pajama'," he added. "And did you know the 's' in RuneScape is actually supposed to be capitalized? I know, right!"

This report has been brought to you by KLAPS, the Kuradalai Lama Association for Proper Spelling. Kuradalai Lama: She's here to kick ass and free Tibet, and she's all out of Tibet.

Pretty random, but funny nonetheless. I like the Kuradalai Lama reference at the end :thumbsup:
Ectofungus > Ectofuntus. I called it that for years, consciously for the past 15 months or so.
It seems on this computer your side bar is a center bar and I cannot see what I'm typing at the moment lol
Any idea how I can fix this??
I always thought it was Ectofunctus

Same here. Seems like such a weird word now.

Maybe it works with a different skin? Try changing the skin and see what happens.
I'll be honest, when I found out it was "Ectofuntus" I submitted a bug report to Jagex telling them they had the name mis-spelled on the world map.
