Part of me thinks they were going to add it but decided not to risk disappointing everyone because they knew they couldn't pull it off correctly.

Kinda feel like they added ports instead of the skill. Much easier to make a minigame/activity with boats than an actual skill that would require it.

Did TIF ever have thousands of active users at the same time?


k so you can see the max users at the bottom of the main boards, I was going to check when I saw your post, it was like 4k something maybe 5 years ago (and it might have been more before we switched to IPB). But then I looked, and it's now 12k from like a week ago when the boards were down. Did we get DOSed? wtf

The Sailing joke is still a running gag in-game on OSRS whenever a new reboot starts timing down.

I joined the Reddit cc (HYT chat doesn't exist any more); if you speak to them about the last five years and look at RS3 player numbers, it's little wonder why numbers here have drifted down. While OSRS has been a huge success for Jagex (around 100k a few weeks ago following mobile OSRS release), RS3 only has 20k active weekly players now. The EoC update in late 2012 set RS3 on course for an ultimately terminal decline.

Wikia has also replaced Tip.It and Zybez as the reference for game information. From an ex-staff viewpoint, that's hardly surprising. We would receive literally hundreds of reports every week, and there's only so fast we can process that information (working out what was wrong, deciding between false reports, editing the HTML etc). Wikis are simply a better medium for community-based collaboration.

Yeah, the decline hit forums quite hard as people could just use wiki or clan chats for answers to questions. Or, hell, even video guides. All much easier than posting on a forum.

 

By the time I was an admin on Zybez, we had lost quite a lot of ground and tried to revitalize the boards using competitions, etc. Our main site was desperately out of date because we had no more content team members who were willing to update the site. There was just far too much to update with too few people. I'd assume it was similar here. We were successful briefly with the OSRS Exchange but it didn't last long when Jagex introduced the G.E. Pretty soon our main bread and butter came in from the clan section. Then when that started to decline, the boards became a ghost town and sure enough Curse (our parent company) closed it down because it became too expensive to maintain.

You know they had an actual vote on this, right?

Ah that was a number of years after I stopped playing so I never even saw that post. I'm guessing they decided against it after all. What a great indie company

Anyone have booze you liked overseas you can't get locally? Or maybe it's a me problem considering my province's [bleep]ing liquor monopoly.

Its definitely not a california problem

 

What is a CA beer problem is an over abundance of IPAs

CA beers is spectacular, how dare you criticize it. 

 

But I feel you Observer, I had this crazy good vodka that was made in Washington State and importing it across the country is just not worth it

If you check your baggage, do they still enforce liquor maximums?

Yeah, but I mean it's a wide window.

Last time I went I didn't have checked baggage; just a carry on as I was backpacking.

Should be able to order from overseas without having the price jacked up by 3-4x. Some tax, I get, but that's just ridiculous. I bet they'd make more money off of it if they lowered it because people would actually be willing to pay it. [bleep]ing Ontario.
