I'd agree the did you know is very weak

 

 

 

Teleports and switches

 

 

 

All teleport spells cast in Bounty Worlds will now take you to Edgeville, and there is a new switch leading to the high-level Wilderness from the ruined building south of the bank in Edgeville.

It's in the actual main front page news of rs only a month ago...

It is VERY hard to come up with things that people here don't know about Runescape :|

I didn't like the first article. It basically was: "price manipulation is bad, Jagex should do something against it." I thought everyone knew and agreed on that already.

When everything's been said and done, more has been said than done.

I always know the did you knows, but at least all previous ones we're some what obscure or ooolllldddddd.

 

 

 

This one is pathetic because it was announced on the rs front page, not even patch notes, a month ago. It'd be like next weeks did you know being

 

"Did you know Faruq in al-kharid sells some useful tools for games?"

Did you know it's very easy to bash the DYK, but way harder to actually make them up? Try it yourself before complaining about them.

I just said it was pathetic to have something announced on the front page a month ago as a did you know.

 

 

 

But tbh I could prob come up with atleast 20 did you knows that are fairly obscure if I sat down and thought about it, but my knowledge of rs is geeky and I know waaay more than I should lol

Well sit down and think about it then PM them to us if you know so many.

 

 

 

Every week people come up and say 'I knew that' but there are a lot of people that read the Tip.It times and there will be SOME people that don't know the DYK.

 

 

 

The almost obsessive knowledge that people have here of Runescape means that it's hard to come up with them because a lot of people know a LOT about Runescape.

 

 

 

Can people discuss the articles please instead of bashing the DYK.

Hey, I didn't know that.

 

 

 

Anyways, I didn't know most of the stuff in the mechscape article, and would like to add that a TIF ninja found that the name "stellar dawn" is TM'd to Jagex, so that may be the name.

Sig by me, in MS paint, but I'm still working on it.

Suggestions appreciated

 

This guide is as concise as a gourmet's handbook with the guidelines of "Pick up fork, stab food, insert into your mouth, then chew".

If you have a better DYK then send it to one of the editorial staff. That tip is more of a helpful reminder to all as it can be very useful and is closer to a teleport than the ardy one is. It may have been kind of weak but I do have a DYK that almost noone would noone but then again it would only benifit a few people. It's up n_odie or mirror to decide whether to use it or not. It's tougher than you way seem to find a good DYK that most people won't know and that will effect most people. So again, please send a member of the editorial staff a PM if you think you have a better DYK.

 

 

 

The first article was good and it put things on the table for people who don't regularly read our threads about the subject.

 

 

 

The 2nd article was very good and it gave an explanation to why the updates have been less than amazing this past year.

 

 

 

Good week guys :thumbup:

I thought the articles were decent as usual, though the first seemed obvious like a couple of other people have said. I thought that the little description on the front page was weak... It was odd and I think that it should probably go back to just 'A new issue.' The MechScape one would have been informative had I not known a lot about MS already.

Today's article is good.

 

 

 

Remember on the RSOF (before GE) they had a rule against price manip? It said in the rules you couldn't say "hey all whip owners, lets not sell unless its 40m!" or whatever. They've kinda gotten lax.

People who don't the the first article continues to fail in merch clans.

 

 

 

I'm open to constructive criticism, but have no idea what this means.

 

 

 

It means that they fail at writing out complete thoughts. I can't figure it out either.

Good job only replying to a thought that wasn't well formed. If you want criticism go to the first page, you'll find plenty there,but instead you decided to mock someone for a mix up,well done.
