Ok.. so... I was thinking that it would be cool if there was some sort of historical timeline of elements like major rs changes, like a thing for all the significant updates and when they happened, possibly with before and after pics, if available or desired, and of course a little commentary that explained each element and why it was significant... it could have stuff like 'rs2 started', rs2 released, <new skill released>, trade limit imposed.. stuff like that... but obviously more... new stories and other noteworthy things.. in some easily browsable timeline format that people could scroll through and learn about rs and tip.it etc. through it.. perhaps being able to say.. see the whole thing at once , with a thing on the side to select a zoom for like <2008 Events> and then like <March> and then it would be zoomed in to a list of events that happened then... or something... it would put the news archives into a more visual format that would be more easily searchable by date than the news archives currently are..
of course, there would need to be someone to make the timeline so that people could add stuff to it and then someone would have to determine what kind of information that should be on it, then people would need to actually go and write up stuff about each element..

and of course that brings up the problem of having to update it as time goes along, which would bring up the problem of how the more recent ideas should be written about
1) should new stuff be postponed a bit and written like the older ones with a more hindsight perspective in mind
2) would the new stuff just be written as it comes along in a sort of general format and then perhaps edited later..?


ideas?

There is one of these timelines of changes:
It's called the News Archive

That's not what they're asking for, though it is a good source of information to create a timeline from.

I actually think it sounds pretty good. With for example, small thumbnails which enlarge when hovered over showing before/after if applicable. However, deciding what was and wasn't a major update may be hard.
