I know of 3 30+ players. They're all really cool. Honestly, I'm 17 and I've met like 3 or 4 people younger than me that aren't annoying. Most of my friends are in the 17-21 age group.


I piety the fool.

Not everyone here is a depressed english major. Calm yourself


i'd just add to the suicide rate if i was an english major. while i do agree with the main purpose of this topic, i can't avoid attacks on 'your and you're's. much like there, their, and they'res.

They're just being naïve. At least 75% of my friends list is now 18+ and I got several friends who are 30+ and even a friend who is turning 71 soon. I don't really make friends so well with people younger than say.. 16 or so nowadays. There are quite a few cases though of course.

Yes, that sig was annoying.

Similarly, I can't stand when people disregard capitalization.

Just kidding. But seriously, take the grammar fascism elsewhere.

First part of what you said owned him.
Second part I agree with completely. If someone doesn't want to talk perfectly on a post, and it's not a guide or something official, don't nag them for it...

I know quite a few adults in-game, I don't see it as any anomaly.

It's probably just because all their friends are the same age they are, thus whenever they meet someone who is older, they flip out. It's the same reason why people who never saw a skillcape before flip out at the sight of one. It's something new to them.

And with the grammar, if you REALLY want to get picky, you could find a grammar or technical error in every sentence. There's no need to drag out any grammar debate to that point.

I'm too old for Runescape, too. Hehehehe. It makes me laugh sometimes when they put in some kiddy content in the game (wilderness ditch, for example).

@ 19, I have no problem playing Runescape whatsoever. It's highly unlikely that a 8 year old can grind lvl 99 skills or
beat lvl 500+ monsters. I started playing at 13 and I always felt too young to play infact.

I like it when people capitalize sentences, put in commas and periods and spell with like 90%-99% accuracy. (Depends on if they have internet spellcheck, like me :P)

I'm not concerned about some of the finer grammar points, but things like capitalization, periods, commas make sentences much easier to read; you aslo need to mkae sure taht wodrs are splet well enough that people know what word your trying to use. (Those 5 spelling errors were purposeful; most, if not all of you will still understand the word - trying to point out that I'm not spelling, to a certain extent, doesn't matter.)

Er, anyhoo...

Back on topic. Many people in my clan are in my age group, in the 17-19 range and, like me, many are starting post-secondary. My clan leader is a 30 something year old woman (don't actually know her exact age.) But I do know my clan leaders MOTHER also plays RS. ("Wil u b my gf?" "I'm probably old enough to be your grandma.")

Some variation on that happened to her once, although it's just here-say now.

Squab unleashes Megiddo! Completed all quests and hard diaries. 75+ Skiller. (At one point.) 2000+ total. 99 Magic.

The rest of my sig. You know you wanna see it.

I don't get it. If the RuneScape population is growing older, why isn't there a system that allows little censoring? I mean, cussing should be allowed moderately, but advertising Url's not.

My opinion with the censor? It should be removed completely.

Adding a censor to the game just adds on to the childishness of runescape.

There's good reason for certain Url's to be censored. Complete removal of the censor would be silly, because it's so easy to advertise a malicious site which can harm a computer.

Common sense would tell you that you shouldn't just go on random sites.

I believe a lot of the kids would fall for it, but the game's meant for older players right?

Well, most games are aimed towards the 12-16 year old players, and I think even Runescape is too. And I can even see some adults falling for it.

A lot of games have adult players in mind, runescape being the exception is aimed for 12 year olds, which a lot of us started when we were 12-13 and stuck around til were adult players
