I remember starting as a noob around Christmas 2001, because I had a party hat (blue, if I remember correctly) and sold it few months later. I've been playing since then (sometimes very actively, sometimes I wasn't logged in for months).

 

I'll always remember learning how to do things from many helpful people out there (namely Daviso - if you're still somewhere out there, I salute you!) and then passing this knowledge on, even though I wasn't (and still I am not) a hardcore skiller.

 

No maps, awful graphics, a bedroll in case you couldn't find a bed nearby... good old times :D

In game since 2001...

It's a shame we can't see when we created our accounts.

 

Remind me of this very old message from jagex, by the time when we can still ask mod questions and get something auto-generated back.

Fantastic - two completely non-topical auto generated replies from Jagex.

 

On the subject of finding out account creation date: At one point in time, I think just after the release of p2p (so around March-April 2002) many members were successful in sending a request to customer support in asking things like account creation date and time played. Jagex stopped responding to these after a while because they have limited support staff and the requests were taking support time away from legitimate issues.

 

The release of Adventurer's Logs clarified the time played issue. I'm hoping in due time Jagex will be able to release our account creation dates via something like the Adventurer's Log, assuming they still have such data in their database. Remember RS in 2001 was basically created in a basement (so to speak, essentially not created in a development studio with ample resources dedicated to data management and database creation), so they might not be able to pin down exactly in 2001 when players' accounts were created.

I remember having played for a while when they put out the beta, but I don't remember exact times which is really sad. Really more interested in knowing when I started than actually playing anymore.

Mid to late 2001 here, character name was Mdk Badass - censors didnt catch it :D

 

 

Any other old players that barely play get a sick feeling in their stomach knowing how much Santas / Masks / Phats are compared to then?

 

Full mask set was 1.1m - 1.3m. Spent a whole week saving up for them, and then another 2 weeks for a green phat. Heck, I even got 2 santas free at one point.

 

 

I've got none of the above now, and kicking myself for not holding onto them at the time.

 

 

 

(This also applies to ranger boots too I suppose....used to be 600k)
