How long have these forums existed?

Recommended Posts

I found this amazing forum yesterday, had no idea about its existance. It seems to be way more popular than Runescapes official forum :D

 

I've been on Tip.it (and used its calculators before) but had no idea about the forums :P Now i have a place to be :)

They're originally from either 2002 or 2001 (someone will probably post a web cache of 2001 or something) but were changed in 2004, which is why there are so many summer 2004 join dates and no-one older than 2004.

i used these since april 2001 but they changed alot in early days....i wish there were still exist those backup forums called old.scapeboard that contained alot of legendary posts from 2002-2003 era but i guess Silverion or Lightning have those backups only

 

being able to read that would give alot of rs history details as well how rares market worked then

Lurked since 2002, created my account a few years later. These forums were created by one of the first players of RS iirc.

Yeah, Lightning was the second player ever to create an account, I believe.

 

I personally lurked for around a year before I joined.

Just realised I've been here for so long already. Shame most of the people I knew on Tip It have quit by now :(.


Some people dream of success, while others make it happen.

Just out of curiosity, who actually owns Tip.it now?

Silverion

Silverion

 

I remember player spoofs being named after Tip.It users, e.g. Silverion being Agplus. :D

 

Just thought I'd join the nostalgia. Who is Steffan, by the way?

Wasn't Scapeboard hacked in 2004? Is that part of why the change happened? I remember there being some posts that ...well there was porn all over everything...

THE place for all free players to connect, hang out and talk about how awesome it is to be F2P.

So, Kaida is the real version of every fictional science-badass? That explains a lot, actually...

Lol I like the one about how bones should never be tradeable because buying prayer is just absurd!

That's very nice! But I assume the database is still lost forever? :(

Was probably deleted many years ago now, never to return. Basically it used to be hosted free of charge by another web host, some disagreement happened and we moved, they held onto the domain for over a decade before I grabbed it. :P

 

As far as I know that host held the database and they never handed it over.

'05 isn't bad at all. Most would still consider you a veteran of RS2. :P
