Something about posting in this thread awakens the porn bot posters. Weirdest thing.

Hello from an old member who doesn't really do anything much with RuneScape these days.

 

Its really sad the forums are dying, but like many said - its just what happens and how the community changes. Regardless, I credit a lot to TIF. It sounds bullshitty, but getting to work and play alongside people to build the community through general means of just playing the game, organising events with TET or doing crew work, it gave me a lot skill-wise in order to deal with people as someone who considers themselves an introvert. It sparked the interest to get involved with tech as a career as a programmer, doubt it would of turned out the same without the influence the game and this community had on me.

 

Long live the memories!

Nice to see you again! 

 

Yes, it's definitely been quite the experience.

(I definitely remember the crate.)

I must have missed most of the drama from 2 years ago, so I was reading it now, and thought "oh great a nice opportunity to make a joke post about how I'm corrupt and caused the forums to die" only to keep reading and see that I had already made that post two years ago

people change with time, but I guess I haven't lol

I still don't see how wikis and site like reddit serve as a replacement for message boards.

 

I mean it's nearly impossible to make long detailed posts on sites like that and being able to navigate those posts easily. So how can that replace message boards?

 

I can tell you for a fact that I find it hard to find replies on Facebook statuses, not to mention it's uncomfortable.

 

On message boards it's not. So the fact that the site is incredibly inactive now is something I had a hard time believing when I first discovered this site's inactivity and guess what? I still have an extremely hard time believing that.

 

I mean I can totally buy the MAIN site being inactive, considering that information is updated daily on a wiki, but the message board, I don't.

Reddit has started to grow on me lately. It's a shame really.

Reddit is a lot more fast paced, ephemeral (most threads basically die after a few days, and are lost by the 1000 thread limit), and has strong elements of 'popularity contest', and the large number of people present in more popular subs prevent the formation of a close knit community. It certainly has disadvantages when compared to traditional forums.

Wow I came to check this site out after starting over on OSRS last weekend after like a 5 year break. Thought it would have slowed down but I'm surprised to see it this dead.

Mobile got me back, but into OSRS. Wish I was in the RS3 mobile beta.
 
I saw things like the signatures and GE interface broken, and I shot a flair over to Arceus. MageUK's pending.me.uk is broken, too. The protector in me wants to do break-fix.
 
I think I'll begin poking people until they 1) respond, 2) tell me to go away, 3) make me go away

Oh hai.

 

In a strange turn of events, I came back to Tip.It for the bestiary which I worked on as a Crewbie over ten years ago. But to be honest, Leik is bang on the money--the medium of forums has been largely replaced by Reddit, fandom wikis and Facebook groups.

 

That being said, the player numbers for OSRS on mobile are very impressive.

I'm enjoying OsRS mobile, but the worlds all feel empty to me, even in the cow fields. Maybe nostalgia has rose tinted glasses but I remember struggling to chat with people because there was so much text noise in some areas. That is just not the case on mobile.

Also the chat interface is difficult to use on mobile, so there's that
