Lightning (account number two) is indeed active again. And Moly (account number 9) was active last year (alt account for Gugge), but she's ventured into the real world again. Beyond that I've seen Sir Beachy (number 108) and  Gugge (number 126) in the last year. I've seen Sunjon (413) aswell, but that's a taken over name and not the original.

Hey, another reason to contribute: the moving of discussion topics into their "proper," AKA dead forums and the withering of the discussion being had.
Back after a 5 year TIF hiatus. Please don't mind me too much.

You can blame whatever you like, the fact of the matter is this. I just made account here to post useful info, Useful info attracts users. Create useful info they will come.

current game News is not usually useful, guides and tips are great for people hitting search.

That and sites like this have become slow and lumbering when it comes to operations.

I used to lurk these forums but stopped when it starting getting really toxic - The usual "I hate Jagex" sentiment.  Don't think it helped that a certain element of the Rune Tips staff were up to it too, which gave the green light for a less than desirable atmosphere.  It felt that certain staff got selected on a friends basis who went on to undermine the game rather than encourage a postive gaming community. 

 

It went from being a fun place to bloody awful.  The site and community got a bit of a reputation for hating.  Sad.

If TIF is toxic I'm curious what forum you retreated to instead

I do hope that, that sentiment has changed now. I myself try to be very positive. However, we cannot and shall not peoples opinions regarding the game or the company. It is their right to express it within reasonable boundaries. We hope that we have improved the atmosphere since, at least in your opinion.


Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be?~ Marianne Williamson

Even though this account doesn't show it, I have also used Tip.it since pretty much the beginning and it is a bit sad to see the boards at this state...

However, Off-Topic board still lives and even though we don't get new threads, we have a very warm and familiar group of regulars who we know quite a lot about and who we share everything not related to RS. It is the only reason I browse TIF and have done so for the last.. 3-4 years?
Come check us out! We won't bite (hard).

Right now we have a contest going on about pretty women, everyone's invited to vote.

Yeah OT's been more active than General Discussion thanks to the recent Miss Hottie 2016 Quaterfinals. If you haven't yet voted in the Miss Hottie 2016 Quaterfinals, you should stop what you're doing right now and go vote in the Miss Hottie 2016 Quaterfinals. I'll post a link to the Miss Hottie 2016 Quaterfinals below:

 It felt that certain staff got selected on a friends basis who went on to undermine the game rather than encourage a postive gaming community.

 

They were selected for their community participation, initiative, and maturity. Their personal opinions were their own. Implying that the staff were not only corrupt but actively trying to damage the community is highly insulting to the time they volunteered here.

 

If you're seriously proposing that the moderation staff should've barred people from sharing criticism on a game update, I vehemently disagree and question whether you were actually familiar with tipit at all. For every person who was a habitual whiner there were at least three active tipit users who simply used the boards as a place to talk about the game and its updates pleasantly and with good will.

 

If you never saw those people because the disgust of a troll or two, I am very sorry you missed out on a fun experience.

Yes, the topic about discussing how attractive woman are certainly seems like an enlightened and thought provoking example of a forum I want to participate in.

There's a gun law debate like two threads below it if that's more your thing :v

 

Also yeah, as someone that's been on forums with pretty blatantly corrupt staff, the staff here isn't even remotely corrupt they accept bribes equally from everyone, so it's more of an auction than anything else

We literally did have a staff slave auction back in like 2006. Good times, I won Cdub_Foo as my personal slave for the evening.

Too bad all the pics don't work anymore. He was my kinky BDSM slave for the evening :twisted: One of the other mods had to delete one of the pics because it was too risque IIRC :lol:

If you guys checked just a wee bit or browsed the Today thread, we have topics or discussions regarding pretty much everything that has been actual in the world.

One of the positives of having a community that started out from our love of one game is that we have people of wildly different backgrounds in Off-Topic.

We have a polyamory hunk, a rich Middle-Eastern dude, a few LGBT members, Californian libertarians, Aussies with their thoughts from down under, some underaged kids with their naive worldview, rational Brits, cold-blooded Canadians and some guys from more obscure places.

And that was just a few of the regulars mentioned, we are a wild bunch with differing opinions and argumented and reasonable discussions unlike anything you see on reddit or 4chan or whatnot.
