What hapened to the original TIF?

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure what you're asking. Are you talking about the phpbb version of the boards, or earlier? Most of the phpbb topics if I recall were migrated when they switched to IPB software. The phpbb topics are there if you dig, for the most part.

The forums I speak of were created by beta players. Most likely, Lightning. Did everyone lose their profiles when they upgraded? Because I had a sizable amount of posts in the early 2k.

As far as I know people had to create a new profile. That's why everyone's join date falls on or after a certain summer - I forget which year exactly it falls on though.

Are you talking about scapeboard? It's been gone since summer 2005

Scapeboard died back in '04, I forget most of the details to what happened, but I loosely remember something like the database and the domain where held hostage by the hosting company, so it was decided to rebuild the forums from scratch which thous began forum.tip.it. It wasn't until fairly recently that the domain scapeboard.com was re-aquired by I think MageUK and pointed back to the Tip.it's forums. The old names and faces you remember though, have been long gone.

Most of the guys from pre-'06 sadly are long gone, and even then there's little pre-08 left too. With reddit and social media being used more for Runescape-related media, most forums lost plenty of members and activity slumped. (That and the huge community split in 2012 over Efficiency blowing out of proportion.)

You say most pre-06 are gone in a thread with 2 (now 3) '04 join date users posting...

And a lurker from the pre-'06 days here =3! Honestly, I think it is those player base that is mostly left. They also knows the most about the game and over the years these people do get more like-minded, I think.
