Sad to see the death of this community

Recommended Posts

I can remember when the tip it forum had hundred of active users and lively discussions.  
 

Suppose it was a slow death over many years as other resources took over.

Agreed! Everytime I return to RS I sneek a peek at the forums but alas, almost no activity. 

 

Anyone else wonder who pays the bills to keep this place up and running? 😛

When the website was down the last few weeks with the “We’re currently experiencing an issue” message, I was afraid that it was going down for good. Glad to see it back up and running.

Its bizarre that this is my first post for 5/6 years and yet I’m still one of the top posters. A lot of fond memories of this place, but I think the era of forums like tipit has now long passed.

I think the forum might be the only thing on tip.it with any redeeming value. The information on the website and all the tools have been surpassed or integrated in rs clients. The community still needs a place to find each other, though, and it's not like rs forums are such a great place 😅 I also miss the tip.it times, some original content to read about your game.

Haha, not that it's used, but it shouldn't down. Agree!

Glad to see some old faces come back from time to time.

I suspect reddit has in part replaced the forum, but reddit does not offer the same sense of community and I feel it is more focus towards current topics and no topics last more than a few days.

I agree. Reddit absolutely replaced traditional forums, but not only for RS, but other games I followed. It is just how things go. I just hope that tipit stays up for years to come.. Even if it is a ghost town

Wasnt a massive user of these forums as a forum but more like as a site for help  - its sad. 

 

Runescapecommunity also died off pretty much. They made a new forum that no 1 really uses anymore. Reddit changed everything. 

 

The hole world changed as a hole. I just played Runescape again for 2 weeks after a 7 year break, players are very anti social and the gameplay pretty much reminds me of playing mobile games, everyone is always in a hurry and nobody stops to talk or chat. 

 

Things change i hope you all are doing well!

I made a tip.it account all the way back in 2006, and ironically this is my first post, so many years later.

I remember logging into tip.it to read skilling and quest guides, and looking at achievement threads that folks posted. The forum, like the official RuneScape forum, might be "dying," but there are plenty of us who have fond memories of this place.

I've started posting a bit recently on Runescape Community forums. Hopefully a few people might see me being active and start posting themselves. The forums do have high guest counts but how many of them are bots I don't know.

I've been searching for the most active RuneScape forums and I decided to end up posting there instead.

I will be sure to stick around here and have a look around. I remember using tipit in my younger days. It may have even been the first help website suggested to me in school. Although I never knew about the forums for some reason, which is a shame.
