In Topic: What happened to these forums?

Traditional forums are on the decline as whole, though there are still many robust forums out there, but I think with RS the problem is compounded by the fact that RS itself is also on the decline in terms of users and popularity. Most casual players can get by fine with just Reddit and RSwiki. So can experienced players, though they tend to stick for the community.

Agreed, rarely join forums these days, Reddit is just convenient.

 

It's a much smarter way of working, tip.it I've been using before the creation date of this account it actually went down for a couple months before it reopened.

 

Tip.it is a part of my RuneScape identity, but now people would rather watch Netflix, play on their smartphone it's not about strictly sitting down and just dedicating everything to RuneScape.

RuneScape is an afk-game and tool these days for people, I'm sure cookie-clicker games have as many players as RuneScape it's the same accumulation mechanics but social and much more content but it persists.

People will be saying in future what happened to Reddit, what happened to SmartTVs technology moves on.

In Topic: the impact of the game on your life

25 May 2016 - 12:16 PM

Hi Andrew, I quit the game years ago but I don't mind sharing my thoughts.

Positives:
* Made some great friends

* Helped me through my teenage years and into my early adult life

* Gave my life order and structure

* Helped me plan my goals, and money handling skills for life such as saving for items

* Made me a better thinker and analyst

* Helped me better socially, developed a sense of humour, trusting relationships and found myself as a person as a result of the game

 

Negatives:
* Got in the way of my studies in a lot of cases

* Hindered my real-world development

* Always ended up playing more then I should have allocated to the game

* Placed it over more-important real life tasks

 

I'd recommend supplementing your study with this Ted-Talks:

There's tangible benefits with gaming and he talks about Generation-G, I do think RuneScape made me better as a person.

I do think there's a correlation as he speaks about in that video too. there's a lot I could write here for your study about how I maybe evolved over the years but then you have quantitative research and not qualitative and I'm not sure which approach you are condoning in your study.

Best of luck!

I think Reddit is more accessible as some have said.

 

Sadly as new players come to RuneScape they'll use Reddit or RSW as wikipedia and reddit are two universal sites that everybody generally uses.

Just as people would rather tweet about an update than discuss it on a forum at times, social media has changed completely.

It's sad but it's just how it is.
