Rants return

"Left On 31 march 2009, A newspost comes out by mmg stating that jagex have had some time wondering wether or not they should bring the rant forums back nd on 31 march 2009; It happened. All the threads in there saying that it is terrible having the rants forums back." Beautiful English.

High Level Forums

Hey there, recently there has been the creation of "High Level Forums" which are private. Private forums which are meant for people with 99 in all skills OR for clan leaders of well established clan. Anyway someone could add this to the article? Dr Locust 02:26, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

I have added the High Level and Clan Leaders Forums to the articleSoldier 1033 22:07, 17 October 2008 (UTC)Soldier_1033

Cool! Just 377 levels to go now...

Re: Criticism

Is it possible to get some sources for this criticism, as that'd at least show why it's 'many people' which is a huge qualifier of what might be, or might not be, the case.

A good link for such sources of such discussion would be: http://forum.runescape.com/lang/en/aff/runescape/forums.ws?28,29

That particular forum is a good place where players who use these "Official Forums" discuss their views on it as well as make suggestions for improving it.

It would be nice too see examples, or else a suggestion, on how those things can be done better via the critical review of the service here.

Unfortunately, there are no official news sources for this criticism. Which is why it feels wrong to say 'many people' when we don't have any statistical figures to back that statement up here.

As for those volunteers who moderate the forums greeting players 'with disdain', I doubt Jagex would allow any player to be a moderator should they ever 'disdain' another player in the true sense of the word.

You could highlight that such criticism would be taken very seriously by Jagex, if based in fact, and should be reported via "Comment on our service" link on the front-page of the RuneScape site. If players could provide evidence that any volunteer is doing Jagex and the RuneScape community a disservice it's likely they'd be very interested.

Maybe this article could go some way to identifying the facts behind any of these issues, as well as helping to solve them.

Redirect?

I can't seem to be able to access the forums for some reason, and when clicking the redirect to go to the forums here, it sends you right back to this article. Is my comp just messy, or what? Quest point cape detailTexan H B K Quest point cape detail 10:09, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

I can go on the main RS forums. Maybe your computer is just running a bit slow and the connection is timing out. Cheers, Chicken7 >talk 10:21, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

No, I don't mean the RSB, I mean our wikia forums. Quest point cape detailTexan H B K Quest point cape detail

Oh lol. Hmmmmm. Interesting. I get the same problem. You better tell an administrator and they might be able to help. Thanks, Chicken7 >talk 12:58, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

Adding individual pages for each forum

I was wondering if an individual page should be made for each forum?? I could easily write the page for about 5 of the Forums since i spend more time on the forums then i do in-game??

I just think that currently the big list near the bottom of the page looks weird without being linked to anything Evil yanks 10:40, 15 September 2008 (UTC)

I don't think 1 page for each forum would be very good, it would just make more stub articles. How about a page named "RuneScape Forums/Directory", divided up into sections briefly (1 paragraph or so...) describing each forum - it's purpose, problems, controversies etc. Magic potion (4)CFLM Talk # Sign 10:47, 15 September 2008 (UTC)


That makes more sense. I might try to make that tomorrow. I have never written any large amounts of text before so try is the word Evil yanks 10:57, 15 September 2008 (UTC)

I mean something like this... Magic potion (4)CFLM Talk # Sign 11:12, 15 September 2008 (UTC)

Images from the forums

If no one minds, I'm going to get the individual images that denote each forum (like a D&D Star for the Distractions and Diversions forums, and an egg for the Summoning market one) and upload them. 7kyt1iT.gif --WINE OF GOOD HEALTH (Actually Stinko)

forum spam

i can tell by the background that it's a jmod post so it's not accurate Rollback crownearth(t) 13:47, 1 October 2008 (UTC)

What exactly do you mean by that? Magic potion (4)CFLM Talk # Sign 13:23, 1 October 2008 (UTC)
Shouldn't we use an actual example of forum spam (that was made by an actual player). just a thought Rollback crownearth(t) 13:47, 1 October 2008 (UTC)
So, :File:Forum_Spam.PNG|I'M not an actual player? =P Magic potion (4)CFLM Talk # Sign 13:54, 1 October 2008 (UTC)
If you want a new image, I'll be happy to make a new one, just tell me what to put in it. Magic potion (4)CFLM Talk # Sign 12:54, 2 October 2008 (UTC)
I had appeared golden to me. X=] Rollback crownearth(t) 04:38, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

Private forums?

Can anybody back this up with something released by Jagex which will support what was is in the article? Thanks, Magic potion (4)CFLM Talk # Sign 10:35, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

Yes, I'll link it to the official Jagex sticky.Soldier 1033 15:49, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

Forums and Your Inbox

Under the External Links section at the bottom of the page there is a link to a RuneScape KBase article labeled 'Forums and Your Inbox'. The link doesn't work.

Does anyone know which article this link is referring to, or what the correct URL is?--Soldier 1033 04:32, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

I think that it linked to the KB article on the forums. I will update it to the newer link now. Also i will link it to the KB article on rule 14 - Misuse of forums Evil yanks 09:57, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

RS HD graphics update

When High Definition was released and they redid the front page, the forums graphics also got revamped. Do you think that the graphics update should go under the versions heading, somewhere else or just not go there at all. Also, I have a few images of the actual forums and the inside of a thread from before the update (i don't have one of the homepage though). Should i just remove the names and just put them next to the text or get some current images and compare them?? Evil yanks 09:55, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

Total Revamp of the forums section.

I plan over the next few weeks, maybe months to totally revamp the entire forums section, with some new sections added. I have already added the entire features of the forums section. I will put ideas here so people can say if they think that is pointless or should be put on its own separate. Some of these things

  • Add the RS HD forums graphics update to versions of the forums
  • Expand on the forums directory. Maybe put it on its own page??
  • Once expanded Forums Directory, add uses, advantages and disadvantages for every forum (i am not sure about this)
  • Uses of the forums??
  • Major Events (Not sure about this)
  • Commonly suggested forum ideas(like showing your post count beneath your name or making your my profile page customisable) (not sure about this either)

New images

Hi I got the images for High Levels and Clan Leaders by guessing the URL's.. They were fairly easy to guess and I got them in about 20 tries. Rollback crownLuckytoilet 00:29, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

Could you tell me those urls by any chance?Knd563 04:16, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

I know them :) Melitwin 07:44, 21 March 2009 (UTC) http://www.runescape.com/img/forum/icons/high_level.jpg http://www.runescape.com/img/forum/icons/clan_leader.jpg

New Forums

We need to get a full page of the forums now that there is another sub-forum added.--King x treme 23:22, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

F'mod list

Should we have the image of the f'mod list there or not? It isn't confidential, thus I see absolutely no reason to keep it from the page. --http://img268.imageshack.us/img268/3921/thehimmemote.pngGone. 23:49, 30 March 2009 (UTC)

But you can't normally view it, unless you are a member. Certainly Jagex has some reason behind this? --Samooooo 23:56, 30 March 2009 (UTC)

Ah, but what would that reason be? That is the question. If there's no good reason that anyone can think of, I believe it should stay. --http://img268.imageshack.us/img268/3921/thehimmemote.pngGone. 23:59, 30 March 2009 (UTC)

What is the question?? Jagex has released it to the public for all to see. They obviously don't want it hidden (or if they do they are very bad at hiding it) so all should see it. Unicorn horn dust Evil Yanks talk 03:25, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

Image update

Runescape_Forum.PNG needs an update, the "contact us" picture in it is out of date. --King x treme 21:58, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

Page size / split

This page is rather large and cumbersome to read. Can we think of a way to split up this article for easier viewing? Air rune Tollerach hates SoF Fire rune 02:50, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

How about moving the Forum Directory section to its own page, maybe called "Forum/Directory"? I think that would probably cut down a sixth of the article. CFLM (Talk) 15:08, 18 April 2009 (UTC)
Taking away the forum directory reduced the article to 35KB. Can we cut down anywhere else? CFLM (Talk) 08:58, 20 April 2009 (UTC)
I think the article should not be split up any further. The page size is only slightly over the limit.   az talk   11:50, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

Avatars?

I've seen in the forums, people that have their Player Avatar "angry".Is this a glitch, or something?


I recently added a small section about this look, and why it was caused, perhaps some pics could be taken though. DMalfoy 12:46, June 7, 2010 (UTC)

Criticism

I've removed the criticism section in its entirety for now. It contained absolutely no valid criticism. Part of it was very biased and clearly written by someone with an axe to grind with F-Mods, and the part about Rants wasn't even criticism..it was a history. I'll be back later to take a look and possibly rewrite it, but for now, there's no reason to leave such a blatant example of what we do not write on an encyclopedia on an important article like this one. Andrew talk 22:36, February 7, 2012 (UTC)

I took a look at what you removed. Most of it was forum history and factually accurate. I realise you're an FMod (never one I agree with), but perhaps distance yourself from editing something personal?
  1. REDIRECT User:Cqm/Signature 03:41, February 23, 2012 (UTC)
Umm, okay, I don't see anything about forum moderators except a mention of a few being demodded. So... The information is both accurate and as neutral as can be, and it is not attacking anyone or anything directly. It should stay imo. User:Urbancowgurl777/Signature 03:43, February 23, 2012 (UTC)
I removed the parts about account status for both mods and non-mods btw. Fair enough deleting those parts and stating Jagex guidelines without reference.

Clan Leaders Forum/EoC unlimited access

if you guys want a section for the EoC unlimited access forum or the clan leaders forum, i can grab a screenie for the board index for them.  edit: the EoC unlimited forums are closing down all sub-sections and archiving them, so the GCD will remain open...i can still grab a pic for historical reasons while they are all open.

Posting in Forums

I do not know how to post things in the forum. Could you please help? 98.214.89.143 19:39, September 28, 2013 (UTC)

Help

Whenever I log on to the Runescaep website, and go to the forums, at the top of the page ( just above the title of the thread or the index of threads) I get the message in green: 'Your account is currently not eligible to post on the forums.'  Does anyone know why this is, and how/when I can post.  It may have something to do with the fact that I can't use Free Chat - caht where you say whatever you type, not restricted to quick chat- either, but I recently found out that you have to be a member or have a total skill level of 450 (maybe 350).  I am a member, but even when I wasn't, despite having 1000+ skill level, I couldn't post.  Apparently, everyone can post on the Customer Support forums; well, not everyone...

Please help, 146.90.65.189 20:19, January 8, 2014 (UTC)

Bans and mutes restrict your forum access too. User:Urbancowgurl777/Signature 20:23, January 8, 2014 (UTC)
But I have NO bans nor mutes.  However, when I go to account, click on account settings and then on social networks, it says:  Oops!  Something went wrong.  Please try to login again, or login using a different method.
Error:  players under the age of 13 are not allowed to associate their Jagex accounts with third-party services.
(Error code: 22)
Thanks for your time though, 146.90.65.189 20:39, January 8, 2014 (UTC)
Then I would assume you have to be able to use Free Chat to use the forums. Or maybe it's a glitch since a Free Chat account is sort of "muted". You can contact customer support without the forums through the methods outlined at this link. User:Urbancowgurl777/Signature 20:45, January 8, 2014 (UTC)
