All threads posted here will be deleted if they're not active for 14 days. Because of this, I'd still like to keep our "Official," off-Runescape website and forums as our primary forum. We'll probably discuss this in the coming days. If you'd like a link to our Official Forums, contact a leader in-game. Thanks!
I want to look at what these forums let us do before we make any final decision on that. It's certainly more convenient to tell them "go to our ingame forums" rather than "go to our clan site", and currently our forums are inactive enough that if we want to transition to here we should do that now. That said, the 14 day limit is a bit of a pain, hopefully Jagex will change that shortly.

I just don't think they feasibly could. It's why there's such a low threshold for saving topics on the regular RS forums, too. About your other comment - what you see is pretty much what you get. We basically have this one forum, we can pin some things (I assume they get deleted if they go inactive as well) and we can delete whatever we don't want... and we can use basic BB codes. Can't link to anything (outside of the RS site), can't post stuff like youtube videos, no polls, and no pictures either. If we were ever to fully transfer away from our original forums... we might as well not even have a forum anymore. The only think we could really do with these would be to post about events (which we can pretty much do in game, except for maybe more details on more complicated events) or store information ([s]I think we can make topics admin only[/s] - nevermind, you can't, and apparently you can't do "strikethrough" either) but even that isn't real useful if we have to post on it every two weeks just to make sure it doesn't get deleted.
I've been doing some thinking, Lak. This forum might actually be better for us to use than the one we have now, which we don't use anyway. I have some ideas regarding our website, though, which I would like to discuss with you when you have time.
