I know we had something of one at the dawn of the year, and maybe I'm being a little greedy here, but I would like it very much if we could have another Q&A for things we'd like to know in regards to the Website and Forums. I have quite a few questions and I'm sure many others are itching to ask about certain things. It's rare for the forum community to get the privilege to have a Q&A Session about the website and forums, as so much of Q&A's usually revolve around in game stuff, and I think the community could really seize the opportunity.

Such a Q&A could help the website/forum/CM teams see what the community would like. Most Q&A's tend to happen on Twitch these days, but I think a W&F Q&A would be best suited on the forums. :P Though I wouldn't mind where so long as we could have one.

What are everyone else's thoughts on the idea?

Depends if they are actually going to do anything with the forums. If the answer is just going to be along the lines of 'we are not considering updating the forums at this time' then no, it would just be a waste.


I would hope they'd be willing to bring a writing utensil and some parchment along when they sit down to do the Q&A.

I think if we asked a variety of questions we could get a variety of decent answers. For example questions don't all have to be along the lines of "Any plans of updating this or that" Random Jmod "No plans sorry", which is what I think you're worried about. I would imagine we could see questions about what plans the web and forum team have as a whole, maybe questions about certain functionality features being added, questions about fmods, etc.

Indeed - some openness and willingness to elaborate on our questions would be ideal, and I don't really see it being worthwhile if they wouldn't. As loyal users of their forums and game, I don't see why they have to be secretive or try to keep things from us.

We do know for sure that there will be 1-2 more premier Q&A's. Maybe we could sneak in some W&F questions? :P Just a thought...


Maybe... But that's kind of unfair to those of us who would like to ask questions who AREN'T premier club.


Ask somebody who is to ask on your behalf.


True, but I still don't see the fairness in that. The forums are used by everybody, premier and non premier club alike. It's only fitting a Q&A of this nature be extended to the whole community instead of being limited to just Premier club.

Epi-

You're not the only one to have thought that, as I said on page one I would hope they would make a wishlist of sorts to get an idea of what things we are interested in, even if they would supply a generic response it would be there for them to revisit if they ever do get around to providing us with some attention.

Jim - Thanks.

I'd be happy to partake in this, so I'll bring some attention to it :)

Alas, the more support it gets, the more likely it will happen so keep supporting guys! :)


This has garnered quite a substantial amount of support since page two. So what's the likelihood of it happening?

In addition to the above, I'm sure you guys could sort some questions about the website as a whole, perhaps your plans for certain functionality features, etc.

I assure it wouldn't be a waste of a Q&A. Pretty sure I could come up with at least 20 questions by myself. :P

Haha - they could certainly use some work ;)


You have no idea how long this forum community has waited (you probably do, but I felt like saying that).

It's annoying that the wider player-base has not voted for a forum upgrade because they don't use the forums. There is an active minority of players who do use the forums and they should not just be ignored because they are a minority. So please bring us an update soon, or even better, a whole re-design.

I think that the devs should also consider why less people use the forums these days. I bet it's got something to do with the fact that they're horribly outdated and not very intuitive.


Support. I sound like a broken record so glad someone else said that for me.

To be honest it's no surprise that adv log had priority. The forums shouldn't have even been included on the priority poll in my opinion, it was doomed to be low on the priority list as only a small minority of players that play the game make up the forum community and would like to see them given some attention.

Thanks nonetheless though, it shows you haven't totally forgotten about them as many players fear. Also thanks for responding to my thread, it's always refreshing to the community to know there are jmods who still frequent the forums and respond to player feedback and ideas. It's much appreciated, please do keep it up.

Not a bad idea but I don't see it working. Q&A's take a bit of planning on Jagex's part, for me to just start a thread and expect them to drop everything and join in is a false reality.

I just want to see this handled like any other Q&A, emphasis on I'd like to see this happen, and hopefully soon.

Still think we should do this - so crazy busy atm though :/


Thanks for the update. The fact that you are still willing to do it is refreshing to hear, and as long as I know there is a chance at one coming in the foreseeable future, feel free to take your time.

It would be really enjoyable to have a website/forum Q&A, maybe after the large projects have reached completion?


But even so it is great that players are being kept in the loop with some of the upcoming changes (e.g. forum reskin).



Well for many project we consciously do not reveal many details about them beforehand. We operate a bit differently to the game in that respect. It really comes down to what the project is and requires. We actually launch updates nearly every single day to the website but they are not always obvious and/or public facing :)


Was your recent thread your attempt at this proposed Q&A?

We are just all so frantically busy with our current projects. All four scrum teams have enormous projects on-the-go and we just do not really have the time to sit down and do a Q&A. At RuneFest we're more free of work for the day :)

(it is not that we do not want to)


I won't be at runefest so that's not really an option for me, and I suspect quite a few others. This proposed Q&A doesn't have a deadline as far as I'm concerned, as long as it happens is all I care about, even if it has to hold off until sometime next year I'm all for it. Just as long as you don't forget about this thread till then.
