I can support this. Would be pretty handy. The wiki only provides so much already known info by a majority. The best part of the IM challenge is discovering new ways to train you either never knew or forgot about from years ago. Bouncing ideas off others like this couldn't hurt.

Good luck, champ.


Where does it say you cant make IM threads in the current forums?

Why do we need a special place for them?

I don't know - u brought it up :s



Nope you did:

Not a section that excludes other players... All players should be able to access, post and create threads.

A section to discuss ironman relates topics.


This whole thread is based around the fact this isn't already possible.

@Draco - what the OP is saying is that, should there be an IM section it should be open to all players to post in regardless. IM threads are allowed throughout the forums, but given the differing approaches to gameplay for IM folk it isn't easy to source valuable IM resources on the forums.


I'm willing to bet that with enough time and encouragement, an IM section could become quite a useful asset.


I still fail to see how thi isn't already possible?

If an IM where to make a thread im sure theyd get some helpful advice.

Why does a forum need to be made to hold these threads?

What if they're discussing existing content or asking a suggestion?

Those threads currently have there places so wouldn't make sense to go in this IM forum.

I see no downsides to this being implemented.


Except for the fact that as soon as threads are made within this "forum" if they break a forum rule e.g. being in the wrong forum, they'll be moved.


Which I see happening with a good amount of them so in the end would've wasted jagex's time.

Most thread moves are due to people posting OSRS related threads in RS3 General, because RS3 General is simply labelled "General".

The chance of non-ironman related threads being posted in a forum labelled "Ironman" is as high as an RS3 thread being posted in OSRS General.

This is therefore a non-issue.


It seems you didn't read what I said at all or choose not to acknowledge it.

Just because non-IM might post in this forum doesn't mean what I said isn't a real issue.

Discussions about existing, recent or suggestions all have their places in the forums thus wouldnt make sense in another forum.

I understand that she want a better place for IM to get answers but in reality that'll just lead to spamming as the rules clearly state to post in the correct forum.

@southeaster - No it's not an issue, it would be nice for ironman to have there own place where they can support each other, talk about things, get ideas etc. As it is now any topic to do with ironman in general forum would get lost, you may not realize there are threads out there - having there own specific forum everything is in one place. I think it's a great idea.


If ppl choose not to bump their threads its on them if their ideas get "lost".

You mean, like how you chose not to acknowledge Mej's or Iceberg's replies?


Considering its hard enough atm to reply to normal replies, responding to quoted replies is a no-go.


Southeaster said:

It would be up to Jagex to decide where such threads would go. Personally I think IM suggestions would go in a suggestion forum and not an IM forum. It's more about having a place to get help and engage with fellow IM and provide tips to others, such as guides.


I get that, but rules must be followed and even if something might be helpful doesn't mean it gets a free pass.

^ ya don't need to change any rules.

Non-ironman can still post whatever they like.

But entering the ironman section of the forums should attract more ironman to answer and discuss ironman issues.

Every ironman should know that mining stars is the best thing for them to start - but they don't. When they ask how to make gp I'm sure they get responses like "do hunter", "do slayer"... Worthless answers. And that's just to begin with.


See this is exactly what im talking about.

You just gave out useful IM info w/o needing any special forum.

@ Draco - but how are IM folk going to easily find that piece of info that's been tucked away on page 4 of a thread in W&F? Unless there is a dedicated section, it's harder for IM to find the resources that they're looking for on the forums.


I fail to see how this proves an IM forum should be a thing?

Once again, IM can just as easily make a thread asking for help.

How is not having a special forum going to make it harder to get help?

It's a place they don't have to listen to u and just be like "that's not an ironman anyway. That's not even an ironboy. That's more of f an ironing bored!"


Yet you said it wouldn't be IM only?

Are you not reversing that or?

Also I do have an IM so you cant get rid of me that easily ;)

If a ironman is posting a suggestion or suggesting a improvement to existing content then..

New ideas would be posted in the forum subsection: New game content - Suggestions.

If they are posting a improvement idea for already existing content it'd naturally go to the subsection: Existing game content.


So if they cant post IM suggestions as they belong in the suggestion forums and also cant discuss existing content related to IM, what are they allowed to discuss that isn't covered be the existing forums?

General discussions are also out as theres the general forum for that.

So to make sure we get back on topic, this has yet to be answered:

Sure, they can do that in literally any forum but are you seriously saying it would not be better if that advice/thread was located in a forum subsection dedicated to IM/HCIM accounts?


Pretty much if it means they stay within the forum rules.

I mean just because they are looking for help doesn't mean they get to break them or be above them.

Before I entertain this argument any further I'd like to ask u a question... What would a non-IM want to create a topic about in the IM section that which they can not create elsewhere in the forums?


Uhh, I can literally ask the same thing about the IM acc.

What would an IM acc talk about that cant be done so already in the existing forums?

Almost every thread I could think of could fit into an existing forum.

Never RIP said:


Because they're not IM.

They can create a thread in any other section of the forums. They can even create topics in regards to IM. They can post replies in the IM section but can't create threads in the IM section.


Yet you said this is the place for all types of IM related threads so saying ppl that aren't on their IM acc have to post elsewhere is counterintuitive.

I assume pretty much 100% of IM/IW have an alt/main non IM/IW. I highly doubt there's anyone out there that created an IM/IW account for their first account. So for Draco to say "ya know IM/IW can have a non IM/IW?" Is practically mute because ye, I believe every single IM/IW has a non IM/IW account.


So you're still saying no due to an assumption?

Just saying but what if for w/e reason they don't want to use their IM acc on the forums why must they be unable to create threads?

Also just because they might not have an IM acc doesn't mean they don't know anything about them.
