That's why we have a derelict forums with more subforums than forum users. The forum lacks basic features that most forums had over 10 years ago. Jmods can't log into their Jmod accounts outside the Jagex office, so their presence on the forums is basically just a few posts during lunchtime and dedicated community manager mods.

Why twitter/reddit? Because they can actually LOG ON outside the office. Not having to deal with these archaic forums is also a bonus.


You've hit the nail on the head!

The forums are sub-optimal but we do our best to ensure users are up to date with the most important information. You can always find a discussions and posts under 'Recent Game Updates'. Twitter and Reddit are more accessible out of hours which is why you will see more engagement on those platforms, they also have the largest reach. The only way I see that changing is if the GE was removed from both games - which no one wants!

An overhaul is overdue but with mobile on the horizon it's not a priority at this moment in time - I just wanted to let you know that I've seen this and it's on our radar.

I also wanted to say thanks to our dedicated Forum users - you guys rock! :)

Couldn't agree more.

But it's been this way for a while and it's getting worse.

With all due respect, that post is trivial. It is known that since the inception of the GE traffic ceased. Known that JMods cannot access from outside their office, with exception of VPN. So thank you for the reply, showing that you are there, but a simplified: "We are sorry but there is nothing that we can do about this. We would have to rebuild the forums from scratch and we are sorry that we have no time and resources to do so".

+1 on the rant

The only reason to keep the forums is because unlike Reddit and Twitter, your discussion topic can stay active for a long time on the top of the first page. Elsewhere, it can quickly get buried.
