Hi, all; quick suggestion here, pending my completion of this gloriously awkward introductory sentence.

Why is it that the Drop Rates page can't be accessed from the RuneScape home page? A link under the Game Guide section would be a real timesaver. That article is absolutely filled with interesting and useful information, and since it was published, I've found no easy way to access it at all, apart from the original link on the related Forum and Reddit threads. A clear(er) link would be a really nice change.

This might just be the shortest thread I've ever written. I'm proud of myself. ^_^

...and really tempted to keep typing. :(

Wow, I didn't even know this page existed.
Literally precisely what I was going to post. Type away

, write up the HTML for the idea. One line of code could make it happen. Heck, I can do that:

<li class="main-nav__group-item"><a class="main-nav__group-item-link" href="https://www.runescape.com/drop-rates">Drop Rates</a></li>

Agreed; I remember accessing this page when Mod Shauny first announced it on Twitter. Since then, they've slowly kept adding to it. I think it would be a really neat idea to add a link somewhere at the top of the page.

Hey,

We see requests for these pages to be on the homepage pop up every now and again. However, we have to think long term. Is this a page you'll want to access (either as a current, new or potential player) continuously across your gameplay experience?

If not, we're unlikely to add it to the homepage. We want the homepage to be where you go to find your most high profile pages and links to information such as the news and you can expand that through "sub-hubs" if necessary. Rather than a dumping ground for every piece of content we release making confusing menus and discouraging users from looking around the information they may find helpful at that time.

If there is no easy way to access said page then yes it should be accessible via the dropdown IMO. It's actually an incredibly useful page.

There's no harm in trialling it. :)

And honestly I think doing something like this would boost the morale of the the regulars here given the lack of updates and openness from the web team.

The usefulness I think isn't the point I'm trying to make. The homepage should be a hub for the content our users need to access most regularly and provides the most impactful content, a page which provides drop rates isn't something the average user is going to access multiple times a day, as opposed to for example the forums :)

As for openness of the web team, we're updating the website all the time. Just yesterday we re-launched this and this

Happy to reply to that thread later on, but I'm not sure that'll alleviate your concerns.
