1. Can we get more features on the forums, like the ability to make tables, link images that display automatically (instead of having to click to open them), allowing more special characters like certain alt codes etc?

2. Can you get rid of the old forum censor from the signature as well? Certain words that aren't inappropriate at all can still get censored.

3. Can you streamline the various moderators on the forums? For example, it feels weird that "community helper" is a moderator title as well, even though the title implies that the person is helpful in the community, which doesn't really require moderator privileges.

Are there any plans to resurrect the Forums?

You guys have completely abandoned the Forums for social media and that's understandable; however, there is still a community here and those plans to update the Forums have been forgotten due to "higher projects" such as RS Mobile. I believe that's unfair.

So uh, what has the web team been up to lately? Because so far we've had pursuits like:

- Adding knowledge base guides, then turning it into a player run wiki, then removing it altogether besides a small handful of pages, like the outdated gear guide
- Adding a whole part of the website dedicated to runelabs, then removing it
- Dividing the forums based on your total level, then removing that

And all those are years old. So what new features will we be looking forward to on the runescape site?

How is the progress on converting the remaining areas of the website to a mobile responsive layout?

Will areas of the website, such as the Account Management interface, be updated to the new theme?

Are there any plans to make the forums more accessible to JMods, allowing use outside the office? Could security methods be implemented on JMod accounts to ensure they can not be compromised or access to the full JMod suite of moderation tools limited out of the office? That could alleviate the security concerns.

EDIT: Thank you,

My questions:

* At the moment RuneScape website is a mix of two or three different designs from the past 10 years. Any plans to update key areas such as Account Settings to modern look?

* The RuneScape homepage poll is underused and new polls appear roughly once a quarter. Why is that?

* What are your plans for the RuneScape forums?

Could posts in Forum Help e auto-hidden but still visible to F Mods?
This would help stop "FH stalking" and harassment of people who have posted in there.
