So we all know the forum software is older than the dust on my grandmother's mantlepiece, but that won't stop me dreaming of things changing someday...


Imagine a world where on your home personal computer you could set a cookie to remember your login and better still to keep you logged in on the website. When you opened up Chrome and went to Runescape.com, you would be greeted by the friendly sight of not only your avatar already visible in the top right, but also a little red number with a dropdown list giving you notifications on the topics you subscribe to and the new posts that have been added since you were last on.

On top of all this, now don't get too excited, OSRS players would see their subforum at the top of the list and RS3 players would see things as they are now. For once in history, OSRS players would actually be able to find their subforum. I know, it's a pretty revolutionary idea.

Best of all, those times when you see someone say something in a thread which has nothing to do with the topic, you could actually just send them a private message to talk about it, instead of derailing the thread or having to create an entirely new thread just to talk about it for five seconds.

To be clear: I really like forums, and I don't want to see the place get wiped out in favour of a more "modern" social media platform.

I really do like forums.

They could just be so much better than this.

@Kopaka, yes you are right. We the RSOF users have been trying for years to give this place a good lick of paint. There are threads and even more threads of ideas, wonderful ideas, I made another myself today, one of many. I love these forums, but sadly Jagex does not, they do not see what we see and until the day they do there will be no changes.

Support for changes!
