While I've said my piece on many discussion threads about this topic already, I think it's about time I present my own thoughts in my own thread. Note: this is a discussion thread, not a suggestion.

Vanilla OSRS is a serious point of contention within the OSRS community at present, and it's not simply something we see exclusively here on the forums: it is present within the game as well, and we can see the community dissonance within the polls and their results. I have no doubt that a considerable portion of the No vote in the OSRS polls stems from the Vanilla OSRS proponents.

Although much content gets passed with flying colors, there are times when it does not -- when there is a strong opposition to proposed content to block it from passing. There are times when it is blocked by skillers, PvMers, and, quite often, the players who did not want substantial changes to OSRS -- the present Vanilla OSRS proponents.

There is, however, a viable solution to this matter: the implementation of a few Vanilla OSRS servers. Vanilla OSRS would be a server version with no updates and therefore no polls. Vanilla OSRS players would not be inclined to interfere with polls on the grounds of simply not wanting an update because they will be playing on no-update servers. That does not stop other players from opposing content for other reasons (i.e. trying to lure skillers and PvMers into the Wild).

Vanilla OSRS is not obstructive to the development or maintenance of OSRS or RuneScape as a whole. Remember, Jagex maintains RSC on 5 servers to this day. They even reopened it a few times, and RSC has an average base of 200 users. OSRS would have a few hundred more active players than RSC.

Really, Vanilla OSRS provides us all with an opportunity to resolve this contention within the community, and if only for that reason alone, I believe it is definitely worth it.

Thread closed as this is plagiarized content, not to mention extremely old.

A quick google search shows this matches exactly the following thread on reddit, posted in 2017:

Additionally, the fact that it is plagiarized shows very clearly when it mentions facts that are no longer true, e.g., that Jagex still maintains RSC servers. RSC has been shut down for many months now.

Frog Home, while understandable you (and your few other accounts) are passionate about wanting Old School as it was on launch, creating threads like this is dishonest - content posted on the forums should be your own work, not that of others from other websites that you have blatantly copied as your own. And furthermore, throughout all of the prior discussions on Vanilla OSRS, Jagex stated that they had no intentions of doing that and if that position were to change, they would communicate that with the player base. Considering there has been no such communication, it is safe to say that their position has not changed, and as such creating threads every few months like this is not necessary.
