1.2 ..
The Name Noticeboard
..

Mining/Smithing Rework :O Once the update happens, rune items are expected to decrease in their high alch prices and will also require only 50 mining/smithing (instead of 85), to align with how you need 50 att/def to use rune items, and the requirements for other ores will also be lowered/adjusted.

1.3 ..
Clan Rules
..

1) Be respectful and friendly. Don't talk down to people.

2) We like a drama free clan so if you have a problem with someone, take it to private chat or one of the meeting rooms in the citadel and sort it out there. There are to be no arguments in the clan chat.

3) No discussion of religion, drugs or political issues/beliefs.

4) Only lend items using the lending system.

5) No asking for items or money. We also prefer members not to give expensive items or money to other members. Use the lending system if you would like to do someone a favour, especially with how there are scammers who impersonate others by switching capital i's and lowercase l's, and who pm people asking for loans.

6) If you have any problems with the clan please talk to Sookie or Vivy and we will attempt to sort it out. Please don't leave before talking to us.

7) No one likes a potty mouth. Please keep swearing down to a minimum. That means, the occasional slip up is ok, continual swearing is not.

8) We all dislike botting, botting ruins players game play so if we find out a member is using a bot they will be spoken to and maybe asked to leave.

9) Everyone can recruit new members but please don't badger or bribe people to join the clan. We prefer people to want to join and ask for an invite themselves.

Ava Rules
..

Call out what world the ava is on, as well as when you dismiss it :)

If both avas are out, one of them should be on world 134 or world 100, or a world on which there are multiple clannies. World 134 is our official homeworld, chosen because of sinkholes, and w100 is our unofficial home world due to how there are always braziers at the Shantay pass there. Those two worlds people can generally expect an avatar to be present on.

Woah, I'm catching baron shark!! First time I'm harpooning stuff outside of a daily challenge lol. Didn't know those were catchable, thought they were only rewards from prawn crackers :P

Did you guys know of the differences between baron and regular sharks?

Regular:
- Tradeable
- Heal 2000

Baron:
- Untradeable
- Heal 2000 at first, but additionally heal 50 lp per second, for 10 second. So, heals 2500 total

:O :O :O

Hagar
, it's worth it to complete all the cases! Remember the Heart of Gielinor event, where your contributions allowed you to unlock prizes? There's a cute sock puppy from this one, as well as some xp lamps :)

You also get treasure hunter keys, iirc, for completing each miniquest. And each miniquest is SUPER easy and super short, as of lately.

My current goals are questing and achievement tasks. And reaper tasks, and I'll normally ask the clan if they'd like to join me on my reaper tasks since I die too easily if it's just me, and if no one's interested, then I'll ask my fc or my friends list :p

Hagar
, I personally really like it :) Everything is smoother, but I play on minimum so the graphics actually looks weirder lol. I do think it's better on my computer, too.

However, I still play on the old client simply because it has fewer bugs, and I like to do combat stuff, so I'd rather not risk it on NXT. For now, you're not missing out on much simply because of how buggy NXT is.

Awesome awesome work, Hagar! I'm so glad to see and meet new faces in The Name ^_^

We haven't met 30 visitors some of the past few weeks--trying to remind folks of it, will try to individually ask people as well :) the mining plot is honestly pretty good XP, too--pretty sure it's scaled, because at least the wc plot is

Link to the Runescape 2017 survey here!!!

Vote for what you want to see this year, including mounts, skill pets (similar to boss pets), and farms with greenhouses :D

Also, please vote for the Clan Permissions Rewrite ^_^ I said that was my #1 interest for this ;)

What it would do is allow clan owners and leaders to customize what rank can do what--as it is now, the lowest rank that can summon the avatar is Admin, but Admin can also kick people. It hasn't really been an issue with our clan, but other clans have experienced admins kicking people from the clan, making them lose a lot of xp that they've had with the clan (that RuneClan tracks, btw), and any orts they might have had :(

=== IMPORTANT CLAN NOTICE: BE WARY OF IMPERSONATORS ASKING FOR MONEY ===

There have been scammers going around, posing as clan members and asking for loans to purchase items or flip things on the GE. The lowercase L and capital i both look similar, which is how they try to impersonate people, so be very careful when receiving pm's from so-called clannies.

To verify someone's identity, right click their name on the clan list and message them from there, as opposed to hitting tab to respond, or you can right click their name on your friends list where the capital i is actually noticeable.

We had one person pm me--someone named biack_guy, where the i was capitalized, posed as black_guy. I reported him and let the clan know what was going on.

What happened was someone I didn't recognize joined the clan, I said hi, they didn't respond.

A few minutes later, I get a pm from biack_guy (the impersonator) asking for a loan to make a GE flip. I added this guy from my private chat, then went to the clan list and right clicked the real black_guy, and I had the option to add him as a friend, meaning because there was no right click message option, I had an imposter.

When I checked my friends list and right clicked biack_guy the imposter's name, the capital i also stands out more easily there.

I reported the imposter for scamming, and he eventually stopped responding when I kept giving him money-making advice, and asking what he was intending to flip, what his profit margin per item was, as well as what his intended purchase volume was, lol.

Then I kicked the rando I didn't recognize but explained my actions before doing so, just in case he wasn't related to the scammer. (He was also still in the clan chat when I was narrating how black_guy had an imposter, how you can find out, and that begging is against clan rules)

Omg, a wild Blankies has appeared on the forums!!

Oh, that's clever about using a sign of porter to deposit items. But I've noticed that you can bank stuff at the little rowboat you get off at, so that's a last resort at the very least (haven't explored any islands larger than small tbh.)

And yeah, I won't be able to afford the deposit box upgrade until later :\

I also recommend that everyone read the 'Scamming Prevention Guide' article in the Support Centre, so you can educate yourselves against scamming.

Thank you to who ever collected the exact amount of resources need to cover the entire upkeep of each plot. Awesome stuff. :)
For those of you who don't know, you can check how much we need of each resource to maintain upkeep:

Go to citadel: Open Citadel Information (where world map icon normally is) > View resources (4th icon in top left, looks like bars with an arrow above it) > Hover over each resource and look at the 'Upkeep' number
