As it's a private server, you should edit your OP to remove the titles you have there. It's against the rules to advertise private servers, and you're inadvertently doing so.

I'm also puzzled as to why you created this thread in the Future Game Updates section. I'm not totally familiar with all the many sections this forum has, but there's got to be a more suitable section than here.

To be honest, I panicked and didn't know where to put it. XD . Can't delete a thread though!. :s

@ Uncle Pob, guess that'd why you're not a Mod. I'm simply trying to help get attention to this so it can be removed etc. If people got banned etc for trying to help well, no-one would ever report anything!

@ Thank you Bally-Hoo, will do that. In hindsight that would have been the best to email them 1st, but I find sometimes forums get attention and thus maybe it would get taken down/delt with sooner.

You don't have to be a mod to have witnessed this kind of situation happen many times on the forum, and in every single case the OP is either asked to manually edit their post or the post is edited by a moderator.

There aren't many FMods, and the forum is huge. So far a moderator doesn't appear to have stumbled into this topic yet, and forum users have no way to report individual messages and users to the FMods from the forum (the only available topic for reports is real-world law breaking, believe it or not), so that post is on borrowed time until an FMod does pop in.

Realize that there are ways to contact Jagex discreetly over these kind of matters. There's an email address you can use: tipoff@jagex.com - posting the details publically on here will inevitably result in driving traffic to that server, causing more people to play on that server thus doing more harm than good.

Heya, SkweeBean

It's best not to post things like this because you're also giving these people free advertising.

Some players may get curious and put their Pc's/RuneScape accounts at risk.

As stated above, the most you can do is send an email to
tipoff@jagex.com
& report the offending posts on youtube.

@ SkweeBean - You post has been hidden as you should not be posting the names of private servers on the public forums. It could give them more advertising and might also put players real RS accounts at risk.

As both Uncle Pob & Mega Duck have explained, if you want to make sure that Jagex is aware of those private servers, the best thing to do is drop an email to tipoff@jagex.com.

As well, while the YouTube channel owner can state preferences for the types of ads shown with their videos, they do not have complete control over the ads that are shown. For that reason, the posts naming the channel you were watching have also been removed.
