So the OSRS General forum is pretty much filled to the brim with people advocating for the creation of new vanilla servers.

Half of the threads on the front page are about alternate servers like these. It's gotten to the point where there's now new threads that are specifically for being against these servers, and even metadiscussion about how "divided" the server advocates are.

Can something be done about this? Most of the threads are just the same people arguing about it. Additionally, I guess the threads would probably be better off placed in the OSRS Suggestions forum, preferably in a sticky specifically for the discussion. I haven't seen any mods move server threads to OSRS Suggestions, so IDK if they are considered to belong there currently or not.

What are your feelings on this? Do you think it's not an issue? Should the subject be given a sticky? Or is having several threads on this reasonable?

Sounds like some flavor of the month thing that'll pass.

If it goes on sticky should work, pointless to have 5 topics on the same thing, can just mass lock rest and make em use the mega thread.

Nah even then theyd probably still make their own threads sadly.

I mean look at all of the soa threads that get made.

Original message details are unavailable.
We’ve been keeping an eye on the posts regarding us releasing an untouched version of OSRS as it was originally in 2013. The truth is that it’s not something we as a team, or a company, want to do. The main reason behind this is because we’re not interested in splitting the RuneScape player base further, especially given that Old School was, and is, built on its community.

You also must keep in mind that we need to look at this from a commercial standpoint. Whilst it may seem like a small or quick job on the outside, the additional resources required to start these servers, keep them running and maintain them going forward ultimately is just not viable. Taking development and engine resources from the main game, which is very much thriving, is not a wise decision for the business to make.

Quite simply it’s not something we can, or are willing to commit to. We fully understand there are those of you that feel extremely passionate about this, and whilst we’d love to please everyone, we simply cannot accommodate these requests. If our stance changes on this at any time, we will make sure everyone is made fully aware.

I'll be locking similar threads going forward and pointing them towards this comment.


Mod Ayiza made a statement on one thread and is locking the rest.

Issue is resolved and this thread can be closed.
