Hey guys,

I have now reviewed all Forum Specific Rules and have updated 10 of them. Details below:

Business and services - discussion thread
Future Game Updates - discussion thread
RuneScape Guides and Help - discussion thread
Item Discussion - discussion thread
Off Topic - discussion thread
Quests - discussion thread
Recent game Updates - discussion thread
Suggestions - discussion thread
Treasure Hunter - discussion thread

I have also opened up a discussion thread for the Events and Competitions FSR's as I would like community feedback.

For the most part these changes are cutting down on the rules in line with the recent CoC changes, with some rewording/clarifying too.

If you would like to feedback on a specific FSR change, please use the appropriate thread linked above. Please use this thread to let me know if I haven't made a change to an FSR that you think should be changed, with your reasons. This is so I can keep track of feedback sort-of-sensibly :)

Thanks!

Profiled so that I remember to look over all of the new FSRs. Thanks for the update!

Just looked over a few quickly before I have to go into a meeting. They are very concise and not overly restrictive, which I think is a step in the right direction and coincides with the change in the forum rules as well as the added leniency in the enforcement of the rules of the game as well.

I hope that the new rules will be allowed to stay after the trial!

Update FSRs in Other Feedback and Suggestion Forums.
Spotter: Sookie Lala
Summary: Can the specific forum rules for the other- suggestion and feedback forum please say that threads about bots go there and not in general. Can cause confusion, and deter new forum users when their thread is locked. (Sookie)
Comment and Notes: Update the Other Discussion FSR's, which are currently 1 line long. They could include some sample topics, one of which includes bots. (A Ringwraith)

Also made thread:
Title: Bot Threads. Where do they go?

-----

Update FSRs in the Guide Forums
Spotter: Tibervis
Summary: The rule stating that the word guide must be in the title is outdated and frankly ignored. Many people and Forum Moderators do not notice / enforce this rule.
Comments: The sticky thread doesn't even have the word guide in it! (x Mistii x)

-----

Update Monsters Forum Tagline
Spotter: Baffler
Summary: The FSR's and tagline of the Monsters forum reference Random events which have since been removed from the game, so a small edit is needed.

-----

Update Evolution of Combat FSR
Spotter: Zamochy
Summary: Rules are too broad (only thing it says is anything non-constructive, including rants, are liable to be locked) and cause Forum Mods to form their own lenient version, leading to a lot of arguments. I suggest Jagex create a list (like the old 'Do Not Suggest' list) that bans the suggestion of things ...

I did laugh at this rule lol.

I think most of those requests have either been sorted or are outdated (apply to ex-forums etc).
