Hi Everyone and welcome to this Events Guide and chat thread!

Here you will find all the information you need to start organizing community events of your own.

You will also find some useful tips from weathered and veteran event organizers on how to set up events, get a good turnout and make your event a success!

There is now an In game clock, which gives the official "Game Time". This is a reference point for everyone, and will allow you to set your event at a specific time in the game, thus avoiding all the confusing time zone conversion shenanigans (I should know, I always get them wrong)

This is the official game time (which is equivalent to UTC):



Happy Scaping!

Basic details to consider when planning events


If you're hosting an event, you obviously want other players to come! You will want to include the activity, date, time, location, and world at the very least. Depending on the nature of your event, you may also want to include the name of a friends chat that you will use.


I want to host a Giant Mole event! Will I be okay as long as I include "giant mole" somewhere in the details?
In many cases, events are self-explanatory, so you may not need to describe the activity much at all. However, if there are basic requirements or items that other players will need to bring (as in the case of the giant mole), it may be useful to include this information as well.


I want my conga line event to be HUGE! When can I hold my event so that a lot of people come?
Unfortunately, there's not a clear answer to this one! Depending on the time of the year and other players' real life schedules, attendance can vary greatly. Generally speaking, however, weekends are an ideal time to hold an event. You may consider creating a poll on your event's thread to determine which dates and times work best.


Location, location, location! All I have to do is tell people my event is in the wilderness and I'm all set, right?
In many cases, yes, but if you will be in dangerous areas like the wilderness, it might be nice to remind people not to bring valuable items with them.


Does it really matter what world my event is held on?
It could! First of all, you will want to consider whether your event will be open to all players or just members. If you are hosting an event that corresponds with a themed world (such as Stealing Creation), think about whether you want to hold your event on that themed world or on another world.

Tips for new event hosts


All event hosts have to start at some point! Organizing your first few events can be a little tricky, but you can make sure things go smoothly by reviewing this section of the guide.


I have never hosted an event before but would like to do so. Where should I begin?
It's a good idea to start right here on the forums! Post a thread listing the basic information that others need to know about your event.


How far in advance should I plan events?
At first, it's a good idea to plan your events at least one or two weeks in advance so that there is more time to spread the word. If your event requires a lot of preparation or you want an extraordinarily large crowd, you may want to plan further in advance.


How do I make sure a lot of people come to my event?
Make your event interesting! For example, if you're going to host a Halloween event, ask people to wear costumes to the event. Small details like themes can make events much more appealing.


No one came to my first event. Should I just give up?
Not at all! Think about what you can do to improve the next event's turnout. Maybe you should consider planning it at a more convenient time or give another activity a try. Never give up!


I love events but I don't feel comfortable organizing them by myself! Should I simply attend events that other players plan?
Many people would rather attend another player's event than host their own, and that's fine! However, you can also ask a friend to organize an event with you. That way, you can lead events without being the one and only leader.

More tips for Event Hosts, newbie or not


What time is it? My time is different than yours!
Jagex forums operate on the local time to Cambridge England. In the Fall and Winter, Cambridge is the same as GMT but in the summer they are GMT +1 (BST). To check the time, there are several ways to check by looking at this thread. You can first check by looking at the left corner of each post, or with the help of Mod Jon's posts above (containing various city's local times), and Great One's time conversion charts below, are all ways of finding the current time.

Furthermore, if you are in-game, you will notice a digital clock. This is the current local time at Jagex and the UK.


How can I get Jagex to promote my event on the site?
Send an email to community@jagex.com; give the name of the event, date, time (as on the forums), place and world plus a breife description plus the qfc to your forum thread.


Can I use social media to let everyone know about my event?
Yes, definitely. Include @RuneScape in your tweets and advertise your upcoming event. Follow JMods and other RuneScape players and ask them to retweet as well.

Promoting events on the forums


The forums are obviously a great resource for promoting events. There are different forums that you can use depending on the kinds of events you are interested in hosting or attending.


Which forum should I use to organize a team for a PvM activity?
The Teamwork forum can be used if you would like to organize a group for activities such as boss trips and social slayer.


I am getting close to a 99 and would like to host a party. Where can I post the details?
The Events and Competitions forum is the best place to promote events such as 99 parties.


I would like to host a conga line event twice per month! Which forum should I use to spread the word?
The Events and Competitions forum can also be used to promote events that will take place on a regular basis.


Where can I organize a group for dungeoneering?
If you would like to find dungeoneering partners, try using the Teamwork forum.


I would love to hunt penguins with other players! Where should I look?
You can check the Minigames and D&Ds forum if you are interested in finding groups for such activities.


If you have a specific question about where to promote a particular event, post here and we will gladly help!
