I think it's a shame that Menaphos got such bad reception, as it's very good content (including the pre-nerfed reputation system). I always find it weird that people were given a set of new, faster training methods, which they would be using to level up, anyway, but complain that they have to do them to gain reputation.

You got more than enough reputation, in the time it took to level up, within the level band the skilling methods covered. There are even end-game uses to a lot enough of the things there, for them to be of use to people who have already maxed, so that isn't really an excuse for whining, either.


The size, and appearance of Menaphos are definitely a big step in the right direction, as there are plenty of things that help with immersion, and bring the city to life. It took the best elements of Prif, and combined them with the ideas that Prif had cut out, taking up the progression from places like Dorgesh-Kaan, and Keldagrim (though Mazcab had kept some of those warm), with regards a living environment, with houses, shops, and NPCs going about their daily lives.

I think half of the problem, in that, is (and pretty much always has been) that JAGEX mean something entirely different, when they say something, than what players interpret it as meaning.


Both processes seem completely intuitive to each group, and neither seems to be aware that what the other was thinking was even a possible interpretation, thus people are sometimes voting for things they don't necessarily want, and JAGEX believes they do.


Amazingly, this process seems to be part of becoming a JMod, as I've witnessed at least 2 people, who were previously able to understand what players meant when they said things (and, indeed, were big advocates of such things, when a player), suddenly switch to the JMod interpretation, when they start working for JAGEX, and somehow seem unable to understand the interpretation that was natural to them (and something they'd supported), just days before that.


That said, the last time I'm aware of, that this caused a big issue, was about 4 Years ago, now.
