Forum Video Guide


Hey there,

We need a Forum Video Guide, and we're looking for volunteers to create it for us! This will be our official guide to the forums, particularly aimed at new arrivals.

So, for you creative video makers out there, here's what we'd like to see included (not in order of importance, but all of these should have a section in the video):

- Show and give a brief explain for each of the forum sections (emphasis on the Customer support forum)
- Quickfind codes, where they are and how to use them.
- QFC paste space also being a search function for text.
- Explanation of sticky threads
- What are and how to use "Jump to thread, Search threads, Search Users, Code of Conduct, My Profile" effectively.
- Where to report problems (Forum help) and the Highlight feature (sends report to Jagex, not FMods)
- Tips and tricks of the forums (BBCode, Colours, quoting posts, etc).
- Language forums and how to get to them
- Anything else you feel should be included

We're looking for the video to be somewhere from 6-8 minutes long, and plan for it to be on the RuneScape Youtube as well as stickied on a busy forum, probably general. This will be an instructional guide to send newcomers to, or for those who wish to know more about the forums.

One winner will be selected and their video will be used by us. They will win:

- £20 RuneScape gift card
- RuneScape goody bag, including signed concept art
- Your name credited where we use your video

To enter, once your video is created please upload it to YouTube and send the link, with your display name, to competitions@jagex.com with the title "Forum Video Guide competition".

The competition closes on the 20th February, and competition terms and conditions can be found here. We reserve the right to not use the winning video if it doesn't meet a required standard for Jagex to use.

If you have any questions or queries about the forums or what needs to be included, several FMods have volunteered to be available in-game and on this thread to answer you. Leave a post here or get in touch with any of the following when they're in-game:

Applejuiceaj
Demither10
Dibi
Gavo
Joel
Leta
Mexk
Quest Luke
Risk Wizard
Twillow
VIP Tom

Good luck, please spread the word, and thanks for taking part!

Great idea. I'd love to see something like that for the onsite RS Wiki too.

Wanted to ask a question about something:

"QFC paste space also being a search function for text"

What do you mean by this? Searching for threads or for specific text within thread OPs across numerous threads within on the forums (key word search which I thought was impossible tbh :p ).

This is referring to the "Jump to Thread" box at the top of the forums. It was recently changed so that if you don't place a QFC in the box, but place text there instead, that it will run a thread search for what you typed in (the same as if you clicked the "Search Threads" button).

I have a couple of questions.

1) If you receive multiple good entries (which I think is likely), will you feature all of them or split the prize? Or will this competition have a single winner?

2) Are any of these FMods going to be entering the competition themselves? I don't really think I could make a better guide than they could.

I believe so. But this doesn't mean FMods will have an advantage. I know many forumers who have excellent and in-depth knowledge of the forums. These players may well be better video makers, too!

Don't think that FMods will have an advantage when JaGex choose the winner, because they won't. Everyone has got an equal chance. And remember, FMods will use the same information that regular forumers will be using. We know how to use QFC's and I'm sure most of you do too. ;)

There'll only be one winner.

FMods are able to enter the competition, but they won't have any advantage. The winner will be selected for the best video, which includes both knowledge and video creating skills. It was the FMod's joint decision to launch this to the entire community, rather than keep it in the FMod ranks.

Ta,
