If rants is to be taken seriously as feedback (it should be) then people, especially jmods, need to be able to know what game it's from when they read it.

OSRS rants will be good for both the RS3 rants forum, as well as OSRS specific forums. It removes rants from the other game from the current rants forum, and it'll allow other OSRS forums to flourish with more constructive feedback.

Rants Rules

Rants Guide

Welcome to the Rants Forum.

What is the Rants Forum for?

The Rants Forum is the place to provide us with feedback about anything related to Jagex or RuneScape where your feedback does not fit within an existing forum. Typically this may be where you wish to voice a concern (vent) but may not have fully constructed suggestions and solutions to the issue you wish to raise.

While we prefer all feedback to be constructive and balanced, the Rants forum does allow a certain amount of non-constructive and negative elements.

Please be aware that this forum is not a primary source of feedback for us, so if you have a suggestion it is far more likely to be seen in a regular suggestion forum.

We would kindly request that all Rants forum users read the sticky thread at the top of the forum which outlines the purpose of the forum and what is and is not acceptable within the forum.


According to the rants forum specific rules, a certain minimum level of constructiveness is required, but not as much as on the rest of the forums.

Rants is separated from suggestions in two ways:
1. Rants is more lenient in level of constructiveness.
2. Rants threads do not require a solution to the problem. They are problem-focused threads, while ideally suggestions forums are solution-focused or contribute to the game.

Now that you know what the rants forum is, you can stop derailing about it and now discuss whether OSRS has merits for its own rants forum. Thanks.

Jagex clearly stated The Rants Forum is the place for feedback not belong in existing forums. They also added Rant is not a primary source of feedback for them.

Obviously, they told us to use the regular feedback forums for anything meaningful, and hence there is no merit to spend precious development time to make 9000 more sub-rant forums.


Even if rants threads were meaningless (they're not), adding an OSRS rants forum would actually help developers find the more "meaningful" feedback in the relevant forums, by giving OSRS rants a clear place to go.

Secondly, your claim that it takes dev time to make a forum is nonsensical. Jagex recently popped up the patch notes forum out of nowhere, as well as a skilling cup forum. If you believe that opening up a little forum requires a hefty amount of dev time, you are vastly underestimating Jagex's skills. Please don't insult their intelligence with such absurd claims.

Im pretty sure they already do by reading the relevant threads.

Thus no need for yet another dead forum.
Proof it'd be dead?

Both of which are temp AFAIK.


Whether they're temporary or not has zero relevance to the fact that adding/removing a forum is not a lengthy process by any means.

If you were aware it's not relevant then why did you bring it up? ...


It was relevant, i just meant that i never said making forums isnt a lengthy process.


No it wasn't relevant. And I never claimed you said that. Please do try and keep up with the topic instead of nitpicking my statements out of context.
