For those of you who are unaware, OSRS had a do not suggest list upon release back in 2013. It consisted of a bunch of updates which were outright unfeasible at the time and any threads asking for these suggestions were instantly locked. While this may sound extreme, the fact of the matter is that some suggestions are outright impossible or highly impractical due to the restraints of the dev team's manpower and resources since OSRS isn't (and hopefully never will be since it'd be flooded with microtransactions) the main game.

Suggestions on this list included but are not limited to EoC, HD, Grand Exchange, GWD, and more. While this does sound kind of ridiculous, the GE and GWD were outright unfeasible back then. Regardless, that's besides the point. Some suggestions such as EoC and HD have remained unfeasible. Others such as alternate servers of any form have become an issue barred from discussion on the forums since.

Jagex has refused to provide a poll for such topics which is basically them saying that anyone who wants these updates can cry all they want but they're not getting it. Period. Throwing childish and immature temper tantrums isn't gonna help anyone's cause. The only options anyone has for HD, EoC in OSRS, alternate servers, etc are to adapt or gtfo and find a new game. Since these topics keep showing up on the forums and are unfeasible, we need to bring that list back to encourage actual discussion on these forums instead of just turning it into a spam bin for those who wish to rant about this game.

Also, Jagex should stick to their original dev blog. When we voted for OSRS, we didn't hit 750k votes meaning that at the start, free players weren't allowed to post on the forums. If someone doesn't play the game, they don't deserve a say in the future or direction that this game is taking especially when it's mindless rants half the time. Tuffty stated that he wouldn't mind pinning such a thread which is why I'm putting my two cents out there. Discuss.

I support such a thread, but topics on that thread should be chosen very carefully.

For example, OSRS HD or whatev is probably not feasible, doesn't need to be suggested, obvious add to the list.

But a lot of people discuss alternate servers, such as OSRS vanilla. I don't think such discussions should be banned outright, even if such servers are highly unlikely to happen.

Jagex -should- "stick to their original dev blog" and they should do so BECAUSE "we didn't hit 750K votes" and what that actually "means" is that we didn't HAVE ANY free players (we didn't have f2p or bonds) and we didn't get enough votes to have polls in the first place..

"Level 4 - 750,000 or more votes:
2007 Servers will come back as a separate entity to the main RuneScape game, with a larger dedicated development team with no extra membership fee and the free portion of the game available to all. These servers will receive continuous maintenance, modern anti-bot technology if necessary and - crucially - regular members' polls to determine which updates you want to see prioritised."

So yeah I can agree they should "stick to their original" claims.. ALL of them.. not just the select few that I like either. =)

While I do agree with that portion of your post.. I don't agree that blocking actual discussion in a forum designed for.. discussion.. would be a good idea. Kinda defeats the purpose of even having a discussion forum ya know..

Oh and at the start.. we didn't have these forums.. just sayin' =)

Vanilla servers fall into that category because such a thing isn’t feasible and isn’t worth the discussion. A lot is an overstatement more like four or five people discus wanting vanilla servers.

Except that Ayiza himself stated that these servers are outright unfeasible. HD at least has a couple of people supporting it.

Vanilla servers, however, have something to be discussed.

What's there to discuss about HD OSRS? Jagex knows there's a demand and it would require a ton of developers to work on. It wouldn't come about a a consequence of any thread.

In other words I think there's value in discussing why people want different kinds of servers, but there's little value in discussion over people making threads asking for OSRS HD over and over.

Point is that what you think is ideal is what others consider to be a nightmare. Regardless, it's not happening and deserves to be on such a list. Get over it.

Isn't this forum dead enough already without blacklisting a bunch of the topics that people actually care about discussing? If they didn't there'd be no need to blacklist them, right?

And who gets to decide what goes on this list? As can be seen in this thread, there's absolutely zero consensus about even 1 topic that should be blacklisted.
"Everything I want that will never pass a poll in a million years is an integrity issue!" No. Get over yourself.
