Just a general observation. Lately these forums have become very toxic, in my opinion.
Flame wars or baiting in pretty much every thread, people being hostile towards certain versions of player, i.e Iron, Pure, Pker, Skiller, Main etc.

I don't understand why people have volatile and hostile natures towards game styles that are not their own?

We all play the same game, we just prefer to play it a different way to others. That doesn't make your or my preference any better or worse than the other.

Let's try and keep the forums civil. Have rational adult conversations about the game we all proclaim to love.

It gets a bit petty and unbearable to read when every thread has someone saying 'getgud' or 'l2pk' or any other type of assertive comment, when someone is asking a general question or has a genuine suggestion, to which they feel at the time would be suitable for them in their game play. Don't slate them for having a suggestion, help them understand why it may or may not be a good idea and offer constructive criticism to expand on their idea so it indeed does, benefit everyone.

Apologies for the borderline rant, I just am growing tired of coming to these forums on my breaks at work or any other time and every thread is just arguing and insulting.

Toxicity can save paragraphs & paragraphs of polite rabble.

Some of us have been quite patient with the direction the game went, & now the Player-count isn't all that great, we're quick to point out the flaws that have been delivered.

I haven't seen any vulgar or slang language used either, so at least it's civil in that regards.

+1. Though tbh I'm probably guilty of this myself. Really we all need to chill tf out.

Personally I've been avoiding half of the threads from the last few days because when I see people have a go at ironmen I can't help but want to fire back, even though I know it's dumb.

Wut? The player count is consistently maintaining massive record highs?

this is nothing compared to reddit f we allowed to flame more might be active.

But really its just competitive nature of the game. (not all) but most are lads just flexing their internet muscles.


Trolls kinda get ignored on here so dont worry. :)

Half the users on the OSRS forums are a couple of people using multiple alts to stir shit. Most people aren't like that.

If you see an obvious bait thread, report it.
Some people get confused on whose alt is who. I only use this account but I have picked up some trolling skills thanks to some people.

"Can't we all just get along?"

Support. By the way, your thread title reminded me of that one song called "Why Can't We Be Friends". :)
