Ty what is Clue Juggling. Also when is GE new spaces coming out?

Clue juggling is when you want to have two clue scrolls at once, but the game won't let you, so you drop one on the floor while you're carrying the other. Technically it's a bug, but there are decent reasons why you might like to do that kind of thing, so we're making this change to avoid you having to mess around like that.

The GE spaces (and the clue change) have not been done yet because Ian and I are both working flat-out on resizable mode, and John's testing it. Also we're coordinating with RS3 about the GE change since the codebase is shared, but I don't see that causing any delays.

Will the world switching limit be increased with this update too?

A little. But it's still trying to avoid you running into the login system's limiter. Originally I'd hoped that our in-game worldswitcher could disregard that completely, but apparently it can't.

Another thing Ian might be able to look into for us when he's not so busy on everything else.

Showing ping would be AMAZING. I'd love to see that in the future. :D

Me too. Showing player numbers won't be a problem - after all, the game knows them, so it can output them with a very little engine work. But it doesn't know ping. Indeed, ping might prove to be unfeasible, but I think it's well worth having a try in future, when time permits.

A little statistic for you:

There are 196 distinct compost bin scenery units, allowing for all the different Examine messages. That's 98 for standard compost bins and another 98 for the darker one in Morytania.

About one third of these are for the compost bin when it contains tomatoes for making rotten tomatoes. I suspect most players don't know they can do that.

Hopefully I've got them all plugged in in the right order.

G.E new spaces is be in june 1-30day? Or it's late and be in july?

Did we say a specific month?
Frankly, I'd be very surprised if it didn't come out in mid-June, but I'm not promising anything due to the involvement of teams beyond our control.

I might have missed it - I only scan read most things -

when does the summer "3 months for 5 bonds" offer end?

We didn't say.
In fact we don't know.
Mat's gone off to find someone who does know.

There is a typo in the last line, "The Blast Furnace foreman and Ordan are no longer obscured by other players standing on of them."

Lol - that typo was in an email I sent to John. I guess he's passed it on to Ronan.

...I think the time you need to wait after hopping 3 times has been decreased drastically, it felt forever before now it's only 2-3 seconds or so (unless my mind is playing tricks)...

It got decreased last Friday; I don't think it's decreased further today.
Rather than messing around with further hacky changes now, I'd rather wait until Ian can take a look at the login system's limit. Maybe he'll be able to let us bypass it, or at least get the in-game interface to predict accurately whether you're going to hit it if you try to hop.

Hey Ash, anymore news on a couple of the Web team working on the new OSRS site? I loved the community revised one that you've most likely seen. I'd love for that to get polled/added.

I haven't any news, sorry.
Getting the community to agree on a design has proven challenging.

One of the things that ought to be addressed with the website is making something suitable for mobile browsers. I can't imagine we'd ever say "oh, we won't make the website mobile-friendly because some players don't want us to".

As for what you see on your computer screen when you come to the website, though, I would prefer us to do something that the community broadly accepts. (Mind you, I don't personally expect to be involved, though I look forward to seeing the result.)
