Well I hope you guys could find a way to fix it, it's an awesome item but looks so silly when you're wearing ANY cape.

While we obviously like to fix bugs, the testers get a lot of reports, and sometimes the minor cosmetic issues will end up having to take a back-seat to other bugs that have more harmful effects. Sorry.

Understandable.

But the Guthan Chainskirt is a pretty iconic item, and it's been broken for like 1½ year now. It's been broken for so long, that it blurs the lines between being a bug or intended for some people. Some people think it may be intended because "It's a chain, so being look-through kinda makes sense, yeah?" but you can literally see the top half of our legs is missing, and it still looks normal and good on females :(

Would you suggest I try to report it again? I try to be pateint with my reports and not spam hardcore, but I also don't want these things to be forgotten.

there is a graphical issue when crossing the mini falador wall west of falador, please look into this

Yeah, the GFX systems of RuneScape were designed to work on low-spec computers in 2004 inside a browser applet. There's a lot of optimisation been done that involves making assumptions about render orders, etc. This means that when a player's interacting closely with scenery, it'll often have minor graphical issues. It's a shame, but that's how RS was able to exist at all in those days.

P.S. I'd suggest you right-click the 'Report' button in the game, as there's a bug report form there that lets you send your messages directly to the testers. But, as I've mentioned, minor graphical things aren't always going to be a priority for fixing, and sometimes may not even be possible to get perfect.

So why did you get rid of the ranks of the clan chat in the game chat. I liked that update.

Edit: unless it was an osbuddy thing.

I tend not to be personally involved in GFX updates since I can't actually do 3D modelling myself, but I gather a lot of items were remodelled back then because their polygon counts were too high. The artists did their best to preserve the appearances while retopologising the models, but may not have always got it exactly right.

Anyway, if you're sure it's meant to look differently, and you're also satisfied that players aren't going to complain about such an iconic item changing its appearance after so long, you can always right-click the 'Report' button to tell the testers in detail how it's meant to look.

I don't remember that ever existing in OSRS, never mind being removed from it.
