This isn't the only thread about third party garbage. If you have been longer on the forums, you'd know.

your refusal to create/use your own custom communications platform makes u a laughing stock



I used to agree but you have to see this from other perspectives as well.


People play a lot of games and they are not going to individually check the dedicated forums/platform for every single game they play. It's simply far more convenient for players to use a single platform to discuss all of their games, which is why Reddit and Discord are so popular; they streamline the experience and have additional social features.


More people use Reddit/Discord than anything else and thus Jagex get very high rates of interaction, without having to convince anyone to check out the forums because people already use these websites daily for everything else discussion-related.


From a business or player perspective it makes absolutely no sense to push for the forums to be updated for anything other than game-specific purposes (Clan recruitment, operation of Friends chats, etc.) Everything discussion/feedback-related gets better interaction rates off-site and is far more convenient.


I used to actively enjoy using the RuneScape forums, but put simply Reddit is better for discussion in every way possible, and will always be more convenient because I discuss everything else there as well.

This website and subsequently these forums have been out of date for a very long time and Jagex are completely unwilling to update or start anew. It's very unfortunate, but obviously Jagex doesn't want to commit any resources whatsoever to their development.

Especially now that they can just use third-parties to do all the work for them, with very little consequence.

Maybe it's because Discord, Reddit, Twitter, etc. are all functionally far superior to the RSOF, and instead of updating their in-house forums to compete they'd rather just use those services. Lazy as fuck, sure, but all these services are free. Let's not pretend they're forcing you to pay for some shady backwater shit or something, most people use Discord in particular for things entirely unrelated to RS, myself included. Takes less than 5 minutes to download Discord, it's completely free, it's completely secure, and if your computer can run RS, it can run Discord.

Don't think this is even a battle worth fighting.

The truth is you're the weak, and I'm the tyranny of evil men. But I'm tryin'. I'm tryin' real hard to be the shepherd.
