Sounds good overall.


What do you class as high level forum user? Someone who is maxed??

Is a high level forumer members only??

Closing General to low levels, possibly f2p as well - we will be unable to asked question or get ingame help that's not related to account problems, why is this a bonus to the forums?

Closing Feedback to low levels and possibly f2p on new game content or changes to the game is good for the forums in what way??


So with Feedback you only want view points from a certain criteria closing it to lower level and possibly f2p??

Not sure why you bolded your response, I can read it unbolded, it's like you are yelling at me...

1. Someone who has at least 99 in every Skill in RuneScape 3. This is synonymous to being maxed.
2. Considering that you must be a member to get 99 in every member Skill in RuneScape 3, I am assuming that you would need to be a member in order to gain access. As for keeping access to these forums if you become a non-member, I am not sure.
3. I'm confused as to where you are seeing that the Forums are going to be closed to F2P? May you point me in that direction, please?


I am wondering if they are going to change high level being maxed to a bit lower?? As how can they get a true understanding of views if it's only from one area of the game, older players, maxed players - why aren't Jagex interested in new players, mid level players views?? Why arent' they important??

No I never said RSOF is going to be closed to f2p players, I am stating some of the forums are going to be closed to low levels, which means f2p too if the player needs to be maxed. If the high level is not a maxed level then maybe higher level f2p would get there views in.

It was just to differentiate my response from your quotes, Dong. Nobody is yelling at you. The same feature I used you have it at your disposal to use whenever you wish ;).

I beg to differ - bolding a whole paragraph is not needed as you well know to differentiate the post. I often see you around the forums and this is the first time I have seen you do this - I must be special...


Yes I understand what high level means ApplejuiceAJ, i was just wondering if they were planning on changing it as I stated how can they get the real view if

Specialist Forums

is only open to maxed players?? Doesn't the lower level views on the game matter?? Doesn't a new player, a mid level player have view points of intrest to Jagex??

They do matter and we do have access to other areas of the Forums to provide our feedback. That feedback is related to players that are maxed and have earned that benefit by obtaining those Skill levels required. It isn't that they are excluding us from sharing our views, it's that in order to use that subforum, you must meet certain criteria.

Right now, we are providing our feedback to Jagex regarding the recent changes made to the Forums. They are not blocking anyone.

Going by what they are stating in the Opening post - feedback on ingame content is going to be in the Specialist Forum. General forum as we know it sounds like its changing to Content Creator General which is in the Specialist Forum.

What do you mean by the Games Forum, Dong? The only sections that are being removed are the ones outlined in Meadows post under the "The Following Forums will be archived:" section

And the games forum is under that section.

This whole section will be archived, but as seen above we will be moving lots of the current section to the new "RuneScape Game" section.

Hmmm. :)

Sorry, if I have got it wrong in other areas such as General Forums and feedback forums - I will just have to wait till it comes out and see whats what - I think I need to sleep before I comment any further or reread the opening post - lolz...

I just hope they give the whole of RSOF an update, not just the forums it self - RSOF desperately needs a whole lot of paint to brighten it up, bring in some much needed buttons and gadgets to bring it up to the 21st century.

I asked for that, a couple of times, before, but both times they said they didn't want their image to be tainted by the perception that the game had problems..

I disagree with that argument. I think it applies to something like the Rants forum, but not to the support forums. I think making the support forums more prominent demonstrates Jagex's commitment to providing good customer support, which does not imply that there are "problems" with the game.

Also, a secondary benefit of making the support forums more prominent is that players who come to the forums for support are more likely to notice them at first glance, and therefore place their support requests into the correct section.


I agree with your words here. Further up would benefit that forums and the game overall. Good customer support is a positive not a negative for the game, so bringing it up would be a win-win for all concerned.

Na, there are a lot of threads that are important that are way down the bottom. We have a website that is just using the centre of the screen for its index. Having columns would mean less time scrolling looking for the forum you need. You could just about have all the forum titles right there in front of your eyes, not much scrolling, if any to find the forum you require. I think it's quite a reasonable solution.

@Trevopada

I'd suggest contacting Meadows via the Community email. Put some emphasis on it being a +10-year initiative supported by thousands of players and part of forum heritage.


Thanks for the suggestion. What is the community email? I can't seem to locate it anywhere, I'll give it a try!

Sorry for the mistake and I hope he moves it.
