Over recent years the activity level of the RuneScape Forums (RSF's) appears to have dropped and this is despite the continued dependency clan leaders have on the forums in highlighting and recruiting for their clans among other diverse reasonings for using the RSF's.

With this fact in mind I think it would be a great idea if Jagex were to introduce an in-game search utility into OSRS (and perhaps RS3) that interfaces with the current forum search utility so that clan leaders and prospective clan members can search for a clan they want to join within the game itself.

I think the forum search utility should be accessible from a tab somewhere within the game, which when clicked, allows a player to look up a thread by its name or QFC. Once a search is made I think matching thread names should be listed and hyperlinked to the website forum thread.

Some benefits of this idea would be:-

- Increased forum activity

- Increased clan recruitment efficiency

- More trust in and understanding of how to use the official forums (I presently recruit for my own clan with the line 'Apply on the official RS website > forum > search for 'insert clan name here' and this wrongly and frustratingly causes prospective clan members to suspect a scam or other untoward thing is taking place!)


Is this a good idea? Can the idea be further improved? Please let me know.

So this is fuckall to do with revitalizing forums and just a way of using them to recruit more and more clan members?

Membership since 2003 and 1k posts is not a reason to act like you really care mate.

Just saying, but an actual proper way to access the forums in-game is something that people have been asking for for a long time. OP is right that it would be a big benefit.
