It was hard to keep your post on the front page. 50+ active people at once. I know it's the dead of night right now, but still. It's not much better during the day. They banned anyone who spoke out of turn.. but now I see people literally swearing in threads. Wow

The rules have been relaxed somewhat over the years.

Just remember bad language is ok as long as it's not directed towards others. Some still don't like seeing it and I'm sure if and when people make good quality threads or posts they won't add any bad language which sometimes puts people off adding any further discussion.

A nice thread/post will or should get replies. A thread/post full of bad language may still get locked. ;)

The Forums still have a use. Honest. ;)

Yup. Very dead, somewhat troll infested, but at least we can say shit in moderation ^_^


I don't think I've ever seen a forum troll on here.
I would much rather anyone PK in game than do so irl. If you wanna get it out, do it on an online platform please. I don't want anyone getting harmed physically. :(

No need to lie...
Most threads that get locked are those that have legit conversations, yes sometimes they can get heated but thats normal, i had my comments hidden for telling someone to stop being overly sensitive, thats not even offensive but still got hidden.

Most threads that dont get locked are the ones that go in circles actually bashing a community and falsely accusing them of botting / rwt or just being cheaters over all, funny how those threads seem to last a long time.

seems like the fmods like trolling and dont like legit arguments, could explain why the forums are dead.

Well, I think it's easy to throw things up and say it's the reason for the forums not feeling as busy as they once did. For instance, it used to be blamed on the Code of Conduct being too strict and overbearing so it was relaxed. That didn't bring back the busyness feel of the forums.

The Grand Exchange helped slow down the marketplace forums quite a bit, and other social platforms and fansites have given players many more places to talk about the game. Everything you could ever want to ask about the game is probably answered on the Wiki, so question threads are less popular too.

Times have changed so there's a little time for each thread to enjoy more than 15 minutes on page 1 of a forum. It would be cool to see it pick back up again because I really like this platform, but I'm afraid forums in general just dont seem to be as popular with the masses on the internet as they once were.

I still think it's too extreme even after it was "relaxed" lol.
