So with Mondays update came an update to the website:
They removed the "Forums" button and replaced it with a "Download" button. Now you need to go to Community>Forums.

This coupled with the removal of patch notes from RGU as well as the obvious lack of attention and moderation really seems to signal the death of the forums in the eyes of Jagex.

They say they care about player feedback, but they really don't.

Could it be possible that they moved things around in preparation for mobile?


I'll certainly think so. The new forums layout is in preparation for the New Player Experience especially for the influx of new players through RS3 Mobile.

Jagex don't make Press Release often but they published two in the last 2 days with the lastest being the announcement of a batch of new Marketing Managers. The new Head of Product Marketing has "8 years experience marketing free-to-play mobile games on 25+ mobile games, a lot of them are AAA titles".

Something on the RS3 Mobile side is certainly cooking and I believe the website layouts are moving in tandem. But again as I mentioned, more new players and better new player experience is actually very good for the Forums.

"No plans to remove forums. Forum pictures stopped working a while ago and is a big problem to solve which isn't worth it."

Really no need to thank me as I just copied it from Reddit. You should thank the Reddit/blog people as well as the RSOF users for their passion on the Livestreams. From that we know the more old school forums/blogs communities are also tuning to Livestreams following the flow too... and on the other hand, Jagex is not forgetting the more old school RSOF community even when they are putting more efforts communicating the company's plans and news via livestreaming.
