I kind of agree. But I was thinking maybe OSRS forums should be above the other forums. That way it would be very obvious.


Whys thats?

I mean you do know which of the 2 is more promoted right?


Because I'm not so sure OSRS players are deliberately posting in the wrong forum. But if the OSRS subforums were say, right under the VIP subforums, they couldn't get lost. And the RS3 forumers would see OSRS General and know they needed to look a bit further in.

I'm saying this because alot of the time I feel people think they have the right place and it's not clear enough for them where they should post. Should Jagex care enough to make it simpler? Idk, it's up to the web developers but if we're discussing it here, I think it might be worth looking at for the health of the forums.
Agreed.

Jmods know who deliberately post in the wrong forums using multiple accounts. I've seen Fmods commented and warned abusers in different occasions in the forums too. No need to argue. When we see threads posted in the wrong places or multiple threads posted of the same content posted in different places, we just report them. Then it is the job of the Fmods to deal with them. If they find suspicious users and their alts, they should definitely contact Jmods to keep the forums in healthy condition, no "ifs", "ands" or "buts".

From the OSRS home page, the "forum" link clearly positions a user to the OSRS forums.

Also, it is extremely clear Jagex's perception of OSRS in the RSOF from their guidance for the users on update and news discussion. Their typical comment is:

"Discuss this update on our official forums, the community-led 2007Scape Reddit, or the community-led OSRS Discord in the #gameupdate channel."


Meanwhile, Jagex still guide all RS3 forum users to the RSOF forums for RS3 news and update discussions, all the time, and nowhere else.

Jagex have provided their guidance on forums and social media regarding RS3 and OSRS very clearly already.

Thank you for the insightful comments, fortunately they don't provide any reason not to implement a better naming procedure for separating the forums and simplifying it for the growing runescape communities. :)

Jagex, or at least the Modern Age or 3rd Age Jagex has been very clear and extremely consistent in their discussions of Runescape and Old School Runescape in all public and private channels, Runescape means RS3 some players in the 1st and 2nd Ages of Jagex called. That's their OFFICIAL "naming procedure" to the entire real world and also these RSOF.

If you or any OSRS users don't agree with it, too bad, but you can all go to other sites for OSRS discussions, per Jagex guidance. :D

Worth a shot I suppose to help eliminate confusion.

Though they have the help sections listed and people still seem to not scroll far enough to see them and still get lost in another section.

Even renaming sections helps a little but you will still get misplaced threads. Been here since the Forums were born and seen 1000's of misplaced threads in my time here. It takes seconds to move them so I personally see no issues with an odd misplaced thread. If they are placed there to disrupt a section then I'm sure Jagex will deal with it then.

I see nothing to worry about as it can be fixed. :D
