Tell me about your journey in RSOF.

I’ve come across so many fantastic forum users over the years. Yet, I don’t really know what your journey has been like. I just know the one fantastic individual with their ever so brilliant posts.

What prompted me to make this thread was seeing the user Joel. I suddenly had a memory that Joel used to be named something else (I hope I’m getting the right person lol :P) and before he was an Fmod, he created a thread asking to remove ‘champion’ from ‘community champion’ which Jagex referred to player moderators at that time. The thread became HUGE. It took some time before Jagex finally listened but during that time, Joel and his camp had never given up - always trying to be active. It was one of the highlights of the forum community.

So tell me about you - what are some of your favourite moments, sad moments, or accomplishments being a forum user? What was your journey like that lead you here?

My forum journey has been a bit of a wild ride. The forums have been an integral part of my passion for RuneScape, as it was where I always went to learn more about the game and Jagex, to interact with the community and to discuss various issues and ideas to make the game better.

At one point, I was a Jagex fanboy with too much time on my hands so I'd spend hours just debating and arguing on the forums. I'm glad I got over that. However, what that also helped do for me is that it -- like the game itself -- helped me hone my communication abilities and my typing speed. Moreover, without the RSOF, I wouldn't have gotten into forums as a whole and I would have never ended up has the lead support specialist and community manager for what was once one of the largest free forum hosts on the internet (and that also provided several major opportunities in my career). Additionally, if not for one of my old, long-running fan posts about MMG, I would not have had the opportunity to chat with him one-on-one which, along with a discussion with Andrew Gower about my desire to jump into the industry, is a highlight of my RS 'career'. If those two encounters never happened, I don't know where I'd be because they were both the primary inspiration behind my decision to dive into entrepreneurship.

Nowadays, I don't spend as much time here but I do still drop by. I miss the days when Jagex was more focused on the forums and the games than social media and Discord, neither of which I particularly want to use that much. Nonetheless, I still enjoy stopping by here to talk with my fellow players, discussing things about the game, theorizing about lore, talking about nostalgia and so forth!

Well, actually more active than playing the game! Have been here for many years!
tbh ive never looked at ur post count since (no offense) all ur replies are so short and silly i hardly take them seriously and again i mean no offense by saying that :P

personally ive used the forums for ages just here and there though not like some of the others that are always on here thats just recently for me but i always enjoy a good chat with a bunch of regulars as it were 3^9 being one of them ofc its also nice getting all the different insight on peoples opinions on things even if we dont see them the same way its still nice to bounce ideas or opinions off other peoples ideas and it gets heated sometimes but thats just how it is

ive been really enjoying the forums over the last few months that ive been a new "regular"

I remember the forums being a place that was easy to get help from.

Now it's something I avoid because of this captcha.

I get a new captcha ever 10 minutes.
Scatch that, it's now down to every 2 minutes


Reddit doesn't have it. The game doesn't have it. Only this website has it.

Does it work as intended? No

Will they fix it? No.

I have never encountered one of these on the RSOF. Not once. There was a time or two where I had one when I logged into my account on the site but that's just once in a while.
