Just so people don't miss what Tree and Mist said (I'll edit this post once people have read it)

Original message details are unavailable.
New thread would be awesome with quick quick find code links to all the different useful stickies but I agree with Sookie.... Partially.

Definitely need to include stickies in other forums, but can't see why useful navigation around the forum shouldn't be implemented alongside it x

Would anyone be upset if I recreated this thread? I'd like to put helpful links to your community threads such as the W&F Improvements and W&F Quick Fixes in the OP.


What, recreate this thread!? :o Waaaaaaaah! :'(
(Runs to save posts)


Only joking :P

Well, why not, it would be good to have an OP who's actually still with Jagex, if nothing else!
And yes, some links would be useful too, both the stickies and non-stickies, certainly no harm in having them anyway!

Just one thought, the W&F Discussion thread has traditionally been focussed on just that, 'discussion'. That's mainly because of the title, but also because of the nature of the opening post. I do like the fact that we can discuss serious website and forums topics here, without our posts disappearing in a throng of short unsubstantial chit chat within minutes, but I also sometimes wish it was just a tad more...well...'chatty', you know? Not too much, but just a bit!

With that in mind, perhaps EITHER the new title could incorporate the word 'chat', whilst retaining the focus the current focus on discussion in the opening post, OR, the title could remain as it is, but a sentence popped in the opening post just so that's it's clear to those who frequent the W&F forums that it's ok to just drop by for a quick chatty exchange with their fellow forumers too?

Not sure what others might think about that? I'd not like to lose the quality discussion feel of this thread entirely! It's pretty unique in that way as a 'chat' thread, if it is a 'chat thread' at all that is, and that uniqueness is good. It's just that it might be nice to feel free to relate with other players a little less formally on it too? :)

Indeedy, but hopefully the links will be of some use.

Also, I don't think there's much need for me to link to other areas of the forum as usually this is very unlikely to be the first forum a person goes to. What do you guys think?

The people who hang out here will primarily be wanting to discuss W&F anyway - the first few pages are not something to base your assumptions on as it is a brand new thread which I asked for people's opinions on.

This is still a forum, though, which is here precisely for the reason of discussing things. The old thread was dead and there was not much discussion there, really. Every few days isn't very good.

Your first two posts were there, and my opinion is still the same having read the 3rd post. Happy for others to post their opinions though!

Remember - most people don't use the forum to make big lengthy posts about how to do things, they just want to post and discuss issues in a more relaxed way.

Valy Super19 - I've passed your account on to the ICU team who deal with this, but I'm afraid I can't provide any assistance with this as the others have said.

To everyone else: I've just put a 'No grave bumping' rule in the FSR to stop old threads being recycled without need. It's nice to keep the relevant threads at the top. :]

With regards to using the search term to see if a thread already exists, that is to look for a thread to see if your question is answered already. The problem with using a 3 month old thread (which hasn't been posted on for as long) is that a lot of the original issues won't be relevant, particularly here.

If a thread is still relevant it's not grave bumping, if it's just being 'bumped' to keep Chewy from eating it even though the discussion has ended, that's just taking up valuable space for more relevant threads.

To be honest if there's a thread which hasn't been posted on for 3 months, it probably isn't going to have any discussion left in it.

Cyanid said:

I'd say gravebumping isn't that bad in this section (assuming that the thread being gravebumped has some discussion value).




The bit in brackets there is the key! If the thread has discussion value then that's fine (although not sure how it'd get to page 50 in a relatively slow moving forum area in that case) - grave bumping just for the intent of keeping them from Chewy though is not really very helpful.

Best of luck with getting a new forum, everyone. I'm not going to be posting as Mod Chrisso again in this forum area, so I just wanted to say thanks for being passionate about the forum and I'll be around on my forum choob (with the delicious name in the below post).

Have a great Christmas and New Year, everyone!

Many thanks,

Mod Chrisso
