Spearmint30said: Going forward when the glue does come off this thread, there is a link to the Rules of RuneScape in the footer of the website (all the way down, below the copyright) for reference.You know what would be awesome? A temporary in-game message when you log in to let you know that the Rules of RuneScape have been updated, which is a big, important change that affects every single player that's logging into the game. Right ?
Yurplesaid: How does this impact the forums? I know that previously the rules have been quite lax on links to fansites etc. but what about signature links and and clearly promoted sites.
More specifically I'm referring the blatant spamming of certain discords links, primarily in the Item Trade forums. I've asked about this in the Forum Review thread and Mod Kari stated that she and the other Forum Moderation team would be looking into this.As far as I am aware, if you believe that a signature is breaking the rules, you are more than welcome to report such instance(s) to Forum Help V3. Forum Moderators and L-Mods ("CMs") are capable of editing signatures here on the Forums. I know that you said that Mod Kari informed you that they were looking into this, but until we get a response to that query, you may raise your concern to Forum Help V3 and have a moderator decide if the signature is rule-breaking or not.

Though, with that said, there's nothing that says they wouldn't do the same with an in-game message pop-up.This is exactly where I thought it'd fit best. As you and I know for sure, not everyone is going to read it, but one thing is for certain: the outreach in-game will definitely be higher than posting on the Forums or not posting at all, right?
