Poll - New Website Feature

For today's new Dragonstone poll, we're doing something a little different. We've got a number of new ideas for ways to improve our website - geared towards supporting the community - and we'd love to know which you'd like to see introduced.

RuneScape is - at its heart - a social game, and each of these updates is a way to help you connect, talk about RuneScape and share your favourite content.

There are four to choose from, and the one with the most votes will enter development once the poll is closed, with an estimated delivery date of September 2014:

  • Adventurer's Log: a completely rebuilt system from the ground up, making it much faster and more detailed. It would integrate closely with your Friends List, meaning more detail about what your friends are up to, a persistent feed of updates from your friends and the ability to share status updates and news of quest completion.
  • Hiscores by Country: a filter for existing hiscore tables, showing the country in which everyone listed is located, allowing you to see how you stack up against those in your part of the world.
  • Mobile Forums: a dedicated, optimised version of the Official RuneScape Forums for phones and tablets. Fast and easy to use on touch-screen devices, you'd be able to read and post on the go!
  • Live Stream Hub: a new section of the website focused on featuring live streams, accessible right from the homepage. There'd be an embedded Twitch player, an up-to-the-minute text feed of in-game events, and a list of featured community streamers.

All RuneScape members can log in now and vote. Just head to the Community interface and click the 'Vote Now!' tab.

Next week, there's another community-focused update on the way - free to play hiscores! Keep an eye out for more information, coming very soon!

How will you vote? Excited about free to play hiscores? Head on over to the RuneScape forums to let us know what you think.
