Since Friday we have seen over 160,000 votes and growing in support of bringing back Old School RuneScape servers.

Congratulations! The team is already hard at work restoring this service for you and we hope to be able to let you know when they will be up and running ASAP.

However voting appears to be slowing so it’s very much up to you and your friends to determine the ultimate level of investment for this service as well as any potential membership fee.

Members votes decide the ultimate destiny of Old School RuneScape. Remember: everyone who votes will get their first month of old school RuneScape for free, regardless of the poll outcome. So, register your vote and encourage all your friends to do the same!

We will be hosting a forum chat on Wednesday at 8pm GMT. This is will be your opportunity to ask the team anything and everything you could want to know about the plan for the return of OId School Servers.

In preparation for this live discussion, we will be opening up a specific thread tomorrow for you to post questions to the team. This will help us to get the best members of the team to answer your questions.

Again congratulations on the return of Old School Servers, and if you haven’t voted go to the poll page here.

It feels weird they posted at this time. Either they're eager to release this or they want to continue building hype and motivate people to vote.

Clearly votes are slowing down as they don't have many members . Morons they are at times lol.

Yeah I expected news after voting ended. I doubt we'll reach 750K votes, I thought that seemed a bit steep.

I'm not paying $20 a month for it, so hopefully we hit 250k+ or whatever.

I think they expected this to go as fast as it its. I'm glad it's on the front page now.

If they made F2P accounts made in 2007 able to vote, I bet we'd reach 750k votes in a week.

Did you miss me?

I can see their urgency to reach 250,000 votes...if you think about it 250,000 votes will most likely make Jagex more money. $15 @ 50,000 to 249,999 votes, not many peope will pay that. But at $5 a month from 250,000 to 499,999 votes I'm sure more that 3x the amount of people who would've paid $15 per month will play and pay. So actually reaching 250,000+ votes makes Jagex more money in the long run.

Has anyone else noticed the box that comes up when you login, talking about 07 servers coming back and asking people to vote for it.

I don't quite get why they don't let ex-members or old F2P accounts vote - I appreciate that they think it'll generate more income to have people sign up to vote...but at the same time they could possibly alienate the old servers by having them be too costly. Bit of a gamble, really.

I'm still optimistic it will hit 250K... I can't see it going further than that though.

Well, we've got until the first. Let's just pray it'll get that far.

With way they're going, they'll open it up to f2p voting when there's a week to a few days left.

I worked out earlier that it's going at about 30 votes a minute atm...it's picked up more than it was yesterday or saturday tbh. If you take a 24hr day (1440 minutes) it adds up to 43,200  votes per 24 hour day, 10 days to go so potentially 432,000 more votes if it stays at 30 votes per minute which I doubt. I'm curious as to how it has gone from around 20 per minute on saturday to 30 now, but since Jagex have posted it on Facebook and in a popup when you login that would make sense. It's at 168,300 now so effectively we only need 81,700 more votes in 10 days which is plausible in my mind, even if the votes per minute does drop significantly.

Hopefully 250k+ minimum, else 15$ would be to much for the vast majority.
But hell, 500k would have been way better.

Even if I'm not even planning to play 2007's RS :P

You can tell that they're really pushing to hit 250k.
The vast majority of users wouldn't pay $20/month and I'm sure that they're aware of this.

EDIT: They added the poll to the front page and it looks like it's paying off.

Nitromanic is correct. I did a 10 min test run on the poll a little earlier. The results were 32 votes per minute. That's +10-15 votes per/m over the last couple days. If we could maintain this rate.. 250k level 2 would be smashed and there's also a decent shot at 500k. Stay positive. * fingers crossed*
