But with the new (old) servers, this is no longer a problem. The only problem we are facing is this:

This is a graph of the Google search interest for "runescape". I believe it to be a fairly accurate analysis of RuneScape's popularity.
RuneScape has been around for over 12 years. As we all know, keeping a game active for that long is an incredible feat. But I would not be satisfied seeing it die off now. There is nothing I'd like more than to get onto the 2007 servers, and experience how things used to be. But that can only happen if there is enough interest left.
My question is this: Can you see RuneScape regaining popularity? If not, what change of events do you believe necessary for that to take place?
My theory is that updating it with some brand new, some already established (in previous RuneScape) changes will give it the best of both worlds - the game will be close enough for the people who used to play to get excited, and dynamic enough for interest to not die out.
