Hello,

We have decided to shut down Zybez's RuneScape Help website. With the rise of RS Wiki, a website being maintained by tens of thousands, the shift from fansites to Reddit/Youtube and towards the official RuneScape site, in-game guides/help, and other reasons, we found it difficult to compete with, maintain, and keep up-to-date our RuneScape Help site. Rather than keeping the ailing beast online and keep confusing players with outdated information, we have decided to put it offline.

So, what remains online:Also, with this announcement, I want to thank all the people behind-the-scenes who contributed to and kept Zybez RuneScape Help updated all these 15+ years. I want to thank all the people who believed in it and became active members in our community. It has been a wild ride since 2001 but now it's the right time to put it to rest. The age of traditional fansites is over.

Zybez will always have a place in my heart. I loved being on the content team when I had the opportunity. Along with being a DJ for the radio. Thanks for the memories :wub:

Sadly I doubt anyone really cares, as you said fansites are a thing of the past really.

But I think you should put an archived version of it up for old times sake, waybackmachine isn't as good and a disclaimer at the top of the page saying it's no longer updated should be good enough to prevent confusion?

I'm sad but at the same time this was coming for years. I had fun tacking on little corrections here and there and nailing spambots.

Sadly I doubt anyone really cares, as you said fansites are a thing of the past really.

although I do have to wonder why not keep a version of it up for old times sake? waybackmachine isn't as good and you're already paying for forum hosting, makes no sense to shut it down completely.


Twitch purchased curse a few years ago and the acquisition went into action a few weeks ago. They likely didn't want something so out of date on their brand so that's when the plug got pulled. Speculation, but pretty safe.
