Sucks to see it go after being a huge part of rs for so long. I guess all good things come to an end.

VR closes and then Zybez shuts down a couple months later.. coincidence? I think not

 

In all seriousness though I remember using the Zybez website a lot when I was new to the game so thanks to all those involved with its development & maintenance - RIP

Thanks to all the users who made Zybez great.

Indeed, I too enjoyed using Zybez when I was new to the game. I enjoyed reading all of the guides and all of the sections on the website. Great memories.

As the game evolves, so must fansites. Unfortunately Wikis ended up being the winner.

Shout out to all those who worked on the site in the past. You've done amazing work.

It's kind of weird that I only really started participating and being really active when this happened lol, still serves as a place to discuss the game that we all love with a bunch of cool doods

It's incredible to think that a couple of talented teenagers and young adults built an empire that included: a top tier help site with an abundance of guides and calculators, a complete website editor accessible by team of global volunteers, and a large community forum that grew exponentially year after year. Zybez took the game one step further and provided users with the unique opportunity to be a part of something bigger than the game itself. A bunch of users went on to careers in tech-related fields because of their experience working on the content team, all thanks to W13, Ben_Goten78, TheExtremist, No1, and everyone who built and maintained Zybez throughout the years.

Zybez has been the most beautiful of websites in my life.

And I genuinely mean that - I actually have a word document with the basic Zybez background/text colours, and I base most of my essays on that.

 

Beautiful people, beautiful website.  All kings have to die.  But the best are remembered; the best live on in the hearts of their kingdoms.

We love Zybez.

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But I think you should put an archived version of it up for old times sake, waybackmachine isn't as good and a disclaimer at the top of the page saying it's no longer updated should be good enough to prevent confusion?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 can assure you that for me, fansites are NOT a thing of the past; I actively use www.runehq.com, www.tip.it, RS Wiki, and Sal's Realm(a bit less than the others); where the hell do you think I got all the help I needed for quests such as 'Mourning's Ends Part 2', and 'Plague's End'?!

As for Zybez itself, I will probably still continue to use the 2007 R.S help, but I recommend either committing to keep that updated, or simply scrapping it also. They are updating RS 2007(aka OSRS), even if the updates aren't as wacky and/or varied as RS3....

Wow, I never thought I would see this topic.

 

Like many others, I have grown up on this forum (kind of). It is sad to see the fansite of it go and it does feel like a hurtful breakup.... Zybez had the best guides always... I guess it's another sign of the changing times...

 

Thank you to everyone who worked on the fansite throughout the many years!
