zybez has been dead for awhile
Large, resourceful Wiki sites and Reddits are like the Walmarts that have totally eclipsed mom-&-pop sites like Zybez
that's funny to read because its not true at all. You were just an early entry into the market, like other "mom and pop sites." Your only relevance is that you got on the web early. There's 2 reasons people prefer reddit (community votes on what posts get recognition) for discussion etc and wiki for guides. One, is that (contrary to ur analogy), they're more specialized websites. Reddit is for posts, wiki is for guides/game info. Zybez and fan sites like it are more like the "walmarts" in everything but success. Also, those websites are not only specialized, but also standardized. You can view the wiki for osrs or for any other game and the layout and rules are the same. Reddit is largely the same too, except the rules for posting might be a little different (posted right on the front page). Back in the day players had to go forum to forum and learn the rules and the community if they wanted to participate in it. No one cares to do that anymore because they don't actually value a generic website "community."
Basically everything zybez offered had a better alternative, other than CD which will certainly find a new home (probably on SB). Glad to see zybez go so that CD can move to a better moderated site.

So long, everyone.
Thank you for being such a welcoming community.

I never really used Zybez, but I made this account because of how popular the website was. Now that it's going, I feel it is befitting to at least login and post something.
Posted 15 August 2018 - 7:49 PM
Will be missed. I can't really tell why so many clans just stopped using zybez, I think the format was a major thing but personally I like it this way, but the staff, specially in clan discussion exhausted everyone who remained here, not so heavy was it was but still theres alot corrupts around.

The fate of these forums would be the same even if you had your "dream" mods. Poor moderation did not contribute to the bulk of the decrease in activity. Any forum that once saw similar or even a fraction of the activity of these forums, is taking a massive hit too. Just how things are in 2018 as most already know.
Was a good run, I think anyone who was involved in clanning would know of RSC (I mean Zybez, but I don't like the name Zybez, sorry). I'm sure lots of people had their fair share of enjoyment out of here even if it was just for the OSRS price guide pre-GE, so thanks for that.

I still remember how good I felt when I finally received my +1 from Apollo all those years ago on RuneScape Community as this place was then known.

Always remember walking around London the night before Runefest 2010, talking to who I thought was just some random guy about the price of bacon until
Me: "What's ur rsn btw?"
Me: "... aren't u like... the leader of Zybez?"
Been here 12 years - lots of good and bad memories, including:
- Finding my first clan here in 2006
- Fighting for RSC in the Multi-Site Steel War 2 in 2007 (lagged out, got bsed)
- His Lordship making me request my own 6 month suspension for flaming EoS to death (totally worth it)
- Getting +1 warning points for good behaviour
- Getting -1 bombed while leading my own clan, by the clan I would later also become leader of
- Winning a caption contest
- Getting Exclusive twice
- Getting +v in #cdrsc for a brief time
I'd like to have seen a conversion to something to rival SB or a forum equivalent to 2007RsHelp instead of closing, but it is what it is.
Thanks for the fun, friends

Was a great run guys. Thanks for all of the work you all put in throughout the years, this site was like a second home to me for a very long time.

Thanks for the memories. It's been a fun 12+ years for me.
