As you know, these forums are closing and being set to 'read-only' mode. Many people are satisfied with an end like this, but for the many who don't want to say goodbye (to a forum like this), here's the next place to go:

 

RuneScape Community

https://runescapecommunity.com

(Hosted by yours truly)

 

Made to look and feel like a classic version of these forums back when they were called "RuneScape Community". Sometimes simplicity is beautiful:

For those looking to remain in touch and don't care for the forum model, you're more than welcomed to drop into our Discord.

 

So there you have it. Now you have options so you can't complain :-)

Honestly, no. The staff is only going to be less involved within the community and with moderating the forums as visibly demonstrated the past 3 years. This has been a great community for the past 10-15 years, but just like anything else the torch should just be passed at some point. Honest opinion you shouldn't run a new site

People need to move on from the old way. This only promotes seclusion when its the exact opposite of what we need to do. I highly suggest people register on the new RSC but don't use it as a platform for discussing the clan world like we used to.  

 

We need to stop being a secluded community and find a way to merge in with the real runescape community. The clan world will be more sustainable when the audience of our fights are all of rs players. Let this way of clanning die and we can find a new one.

I see it as a just another format for discussion for those that want it. We've (the clan scene) already begun utilising twitter, the subreddit is there for any clan to make use of (although Christy mentioned it's more for PKing in general than clans) and a forum just adds to that. I don't think it promotes seclusion at all.

A lot of people expressed an interest in keeping the site going and this is just a response to that imo. If people don't wish to use it no one's forcing them to but it's there for the people that do.

I dunno I just feel like staff involvement is proportionate to community activity. For instance I held an event a couple months ago, and literally nobody signed up for it. It's not like there is a torch to pass on, people will go where there is discussion and people have tended to gravitate over to reddit and discord for now. There is still a remaining interest in the old forum format as evidenced my the amount of people that asked for something moving forward. At the very least it doesn't hurt anyone lol

Staff haven't been set up yet but I can tell you there's a lot of current staff who aren't interested in moderating a new forum. The load time issue seems to be on your end, it loads in less than 2 seconds for me.

Glad to see it'll still continue in a way. I've already signed up. Do you think you'll be adding a dark or mid-toned theme? I'm 95% sure the theme you've got in use now has a mid/dark one available.

 

 

Zybez concluding is still relatively surreal. Not so much because it ending is unexpected, but more-so that it's been a part of my life to some degree for so long now that I've taken it for granted. Good to see a forum will still continue on :)

Security is important. And that's something that I'll be keeping in mind going forward. If somebody really wants to grab your IP, they often can with things like access logs from remotely hosted avatars, pics, sigs, etc. If you're worried about your IP address and you're somebody who is likely to be targeted, I highly recommend using a VPN.

 

The new site is using HTTPS, so it's already safer than Zybez in that regard. Of course, there are many other things on the wishlist: using better encryption for the password hashes, blocking remotely loading pics, etc, and hiding IP addresses from moderators (currently there are no moderators anyways).

It lives! I guess you couldn't pass up the chance for your baby to live longer... 

 

It's going to have a different atmosphere - I see it as a place for more casual discussion. Like Kelly, I'm definitely looking forward to a dark theme.

To  be fair, I could not care less if this extention of what was is embraced or (probably) not by the clanning community. I've enjoyed this site for the friends made and topics created on issues that are often off topic: there have been some brilliant discussions from talented members (not claiming to be one) that really grabbed my attention and therefore love for the site. Perhaps that will be the case again, perhaps not... but I'm pleased the chance has been put in place.
