Things got off to a bang with the announcement of April's Member of the Month, which was revealed to be Cypher! Congratulations and thanks again for your great posting and hard work across the board. Credit must also be given to the runner-up, Jaddy, third-placed Blackenese, and the other finalist - Renkotsu. Keep it up, everyone!
There was also news that the Content Team's leaders PZ and Josh Hogg were given the opportunity to visit Jagex's HQ to preview the upcoming release of RuneScape 3! PZ wrote up a preview of the newest installment of RuneScape based on what we saw at Jagex's release event, and who they got to talk to. Receiving one-on-one interviews with Mod Mark, Lead Designer of RuneScape, and Dean Ollive - Head of Content. They shared some good information about the upcoming release, and PZ and Josh were even allowed extensive hands-on time with RS3 itself. So, make sure you check out the article here.
Meanwhile, given Old School RuneScape's success - the staff at Zybez and RuneScape Community have, in their efforts to provide its growing player-base with the guides, tips, and general information, were pleased to announce the release of 2007RSHelp.com! The site contains all of the same guides, databases, tools and calculators, as Zybez did back in 2007. However, 2007RSHelp comes with a brand new homepage, allowing easier access to the site's, and the Zybez communities', top features.
Despite all the optimism, though, we must take time to pay respects to Scoobyninja, who stepped down from all his positions on RSC. A key member of the Achievements team and proactive Moderator - his enthusiasm and work-ethic will be sorely missed by all. Thanks again for everything, Scooby!

Have you ever taken a look at our Suggestions forum? Home to many of the forum's most creative minds past and present, posted ideas (especially those featured in the prestigious Hall of Fame) have even been implemented into the game in some way, shape, or form. So, what did May have to offer then?
- Well for starters - aqarwaen's Small Gnome Restaurant Update aims to add a creative twist to the beloved minigame.
