    Fansite Questions

    Genuinely, there is precious little a fansite could do. I want to discuss topics and have input? Well, I find Reddit to be superior, because it removes the blight of egocentrism, as everyone is anonymous and unrecognisable. If I want to see a guide on how to do things, I would much rather watch something through Youtube or a VOD so I can actually see how to execute game mechanics, timing, layout and such. If I want facts, numbers and information, well that is what a wiki is for. If I want a community to chat with, I would much rather have a discord server or something similar. A fansite combines most of these into one, but there are a few major detriments to it: It is extremely high maintenance to stay competitive. It is an old and outdated form of information transfer. People do not take the time to read written guides anymore. It is slower than using discord/reddit, and often less informative than both, plus the wiki. Running a fansite for an immature population is a major pain at multiple levels. Fansites are usually an extremely poor source of information at higher levels of gameplay. For every skilled player, there's a "Hurr durr, dis mah advuce, I r 1337" wannabe, dilluting the discussion.

    Mark Your Calendars

    To be honest, that is on par with some of the jokes that were pulled in the past.

    It's time

    I mean, I do not disagree, but I assume it is just too late at this point to turn anything around.
  4. Well, that depends how many pieces you carve a body into, and how far you scatter them around to obfuscate the evidence of the deed. Some things are, quite simply, unsalvagable.

    Runescape is no more

    This goes with everything, be it RuneScape, or anything else in life. Sure, it is easy to look at old video games and think "Wow, it is not the same as it used to be", and true enough, the experience is different because both you and the game changed. The worst thing anyone can ever do is chase nostalgia, because you cannot ever recapture the experiences of old. However, if you go in with few expectations, and enjoy things for what they are, you usually fare better.

    Level 120 Farming

    Congratulations! Quite impressive feat that! I thought level 120 was supposed to be 200 million experience. Did they change that at some point?

    When regular party hats were not decadent enough, huh?

    Farewell to Sal's Realm...

    Oh yeah, you need a thriving userbase just to even have a Wiki up and running with frequent updates. A site, with guides, tips and tricks, would naturally fall behind a Wiki unless you have a very high userbase able to test everything properly. There is a reason why guides often took time to write, or required a dedicated crew of people to get everything done. Back in the IRC days, we were about 5-20 people regularily running around, doing certain pieces of a guide. Like, one would take pictures, one would do the writing, one would come up with solutions to puzzles and such, and it flowed pretty organically. It was what made update days so fun, because it was like the hive was stirring with energy and motivation.

    Life update?

    Then again, you do not need much planning to have kids! I know a lot of people from my year that ended up getting kids years before they were ready. Some, to be fair, are not even ready to this day. Children is probably a joy, but they certainly also seem like a prison. I think being grown up to want to "settle" down comes in many shapes, sizes and situations. What I would say is that, after settling down, I would say that "feeling the magic" is more about a state of mind. I find that one's definition of "magic" often changes, so my best suggestion is for you to look for what is magical to you nowadays, if you want to feel that... comfort, passion and happiness. I am doing well, yeah. I am bracing myself from the pre-Christmas rush with grading and assessing students, and facing the dread of 6 months of snow and ice during the darkness of winter, but at least the non-work parts of my life is going rather well.

    I skipped dinner today, but it just crept past midnight, and I am considering cooking just because I had a long rest after work today. Being hungry is a nuisance. I am dying for some really awesome food, but it is too late to order some tasty food. Argh.

    I swear, this course would have been at least 2 hours shorter if you had younger and more competent people that could multi-task, do the tech side, than these old relics.

    Out of all the ways I could spend this lovely Tuesday, I would never choose to spend the day attending a 7-hour online conference on the new Exam model. ...sadly, I did not have a choice in the matter.
