    Yuanrang is admin

    There was a moment of viewing a topic. I saw this flash of orange as my heavy eyes scrawled over a post. "Ah, Lilshu, probably," I thought. I continued scrolling, quicker and quicker, when I spotted the letter Y. Confusion set upon me quicker than lockdown gripped the world. Finally, I rested my eyes firmly on the text I had so absentmindedly scrolled past. Yuanrang, Forum Admin. So strange to my eyes and yet so familiar. The man I know, perfect to take on such a task, albeit years later than it should have been, finally, where he belongs. I don't know if congratulations are the best word to describe the scenario you find yourself in, but if one man can and will wear the metaphorical hat, it is wise that you are that such man. Well done, I am sure you will maintain the ship whilst it sits in the dockyard.
  2. Feel free to post them in here as you find them, I just think people should be aware of some of the cool stuff you can now do in these forums.

    Vendetta

    I downloaded photoshop because I felt like making something... It's been a while. I guess I now have a forum signature. Absolutely love V For Vendetta so this was a no brainer for me to make something like this. I actually half followed a tutorial to use some different techniques because it's been a while, obviously always got to take my own spin on things but it was interesting see what other people did. Edit: That awkward moment when your signature cannot be your signature because it's too big.

  4. You see it happening everywhere. Market stalls, turned to shops on the high street, turned into supermarkets which progressed to online shopping. I don’t want to count the amount of times I’ve said “don’t worry I’ll just prime it here for tomorrow”. Even fan sites like this one. Everyone had their niche and an audience to boot. Then over time we’ve had the rise of the wiki and reddit, massive platforms to overthrow and merge the audience. Everything is the same as well, especially online. You can only really have two options. There is a third but that’s not really what people use. Google and bing, Amazon and eBay, Microsoft and Apple. Samsung and Apple! I suppose these are my questions: Do you think this will continue to happen? Will this behaviour of monopolising the markets ever stop? Do you think independents, smaller business and organisations might ever have a resurgence? Is there room for smaller companies, websites and the like to grow and thrive with these conglomerates bottle necking everything? Do you think people will ever get sick of the systems we have in place now? What do you think is the next big step?

    Retro Gaming

    Do any of you do any Retro gaming? Last year I went out about bought a load of PS2/PS1 games. I'm looking to get a SEGA Megadrive, probably the N64 and some other stuff. Eventually I want like a gaming room, that's just got like tons and tons of different gaming stuff in it. I'm thinking about building an arcade machine at some point too because that would be awesome. Been playing some old PC games too. But namely my favourites as a kid. Digg Dugg, Pandora's Box, Simon The Sorceror, Monkey Island.. Maybe you go back further than me, with things like Commodore's and the like.

    Time or money

    What is more valueable to you? Time or money? In some cases time is more valuable, perhaps because time allows us freedom. In some cases money is more valuable to be able to purchase things. In a few cases your time is your money and every minute wasted is money wasted. Just thought it was interesting to see what people valued more in their life. Personally I value money over time, I see that if I make money now, i'll be able to retire early and have time to enjoy later on. But I have been taking more steps recently to give myself more time because nothing is gauranteed in this world. Another way to look at this would probably be, you could live your life poor and have all the time in the world or you could be rich but have no time to spend that money.

    Manipulation

    Manipulation is everything in your life, whether you do so consciously or not. As a child, you would cry to manipulate the feelings of your parents or guardians for your gain. It is our choices every single day that defines us and make us who we are. We manipulate our lives and the lives of others for every reason there is. Whether it's a small hint at work for the promotion, tipping the waiting staff, or even as mundane and mandatory as washing ourselves. Personal hygiene makes us more approachable, and thus we are closer to the manipulation of that person. Sometimes we manipulate others for our gain. We see the opportunity to make something happen, and we seize it. Sometimes we manage others to fit our narrative. We even do it to help other people. Manipulation is considered to be a horrible thing to do. To be manipulative is to control or influence others and yet I cannot see a compelling argument that it doesn't or shouldn't exist within every single one of us. I've recently been talking to my ex-fiancee. Who will control the narrative of a conversation by refusing to speak and ignoring important questions to then fire blame at me for making assumptions about her attitude amongst other things... I make such assumptions based on the facts I have presented in front of me; it would be rude to say I was always right because that is very much untrue. Seeing as I feel I'm being manipulated right at this very second. I thought it was poignant to create a debate on whether or not you consider manipulation to be a good or bad thing. Would you consider it to be more right than wrong, more wrong than right? What crosses the line between the two?
  9. Interested to know if anyone's in the beta and your thoughts on whether you'll use it and if you think it'll be a success. Also, do you think Jagex are prepared for the world of mobile which will be as susceptible to cheating as the regular game? I can only assume they're working to make sure people can't cheat but I can't see all of their preventative measures working. I'm personally looking forward to playing on the go. I think I could manage the game in that capacity, whereas sitting down and playing it just isn't my thing. Especially when there are so many other games to play. This probably leads into more discussion about the portability and with the successes of the nintendo switch I can see why mobile would be a good way to get people interested. Although I do think if Jagex start gearing Runescape towards mobile users you will see even more micro-transactions and casual gaming examples.
  10. Interesting that it's pretty close! I like that origin for your name. I wish I'd done the same for myself, but hindsight is a fickle thing. Much less attractive, but I think I just used to go with what I thought was "cool". I don't think I'll ever be able to remember all the names I had, but here are the ones I remember, tribal dragon boy, lord Pixma, Osiris, Unknown and finally Fatalysm. I thought Fatalysm was interesting at the time, and I described it in my mind as the act of being fatal. Almost like it was a religion or something. I quickly found out that people just shortened it to Fat which is both hysterical and reasonably accurate. I can't remember if I've ever been in trouble with you. I've been in situations a lot on here which you'll almost certainly know about, but hey, that maintains that intelligent persona I've built around you. I believe that's just it though, my opinion of you is more informed from the role you played as a moderator. There are countless examples I could give of topics and posts you've made, which also make a point of your intelligence, but I would hazard a guess that most of the formed opinions I have regarding your militant style do come from your role here. You were dealing with thousands of children at varying stages in their life. Yes, you may have had to be stern and pedantic but what matters and what I've always seen is that what you're doing and have done is to make this place better for everyone. It's challenging to know the gap. On one side, as you mentioned, does someone who oversized a signature deserve a ban? Perhaps not, but the leniency makes the rules irrelevant. In my opinion, you were right to stick by what was said and done, and it did make for a more enjoyable community. People making a sport of harassing people and testing how far they will go? Well, yes, unfortunately, I know first-hand on here how that feels. I feel like I probably unfairly did this to others as well. Certain people loved bullying me over my online persona. I took it personally—some of that hurt. But then I used to bug the heck out of forum admin/moderators and distinguished members back in the day because I felt like I deserved recognition and power. So I'm not entirely innocent. It ties into what you were saying about immaturity and repressed emotions. I always wanted to be the big hotshot. As a young teenager, I never wanted to feel inferior, and Sal's Realm was where I felt valued where I didn't get that so much at home. Once I started to feel like I was 'somebody' on here, that twisted into wanting to go even further. Do you think your friendships suffered? Would you ever reach out to any of them now, or have you done? Is that something you regret? I don't mean moderating as a whole, but not fully expressing yourself with that nagging thought in your mind that you might have to present yourself differently because of a role? Heck yeah, I'm a titan. I may have visited the old invisionfree forum once or twice, but this is going back past 2005 and my memory of being 12 years old online is rather vague, to put it politely. That's such a sweet way to put it, all these people we miss, care for and remember dearly. I think I've found a softer side to you already. Wow! That's not something I knew! Probably just as well I'm finding out about it now, and not ten years ago, my ego would have been even further out of control! I'm honoured and astonished that you have respect for me. I feel that I did try to improve and learn, and that's something that's stuck with me and is probably more relevant now than it was back then, but It's all about the journey of how you get somewhere. For me, art was the only thing I ever felt good at as a child. When I started getting into GFX and photoshop, I was 11 years old and taught myself everything. I had a steep learning curve. Some of the people here are, even to this day, miles beyond what I can do creatively. It's them that spurred me on to be better, in a sense. Also, I seemed to have this awful trait of wanting to be the best and most recognised no matter what the cost. Hey, I'm about seven months away from hitting 30, and it's like the worlds come crashing down. You aren't boring; you've changed my dull afternoon into a fantastic read. I got a notification through and smiled! I get you. Once those big goals from your youth get done, you realise that actually life continues. Not that you need my advice, but something I thought about recently is that yeah, sure, we're all getting older and settling down, but that doesn't mean we're incapable. Sometimes you've got to take that leap you would have done as a youngster, other times not so much, weak hips and that. Have you had a rough time with exams and everything considering what's been happening in the world? Wow! dungeons and dragons! I love online events people are doing and certain shows on twitch and youtube. So interesting watching people create these characters and get creative within a ruleset to have a dungeon master layout a story. I'm in a pretty good place now. I won't bore you too much, but basically, I had a child with my now ex. She up and left after birth and took my boy. I was self-employed, running a pet shop for a while, and doing good, but eventually, the rent and rates just got too much for this small town. I had to deal with having no credit and being almost homeless. Anyway, now that's out of the way, I can honestly say that I'm doing great; I'm in a full-time job, looking at going back to self-employment, I've been off anti-depressants and just dosed with vitamin b12, and that's made my life so much easier. I got my motorbike license, and I'm now driving around in my dream car (Subaru Wrx Sti). I'm also looking to upsize and relocate, so that's something too! Honestly, it couldn't be going better. You hit the nail on the head. Always striving to be better and creative but getting bored and then trying to reinvent me. I've suffered from anxiety and depression since I can remember. I used hobbies to fill my mind with anything but what was going on, which still happens to me, although less frequently. I would dive into projects headfirst and, hopefully, see them through. I just wanted to do something. When people started liking what I was doing, it started well, but it quickly changed into this desperate search for validation. That's why I would constantly reinvent myself and probably why I mentioned wishing I could delete old topics and posts. I consider myself to have evolved from what I was. I need to appreciate the journey more. I always felt like I wasn't the same person and had something new to achieve—for example, tribal dragon boy, my oldest name. I didn't know what forums were. I typed the way that I talked and asked the most basic questions. Reinvention happened, lord Pixma. I discovered pixel art and gfx on here, and I wanted to get involved and make my mark, but I felt like people didn't like everything I posted. So there was a reinvention, Osiris. He learned from all the previous two's mistakes and started to get involved with gfx, but I'm pretty sure I ended up developing a warn log for some trivial stuff, and I felt like people didn't like me. So I come back as Unknown, another reinvention. I'm staying away from GFX a little bit this time, but I'm still getting older, learning and growing. By this point, I feel okay, but I want everyone to know who I am. So I have to let go of this identity crisis. Eventually, I own up to my old accounts. At that time, I've reinvented myself as Fatalysm. I was still immature, still power-hungry, and it all came from this idea that I just wanted to be liked. Perhaps if I'd spent less time wanting to be liked and trying to fight my way to the top, I could have just made more friends. Anyway, I do like to master things and move on. Or at least master them to a point. I've always been the same. When I sold carpet, I made sure I knew everything there was to know about carpet. Right now, it's the same with power tools. I learned those back to front with photoshop and illustrator, and adobe suite, even though I don't use most of them. I taught myself how to create websites and use HTML/CSS and some PHP. I don't know why I do it; perhaps it is to fill the void. I was never content to leave anything, though. It's like the website design for this place. I've done like 4/5 different designs since that one because I always feel like I can do more. I never did make a career in graphic design. After three years of college, I told myself that I liked creating things for fun. I didn't want to be pinned by the will of a customer. It just took all of the fun out of it. In a way, I stand by it. If you don't enjoy something, why are you doing it? I never wanted the graphic design to annoy me because it was always there to fill the void and stop me from getting down. Having said all of that, I've used my skills throughout my adult life. When I went self-employed, I built my e-commerce website, and when it came to running the shop, I did everything from the design and layout of the shop, the colours to the pos, logo, posters, shelf-edge labelling. So It's served me well. There are strong ties, and there are some reasonably deep connections, but I feel that because I was so young/immature/self-involved, I didn't take the time to get to know everyone as much as I should have. I feel that I missed out on an opportunity to have a better social experience. That said, I wouldn't change growing up online on here for the world. Even the people that may not have treated me exceptionally well still helped me become a better person today. If I could change anything, it wouldn't be the forum so much as it would be myself. If I had been content in posting and being happy, this place would have been much better off. You got stuck with me! Sal's Realm taught me about community. It taught me about knowing more about the world and being able to connect with people genuinely. This place changed me. When I started here, I was 11/12 years old, and I played Runescape with my brothers, but I didn't have any friends, and I wasn't delighted in life. The people I met in real life didn't always vibe with me, and I spent a long time getting bullied. On the other side of it, on here, for the most part, everyone was charming, and this is what I would describe as my family away from my family. I could get lost in the forums and talk to like-minded people. This place kept me in check as well. When I got too big for my boots, people quickly brought me back down to earth. Sal's is where I'm at my happiest, where I share the best memories and where I learned who I would become! I feel like I've been writing for 3 hours, so I'm just going to stop. It's cool getting to know more about you, though! Do you still play video games when you can find the time?
  11. For myself, I've added in as many people as I can manage at the moment. The dilemma I faced is that everyone on here is pretty much deserved to be on that list. I could have gone the safer route of not listing anyone, but I live in this fantasy world where I believe some of the people might get an email notification and see their name pop up and get some real joy reminiscing on here. By far the worst thing for me is not getting to know everyone on a deeper level, but then again I wasn't exactly mature and I was incredibly self-involved as a teenager. As well as that, I had old accounts on here that date back to 2005. (Don't worry I got temporarily banned for that). In a way, I'm glad that most of the people from then have no idea who I am now. I'm glad to have connected with so many people over the past 16 years, the only issue I have with it is that I can't edit out the awful behaviour of my teenage years. But hey, that's what growing is for and people on here helped me to do that, which is awesome! I did start by writing notes about people but even that felt off. It's nice and all, to give back those shared memories but then, how is that fair to the people that are still here. To completely go back on what I just said, I thought this might be a fun time to build some kind of connection. @YuanrangIf you ever want to chat I'm down. Since the beginning I considered your name to be Yuan or Ewan. You always come across as super-intelligent with an almost militant strictness which is something I've always respected about you. I don't know who the titans are, I'm guessing it's something to do with the old sal's realm but since that's something I associate with you, you are now a titan. I feel like we are probably very different people but I think I probably respect you more because of that. You seem like a cool fellow, how do you do? Oh in my mind you look like Auron and that's just your permanent look. That's head canon. If I wake up banned my experiment failed.
  12. IF YOU WANT TO SKIP BACKSTORY, IVE ALL CAPPED IN BOLD WHERE MY QUESTIONS AND OBSERVATIONS START I don't know how many of you are boxing fans but recent events have left me perturbed to put it lightly. For those who don't know the situation, it starts with the undefeated Tyson Fury. Tyson Fury was coming back from a kind of retirement. He had previously defeated Vladimir Klitschko on November 27th 2015 to become the heavyweight champion gaining the WBA, WBO, IBF, IBO and Ring Magazine belts and lineal championship. Since that fight he got into numerous amounts of trouble, ballooning in weight, taking drugs and partying. Something he would later attribute to mental health and depression. In the time that followed Anthony Joshua climbed the ranks of the professional game. Securing himself the titles which had been vacated and obtained by other fighters. To this day, Anthony Joshua holds the WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO belts, although he did briefly lose them to Andy Ruiz Jr. The last part of the puzzle for Anthony Joshua is the WBC belt. Now, it should be said that boxing isn't all about belts and there's a discussion to be made that having so many belts is just preposterous but that's a different conversation altogether. Speaking about the WBC belt, that belt was held by Deontay Wilder. Wilder is regarded by many as one of the most powerful puncher's in boxing history. Wilder held the WBC belt from 2015 until 2020, losing in a rematch to Tyson Fury. At this moment in time, Anthony Joshua is yet to fight either Wilder or Fury. The latter two have had a fight in 2018 which ended officially as a draw, although popular opinion is that Tyson won the fight. The rematch saw Tyson brutalize Wilder to a TKO finish in the 7th round when Wilder's corner threw the towel in. Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury signed for a trilogy of fights. The popular opinion at the time was that Deontay wouldn't sign the rematch clause because of the beating he took in the second fight, however, Wilder did sign the rematch clause. Then disaster struck. COVID-19 put everything on hold as we know. By October 2020, Wilder's rematch clause expired. Tyson Fury's promoters decided it was time to move on and arrange another fight. Wilder's team decided to pursue legal action. In the meantime, Anthony Joshua defended his titles against Kubrat Pulev and anticipation was building for a possible bout between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury. With both men holding the belts this would mean unification, something that hasn't been done since 1999 by Lennox Lewis when he fought Evander Holyfield. After 5 months of back and forth between the two parties, the fight for Tyson Fury vs Anthony Joshua was signed, they were in a contractual agreement to fight. The fight that fans wanted to see looked unstoppable. Yet Wilder's legal pursuit of arbitration was still in the background and as of the 17th of May, he won the arbitration. The arbiter ordered that the third fight must happen by September 15th 2021. This decision comes two months after Fury and Joshua signed for their bout in August. In a record time (in my opinion), it took only until the 24th of May to sign the trilogy fight. That's only one week since the arbitration was resolved, compare that to the 5 months it took for Fury and Joshua to sign. Anthony Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn made remarks that I'm going to loosely quote here. Going on to say that he doesn't think Fury's team ever wanted the Joshua fight. How does a fight get signed so quickly? Also being promised that the arbitration wasn't going to succeed. Now Anthony Joshua is likely to fight mandatory challenger Oleksandr Usyk. So that's where we are now. IF YOU DONT WANT BACKSTORY, SKIP TO HERE. Does Deontay Wilder deserve his trilogy fight, it was in the original contract? Should Bob Arum and Eddie Hearn not have signed pursued a new fight? We can assume Wilder's fight with Fury will not make anywhere near the same amount as he would fighting Joshua, should Tyson have vacated his belt/paid Wilder off? It's come to light that the trilogy fight could have been called off in December, but it wasn't. Was there foul play by Fury's side to sabotage the Joshua fight? I don't know all the answers but I know that boxing is nothing without the fans. In my opinion, this damages the credibility of Tyson Fury. This is unfortunate because by all accounts he is the booking favourite. I believe it was very smart on Wilder's part to wait it out and get the fight. I don't like his tactics and I don't particularly want to see a third fight, but I can't argue that he didn't deserve the fight. For me, if he comes out and shows a different fight and potentially wins, I will be very happy but if he gets flattened by Fury again I will be annoyed that the pair of them have wasted our time. Right now, I want to see Anthony Joshua fighting either man. The only person we haven't seen beat is Fury, so the build-up was obvious. We have the best versus the best. Then we have this fight with Wilder vs Joshua which never happened because of Wilder. Here's what I want to see happen in the next fights. Fury wins against Wilder Joshua wins against Usyk Joshua and Fury re-sign contracts. Then we get some fighting between Ruiz, Wilder, Usyk and Dillian Whyte. Somewhere further down that list Joe Joyce. What do y'all think?

    Vendetta

    I've grown so old now and I think it's just this realisation that even though my picture isn't watermarked or something I'd really care about someone stealing, I'm now in this headspace that everything should be credited, for the people who put in the efforts. Also I kind of like the idea that in a couple years someone might see this thread and think, lemme see what I can do with those assets. You're definitely right about V being flat. I should probably have messed with bokeh and depth of field, adding more effects over the top. One mistake I made was adding the original V render over the top of everything I'd done and simply lowering opacity before colour grading etc. I think If I'd taken the render to a lower opacity, added in some foreground and blurred it out a little it would probably been better. After I added in the V for Vendetta logo I was sat at my desk thinking... I know, I'll make it a 3D space and have him interweave in and out of it. For about 0.2 seconds I was like...."Yes, I'm a genius." Then back to immediate mediocrity. Space stocks ftw. You should just do some stuff! Edit: Here's the psd, incredibly simple stuff. https://www.dropbox.com/s/51l35yh5wjc3jxv/Vendetta.psd?dl=0

    Let me post pls

    I can't speak for @Sobend or @Salmoneus, but I imagine that the site will likely never come back. I'm always interested in doing things for the site/forum but at the end of the day, what we have is an archive, a history of what was a huge fan site and forum. I know that Sobend puts effort in on his end which is commendable, but I can't see this place being revived. Fansites died to the wikis/reddit/discords. Forums have also slowed as a medium that people use, live updates and fast content has changed the way we use the internet. The actual site CMS is accessible by @Sobend and others I am sure, but sadly from what I understand, it's largely outdated and isn't really fit for it's purpose. Besides all of that, the site and forums still belong to @Salmoneus and I don't think anyone really wants to move this site on without him. This site is what we know of him and has a whole community and history that all starts with him. I think if you ever want to go ahead and do something, go out and make it. I personally created a website that was a similar idea called Realm Of Runescape but back then It was this idea that I could port the site into an upgraded wordpress cms and integrate everything there. But at the same time, it lacks the foresight that realistically, nobody wants another runescape fan site, so long as the wiki's survive. If you were to ever run a successful website, you need something the Wiki's and reddits don't have or you do it so much better that you can carve out an audience. (Excuse the clickbait title ) We're all old men and women here now, holding out as the last bastions of a time gone by. Something really funny I just read, people are using the site as a guide for old-school runescape because the pages haven't been updated for such a long time. Tragic but also hilarious.

    Opinions on Forums vs. Social Media

    It's an interesting topic. If anything, I want to be as far away from social media integration as possible. But that's where the market has unfortunately gone. That's what gets the eyeballs. I agree that Reddit is going to have more problems the more social media is integrated. The thing I don't like about Reddit is that as that anonymous voice you are just part of a community within a community. You can post in a smaller subreddit and your stuff might be seen, but not by a large audience. Or you post into a larger subreddit and you get completely ignored. Also, it's not like you can go to a specific forum within a subreddit. If I want to ask a question about something, I've got to find a different subreddit with a different set of rules and get ignored there instead. Forums are too slow. I agree with that, something that I think developers should have been quicker on is loading content almost in real-time. That's where social media thrives, serving content as it's posted. They are also too involved and separated from the main product. For instance, Sal's Realm for a small number of people was this community. But they forget that the behemoth behind it was the archive of Runescape data. You have to want to engage if you find a forum. The whole client thing, I just think that's the only way you could operate a successful 'fansite' in 2021. Realistically you can't ask people playing Runescape especially to stick around in a forum whilst they play the game when they have everything offered from a website inside a client. The only things missing from that client is the community aspect. We have clients like Runelite that have approval from Jagex, they use open-source code and offer a decent amount of benefits that Jagex admits they just can't develop in the same timescale. To be honest, you hit the nail on the head with Discord. You can set up different chats for different topics, it's easy to communicate in, it's fast and it has the social VoIP/private messaging side. It's got less structure to it, but that's a benefit to its useability. You can already get discord integration within third-party clients as well. Ironically, there is a discord plugin for the Invision community as well, but I can't see why you'd want to split a forum between the two. Your forum members would just jump to Discord. I was reading a topic about that, they didn't know whether to shut down their discord because their paid forum was dying to it. EDIT: WE HAVE A DISCORD, Well now i know.

    Opinions on Forums vs. Social Media

    What I want to see is a crossover between social media and forum. Reddit but more social. Something that was cultivated here was a random connection between strangers and a forum topic setting like reddit. Social media is great for your immediate friend groups and people who live nearby, but you don't have the same shared interests. But if you were served content on a feed, in topic/image/link type formats with the ability to interact socially with an easy to use messenger and interaction between users was a bigger thing... I think that would be the only way forums could ever be partially revitalised. Nobody cares but could you imagine if Sal's had it's own runescape client with a built in social feed/discord type scenario. Everyone playing runescape is now using wiki's and quick guides or quest helper plugins etc. Guide style sites and forums along side them can never really exist anymore. The internet has come too far. The proliferation of content and knowledge is just so expansive and well documented. Gotta be said though, i've never found a runescape community outside of this one. I'm not faffing about with reddit.

    Banned for Gold farming

    Something that you might be able to discern is whether or not it's an account ban or an IP address ban. Also since you mentioned you've been inactive, are you the only one with access to the account or could your account be compromised? If you contact Jagex and could verify that you are the account holder and you offer them information such as your broadband provider current and previous and your IP address they might be able to look into your account. The easiest answer would be to start a fresh account. Whilst it's frustrating to have lost your progress, the fun and enjoyment comes from the game and not the cape. I recently started an old school account under the name Fatalysm and I have 7 stats at level 60, a couple that are getting close to that as well. My plan is to level everything to 60 and then start questing which is something I really enjoy from the game. I also have an RS3 account called Fatalysm with greater stats and a significant amount of the quests already completed. But RS3 doesn't hold the same charm and in my opinion it's been butchered by microtransactions and cosmetics. If you do end up playing again, feel free to add me, I'm usually skilling but I'm not bad at flipping and stuff either. I'm in no way an expert on RuneScape anymore but I'll always lend a hand.

    I would like a New Signature Please

    Searched google and got pretty jiggy with it. Crazy how much is still online really!

    I would like a New Signature Please

    Yeah I’m like 90% sure that was Beeboy. There was a time where that kind of pixel art Simon the sorcerer-esque style was massive among the Runescape Fan Forums. Then Adobe Photoshop CS2/3 came about and it moved to cartoon style and small gif signatures. Edit, look at this one!!! ———————

    I would like a New Signature Please

    When I saw you were doing that, I was thinking to myself “I’ll make him a temporary one, because that signature is gonna take a wee bit of time.” Perhaps a drawing would be easier? Do we try and get AnonJoe and Andyana back? So lost on these forums these days!

    Well here's the thing. I didn't follow your brief, it's been a long time since I attempted a signature or really anything that used imagination in photoshop. Here is something created for you at 3am. It's at least, runescape...related? Use some blur, change some lighting, create a render, use some C4D and then some smudging and hey presto, it's a signature
