    Does anyone still play?

    I renew a couple times a year, and it's usually OSRS that sucks me in. Just too much has changed in in RS3 for me to be captivated by it, and my old achievements feel devalued when I open 2 free keys and get 200k exp for doing nothing.

    No Man's Sky

    Absolutely amazing game - I jumped in a couple years after the initial hype train with a friend and we had a hell of a time exploring together. We found that it's mostly what you make of it. It's an absolutely MASSIVE game, but you don't need to do everything, and you're not pressured into doing anything. Full disclosure, Steam says I last played about 4 years ago, so things have definitely changed. Maybe it got more intense, but I spent many a night exploring No Man's Sky.

    best chocolate

    For the sake of the poll: Dark > Milk > White Reality: Dark = Milk = White I just like candy.
  6. Opt-in PvP sounds like the type of Wilderness I would like. I never was in it much in RS3, but I spent a good bit of time in it in OSRS. I don't know if RS3 balances the Wilderness as high risk/high reward like OSRS does, but I'd imagine any "Wilderness bosses" or activities in RS3 would need to be rebalanced if the threat of PvP was eliminated. Interested to see if this has any impact on OSRS. That game just had a huge PvP poll fail yesterday.

    Podcasts

    History of Rome is a great podcast, he's done a couple good ones and wrote a book about Lafayette which is on my to-read shelf. Besides that I listen to a couple astronomy podcasts and Wheel of Time podcasts.

    "I can't believe you framed this. Love, Chaoss" It should be two lines, you choose where to split, color to be gold and sparkly, solid fill, medium font, 10 degree tilt with the right side lower, in the top right corner. I really can't believe you framed the other one, that's awesome

    Fansite Questions

    It's a great question. I see where it's leading, but I agree with Yuan, I think the era of forums has long since passed and there is no going back. That might sound defeatist until we look at why forums were replaced in the first place. One of the big reasons reddit is so popular is because it entirely changes how to carry a conversation with other members. You don't have to sift through heaps of comments to follow a thread. In a forum, if someone brings up an interesting point, others will quote that comment and continue the conversation down the thread chain. In a smaller community this isn't an issue, but if you're starting a side conversation in a main topic you're going to have other people commenting as well which is going to break up established quote chains. It gets hard to follow. On reddit, you don't have any issue with this. Spam/low quality/off topic posts simply don't gain visibility. If someone is trolling your conversation thread it just gets hidden a couple minutes later by a slew of downvotes. This way, you can carry on a conversation with multiple people in a singular thread and not have to search 5-6 pages to see everyone's responses. Forums are also not optimized for speed. If you wanted to browse other players' achievements in the olden days you'd go to Forums>The Screenshot Place>Achievements and only then would you be able to browse posts on this topic (which adds additional clicks to open the post and open the images if they're not embedded). It's nice and organized, but it's not quick. And you can argue it's too specialized. People like variety, so if they get tired of seeing posts about hitting 99s and want to hear about the latest RS update, now they have to start again at the main forum menu and find where that post might be hidden. Reddit fixes all of that, and the posts you see are arguably more interesting to you, because they've been upvoted by others who vetted them and found them interesting first. When clicking a topic in a forum you don't know what you're going to get, so sometimes you sift through dozens of low-effort posts before you find a topic you'd like to participate in. So, for content, reddit is vastly superior to any community forum. And for discussion, I agree with Yuan above. Discord is just quicker. People like things quick. Instant messaging on Discord will always beat slow posts on a forum. There's a reason people prefer messenger, WhatsApp, etc over standard SMS texts. Texts are no longer as quick as the other options, so they're becoming obsolete in today's youth. (Which sounds ridiculous to say, since I always thought texts were incredibly fast, but that's the way of the world).

    Runescape is no more

    Don't understand. RS is thriving, and I'm having a blast playing it.
