    March, the month in which we defeated vote bots!

    RSPS fans! We've reached the end of the month March. The month in which we have announced that we would be taking heavy action against voting bots and cheaters in general. Did we succeed? Yes, we did. In fact, the results are stunning. In just 23 days time we have manually: filtered more than 140.000 botted votes; filtered more than 13.000 votes made by multi-voters; banned 18 servers, whereof 8 were in the top 10 of the top RSPS list; unbanned 15 of those 18 servers, who're now using the top RSPS list without any forms of cheating. The average ban length was 5 days. One server has been banned for 19 days. Next to these amount of votes, our toplist has also automatically filtered an additional 80.000 suspicious votes. Amazing, but shocking numbers! The numbers of votes on the RSPS list are now more legitimate than ever before. In fact, there's heavy competition on the list. Servers are really close to each other and can outrank each other with just small numbers of votes. This is what a top RSPS list should look like! Entertaining, competing and honest. We're glad and proud that RuneLocus is the one and only RSPS list that meets those criteria. Of course we'll be continuing this work next month. The team has prepared for the monthly toplist reset. This month is going to start cleaner than ever before, good luck to all fair RuneScape private servers!

    Edit: more LOL. You have a vote bot service. http://www.professionalvotestore.com/buy-rsps-vote/ https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/need-bot.754541/ https://buyvotersps.wordpress.com/tag/vote-rsps/ http://abusewith.us/showthread.php?tid=616 https://www.sythe.org/threads/vote-bot-service/ http://network.ubotstudio.com/forum/index.php/topic/19494-i-need-bot/ https://www.facebook.com/ForeverPkers/posts/532615096779896 https://www.youtube.com/user/TheAdelka89 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K0WqetJaWpc Oops. Did we cause the customers of your vote service to chargeback their money because we're now capable of detecting your votes with a single mouse click? I suggest you to give up, cheating on RuneLocus came to an end. Move on to RSPS-List, cheaters are not welcome over here.

    It is not a secret that RuneLocus has died down considerably in activity over the years. To an extent, this is honestly expected considering the forum is based on a niche community and is acceptable; however, we've reached a point where the forum is sloppily maintained and the activity reflects it. To begin with, there should be a large reorganization of the current boards. There are some boards that are clutter and can be easily merged (as reflected here which should have been changed by now considering two admins check the site regularly) and we have a plethora of boards that are largely inactive, a couple being inactive for literal weeks. With how inactive boards are at the top of the forums, you are essentially advertising your inactivity. Newcomers will be extremely turned off by this, no one is going to want to be a part of a "community" that is largely inactive. Discussing specifically what should be moved, the RSPS Development section needs to be moved to the top below the RuneLocus section. This is by far the most active board and it needs to be advertised, not sandwiched by two sections that are inactive and are poorly organized which as a whole need to be merged into a single section. Web Development and Graphics Design are integral parts to creating RSPS, this is undeniable fact. You need artists to design your banners, pretty up your advertisements, handle any custom UI, and do art for the websites/forums/subreddit/whatever that has been developed by Web Developers and used as the basis for your server's community. These boards, especially Graphic Design, were once very populated on this forum in large part to this and I believe that these two boards do not belong at the very bottom of the forums. To add onto this, Graphic Design is an outdated term that by definition only alludes to the art used in advertisements. This board should be renamed to something all encompassing and more desirable, such as Digital Art. Another redundant separation of boards would be Media and Games. Both are inactive and neither need to be separated from one another to emphasize this inactivity. Video games are a form of media, they are not some sole entity that belongs in a section of boards at the bottom of the forum, especially when video games are going to be the most active form of media the majority of RuneScape players partake in. On that note, Computers should be outright removed with a Technology subforum added to Chat. There is nothing that is posted under Computers that can't be posted there while also encompassing all other general forms of technology. Introductions has zero reason to be a board of its own, this should be merged into Chat. I've used this phrasing quite a bit in this post already, but putting the incredibly inactive Introductions board--a board with a design that fundamentally shows off the activity of the forum--at the forefront of the forums is just so thoughtless. Also, regarding the RuneLocus board, Complaints should not have a subforum of it's own. It should be merged with Suggestions. Anyone who wants to mindlessly complain about the forums without being constructive should go fuck themselves, we shouldn't put their mindless banter on a pedestal and encourage this behavior. Requests and Other have no need to both simultaneously exist, Requests should be merged into Other. [Edit] I accidentally deleted the explanation for a change I made, so I'm going to put it in here real quick. Web Development should be renamed to Programming and encompass other forms of programming. A brief skim shows Java to be the most prominent language used outside of general web development languages, so it's logical for that to have its own subforum on a forum with a focus on RuneScape Private Servers. This change comes at the cost of Web Development's sub forums, but I believe having an improved Programming board would encourage more people to legitimately learn to code their own servers and their own sites as opposed to ripping open source servers and encourages a healthy subcommunity. In summary, the forums should look like this: This is a much more intelligently organized and compact forum that will show off what activity we do have, keeps all the boards that possess any relevance, and just isn't redundantly cluttered. -------------------------------- Preface for this section: There is no hostility behind what I am saying here. I bear no resentment for anybody, I have no reason to. I do, however, carry a strong emotional attachment for RuneLocus and what it did for me when I was going through very difficult times when I was younger. This forum holds a special place in my heart and always will. This section, and topic as a whole, is me addressing reality with all personal feelings aside. This is the fresh viewpoint of someone who has been gone for a long time, not one of bias, resentment, or lack of care. -------------------------------- Second, I would like to address the current state of staff. I already alluded to my opinion on the matter in my opening sentences, but it's lazy. The Graphic Design board is littered with threads that do not function properly, contains a sticky basically asking the community to do the staff's job for them when it comes to creating the SotM which hasn't been posted on a single time in years, and holds staff that don't even partake in the competition, create tutorials despite alluding to the community needing to do so, and seldom post art of their own. The RuneLocus banner is still showing the 10 year anniversary despite that being months ago and arguing that "hey man the whole year is our 10th year" is strictly lazy. The awards system currently in place does not do anything to encourage posting or active participation in the community. You created a thread in a board that, let's be completely honest with ourselves, no newcomer is going to read to announce rewards that appear in a tab on your profile that exists only to people who currently possess rewards. There is no showboating here, there are no real trophies here to show on your posts, there is nothing here to carry with you around the forum. This is a good foundation but a poor system as a whole. Replacing it/combining it with custom banners to carry in signatures, little banners under icons, special ranks, whatever it is, is a much better incentive. There is no public brainstorming or problem solving coming from the staff to show that they care, there is no activity in the VIP board to show that this forum's elite care at all to have a community, and so forth. It really just gives a vibe of "whatever happens happens, we don't really care" and this is extremely off-putting to anyone who may want to join. These are things that can be easily corrected, but it requires staff who legitimately want to participate in the community. I'm not asking for new staffers, mind you, I'm asking that the current staffers start enacting legitimate change and start taking steps to actually progress the forums. I apologize if this post sounds rude, but this is my honest opinion on the current state of affairs and I thank you for taking the time to read it assuming anyone does. [Edit] One last thing I thought of last night that Arix brought up in his comment below which I would like to piggyback on. A community Discord server is something that needs to be heavily considered. The shoutbox is a great idea that theoretically provides a utility to form a closer knit community via active chatting, but Discord does this better. First of all, Discord is simply far more convenient than the shoutbox. I don't use the shoutbox frequently because I don't want to keep RuneLocus up in my web browser constantly whereas I, along with many other people, already have Discord up constantly. I used to not mind the shoutbox back when the site was active, but that's because I could chat there while commenting on threads and starting new ones. This obviously isn't going to be the case for an inactive RuneLocus, at least not for someone who doesn't partake in private servers. Second of all, Arix raised a great point with having a custom bot that can answer frequently asked questions. The Discord is not going to be used by people who just joined the site and want to be posting only a thread or two, but it will be used by people looking to join a community and bots are excellent for helping this. They add another level of interaction that the shoutbox will never have, one where music, FAQ, top private servers, whatever it is can all be accessed on the fly. Third of all, being able to spice the forum up with more means of interactivity is great for making the forum appear more healthy. From a layman's perspective this seems pretty whatever, but to any staffer this should be incredibly appealing since it encourages more activity. If you have an active community that seems fun then people will want to stay, that's all there is to it. I can understand if this would be on the lower end of the list of concerns, but it's one that should absolutely be kept in mind. -------------------------------- Supporters and Noteworthy Replies: Arix's support and elaboration (reply of my own clarifying this is a matter of public relation and activity, not behind the scenes matters) Azeem's support StevenAbraham's support and exceptional summary Grey Goose's support

    Addressing the inactivity

    Summary of his post for anyone to lazy to read: Re-Organize Boards More Staff Activity Community Discord Here is some of my insight on these topics Re-Organize Boards Every time someone suggests this, everybody acts like it's a huge job and such a big deal. It's not. IPB makes it extremely easy to re-organized boards. "But we just re-organized them!" Who cares? Are you afraid the two active members have gotten so used to it that they will leave if you move them again? More Staff Activity We understand the staff can't be on RuneLocus all day. But sometimes the time it takes for things to get done is absolutely absurd. As much as we like to rip on R-S mods, at least they are actively making progress in some way or another. I've got my own critism on some of the staff, but for the sake of being polite, i'll omit that for now. Just know that RuneLocus isn't run as well as it coud be with the resource it has. Community Discord I've been one of the most active members since my registration date. I feel like I got a solid grasp of what goes on around here. Even I had no clue we had a discord till like a month ago. ^ Thats how little we advertise our discord server. For reference, i'm in several RSPS Discords with over 50+ members. None of them advertise more than just a forum post on a respective forum. We don't even have that. How sad is that. We are a FORUM that doesn't even have it's own post about it's discord, let alone a sidebar or something. I imagine how much more active RuneLocus would be if we had made a discord like Raw Envy's the first week he launched it. That shit was lit and active as hell. All great suggestions, but it's only a start. A lot needs to be done around here to revitalize the community. We act like it's already dead and it's only a place for old members to show up every few months and remind eachother they are alive. That's not the case. It doesn't take much to be better than Rune-Server, but by the looks of our memberbase, we can't even pull that off. When I first got into RSPS, I chose RuneLocus because from the looks of how the community was run, I figured that it would be the one to stick around. It's not like some injustice happend and all the people just happend to go to rune-server. You got lazy, and slowly stooped down to there level, all while RSPS was the biggest it's ever been.

    Webdevelopment Services and RSPS Services both fall under the new RSPS Marketplace. Having three sections for essentially the the same thing is confusing. If I am selling webdesigns for RSPS, where would I post it? When you go to delete the board, it should give you an option to move all the topics to a new board.

    You're really talented man and you have some awesome ideas, but you gotta stop quitting and restarting like this. Don't rush your projects, take your time and wait till you got a finished product. When you loose motivation, instead of going awol, hire a supplementary developer to make up for your losses, or at least notify your players that you're going to be taking a small break. There's nothing wrong with that. I really had a lot of hope for HDPvP. With someone like Tom on your roster, you finally had a solid player base to make a good PK server and Tom has the skills to keep that community growing. Just because he slows down doesn't mean you have to. You don't need to spend 40 hours a week developing this thing for it to be a success, but you can't give up. Pace yourself and don't quit every time you are tired of developing. I really really hope this works out for you man, and I accually think it can be a great success. Best of luck!

    1. Create a new document, write some text. The font used here is "Cinzel" but any trajanesque font will do. 2. Right click your text layer, click blending options and add a bevel and emboss with these settings 3. Now add a drop shadow 4. Next add a gradient overlay 5. Finally a faint stroke 6. Next go to google and find some metal/grunge texture and place it on a new layer over your text, right click the layer and click create clipping mask. 7. Finally set that layer to overlay There you go, you saved paying $10 for someone to make this for you.

    While RS isn't as big as it once was, it's not like they don't have new players coming in. RSPS isn't dying, it's just growing much, much slower then it used too. That combined with the fact that I do work for multiple servers, means I can make some decent cash. It's not like i'm rolling in money or anything, but I'm doing better then if I just got a job as a cashier or something.

    Has anyone tried learning Swift?

    I found it a pretty easy and powerful language, much much better than the Objective-C you had before. Proper static typing and lambdas are awesome! One thing that kinda irked me was that the language was constantly evolving, introducing breaking language changes. So you had to update your code to be compatible with the new version (although Xcode did most of the work) every few months, but this is becoming less of a problem as the language is getting more mature with Swift 3. One other thing that really frustrated me was that, while you can develop your whole application in Swift, you could not leverage most of Swift's new features (like generics) since UIKit and the Interface Builder in Xcode are still written in Objective-C. Trying to create a generic user interface component (read generic class) in Swift and using this component in the Interface Builder resulted in the compiler silently failing. Also, when creating complex expressions in Swift, due to the way typing works in Swift, the application would compile very slowly (with the compiler sometimes even failing). To solve this, you had to break this expression up into multiple ones. Although it is possible to run Swift on Android, there is currently no bridge to Java, so developing applications apart from maybe a simple hello world app, is not possible yet.

    Here's a little game I am working on in J-query/Javascript. Right now its just functional and nothing real special. Made this for a project in my class. ec2-54-203-25-155.us-west-2.compute.amazonaws.com/project7/index.html Link is an amazon web services link. The project is uploaded to a virtual server. (also if the game is not full screen the score will hide behind the road I am currently working on a fix for it but the current state of it meets the requirements for the project so I am mainly just showing this off because its my first post in a long ass time.)

    I personally think that we should strip the title rule, @Ziek` @Cart. With so much servers being online these days, the only actual way to stand out is by promoting the server's special features. If they don't do so, people simply won't click on it. In the past (as in: the time we made this rule), advertising with just a server name was enough because people would click through every single ad they saw. But that just doesn't work any longer, so I do agree and think that we should strip this rule and let people use their creativity in thread titles to promote their special features and stuff like that.

    Agreed. My only criticism is your evaluation of the awards. I will admit they could definitely look cooler, but I think they are a good incentive. People don't have to look at the information booth thread to find out about them. They just have to look in any thread that someone with an award has posted in, and between Arix, Cart, and myself, that makes up pretty much every thread.

    SOTM April

    [MASSIVE EDIT: Original post pictured here. Split up the posts, one will be going to the Suggestions board.] A key problem regarding the Signature of the Month in general is the lack of incentive to participate in the competition. Fundamentally, the competition lacks any real reward. You get a pat on a back, an archived voting thread, and a extremely minor award that becomes displayed on your profile on a tab only available to people who have awards. Newcomers will not be aware of this tab assuming they don't read the thread about it in the Information Booth which, let's be honest with ourselves, the majority of them will not. People take up artistic skills for expression, to have a talent, and to create things that will impress and attract other people, and the reward for the SotM should reflect this. Not to mention that this is a dead board that we are trying to revitalize as a whole, we are going to be banking on newcomers entering the competition, not veterans. It's important to understand this because this means that the rewards have to be all the more obvious, something that a newcomer can see without viewing threads in the Information Booth and say "Damn dude, I want that." As of this moment, the best suggestion I have would be to create a subforum in this board that only the SotM winner, having a special rank that reflects this victory, can exclusively create threads in. This is a board that will be dedicated to their art, a place where they can post all that they want about their art whether it be tutorials, behind the scenes, tips, or simply just showing off. It'll be the Winner's Gallery. This appeals to artists greatly because it massively plays on how badly artists want to show off their works and their desires to impress people. It puts their art on a pedestal, it's their time to shine, and is a deserved reward after a month long competition. In regards to the theme, the Freestyle theme should not be used. Period. Freestyle is nothing more than a theme for people to post their attempts at creating their best works, there is no incentive to broaden their horizon or leave their comfort zone. This heavily discourages new artists from competing because realistically, the best of an inexperienced artist will never be able to compare to the best of an experienced artist. Also, it's important to keep in mind that with a theme as broad as freestyle, the votes are heavily influenced by bias. Even if one signature is objectively higher quality than another one, the poorly designed signature could win purely because it's in a style that the majority of people prefer. Having a streamlined theme (ex. glitch, smudge art, abstract, fantasy scene, cyberpunk, music) eliminates a lot of this bias and gives all artists an opportunity to compete on a more familiar playing field while developing their skills as they leave their comfort zone. Lastly, it is of my harsh opinion that staffers that will not enter the SotM have no place moderating the Graphics Section or possess the Graphics Leader rank (this was an ignorant understanding of the GFX Leader rank, the rest is still valid). This competition, specifically when it was the Signature of the Week, was a large reason the graphic section was as lively as it was when I was actively a part of it because lots of good artists would post in it. This competition should be representative of the section as a whole, it should represent what this subcommunity is capable of, and it should not represent the distance between staffers and the artistic community by them not offering art of their own. The staff are the backbone to the forums, they are the driving force of how active and progressive a community is. If they are not going to participate in the competitions that their boards create, contribute to the board in the way of tutorials or critique, and keep inappropriate stickies while letting the both the Tutorials and Resources section be littered with dead and completely broken threads, then it reflects poorly on all of us which removes a lot of life from this competition as a byproduct. If staffers want the board to be active again, then they need to take steps to make it happen, not wait for the community that they're supposed to be the backbone of make it happen.

    SOTM April

    Some insight: I accually would have appreciated a theme. Even if everyone didn't follow the theme exactly, it would have been nice to challenge myself to include a certain design element or color scheme. I don't find much enjoyment in making tags like this, but I like challenges, and I probably would be more inclined to participate if I didn't have to think of an idea from scratch. You might think no one would participate if we had a theme except no one participates anyways. Plus you can always just make the theme optional, problem solved. Also even if nobody participates this month, lets not give up and stop. It's not like it takes much effort to post a thread, and instead of "rebooting" in like 6 months, we can say we still have a SOTM, the participation is just inconsistent. In fact, if you're to lazy to post the thread every month, i'm pretty sure you can get a bot to do it. If no one posts in a particular board in a month, it's not like we delete the board, we just wait till someone feels motivated to post something there. A lot of people here said they would have participated, they just forgot, myself included. I think part of that is that we didn't have as much publicity as we did the first time. There was no notice, no people posting it in the shoutbox every 10 seconds, nothing, just this lonely post in a board way at the bottom of the forums. I think we should add the notice back, and as a community we can take the initiative to remind fellow members to participate. As Ziek said, I think some basic tutorials could really help people out and get some of our community who doesn't usually participate in this sort of thing, try it out. The problem is, some people are just a lot more talented then others will ever be, just due to length of experience or professional training. I accually don't have a solution to this one, but you guys are smart you can figure something out. I hope since we have a small community, people will give it a try even if they aren't being competitive, just for the funsies. Just out of preference, in the new thread, we should post last month's theme and winner, and mention them. For starters it will remind last months winner that SOTM still exists. It also helps us appreciate the winning entry for longer than a few days between voting and the next SOTM thread. Lastly, It will make this thread more colorful and appealing, and psychologically make us want to be apart of it.

    Having almost a month to get an entry ready allows me to procrastinate to the point of completely forgetting about it. I think we need more in this section than just a monthly competition. We need to find people willing and able to make tutorials and maybe teach people. Something to draw more interest.

    Hi, I've decided to return to what I once loved being a part of - RuneLocus. I joined RuneLocus in 2008 and I was on it every single day up until it devastatingly lost all its data in 2010(?)...It sure saddened me when that happened, and I'm sure many others were saddened by it as well. I joined RuneLocus in 2008 purely to gain knowledge and learn the basics of programming (mainly Java). I created my very own RSPS just months after what happened to RuneLocus in 2010. It lasted just over 7 months and had an active playerbase of 70-90, which had sometimes peaked at 100 during the weekends. I had to shut it down and move on as I had to focus more on life at the time. I've still been lurking RuneLocus as a guest since 2010 - not very often, but I have been. I have, however, been lurking a lot more since the beginning of this year and I have been wanting to properly be a part of RuneLocus like I once was, so I finally decided to re-create an account. I'm extremely glad to see RuneLocus is still going after all these years and everything it has been through. It for sure seems a lot stronger now than what it was before. I still recognize many names, haha... ...I'm 22 years old, and from the UK. I like video games, listening to music, writing, helping people, and learning about history (there's a lot of that). I'm a huge movie fanatic - you name it, I've seen it. I like to discuss and review movies, so you'll most likely see a lot of that from me. My passion is definitely the forum environment, because I do enjoy building conversations, and different camaraderie with people on them. I work at a warehouse as a Supervisor/Team Leader full time. When I'm not working or at home on the PC, I'm normally with my girlfriend or at the gym. Oh, one thing I forgot to mention that I like, is travelling. My lifetime goal is to visit every country on Earth. I started playing RS in 2004, but I stopped playing it in 2013. I only played OSRS for a few months after it got released. I do, however, go on RSPS' when I feel like it. I don't exactly play them, I normally gain knowledge of them and then share my own ideas to the Owners to help them improve their RSPS. The main thing I do is find game breaking bugs, which I then report to the Owners, of course. Anyhow, that is all. Feel free to ask me anything down below.

    Sorry but honestly they look like full name initials. You should probably have your friend edit the original reddit post and have him give you permission / confirmation.

    functional languages are cooler than you

    Lots of these types of FP languages tend to be academic. Racket specifically is typically used for programming language design and even AI/ML stuff. It's mostly about the concepts though e.g. Clojure's persistent vectors, Redux, libraries like Ramda or Underscore, streams, lambdas, and tons of other stuff modern languages such as Java and Rust have inherited.
