  1. Pretty straight forward, paste your CTRL-V. I've seen these threads on other forums and they can get really funny fast. Don't post your CTRL-V if it's against the rules. Here's mine: [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LTs2wZ30Z0Y&index=69&list=PLD15A95D4A6CD2457[/url]
  2. Hey, This is what the Runelocus website looked like on December 28, 2010. Below are some screenshots of the website and what not. I used the web archive to find these. Homepage: Forums: Some Members: Toplist: Some servers: Websterscape and Runemyth was the shit back then :( Good days.

  4. Hey, So would you spend 1 whole year in prison for 1 million dollars if you were ever given the chance? It'd be an average prison, you'd be given food everyday, a place to sleep and all the other things a prison is required to give you. Some Pros [LIST] [*]You get a million dollars [*]You get free food [*]You have time to work out and read [/LIST] [LIST] [*]You could become someones bitch and get raped. [*]You could get killed [*]You could get really bored and want to die [/LIST] Vote on the poll above and let me know in the comments below why or why not you would do this?
  5. Hey, I'm looking to hire a C# developer who is capable of making automation software for websites. You need to have a decent understanding of C# and know how to incorporate things like NetSeal and other licensing programs to the software. If you're interested please message me on Skype "fingerpod" or post here. We can discuss prices depending on what projects I have you doing. Some examples of things that you'll be doing are creating bots to auto post on websites and adding proxy support and multithreading to increase speed. Thanks, Envo

    ISIS Discussion

    [CENTER]ISIS Discussion[/CENTER] ISIS is a big topic in today's news so I figured I'd create a thread to discuss it. Basically from my understandings they have over 40,000 people strong now and have beheaded two people. CNN posted a great article 10 hours ago giving you the facts. [url]http://www.cnn.com/2014/08/08/world/isis-fast-facts/[/url] RT.com article about ISIS [url]http://rt.com/news/166836-isis-isil-al-qaeda-iraq/[/url] What do you think about it? Do you think we're going to have to go to war with them or what?
  7. Going to try to save up for a 2010-2014 camaro. They're amazing cars can do 0-60 in 4.8ish seconds and have a top speed of 155 miles an hour. This is somewhat what I'd like it to look like. [IMG]http://files.conceptcarz.com/img/Chevrolet/Chevy-Camaro-Black-DV-09-NAIAS_0014.jpg[/IMG] Going to need a decent stream of money to get this within a year although I'm very dedicated and want to make this happen.
  8. Hey, 8 or so months ago I started mixed martial arts (grappling and a little kickboxing) every week I see myself progress and grow stronger physically and mentally. Every week I'm much further skill wise then I was the previous week and it's become second nature to me. It's made me more respectful and surprisingly much less aggressive person. I used to be a really angry person and would look to get into fights, ever since I started mixed martial arts I don't look to start fights, and if they do come up I'm able to end them quickly. I also love how fighting and mixed martial arts is universal. When someone writes a book or writes poetry they're limited by the language the write it in, in mixed martial arts it doesn't matter where you come from, what language you speak and what your past is. This thread will be dedicated to tracking myself and hopefully be a log for myself of my accomplishments. [B]Upcoming Events[/B] [LIST] [*]Competiting in October in a grappling match.

  9. What tattoo would you choose if you could literally get any tattoo for free? The rules is that it can only take up one part of your body as the maxim size. Meaning if it's on your arm it has to stay on your arm. This would be my tattoo. [IMG]http://loudmeyell.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/3D-Tattoo-for-Arm.jpg[/IMG] What would you want?
  10. Hey Runelocus, We've recently decided to start doing blog posts more often on the homepage as this is the first thing a visitor sees when they enter the website. We also think that it can provide an enjoyable experience if visitors can go through a variety of content ranging from Runescape Memes to news about private servers. Some of the ideas we have are Runescape Meme Mondays and once in a while we may do a server review, we will have news about servers, such as a big server closing down and generally content that will spark discussions on the blog posts. What would you personally like to see us post? We'll be taking all suggestions and chances are if your idea is decent we'll use it.
  11. Hey, I'm looking to partner up with a developer for business related things. You'll need to know a programming language that is capable of making automation tools. Languages like Java, C#, Visual Basic and a few others will be fine. You need to know how to make GUI's and add various elements to the program. There is serious money to be made and if you're interested then let me know via PM or post here. Thanks, Envo

    Panic At The Disco

    Hey, I've been listening to a lot of Panic At The Disco, anyone who likes pop punk/ punk rockish type bands like Fall Out Boy should defiantly check them out. [video=youtube;uBtH2YlNiNc]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uBtH2YlNiNc[/video]
  13. What's your favorite Eminem song? I never really listen to him but his album recovery is dope. [video=youtube;5h9_L98H84U]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5h9_L98H84U[/video] What's your favorite Eminem song?
  14. For fucking sakes, this has to be the biggest joke I've seen. First you had a RSPS with 20 staff members in which you recruited staff members for 3 months, now you're starting a company with a 900,000 investment. You're a troll, startups with some of the brightest people in the tech industry have trouble getting 900,000 and I doubt anyone in there right mind would give you 900,000 let alone $1. Stop making a joke out of yourself.
  15. [quote name='Clayd']I know this is a grave dig, but just letting everyone know I did join the Army, I've been in for almost 2 years now. Stationed in Fort Hood, Texas. My MOS is 11Bravo which is Infantry. Haven't been on this forum in years haha. If anyone has any questions about joining the Army just PM me.[/QUOTE] Hows the overall experience? I've been thinking about joining and am taking the ASVAB test next week. I'm currently a Junior in high school.

  17. Basically a rich guy created a social network where you have to pay $9,000 just to join and then after that $3,000 more a year in order to stay a member. [url]http://www.vice.com/read/this-guy-is-creating-a-facebook-for-rich-people-917?utm_source=vicefbus[/url] By the way, the whole thing runs on Wordpress What do you think about this?
  18. Hey, I'm working on a project ( [url]http://superhostingcoupons.com/[/url] ) and I need 20+ webhosting companies to get this website off the ground. What I'm asking of you guys is to give me links to reputable web hosts so I can compile lists of coupons for them! Thanks, Envo
  19. Hey, So the realization just kicked in when I looked at the date that summer is almost over.. Late night outs are over and school starts for me in 18 days or so. I'm going to do as much as possible in these 18 days but summer is coming to an end. When does everyone else start school again?

    2nd 6 Weeks [WIP]

    Really liking this style, nice job.
  21. What would you spend it on? Who would you donate to? Who would you give it to? How would you live your life? I'd personally buy a medium sized house, something that an upper middle class family would have so around $900,000 or so. I would then create an underground garage that is air controlled and buy 30-40 sports cars and then store them down there in perfect condition. I would also donate a lot of my money to various charities. I'd mostly do the same stuff that I'm doing now but I'd like to travel more. What would you do if you get 100,000 dollars everyday?
  22. What's the best forums software for a RSPS? You may be asking yourself this question when working on your Runescape Private Server. In today's age we have hundreds of forum software solutions each one offering different features. With all the different forum solutions how do you choose the right one for your situation? Are you looking for something more user friendly? Something that looks professional? Something that can integrate and connect to your RSPS with ease? We're going to give you a few possible forum solutions and some information to get you started! vBulletin - $249.00 When people are looking at high end forum solutions they most likely run into vBulletin first. This is said by many to be the most popular and most functional forums solution in the industry. It has a large amount of themes, plugins and modifications to go along with it so it makes it extremely easy to modify to the forum owners taste. All this will cost you $249.00 for a brand new copy of vBulletin. If you're looking for the mobile suite bundle, It's going to cost you 399.00 but this will give you added functionality and allow your website to not only run smoothly on desktops but mobile devices like the iPhone as well. For someone who has a Runescape Private Server that is just starting out this may not be the best solution, a lot of people look at illegal nulled versions of vBulletin but this is very dangerous to do. Often when people null this software they add backdoors that allow them to hack into any website running the nulled version very easily. Not only will this be a pain for you but you're putting your players safety and personal information at risk as well. If you have the money, vBulletin in a great solution, if you're short on money keep reading to check out some of the free solutions. Invision Power - $175 Invision power was initially created in 2002. It didn't really start to gain popularity until around 2009. This is when people started to realize that vBulletin wasn't the only solution when it came to high quality forums software. A lot of people are drawn to Invision Power due to it's sleek design and a admin friendly control panel. Due to it being user friendly for both the users and the administrators it's a very popular pick when it comes to forums software for Runescape Private Servers. Starting at $175 for the self hosted license it's around $50.00 cheaper then vBulletin. The price difference alone draws many new customers to this solution. Additionally they have different apps you can purchase that will give your forums more functionality. Just like vBulletin you're going to want to stay away from any type of nulled versions of Invision Power. They've been known to have nasty backdoors that give hackers a way to get into your website. Invision Power maybe $50.00 cheaper then vBulletin but for many people it's still too much for the average person starting out, next we're going to go over some free forums solutions. MyBB - Free MyBB is the most popular free forums software, the development team is constantly working hard to bring the users security patches and updates. The support forums is very active with a constant stream of people submitting new plugins, themes as well as modifications daily. The support forums has nearly 1,000,000 posts as of May 21, 2014 which just goes to show how active and dedicated the community is to making it the best open source forums software around. The free price tag gives you no reason not to use it, you don't have to worry about backdoors being added. MyBB has plenty of free themes and a whole part of the website is dedicated to sharing themes, plugins and modifications. MYBB is a very good solution for Runescape Private Server owners who want to have a good forums but aren't ready to shell out hundreds of dollars for it. Simple Machines Forums - Free Simple Machines forums is another free open source forums solution. In the most recent years it has been loosing popularity in the Runescape Private Server community but it's still a good solution for anyone who is looking for free forums software. The forums has over 3,000,000 posts which show how active it is yet but we're afraid to say that SMF peaked in 2008-2009 and the website traffic and statistics just go to show that. Even though the glory days are over for SMF the amount of themes, plugins and modifications for it are absolutely ridiculous. Anything that you can think of, SMF has a plugin and or modification to do that. The user and admin interface is outdated, but still easy to use and overall it's a solid piece of software. Missed One? So what is the best forums software for a RSPS? It all comes down to personal preference, everyone likes a different solution which is why we have so many different types of forums software. If you think we've missed a piece of forums software feel free to let us know in the comments.

They can then save up their referrals for a wide variety of things like free donator if you can't afford it, advantages in the game, exclusive items, and so much more!

  24. I'd be down for a Teamspeak, let's see what others think!
  25. A few years ago people didn't really explore different advertising method and techniques for their RSPS. You set up a mediocre looking website and threw the server up and then you where done. These days being in the RSPS industry is a very competitive market, with that you need to beat your competition in every way possible if you're looking to get ahead. Who doesn't want to get ahead of their competition? We're going look at how you can make use of modern social media to advertise your RSPS. The Basics To start, you're going to want to register a YouTube, Facebook, Twitter as well as Instagram for your RSPS. Feel free to register on other social networks but these are the 4 main ones that you're going to use. You generally want to fill out the bio, add your website link and make sure you have a catchy profile picture and cover photo. This does wonders and will show people that you're professional. I'd also recommend to add a box onto your website where it tells people to like your page. If you're not a programmer you're in luck as a service called AddThis has done all the hard work, all you do is input some information and it gives you a code to place into your website. They also have a bunch of other tools to get you ahead in social media and we'd highly recommend you take a look at all of them. Now let's get into some specifics for each individual social network, shall we? Facebook Everyone between the ages of 5-75 has heard of Facebook, it's extremely popular and has millions of visitors a day. Facebook decided they wanted more money so they made it so that every time your page posts something only 4-6% of the people who like your page see your post. This makes advertising on Facebook very hard, Facebook should mainly be used to post updates, you're most likely not going to get many players from Facebook unless you have an already large player base. I'd recommend to post on Facebook once or twice every few days. Instagram Instagram is all about photo sharing. Millions upon millions of photos are shared on Instagram every week and it's a very powerful advertising tool if done correctly. You're going to want to create a Instagram for your RSPS post once a day. Post updates, news, little video clips and more. Make sure that you make use of hash tags and use hash tags that are relevant to your RSPS. You wouldn't want to put #food if you're trying to get new players for a RSPS. Instead use, #runescape #rsps #gaming #pcgaming and stuff like that. Make sure you interact with your fans and go like other gaming pictures as well. You'd be surprised at how well this works. Twitter I think of Twitter as more of a news source then anything. On Twitter you can post smaller status updates once or twice a day just letting the players know what you're doing. Just like Instagram you're going to want to use #runescape #rsps #gaming #pcgaming and other gaming hashtags, get creative as well! Post small snippets of code you're working on, images of new updates, let people know what's coming this weekend and inform people about future events. Twitter is your friend! YouTube YouTube is often overlooked yet it's probably the most powerful advertising solution as far as social media goes. YouTube can be used to upload your promotional videos, keep players updated and even upload player made videos. If players on your server are PKing and making videos offer to upload there PKing videos to the official channel of the server, in return you can throw a link to there channel in the description. YouTube is a very powerful advertising platform and shouldn't be overlooked. If you're going to use any of these social networks I'd recommend YouTube as being the most effective. Conclusion Remember, stay persistent. Try to have a schedule in order to keep track of when you post, use social media tools that allow you to post on multiple social networks at once. You should be taking advantage of as many of the tools you can as people created them to make things easier. If you have any questions, concerns or comments let us know in the comments, we always like hearing from the community!
