  1. "a lot of change will come to RuneLocus" :cool: Sounds good.
  2. Seen you moving up the toplist; good luck. ;)

  4. [quote name='Ikiliki']I see no reason to increase the file size. A standard screenshot should fit the file size limit. Increasing would only slow down the page speed, take more bandwidth, etc.. Reasons as to why a screenshot might be bigger is because of photoshopping and large resolutions. I've taken a look at yours, and noticed some of your screenshots are photoshopped AND have a size of 1426x743, which is definitely overdone. I've also checked Analytics, 63,3% of have a resolution below 1426x743. This is a good example of what @[URL="http://www.runelocus.com/forums/member.php?u=188358"]Envo[/URL] was talking about in his marketing thread. People think too easy, more or bigger screenshots doesn't mean you'll get more players :P The videos thing I'm not so sure about. I've tested it with a few server owners and out of almost 10.000 visitors, not even 100 checked out the videos. I have some ideas in my head about the screenshot and ads position though. It seems like the best performing toplist entries are the ones with a simple, clean list of details and links (links at top). You should link the toplist entry to an attractive, nice looking landing page on your website, which can show more screenshots and eventually videos. Linking to a forum, webclient or zip-file(= killer) doesn't work well and gives people a bad first impression.[/QUOTE] Alright, I will work on the screenshots & such within the limits I suppose it's kind of overdone. We're working on a landing page already aswell. I'm going to try to work on our overall page aswell & we'll see how it goes. Thanks for sharing some of that information ;p
  5. [I][LIST] [*]If you're in the Top 10; maximum file-size of images increased. (Had to downgrade some of our images to .jpeg because they were apparently too large of a file) - or it could be requested, or it could be a monthly payment of $5, or something of the sort. [*]Screenshots moved to the top of the page. [*]A new thing under Screenshots named "Videos" which can showcase 2 videos from YouTube; click on a video & it pops-out but keeps you on the Runelocus site. [*]Move the server advertisement right underneath the "All about: Server Name Here" instead of mixed inside of the other servers information. [/LIST][/I] [B][I]Hopefully understandable & not that bad of suggestions, ;p[/I][/B] [B][I]I'm not 100% certain about moving screenshots/videos to the top but really most people don't want to read. Either way, if not move them to the top: hopefully a videos spot can be added (I know we can add it on our own but in a section would be cleaner)[/I][/B] [SPOILER=Preview Example] [IMG]http://i42.tinypic.com/ounrl0.jpg[/IMG] [/SPOILER]
  6. It's not a bad idea, but at the same time you could use the time to build your current RuneScape Private Server toplist to whole new levels. If you are going to make any sort of new toplist though, I would have to say MineCraft would be the first option I would pick aswell. ;)
  7. Was fun! Hopefully more competitions like this come up!
  8. [quote name='BananaGuy']Just passed my driving exam :) First time and I didn't fail yay :D Now I can chill and get xp :D[/QUOTE] Thats awesome - I have to go take mine at the end of the month or the start of the next month ;) You don't need to keep gaining levels though! you are far ahead. lolking [B][U]Competition[/U][/B] [I]The competition has been very close over the last couple of days, everyone seemed to gain quite a bit of XP/levels. Ch0bs managing to take over the #2 spot & me managing to take over the #3 spot. Nouish & ABurialAtSea are also mostly in a battle as they are very close to each others total levels. Alien has gained quite a bit of levels aswell - so he could catch up to us all possibly!

  11. The competition at 4,5,6 (I am 6) is head-to-head, lol. Seems like BananaGuy has this in the bag for the #1 spot though.
  12. May be able to come third if I try hard enough. ;p

  14. [quote name='Raw Envy']What way's can server owners protect them self's? Any suggestions?[/QUOTE] I'm not a professional & I know offshore can't 100% protect you; but you want to make sure everything is offshore, it does make it harder for Jagex to do anything too you. Most of these servers/sites were located in US/Germany.. which will enforce their DMCA laws, offshore on the other hand either doesn't have DMCA laws or they don't enforce them most of the time. In some peoples minds: [B][I]"Can't they just take me to court?"[/I][/B] [B]A[/B]: "The average price of any corporate lawyer is $1500 per hour. Look up the amount of time it takes to write a deposition, set a venue, settle jurisdiction, set calendar dates, and a whole ton of other things that I simply cba to type out = >$25000" - That1dude Meaning, it wouldn't be worth it of course. -- [B][U]Owner of BattleScape[/U][/B] [quote name='Palidino']This is just a reminder, that I've been here for maybe 6 years now, and I'm not going anywhere. Recently, quite a few large servers have been shut down, including Near Reality, RS2006, and Arrav. I would just like to take a moment to say, that unless Jagex personally shows up at my [U]DOOR STEP[/U], I'm not going to leave over an email. If they do end up deciding to send me some emails, it wouldn't be the first time they have anyway.[/QUOTE] He has also been recieving fake phone calls from supposively Jagex, make SURE you are 100% it's Jagex and you are not just falling for a HUGE scam. They aren't going to take down SoulSplit or BattleScape anytime soon.. again, they took out the easier servers, when they start taking people to court over a server like BattleScape is when it'll get serious, because you know they aren't playing around, seeing as they would be losing money.
  15. [quote name='Raw Envy']Yeah same. Considering Soul Split is bigger than Arrav it really doesn't make sense..[/QUOTE] It's most likely because Arrav was an easier target to take down then SoulSplit, but still they were "huge". It's a good scare to the top servers aswell. Pim seems to be intelligent enough to protect himself a little bit better against Jagex than the average server. Palidino (BattleScape) has also been around long enough to learn ways of better protection against getting taken down by Jagex easily. Which is why we aren't the ones being targeted at all either. (Besides the fact that Jagex is going around taking down all BattleScape/SoulSplit related videos that have a lot of views on them and are newer videos, that can never be stopped)
