  1. Sorry for that scare everyone, just some minor file removals and configuration tweaks. We shouldn't experience that again. On that note, we're back up and running and it doesn't look like we lost anything. Please respond here if you see anything funky and I'll take care of it.

  2. It gives me great pleasure to announce that we again have awards on RHQ forums! I'm smoothing everything out so that we have all the previous awards we had on the forums. I believe we have a log of awards that were issued on the old forums, and I'll be working closely with the Community Crew and Forum Management to ensure that everyone receives the awards they had on the old forums (excluding the post count awards). I'm also going to work closely with these teams to create new awards that users can receive.

    As we get closer to have all the old awards added, as well as the newer awards we'd like to see, I'll issue a new statement with a list of the awards that everyone can receive. On the note of reception of awards, I've gotten a system installed that will now automatically award post count awards when the conditions are met; please note that if you gain the 500 post count award, the 250 post count award will be removed from your account to avoid cluttering everything.

    Feel free to comment, discuss or ask any questions you may have here.

  3. As I'm working on the site, I'm keeping an open mind to what you beautiful members of the community would like to see. I know some of you, like myself, like to support RHQ in any means I possibly can. And in some cases, this can boil down to "premium" benefits - which are something the we would love to offer to those of you who would like to help us out in this manner.

    Because of the work I'm doing, I can integrate newer and more beautiful things that would make RHQ a little more fluent and have a couple perks while we're at it. However, I'm falling short on what we could possibly do as "premium benefits" that wouldn't make not being an Advanced Member being required to enjoy the site.

    My thoughts so far are falling to two options right now:

    Having one level of Advanced Membership that has all the benefits tied into it


    Having two levels of Advanced Membership that would offer a bit more to the higher Level

    Site Supporters

    • Removal of ads on side of site
    • Weekly, Monthly and Yearly experience gains tracking -or- Site will auto-hide completed (mini)quests [toggle setting]
    • Custom color on forums & site

    Advanced Members (Slightly higher cost than Supporter)

    • Removal of all ads on site
    • Weekly, Monthly and Yearly experience gains tracking
    • Site will auto-hide completed (mini)quests [toggle setting]
    • Custom color on forums & site
    • Custom icon on forums & site


    What we here would like to know is:

    Which do you prefer - single tiered system or two tiered system?
    Do you like the benefits outlined above?
    If there is a benefit not listed that you would like to see - what is it and how would it work (if it needs to be explained)?
    We would like to offer our Premium Benefits at:

    • Monthly Renewal
    • 3 Month Renewal
    • 6 Month Renewal
    • Yearly Renewal

    What do you feel would be an appropriate donation to give for the benefits outlined / suggested on these levels (feel free to pick one or more of the rates, don't feel like you need to outline the price of all the suggested above)

    We appreciate everyone's involvement and interaction in our community and do not in any way, shape or form want anyone - be it new, current or returning members - to feel as though you have to pay for anything on our site. We have always been, and will continue to always be a dedicated free to use site for all things RuneScape. These package(s) are just a special way of use saying THANK YOU for anyone that would like to help cover the hosting costs of RuneHQ.

    Please feel free to answer the above questions or have open discussion about the topic outlined above in comments to this thread. If you would like to discuss or answer the questions in a non-public format, please feel free to PM me, @MrsStormy or @DRAVAN and we will discuss it one-on-one with you and share your ideas for discussion anonymously.

  4. 2 hours ago, Numerous One said:

    With 2.0, will we have a "Seperate" DB for OSRS PIM and Quests?

    Correct, databases will be separate. Hopefully we can attract some more OS people to help out. I can do the edits relatively well being as a play OS fairly often, but I think I'm the only one on staff that does atm.

  5. Now that things are (relatively) working as they should be, what exactly is the dev team up to? Most of the front-end and critical data has been restored to an adequate level to allow our community to access the site as they have in the past. You may have noticed some things have gone missing - such as the login on the main page, comments and submissions on guides, persons, monsters, items and calculators - this was partially due to our new forums being introduced, and partially due to an upcoming massive update that's being worked on in the background (more on that below). Right now I'm working on hammering out a couple other very important back-end changes for the existing site to make it function more smoothly and as needed for staff.

    The biggest RHQ project to date is currently in progress in the background (which we are calling RHQ 2.0). We're working on a whole new core that will modernize RHQ a bit more. Not only is the back end of the site getting reworked to be more user friendly, With Faith and I are working on bringing a new front end to the site that we hope you will all enjoy.

    If there are any other Old School fans lurking here, similar to myself, you'll be glad to know that with 2.0 will come segregation of OS and RS3 content. Upon logging into 2.0 you will be defaulted to see RS3 content, but a quick fix in your settings will make the default displays be OS related. This will make sifting through all those quests much easier - not to mention persons, items and monsters will be displayed for OS and not RS3.

    We do not yet have a date of release for this, but I felt like you all should know what's going on in regards to the development of RHQ - especially since my fixes have been somewhat site-breaking here and there. You all as our community deserve to know what is going on as it's not the staff that makes the community tick; it's all of you coming together with us that makes RHQ the amazing community it is. If we can stay together with the downtime we experience a couple months ago, we can surely make it together through the updates that are on the distant horizon.

    Please, let us know how you feel about this and if you have any questions. I hope you all are as excited for these updates as we are!

    Oh yeah... did I mention mobile, well yeah, mobile display. And what's talk without a bit of a teaser image (remember, this is all pre-alpha and is going to change):

  6. As (most of) you know, RHQ has pips (small little dots by our ranks) and ranks that display based on the amount of posting you have done. These add some flare to the forums and let you show off your (appropriate) levels of spamming the forums. I'd like to make these more RHQ-esque. If you feel so inclined to design something free of copyrighted material that would better suit our community, I'd love for you to make and present them to us.

    The winner of this event will have relinquish all rights to the images to RuneHQ / Global Gaming HQ. Their content will appear on the site and will receive 15Mil RS3 GP.

    Second place will relinquish all rights to the images to RuneHQ / Global Gaming HQ. Their content will be kept to be used at a later date and will receive 10Mil RS3 GP.

    Third place will relinquish all rights to the images to RuneHQ / Global Gaming HQ. Their content will be kept to be used at a later date and will receive 5Mil  RS3 GP.


    *Old school GP can be substituted at a 1:4 ratio (i.e. you will get 3.75M for first place, 2.5M for second, 1.25M for third).

    I hope the talented members of our community will come up with some great designs for us to use.

    Note: Generally speaking, our pips are 9x20px. Only one image is needed.

    If you have any questions about this, please feel free to ask.
