    RuneHQ (once again) has a Twitch channel! (ooooooh, ahhhhhhhhh)


    Check it out here! Our first stream is April 1st at 8pm EST (Chath couldn't resist the date). We will be streaming about RHQ updates, upcoming events, and such with @ChathMurrpau and @Scarlywars crashing in on @SiriusXM's player-owned house.

    After the first one is complete, we will be streaming every Tuesday at 8pm EST (see our calendar or Twitch for time conversions) and perhaps some other times in between. Keep your eyes open for more details as we get closer to release the date 😉

  8. Have an idea for a Poll that you would like to see on the forum main page? Reply to this comment and make a suggestion. Remember that all suggestions must follow the RuneHQ Rules and to include a main question(s) as well as selection options. Please keep suggestions to RuneScape and RuneHQ based themes.


    We look forward  to seeing your suggestions!

  9. In this thread, you'll find an up to date copy of our forum rules. Please take some time to read these as it will ensure your RuneHQ Experience will be a good one!

    1. The most important rule we have on RuneHQ is respect. Do not do anything which may disrespect or offend another member of the forums in any way. Examples include but are not limited to:

    • Flaming, being rude, trolling, or just intentionally being mean to other users.
    • Swearing or vulgar language. Acronyms that include swearing may be tolerated, but only if they are being used in a positive sense rather than being used to be rude or disrespect other members or RuneHQ staff.
    • Opinions on subjects like religion, race, gender, sexual orientation, and politics which could be deemed offensive toward someone of different beliefs. Exceptions are made in the debate forum, but any topic that starts a flame war will immediately be locked.
    • Accusing people of lying, cheating, or anything similar.
    • Begging for things from others; although not disrespectful in itself, it is rude to them to keep asking for things.

    2. Use good posting etiquette. This is fairly self-explanatory, but examples of poor posting etiquette are:

    • Spamming: posting the same topic or reply over and over, posts containing no content (one word replies), and posts that do not relate to the topic at hand. Bumping certain topics is acceptable as long as there is no more than one post made per 12 hours.
    • Posting in the wrong board or not following any section's Guidelines.
    • Posting a duplicate topic or one very similar to an existing topic (does not apply to market).
    • Double posting in a topic, even if it is not bumping; you should use the edit button instead. If you cannot edit a post and need to, contact a Forum Moderator for assistance.
    • Posting in all caps.
    • Creating “Activate my Runetrack” topics – You are more than welcome to add your Runetrack image to your signature, this will also work in the same way to activate your account.
    • Backseat moderating will not be tolerated by anyone, staff included (Unless of course you are a Moderator, Manager, or Admin). Instead of posting telling users that they broke rules, use the report button to report the post to a Forum Moderator.

    3. There are certain things on the forums that are not to be discussed or asked for. Most are fairly obvious, but some may not be. They are:

    • Staff issues, these should never be discussed with non-staff, regardless of whether you or the other person is former staff.
    • Any kind of material that is inappropriate for RuneHQ's age range; there are people under 13 here.
    • Asking for new forums and categories should be via a PM to a Manager or Admin staff member only.
    • Asking to be given a new rank or put in a new usergroup is not allowed to be posted on the forums. If you feel you are placed in the wrong group, please contact a Manager or Admin.
    • Asking to be made a staff member is not allowed to be posted on the forums. See this section if you wish to become Staff.

    4. All United States' laws apply and take precedence over national and international laws which also apply to this forum. Encouraging another user to break laws will not be tolerated. 

    Some examples are:

    • Posting malicious content on the forums like spyware or viruses.
    • Copyright infringement.
    • Any type of file sharing discussion.
    • Any form of plagiarism, including taking another users signature or avatar. If you are going to use an avatar or signature that was created by someone else for you, please make sure that you credit that person.
    • Discussion or pictures of any illegal activity, illegal drug use, or underage smoking or drinking.

    5. Advertising other sites and outside linking is not allowed unless they are listed below as an allowed link.
    Approved links:

    • http://www.worldtimeserver.com (if you are hosting an event)
    • Links to other GlobalGamingHQ sites
    • Links to runescape.com or jagex.com
    • Links to GeUpdater (created by former RuneHQ staff member, McSwindler)
    • Links to Runetrack
    • Links to RuneClan
    • Links to Twitch
    • Links to Twitter

    The following links are unacceptable:

    • Sites featuring people in various stages of undress, or anything that would be considered inappropriate for small children.
    • Links to automatically attack other members in the battle system are not allowed.
    • Outside links are only allowed in the following boards: Clans, RuneScape Pics and Vids, and The Lounge. These boards have specific rules regarding links, be sure and read those rules before posting.

    You may have outside links in your homepage field and in your About Me section on your profile, however, it must not link to another RuneScape fansite or site which breaks any of RuneHQ's rules (excluding the outside link rule). If someone deems your content to be inappropriate you may find it removed and/or disciplines received.

    6. RuneHQ has general rules that do not fall into any other category:

    • Making multiple forum accounts or using someone else's forum account is not allowed. You are only allowed to have and use a single forum account.
    • All RuneScape and Jagex rules apply to this board. We also do not allow discussion of any RuneScape clients that are not endorsed by Jagex or RuneHQ.

    7. Image, Signature and About Me Rules

    General image limits:

    • No image posted on RuneHQ forums may exceed 800px width.
    • Topics with large image content, over 100kb in total file size on a single page, need to have a large image warning.
    • Topics are not allowed to be over 500kb in total file size in a single page without first getting the permission of the manager of that forum (exclusions for Graphic Creations apply).

    Signature and About Me areas have the following limits:

    • Signatures and About Me areas must follow all of the forum rules, including the rules about links. Please be sure that your signature does not have embedded links in it unless these links are on the approved list.
    • The total combined file size of your signature cannot exceed 400kb.
    • The total size of your signature, in pixels, cannot exceed 250 pixels tall and 600 pixels wide. Please note that the height and width limit includes text.

    8. Communication Between the Staff and You

    At RuneHQ, our rules are something we take seriously and if you break them there will be consequences. These will range anywhere from a friendly PM from a Moderator, Manager, or Admin reminding you of the rules to a warning and possibly a ban from the forums depending on the severity of the rule broken and how many previous offenses you have had. If you have a question about the rules, please check the FAQs or feel free to contact one of our lovely Moderators. 

    If you have any problems feel free to consult the staff of the site. It's often a good idea to check with the people who work in the area you have a problem or question about.

    If you have a problem with a staff member or a discipline you receive, please contact a Manager with your issue and they will take care of it. A list of our Managers and groups they are in charge of can be found here. Please refrain from contacting the Admins unless it is an urgent matter.

    Our staff members may communicate with you through forum PMs. Normally if a staff member PMs you it is important, so please read the PMs you receive from them and if necessary reply back to them.


    We use the built in warning system for all rule breaking. The first time you break a specific rule you will be given 0 points, and all times after you will be given 1 point. If, however, the rule broken is more severe, we may issue 5 points right away.

    0 points - Just a heads up that you broke a rule. It is also used for documentation purposes.
    1-2 points - Simple warnings helping you to remember our rules.
    3 points - All of your posts will be hidden until a moderator approves your content. This lasts for 14 days.
    4 points - You are unable to create new content for 14 days. For the following 16 days, all of your posts will be hidden until a moderator approves your content.
    5 points - You will be permanently banned from the forums.

    All points expire 30 days after earning them, but the offenses will remain on record.

    Need help on an 07 (aka OSRS) quest like Shield of Arrav or Heroes' quest? Look no further!



    When requesting a partner please try to be as patient as possible. We greatly suggest trying to contact at least a couple of names on the list when you are placing your own name on the list. Simply post in this topic what quest you need help in, the best way to contact you, your RuneScape name, and when you're available.

    Quest: Heroes' Quest
    Best way to contact you: TeamSpeak

    (failure to include at least username, quest, and how to contact you will result in your post being deleted immediately)


    When your request has been fulfilled please edit your post to strike through "S" and put "COMPLETED" in a brighter font above the other text. This helps everyone here to keep a clean and organized topic, and also ensures those who need help get it in a timely manner and you won't be bombarded with requests after you have finished the quest, or at least not as much.

  12. Hello RuneHQ!

    If you are interested in starting or participating in a debate, here are a few simple guidelines that you should be following:

    • Please be considerate of everyone elses feelings and beliefs when you post your responses, obviously you feel very strongly for your argument otherwise you wouldn't be making it, but please do not stamp on other peoples' beliefs or specifically flame someone in the process; that's just not nice and it will not be tolerated. Everyone has different opinions and it is these opinions that make Debates so popular.
    •  Topics such as Pizza VS Pie or Mac VS PC are personal preferences, not debates and should be posted in The Lounge.
    •  Follow the forum rules.
    •  If you are starting to get flustered, step away and cool down before posting a response.
    •  Most of all, have fun!

    If you have any questions, queries or concerns please PM Myself or any of our Forum Moderators.

  13. Hello there,


    When rating other people's graphical creations,  please be respectful as some users will have placed a lot of effort into their creations. Produce constructive criticism and make sure that your remarks are in no way intended to hurt the feeling of the artists.


    Spam posts which rate works of art lowly for no reason whatsoever will NOT be tolerated, and will be addressed by a Forum Moderator.


    Try to make comments that would be beneficial to the artist.  What could they do better to improve their work?    


    Have fun! 
    - RuneHQ Staff

  14. If you see an ad that breaks Jagex rules, is a scam/hack/cheat site, or is a questionable site, you need to get the LINK to the site!

    We can filter out ads on Google, but we need the site URL, a picture of the ad is USELESS. Telling us about the ad is useless. Telling us we have ads that violate the rules is USELESS, are you getting the picture here?

    If you see one of these ads, pm the URL to an admin and we will add it to the filter.

    With that being said, Sometimes the filter does not always work. We can add it and the ad may still show up.

    Ads are what pay for us to run this site, without them this site is history! Unless someone out there wants to pay us thousand of dollars per month for our servers and bandwidth.

    These are the sites we currently have blocked:

  15. Hello there,


    The feedback forum is a place where you can express new ideas for content and features that would help improve RuneHQ.


    If you have a complaint regarding one of our existing features or content, do not post here. Instead create a private message with the manager and admin who is in charge of that area and they will seek to resolve your issue.


    To see who you may need to PM with regards to your needs, see this thread.


    This is not a complaints forum.



  16. clantopics.png

    When you are recruiting you will notice that your clan's topic will fall down on the page.  When this happens, we allow you to "double post" (ONLY IN THIS SECTION), once every 24 hours with the word "bump".  We would prefer if you had a conversation on the topic with another member of the clan, or a hopeful recruit etc., about events, turn outs, activity, that sort of thing, but if not, please resort to the fatal "bump" post.

    If you want your topic to be cleaned of the "bump" posts, PM a Forum Moderator and they'll clear them up!

    Abusing this system (ie Bumping more than several times a day) will result in a warning from a Forum Moderator.


  17. clanrecruitments.png


    Looking for a clan? Looking to make a thread advertising your clan? Here's one way you can do it!

    Clan Recruitment Threads

    When making a clan recruitment thread, be sure you make it under 1mb!

    Most people usually start off with a clan banner (under 100kb preferably, however it can be any size under 1mb, but you'll see why it should be lower later on) at the top of the thread. They also have a link to their clan site embedded into the banner, but not to websites other then their clan. The way to do this is like this:


    [url=(insert clan site name here][/url]

    To get the direct image URL, using Internet Explorer, you right click the image and copy/paste the url right next to the words "Address (URL)".
    One example of this would be this:
     *Note: New Members will be unable to post links. Once you become an established member, you will have the ability to post and embed links.
    Next, you usually put some information about your clan. Please try to make it not offensive to anybody, and appropriate for all ages. This is pretty straightforward; you just type some text in. It can be about anything in your clan; your forums, your history, even your members! In the text remember to include type of clan, link to your website/forum, requirements to join, number of clan members, and people to contact. If you have different sections in your clan for different leveled players please include it all in one thread and not multiple threads. You can also add color by doing this:

    [color=(insert color you want here)]Text Here![/color]

    Alternately, you can use the built in color editor by simply selecting the text you want colored, and clicking the color palette.
    Some colors have special codes that look like this:


    These are usually in-between shades, however things like "red", "pink", "blue", and "dark red" work quite well.

    After the clan information, many people put a few images of clans pking. These should be limited to 2-3, and once again, make sure they're under 1mb total (along with the banner). These images can be about almost anything your clan does, from parties to skill-training to pking. Again, you can put the link to your clan site in the image by using the same method as above.
    Finally, you may want to just quickly sum up all of the information you've put above, and have a message saying something along the lines of "Join our clan now!" This will help users who don't want to read a huge topic and just want to get to bashing in everyone else's skulls and having a great time!

    "Looking For A Clan!" Threads

    Threads which advertise your skills that are available to help out a clan, or that say you're looking for a clan are generally short, sweet, and to the point. They basically want to make you look as appealing as possible to a clan. The skills most commonly advertised are your attack, defence, strength, hit points, prayer, magic, ranged, and your 1-2 highest skills other than those. They also usually say what kind of clan you're looking for (small, large, pking, skilling etc.)

    Advertising Your Clan On Another Thread

    Replies to threads that are looking for a clan usually have a banner in the topic and then a little information about their clan. You may not want to even put a little information in the reply and plainly put "Join Us Now!". Remember to include a link to your topic on RuneHQ and not to the actual site. When making the replies, please try to make them under 100kb this way it will not take a long time for users of RuneHQ to load the page. That is usually all you will want to put in a reply to a "Looking For A Clan!" Thread.


    If you have any questions about the clan forums, please contact a Forum Moderator.

    Good luck in creating a Clan Recruitment thread!

  18. Spent months and months working on a goal that you've finally accomplished?



    We will gladly help you celebrate your momentous occasion :default_bunny: 



    Please remember to keep these accomplishments to RuneScape related activities and to larger, more exciting accomplishments.

    While we are happy that you achieved level 5 in a skill, we do not need to hear about every level gain you make. Lower levels are still able to be posted about (for example you achieved all levels for Priff), just remember to be reasonable :classic_wink:
