  1. Please thoroughly review the following information before participating in the clans category forum. You are allowed to posts links and images that pertain to your clan such as RuneHead, Clan Websites, Image Sharing Sites (Imageshack, Photobucket, etc), and other sites deemed safe by the staff. In addition, you can also embed YouTube videos, however, you are NOT allowed to post any other links to sites which do not relate to a clan. Please try to minimize the amount of images you use in posts. You may not use more than 1MB, and we would appreciate it if you used less. Whether you are replying to a member in search of a clan or posting a topic advertising a clan you represent, you must keep each of your replies under 1MB. Failure to do so will result in your topic/reply being removed. You may only bump your clan advertising topic once every 24 hours from the last bump that was posted. This means if another member of the RuneHQ forums bumps your topic for you, you must wait at least 24 hours from the last bump to do it again. If you have any questions about the advertisement of your clan, please do not hesitate to contact a clans category staff member. Questions and Comments If you have any questions please contact the Forum Moderators or the Forum Manager.
  2. There are several steps to changing your signature. Follow the steps below: Click your name in the top right corner of the screen, select "Account Settings". Towards the left you will see an options bar, click on "Signature". Copy your image and paste it into the box to insert it. Resize your image as necessary by dragging a square along the edge of your image until it is the appropriate size. Note that RuneHQ signatures do not allow HTML, but do permit BBcode. The buttons above the text area can help you with those until you learn how to use it on your own. Please remember to follow all RuneHQ rules when editing your signature. For more information about BBCode please see this topic. Click "Save" and your signature will now be changed. Your signature must follow the forum rules and have the following limits: Signatures 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, the height and width limit includes text. the height restriction can be "bypassed" by using spoilers to hide some of what you want present. How do I find the file size, height, and width of my image? Firefox - Right click on the image and selecting "View Image Info" Internet Explorer - Right click on the image and selecting "Properties" While adding/editing your signature, you can click your image and 8 squares will appear around your image. Dragging one of these squares will resize your image and, in turn, inform you of the size of your image. How do I get one of those cool signatures everyone has? You can get those cool signatures by ordering from the shops, requesting someone to make a signature for you, or making a signature yourself. Our "Graphic Creations" forum is one place you can make a request for a signature.

  9. Can I copy RuneHQ's guides and put them on my site? No, you cannot copy any of the content or the images as they are copyrighted by RuneHQ. Any one found copying our guides could face legal action. Do not even ask if you can use our guides or images, the answer is, and always will be, NO! If you see our guides on other websites, please contact a Site Administrator immediately. What if I change the words and sentences used? You still cannot use our guides or images as they are copyrighted and that would be plagiarism. If we find you copying any of our content, you may face legal action. What if I translate the Guides? This still is not allowed as everything on this site is copyrighted by RuneHQ. It is possible that you will get in trouble if we find your website containing any of our guides or images. I submitted this guide to RuneHQ so I can use it on my site too, right? Once you have submitted something to RuneHQ, it becomes RuneHQ's intellectual property. You are no longer the owner of the guide, RuneHQ is. As such, you cannot put this guide on your site. Why are we so strict about this? Our users have done a lot of work writing these Guides. The Administrators have done a lot of work setting up this whole system and getting everything coded and put on the RuneHQ web site. All our guides are updated and the staff and members here on RuneHQ have worked hard updating every guide. It would be completely unfair if people were allowed to take the guides we worked on for many hours. Therefore, we have copyrighted our Guides and will not allow any site to copy them. We have made the guides, spent our time working hard on all the content found on this site, therefore we protect what we have made and thus you cannot use them. We are one of the top RuneScape Fan sites and also one of the biggest. It is likely people would try to steal our content and hence we have to be strict. Legal action could be taken against people that violate copyright laws. Copying content is copyright breach and this matter is very serious not only on RuneHQ, but all over the internet.
  10. BBCode is a way to edit the appearance of your posts. All codes require a starting tag and a closing tag. It starts with [NAME] and ends with [/NAME]. When adding a topic or making a reply, directly above the textbox are a number of buttons. These buttons are the most commonly used BBCodes. Click on one of the buttons and the starting and closing tags will appear. You should type any text you want to be transformed with that style between the two tags. The following is a list of the ones found in your text box and what they do: Bold Italics Underline. Strikethrough Creates a spoiler Clears formatting for selected text. This will reset it to the default size and color. Opens a window so you can add a link to selected text; like this one that takes you to the forum rules. Makes a quote box Opens a window where you can insert coding Emojis Adds/removes a bulleted list (as you see here) Adds/removes a numerical list Aligns text to the left Aligns text to the center Aligns text to the right Indents your text, allowing you to create tiered lists in both bullet or numerical form Allows for color change of text background. Allows for color change of text Allows for size change of text Allows you to preview your text before submitting There are more BB Codes in the wide world of the web, however, these are the ones that can be found here to help you personalize your posts.
  11. Avatar An avatar is the picture in the top left hand corner of all of your posts, underneath your forum name. You can upload a file of up to 2 kb and it will allow you to select a 80X80 circular portion of the image to focus on. These are examples of an Avatar: Cover Photo This photo is only seen at the top of your profile page. It can be up to 490 kb in size and will typically display a 250px tall slice from the top of the image. The remainder of the photo will be displayed if clicked. Signature/Underbanner A signature, or sig, is what is underneath all of your posts. You do not need one, but they look nice and can tell people information, like what combat level you are, something you support, or something you are proud of. Signatures do not need to be pictures, they can just be writing, or links, or writing with links and picture (See Underbanner). It's up to you. An underbanner is just a smaller version of a signature and is put into your signature box as well. They are mainly used to show information, be colorful links to places, or to show off a specific achievement or allegiance. To add or change an underbanner just follow the links to your signature, as they are added under, over, or instead of your signature of choice. Please note: All Avatars, Cover Photos, Signatures, and Underbanners must follow all of the RuneHQ rules and guidelines. Avatars and Cover Photos are based upon the file size as opposed to the image size. Try using different file types and resizing if your desired one will not fit. The TOTAL size of your Signature and Underbanner cannot exceed 600 X 250 pixels. However, you can "surpass" the height restriction by putting either one or more of the images within a spoiler to hide it until opened.
  12. Advertising ANY kind of RuneScape gambling games (such as the popular flower game and dice game) will not be allowed in these forums. This measure was taken by no other motive than your own protection as these gambling games are often scams. As a friendly advice, we also recommend to avoid them while you're playing in-game. Some players will attempt to build your trust in order to scam a larger portion of your wealth off you. Be careful. If you have any questions, feel free to contact a Forum Moderator.
  13. There are countless things that we look for in staff applications. Below, we've listed a list of each thing that we look at in an applicant, as well as a brief description. Effort When reviewing applications for staff positions, we view the effort that the user put into the application. It is important that a user puts as much effort as possible into an application; after all, it is a job application. If an applicant can't put decent effort into their application, it's hard for us to believe that they'd put enough effort into the job they have applied for. Spelling and Grammar Spelling and grammar are HUGE. A staff member must have good spelling and grammar. This is important for many reasons. First of all, for a staff member to be understood and taken seriously, they must be able to use proper spelling and grammar. This includes the use of chatspeak. RuneHQ staff will not use uncommon acronyms and will not leave letters off words to save time. In addition, RuneHQ staff capitalizes the first word of each sentence and puts a proper end mark at the end of each sentence. We will not tolerate a lack of capitalization of first person nominative pronouns! We always capitalize the pronoun "I." We check for grammar and spelling accuracy in both applications and in the applicant's posts. Professionalism We look for professionalism in every applicant. It is important that a staff member is professional at all times. Each staff member must stay professional even at the hardest of times. A staff member represents RuneHQ; it is their job to stay professional and represent RuneHQ in the best way possible. A staff member must be able to act professional not only on RuneHQ, but wherever they are, whether it be on other websites, on RuneScape, or in their everyday life. We check for professionalism in both an applicant's application and posts. Discipline History When reviewing applicants, we view their discipline history. If an applicant is receiving disciplines, they don't understand the rules, and if someone doesn't understand the rules it is nearly impossible for them to enforce them. We always send a reminder of our rules before issuing a discipline If a user continues to break a rule after being reminded, this shows that they cannot take instruction, which is something that is key for RuneHQ staff. When a staff member is given instruction, they are expected to follow the instructions after being asked only once. Activity We view an applicant's activity on RuneHQ. If an applicant is not active, they won't be able to fulfill their duties as a staff member. We expect that each staff member is able to spend time on RuneHQ every day and is able to dedicate enough time to fulfill their requirements. Time Zone We must have staff members from a variety of areas so that there will always be available staff members. If all of our staff members lived in GMT, there would be certain hours of the day when we would have a lack of coverage. For this reason, we take each applicant's time zone into consideration. Conflict of Interest We require that each staff member doesn't work on any other website. We want our staff members to focus their efforts on RuneHQ and not any other websites that they may work for. Attitude A RuneHQ staff member must display a positive attitude at all times. We want our staff to present a positive image. We're not a bunch of pessimists! We're fun, hardworking people, and we want all of our staff members to be that way. Teamwork A staff member must be able to work as a member of a team. We are a staffing team; without teamwork and cooperation, RuneHQ wouldn't operate properly. We will not tolerate staff members who cannot work in a team with other staff members. Chemistry It is important that each staff member fits in to the staffing team. Somebody can be a perfect applicant, but if they just won't fit in, they won't be an effective staff member and they won't be happy as a staff member. Parent Support We require that each staff member has the consent of their parents before becoming a staff member. We cannot verify this in the initial application, but once an applicant is accepted, their parents will be required to sign a permission form. If a user does not have parental consent, they have no use applying for staff. This does not apply to applicants over the age of 18. Fairness A staff member must be fair. It is crucial that each staff member is fair to each member and does not give an advantage to any user, friend or foe. Trustworthiness A staff member is trustworthy. It is important for a staff member to tell the truth. If a staff member cannot be trusted, they shouldn't be on staff. These are the main things we look for in a staff member. We will analyze each user's application, posts, and perform background checks. We can't be fooled. We want to hear what you have to say in your application, not what you think we want to hear. With that aside, let me assure you that being on RuneHQ staff is fun. It's an amazing opportunity. It's a chance to help others, to make a difference. We look forward to receiving your application!

  15. You must be at least 17 years old (18+ for Forum Moderators) OR have obtained an age waiver from a RuneHQ owner. Any applicants under that age will be automatically denied. Do not ask for a waiver on age! Age waivers are granted by owners based on knowing you and thinking you would be a good staff member, so the best way to get a waiver is be involved in the community, be helpful, and follow the rules. Your application will be placed in the staff boards. Staff comments are taken. They review your application as well as your recent disciplines, if any, and posts. After the majority have said either yes or no, then the app is either denied or fully accepted Please note: This process takes up to 1 to 2 weeks! Once you are either accepted or denied you will receive a PM letting you know the decision. Please understand that we only have a limited amount of positions available and it may simply be that someone else was more qualified at this time. You can certainly reapply in either 30 or 60 days (you will be told how long). If accepted on staff, you will then be required to fill out a permission form from your parents or provide proof of age if you are over 18. These are kept completely confidential and the information is never kept online. All info is kept in our offices and is only available to the Site Owners. We need this document for the protection of all of the staff and members on this site. We want to know who the children on our staff are working with. We want parents to be aware of why their kids are spending time on line and what they are doing. We also want to be able to let parents know when their kids are doing a great job. The form does include the Site Owners contact information so that we may be contacted to discuss any concerns over giving this information out. This information is requested in order to protect everyone on our site. For everyone's protection we need to know that people are being honest about who they are and what age they are. Once accepted and the form has been received, then you will move onto the Mod/PIM test and security test, depending on the position you applied for this step may not be applicable and you will move directly to the next step. Final step is a tutorial to teach you how to use the moderating/editing functions and rules or the basics of Community Crew or Events depending on your specific team. Congratulations, you are now on staff!
  16. New members are allowed to apply for staff positions, however, you are more likely to succeed in your application if you are a well Established Member of our community. Without posts we have nothing to go on to evaluate your character and/or grammar. So having good quality posts to become an Established Member(EM) before you apply for staff position really has the potential to work in your favor. Note that posting 1 word posts or smiley faces just to get EM will not! To become RuneHQ Staff, you must send in an application. IMPORTANT: Before you apply, be sure to read the Staff Application Flow and Staff Responsibilities FAQs first. To Apply On the far right side of the navigation bar, at the top of the forums screen, is a tab that says "Open Applications". When you open this tab, you will find the applications for teams that currently in need of new members. Proceed by clicking the red "Apply" button to the right of the application description; be sure to click the correct Apply button for the team you are wanting to join. You will then be redirected to the application page. Note that you can only apply once at this time, so be sure that you are fully filling out the questions asked of you. If you have any issues or questions not answered below, feel free to contact the appropriate manager. Current managers are: Numerous One - Forum Moderators KSB single - Content Editors With Faith - Community Crew & Developers The questions we put in the applications are to show us who you really are and if you are the right person for the job. For more help or ideas, please read the What do we look for in staff applications FAQ. Frequently Asked Questions: My application has been declined. How long do I have to wait until I can send another application? If your application is declined, you must wait 30 days before you reapply. What is the age limit? Staff groups require you to be mature, If you are under the age of 18, you must have your parent sign a permission form. If you are 18 or older, you must have proof of your age. How will I know if I am not accepted? You will receive a PM from the manager of the team you applied to. Don't be upset, you can apply again in 30 days! We wish you best of luck!
  17. New members are discouraged from applying for staff positions; particularly for the Moderator position. Without posts we have nothing to go on to evaluate your character and/or grammar. It is suggested that you make enough good quality posts to become an Established Member(EM) before you apply for staff positions. Posting 1 word posts or smiley faces just to get EM will not be acceptable! How do I become a Moderator on RuneHQ? First, NEVER EVER ask another Moderator or another member of RuneHQ Staff to become a Moderator. We are looking for people who SHOW us they can do the job, not people who are asking for it. Second, if you apply to become a Moderator, please don't think that you will be a Moderator the day after. Many people have been wonderful members for YEARS and are still not Mods. You will only be chosen if you are a good member and follow the Forum Rules. To become a Moderator, wait until you see an announcement along the lines of...."We Are Looking For Forum Moderators!" That will be the time to fill out an application. Be sure to read every single little thing about being a Moderator; down to the requirements, what we look for in staff, plus the list of jobs and activities you would be held accountable for. When you send your application, don't just write "I WANT TO B3 M0d PLZ CH00SE ME!" You have to write a detailed description answering all the questions on the application form. Remember, spelling and proper grammar count! For example: Why do you want to be a Moderator? Why should YOU become a Moderator - what separates you from everyone else? Why are you applying to the Forum Moderators instead of any of our other positions? How many hours a week (on average) do you spend on RuneHQ and when will you be available to moderate? After you have done this, you will get a PM (usually within 1-3 weeks from the time the application was posted to when it was closed), either saying your application has been accepted or your application has been rejected. If you have been rejected, it is not the end of the world and don't think you can never apply again. You must wait 60 days before you can re-apply, but it doesn't count against you. Keep trying! Remember, don't give us 1-2 word answers for each question. Give as much detail as is appropriate for your answer. If the person choosing the Moderators wants you to become Moderator, you will have to provide some sort of identification [for the sake of security] giving us proof of who you are. For members who are older than 18, you will need a valid government ID card (driver's license, ID card) Once you've submitted your form of ID you will be given a link to all the information your job will require of you. Its pretty long and it is in your best interest to read everything. Absorb it, reread it multiple times before trying the big test for your new job. There's no rush once you are notified, you can take up to a week to learn the information. The more you know in the beginning and off the top of your head, the easier your training will be. If you pass...congratulations and welcome! However, if nerves catch up to you and you fail, you will be given a second chance and one week to retake the test. If a certain part gave you trouble, go back and read up on that section and/or ask another Mod. They may have the information you need. What can Moderators do? Moderators can do many things, some which include: Locking threads Moving threads Enforcing the RuneHQ rules This is only a fraction of what Moderators can do. They are busy most of the time; never a dull moment. Moderators are trusted to do these tasks because the higher authorities trust that member, believe they are up to the challenge and are hard workers. Don't think it'll be a walk in the park. It never is. Some days the work is easier and some days problems multiply, but working together with your fellow Moderators and your Manager [your boss] lessens the stress; together we're united. Why are Moderators chosen? Moderators are chosen for the fact that they have been loyal to the site, have helped out, in some way, shape, or form, and have been nice to everyone. They are trusted by Site Admins and Forum Managers to help out and greet new members. Moderators are chosen not because they are someone who has a lot of posts. It's because they have posted good things, have shown the ability to be polite and helpful, and also have the ability to write in a way that can be understood by the majority of forum.
  18. This is a staff group that is ultimately in charge of RuneHQ. They help ensure that everything runs smoothly, while focusing on their respective groups and supporting the site as a whole.

  19. New Members This is the first group all members will be a part of. Members in this group can be identified by their names in Italic font and have a few restrictions. A New Member gets automatically promoted to Established Member after having made a certain number of posts (10 - 25). Note: Spamming our boards to raise your rank will get you disciplined and comes with the chance of getting your post count reset. It isn't too hard to reach the post count to become an Established Member.
