RuneLocus, the 10 Years Anniversary!

Hi everyone,

When I started this website and journey 10 years ago, I had absolutely no idea what RuneLocus would become. It was nothing more than a hobby project and a place to keep in touch with others.

But the community kept growing and we built a major network of RSPS players, managers veterans and team members. We have faced good and bad times in the past 10 years, whereof the worst was for sure a corrupt harddrive causing us to completely rebuilding and restarting RuneLocus from scratch in 2010. The scars are still noticeable as our community forum has unfortunately not yet managed to get back to its old level of activity. Our toplist instead, has grown to a level at which we can say that RuneLocus is for sure the most known and used RSPS toplist ever seen!

Not because of us, but because of you. We were carried forward by the passion of our visitors and community that continues to grow and evolve, ten years later.

There’s nothing more to say beyond thank you!

Coming in 2017 to RuneLocus

Greetings,

As 2017 rolls in we’re celebrating a decade of RuneLocus with various core updates and even more features for our user base. Below are some planned updates we’re looking into adding to RuneLocus. We will announce when these projects will become in-development. 

Signature of the Month: We look to bring this back, hosting various contests in tune with various themes again.
RSPS List Improvements: Various design changes, easier interactions and more beefy anti-cheating systems.
Social Media Interaction: Bring back the @RuneLocus Twitter, improve our Facebook and post more content for our 21,000+ likes.
Forum Improvements: Various changes to core features including chatbox, post editor and forum structure.
Content Improvements: With the help of @SiniSoul and others developers, we’re looking into improving content in this slow community.
Contests: We haven’t ran a contest in years! We’re looking into creating more fun contests with ad slots, cash and virtual currency as prizes.
Thanks for using RuneLocus, we’ve been around for over 10 years! The same awesome dedicated owner continues to work on this site from 2007 to 2017! I’d like to personally thank @Ikiliki! He could’ve sold this website easily for a substantial amount of money but never once considered this. Thank you, Ikiliki.

All the best,

RuneLocus

A new look & feel for RuneLocus

The overall look and feel of RuneLocus has been drastically updated to make it easier for you to navigate and to find, make or manage a RSPS. What’s your opinion on the new look and feel?

  • A fresh look and feel that is also working for mobile phones
  • Improved usability to help you browse easier and faster
  • A new way to filter on RSPS revisions on the RuneScape private server list

We aim to constantly keep improving RuneLocus to ensure that it remains current. There are more updates coming up later this month and next month.

If you have any feedback on the new look site, please give us a reply!

Throwback Thursday: RuneScape 2.

RuneScape 2 was launched on 29 March 2004. Players’ stats and quest history were copied over to RS2, which became known only as RuneScape to reflect its status as the main game, one last time. Several RuneScape 1 servers were also left online, and it was officially named “RuneScape Classic”. Players were given the choice as to which game they wanted their items to be transferred to. Afterwards, they became completely independent of each other.

Continuing our trend of throwbacks, we bring to you a Throwback Thursday to the RS2 BETA! Where you around back then? I know I wasn’t!
