thoughts about General Discuss on Runscape forum
At first, Discussion of the week was a huge success. It was great to see so many well thought out, and posed discussions being posted. As time progressed, however, it just became a popularity contest, even though some people will not admit to that, they would only vote for people they knew, or have seen before. That wouldn't care about what the discussion was about. They just cared about who posted it. As for it's future, I have no idea, to be honest.
Just wanted to point out that as I said in my post, runescape has a limited amount of discussion value, or at least the topics with the most discussion are often spun off. New ones rarely arise, although they do.
If the General Discuss becomes popular, there will be more players buy rs account.
Now to be honest, the only discussion I seem arise today that are seemingly original are those that are what-if topics. There are an almost unlimited amount of those, but I've never truly cared for them since they are "what-if" topics and do not discuss aspects of runescape, but discuss what you would do if something happened.
