Staff

Rune Tips is kept alive and kicking due to the dedication of many staff. These include several Administrators, Forum Moderators and the Tip.It Crew. The Admins oversee everything related to the website and the forum. The Tip.It Crew is the team of people who maintain and update the website. The Moderators are responsible for the Forums only. The [pm] and [profile] links after any staff name will allow you to send them a private message through our forums or view their profile on our forums.

Rune Tips was originally founded by STEEL Corporation Inc.: Dmonik, BlueRose13x, Lightning, Starlude, Xentia, Kibble, Rodrigo, DOC IRON 9, Sir Beachy, Stud6900, Hitman X and Silverion.

Administrators should be contacted if no moderators are online to assist you or if you have a significant issue with the forum or another staff member. Administrators are generally extremely busy managing the forum and do most of their work behind the scenes.

Role: Bestiary & Guides Editor
Bio: I'm a 5 year player of RuneScape with an untrimmed Cooking cape and I am proud of that! But anyway, aside from my passion for cooking in RS, I love slayer, which gives me a passion for the Bestiary. I also train pretty much every other skill, which is why I often work on guides too. When I'm not on RS, I'm playing my Bass/Singing, or playing one of my many games across various consoles, or listening to music. I'm currently starting a college course, which is called Extended Diploma in Music, and I just completed a course in Music Tech too (so I am a total music/game nerd).

Bio: I am currently 29 years old and work as an Environmental Educator. I have a B.S. in Environmental Science and a M.A. in Natural Resources and Environmental Management. My favorite skill in Runescape is Slayer. My favorite minigame is Dungeoneering ;) I love to boss hunt and am experienced in taking down most bosses solo as well as in groups. I'm definitely more focused on fun than efficiency, and I don't like to buy equipment - I prefer to get all my gear as drops. I also like to quest and have a quest cape, but haven't kept up on new quests so I haven't been able to wear my cape for quite some time.

Bio: I am a 17 year old male student who enjoys studying history, statistics, economics, and the English language. I don't really have and hobbies, but I do a variety of activities. Overall, I'm a pretty quiet guy, but I treat people the same way they treat me, so I may come off as rude to rude people and so on. I began playing RuneScape around the time RS2 was first released in 2004, so my account is about 8 years old. I've been on the Editorial Panel since June of 2011 and it has been quite an enjoyable experience!
