Trade scam warning » 

30th December 2003 - Trade scam warning

There seems to be an increase in trade scams recently, so we'd like to warn you to be extra careful.
Some dishonest players in RuneScape are tricking other players in the game by changing quantities at the very last minute causing the other player to receive much less than they expected.

So for example they offer 4 million coins, and then at the last second just as you are pressing accept they change it to 400K coins, and hope you won't notice.

Therefore you need to read the trade confirmation screen very carefully!. Double check that you getting the number you expect. Some players are failing to notice the number has lost a zero off the end, and are getting scammed.

Make sure that you read the trade confirmation thoroughly before clicking the accept button, never be persuaded to click through the windows quickly.

To help you out, we have just made some changes to the confirm screen to make the amounts more obvious. Amounts are now coloured coded, seperated with commas, and written in both words and numbers! This will hopefully make the above scam much less effective, but you should still be careful.

    23rd December 2003 - New RS1 game worlds online

    Last night saw 22,000 simultaneous players, and things were getting a bit crowded! Therefore I've added some more RS1 worlds for you to play on.
    All the worlds are in 'San Jose'. There are 3 free worlds, and 1 members world.

    Hope you enjoy them!

    22nd December 2003 - Christmas Drop

    This is just a quick note to say that there aren't going to be any RuneScape items dropped at christmas. I really don't like having to say this, but I can't see any sensible alternative.
    This is because the last few drops actually caused a lot of upset, and resulted in a *huge* number of complaints from players who didn't manage to get an item (or didn't get as many as their mates). Many players seemed to get really upset about the drop which is of course the exact opposite of the intended effect.

    These drops used to be fun, when we started them - because they were a suprise, and nobody took them too seriously. They were just a little bit of extra fun for people who were around at the time. However nowadays many players seem to expect the 'suprise' drop to happen, and so it just doesn't work the same.

    Please don't go complaining to customer-support or moaning on the forums about the christmas drop. It won't change anything. Of course I'm expecting we'll get lots of complaints whatever we do :-( Which just goes to prove how horribly wrong the whole holiday-drop thing has become. The more complaints we get the more it proves to me that we really need to just stop the whole holiday-drop thing before the situation gets even worse.

    On a more positive note, we are instead going to focus our time & efforts on improving the game in other exciting ways, and working on getting RS2 ready for launch early next year.

    Sorry 'bout not adding news earlier, but as Silverion has said, the Server was done, so since the server is down.. so is news.

    Anyways, remember to check back regulary, because Tip.it will try to have news AS IT HAPPENS. Also, come back in a few hours. Ive got a RS2 Xmas tree decoration to put onto Silverion's post, or somewhere else...
    The crew has many things to finish during next year. This year, not much was done because Silverion was away and nobody else has server access. Next year, I will be launching a weekly or fortnightly newsletter, which will be posted here on the site. It will include Scapeboard Community news, site updates, interviews, Runescape news, and more! We Have organsised the crew into sections. We now have Eeeeediot doing mapping and Mage_Burner working on the Monster Database. These are two important jobs, which were left undone for a long time. This is gonna change now that staff are doing it as their main job. We're also working on new guides and more!

    Finally news!! » 

    Whow we are finally settled on NEW SERVER! We are sorry about all these problems but even as this move was long planed it become necessary before we was ready to do it painless for you. After cracker attack had compromised security of old server we decided to move on to a new server and spend our time building things here and we lost 1 or 2 days more but now with new server we hope that we will be able to offer you more and better information.

    This move included new IP address for server that asked for DNS change so many was unable to reach until its Internet service provider doesn't update its cache. Also if someone use programs to speed connection many times they write IP address directly to file called HOSTS on your computer so if they can access Arenascape.net or tip.it probably this is problem.

    Thanks you very much for your patience and support in hard times like this if you see something that is not working please fell free to report on any @tip email. As Always remember that site like our can live only with your support and that if nothing else you can always help by checking if any of sponsors have something interesting to offer.
