Aw man! This sucks. And by this, I mean the people whose self-obsessed nonsense created a bunch of work for you folks. If I thought you had reason to trust me to help in any way, I'd offer my time to work on sorting things out. This server has been a nice emotional support for me lately, I'm bummed to lose it (even temporarily).

Thank you to all the devs volunteering their free time and working to get this done. This server has attracted a lot of people lately, and surely a few bad apples with it. It is unfortunate but I have faith in the devs and that this server will live on for many years after this issue is resolved.

im sad to hear about a roll back... yesterday was my only day off this week and i played for like 4 hours lol
but i trust the judgement of the mods, if a roll back is needed. Go for it!
Hard to believe players would want to cheat on such a nostalgic game. Found this a couple weeks ago, and im so thankful.
patiently checking in on updates. Thank you for making this game possible. Hope the cheaters get lost.
like really, i thought we had a good community here. The players have been so humble.
see u all when its back up

Thank you everyone for spending their time and effort keeping this game alive.
Whatever actions are needed (such as a rollback), I am sure the people will understand.

Is there a way to donate to devs for their hard-work and efforts in keeping this game pure and awesome?

Thats a very nice thought but we don't take donations.

let me know if that changes, as i really respect some free devs that have brought this game to life as well maintain it. Furthermore, i may have a hard-drive that may have content from 2010-2020 of runescape clients.

We have always been hobbyists and volunteers so I don't see it changing. For RS clients you might have please see https://rs-archive.github.io/index.html Saddly I think the rewards are only for things before 2010 but if you find something from before then we don't have you can redeem a reward from a server admin.
