      Shutting Down Salvage   03/05/2018

      Well...I've always hoped I wouldn't have to make this post, but I think it's time. Unfortunately, I'm going to be shutting down the server.  I just don't have enough time to bring you all the content you deserve.  It really does suck because I've put a bunch of work into the server, the website, and everything else that goes along with it, but it's time to accept it.  Besides not having enough time to develop what needs to be developed, the multiple $300 15-day advertisements, expensive premium listings, and other forms of marketing weren't really working for us, so it's hard to have the motivation to continue. What kept me going was you all, the players.  I loved the reactions I received after each update and the overall support for wanting to see us grow.  Many of you all have donated to help keep the server running, and it worked out for a long time, but we were just never able to get over that 25 online threshold.  Regardless, thank you to our generous donators.  We would not have made it this far without you all.  I must say it again...thank you. At one time, our community was strong and it seemed like only a matter of time before we would grow bigger, but something happened and that time has passed.  Other servers nowadays are just too far ahead of us with OSRS content that it's hard to compete.  Let alone, OSRS has snagged a bunch of private server players again because of how much content Jagex's team is pumping into it.  As a one-owner/developer private server, it's just too much to keep up with.  These other servers have entire teams on payroll thanks to their years of success.  It's difficult to measure up to these guys starting out by myself and not having enough income to support a few other developers. As far as the future goes, my vision is muddy.  I would like to think I'd be able to re-launch the server in the future once I have more time, but as a full-time employee of a tech company where I do software development 40+ hours a week, I'd like my hobbies/free time to not include programming.  If I do re-launch, you'll receive an email saying so.  Until then, I recommend checking out some of these other servers which I've been playing around on to try to spawn some ideas: Battlescape - It's a nice old school server with a ton of new OSRS features, but they do seem to pad their player count (I literally counted 35 people when it said over 100 were online). Survive-RS - This is a brand new server with a bunch of potential.  It's a survival-style take on OSRS, where there's zombies all over the place and you have to eat to replensih energy and scavenge for your equipment.  It's currently in beta, so there are some bugs, but the gameplay is very fun.  I see some similar qualities to myself in the owner as well. *Note, I was not paid to link these...I just enjoyed playing them. The website will be up until the middle of April and I'll be taking the server offline today.  Thank you to everyone who brought wonderful suggestions to the game and an awesome personality to the community.  Maybe we'll see each other again on another go around.  On behalf of the rest of the Salvage staff, thank you and farewell.   -Justin

    Thank you very much for the Support, Much appreciated. And I try,(: Like helping out as much as I possibly can. Either way, i will still be the same person, always there to help out. Rank/no rank. Doesn't take a rank to be a helpful person.

    Are you possibly able to disassemble the serp helm? I know for the Magic fang one, that was possible, but since I don't have a helm myself, it's the only one available for me to disassemble and reassemble. I know the Upgraded Fire cape, can be the Tok cape achieved either way, from Vote shop or Jad and Self-upgraded. As the code probably looks just for item name, and Not, has Upgraded a firecape via tokkul.

  13. requesting maxed forum rank, as I am a maxed player now.:D
  14. In-game Name: Mills - Main account -------------------------------------- Pure Pk - Pure account 4 lyfe - Ultimate Iron man ------------------------------------- Total Time Played (provide screenshot): Have you, or are you able to join our community Discord server? Yes, I am able to join the Discord server, I am currently already on the server, but will download to mobile phone as well, for more communication. Have you, or are you able to join our community Skype chat? I would have to setup a new skype account, but yes I would join the skype chat. Timezone: Eastern Time (ET) Age: 21. Staff Experience (Please do not disclose server names:) For this section of the application I do have plenty of server staff experience, as well as Ownership Experience. I have been staff a countless amount of times, and I am always close with staff with helping out either way, If I were to say "most experienced" I would be leaning towards Administrator/Administration. I also have been developers of forum sites and have forum CP knowledge. How many hours a day do you spend on Salvage? (2many) On average I try to play atleast 10hrs/day What time(s) are you usually on Salvage? (e.g 3am-7am) My current situation with being online salvage PS, is quite open, My girlfriend leaves for school in the morning around 7:15AM(ET) and i'm most of the time on right until 3PM(ET) doing multiple things and being very into the game. After 3PM(ET) I am still online but just not talking as much in general conversation, but questions I answer as soon as I see them, as I am most the time relaxing with the girlfriend watching Netflix until she goes to bed, 8:00-9:30PM then I play for another hour. Are there any days that you are unable to play Salvage? This one, I cannot answer, as I try to come on everyday. so, my answer would be, if something comes up short notice. Have you ever been warned or infracted by a staff member on Salvage? (If yes, please explain.): I have not. (that I can think of) What 5 qualities do you feel you possess that will make you an exemplary Salvage staff member? 1) Active 2) Started playing runescape back in like 2003-2004, Have lots of insight and knowledge of the runescape base. 3) Always trying to help players and always engaging myself in general chats. 4) A very friendly person. Always putting people first, before myself. 5) A strong mind, to keep the rules intact. In 3 short paragraphs, why do you feel you are right for the position you wish to acquire?: I believe that becoming a staff member of salvage-ps will be something that wont be second guessed or regretted. as I am very active , and I hope to become one of the staff members everyone can come to for help. Active to help out. I can rush on, to do testing/bugfinds, I'm always on the lookout for bugs/glitches to help improve the community. I really want to see is this server grow enormously, and I would love to become a part of the team, and with the amount of hours played aday, I could be a real asset for buggers and abusers within salvage-ps. (best I can do, as I suck at writing paragraphs about myself.) What do you hope to achieve if you are promoted?: What I hope to achieve is success for salvage-ps, I want to see this server grow, as I love the community and the playbase of this server, I will always try my best to make all new players love the community and make them want to stay, and it just goes on and on. If there is one rule you wish to change or address, what rule would it be? (Must answer) There really isn't any rule that I would think about changing or addressing, but this is about the closest I would get. and my opinion would be maybe after 1hr of birds being around you, and you don't move, you get logged out. (would have too fix some skills, ex; woodcutting for edz. when woodcutting birds come around you. and if in edz you' wouldn't beable to afk overnight and woodcut.) How do you feel about respect, loyalty, and rule enforcement as a staff member? Respect and Loyalty upon players is a MUST. especially towards staff members. Rule enforcement is no hassle for me, as I want to see this server grow, and we cannot have unappreciated players ruining that for us, rules will keep the server looking clean and make the gameplay that much better. ------- about the best I can write about my self, if any questions or acquires feel free to ask, as I'm not shy and am optimistic.
