Release HIGH DEFINITION for Old School RuneScape
Since OSRS was born out of the supports from a site made from Change.OrgI decided to make a petition from this site. A petition supporting the development of HD Graphics and adding them as an OPTIONS to Old School RuneScape. It would essentially be the game as it was in 2008, and those who choose to play on standard Old School definition can choose to do so and if HD is too much for your computer. But for those of us who do want an HD graphics can use it. A lot of players including myself, moved into Old School because of the simple fact that it didn't have Evolution of Combat. HD graphics when it was release was a positive thing to a lot of players and it also brought in new members into the game. Other than making the game more visually appealing, this offers no advantages to players who use HD or SD. 2008 in my opinion, stayed true to the 2007 styling, but just enhancing the existing models. The HD graphics will attracts new players coming into RuneScape. With the current graphics it has, there is no doubt that so many new people get automatically turned off by it. Anybody brand new to RuneScape will more than likely see RuneScape 3 as it is visually more appealing than Old School. They wouldn't even try Old School after experiencing how bad RuneScape 3 is. This will turn Old School into a slowly dying community. This would change that! With HD graphics, the game would be visually appealing enough to likely bring in new players as well as satisfying existing players who would love to play Old School with 2008 Graphics. If it is an optional thing? Why does it hurt? I refuse to believe that Jagex doesn't have a saved files somewhere for one of the biggest if not, the biggest update in RuneScape history. PLEASE SUPPORT
Stop Poisoning Paradise! Stand With Kaua'i in their Battle Against Excessive Pesticide Use
The island of Kaua'i, Hawaii, is a world treasure -- ecologically unique, rich in spirit and culture, and famous through to ancient times for its dramatic beauty and brave defenders. It is also Ground Zero in the fight against Chemical Companies and the excessive use of pesticides in our food, on our lands, and directly on workers and people in nearby communities. Dow, DuPont Pioneer, Syngenta and BASF, four of the largest Chemical Companies in the world, have turned parts of Kaua'i into one of the most toxic chemical environments in all of American agriculture. Exploiting 3-4 growing seasons a year and lax oversight, they experiment with extremely excessive amounts of the most toxic agricultural chemicals in their bid to develop pesticide-tolerant crops (i.e. the food we eat). Globally their aim is to increase profits by selling more chemicals and patented seeds that only work with their chemicals. Locally, the people and land of Kaua'i and other places around Hawaii are bombarded almost daily with neurotoxins, carcinogens, endocrine disruptors, and mixed pesticide-cocktails with unknown and untested impacts. But the World is Watching. We need to show these companies that we will not stand by as they exploit people and the land for their own profits. Sign the pledge today to stand with Kaua'i and Hawaii in telling the chemical companies to stop poisoning paradise, and join the global movement to stop them in their drive to hook our food system on their chemicals.
