    Additionally, in the spoiler below, you may find all of the correct answers.

    Spoiler for Answers:

    1. Name all former members of the Rune-Server Official Server development team

    This question in particular is not only difficult to answer, but realistically, we probably should have rephrased it as I am sure even we do not quite have each and every single iteration down. However, below is a rough timeline of some of the eras:

    1. Xerox, Jukk, Olli, Wolfpack, Bezza, Guthan, Thiefmn6092, Dodian, Gander, Zachera, Mastav, Dan, Kevy, InzInz (Yes, even Kevy!)
    2. Peterbjornx, Graham, Scu11, Sean, Thiefmn6092, Blakeman8192, Arian, Cascade
    3. Lenin, Leanbow, Sir Dave, kLeptO, Galkon, Jeff

    Getting a point required at least three names. An additional bonus point was given to Graham for having the largest number of correct names.

    2. List all domain names Rune-Server has had over its history


    3. Name a forum theme Rune-Server had other than the current themes

    1. Satellite
    2. Misty
    3. Dark Fantasy
    4. Vision Green

    4. Name a prominent feature that disappeared from the Rune-Server header after the vBulletin 4 migration

    The intended answer for this question was "Did you know?". But webmail/email, pastebin, and the various databases were also valid answers.

    5. Which two users infamously claimed to have successfully bruteforced the XTEA keys used to encrypt maps?

    The original intended answers were @Richard1992 and @Lmctruck30. However, as Graham pointed out, Light232 also made similar claims. All three users are valid answers, getting a point required two out of the three.

    6. Complete the following: "A whole class just to _____ a database? ____ ___ __ ____ ______ _____.____ hence ___."

    A: A whole class just to mange a database? this can be done though hence Md5.

    7. Name three discontinued forum ranks

    Any of the following three would have been valid answers:

    1. RSPS Cleaner
    2. ShoutBox Moderator
    3. Trial Moderator
    4. Executive Moderator
    5. Administrative Assistant
    6. Server Developer
    7. Global Moderators
    8. Sectional Moderator
    9. Supervisor
    10. Official MiddleMan

    A: Higher revision RuneScape items, such as godswords, dragon fullhelm, etc.
