I found my old Photobucket account, and it looks like I still have hundreds of RV-related pictures on there. So this is one of those image-dump / memory-lane topics.

Here goes.

Image

The original "Village" logo mock-up, I'm pretty sure I only showed it to a handful of people.

Image

Mock-up for the RV stat signature project. The project of course was never finished, as is tradition.

Image

My original woodcutting signature. Man that brings back memories. If you can't tell, that's the Edgeville yew building. How it used to look, anyway.

Image

Jackstick smiley because I'm a narcissist. Goten made the :awesome: , I added the rest.

Image

Mock-up of the renegade website Digital-Complex. I think we're still calling this a "work in progress" so that Pyro doesn't have a nervous breakdown.

Image

The emergency logo that indicates the end of times are among us.

Image

Remember when we sold apparel? Did anyone actually buy anything? I wanted to get the fuzzy bunny but it was discontinued or something.

Image

Santa :awesome: by Goten. Why didn't we ever keep this around?

Image

My RV2 mock-up for the guide buttons.

Image

Friend of Hiker with greenery around it. I actually like this one more, I dunno why I never submitted it.

Image

Super Chat Mod? I dunno.

Image

Mock-up for the RV Podcast. Another Fuzzy Bunny project.

Image

RV Maps button! We file this one under the "almost happened" section.

Image

The final mock-up of RV2's mainpage. This represents about two years of tweaks from the very original design.

Image

A closer look at the Navigation that never was.

Image

I don't know the story behind this. I think it was meant to induce seizures?

Image

RV Christmas tree. Basically everyone added an ornament to the tree. This is a very early version, the final version had way more stuff on it. Mine is the red ball on the bottom of the tree.

Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image ImageImage Image Image Image

Skill guide banners, made by Sarah (Frizoid). It's a goddamn shame that these never got put to use.

Image Image

Some other Wizard designs. Only slight differences.

Image Image

Weekly Poll sidebar mock-up. Clearly I was feeling optimistic about that vote count.

Image

Items Database mockup. I was never too happy with this design, to be honest.

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

In case you thought I had any drawing talent, allow me relieve you of that misconception. The donor logos were designed like this; drawn very large at first, and then shrunk down so as to make them look less Fuzzy Bunny. If it's stupid and it works, it's not stupid!

Image

The original staff for the Wizard icon. Halfway through, I realized that I was subconsciously drawing Saruman's staff.

Image

More buttons. The lovely colorful icons were designed by Goten.

Image

Remember Signature of the Week? Well that tanked after a few years, so we brought it back as the shittier Signature of the Month. I think we managed to crank about 6 or 7 months out of that before it got to the point where we were almost begging people to make and submit sigs.

Image

More RV2.

Image

Donation sidebar, linking to the page where we send money for Hiker and Henner's personal bills.

Image

Favicon designed by Goten.

Image

Halloweenstick designed by Goten.

Image

Some tinkering.

Image

Twitter sidebar and unintentional foreshadowing of our eventual demise.

Image

Longer version.

Image Image Image Image Image Image Image

News icons, designed by Steely Mallon.

Image

My first attempt at the donor logos.

Image

One of our Facebook and affiliate logos. Never used because no one cares about our Facebook page, and no other site saw much of a benefit to affiliate with us.

Image

RuneScape mouse I won for some contest hosted by Jaron. This was back when Jagex still loved us.

Image Image

My mock-ups for the interactive world map. Another "almost happened".

Image

One of Pyro's old avatars? I didn't design it but I saved it cuz I thought it was cool.

Image

More RV2. These ones that are scaled down were scaled down for announcements, I think I saved the full sized ones on the old RV server.

Image

Mock-up for quest guides. Could've been better.

Image

Something Frank requested I make for him. I think he was using it as spray in Counter Strike or something.

Image

Some RV2 search bar designs because I was bored.

Image

One of my earlier newspage designs.

Image

Villager sidebar!

Image

I dunno. A rank for people who have a Facebook account? I don't remember.

Image

Turns out some websites were desperate enough to steal our content, so Glod asked me to make a hotlink image!

Image Image

A couple other newspage designs. I had a lot of freetime back in the day.

Image Image

Mobile RV!

Image

Tweedy leaking the fact that we're hiring new chat mods. His solution was to kick everyone out so they didn't see the message.

Image

Living that netbook life.

Image

More sidebar shenanigans.

Image

The RV2 design prior to mine and A5chow's involvement. I should clarify that a lot of my designs and mock-ups were heavily influenced and directed by A5chow.

Image

Hiker's tweak on my navigation bar. We thought it looked too World of Warcrafty.

Image

Someone said my avatar needed more cowbell. Goten obliged.

Image

Proposed design for a multi-mod elder rank. Looks Fuzzy Bunny stupid.

Image

Frank's signature during his Marxist phase.

Image

Pink Month Frank.

Image Image Image Image Image Image Image

"Years at RV" icons. Sorry, I didn't make any past 7.

Image

Jackstick & Jaron for Supreme Dictatorship.

Image

The original donor icon designed by Hiker. You can see where I got my inspiration. I actually liked his more, but he had deleted all the rest.

Image Image

My offline/online icon submission. We went with Goten's designs instead because his fit better with the rest of the theme.

Image

Pyro3000 when he went full Majin and got demodded/banned. I forgot what it was he actually did.

Image

Beard Month smiley. Me or Goten, can't remember.

Image

The Pink Panthers clan. This is very likely, in no uncertain terms, the greatest RS clan to have existed for less than 3 hours.

Image

For several days, I was the highest ranked lvl 98 WCer in the game :awesome: 1xp away, was saving it for the party.

Image Image Image Image Image Image Image

Donor sigs I made for people who donated to my 99wc party. It was actually a really big turnout. Lots of RVers, lots of my wc friends, my Falador friends, old clan mates, Order of Cabbage friends... probably the single most fun day I've had on RS.

Image

Monopoly days, Pogo era. Muffin Attak Fuzzy Bunny up the whole game so everyone except Tweedy bailed, and it was just a 1v1 for a while.

Image

Poopcat. :poopcat:

Image

I don't know what the hell this is. I didn't make it.

Image

Our "Get Well Soon" card that we made for Hiker, following his long period of illness.

Image

I met this guy WCing in Edgeville, he and his friend were harassing everyone. He asked to wear my phat and I said no. This is how he responded.

Image

More Pink Panthers nonsense.

Image

I dunno what this is. I guess a few of my RS friends and some RVers wanted to get together and say spoon.

Image

94 WCing. Miss my Edgeville crew.

Image

PMing Zezima because why not?

Image

Kah Bah Gee! I spent a lot of time with the Order of Cabbage, really fun group of people. I think this was my first cabbage bombing with them.

Image Image

My avatars on the Order of Cabbage forums, looking badass.

Image

When DragonCrusher1 changed his name to DragonCrusher. I didn't make this, I think it was Quan.

Image

Some RVer asked me to make this avatar for them. I think it was removed within a day.

Image

90 WC. Those are a bunch of old RVers.

Image

Applequest needed a new sig, this was my Fuzzy Bunny submission.

Image

Some RVer needed a sig of his character. No one responded to his topic, so I posted this. I don't think he used it.

Image

Avatar I made for an RVer.

Image Image

RV 2003 halloween party. This party is the reason why I joined RV. A friend let me log into their second account so I could be at that party.




K That's all.

Man seeing all of the RV2 designs makes me melancholic that it never became a reality... It was a project worthy of completion if any of the RV projects were :(

That Zezima one was funny. I remember a interview with him that said his PMs are worse than world 1 when he goes public.

That's a nice gathering of pictures! I wonder how many of my RuneScape pics I haven't posted. I miss hosting house parties for RV. :P

That Halloween event was the first RV event I went to also.

A lot of those design pictures remind me of the time we wanted to revamp our skill guides yet there were barely any volunteers and someone (that didn't play Runescape, of course) decided there had to be a set structure to every guide despite there being significant differences between each skills. Then the project died in the ass not long after, partly because I was one of the few volunteers and removed the guide I had been working on as I didn't want to follow some silly rigid and irrelevant structure. Good times!

Flash chat brings back memories. I remember one time Garth posted a shortened link to the chat room, so it caused everyone to leave and re-enter. Good times.
