I'm back!

Post by Ryuzaki on 5/10/2015, 9:40 pm

Hi there!

Since I haven't been online since sometime last year, I thought I'd make an introduction.

You probably don't know me, in my time here I was pretty reclusive. Razz I'm Ryuzaki, 16, and a returning member to both Runescape and SmokinElite. I played up until sometime last year, and enjoyed every second of it! I decided I needed to distance myself, however, due to my grades beginning to dip. I also couldn't find the time to fill my logs out regularly, and felt as though I was simply wasting mentors' time.

If you want to know a little more..
Spoiler:

What led you to Smokin Elite? My love of Runescape led me to discover merching, and eventually I joined chats that would give suggestions of items. I heard your name there. Razz
What do you hope to achieve while in Smokin Elite? Overall, knowledge. Sure, Runescape wealth wouldn't hurt, however more than that I value the knowledge behind it, so in time I might spread my learnings with others.
Have you ever been a member of a clan before? Back in the old days, yes. I always love clan communities, it's fun to chat with new people sometimes!
Do you currently know anybody in Smokin Elite? Apart from my old mentor, Minato, no. Sad I'd love to make new friends though! Like I said, I was pretty shy when I played before.
On a scale of 1-10, i) how interested are you in merchanting and ii) if you're interested, how experienced do you feel in it? 10 of course! I'd love to know everything there is to know, however experience-wise I'm probably around a 6-7. I'll get there though!
Do you have any short term and/or long term goals here? I hope to make new friends, as most of mine have quit RS, lol! As said before, I'd love to expand my knowledge of merching. Money-wise, longterm I'd like to achieve 1b.
What do you do in your spare time? Hmm, that's a hard one! I skate, tumble, dance, do MMA, soccer, track.. The list goes on, lol!
If other members wanted to contact you, what would be the preferred method? (IRC, pm, etc) Shoot me a PM on RS! My ingame name is Rue Ryuzaki, I'd love to have a chat!

Different from my scatterbrained self before, I thought it was about time to come back! I've found time to play again, and have been staying on top of my schoolwork, so I decided that I could enjoy myself a little bit, haha.

I'd also like to personally thank this website and the community within it, you guys are amazing! Starting off when I came here, I had something like 5m total, probably the most I've ever had. Upon leaving later on, the mentors' and helpful players around had helped me turn it into upward of 50m. For a Runescape noob like me, that was a breakthrough, so I thought I'd thank everyone here at SmokinElite! Smile

I plan to re-apply to the mentorship program, (If I could ever locate it in these forums, lol!), and become part of this amazing community once again. Very Happy

I don't think we have the mentoring program anymore. We used to have applications for ranks, trusted etc. but they seem to have been removed? scratch

Not exactly sure what happened to the program but i think its probably temporary to some extent..

Wel if i'm correct

the mentors for the investing group are :
Gildards
and the mentors for the flipping group are : there aren't any O_o
i'm pretty sure they removed the whole mentoring section all together, or i just don't have acces anymore witch would be pretty weird since i'm a mod

How many mentees are there in the investing group and in the flipping group? Maybe they were closed because lack of activity? Has Billious said anything as he is the manager of the mentoring program

I still have my 5 lessons from being a Flipping Mentee stored somewhere if you guys want to have a look at it. Topics covered were

Basics
Profit Percentage
Item Limits
Wealth Differences
Rare Flipping

That was like when I was a mentee 2 years ago so I'm not sure how much has changed since then Razz

as far as i know the mentee system was kinda the only part of the forums that still had decent activity, activity stopt when the last 2 flipping mentors left, there where still people applying to become a mentee at first but no one to accept them, witch left the mentee system as dead as the rest of the forums, and apperently moved the system en removed the aplications to it
