1) When MaSoRS was founded in 2003, what were the other active and biggest skilling communities/clans/services/businesses, etc.? none that im aware of 2) The drop parties attracted many people. Would it be ok to say that it was primarily these drop parties that caused the clan to grow over time? these are what attracted me to the clan way long ago 3) Did the creation of Mining Golds in 2009 affect MaSoRS at all? I am asking this because Mining Golds instantly became the most well-known Mining community. no idea what this is. 4) Has the MaSoRS clan always revolved entirely around Mining and Smithing or has there been a shift in focus in the course of the last 5-7 years? And if there has been a shift, why? i wouldn't say we focused on mining and smithing, but all skills. several times we set cities ablaze with firemaking and other stuff i can't remember. 5) I seem to have the impression from the history page on this website that MaSoRS might have been the biggest skilling clan of RSC and early RS2. Do you think that is correct or not? If not, what other clans were as big or even bigger? biggest that i knew of 6) On what is the clan's focus today? I can imagine that the release of the new high-level Mining content since 2009 (LRC, Elf City) might have been bad for MaSoRS. no idea. 7) Is there anything else you want me to mention about MaSoRS (that is relevant)? moo. 8) Would it be ok if I used one of the screenshots (on this clan's history webpage) in my e-book? The owner of any image I pick would be credited, of course. don't think any are mine but i don't care.
