Over the last two years, Maxcape has grown from literally nothing, into the much used tool that it is today. Over the last few months, I've been wondering why we have all these people coming to the site every single day, but no way for us to interact with each other. The comments on front page news posts is a start, but it is extremely limited.
The Max/Completionist Cape Calculator is a RuneScape tool that will help you figure out just how far (or close) you are from maxing your skills. It does this by using your stats in the hiscores. This means, unfortunately, that those not in the hiscores will not be able to be calculated.
Due to a lack of developer tools from RuneScape, it's not possible to track other Completionist requirements. You can do so yourself, however, by creating a profile. Creating a profile is not required to use the Calculator, but it does give you access to some cool features, including: keeping track of your Regular and Trimmed Completionist Cape requirements, setting checkpoints in your skills (displays experience gained since that date on your Calculator page), and just having a cool profile page to share!
You can set a default name on your calculator page by hitting the button to the left of the search bar. This will make it so you can skip past this page in the future and get straight to your calculator.
Thank you for all your support and feedback. I couldn't have gotten this far without you!
As some of you my remember, I was originally hesitant to include ads here, but I was left with no choice because of my financial situation at the time. Since then, I have recovered and gotten back on my feet. While this has left me with less time to work on programming, it has left me with the ability to cover costs on my own.
Today, I'm happy to announce that I have fully removed ads from maxcape.com! If you see any that I might have missed, please let me know so that I can remove it. I always feel like I should give back to everyone for the love and support they have provided for this site, and this is, in my opinion, a great way to do it.
For those of you who would like to help out in some way, there is a paypal donate button on the main page that you can use to donate anywhere from a penny to however much you can spare. These donations are always greatly appreciated, and I personally reply to each one with a thank you and a personal letter. While donators used to receive Ad-Free browsing, I will be finding a new advantage for them.
In other news, I feel like I owe you guys an update, and an explanation of sorts. In recent months, I have been very quiet, with no new updates to the site and no updates. This is, as partially explained above, at least partially due to the fact that I have work and school, and have much less free time than before. However, that's hardly an excuse in my eyes.
I have two other projects currently, one a clan website for a friends clan, and one a personal project that I am receiving college credits for. While I'd rather not go into detail to either currently, I will say that I have been slacking on these as well.
There's nothing to blame on this besides myself. So, from today forwards, I am resolving to get back into programming work. I am going to finish the forums (sorry about that forums link in the navbar...), then finish my friends site, and then get back into active development of maxcape. I have some pretty big plans that I think you would all enjoy, but more on that later.
Thank you everyone for sticking with the site and continuing to use it. It means a lot to me that you are all still here after my longer-than-expected break, and I hope you all will enjoy what I have planned for the future.

Winners have one week to contact me to claim their prize. I will add each winner in-game and attempt to get in contact with them when possible.

Edit 6/30/14: I have rerolled those who have not claimed their prize yet. The following names have lost their Bond reward as I have not been able to get in contact with them after two weeks. I will no longer try to contact them, but if they do get in contact with me, they are still elligible for 1m rsgp.

If you haven't already, take a look at the Design Choices post.
As the forums near completion (this is a way bigger project then I originally expected :P), I'm starting to work out the initial list of Categories and Subforums that will be available upon launch. It is very easy to add more, so don't take this as a final list, and if something comes up later down the line, it can always be added.
So far I have the following list
- Bug Reports
- Quest Help
- Quest & Lore Discussion
- Tech Help
- Forum Games
I would love to see what you guys think of this current list, and if you have anything to add or change, please let me know in the comments below!
