A Community Helper is a player selected by Jagex staff to assist and promote the community on the RuneScape Forums or Twitter. They were added to the game and forums on 18 January 2016, and number around 40 as of 2017. It is possible for a Player Moderator and/or Forum Moderator in addition to regular players to be a Community Helper.
Unlike a Forum Moderator, they have access to a limited number of tools. They have the ability to move a thread into, or between, the Helper forums. They also have the ability to close threads within the helper forums.
Community Helpers can be recognized by their in-game title Community Helper [Name], which also displays on the forums. It is possible to switch to a different title while being part of the team; and while not required, they are encouraged to wear the title while part of the team.
