Message of the week was a weekly message that players would see in the welcome screen or lobby. It featured a person or object with a piece of advice. There was a new one every Wednesday.

The Message would have a different person/object for every different message. During holiday events, the person/object would pertain to the specific event (e.g. Jack'o lantern for Hallowe'en, the Easter Bunny for Easter, or a snowman for Christmas.) On those certain holidays, the message would either say "Happy (Christmas/Easter/Hallowe'en)" or some other information regarding the event.

Along with the Message of the Week, on the "Welcome to Runescape Screen" you could find out how much members credit you had left, if Jagex had sent you any messages, if you had a bank pin, the last time you set your recovery questions, and if you had an email address registered.
