The Players' Gallery (originally called the Postbag Gallery) was a place on the RuneScape website showing fanart sent in by players. It originally launched in October 2006, after being announced in issue 10 of Postbag from the Hedge.
Many times, a work was delayed from being posted for months at a time because of the sheer amount of entries the Jagex staff had to go through. They also had themes on some months, so art may have had its posting delayed to fit that theme.
In 2009, Jagex deleted all of the galleries except for 24 of the "best" artwork, put in three "Best of" galleries (Galleries 1-3), and ignored requests for the old pictures to be made available again. On 12 August 2016, all mentions of the players' gallery were completely removed from the website. Any previous links to them redirect to the Customer Support section. A few galleries were released after this, but they were limited to posts on the RuneScape Forums and newsposts.

Revival[edit | edit source]
Post-wiki[edit | edit source]
After the discontinuation of the Game Guide and its sucessor, the the Jagex RuneScape Wiki, Galleries have been released on the RuneScape Official Forums and in update newsposts. For some reason, the numbering started back at 48, resulting in two 48th Players' Galleries.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- On the day of release of the original Gallery 19, it included a picture of the Yu-Gi-Oh! monster "Thousand Dragon" under the title "Ancient Dragon". Due to plagiarism, the image was removed by Jagex and replaced by a picture of the King Black Dragon.
