Probably a private server.

Whats a private server?

A server where someone has taken (stolen) the Runescape game itself, hosts it on a server, and allows others to play with them. Most private servers are taken of an image from around 2006, 2007, before summoning was implemented.

Presumably Runescape from 2006, before Jagex took a massive dump on the game.

Privately developed Runescape server that mimics all of the features and content that were available until some time around February, 2006

I can't remember exactly when the update came out, but at some point in time there was a massive trade update that lost Jagex millions of Runescape players. The update was supposed to make scamming and botting harder to do, but it placed massive restrictions across the board. Even the wilderness was changed because there was potential that it could be used if trading was not possible.

Basically, just giving stuff away was capped to X amount of gold depending on some factor, I can't remember. Drop trading became impossible. Wilderness kills yielded randomly generated loot... The whole thing was a mess. One of the single biggest failures I've seen in online gaming.

It doesn't refer to the private server in that context; it refers to the game's "golden age". Shortly after it, according to players, the game's quality rapidly decreased due to the company's decisions.

Warning Riot about it is basically saying "don't break your game like many other companies did in the past".

No.

Bad updates are bad. Simple. No one likes change, but everyone hates those updates unless they have moolah to blow.
