@neo: you didn't entirely answer both my arguements, but I'll try to answer your 'partial' one. Your arguement confuses me, as before, you sounded like someone who made one mistake and should've deserved it. However now, there are a few things that have left me partially-confused. Sure, you may have been around for longer, but as you clearly know, games change. Why should an update in the present affect things in the past? As far as i/many others see things, stuff you do in the past should be left...in the past. Your arguement is that 'I made one mistake in the past, and I deserve to get that settled/wiped, but newer people don't'. Here's a question: if someone got pk'd/killed for their items in the past, what should happen to them? Your arguement is that all people of the past should be forgiven/have this option. Therefore, if your arguement was correct, then jagex should give everyone who ever got scammed, killed in wildy, killed by a monster, or generally lost any items their items back. I still don't get your arguement 100%, and your 'I've played longer so I'm holier than thou' attitude hasn't exactly helped...
Sorry for not answering your questions, I didn't how they had any relevance to points I am trying to make.
People complaining about how its easier to train their character now with new updates should have had those options all along make no sense. You are right the game does change. Those are in game changes and updates... The Reinstatement of Banned Accounts isn't an in game update such as things added to the game. It is so different it makes no sense to lump them together. It just makes our debate confusing and way off topic. I understand what you are getting at here, but the difference between training in game changing throughout the years is way different than changing the way people can cheat and get away with it throughout the years.
I am not debating people losing items fairly in game due to wilderness pking and such, being scammed, killed by monsters their items back, that is completely ludicris and has nothing to do with what I am saying.
I can see how you being a new player could take me as an "I am better than you because I have seniority" or whatever, but that isn't what I am using for validation to receive fair treatment in getting my account back just like everyone else who has ever been banned. I think I have received cruel or unusual punishment based on how easy people can get away with cheating these days. I didn't think that way before this was released. All I am arguing is its unjust to just pick a date and say, ok you cheaters can get away with giving us money for your account back, and all y'all before can't. Thats all.
