Indeed as has been said a million times before: The vote is to gauge number interested in playing and thus financial viability and price level needed Votes with non intention to play artificially inflate this figure. If its artificially inflated pricing may end up cheaper, but this won't necessarily be good as there will be far less players than the price was designed to work for. Also stop trying to guilt people into voting who do not wish to, it's kinda lame and childish. I mean not once have any of us who not voted tried to guilt you people into not voting; we've simply said we aren't voting and why. You keep saying this and yet it is by Mod MMG's words wrong. In the 3rd post of [qfc]14-15-300-64238124[/qfc] Mod MMG wrote "Consider this, the more members that vote the cheaper it would ultimately be for everyone and hopefully reach the point where it doesn’t cost you a penny more and could simply be offered as part of your existing membership - Even if you don't intend to use it I think that's a nice thing to do for your friends." This means that Jagex is encouraging people to vote who do not intend to play on the servers. While I believe you have the right to vote or not vote, your reasoning that it would artificially inflate the numbers is false. Jagex want more people to vote because they realised that nobody is going to play if the votes don't get to 250k. The point is, if you don't want to play the servers then voting will only increase the amount of false votes on the poll (which at the moment seems to be very high, considering the amount of people claiming they have done multiple $2 votes).
