this is so stupid... they determined years ago that ss wasn't a danger to them whatsoever... last time all ss had to do to become "legal" was to remove direct links to specific servers. ss doesn't change or even interact with the code of the actual game, it's really just a client within a client... I guess they figured since people are pking again they wanted to annoy pkers again by making the fastest way of looking someone up illegal :roll:

So if a J-Mod sees one of my screenshots with SK tag on it, I'm up for ban?



lame.

I think someone needs to go find the quote with Jagex saying it was legal. Personally, I think mod Seven is full of [cabbage] and doesn't know what he's talking about. There are so many Jagex mods now I feel like they lose communication sometime. This could just be a situation where he never got the memo. lol.



And I don't care. I'm still using SwiftKit. Ban me, Jagex. Do it. Lose a customer of four years because you want to place a pointless rule in the game.

Who cares, I see no benefits to using SS. RS has just about everything SS has now.




Quicklinks? High scores barely an inch away? MP3 player? IRC Built in? Calculators? Timers and Stopwatches? Notepad?

No?

Allright.


Quicklinks? Download the quicklink add-on to Mozilla Firefox.

Highscores? Who cares what rank you are in a skill, you can still see how far you are from a level in game.

MP3 player? Try iTunes.

IRC? Clan chat.

Calculators? Tip.it.

Timers? Worthless.

Notepad? Your computer comes with that.




But its so much more convenient to have it one click away, than having to go through alot of stuff or have other windows open, being able to do everything while playing is what makes people use SK.



Like an in-car radio, you dont NEED it, you can use your own radio, but it makes it so much easier having it built in.





Personally, as with last time, i doubt this mod knows what they are talking about, or it will get overturned again very soon, hell, i'm not going to remove SK. SK provides no in-game advantages over others, and its so obvious that it isn't a security risk, i'd estimate at least 10k people use Sk, and thats a low estimate, if it was going to be a security risk, it would easily be known.

Word.



And Jagex doesn't even state what's so dangerous about using Sk (besides losing your account due to a virus, keylogger, etc., but many users haven't had the problem for the past year...).



Unless they edit their message and state what's so "dis-advantageous" about Sk, users will continue to use it.

Not only that, but doesn't EVERY SINGLE PLAYER have equal access to SK?



C'mon Jagex, step your game up.

Either way, if you decide to carry on using it, its near on impossible for them to find out unless you post screenies. #-o



I'm happy with firefox and microhelper anyway.

If you should ban swiftkit, ban IE and firefox because they are "3rd party"

Just because a jagex mod comes out and says swiftkit is illegal means im going to stop using it, no im not, it will take a front page post to make me consider it.

There is no basis to say that Swiftkit links directly to game worlds like SwiftSwitch did.

Ive used both and I see why SwiftSwitch was banned. This is very petty to ban something if it doesnt violate anything.

If no third party software is allowed, does that mean no firefox?




That's sure what it sounds like. It also sounds like some major mixed up priorities on Jagex's side.

There's not many posts on here atm, but I haven't bothered reading them [yet]. Just want to say I'm getting a little tired of Jagex's annoying persistence with this kind of stuff.

I'll just program my own damn client. Suck on that Jagex!



This is stupid. Maybe Strider can release the source code to Jagex for them to look over each update? This way, Jagex can be sure that SK is safe. But then ago,











and dont say Strider could re-upload it with malicious code etc....

I really doubt they are going to ban 100,000+ Players cause Mod seven is full of [cabbage] and he doesn't know what he's talking about. I will gladly continue to use SK.

Three months banishment to 9gag is something i would never wish upon anybody, not even my worst enemy.

I can't believe they're making this mistake again. Esp. with Mod MMG as the current CEO; he seems to know much more than previous CEOs about players' feelings towards this kinda stuff. Chances are that the mods had no clue what they were talking about though.

wait, they call it "Swift Kit" in the post.... Its actually called "SwiftKit" therfore, through a loophole in their failure system, we can use Swiftkit, but not "Swift Kit".
