Look



Stop [bleep] saying legal and illegal.

It's stupid, and you all sound like idiots saying it. Nothing about runescape can be illegal(except maybe real world trading) because there are no LAWS involved.



Something can be against the rules, that doesn't make it illegal. You're not going to jail for breaking runescape rules. so stop calling it illegal. It's just pissing me off.


Ouch lol, bad day?



Of course we can talk about illegal and not illegal. We're talking about a game, so you need to see it in a games context. Illegal = you will get banned. Legal = you won't.

IRC? Clan chat.




Have you ever been on IRC even?



Doesn't sound like it.


Same could be said from like 99.9% of the swiftkit/swiftirc users - most of them haven't been to a real IRC network. (which respects the very first rule that IRC should be free).. Most of them don't even understand their own pc and how it connects with the network. - So for those IRC won't be a real advantage...



Now the other thing I like to mention is that it DOES matter if swiftkit would (or would not) be allowed. Not for those who use it, but because we should always strive to get at the internet as much freedom as possible!

First they came to fishing
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't fishing

Then they came to the yews
and I didn't speak out because I didn't cut yews

Then they came for the ores
and I didn't speak out because I didn't collect ores

Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.

Yeah I don't know if it has been said (probably has), but even if it is "illegal," how would Jagex even know that we are using it? I don't think they can tell... :|

Personally I dislike SwiftKit users, seeing as the majority of them are pures.

This may not apply to everyone, but I've noticed almost all SwiftKit users are a bunch of self-centered, arrogant sons of [bleep].




Nice generalisation. The first thing you ask someone on Rs is whether they use SiftKit?

Plus I think the whole teenage girl thing will end soon (hopefully), because my girlfriend is absolutely in love with him(she is 18), and im beginning to feel threatened by his [Justin Bieber] dashing looks.

You really do talk alot of [cabbage].



I'm not suprised this has happened in the slightest, but I really do wish Jagex would make up their minds. I have no problem not using third party software, but I wish they could simply stick to what they said before.



I think SK is much more convenient - and it's a pain in the arse to open 12 windows when you can have everything in 1. But it isn't really a big deal. SK doesn't make players any better - it just saves a few seconds here-and-there.

Please edit the title as it does not reflect current developments that you have already updated upon the body of the topic. Keeping it this way will just incite people who don't RTFA.

They can't detect who is using SK.



Also



Like hell I'm getting off SK.




And last but not least

Your extremely high level of stupidity really does make me laugh.

I'm pretty sure that there's little to no correlation between SK users and pures lol

Correct. The Swiftkit community consists of a random assortment of 'scapers, and not just mainly a certain group.

I made this post 2 days ago, and at that time it DID reflect what was going on, but you are right. I'm hesitant about changing the title, as that might make people think this is a new thread.



If a mod decides this topic has run its course, then I'm cool with them locking it.



Another issue is I haven't seen this "official statement" either. I saw another Jmod post saying Swiftkit is okay to use. One said it isn't and another said it is.

really? 3rd party, who cares it's not like they're claiming its their's. It's a device to help runescapers in-game to use different tools to make the game a lot easier, instead of wasting time opening like 5 tabs, starting to lag, and listening to music, even worse.



swiftkit should be legal.





watch that please, it is my first tehnoobshow style vid!! ^^ :thumbsup:

Very nice smartass, you've just showed your complete lack of understanding.



Next time, when there's a topic about gaining experience in skills, why don't you post a definition of experience too. I'm sure it won't include "clicking a yew tree and getting a log".




...? bedman's post was relevant



though he should have simply quoted magzar, as his post offered contrary evidence to magzar's opinion.

Oh nvm, I didn't read the second explanation properly. Seems like it backed up what I said.

"I don't use it, therefore no one else needs to."



Can we please do away with this idiotic argument. You really have to be stupid to find it convincing.

This has been proven false, Jagex simply does not encourage anyone to use outside programs to play Runescape for your own safety.
