Just been posted on Runescape Website:

Thank you to all those of you who took part in the historic RuneScape Referendum, which ended on Friday. We received an incredible 1.2 million votes, with a united 91% of you voting for the restoration of free trade and the Wilderness. We have heard your call and will be restoring these much loved features to RuneScape on Tuesday 1st February.

The clock is ticking and you have just two weeks to get ready for this monumental update. To help you prepare, we will be releasing a series of guides, FAQs and expert advice about the Wilderness and free trade, so that players both old and new can get ready for this epic release.

Now it is up to you to prepare for battle, level your account, gear up your armour and equip yourself for the ultimate Wilderness experience.

There is just one question left unanswered: are you ready?

I guess it won't affect me too much as before the removal I did not really make use of free trade and pking.

Although, had free trade been around when I got my fury ornament kit from elite clue right after elite clues came out I'd been richer than I am now :rolleyes:

Reacting impulsively and saying what's on your mind feels oh so good.. for a little, until you realize you just started WWIII.

Was hoping for a little info on the changes but i'm sure there will be another outlining it. Hmm 2 weeks for a pretty major update... I wonder when they really started work for this.

A clue hunt is supposed to be exciting! Adventure! Danger! Treasure!

Not that long I believe, for one the graphics team has barely any work, they already have the drop system in old code, the only things that remain are the development team looking for where to relocate the content and what would be allowed, and the coders to implent those decisions.

Actually I have run into less pvpers when old wildy was still around than into revs when clues directed me there... So for clues I think this is actually good. There is always a quiet world :shades:

Jagex told us how long it takes to develop quests from start to finish in the Dev Blogs, so we know how long their development cycle is. They must have been at least the QA stage when the first vote was released. Therefore, as if there was any doubt in the first place, the whole thing was already developed.

I've changed my mind: They made an outright lie here. Apologies to TS_Stormrage.

I hate to judge, but the pretense of having a referendum is just cabbage.
Not that it comes as a surprise. -.-

Probably before they even released the first poll, it was pretty obvious which way the players would vote so it would have probably made sense to them to work on it before and during the poll. The poll just got extra publicity for it.
Hopefully we'll get a post outlining changes being made soon to save speculation and so people can prepare for it.
