This is old news. I told everyone under the Rants thread of Jagex forum stating that this entire vote is means to restore the old RWT. Bots won and Jagex gave up. They want their cut of the profit so they're willing to accept money from botters to let them get back their stats/account and bot on a new macro until they make a better detection to track better bot programs.
It's like a game of chess. You beat me to posting it here but I'm working on informing the other main websites of RuneScape. Won't name them here obviously but this NEEDS to be spread all around to legit players to gather and give Jagex the trump card saying "Stop catering to botters. Stop roll backs. Just ban their ass! And NO MORE offering RWT for unbans!"
You beat me to this site but here is my 2 cents a bit late...
Support this thread if you're NOT a bot and you feel RWT to Jagex or ANYONE is an unfair advantage...

The following issue arose while talking to Duke Needles
about the recent unban of Duriel321
Checked and confirmed. The following is a direct quote from the link below. It is taken from Jagex's RuneScape page at Customer Support > Ban Appeals > Ban Appeal Reinstatement...http://www.runescape.../bans_and_mutes
Banned Account Reinstatement
If Jagex bans any account as a result of your breach of the Rules of RuneScape and you have exhausted the Offence Appeals Process, Jagex may, in its absolute discretion, give you an opportunity to make a fixed payment to reinstate the account.
Any membership credit that is associated with an account cannot be used to pay for such reinstatement. Please note that throughout the period during which the account was banned, any membership credit will continue to expire.
Jagex is not obliged to reinstate any accounts. You are not obliged to exercise the option to reinstate your account. If you are offered the opportunity, it is entirely up to you whether you make any such payment to reinstate an account.
Any gains or advantages that Jagex considers were made as a result of using macros shall be removed from your account. You accept that the account will be returned to you, adjusted by Jagex to take account of the cheating offence, and no discussion will be entered into regarding the status of a returned account.
I immediately hauled off to the source. Entered clan channel Mod MMG
and directed the statement to the active audience. Let them decide for themselves and spread the ill word that Jagex strikes yet again. First was bans against people that said Google or YouTube, then came price manipulation on Climbing Boots, now selling unbans for a set rate IRL.
I'll upload the video of my rank at Mod MMG
cc to YouTube later. I'll also be contacting all my fellow rioters for support on this issue: Forsandg, Logdotzip, NightmareRh. One of those would LOVE to jump in on this news.
As for the forum front. I've posted a topic under "Rants" to earn support for Jagex offering an "unfair advantage" to rule offenders.

Can anyone explain to me why changes take place in RuneScape that NOBODY voted in?
The entire "Bring back Wild" was a mere distraction from the TRUE matter at hand.
While they claimed it would put us back to the way thing were, it actually threw the game into an even deeper pit than ever before!
Take example this matter. Under Customer Support > Ban Appeals > Ban Appeal Reinstatement it claims the following.
(Quote from above shown in thread.)
What does this mean for us? It means botters can pay for bot programs to max every 99. Under the new policy where bots are no longer banned only rolled back -- they get famous for being combat 4 with a Fire Cape. THEN if they get banned for anything that isn't botting they can RWT to pay Jagex for something which ISN'T mere cosmetic benefit. They can buy a ban appeal with 100% success rate.
Imagine never having to worry about being banned again! Because you can throw down 50-100$ to Jagex and get back in the game.
After the summary, closing statement post made was...
The moron that made the new Customer Support > Ban Appeals page needs to get fired. If this took place under Mod Andrew's watch there would be no bots. He ruled this game with an iron fist.
What has Mod MMG brought to this game? He didn't bring HDif you recall that occurred under Andrew's reign.
No. What MMG brought to this game was GE which allows price manipulation of Climbing Boots. He also reverted the hard word of YEARS by Andrew to remove laundried money from crime organizations OUT of the game. It put a damper on bots that freely traded items to mains in case bot accounts were banned under Andrew's "no excuses" policy that first offense using any macro meant instant perm ban FOREVER!
Another thing MMG brings to game is a vote where bots can vote 10 per second to bring back RWT. Now that RWT is here there was a hidden update to the appeal policy including the "unfair advantage" for those with riches in RL to no longer fear the banhammer.
If you agree Jagex seems to have gone to the dark side sign this thread. If you feel paying for unbans is in good intentioned for RuneScape reply with your reasoning for this support of Jagex.
Thanks. And happy 'scaping to everyone!
