NOTE: About 10 minutes after I took the screenshot, a PMOD dropped in. He said he muted 24 of them... unfortunately after he left 10 more appeared out of nowhere.


Jagex needs to change their game, and give more power to its players. The tools we have to combat spammers and RWTers are limited, virtually non-existant. I know there are only so many player moderators out there, perhaps we need a new system?

What I propose is straight forward:

1. Allow all players to freeze their chat windows. Allow all players to right-click "Report Abuse" when their chat windows are frozen.
2. Allow all players to send in as many reports as they please, don't limit them to one a minute.
3. When enough players send in abuse reports, a 1 hour auto-mute is placed on the offender. If the offender is automuted X times in Y hours, they're muted for Z hours (yes, there is potential abuse to this system, but I believe it'll help a ton)
4. Limit the number of characters a player can send in the chat window per minute based on some criteria (highest level/total levels/total experience/distance traveled in game)
5. Automatically flag players that type the same thing over and over again (these player's threshold for number of reports required for auto-mute are drastically lowered).

They should remove the report limit for regular players as well. I've always thought that's why they can get away with this; unless there's a Pmod nearby, it'll take half an hour to even send reports for all of those guys.

I dont like getting muted because a bunch of butthurt players decided to report me. I think you overestimate the integrity of the general runescape population by a lot.

I'm not sure you'd be affected by these changes, except you'd be able to get muted quicker.

They ruin my game experience. They make it impossible to chat with anyone you don't already know. They make runescape a RPG instead of a MMORPG.

I'm only annoyed by the ones that pm me. I leave my private chat to open, but it can force me to turn it to friends only when I enter the GE.

I agree 100%. I got heavily involved in a clan chat which chased around these bots when clan chats came out all those years ago.

When I first started bot busting in the chat, Jagex moderators used to drop in often, come bot busting with us and collect the names of the bots to block all the ones in the same family of bots. As time went on slowly Jagex staff stopped visiting the chat, yet the ad bot problems became worse. It's very disappointing to see it's become this bad. The only way I can see this being fixed is hiring staff just to get rid of the ad bots, or giving out more severe punishments to users who RWT, if no one's buying the money, there's no point to advertise it.

At any rate, lol failex.

Wow.

So much for Jagex "having the bot problem under control" eh? Guess we already knew that was cabbage before they even said it.
I agree with your points, but I doubt there will be a change.

Agree with all but your fifth point. If you do that clans would be adversely affected.

Agreed with Y_Guy.

The 5th option would only hurt clans because during clan fights everyone tends to spam 'DF' or 'RSD' (depending on the clan obviously) over and over to locate a pile.

The report limit is a joke really. I see tons of macroers. Since I have a report limit I only report one so it doesn't affect my gameplay.

There's a clan chat in-game called "Ad Busters", generally if you ever see spam like this -- or even just one person, pop in there and notify a Player Moderator. There's generally several in there, depending on what time of day it is. They'll come and take care of them for you.

Give it up, Sees. And give in. (Bwhahahahahah!) Jagex won't do anything until it's almost too late. Find some way around it, bot operators have gone semi-professional on milking money out of the grind since Jagex are lenient on the matter.

Or if you feel it's that bad, move on to other games until something drastic happens within Runescape.

While I'm not sure if Sees pays for the game, I certainly do. I tend to ignore bots since they're so amazingly prevalent, but I expect SOME level of control from a pretty well developed company like Jagex. It's pathetic really. I'd much rather they focus on stopping the RWT/bot problem.

Silly goose, why are you bashing your head in when a quick glance at your status clearly gives way to uncertainty?

There is, but it's so abysmal it mightn't as well exist.

Runescape has more or less peaked, now. Unless they do something as game-changing as the game mechanics that make up Eve Online/Dust 514 you'll see it stay as it were, more or less.
