Petition Against Insight Venture Partners

Recommended Posts

The best way to protest is simply to cancel your subscription and never buy a a single spin. In our capitalisitc society people listen to money, or the lack thereof. Petitions are nice, but there are probably a 99% chance that no one from jagex or the evil investment firms will even glance at this. (but for you enjoyment I shall sign it anyways).

uh

 

they've probably already garnered enough money to represent memberships for...well, everybody that quits

 

YOU HAVE ALREADY BEEN REPLACED

 

YOUR REACTION NO LONGER MATTERS

 

"oh, hey, somebody quit. i would feel bad but the guy next to him just bought like two year's worth of subscription, but we didn't actually give it to him, so he's gonna keep on playing anyway and paying for it"

 

people just keep shoving me away and ignoring the importance of this whenever I bring it up

 

hell, investors probably don't even care if the game burns out unfulfilled

 

basically, they just liquidated the game, and they've got their money, and they have it NOW (the paramount concern to avarice is massive short term gains), rather than having to pay for upkeep for several more years and dragging everything out and incurring overhead

 

as far as they're concerned this shit was a SLAM DUNK for capitalism

I'm not convinced that if just every subscriber (or at least a majority) cancels, jagex would still pull even from the spins. The problem, of course, is not enough players reacting to this and just decide to 'live with it". They continue to suffer under the pretense that this is still the same game they have played for xxx long when it has fundamentally changed and continue fund the corrupt jagex.

i beleive the only way to get a reaction from JaGEx is if a mass (at least 80%) of players boycotted the game untill it was removed.

 

but sadly theres no way that would happen so all i can say is R.I.P. Runescape.

I bet this wouldve worked when jagex added restricted trade too

 

The difference there being that they introduced it to stay afloat, gave plenty of advance warning and explained their reasoning. In fact, I supported them over that decision.

Idc about your support Jagex likely Pumped this out because they know that in 2-3 years rs will be nearly dead

You will have to speak with your currency if you want them to listen. ;)

 

Anything else will fall of deaf ears.

Course, since your lack of currency says nothing compared to the currency currently spilling into their laps from the less restrained people, why the hell would they listen to you anyway? You have less leverage than a seesaw with a hinge in the middle.

As an individual, you are correct, however if a large number of people become dissatisfied with the course Runescape is headed then the revenue figures would likely fall. If this does not happen, then they must be doing something right. More power to them if the latter is true, and may the ridiculous (in my opinion) decisions continue.

Worth a read: [qfc]15-16-335-63686317[/qfc]

thread was locked, I do not mean to criticize pmods on the rsof as a whole, but some are either overworked (not reading threads properly before locking) or incompetent, I have had several valid threads locked on the rsof with no real reason given, and the 'highlight' system is a joke, I have never seen a single thread unlocked after being locked.

 

that aside that is an interesting post that he actually got a response from Insight, however I still see it having little impact. (read it before it is eaten by the useless forum system of deleting everything after 50 pages).


Check it out, huge amount of effort has gone into this massive mod!

or, y'know, we could just copy it down

 

MODS: Please DO NOT titlesurf, I have NOT attacked Insight, or posted any personal information. This is constructive, and I feel this needs to be heard.

 

Insight called this afternoon. Cross my heart and hope to die. These ruthless investors, these heartless people... apologized to me...?

 

Yep! Believe it or not Mr. Crisses and Mr. Horing called and apologized for the actions that I had come into when I visited their offices a few days ago.

 

You see, they explained, some RuneScapers have been sending their employees death threats, and that just 2 days prior somebody had come into their building and the cops had to remove him.

 

Let me interrupt this post momentarily to tell everyone this is ABSOLUTELY NOT the way to handle your problems/rants/etc. There is no excuse for this behavior, and no matter how much I despise an update, I will NEVER support or encourage actions like this. The very thought somebody could do this saddens me, and makes our community look bad.

 

Tangent aside, they further informed me that they did not anticipate the update would have this kind of reaction from the community and that they are further investigating and researching it.

 

Also, they accepted the petition, and encouraged me to send along whatever other materials I should desire.

 

I know many of you won't believe me. I know even more will claim I'm e-faming, but this is what happened.

 

I was pleasantly surprised at IVP's calling to apologize, and may I say that, while I'll still grumble about "corporate greed" every now and then like old ranting men like me do, their courage, their principles and morals caught me offguard and I was very happy with their response.

 

Take the above for what you will (except the no death threats part, seriously NOT COOL guys), but that's my story. That's what happened.

You're confusing a company with a government. The owners of Jagex aren't elected, why on earth would they care about petitions and protests? As long this update remains profitable, it will not go away. So if you wanna change something, think of way to make it less profitable. Instead of a petition, why don't you try organising a mass unsubscription or something, which (if it works) might actually have a chance.

 

Whilst I have cancelled my subscription, many feel that they simply can't stop being members, for whatever reason, and so I fear that, if a mass unsubscription were attempted, many of those who supported it would end up not actually taking part. This way, everyone who supports the petition can sign up and their name will be added to a list of those firmly against it, regardless of other action.

+1. While i loathe the update, I still enjoy the rest of the game. im not about to quit over content i can ignore. thats why i signed the petition.

Mass unsubscription only works if you can set a large example, and convince everyone that it's ok to enjoy the F2P game for a while (can still get DG tokens :thumbsup: )...

On top of that, you'll also have more success of everyone cancels their subscription over a set period of time, say, the three months that span finals and summer holiday break...
