It needs to be harsh - both out of fairness to all the real cases out there and to deter frivolous claims.

False claims should definitely lead to a small suspension on the first time. Second time or higher, then it should be months or more at a time.

I imagine if pinned to the wall on this detailed system, they'd probably try to say that only oldschool has a system like that. '-'

And it assumes their server keeps detailed logs. It should, but you know.. JAGEX!!!!

I never understood that. For as long as I can remember, Jagex has claimed to keep extensive logs on how items make their way through the community, to track down gold buyers and sellers and mule accounts, yet they also claimed for a long time to be unable to help people who lose items due to bugs because they are unable to tell who is lying.
No. They can tell who is lying, it's just that so many people think it's cute to lie that it's incredibly labor-intensive to wade through every request.

 

 

Easy solution: Permaban people who are obviously lying, with no opportunity to appeal. Throw that warning into the header and you'll see the fake requests dry up fast.

 

A little over-the-top, but it'd work

 

 

Think of it as a deterrent. I'd rather see a few jackasses get banned than have Jagex summarily close the thread every time their mediocre bug testing causes people to lose items, complaining about the number of false claims.

The sad thing is that this code is barely a year and a half old, added after the crucible/duel arena GP dupes


You make it sound like running through a few level 87 monsters is hard which it really shouldn't be at your level.

whoops, wrong thread

 

carry on *sweat*

 

(the issue with even having a system like this is people would still not actually stop sending false claims since they'll be using accounts they don't care about in the chance that somebody will slip up)
