Saying they only achieved something due to the spam is in no way, shape or form the same as saying the votes should be discounted. It is just an observation of causality, just because people note that Jagex pulled a big PR stunt that caused the vote to do more does not mean they are discrediting the votes it garnered.

The point is, you've said advertising only happened because voting slowed down. I say they advertised because they wanted to reach the members who don't follow the front page actively as well (regardless of the vote count at the time). Apparently there were a lot of them.


Yes, they wanted to reach the members who don't follow the front page because the vote was flatlining.

Edit: Doing this serves Jagex's best interests (making money) and has precedent with the wilderness vote and possibly others. The real question is why wouldn't they do this?

From the empty days of hope, deny the darkness
Follow my voice, we'll run far away from here

If only to hide, to escape this life
And live forever, forever in the sun

This. I know a TON of people that don't pay attention to the main page of RS ever. Nevermind FB or twitter.

I quit checking the main page after they updated it and made it awkward as hell. I trust TIF to share all the updates worthy of mentioning/discussing :D

Playing RS2007 has angered me to today's RuneScape. Not because of the content, not because of Evolution of Combat or any other implemented features.

It's because of the tick. In OldScape I can move stuff in my bank and inventory incredibly quickly and with no pause. In the regular RuneScape you can't do this. If you move stuff too fast it'll either snap back into place or it won't be picked up at all. It's crap.

Bonesaw Bamf just got the first fire cape in RS07, livestreaming as well. It was pretty damn intense lol. He downed Jad on his very last prayer point (flashing of course). Was pretty amazing to watch.

I agree with some of the others that said, it's just not going to be the same. My friends from 06 and 07 won't be there, and I've moved on. So have they. While it would be cool to run around for 20 mins and maybe PK once, the fact that they're not opening this to f2pers (which does cut down on bots) in my mind means the idea won't go very far. In 6-12 months it probably won't be much more active than RSC.

If they're trying to bring the old players back - obviously not members anymore - I don't get why they would make it p2p... Also, I'm pretty sure more players pked in f2p, so making only p2p servers available (! assumption) just... doesn't make sense. It's flawed but then it's flawed on top of that. .. Just my 2 cents

Agreed. Though I 100% believe that they will release it to free to players sooner or later.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be?~ Marianne Williamson

Is that image from Reddit? Because I looked up Mod Mike's profile on Reddit and he never said that.

"I smell a lotta "if" comin' off this plan." :P

I think it's a bad idea to implement free access this soon. They need to give 07Scape a chance to establish itself, to build an internal community and economy and then, maybe, open up access for free. Maybe only do it a couple times a year for a couple of weeks to get interest built up and pull in new subscribers. Full free access this early is a bad idea.

THE place for all free players to connect, hang out and talk about how awesome it is to be F2P.

So, Kaida is the real version of every fictional science-badass? That explains a lot, actually...

I can't find that comment anywhere on his profile. I think that image might either be fake or possibly deleted because it contained incorrect information - which if it did I wouldn't lay it at his feet.

E: unless it was on a private subreddit? But I don't think any other private subreddits use that specific flair.
