There's a massive great button when you login game now which says "vote". Does anyone know what happens if you click it? Does it automatically count as 'yes' or do you get a chance to confirm it? Looking at the massive spike in votes I'm assuming it automatically counts you as a yes. If it is that's piss poor consultation.

100 people willing to do the work for a couple months and then pking is better than the barren that is the current wilderness currently IMO. But once again that's how I feel. You have to understand for many of us it's this or nothing... If 07rs is a huge flop then it flops and I go back to my everyday life without rs

 

Well. You see. Why is it now, all of the sudden a big deal. What about everyday life, everyday since Jan 1 08?

 

If you had a chance to rebuild a game you loved with the mechanics and gameplay that has a fan base would you not be passionate about it as well?

 

Not really. I'd prefer to stay with the progression I've made rather than revert back to the person I was. Evolution etc etc

Returning to an old hobby and progressing in real life aren't mutually exclusive. To even imply that it is, is ludicrous

There will certainly be a short-lived resurgence in voting via the lobby banner catching those who never read the news, forums etc..but yeah it already seems short-lived the 5min scraps had a brief 60 blip and already halved down to 30 again

Thankfully it only takes you to the vote page, it doesn't register a vote :)

Refreshing misplaced's data scrape is fun to see the blip progress. 5min scraps vote per min already gone from 60-ish to 25ish again, so back to the fairly stable 10ish rate soon.

You'll note that isn't even remotely close to what I said. I gave you MY stance.

Votes per minute are still up there! And were still 6 hours away from peak time! This definitely throws off most projections.

Yeah cause peak-time paid off so well the first time round where votes just kept going down...

 

And realistically all told this is still quite a small blip so doesn't make much difference to the projections people made mathematically, maybe bumps results up by 5k or so total, still interesting to see how it's wavering around though.

Votes are coming in much faster. 250k+ seems much more realistic now...

This will most likely fall on deaf ears, but for everyone voting against 07scape (simply by not voting) it makes no sense for you not to vote to bring it back. The way I see it, a true post-EOC runscape player would WANT the vote to reach between the 250k-500k range because that would cause people playing 07scape to pay and if anything, help out the post-EOC game. In the short term it may take away some of the Jagex team to set up the servers, but once that is done there would be nothing more to do any they would go back to the current game and nothing would change. I just don't see how people can have "negative" opinions toward this.

Wow. Jagex is really helping out in pushing this and making sure everyone sees the poll.

 

The poll and it's numbers are now displayed right on the first page and they update right in front of your eyes.

If you didn't see any argument like that, then you either didn't read the thread or you need some glasses, almost very bloody page there's someone spewing that argument and it just get's tiring specially since every time somone suggests it, more than one person shuts it down only to come back.

Indeed as has been said a million times before:

 

The vote is to gauge number interested in playing and thus financial viability and price level needed

Votes with non intention to play artificially inflate this figure.

If its artificially inflated pricing may end up cheaper, but this won't necessarily be good as there will be far less players than the price was designed to work for.

 

Also stop trying to guilt people into voting who do not wish to, it's kinda lame and childish. I mean not once have any of us who not voted tried to guilt you people into not voting; we've simply said we aren't voting and why.

I believe it would be more misguided and selfish to cause Jagex to allocate time and resources into something you will never play. That's why I won't vote, since every vote counts (or should count) as a person interested in playing.

 

If 250k people want to play and only that many, so be it, but inflating the numbers just for those 250k people to get what they want is misguiding Jagex. Hell, that's just going on the assumption that all of those people who have already voted will actually play, and that none are just zealots who begged their friends or made alternate member accounts to vote with, or abused the refer a friend system.

Runescape has like 300k members tops

 

I would say 500k.

A few days ago you were saying we would easily hit 750k votes. Now you are saying we don't even have that many members. Please, stop posting.

Clicking the link on the hope page forces your vote, doesn't lead you to the information page. You know I thought they would rig it but this is stupid.

You mean the 'vote yes now' button?

Kinda obvious it's gonna cast a vote, but I'd agree a bit underhand to force the vote.

 

Some how I get the feeling Jagex over-estimated the vocal minority and are now trying to push it as they know the 50k bracket isn't going to work as people won't pay.
