I was at my friends house years ago and and saw my account log on, so we sent messages to whoever was on my account about telling them to get off and that they had hacked me.

I checked my blackmarks the other day and noticed that I was actually muted for this, for apparently account sharing...

Even though the chatlog that they send you as evidence just said things like 'get off my friends account you hacker'

Got muted extremely early this morning (EST time). This guy and his friend who did not speak nor understand English crashed me at Bandos. I asked nicely for them to hop as there are many free worlds. One of the two people simply responded "que?" over and over when I said something and the other person never spoke. After about 5 minutes, I get fed up and basically told the guy to "SMD" but the full version and not the chat speak abbreviation. Fifteen minutes later, I try to type and I am muted. The other person had to have been a player moderator.


That doesn't sound like I should be muted for - given it's censored. I have the chat filter on purely to see what's filtered out.
Based on the info you're giving here - that shouldn't have been a mute. Then again, I can only go by what your version of the story is.

As for the rest of your rant: It's pretty much all pmods can actually do these days. And we do alot of it. Heck - I've had my muting powers locked due to muting too many in too little time - Jagex decided it'd be required to check my account safety.

I was unfairly banned fro macroing 2 days ago. So yes it does happen.

They said, "The Ban was made as our systems had detected use of an illegal bit of software active on your account. This can be in the form of botting or using automatedscripts that play the game for you, without requiring you to be at the keyboard to play" Problem is I have no idea what they're talking about ! i've never cheated or used any type of program to cheat on RS! I'm a 41 year old woman whose kids got her into playing many years ago, and I enjoy playing it to pass my time. Why would I cheat? This makes no sense to me at all. Meanwhile i'm banned for 14 days for something I didn't do, have no idea how to prevent it from happening again, and am out for all the new events! I am so mad that I paid until Feb. 2014! I want my money back! :oops:

Hate seeing that offense on my account from 2009 when I left my computer for a minute, came back and my brother was sitting on my computer cussing at people. Would have 8 years clean if not for that...

Runescape employees are incompetent, rude and condescending. Don't ever pay ahead for a membership EVER. They will rip you off and give you the run around even if you've been playing peacefully for years. They lie and insist they are right and you have no repercussions with them at all. Worst customer service EVER! Buyer beware.

Hey Tipit,

I was banned  about 4 months ago and I took immediate action, appealing and E-mailing Runescape but then I found out that they wouldn't go over any bans anymore. I panicked for about a month but then I tried to forget about it.
My account had about my whole childhood, consisting of 380 days playtime. I always had fun playing runescape, wasn't out for money, wasn't out for big skills. Have never achieved something like a 99 or a 100m cash stack. But I tried to get all collectibles from events and all that good stuff.

I must say that I had tried some bots 3-4 years ago, and I'm really sorry I did that. Didn't made my game any better though, and now I'm paying a price, it seems :(
But I think that I can at least get a second chance, right? I'm older now... I really don't wanna start a new account, This one has all my hard worked for noob stuff, and some fun event items.

People told me to get on Twitter and tweet any of the staff members to see if they would at least read the appeals I've made and consider giving me a second chance, but I'm not sure how to do that.

Does anybody have tips for me? I'd like to hear your stories too :)

No offense, but it sounds like you botted, you got caught, and you were banned.

I would certainly consider starting over, but play by the rules this time!  You're not going to get banned as long as you can resist the temptation to go cheat.

If you want to try tweeting staff members they may well decide to unban you and give you a second chance depending on the severity of the offense and the time it has been.  There is a thread on the Forums where you can find out the Twitter usernames of various JMods who use the social media site and attempt to tweet them, but you are better off finding/asking a friend who has contact with a JMod and asking them to message on your behalf.

 

Edit: Here's that thread - QFC: 254-255-350-65440273.

Unfortunately, you don't have a chance of getting your account back. From Jagex's permanent ban FAQ:

 


The duration of a ban is dependent on the severity of the offence. If an account has been permanently banned, it is because we feel that this is the correct punishment. We appreciate the account owner may not agree, but our decision is final.

All players who have been banned for macro use receive a second chance as we allow them to create a new account and start afresh. As long as they resist the temptation to use a macro program, they have no reason to fear their account being banned for macro use.

 

Basically, they permanently banned you because they thought that you deserved to be banned forever. All you can do is make a new account.

Thanks for your replies!

I'm certainly going to try Tweeting one of the mods, regardless of their thoughts of permanently banned accounts.

The injustice, in my eyes, is where I get permanently banned for the maybe 100k-ish xp I had botted of 3-4 years ago, while I know others that get away with a second chance, even though they botted themselves some 99's. NO ROLLBACKS!

So you openly admit you botted?

 

Yeah they aren't going to give you that account back.

They are very black and white on botting, plus I highly doubt it was 3-4 years ago it'd be something they detected recently with their bot detection systems.

Are you sure that's the hard and fast truth and not just the PR response...?

If you truly only botted 100k xp over 3 years ago then there has to be a way to get it back, since many worse offenders have just gotten bank wipes and rollbacks. Though if you did more and are lying, dont expect anyone at JaGeX to help you out. I dont quite see how you can get banned 3 times for something that small still..
