People here are somehow equating this to the ACTUAL Tip.it Times, but that's wrong... I even thought Bladewing was smart enough to know this, but evidence proves otherwise...

So let me start by saying that this article would not have been published as such, nor would it have been published for a while even if it WAS better written/cited/formulated but only due to the topic being covered in length and depth recently...

Misfortune shouldn't have put his article here as well as submit it as a Times article... This is just a forum post, but it could have been an article that had been scrutinized by the volunteers at the Editorial Panel... A missed opportunity if you ask me...

Exactly. We would have collaborated on it for a while before even thinking about publishing it as a guest article.

Misfortune, you put yourself in a hole by posting this in the Gen. Discussions. We obviously won't be able to do anything with this now that you posted it.

Also, when trying to use a lot of facts, or any facts for that matter, no sources=no credibility.



I have every source and picture of conversations which I am not allowed to post.

Do macro purchasers get their money back if their macro doesn't work and the developers have a hard time updating it? Surely they sign some liability agreement.


I read through the terms and what not and if they can not update there is no refund or any type of reimbursement given to the purchasers.

Did I ever say I didn't read it?

The reason I'm so vocal about it is because I feel like I wasted my time by READING it, because all it is is a few simple sums and the point that people use bots to make real life money.

Which took like eight paragraphs to write.

Still, making way more money than most jobs by starting a macro company is pretty shocking. Especially if it's $500,000. :blink:



After talking to another dev I found out more information(this was written 2 days after I joined). That specific bot is currently run by two people making $238,000 a year on average and increasing each month.


If you choose to believe people who's key business is deception and lying basically, then sure, that figure is 100% accurate.

It's not like they'd be grandstanding to make them look like a big shot :shock:


I 100% believe them as my estimations based on users and botting programs sold(publicized information) match this almost exactly.

Which isn't even a true number anyway, this does not take anything else into account other than revenue, it doesn't take into account the oppourtunity cost of the time it took to write the program, it doesn't take into account people who defect on their payments, it doesn't take into account any income tax at all, nor the potential losses if this person were to be sued or shut down, or hell, even dragged into jail for tax evasion.

It's just a simple sum designed to get some shock value, when it's REALLY not accurate.



Ah once again my research has countered this. The current bot was a source that started from previously shut down bots that took around 2 months to update and get in working condition. They new number I posted in my last post is including all taxes. Also according to the history of previous websites, Jagex gives them an opportunity to shut down BEFORE they take them to court and sue.

THEREFORE, my information is correct.
