Seems unfair to have just a few of the items trad-able.
Unfair advantage? I think so!
State if you have any holiday items, and if you would sell them.

PARTIAL EDIT FROM PG. 28 about why I personally think it's unfair and bad taste from JAGEX to have some items unattainable.

In 2003, before RS2, Andrew Gower said after the dupes do not partake in them.
This made an over whelming of phats, Santas, Etc...
K, Then he stated that we are not going to have holiday items trade-able because
this wasn't our intention to make them cost so much and meant to be fun item, and meant to be traded among friends etc...Then they brought back the trade-able Black Santa!

If you are against this idea, please state why you don't want these items on the trading block?

If you think that's unfair, then it goes both ways; tradeable ones don't have account-specific historical value in the item, while untradeable ones can't be sold for money. Both have their pro(s) and con(s), and IMO they're pretty balanced atm, so there's no need to change it. > )

They're untradeable for a reason. The accounts that hold these holiday items shows the age of the account. Making them more unique than others
Since Blackwing and Draco cannot. Care to show me where in any holiday event they claim the items to be used for showing account age?

You should also explain how keeping them like this, so the few Santa Suit owners can stay exclusive, is healthier for the game AS WELL AS satisfying to the players, giving new players reasons to stay?

If you cannot explain, then don't even try to use it as an argument.
Your opinions here can affect us all. Please post for the better

Why does it need to be explained?

I mean you've been told countless times yet refuse to listen to reason.

So want an explanation, go look at every other thread about holiday items. Including you own.

Oh no I am unable to obtain some useless cosmetic because I wasn't playing back when it was released. Time to quit.
