A bit of that.

But, tbh, I just like frustrating people who want to be nosey for the sake of being nosey.

I mean, what difference does it make what my stats are, or are not, when I am posting on the forums?

I could have a Completionist main but be posting on a forum alt - so knowing the stats of my forum posting account would be entirely irrelevant in gauging my knowledge or experience of the game.


Exactly.

If they cbb to ask, then its on them to get upset.

Its gets the community active again as they actually need to interact for once, yes i know that can be hard for some ppl, if they want to know something.

That's a weird way to create interaction, I don't see it being very successful seeing as you have to tell others they should ask you about your stats. Since their first reaction to seeing a private profile isn't to ask, afterall, its not too absurd to assume that the person with a private profile does not want to share their information.


Uhh considering ppl asked that very question pre examine, id beg to differ.

I mean i remember seeing ppl at yews all the time back in the day and asking their wcing lvl.

So how this is a hard concept to grasp is beyond me.

Plus i like how you also just assume things that you have no real knowledge of.

I thought we were talking about private runemetrics profile on forums?


Yes but you seem to like to take things out of context like always.

We were just talking about how this creates more interaction with others, so noice try.

So one way it does is by getting ppl actually asking about your lvls.

The topic of this thread is about runemetrics profile viewed via forums, read OP's post again and stop going off topic.


Weird, your the one who originally started all this:

Not saying its a big deal or anything, I was just asking because it kind of seemed pointless to hide something but then also be willing to divulge said hidden information.


Then commented after i did:

Both of the comments you quoted are talking about runemetrics profile being hidden. I don't understand what point you're trying to make.


Thats the thing, it doesnt seem you want to understand as you dont like ppl having free will or choice.

So lets move on to the next discussion plz.

And you're right, lets get back to OP's topic, which is why people set their runemetric profiles to private (coincidentally, its also what I've been trying to ask you in the last few replies,


I have mine set that way because i can, if you cant accept that then im sorry to hear that.

I mean, if you don't want to answer it, just say so, instead of going about it such a roundabout way. I don't mind if you don't want to answer, even if it'd be a little ironic, its just better than having a conversation going nowhere.


TFW i did answer it:

Draco Burnz said:

If theres an option to ill use it.

I mean they put it in for a reason.

Plus why does it matter so much?


Just because you dont like my answer doesnt mean i didnt.

So for one to be talking about irony, you show alot here as you keep telling me to answer an already answered question.

Read again buddy, I asked what was the point of doing it, as in what's the purpose. You only said you do it just because. If you really wanted to answer my question, you would've said there was no purpose other than "I feel like it


Now you get it.

Not everything will make sense to you as its not supposed to.

You play how you want to and ill do the same.

Just because you see no reason behind this doesnt mean it should happen.

Some people just wanna watch the world burn.

Other people just wanna piss people off by putting their settings to private.

A few others just don't wanna be creeped on.


Agreed.

If you want to know someones stats bad enough, use the one thing that cant be hidden.

Highscores.

Yes, after all the unnecessary round-a-bout conversation I finally understand that you had nothing to say at all.


Just like you have nothing either.

UrekMazino said:
So you're saying hiding profile is pointless since you can still access those information?


If it was jagex wouldnt have added it to begin with.

So just because you see no reason for it/dont like it doesnt mean ppl shouldnt be allowed to use it.

No, as hiding it might not affect the ability to check your skills, but it does hide what you've been up to lately and how active you are as a player for those that wish to creep


Exactly.

Love how ppl think skills are the only things ppl are hiding.

This post fit here perfectly:

Original message details are unavailable.


To protect themselves from being judged by other people. It's a perfectly valid use for it. There's people out there that just examine people for the sake of laughing at them and can go as far as actually insulting them directly. This obviously annoys people so rather than be bugged by people, they hide this information.

It doesn't just hide your stats, it hides your gear. People love checking what gear people are using and unfortunately love to make a mockery out of them if they're using gear they don't agree with. You can't exactly find out what gear they're wearing if their examine is set to private. People that don't want to be judged are thus protected.

As for levels, sure, you can just go up and look up their stats. But as you said, it's more convenient to do it via examine. By making it private, they inconvenience you and force you to go through the effort of actually going to the website, typing their name and finding that information manually. It can discourage people and does. People will likely just growl in frustration and move on to another player to examine, one that hasn't set theirs to private.

You can keep on dodging my question by completely misrepresenting them. I'm done here.


Nah you just cbb to accept that others play the game differently than you and want ppl to play the same.

You keep ignoring that jagex gave ppl this free will of doing this so you have no right to question it.

Dont like the reasoning tough shits, its mine so either accept it and move on or dont and move on.

But... Myself and others have already answered it and he used our responses as an answer...

So he did answer your question as to what's the point of setting it to private.


Yet he cbb to accept that jagex gave ppl that option and keeps demanding to know why i have it.

Im not here to always explain every little thing i do just because he cbb to accept that we just can.
