Since this ditch repoll seems like it's gonna fail miserably, I was wondering if anyone knew off the top of the their head how long the JGods usually take to repoll the ditch after every failure. It's bound to happen and since this likely failed out of sheer spite and the JGods acknowledged it (can be seen on MILGudi's Q&A recap on YouTube), I'd assume that the next repoll will be exclusive only to PKers. Does anyone have any information should this happen to fail? inb4spite voting revokes all of us non-PKers of our voting privileges

Now why on earth would they repoll it and only let pkers vote? I mean.. more than just pkers go to wildy, right? You know I'm right dude.. y'all want skillers and pvmers out there too so if you think shutting them out of the vote is going to get you what you want y'all would do good to have a quick re-think of that one..

If you want to tick of the majority of players who are NOT pkers.. yeah that'd be a great way to do it.. just don't come cryin' on forums when nobody but pkers shows up in the wildy any more..

Hmm.. that might very well be a great way to finish killing off pvp entirely.. go for it! =)

When has the community ever been deemed worthy of deciding integrity issues? It's usually just the nubnubs who are terrified of risk but want to receive the rewards of doing so. Furthermore, I'm not a PKer. I am just not a spite voter. Big difference. Also, no one quit over a Zulrah nerf, the introduction of statuettes, or any other integrity fix, so why would they ever quit over this? They'd just throw a hissy fit over the forums for a day or two and then eventually realize that it was needed for the game to move on.

Yeah not much anyway..

Original message details are unavailable.
Lmao I added this guy on all of my endless accounts. He better pray he never sees me in the wilderness.


And pj.. yeah you're easy to spot on all of your alts.. the ditch isn't an integrity issue.. else they'd not have polled it once (let alone the numerous times they've polled to remove it.. and it failed). They don't poll integrity issues and it's not an integrity issue just because something didn't pass that you wanted to pass.

Because they're under the false assumption that all PKers want the ditch removed, when in reality, the people voting no are voting no because:

1. It's failed FIVE TIMES NOW and Jagex needs to respect the outcome of the question and STOP REPOLLING IT.
2. It prevents luring, and Jagex has not demonstrated that their replacement will have the same effect that a physical barrier like the ditch does.
3. It was in there since the start of OSRS and people don't see the harm in it being there.
4. The reasons some people want it removed are ridiculous, such as "I don't like the way it looks," "it's not nostalgic," or "I hate having to left click it all the time."

The first is subjective, and removing the ditch isn't the same as making it look pretty; the second is relative, as someone very well could have nostalgic feelings for the ditch, and the third is pointless whinging that should be ignored. People have to left click doors to get into a building, so get the hell over it.

Exactly. They basically want to have exclusive rights to decision making regarding PvP changes, but the changes that are considered "PvP changes" affect non-PvPers just as much, if not more.

That already happens all the time. That's why there's a cry for a Wilderness Rejuvenation every few months. "Revenants are dead! Add 2m/hr more profit, please!"

You're either lying, or admitting that this isn't a partisan issue.

Either the divide in the polls has nothing to do with being a PKer or not, or you're lying. Which is it?
I'll keep score from now on.
