Here is how we could attempt to lower/prevent spite voting and alt voting.

I know tons of people have made threads about something like this, but here is my perspective and i hope you, and Jagex, like it.

1. Poll Requirements:


there should be requirements to vote.

500 skill total
7 Quest Points
at least 2 in every skill (unless you are a lvl 3, then at least 2 in every non-combat skill, that way it lets people with a skiller main vote but not a 1 defence pure alt.)
50 hours playtime total
10 hours playtime past year
30 minutes play time past month
Having read the newspost (Multiple ways to do this:
1. require you put in a specific number, and that number can be found on the newspost
2. put poll questions in the newspost itself, with different questions being in the same area as where it is described)

Most people who have made threads like this say you should have very high levels, quest points, etc. but i do not agree because:

1. Higher levels tend to have different opinions than the true majority.
2. Unfair to those without high levels as they do not have a voice.
3. Puts 1 group over the other in some ways.

2. Electioneering

another problem is people's votes swayed by other people.

we could slightly lower this by doing the thing done in the real world:

Ban electioneering near the polls.

how we could do this is not show chat with the words "vote", "poll", or words that wold only make sense if you were talking about the ongoing poll, but only in some areas. places this censorship could be placed:

1. Grand Exchange
2. All Buildings with a poll booth
3. Public Chat (this doesn't have to be one of them)
4. Not allow them to be showed on the chat of anybody in a building with a poll booth.
VOTE
YES

Let us lower Combat
try looking at my old school runescape suggestions wikia! just search for it on fandom and you should find it.

3. New In-Game Rules

This one has plenty to do with 2. Electioneering. basically, add 2 offences to the game that do not apply to the forums or RS3. those offences would be:

1. Electioneering
2. Multiple account voting

And punishment for both could be as follows, with offence count applying to both and resetting each poll:

First offence: Warning
Second offence: Warning
Third Offence: Mute for the duration of poll (Mute does not apply to Forums or RS3)

4. F2P

Maybe allow F2P to vote on at least some polls. mainly just because voting is a right not a privilege. this one is kinda just another thought, i don't mind if you disagree with this one.

What i'm not saying is that:

only a small group should get to vote.



What i am saying is:

a few requirements that would be easy for people who are not fresh off tutorial island, or alts, but are a main.

Id say the requirements should be something like this:

- 1500 total
- 100 combat
- 200 quest points
- At least one combat 99 and one non combat 99
- Fire cape
- 100 unique kills in pvp (not killing the same person over and over)
- At least one elite diary done
- 1 Raid completed in CoX
- Account age at least 2 years

Sure a lot fewer people will be able to vote, but this will make sure the people who do vote, have played most parts of the game. None of the requierments above are too hard in my opinion, it just makes sure people who vote play the game and will limit voting on alts to a large extent.

To all the people who complain that this will make new players unable to vote. Yes it makes sense scinse they usually know very little about the game. Same reason children cant vote irl.
Dont make easily botted activities such as skilling profitable

how would you know the difference between someone voting on 10 accounts and someone with 10 family members playing on the same computer?

Some people use anonymous email sites that prevent jagex from knowing where or who they are. Some people do this for nefarious reasons, while others do it for security.

Stop being a entitled snowflake. If you want something in game, earn it rather than demand it be given to you.

No troll lol. Most people who play this game a lot have all that on their main. Possibly not the 100 pvp kills but that is not hard to get. Dont make easily botted activities such as skilling profitable
