About the Owner of the Friend's Chat: New Years is a respected and seasoned member of the discontinued items business community here on Runescape. He is also a captain in R quark and stands apart from the others in his service and attitude.

About the Former Owner of The Friend's Chat: The Motherland joined the Runescape community in 2002. Among the first generation of players to witness the game in its developing stages, The Motherland has been an active leader of the Runescape business community for over a decade in the area of value investing and investment advisory services. In addition to his for-profit activities, The Motherland is engaged in pro bono work and has been an outspoken activist for reform on price reporting and measures taken against enterprise corruption and RWTing. In January 2013, The Motherland founded ‘SOF Rares Pc’ – the first Friend’s Chat committed to the accurate reporting of prices of popular discontinued items that were released through the Squeal of Fortune (SOF), which was later to become Treasure Hunter (TH), and other Jagex promotion events. After a brief hiatus from ‘SOF Rares Pc’, The Motherland is proud to announce 'th rares pc' as The Friend's Chat channel for SOF/TH discontinued item price checking. New Years and the Motherland are the current Co-owners of Th Rares Enterprises in Item Discussion.
If you are willing to chuck your most precious possessions like phats because someone said words like crashing/dying/quitting and then find yourself unable to rebuy for what you sold for, then you don't deserve to own a phat.

Methodology: All prices are based on reports given by players in Friend’s Chat channel or on SOF/TH Disc. Item Status V5. Reports are accepted as valid by default unless contradicted. Every effort is made to ensure accuracy. For details, see SOF/TH Disc. Item Status V3.
Ranks: Ranks in the ‘Th rares pc' is awarded to those who have shown true dedication and commitment to the mission of the organization. Regular duties and responsibilities involve 1) offering price reports; 2) providing accurate and timely reporting; 3) maintaining decency and order within the ‘Th rares pc’ Friend’s Chat channel; 4) investigating fraud and abuse; 5) promotion services.

Performance-based Pay: Ranks are eligible for free Runescape membership via Bonds for exemplary service.

Code of Honor and Ethics: Participants, both nonranks and ranks, are expected to maintain a basic level of honor and ethics within the Runescape community. Foremost among these qualities is the human right to free speech (so long as it does not cause immediate harm or disturb the public order). There is a zero-tolerance policy on the persecution of players for their views displayed outside the Friend’s Chat channel and its affiliated Forum threads.
If you are willing to chuck your most precious possessions like phats because someone said words like crashing/dying/quitting and then find yourself unable to rebuy for what you sold for, then you don't deserve to own a phat.

Constitutional Rights:

A 'player' is anyone who plays RS. A 'visitor' is anyone who plays RS and visits the FC. 'Due process' requires that accused be given the opportunity to know their accuser and present evidence in their defense.
1 Every Player is entitled to free speech to the extent allowed by Jagex and to the extent that it does not interfere with price reporting operations.

2 Players shall not be removed from the FC or banned from the FC without due process. One exception is made to the situation where the alleged transgressor presents a clear and immediate danger to others (e.g. spamming).

3 Visitors are not subject to retaliation by the FC for their personal perspectives.

4 No legitimate trade reports shall be ignored in price reporting (no matter what the ranks of the FC believe where prices are headed.)
5 Right to remain silent
6 Right to face one's accuser
7 Right to a speedy resolution (i.e. no action or discussion is taken within 72hrs); otherwise, the statute of limitations invalidates the complaint.
If you are willing to chuck your most precious possessions like phats because someone said words like crashing/dying/quitting and then find yourself unable to rebuy for what you sold for, then you don't deserve to own a phat.

Restatement of FC rules summarized from the past 10 pages:

1 All runescape rules.
2 No spamming / trolling, this will result in a warning before a kick is warranted.
3 Offensive language will not be tolerated in the FC.
4 Do not give false prices (manip).
5 Offtopic is allowed, as long as it does not interfere with PC requests and updates.
6 Trending is not allowed.
7 Players with an offensive name should change their names before entering the FC.
8 All updates are assumed to have taken place in the last 5 minutes unless stated.
9 Wrongful kicks are subject to a fine equivalent to a fish mask payable to the Kick Victims Fund, which distributes compensation to those players who have been wrongfully kicked.
10 Ranks may not be permanently demoted without due process. However, pending an investigation, ranks may be demoted temporarily.
11 Trading (without quantity or price) of TH rares is allowed in FC.
12 No promotion will be made on the basis of anything except approximate pcing hours.
13 Do not ask for PCs repeatedly within the course of several minutes, especially if you have already received a PC recently. (Application of this rule is subject to rank discretion.)
14 Kick appeals must be sent within 72hours of the incident to a rank different from the rank who is involved in the incident.
15 If in doubt with any of the details (e.g. timestamp), do not use the report to update the PC. Call it the "no guessing" rule (Executive Order 522030).
If you are willing to chuck your most precious possessions like phats because someone said words like crashing/dying/quitting and then find yourself unable to rebuy for what you sold for, then you don't deserve to own a phat.

16 Reports of average price sold/bought for multiple items are NOT accepted because the report does not reveal the exact price of which the item was sold for. At best, some price bounds can be inferred but that's it.
Actions that, without actual evidence, directly promote the claims made by individuals who have been documented for price manipulation may be construed as aiding and abetting known price manipulators. Being an accessory to price manipulation is tantamount to price manipulation itself (Executive Order 522031).

For example, it's perfectly fine to confirm a report (e.g. I sold gem cape for 243m 20 minutes ago) made by a player who is known for price manipulation. However, it's not acceptable to advertise as the truth uncorroborated claims made by a player who is known for price manipulation.
17 During times of extreme volatility (e.g. a price jump or fall above 20%) and no available conflicts, ranks reserve the right to ask for screenshots as part of an effort to ascertain validity. Failure to show sufficient evidence may result in the report being classified as "incomplete" (Executive Order 234345).
18 In an effort to promote team spirit and cooperation, it is expected that ranked members of the FC act as a unit (or a team). In the case of potentially inflammatory rank vs. rank. disputes, every effort should be made to resolve the dispute privately. A public discussion of the dispute should be reserved as a last resort if all else fails. In no circumstance is it allowed for a ranked member to treat another disrespectfully by undermining his or her authority in public (Executive Order 853346).
If you are willing to chuck your most precious possessions like phats because someone said words like crashing/dying/quitting and then find yourself unable to rebuy for what you sold for, then you don't deserve to own a phat.
