There is no such thing as a one-year ban. Temporary macroing bans last 2 days in most cases and have an expiration date of one year. Meaning: it sounds like you can log in again in about 2 days and in 1 year, the ban meter will go down.
Member of the godless. It's not that I don't want to devote my soul to an RS god, the problem is that I can't find it.
You can join Friend Chat groups dedicated to certain skills, and it makes it so much faster and easier to get to 99. I would also suggest using portable skilling stations, as there are usually specific worlds that have certain portables active 24/7.
Just level the skills yourself, it is very rewarding when you earn those skillcapes.
Yeah, there is no such thing a a one year ban. You were probably temp banned for 48 hours, and assumed it was a year. So in retrospect you could've already been playing for 362 days, but hopefully you at least learned your lesson either way.
