Whatever happened to the option to buy the past holiday items like grim hood,chicken etc with loyalty points . There was a player poll a few years ago that passed to implement this option but we never got it even though players wanted it here hopeing these old items will be reobtainable in someway..the best thing would probably to have it like old school were you get all the previous year events upon completion of the current event.

Jagex realized that 75% is a better threshold for passing a poll than 50%, because 75%+ is a clear majority, while 50-74% is still pretty controversial (bearing in mind that not every player votes, so the error margin is there). > )

No, it only works in OSRS, because it was set as the standard for holiday items in OSRS from the beginning. RS3 set a different standard for its holiday items, and so it's expected to adhere that.

Point is it still passed and they didn’t deliver or give an update on thier progress. Also say what u will but the items were never meant to be walking wallets but rather a fun little cosmetic to have during holidays and everyone should be able to obtain all these fun items.

They didnt "deliver" because of the bad feedback they got after the poll.

The guaranted content poll passed . And we didnt get the content the poll feefback was not enough to reverse the decision cause there were plenty of users that want this content even more so then those that want to be greedy ass holes and horde all thepast valueless untradeable fun cosmetics to themselves and not letting anyone have them this is why they should of never been discontinued in the first place doing so has taken all the fun out of these items . Personally if they got rid of every holiday item and restarted from scratch and realease them they way they should of which is after each ecent get previous years items and not make discounted then fine and then u can blame yourselves for that cause you just let it colelct dust in your bank why not let others enjoy the items? They were meant to be fun litte items during the events not some wealthy greedy monsters that these items have turbed prople into so will you all stop shooting down this idea be from me or rest of community because clearly as the poll showed people want the items to be rereleased and dont u dare give the age of account crap cause thats what the damn veteran capes are for.

Indeed, veteran capes are for showing account age, while untradeable discontinued items are for showing that you played during X period of time. Thus, their purposes are similar, but still distinctly different. > )

For example, owning a Christmas wand proves that you played during the Christmas event of 2011, while owning a 10/15-year veteran cape does not prove that you played during the same event, because the account age that is calculated for veteran capes is counting all the time, whether you play or not. So you could have e.g. created your account in 2007, quit in 2008, and come back in 2017 to claim the 10-year veteran cape, not having any playtime between the period during which you had quit.

I'd argue that this makes the untradeable discontinued items more unique, because owning many of them displays that you have actively played the game, while any veteran cape can be "earned" with next to no gameplay whatsoever.

I don't think anyone really cares about a certain untradeable holiday items that "show" you played during a certain time. I mean this game is just a game and before you know it we will all be dead one day. Your progress in this game means nothing.

You just dont want players to have any fun with the items as they were meant for ur like the rest of the greedy and wealthy playerswho doesnt want to share their toys the poll passed stop arguing it and let them rerelease the items this is the reason thus happened because of greedy and super rich players not wanting to give these unobtainable items to even give others a chance we arnt even speaking about the tradeables but rather the valueless untradeables theat are collecting dust in ur toy boxs/bank . The time has come to make the untradeables no longer discounted the way they were meant to be heck even rereaslimg the event with the exact same rewards works too. Or like old school get all the previous years untradeables this whole holiday item stuff should not be so controversial just give up and let them maje it no longer discounted which it should not have been in the first place cause well you see the diaster it has caused. Heck lets take away everysingle holiday item and restart with it not being that way of discontinueD stay on topic folks and discuss all the postives of rerealeasing holiday items as well as ur support for it.
