Question... Say there is a name you would like to grab, but can't, because the name is taken by an account that is clearly inactive throughout the years. Is there any way around that? I remember Jagex purged names of accounts that weren't used over the years. I can't offer in-game currency to the player since they don't log in. They clearly don't play as their stats have not increased in over a year.

There really isn't any way around that. There are reasons why a name cannot be taken:

• The name is being used by another player
• The name is still reserved to another player
• The name is offensive or deemed inappropriate
• The name has been removed from circulation by Jagex
• The name is associated with an account involved in serious rule breaking
• The name is already an exact match to your current character name (changing letter cases in the same name is possible)


There's potential that it can be released by a name clean-up, but it's unlikely if it was a name removed from circulation by Jagex, or in current use.

Are you certain the account is inactive though?
Did you check highscore for both RS3 and OSRS?

Just something to think about before you get hyped for the next name clean up, should one ever happen.

Sums it up quite well IMO.

Sure it sums things up quite well, but it does in no way answer the question asked.
