I wasn’t sure which section to post this question in, but can anyone or any mods give any feedback on when Jagex will be releasing inactive and banned account names again? Myself and I know many others have been very curious about this. Trying to make new accounts and just about every single name being taken right now is just hectic.
It is a bit annoying. Mainly just because there are so many name squatters... On the occasions that I have looked into changing names, almost every name I am interested in is taken. And they aren't common names, as I look them up on the high scores first and the names aren't listed there.
The high scores include people down to 38 levels... So these names are being held by accounts that aren't actually being used (legitimately anyway), and I'd guess it's just millions of names that just sit there for years, unusable by the people who actually play the game.
Maybe it should be "non-member who hasn't logged in for a year or more? Name removed." Maybe that's too severe... I'm not really suggesting it, it's just annoying is all.
I have just tried to log into my Runescape account, it should have the username "Bloatedpig" but for some reason it has "RitualMurda" I have mainly played OSRS on Bloatedpig, i also have emails from Jagex regarding billing for membership that I have paid for.
I have tried to put in an appeal but the bot has rejected it straight away. Can the Mods/Admins please help me sort this issue out as nothing in the support section seems to cover this. I am happy to provide email proof of the billing payments confirmed by Jagex.
