No please, the f2p community is still a community. A treasured community, might I add. Also, f2p players are still engaging with the game - an act of support.

The forum population has declined over the years. Let's not reduce those numbers any further.

Also, there are some forum users who have remained active within the forums over many years and are f2p players. It'll be so disheartening to see dedicated players being cut from a community that they're a part of.

I'm sorry to say, but an idea like this is more likely to do damage to the community, rather than good.

Do you guys think that most f2p forum users are:

A) F2P only players,
B) P2P players using a F2P alt (perhaps they aren't brave enough to post on their main, or maybe their main was forum banned for hate speech, for example), or
C) Players that do not play anymore?

What do you estimate the proportion of each group is?


Only Jagex has purview to those statistics, so any other calls for speculation is biased.

Even so, it shouldn't matter. We can't deny that we have dedicated f2p forum users on RSOF. Ignoring their dedication, activity, contribution, and excluding them from the forums, demonstrates poor character.

Nice side step! Of course it matters. If we just have a bunch of banned mains posting on throwaway accounts that's an issue. If the f2p accounts don't even play the game, then why do we want them spamming the forum with nonsense?


Are all f2p accounts spamming the forums? No, a number of them are actually contributing to these forums and have been so for ages.

Side step? I wanted to highlight that a dedicated f2p community outweighs those statistics. There will always be trolls, but we shouldn't be disadvantaging anyone in our strategies to curb the trolls.
