FC Capacity
- People in the lobby will be kicked to free space when the FC is nearly full (90+).

Hosts
- Anyone may host. Hosts are players who share their portables with and help the community.

Callers
- Anyone may help out and call locations, including ranks. Help others like yourself find their location. Players may also post on this thread with updated locations if they wish.

Ranks
- Ranks are simply volunteers who are helpful and trusted in the FC. Do not expect them to actively call locations constantly during their presence as they are under no obligation, and may only be monitoring the chat and/or occupied with in-game activities, as any player.

Donations
- Any donations should be given to the hosts. Hosts must not ask for donations in the FC. You may donate/help out by adding more portables to their portable, extending the duration.

Trolls
- Handling trolls can be done by hosting at a citadel (with cc ban list access), letting a rank know, changing worlds/locations or simply ignoring them.


Neither helpers (hosts/callers) nor ranks receive anything in return for helping, so make sure to thank them. :)

1.1 - How the FC works



Anyone may call or host portables.



Looking for a portable
:

- Ask kindly in the FC if there are any active locations of the portable you need. If there aren't any, either start one up and host yourself, wait around patiently or come back later. Please remember to thank the caller and hosts.

If muted, ask through Quick Chat: "Where can I get item: Portable (...)?"

F2P: Crafters, Braziers, Ranges and Fletchers are F2P. F2P hosts are very rare in the FC, therefore do not expect active F2P locations all of the time. We recommend checking these locations as F2P players usually tend to host there: 3, 11, 17 & 29 at CA, BU or the GE.


Hosting a portable
:

- State in the FC which portable(s), world, location and possibly the length of time you’re going to be hosting for. Please note that we only call popular portable locations listed below on post 1.4.


NOTE: Please wait around 5 minutes before calling a location dead. The host may be AFK/restocking or someone else may take over hosting especially if the location is crowded.



Calling a portable
:

- Gather from the FC any announced locations by hosts or players and note them for calling when requested. You may verify the location by checking it, if necessary. Please make sure, if possible (as it can be difficult to determine), that the host has agreed to share their location when announced by a player.


Abbreviations
:

For abbreviations and detailed information on portables and locations, please refer to posts 1.3 and 1.4 below.

Any stated number stands for the world.

Example:

R99ca
= Ranges, world 99, Combat Academy.

1.2 - Rules


Read the rules before using the FC. Only one warning will be given - spammers and flamers may be kicked on sight.

All Jagex rules apply


No spam
- Any type of spam is not allowed.

No trading
- Any sort of trading is not allowed.

No flaming or complaints
- Be polite and respectful. Rude, disruptive and offensive behaviour will not be tolerated. Complaints should always be taken to ranks through PM, and not in the FC.

Off-topic allowed
- as long as it's not offensive, argumentative or spamming the chat (if someone asks for a location, stop and then resume).

English only
- If you must explain something to someone who does not speak English, please do it in PM.

No asking for donations
- Do not ask for or encourage players to donate in the FC. Feel free to ask in public, but do not spam, beg or demand for them. If someone asks if they can donate in the FC, please refer them to the hosts.

No lobbying
- Players in the lobby will be removed by ranks when the FC is nearly full (90+) to free space in the FC.

No host trolling
- Please follow simple and common hosting etiquette. Do not troll, lack respect and convenience, host and be a nuisance about it or not follow the rules in general. Do not place portables away from the bank especially with the intent of trolling and griefing, by making players constantly walk back and forth between them and the bank. It is a huge inconvenience, overall inefficient and also generates lag. We only call and allow locations where portables can be placed next to the bank, and they are expected to be placed accordingly and appropriately. Otherwise, your location will not be called and you will potentially be removed/banned from the chat.

No clan recruiting
- Asking players to join your clan or looking for clans in the FC is not permitted.

No advertising
- Do not ask players to buy something for you off the G.E, request assist, lend items, team up or anything that would require them to meet you somewhere, nor should you advertise anything unrelated to portables on or off the RuneScape website. This FC's only purpose is to share portable locations.

No left-click placers near portables
- Placers such as clan vexes, banners, markers and other deployable left-click items that may block and interfere with the portables or the bank should be placed away.

No OSRS, BETA or Ironman players
- These players cannot use portables. They will not be allowed to stay.

No more than 3 portables per location may be called
- If you are a host, please do not host more than 3 portables at once at the same location, as good as your intentions may be. Calling too many portables at the same place overcrowds the location, causing players to lag and is very inefficient overall, especially for placement. If the host still wishes to do so, they are free to, but only 3 of their portables will be called. Multiple hosts are fine, but a maximum of 3 only per location will be called. Callers will use their best judgement and call the 3 most convenient ones, which takes into account factors such as priority, availability, placement and stability. This does not apply during DXP.

Do not ask for pulse cores
- We track and call portable locations, not pulse cores. Asking for them is disruptive for that reason in addition to the fact that they are too random and no one can really give you an answer. If someone happens to mention that they are being used at their location, that is fine, but do not ask for them and expect or demand an answer.

Burthorpe - (BU)

Clan Citadel - (CC)
: Enter as a guest by joining the portal at the Clan Camp south of Falador.


F2P: Due to the rarity of F2P locations, they may be hosted and called anywhere (such as the GE) and not only as per the locations listed above.



Location restrictions


These locations will not be tracked or included in official calls by ranks, but may be mentioned and referred to by players when necessary, especially if there are no other known locations.

They are very inefficient to use or host at, and are too public for us to effectively control, moderate and enforce our rules.

As a host, it is highly recommended to host in any other world if you like the location, or in any other location if you like the world.

2 BU
- Random players drop random portables improperly and inconsistently, in addition to and among divine locations. It is a popular location for players to hang out, advertise, recruit for clans and other activities, resulting in overcrowding and lag. Anywhere else in world 2 under 'Locations' is fine.

84 CA
- As a Portable Skilling world, it is a very popular and known location for portables. As a result, it is a very overcrowded location with a high amount of server and frame lag, and usually subject and prone to consistent trolling. Anywhere else in world 84 under 'Locations' is fine.

Forbidden worlds


These worlds are not allowed to be called by players.

Foreign worlds
- Not found on the normal (English) world list and require relaunching the client and playing the game in a different language.
