so i had 2 accounts of mine banned for no reason for "macroing" which i have never even downloaded a bot on my pc and never will im guessing because they had similar names and were on the same world at the time making cannonball. im just wondering if anyone else has had this issue because there is no way i could have been macroing if i dont even have a bot installed so what could be another reason i was banned for macroing. i even appealed it and they said nothing was wrong with their system but ive never even used a bot before so how could it be it just doesnt make sense at all makes me really second guess even playing this game at all if they just randomly ban people for no reason why even invest my time into it if they can just say one day oh your character was moving suspiciously and boom my accounts gone?

Sorry to hear you lost your access to the accounts but it seems that they believe you were doing something wrong. I'm not sure what the point of using a bot is - you're actually not playing the game for playing the game. If you did appeal the offense and they denied it someone looked into it. They found the ban to be legit and upheld the offense then. Move on, create a new account, and just really enjoy playing the game by putting effort yourself into the account.

where does your blind faith in jagex come from? how do you know that people personally look into any ban at all?
use dissenter periodcom to bypass censorship.

Hiya, Blazeblackx :)

If you've appealed, and you've been denied there's not much you can do.

I assume it's a perm-ban you've recieved? The thing with perm-bans is that Jmods always double-check them to see if they made the right call, and they for example go through and see if the account has been a victim of hijacking when the offence took place, etc. If they find proof of hijacking, they will remove the ban. If not, they will conclude that they made the right call.

You can read in more detail about bans here: Account Bans and Banned Account [Info]

I also had two alternate accounts with very similar names. I had not macroed at all and one was permanently banned just now for macroing because their "3rd party detection software" thinks I'm that good at playing Runescape, I guess. The most frustrating part is that there isn't even an option to contact Runescape/Jagex about permanent bans or anywhere to even claim that you weren't macroing. I had just spent the last five days questing and doing tasks like crazy, which I didn't even think software was capable of doing, but maybe I am wrong, and now that account is gone forever. I hope there is somewhere where I can get the word out to people that all their hard work might just be tossed by the aforementioned "software" and that they shouldn't waste any of their precious time here on earth playing Runescape. Such a bummer, I have been a loyal player and loved these little pixels since 2003/2004. It's Rune, but it's a Beard.

If they truly double check they are just guessing because my alternate account that just got banned had never macroed, and had never been hijacked, bought, or sold. If a J-Mod really just reviewed that, they are cold-hearted and just threw many days worth of work the drain. It's Rune, but it's a Beard.

I've been here from the early days. They do look into them.
