I have an idea that will make it very difficult for bots (such as miners and woodcutters) to thrive.

Make it a requirement to have 40 attack to use a rune pickaxe or axe for mining or woodcutting for non-members (or for everyone). This way bots will first have to achieve 40 attack to start botting. However this long period of time makes it very punishing once they get banned.

While this may initially be unpopular with players, overall it should severely reduce the amount of botters in the game. Also any player who actually plays their account should have no problem reaching 40 attack at some point, so it will mostly target the botters.

Also any bots that do not have 40 attack will be stuck using adamant or lower depending on how the rule is implemented. This means that they will immediately have a disadvantage against players with the appropriate attack level who can use rune.

Please consider this suggestion.

make it so you have to file a 2007 or prior tax return in order to log in

if no attempt is made within 30 seconds you're a human, if anything gets sent you're a robot and banned

This. If you wanna screw over bots, heavily tax or even better yet remove the GE altogether.

That wouldn't work, either, and also harms legitimate players.
I'll keep score from now on.

There will never be a real non-intrusive end to botting. Adding an attack requirement won't stop people from just botting with an iron axe, or as already mentioned, botting 40 attack. I feel JaGeX is doing a good job with how they're trying to combat bots, we as a community just need to be more proactive in reporting suspected abuse.
