You said you don't want to argue semantics?

I said sharing the fun is showing great responsibility, not that they are responsible to do so. I googled "show responsibility", and the first property was "doing what you are supposed to do". This is what I meant. Prioritising braggers' ability to brag over the fun of the community is what they are supposed to do.

I don't want to argue semantics when it comes to the definitions of gambling, but that's not to say I don't want to argue about semantics ever. > )

Regarding the rest, you lost me. But that probably doesn't really matter anymore.

It's a matter of opinion: Are partyhats meant to be cheerful holiday items or status symbols of braggers and merching tools of investors? It's biased to say one is "objectively better".

In that quote, I was talking about changing the meaning, not the meaning itself. Partyhats can work just as well as either, "cheerful holiday items" as they are in OSRS, or status symbols with historical value as they are in RS3. Once the meaning has already been decided, as it has been for both games, it'd be objectively harmful to change either into either direction. Not only do you piss off those that cared about the first meaning, but you also can't ensure that the second meaning is gonna remain; since it was already changed once, it could be changed again.

Even though it's not the subject, I'm still gonna mention that this is also why you shouldn't change games too much fundamentally either: in Runescape's case, the game has always been about grinding more than the actual result. If new people come in who'd rather have the opposite, and can't stand Runescape as it is, they'd be better off looking for another game that fits their need, or even ask for a new one, rather than changing Runescape. Since even newer players in the future could do the same thing for them.

I don't recall this was what you said, but anyway:

The first "meaning" actually was cheerful holiday items. Everyone could get them for free. When the holiday period ended and they became discontinued, that "meaning" was changed (the second "meaning"). Which of these two "meanings" is the correct one is subjective - it's a matter of opinion.

If this suggestion was something like "make dyes 100% reward from clues", then it would be a different story, since they were super rare to begin with, but your argument doesn't apply to partyhats.

Would all rares be allowed back on TH too? Or just partyhats. Because I'd like a black santa as well but it would suck if it was suddenly worth 20b because it is now the most valuable rare in the game. Make all rares available in TH or you'll have the same problem with every item down the line that's discontinued.

Would not surprise me now, it'd probably be the most effective cash-grab they've ever done. (even more than current bonus keys pop-up promotion)

Eventually it'll prolly happen, as I'm quite sure the investors care more about real money in their pockets vs virtual currency/wealth in their game.
