Since my first thread got closed by mention a name, I will make another..
It doesn't seems like Jagex care about people who are botting.
Daily i see +10 people who do so, and a single guy who have been botting for 2 months straigth, with more than 30 reports by users, and still ain't banned.
I got told by a staff member they will perm ban people, but wouldn't it be better if people who botting getting IP-ban so do they can't do it again? Or is it really that much worth for Jagex to get a couple of bucks, since it feels like that they don't really care about the problem. The problem about perm ban a single account is that the person just will transfer the items and gold to the main account, and then bot again on a new account.

If the problem is that big, that the staff not got time for banning all those people who botting why then not get some freelancers to swing the ban hammer?

Botting is ruining the game...

If you're referring to your last thread, the advice given was by a forum moderator, not a staff member.

They do ban bots, often in quite large numbers. The trouble is, it's a never ending cycle: more bots simply replace those that are banned. Yes, in extreme cases they will ban all associated accounts, but you have to remember that an IP ban can be relatively easily worked around. If someone wants to actively bot, particularly for gold farming purposes, they'll find a way.

The fact that the individuals you have reported haven't been banned suggests one of two things. They could be completely innocent, or JaGex is still working on gathering evidence to administer a punishment. They won't ban them straight away.

Regardless, there's nothing more you can do about this on the forums. Just report the player(s) in question and move on. One report is enough.

Lock part II.

As Trewavas has said nothing can be done about this on the forums.

Reports take time and Jagex have to gether evidence before slapping them with a perm ban.

I've locked this thread too as nothing on the forums can be done about bots. If you suspect anyone of botting then just report in game and Jagex do deal with them.
