What's up with locking bot threads in the general forum? Shouldn't we encourage people to talk about issues like this instead of hiding it in the least active forum? Yes I'm looking at you ôOther - Discussion & Suggestions*
Hi i Zaros,
Apologies for missing your post. :)
What's up with locking bot threads in the general forum? Shouldn't we encourage people to talk about issues like this instead of hiding it in the least active forum? Yes I'm looking at you ôOther - Discussion & Suggestions*
The only reason bot threads would be locked is if they are not posted in the correct forum, or if someone was encouraging others to download and use a bot in RuneScape.
There are plenty of bot discussion threads in the forum that you have mentioned. That is exactly where I go to get feedback regarding bots from the community to pass on to the relevant departments here.


Q.) Mod Jane ľ Which teams do you think could be available for a future Q&A? Will we be able to vote for which team weĺd like to ask questions to next?
The reason the Game Engine Team were here tonight was due to a quick poll back in February this year. They won which is why they're here tonight.
Mod Pi and Mod Giragast are here because we thought you'd love to ask questions about future update. :)
We'll definitely put up another quick poll for you guys to choose from. But maybe we'll do it in two parts again. I think this Q&A with parts 1 and 2 have worked really well. Besides I have a department in mind that I'm sure many people here would love to grill! :D

@Mod Jane
Are you the Queen of Nature :)?

No, but I'm loving that title! ;)
Would you be apart of the Evil Chicken Minions!!!
Never! Chocatrice all the way!
Do you have any goals at Jagex & RuneScape? (It can be for the Community maybe ingame Q&A - This can work with less lag :P)
I have lots of goals! My in-game one is to get 99 RuneCrafting so I cannot wait for The Runespan to come out. I've seen it and it's really awesome! ^_^

bit off topic but...
mod jane, what are you wearing on your head? (in your forum pic :P)

It's the Third-Age Druidic Wreath. Pretty isn't it? My personal account could never afford it sadly.

Mod Jane,
~ Have the 90,000,000 account display/names been fully freed up, or has this not yet taken place?

I believe I answered this question in the Q&A earlier. I believe they're still going through the system, but I'll find out how it's going on Monday :)

@ CM Team - Are any long term players ever considered when you select players to become P-Moderators?

Yes they are, as well as the rest of the community. We like to get a good mix when adding them to the existing team. :)

@Mod Jane in the past Q&A answers were put into a newspost after the event had taken place. Is it possible that this could happen again in future as they are good for reference but often are eaten by the page 51 monster?

Hey Wees,

I did answer this one in the last Q&A. I think it's a great idea to collect all the answers from tonight's Q&A and pop them in one thread. I'll see what I can do on Monday. :)

This is for Mod Jane and/or Mod Stevew so they don't feel left out :P Keeping up with and managing the Runescape community must be tricky and frustrating sometimes but can also be very rewarding and fun. What would you say is the best thing about working in Community Management and getting to interact with the Runescape community?

Thanks for not leaving us out! :D

I have only been with Jagex for a year, however, I have been playing RuneScape for 7 years! So I came to Jagex with a passion for the game and the community already. Being here and working directly with that same community is the highlight of my job, for me it's more than a job, I really love what I do and love coming to work each day because it is never the same each day.

I love nothing more than jumping in game and chatting with people and I have been known to go a little crazy with rubber chicken in hand chasing bewildered players around the GE. :D

So watch out.. you never know if that chicken whacking sound is me! ;)

@Steve

I noticed you accidentally posted your CM forum features in the previous Q&A!

Hide Profile Edit Highlight Bump Bad Good Message Delete Hide-All Mute Kick Ban

Sorry, I'm just intrigued to know what "kick" does - the others are self explanatory.


Unfortunately I don't have the 'kick' permission. Mod SteveW is the only person that does! :D

@Mod Stevew
Is the Community Management Team/Jagex planning on adding an appeal system for forum offenses? For example, that would allow permanently muted forum users to appeal their mute(s) and potentially regain their foruming privileges?

Unfortunately, there is not a system in place for this at the moment. However, if you'd like me to have a look at your account, I'd be happy to.
Let me know what account name to look up. :)

To Mod Jane,
Could you pass for me to the Engine guys if they could make some interesting dev blogs about work they are doing? Like new engine stuff or future Runetek technologies, i forgot to ask. :(

I can certainly ask! I'll do that Monday! :)

Alot of posts get hidden, people flaming or something?
No, not at all. We're hiding the threads to indicate to each other here that we're either working on a reply or have answered the questions contained within that post.
It stops everyone trying to answer the same post. :)

@Mod Jane and Mod Stevew: As a general question to both of you, how does interacting with many, many players on a regular basis and communities upon communities as a whole influence you in real life?
I presume it makes you more eager to connect to others!

For me, I'm generally a very chatty person. So yes, I think you might be right, I do tend to talk to complete strangers more than I did before.
One of my favourite things is jumping in game and surprising people, whacking them with the rubber chicken and running off. I wonder if I can get away with that in the supermarket. :D

To CM Team:

How many Pmods do you reckon there are in total? :O


I'm unable to get a hold of the exact figure right now, but it's in the region of 2,000. :)

Every account? Seriously? Email and recovery set on accounts that I barely care about too? I lost track of many creations and rarely play on others.

Yep, every account. You'd be surprised how many have been turned down because they have an account where they feel they can break the rules and not have that affect their 'main' account. ;)

Having said that, we do check the accounts personally and judge each one on its own merit. :)

@ Mod Jane.
Have you already got an idea of who will be in the next Q&A?


Yes, however I'd like to do another Q&A with 2 parts, so how about I pick a department and we do a quick poll so you guys can decided who to have as well?

And if your answer's yes, will you please tell us? :)

I do have a department in mind, however, I won't reveal all yet as they don't even know they are about to be asked yet! :D

@SteveW/Jane

I love the forums, I really do. 2 months ago in the Q&A there was a list posted of wants for the forums. I was wondering if any forum update is currently in the works and if there was any spoilers into it. :P


The forums are being revised, with many of the functions that people have requested and is being deployed in two phases.

Phase 1 - will see a few improvements such as text formatting and hope to see this by the end of the Summer.

Phase 2 - will bring the forums bang up to date and hope to have that at the end of the year.

Both projects are heavily involved, we're keeping our fingers crossed for the timescale above, but please don't hold me to it! :P

Also, there has been a lot of shifts in J-mod activity lately (in CM), specifically roles and a few leaving. It would be awesome if an updated list would be posted.

We'll look into doing this as soon as possible. :)

Lastly, any insight of some of how the f-mod team works? The role really does intrest me and the group is so secretive and they never can tell me anything. :(

Not actually sure what kind of information you're after with regards to the F-Mod team. So I think I'll be secretive and say.. I'm not telling :P

To Anyone:

If you were to disregard the staff impersonation rule, do you ever wish you could login to your normal, non-modded account and tell everyone you're Mod Jane/Mod Stevew/Mod ____?

Though it might be kinda weird if you were Mod Jane telling everyone you were Mod Stevew :P


To be honest, I've never thought of logging in on my private account and telling people I'm Mod SteveW. :D

However, when I do log in on my private account, I like to just enjoy the game, I like that players don't know that I'm a Jagex Moderator. ^_^

Hiya Jane and Stevew. :)

First off, I just wanted to say thank-you again for taking the time to stay late at work to answer all of our questions. ;)


Hi Collins892! You're very welcome! Actually we really enjoy this part of the job!

On to business:

Any word on when the next in-game event held by Jagex will be? I miss the old Player and Jagex events from a few years ago. Even a massive Conga Line would be great. The Events Community would like to see some more Jagex events in the future, we really miss you all. ;) That is about it for me. Thank you again and talk to you soon.


An event you say? Well how about this! This is posted in the Event forum!


HAHAHA! I am Eggstrovert the extrovert! If you think the battle between the Chocotrice and the Evil Chicken was something that was just a bit of fun, then think again. The struggle between the Chocotrice and the Evil Chicken is serious business and my employer, wants to see blood spilt over this encounter!

So, at the times listed below, my representatives will be standing in the center Varrock ready to set the followers of the Chocotrice against the followers of the Evil Chicken. So meet here, showing your allegiance by wearing the egg hats of your choice and armed with your eggsterminators.



14th April
10am
4pm
10pm

15th April
10am
4pm
10pm

My representatives will then choose a team to defend an egg and tell that team the where the egg is. This team must make their way to the egg in all haste as shortly the attacking team will be given the location. Once this happens the attacking team must then collect the egg. If anyone on either team is shot by a cannon you must home teleport to the nearest location and hightail it back to the egg. Every 10 minutes a new egg location will be given out and the roles of the attacker and defenders will change.

We are sure that there are many heroes who want to take part so please feel free to leave a bio in this thread telling us your characters history and why you support the team you do.

To everyone:

Favourite headgear in the game? I'd have to say bunny ears for me.. so cute!


I too am a big fan of the bunny ears! However, lately I have been wearing this Third-Age Druidic Wreath. ^_^

Also, what did you guys have for tea tonight? I'm overwhelmed with curiosity :P

Our onsite restaurant made us a lovely cold buffet. I meant to take some pictures of it to share with you all, however, I forgot and it's been completely demolished now! :D

First off: It is AWESOME you are doing this, i hope to see stuff like this in future :)

Glad you like it! We really hope to do lots more, sometimes it's difficult dragging people away as everyone is really busy here. But we will find a way! :)


Alright i have a question about f2p runespan, will there be rewards?

I've just asked Mod Pi about this one.. he said:

"The rewards are members only."

However, I have personally seen the update and I can confirm that the area itself is reward enough. You'll be getting a whole new way of earning RuneCrafting XP and I'm sure everyone will enjoy this update. :)

Does this mean that if I created pure accounts that I never use, never log into, and have pretty much forgotten about that such accounts could effect me in selection?

Not at all. It would only affect you if you used those accounts for dishonourable purposes. :)

When investigating an account to become a mod, considering you look into all other accounts from that owner, do you also take into consideration how often the other accounts are logged into? Just wondering n_n

Yes, as well as the usual checks we do, we also judge each one on its own merits. :)

@Mod Jane/Mod SteveW:

You mentioned that you check EVERY account made by a player for suitability to become a Moderator, does this include accounts that we (Or someone else using our computer) made many years ago?


All I can add to what we've already said, is that as well as the check we carry out, we are also able to judge each prospective moderator on their own merits.

Sometimes, it's not always straight forward, we have to use our judgement too.
