Note: This is about threads discussing in-game bugs, not about any bugs in the forum software itself.
For most of the forum's history, bug threads have been locked by forum moderators. Not always, but it's the common fate for threads like those.
However, sometimes they aren't locked, and are even given Fmod, Jmod, and Local Mod approval. Original message details are unavailable.
No worries, you did the right thing reporting the bug here!
It's important that you report it ingame too. I'm doing it right now, as well!
I'm sure they'll fix that as soon as possible.Here's a recent example.
I understand that the reason bug threads are not meant to be posted are because of the potential for exploitation, as well as bug reporting in-game is a lot more helpful to jagex. Thus, the question remains, should bugs that are harmful, but cannot be exploited, be allowed on the forums? The rule deserves to be clarified.
Example of what I think is OK:
-Bugs that can potentially harm a user, (a quest not awarding an xp lamp when it should, for example)
What isn't OK:
-Abuseable bugs (eating a potato cactus and then a cabbage allows you to steal from someone else's bank!)
Curious on rule clarification + other people's opinions on bug threads on the forums. Of course, bug reporting in-game is always a better option and a priority, but should these threads be allowed?
Don't forget – RuneScape members get TWO free spins a day instead of the usual one!
