If you were CEO of Jagex, would you keep the voting system in Old School Runescape or would you remove it so you could have more control on what updates do and do not go into Old School Runescape? I was just wondering. Personally, I would keep the voting system so the players of Old School Runescape would still have control about what does and what does not go into the game. What about you guys? :)

I'd remove it and fix the game myself. Skilling would be deleted off the hiscores after seeing how entitled they've gotten. I'd make every boss and instance PK-able since PvMers are far too babied without having to risk anything as well. voting no to any new polled skill :)

I would definitely keep the voting system in place. It is a crucial aspect of the game and encourages cooperation between the developers and the player-base. It's fairly unique to OSRS and I believe it's one of the most important tools we have at our disposal to keep the community united. The last thing I want to see is another fracture in an already fractured community; the voting system keeps that from happening.

That said, I might lower the passing threshold to 72% instead of 75%. It might seem like an insignificant change but there are a lot of excellent potential updates that have failed by a very small margin. Lowering the threshold by a few percent allows more content to be added into the game while still keeping the vast majority of the player-base happy.

By lowering the passing threshold, it also increases the probability that a new skill will enter the game, which would be absolutely outstanding for the overall health of the game and the company as a whole. A new skill brings in new players along with veterans who haven't played in a while, increasing the number of subscribing players, and thus increasing the companies profits. At the same it, it also gives the players brand new content that will significantly extend the lifespan of the game.

and thats whyyyy none of you own a jagex lol


If you actually watch their videos you would see alts dont effect nothing. As said many of times previous you lot need to get some oxygen outside because you all seem to think spite voting actually matters. Jagex will keep taking your bond money for your pointless votes. Just because you dont agree dont means it spite votes. 100 votes on an alt just laugh at that person think about there life lol.

No i would not change anything about voting. 75% perfect. I would not force anything into the game as rs3 found out.

everything pkable lol. Go to clan wars a barrage someone you mad yout

could argue 72% but 3% is fuck all it would just be put in plac to make people happy who moan about losing votes. then they would still moan.. Been polled to lower the percentage and that didnt even hit 70%

Writings on the wall.
