I don't want a stupid party hat. Just give me the billions they are worth. Even if they did add these to TH they'd be untradeable.
uhmm ok. You realise ingame currency will have 0 value if everyone was just given billions of coins. Also why are u jumping into conclusions?? Whos to say what can or can't be tradeable.

If party hats were made available again, this would reduce their price to close to that of chef's hat's currently are.

So... Go buy a chef's hat :)

Yes? So if I buy a chef's hat you'll support? Or what's your point? Please elaborate, cheers!

The only people that support this are people that don't have partyhats. This would destroy the economy and ruin many peoples profiles. Partyhats are among the rarest items in the game, keep it that way. If Jagex does this then Runescape is ruined for good.

That does not appear to be valid, but even if there is a correlation, then one might speculate that the overwhelming majority would support this type of thing, which means there is potentially very solid support in favour of Partyhats on Treasure Hunter! :D

It is unlikely that the economy would be destroyed because, as you mentioned, these items are rare which means that not many people are able to participate in the partyhat market. So, if most people are not in the partyhat market then the economy would not experience any significant negative impact. In fact, the economy would be improved because it would create jobs! :D :D

That is, by increasing the supply of partyhats the economy would be strengthened as it would create opportunities for entrepreneurs to enter the partyhat market, more people would be able to buy and sell partyhats. Thus, by increasing the supply of partyhats, via Treasure Hunter, the in-game economy would strengthen as these entrepreneurial activities increase and provide employment opportunities and new jobs!!! :D :D :D

Additionally, it would also strengthen Jagex because with this revenue source they could hire more people to create more awesome updates for everyone to enjoy!!

So, everyone should support Partyhats on Treasure Hunter since it will strengthen the economy and it will create employment opportunities both in-game and in real life!!! ^_^

You're incorrect Kalea. You only hear what you want to hear and refuse to listen to reason. Anyone with any sense realizes this and doesn't take you or the OP serious. You have little to no experience in the economy if you think putting partyhats on treasure hunter will not affect it in a BAD way. You refuse to work hard and earn one like everyone before you has. Using the justification "it would be fun for everybody" isn't true. If you put half the energy you do on working hard in game rather than type the same argument to everyone who attempts to pass you some sense, you might actually have a shot at one.

It's understandable that you might object to the OP's proposal, however, the OP has offered a reasonable solution to your concerns already. ^_^

That it might be "fun for everybody," is perhaps just a manner of speaking, and indeed perhaps an overstatement, honestly however, it would perhaps be more accurate to say, "fun for an overwhelming majority," which a reason that there is optimism for very solid support for Partyhats on Treasure Hunter!! :D

Yet, you haven't provided any explanation about any negative impact on the economy, how would it be bad as you suggest?

As it has been explained is that the economy would be strengthened as it would increase market competition, open opportunities for many more entrepreneurial employment endeavours and these goods would become more reasonably priced.

For those fashionscape minded folks, the partyhats would become more reasonably priced as market competition opens the door for bargain hunters. It's hard work to earn gold pieces, so why pay billions more when you can get it on sale at a more competitive price. :)

So, the economy would strengthen as these entrepreneurial activities increase, provide employment opportunities, new jobs, reasonably priced goods, and that's just one reason to support Partyhats on Treasure Hunter!! ! :D

Partyhats in RS3 are end-game items. They are NOT equivalent to constantly distributed partyhats in OSRS.

If you were suddenly to change the dynamic of the RS3 partyhat from a discontinued (I feel like none of you understand the meaning of this word) state to a state similar to OSRS it would have devastating impacts.

OSRS can get away with cheap partyhats as it isn't a staple of their economy. Partyhats are indeed a staple for RS3. If you took the worlds most valuable item, especially an item that people use as value holders, and you distribute it to the masses, you're going to collapse your market plain and simple.

I'm so sick of people saying that partyhats are impossible to earn. NO they are not impossible, yes they are hard but that's what makes them worth it. Go bossing and keep up with latest bosses. When Araxxor came out I completed a leg as fast as I could and I made 400mil on it. My second leg made about 300mil. By simply keeping up with the latest updates you can earn so much money in such a fast time. You lazy players just want everything to be so easy. Learn to work for something that you want.

Granted that it might be a matter of opinion as to what constitutes the "end-game," because there is a sandbox quality to the game which makes the idea subjective but, it is noted here that the crackers that contained the partyhats were given out for free so, in this sense they are actually fun party items rather than "end-game" content.

Just because they are "discontinued" now, there is always the potential for things to change because the game is constantly being updated and so, in the future the crackers and partyhats could potentially be released again as the developers refresh the content. :)

Regardless of whether or not the partyhats are "end-game" content or not, these goods are clearly not a "staple" item since they are not part of the basics of either skilling or combat. The "staples" of the gameplay are things like ores, runes, weapons, armour, etc. etc.

Even though the partyhat market might become more competitive, the overall economy will fluctuate normally and be stable, which means that the collapse of the partyhat market will have little effect on the economy and, the economy could strengthen as prices become more reasonable as the market shifts away from excessivly overinflated wealth tokens and towards the spirit of fun and celebration as the items were meant to be enjoyed. :D
