@ PapaJon - The above post goes for your last two reports as well.:
Locutus said:
...extremely minor instances such as this one should not be reported to Forum Help; they should simply be ignored.

The "bait" on those posts is minor and it is best if you just ignore it. (And ignoring does not mean posting "Flame bait ignored." as you did in response to one of the posts that your reported. It means not reacting to the bait in any way.)

@ Team Skull
- Thank you. Those particular posts do not require any moderator intervention, at this time. As both of those threads are of interest to the F Mod team, we do keep an eye on them and will take action if we determine it is needed.


@ CuddleBucket
- There is no way for the F Mod team to be able to identify who edited a user's signature, other than going through your profile to look for messages on every thread you have posted on recently.

As far as your proposed signature, it is essentially protesting action taken by moderation on your threads and account. Your forum signature is not the appropriate place to do that. There is the Forum Moderation Review V2. to contest actions taken by F Mods, and information in the Forum Offence System thread on how to appeal forum offenses.

@ Dong U Dead - Yes, it would have been nice if the list of previous thread holders had been included, but not doing so is not breaking any of the Forum Rules.

You had already rectified the omission before you posted here, so there really is no need for moderator intervention in this situation.

@ FiFi La Frou - While both threads are on the same topic, one appears more of a "What if...?"/"just wondering" type of thread, while the other is actually suggesting the feature. At this time, they are each fine to remain where they are currently posted.

@ Dong U Dead - Is your post above reporting a particular issue? If so please use the template from the first post so that we can find it.

If it's just a general observation, that is not really what this thread is used for. However, I can assure you that the F Mod team does its very best to remain impartial when taking moderator actions, and moderates according to the Forum Rules and the guidelines that Jagex has given to us.

@ Ultramega OK - It is not necessary to quote the entirety of each of the offending posts. Just the QFC and page/post #, per the template on the first post of this thread, are all that is needed.

I have posted a request that the clan's invitation template be changed to original and accurate content on a couple of the threads recently affected. I will try to keep an eye on future posts, to ensure the request has been complied with. :)

@ Inkslinger - Only 1 line looks like it might have been copied from your thread. And that line is similar to one that many clans use. This does not appear to be a case of plagiarism, and therefore no moderator action is needed at this time.

Do you have a request for an alternate title? "Rain Forest - Social/Skilling" should fit, if that would be ok for you

@ Why Despise - I realize you are frustrated with the way this has been handled, but please be aware there the F Mod team has procedures to follow and only a few tools at their disposal.

Yes, he is posting on several threads at a time. That is what most clan recruiters do. Typically, when there is an issue with a clan recruitment invite, we post to the user on their clan's recruitment thread to increase the chance that the request/warning will be seen. There is only a slim likelihood that he actually will look back at all those LFC threads and see a warning left on them. And to post the warning on all those LFC threads would essentially be spamming them.

In the case of this clan, they do not seem to have a recruitment thread of their own on the Forums, so there is not a good place to leave the warning, beside picking the LFC thread most recently posted on. And actually part of it has gotten through to him, as he has addressed 2 of the 3 issues previously brought to his attention. So hopefully he will get the rest of the message as well. It may just take a bit of patience on your part. :)

@ TabooFantasy - If their 'service' is providing a team, then they are allowed to choose either the "Business and Services" MarketPlace Forum, or the "TeamWork" Forum. Just like an FC that hunts, penguins, evil trees or shooting stars, may choose to use either the "Minigames and D&Ds" Forum or the "Recruitment – Specialist, Questing & Minigames" Forum.

As long as they as not advertising in both, and the forum they have chosen to use is relevant, it's fine.

@ Admiraal JK - This thread is for reporting issues with the forum, not in game issues.

The in-game reporting system does work, if you report the abuse at the time of the incident. That is the only way to provide Jagex with the evidence they need from their own systems to be able to take the necessary action.

The following Support Centre articles should prive useful to you:

- How to report a player

- The "I lost my items due to a scam" section of the Lost Items article in the Support Centre.

- Scamming prevention guide article

As you have also posted your concern on several other unrelated threads, those posts have also been removed.

@Kcin - We will honor your request for the thread lock for this time only. Typically we will only lock a new thread & let the author start over when the reserves have been broken. Your reserves were not broken in this case. It's just that you were not done filling the reserves with content.

As to your other concern, you cannot dictate who can or cannot post on your thread. If other's posts are breaking the Forum Rules, then report them here and the F Mod team will deal with those posts and the poster, per our procedures.

Please remember that the purposes of the forums are for having a discussion - not everyone will agree with your point of view, and the thread allows you to discuss those differences in viewpoint. The key word is to discuss those viewpoints, and it takes both sides to host a successful discussion.

However, over the course of your previous thread, you made several reports here of posts that were not rule breaking, but that you disagreed with or did not like the tone of. Please ensure that your reports here are for actual rule breaking.

Applejuiceaj said:
Hefin - The Social & Community Clans forum rules state: "This is the forum for all clans that just have fun, socialise and don't have any level requirements in order to join!"

However, per your clan thread, it appears you do have entry requirements:

Original message details are unavailable.
We do have requirements to join the clan however; which are:
> Be a paying member of Runescape
> 1800+ total skill level - or - 110+ combat


Based on that, the forum section your thread is currently in is a more appropriate section for your thread, so it has not been moved at this time.

Ms Toxicity said:
As mentioned above by Applejuiceaj on the 9th August, your thread will not be relocated, due to the fact that you have specific skill/combat requirements for your thread.

If the clan's focus changes from combat to more of a social clan, the thread will be moved.

Your clan still has a requirement of "1800+ total skill level - or - 110+ combat", so it cannot be moved to the Recruitment: Social and Community Clans Forum.

Lu k e - Those posts have not been actioned as the thread's author has replied to them , and they fall under the "Reporting Trivial Matters" section of the first post of this thread.

The F Mod Team deals with each report on this thread on a case by case basis, in an impartial manner, following the guidelines that Jagex has provided for us. In most cases, all that is needed is a report that provides the information asked for by the template in the 1st post. Neither editorial comments nor implied threats and attempts at intimidation should be part of your report

If you have concerns over the actions of a Forum Moderator, you may and should use the Forum Moderation Review thread, to request a review of those actions.

@ E s t a - If a player has found the solution to their issue in the Community Led Support forums, there is no need to report the thread here. It should be able to make its way off the forums naturally. If it turns out that instead of going inactive, it gets gravebumped or spammed, that would be the time to report it.

Also, it would really help us find the reported threads faster if you would use the QFC (Quick Find Code) listed at the top and bottom of each thread, rather than the URL that includes your session ID. Thanks

@ GP FarmerDib - You are frequently reporting the same individual, whom you obviously do not get along with. You should not be using Forum Help as a way of attempting to get revenge or to involve the F Mod Team in your personal vendetta against them. It is also a misuse of Forum Help to report someone for flaming when, even in the quote you used in your report, you are throwing the same insults at them as they used in their reply post to you.

Please reread the first post on how to use this thread, paying particular attention to the following sections from the first post on how to use this thread:

@ Redeveloped - There does not seem to be any word for word copying, rather just a similar style and structure. Nothing about the opening posts for the thread you reported requires F Mod intervention at this time.

When you post content for a clan, that content is considered to belong to that clan, even if you later leave that clan.

Doing a bit of searching, it appears that the clan you were all previously a part of had a split. Both of the new clans seem to have used the thread of the old clan as inspiration and a starting point for developing the threads of the new clan.

In fact, the thread for your clan is a direct copy and paste of the old clan's thread, verified by a cached copy of the old thread on Google. (The link to the application wasn't even changed and still leads back to the old clan's thread.)

Since the old clan still officially exists in the clan database, even though the content has been removed from the thread, it is your thread that would be asked to edit it's content, should one of the remaining members of the original clan request it.

@ FMI - There is no way that F Mods can verify what trades did or did not take place as claimed. Nor can we tell if two identical items were sold to two separate players for the same amount. As the trade posted is not being claimed to be on your behalf, but as the poster being party to the trade, there is not F Mods can do about it.

We would need the seller of the item to post here, if they wish to refute the trade as reported.

@ Boabies - Regarding your first report on the previous page - Those posts on your thread are on topic. You proposed "Add a fee ... that could be bypassed when skulled." As PKing is the most common way of becoming skulled, your thread does have something to do with PKers.

Regarding your second report - You reported your own post, which is flaming skillers. Please don't report others as flaming, when your posts, that they are responding to, have done the same.

@ Dong U Dead - You don't need to repost your request. It hasn't been ignored. However there are a couple of issues regarding the thread itself, which is why your title change request has not been acted on yet.

The first is why is you've created a new thread, rather than use your existing thread at QFC: 23-24-946-65923267.

The second is a concern over whether or not the first image on your opening post qualifies as "safe-for-work", as required by the Code of Conduct. While the actual content of the picture is completely innocent, at a glance it looks like something very different, which would neither be "safe-for-work" nor appropriate for the forums, as I'm sure you are aware. It would certainly cause alarm among any coworkers or bosses who saw it on a forum users screen.

I hope this explains the delay and hesitation in acting upon your request. A determination on those concerns needs to be made before we can follow through on your title change request.

@ Jokku23 - As mentioned in the Forum Closure Imminent! sticky, Businesses & Services is to be merged with Miscellaneous to become Business, Services and Miscellaneous, and that would be the best place to have your thread moved to.

As your thread will max out anyways in one more page, you might consider just starting your new thread in the Business, Services and Miscellaneous Forum, rather than moving a nearly maxed thread.

Let us know what you'd like to do :)

@ LookItsShawn - I assume you are talking about a clan thread. Ideally, the poster of the original thread should ask for it to be locked. If he is not available to do that, then the current Clan Owner or a Deputy Owner can post here to request that the thread be closed.

Then the clan is free to have the thread reposted by an active member, in the appropriate recruitment forum. (The Clan Home Forum is not used for recruitment threads.)

@ Jokku23 - I'll move the suggestion threads that do not appear to have been completely abandoned, as those contain a lot of work and feedback, and would be difficult to recreate.

The MarketPlace threads should be easy enough for the authors to recreate, if they even still have the items to sell or are still active in game.

Not much point in moving any thread that has been abandoned.

(PS The 'troll' thread is not in a forum that is closing)

@ Always - Just like clans, to be fair to all, each FC should only have one thread open at a time to advertise the services they provide.

For example a clan could do both PvM and social activities, but they may not advertise in both the Recruitment - Social & Community Clans Forum and the Recruitment – 100 Combat and over Forum. They would need to pick which one they would prefer to advertise under, and just use that forum.

Yes, your FC does more than one thing. But there is no reason why you cannot use one thread to advertise both, with a new title such as "Solak Leech" Solak/Elite Dung and some formatting, such as a Table of Contents, to allow potential customers to quickly find the information they are looking for.

If you still have issues with the action taken on your thread, you may use the Forum Moderation Review thread, to ask for a J Mod to review that.

@ Luis Vlad - This thread is for reporting forum related issues and is not for in-game issues. It is manned by the Forum Moderator team, who are all players, like yourself, and are unable to see details of other players' accounts.

If you think it was a bug, I suggest that you submit a bug report about your cape.
How to report a Bug

If you had the cape when you logged out and it was missing when you logged in, it's possible someone else accessed your account. In which case, you should follow the instructions to secure your account.

@ Pizzamaru - I have unlocked the thread. For future reference, if you are just using the thread to test your coding, it wouldn't hurt to mention that near the top of the first post.

Once you do have your recruitment thread up and running in the appropriate, it would be a good idea for the author of the thread of the clan that merged with you to make a post on their thread to refer people to your new thread, and then post here to request the old thread be closed.

@ Itnachos11 - Regarding the hidden post - the user edited their original post and changed it to an accusation towards another user, which is not permitted. That is why it was hidden. As mentioned in the reply left, if they had left it as they had originally posted, it would have been fine. The posts that quote what the user originally posted have been left visible. Hope this help you to understand.

@ westonasdf - You've reported a post for flaming. However, that post was in response to your own post that was a flame-bait post. That is a misuse of this thread.

However, to answer your question the lance is a two handed melee weapon override. You need to be wielding a two handed melee weapon in order for it to work.

Please see the Support Centre Security page for links to instructions on securing your account, computer and registered email. If you need additional assistance with that, you may post a thread in the Community Led Account Help Forum to ask for that.

I encourage you to not give up on the game. While Jagex's policy is that they do not return items lost due to account theft, the hijackers cannot steal your skill levels, and therefore you should be able to quickly earn back what you have lost. There is also a link in the article for you to use to provide Jagex with additional information on the hijacking to help them catch the hijacker.

@ strong goku1 - That person was trying to get your account details.

- Jagex will never contact players in-game or via email to offer them moderator status or discuss account issues. That will only be done through the RS Message Center.

- If anyone approaches you claiming to be a Jagex Moderator and does not have a gold crown in front of their name and their name does not start with "Mod", they are not a J Mod and should be reported for Staff Impersonation. The gold crown will show in all forms of chat, public, private and clan chat.

- Do not follow links that you have been given by others to access the RuneScape site. Instead type the address yourself, or use browser bookmarks that you have set yourself.

For future reference, please remember that this thread is for reporting or getting assistance with forum related issues, as outlined in the first post. Thanks

@ Dong U Dead - Youtu.be is a shortened URL that is also owned by Youtube. It's used to conserve characters when posting to social media sites, such as Twitter. The link should take you to the YouTube site.

Vimeo is another well established video hosting site.

Neither of those sites should pose a risk to your computer.

It is not for getting assistance with in-game issues.

My best advice is to check your Achievements: Click the Hero (sword) icon on the game ribbon > Achievents > Exploration > Tirannwn, and check the box on 'Hide Completed' to verify that all of the Medium tasks have been completed.


If they are, and Gwir still will not award you with the quiver 2, then create a thread in the RuneScape Guides and Help Forum for ask for additional assistance.

@ Combat Medic - I appreciate that the thread's layout is still similar to yours. However, we have compared both threads section by section, and their content is now different enough from yours that, as Applejuiceaj explained above, "both threads can remain open on the forums without requiring additional changes to their content at this time."

We don't allow plagiarism or copy/pasting one group's thread and just re-labelling it for another, and that is is something that can be seen objectively and action can be taken. Two threads having a similar "look and feel" is a more subjective comparison and not something that Forum Mods can require be changed.

@ JoinNexAoDFC - Please see CM Brandon's reply on page 831 of this thread.

As well, we can only moderate based on what we see on the forums. Events on third party sites are not relevant here.

As the account you are posting from is the one with the security issues, that misrepresented the situation and involved the moderation team into the drama of the FC split, we will not be actioning anymore reports from that account. If an issue arises, please advise the FC owner so he can post here, or post with your own account.

Thank you

@ NexAod & @NexAodMass - The issues and accusations surrounding the drama between your two FC's is so tangled and convoluted, it is impossible for the moderation team to determine what actually happened and who really is entitled to the content from the old threads. And we have spent quite a bit of time and effort trying to do so.

Therefore, we have decided to go back to a decision the J Mods made a couple years ago when there was a similar situation with a couple of clans:

- The content on the older threads now belongs to Jagex, and will not be available for either group to use.

- Both FC's current threads are now locked.

- Both groups should create their own new and original content for their FC's thread.

- Both group's members should stay off of the other group's thread.

- Both groups should stop mis-using Forum Help to disrupt and get revenge on the other.

@ Vlumondoxa - Regarding the thread you have recently reported here several times, it appears that you misunderstood something the user said, and took it as a personal attack when it does not appear to have been intended that way. Unfortunately, your reply to the perceived attack inflamed the situation. I have hidden your posts that were a result of that misunderstanding. I will lock the thread, once I am sure that the user has gotten the information and understanding that he needs out of it.

I appreciate that when you are posting in the Community Led Account Help Forum, you are trying to help others. The best advice for doing that is to remember that those seeking help in that Forum are already most certainly frustrated, and may be also be panicking, angry, embarrassed, scared of losing their account, ready to give up, or on the verge of exploding. It is important when giving them information or 'bad news' that they do not want to hear, that you consider their feelings and do your best to frame that information in a way which keeps the tension down and is patient and supportive, rather than blaming.

I hope this makes sense. :)

@ YURY - The main concern with bumping is that it not be excessive.

Bumps are only to be used to keep a thread near the front pages of a Forum. Bumping a thread that is already on Page 1 is not necessary and is considered excessive and spam.

It is preferred that a thread author use the bump button to bump his or her thread, rather than making a bump post, as that makes it much easier to find the actual content in a thread without having to weed through all the bump posts.

While bump posts may be used to bump a thread, if that is how the author wishes it to be done, they should not be made more frequently than the use of the bump button would allow, which is once every 10 minutes. More frequently than that is also considered excessive.

@ Aqua Auron0 - Reposting the same reports "hoping another fmod was able to review it at a different time" is F Mod shopping, (which is different than asking for an explanation or clarification) and not something that you should be doing here. Yes, I reviewed each of your individual reports, (except for two which were not on the pages you stated they were on, and the post you linked them do was a totally different post).

Again, if you have issues with the moderation that has already taken place on that thread, the Forum Moderation Review thread is the place to express that.

@ RupertGiles2 - If you find yourself constantly getting into arguments on the forums with the same people, then it's best that you ignore their posts and not attempt to reply back.

If they are making accusations, then just report that here, and do not respond on the thread. It takes more than one party to make and sustain a flame war.

@ H iman & Harvnation - This thread is not to be used to argue about or protest another poster's reports. There is certainly no need to report posts that are made on this thread as they will all be seen and investigated by an F Mod, usually before any post reporting them will be seen.

As far as the price reports are concerned, just because one players ranges differ from another, that does not make either of them spam or rule breaking. If you don't like someone's ranges, you can state a conflict or choose to ignore them. What is rule breaking is using the price check threads to flame or make accusations/insinuations about other posters.

CM Nick's recent post on another price status thread, applies to all of them:

Okay, I've hidden some more off-topic posts, and I'd just like to say something here...

When it all comes down to it, even though we are obviously invested in fostering a safe place for Item Discussion and price checking -
Trusting prices listed on the forums is always done so at your own risk.


Let me be clear - price manipulation is not in the spirit of the community, nor is it what this forum is for, and it is not tolerated or encouraged by any means! Price manipulation goes against the spirit of the community, and especially the spirit of these threads!

HOWEVER, objectively determining if someone is actually price manipulating is a time-consuming and often fruitless process, and is not something that FMods or even CMs are tasked with doing.

It has become enough of a task for the Mod team to just keep this thread in check in regards to keeping it on-topic these days, and as you know, there is a dedicated thread for issues of price manipulation and - say what you want to about its effectiveness - that IS the official channel to use for these sorts of situations, and you all should know enough not to bring accusations into ID threads.

Posting accusations and the like in this thread is just more derailment, creates more work for the moderation team, and ultimately doesn't solve anything aside from getting pages of posts hidden.

Please, going forward, I'd love if the users on this thread could act in good faith and work together in the interest of the community and to keep the personal arguments and price manipulation accusations out of this thread.

Thank you!

@ Tophurious - We do our best to protect an author's thread from rule breakers. However, there are times when a topic get so heated or overwhelmed that there are more hidden posts than discussion posts. When that happens, it is often better to lock the thread, and possibly (determined on a case by case basis) allow the author to repost a fresh thread.

If you have concerns over the actions of an F Mod, those are best addressed in the Forum Moderation Review thread.

@ CuddleBucket - That user has already received excellent advice on their thread. I could move the thread to the Community Led Account Help Forum, but as they've already gotten advice from one of the awesome Community Helpers, there's not much point in moving it now.

@ H iman - As they are posting offers on a MarketPlace thread, those posts are not rule breaking, and therefore do not require moderator intervention. As they are ignoring your request for "PM only", you also are free to ignore their offers. Consider them free bumps ;)

@ RAVER_1 - It looks like you may be logging into Old School RuneScape. Your stats are in the current RuneScape (RS3) version of the game.

While Old School RuneScape is based on a backup of the game files from 2007, it is a separate game that was released in 2013. Everyone starts from scratch in that version. See the Dude... where's my stats? article in the Support Centre for additional information on that.

Please note that this thread, as explained in the first post, is for getting assistance with forum related issues. For game related issues, you should post your own thread in the relevant forum for the topic.

@ VasaTekVesp - Please do not mis-use this thread. Your report for flaming included a quote of your own post using the exact same insult that you reported the other player for using.

Please remember the rules for this thread, including what it should not be used for:

Baiting Players - Posting in a manner that deliberately invites or provokes negative responses or personal attacks (trolling/baiting) and then reporting those attacks, is
considered a misuse of this thread

@ Imbasketball - While I can understand that you disagree with the recent posts, they do seem to be on topic, and are not breaking any forum rules, to require moderator action at this time.

You are under no obligation to accept or refute his statements, and may choose to ignore them rather then respond to them.

@ Imbasketball - You are not being ignored. Unfortunately, many of the posts that you perceive as harassment or flaming do not qualify as that under our guidelines, nor are they actually breaking any of the forum rules.

Yes, the user likes to debate and his style of posts can come across as aggressive or annoying, but they are not rule breaking. The F Mod team can and does take action, if you report posts that are rule breaking. However, we cannot and will not take action on someone's posts, just because you don't like them.

The best advice is that while these forums do not have an ignore feature, you can use your own mental ignore button, if you find that another user's posts irritate you. If you see their name, just ignore their posts and don't read or respond to them.

@ Imbasketball - Please remember the rules of this thread:
Mod Meadows said:
Need an explanation or clarification?

- If you don't understand the action that was taken or not taken, you can ask for an explanation or clarification. Depending on the time and context, this will be done as promptly as it can be, but please be patient.
However, you can only do this
once per issue
, if you continue to post, this will be considered
a misuse of this thread
.

You have a dozen posts questioning/complaining about the actions taken and not taken. You have received several explanations, all boiling down to the fact that what you are reporting is not rule breaking and therefore no moderator action can be taken. Continuing to post about this is a mis-use of the thread.

@ Harvnation - That post has now been edited to provide more clarity.

Yes, you do have the same posting rights. You are more than welcome to post what you believe are the current price ranges, without having to mention that it conflicts with the prices others have posted. Anyone using the thread for price research will see that the ranges don't agree and can make up their own minds as to which ranges they think are more accurate.

If you do decide to point out a conflict, just make sure that you are following your own advice to "post criticism in a way as to not direct it at certain players, but rather address it so community can view it impartially."

Quoting
- Before posting and reporting another player, make sure you have not quoted the reported post if you chose to reply to it.
If you have quoted the post, you will most likely have your post hidden also!

I would like to know which forum f2p can't post in, I have never come across it - must be because I am f2p it's hidden??

The Mobile Early Access - Feedback Forum, appears to be a 'members only' forum, to help ensure that the feedback is from players that are actually trying it, as you need to have membership in order to play on Early Access Mobile.

@ iTimmeh - Your thread was locked because the MarketPlace Forums have a limit of 4 active threads per user, and you had 5 active threads in the forum at that time. In choosing which of your threads to lock, it was decided to choose the thread for items that were also included in one of your other threads, so as to have the smallest possible impact on your advertised trades.

The users you have reported above, while yes, some of their threads have overlap in their items advertised, do not have more than 4 threads currently active, and therefore no moderator action is required at this time.

Hope this clarifies things.

@ Sicariu - There is nothing the F Mod Team can do about that specific situation. There is no easy way for us to determine which prices are accurate or not. As Mod Poerkie stated:
Mod Poerkie said:
It's become very difficult to manage and take action against price manipulations and therefor we should no longer treat the forums as a source of truth and we advise everyone to do their own research before participating in discontinued and/or high value items.

@ Goldberry - A thread maxes out when it reaches the end of Page 200 (2000 posts). At that time no further posts can be made on it.

Most clans start making a new thread when their current thread is a couple of pages away from that so that they may make posts on the old thread that give out the QFC of the new thread.

The maxed thread does not need to be locked, but some clans prefer to have a padlock placed on their maxed threads to make it easier to spot the new thread when doing a thread search. If you wish the old thread to be locked once you new one is made, you may use this thread to request that.
