I think from a pure cost to benefit analysis having real time Jagex moderated friend's chats would be quite difficult. However, you can join the friend's chats of many Jagex moderators, though these aren't often ideal for organizing in-game activities and chatting with friends. My suggestion would be that unless you are in a friend's chat with actual friends, to drop the 'friend' and think of it as 'just another chat'. They serve their purposes... penguin finding, flipping, etc. But friendly they are often not.

For context I really do hear you. Several years ago I used to play this game on another account, and I was in a chat aimed at flippers. The players in this chat were beyond rude, and I sincerely hope they stub their toe getting out of bed every morning. But the reality is these chats weren't meant to be 'friends' chats, they were run with an iron fist to accomplish their purpose. Many of their leaders were evil. That said, Jagex will step in when the need is there, but historically they have a bit of a hands off approach.

Don't take it personally, use the report button, and don't be afraid to leave chats/clans that are toxic.
I'm the same Pal54 as was many years ago - message if you're an old friend :)

Poor representation of the communities guidelines including but not limited to rudeness, harassment, foul language towards players, unhelpful and useless arguments that lead to nowhere


this has nothing to do with jagex at all. but the friends chat itself (ive removed scamming from the list)

Gambling is a HUGE controversy in the gaming market at the moment and I am on the side of it where it should only be allowed in the casinos.


and player run game of chance is against the rules already.

im unsure what you are wanting to get at? if you know of a fc that is scamming / gambling report the people doing so

The gambling is more towards the duel arena. That may be more of a clan thing but my whole point is you make your reports but you can't bring down the empire

Yes I can understand that a jagex mod in the friends chat 24/7 is a bit unrealistic. However a good start would be them having OWNERSHIP of said friends chat that are popular.

If someone in a friend's chat is breaking Jagex rules you can report them.

If you don't find a friend's chat works for you, try another one or create your own.

If a friend's chat has rules and you aren't following them, they are allowed to kick you, you agree to their rules by using their chat. They can kick or block you from entering their chat for any reason or for no reason, as long as they follow Jagex rules they can add additional rules for their chat.

Again, if they are breaking Jagex rules you can report them.

I read your post and I feel there's more behind it and would be glad if you could enlighten us with these answers:

* If Jagex had ownership of one or several Friend Chats, what results would you like to happen?

* If ownership isn't an option, what is your opinion on stricter rules of player behavior? That way if people cross the line, then victims can take action through player reports (which are read by the Moderators) and get the people behind bad experiences out of the way.

* If Jagex were to claim ownership of Friends Chats, do you have any suggestion on how content creators and players with new ideas can create a community where they can gather people together? Today that's done through advertising the name of the FC, which is very easy to join and its main sellpoint.
