hey everyone I don't know if this is the correct place to post this but in a effort to reward members of my clan with capping at the citadel every week we wanted to send something to a member of the clan (picked at random) as a prize.
My question is: is this OK to do? can we send real world items to clan members for the capping they do in game? or does this break the real world item trading rule?
note: we have not done this yet we are deciding if this is something we actually want to do but wanted to get the research done first before someone gets in trouble for it.
Well RWT means paying real money for in game items so it shouldn't break that rule. But you're not allowed to ask for personal information such as names and addresses, so I don't know if you'd get in trouble for that.
gotcha. assuming we didn't use runescape as a medium of communication to get information like that is that still breaking rules. like for instance lets say we use discord to communicate where something can be sent or picked up would that be an effective "work-around"?
Assuming there's no buy-in and all clan members are able to enter for a chance to win at no cost to them (whether gp or real currency), then this shouldn't break either the RWT or player-run games of chance rules.
While it seems like a nice idea to reward clan members this way, as Molly Weazly said, you're running the risk of breaking a rule for asking for clan members' personal information to send real items to them through the mail.
If you're looking for other potential prizes, I'd suggest gift cards that don't have limitations on them (some are limited to specific countries) because you can easily send the code to a winner. Otherwise, you could use in-game items, or Bonds, as prizes to keep it strictly within the game.~ Sicariu

Well I would say that doesn't break official rules. Like if you had a clan fb page, that would be outside Jagex's purview so you're not breaking their rules.
But I would recommend getting an official answer so you know you're totes safe, lol.
