I have some questions and comments to make regarding the Well of Goodwill.

I was looking forward to double experience weekend to participate in the charity event. Based on all the reading I had done about past events I just assumed it would be again on double experience weekend. I was going to donate. When I had returned to Runescape from such a long break, I heard about the charity well and found it to be an awesome idea.

I think they should take it a step further and make more items released during the well of goodwill events. Cosmetics of shirts, hats, scarves, capes, etc. with the logos or something to do with the charity on them as keepsakes at different tiers of giving.This would promote giving to the charity. This however would also cost Jagex more unless they set a cap. Either way just the return of the well of goodwill in general would be great. The idea that the items and coins that we gain by playing this game can be turned into actual money that can help someone is wonderful.

Is the next Well of Goodwill event coming soon?

Will it only ever be on double experience weekends?

Are there any plans on taking the well out completely?

Can it be expanded into other types of charity's such as breast cancer awareness, children's research, starvation, etc? We could vote on the charity to get it as always but maybe expand to other categories?

Does Jagex read these?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Please post your thoughts, comments, additional questions, etc. I would like to see what everyone else thinks.

"No." The Well of Goodwill generally (see: 3 out of 5 times) only opens during the February DXP weekend although sometimes opens during the November one.

Generally speaking, yeah. We get promotions for various charities every now and then that don't involve the Well.

Doubtful.

It's all really up to Jagex.

"Yes."

Would be much more inclined to donate if the charity happened to be a more well-known one, especially supporting something like cancer research. Not sure how I'd feel donating to a charity that provides gaming equipment for disabled people, for example, since there isn't much of a correlation between disability and financial status. Not to mention I don't exactly have top notch gaming equipment, and a 6.8 mbps internet connection to boot so it'd be rather hypocritical of me to be donating to charity for that cause.

I don't know what charities they've done in the past, but they should definately not do the big name ones because some ridiculous amount like 70-80%+ of their proceeds go directly into administrative costs (ie paying charity ceo's). They should go out of their way to promote good charities that aren't profiteering.

well if you want the well to return you should sign the bankbidding petition.
The obvious reason why we didn't have the well was because they had the ridiculous idea for bankbidding which resulted in no well
