You have to remember that a lot of players are quite young at the point in their lives where they're about to start maturing. I started playing when I was something like 11 or 12?


And your case is statistically rare and therefore not worth much, if any, consideration.

It's something ridiculous like 1%, if that, of the playerbase is less than age 13 with well over 2/3 being 18+. Trying to cater to the below 13 crowd is not only quixotic, it's also completely missing the mark with respect to demographic. Even then, if people under the age of 18 are online, they implicitly signed (as stated in Jagex's T and C) that they were given permission by their parents to be on here. Therefore, it is entirely the parent's responsibility in what their children are accessing on the Internet- not Jagex. Jagex's only burden is keeping people who violate the Terms out.

No, it does not. Even gave evidence to the claim that 'we have to watch for da little ones D:" is a load of horsecrap.

Even then, as I said in another thread, your IQ would have to be so damn low to not be able to compare links and comprehend internet safety that that is the LAST thing ANYONE should be worrying about due to how stupidly rare it is and how severe such a low IQ is.

Where exactly are the statistics for the player base coming from?
1% are 13 or below? lol?

Graph here shows that 91% of the Runescape community is at least 16 years of age with 2/3 being at least 19 years old


That same graph also shows that 1% of the playerbase is at most 13 years old.

Seems like i seem to meet a large portion of the 9% in game then.

I'm not going to disregard the statistic since it's given by a J Mod and you have a great reliance on it for your argument. However sometimes statistics are misleading and are questionable. Blindly following them isn't always a smart idea.

Mate, I can tell you right now the data is about as accurate as you can get.

I can also tell you that I already know data can be misleading at times (I have a degree in Mathematics).
