Look at the difference in levels though.
Just Rave is 1706 total/110m xp while Illomphis is 83 total/50k xp

... and thus we have requirements on voting.

I believe that players' views can change over time, but some of the features of a GE were really pretty unpopular back in May when we offered a trading system. Offline trading, for example, failed pretty dismally. The ability to trade with someone who'd been offline beyond 6+ hours scored 48%.

I reckon the question about trading through the post would have crept over the 75% threshold if we asked it again now.

As for whether 75% are now in favour of a full GE, that's less sure. We've made it clear in the newspost that we're willing to consider polling such a thing.

Just know that if the GE is added again that I'm canceling my membership again, just like I did back then.

Give us the GE, we want it now.

I created this account less than 24 hours ago specifically to skill. I first started playing runescape back in 2005. That's the game I remember. The Rubber Chicken was the first holiday item I ever got. I stopped playing Runescape years ago, so all of my accounts were deleted off of Jagex's servers. So yeah, I may only have "50k xp", but I still know the negative effects the Grand Exchange can add to the game.

Why should quests be needlessly inconvenient? A lack of automatic trading is a needless inconvenience, and the only reason we don't have it is because some players cling to an archaic notion that inconvenient game mechanics should be ubiquitous in OSRS.


This so much lol.

There are no sets which i feel like makes zybez stand out. Like armadyl set (helm + legs + skirt) Also something left out as well is services, such as dragonfire smithing. Also, Should make it to where you have a "buying" and "selling" area. I really like how I can post an offer, go do some magic then have someone pm me with the items I want.

Could it be fixed? It's quite annoying, feels like your computer has froze...

I assume it is a one time thing? The data would be stored in your cache afterwards I think.

Should be a one-time thing, yes.

If we were doing vast updates with tons of beautiful GFX everywhere like RS3 does, you'd experience this every week :)

Orion isn't loading the client it fails everytime, how can i fix this?

Eh, we can't help you with that software. Could be they need to update their side of things to handle the new game update.

THIS IS NOT COOL. ITS NO LONGER OLD SCHOOL. ONE STEP CLOSER TO THAT HORRABLE GAME RS3. PEOPLE STARTED PLAYING OLD SCHOOL BECAUSE THEY LOVE THE SIMPLE RUNESCAPE.

WHY WOULD YOU PEOPLE WANT ANOTHER GRAND EXCHANGE.??

MAKE A POLL TO VOTE ON REMOVING THE TRADING POST.

IDEA: ' Swapping Booths'
I know it is long but please read
Similar to the trading post could you poll a 'Swapping Booth' in Lumby as thats where it usually takes place.
This would be used to swap money through oldschool runescape and RS3 and vice versa.
How it would work is that you put a specific amount of gold in (maybe only increments of 100k) and you input a figure that is the only figure you would accept for the amount of money you put in.
You would not be able to take out any money you put before an hour of it being in the booth (to minimise bug abuses of people pulling it out mid swap for example).
You could have an average figure of usual trades to give people an idea of current rates however this might be abused by clans, so maybe avoid this).
Example.
I have 1m oldschool gp, i go to the booth and put the 1m gp into the booth and say i will only accept 8m RS3 (example of current rate). I cannot take this money out for an hour even if i change my mind. It will sit there untill someone on RS3 Accepts at the other end but inserting 8m RS3 and saying I will only accept 1m 07 GP.

What is the point?
Many people are forced to swap money between the games if they choose to play the other or like using bonds to pay for membership (lots of other reasons). This minimises the use of third party clans (Not even sure i'm using that phrase correctly) Many of which manipulate the market and scam.
No money will be entering the game because it is between players and not created.

Whoever reads this please acknowledge you have read this even if you think its a terrible idea.

Thank you for reading long post.
I would input picture of potato if i was allowed.
