I would encourage the mods or developers to spend some time in the f2p worlds and attempt to take the wine of Zamorak whilst competing with bots... it's infuriating and above all tedious. I can't compete with a machine / algorithm and especially one that's a lower level and stands in the way so I have to telekenectically grab them instead... Guess what? 'Nothing Interesting Happens'. Experience these problems for yourself and find a fix rather than forcing people into a corner of no opportunities and boring repetitive holes.

I'd report them more often but they don't speak... therefore I can't. Also, you cut one head off, another appears, so instead a team of people (with power i.e mods or admins etc) going around would be ideal.

Let's turn Profit > Player's enjoyment. the other way around. If you're not going to do anything about the problem then instead you are encouraging it.

Please if you care about this issue bump in some way or leave a comment letting them know that you want something done.

You can examine a player and hit the red flag button to report someone.
There's not much to do about these bots. If Jagex would remove them, they will find something else to bot on.

not every player you happen across that doesn't speak is a bot, some people actually have their chat set to friends, or off, which means they wont see your question, nor answer it, so automatically assuming they are bots and reporting them as such "because they don't speak" is false reporting, and that's wrong
your trying to get some innocent person with their chat off banned...

there are bots, and you can report as others here have stated using the examine option, but do actually look at what someone does, and how they do it, there are telling signs of when one is a bot, and when one is human

I think that one in a million is human. It's just disgusting how bots screw up whole OSRS. For example I try to mine iron, but those bots have such high mining levels that they're ALWAYS first in gathering the ores. I can't mine iron anymore, because every world has the same issue. All bots are the same and it makes me want to quit Runescape. I don't know, but I think that a whole lot of players are on my side.

Like Runescape does a great job in Safety and Security with the So-called "Mini-Game" Stronghold of Security in Barbarian village, they should also put a lot of effort in "Make Runescape Human Again!"

Precautions have to be made otherwise Runescape will lose a whole lot of human players and only the bots will stay around. I guess that's called: "Dig your own grave"

I hate to downplay your frustrations, but the number of bots nowadays is nothing compared to 5-6 years ago, where many areas in the game were infested with bots to the point where legitimate players had no chance.

When it comes to bots, all you can really do is report them and move on. Nothing can be done about them on the forums.

Why is everyone using the argument that there are less? Yes they've done a brilliant job but are they still irritating for actual players? Yes. The problem is people who put in time become overlooked because someone could just run multiple bots and make 10x their profit by doing nothing.

All i'm suggesting is they log who has repeat actions of being incredibly precise with their movement.

Alternatively install a team of mods who monitor problem areas and look at the repeat actions i.e. bots who just run to the exact location repeatedly even if they're not being targeted.

I don't feel these are unreasonable demands, I get that Jagex have bigger fish to fry but it is affected my enjoyment of the game and i'm sure the enjoyment of many others.

If you don't persecute those responsible the frustration leads to more people doing it.

Okay, but when they don't respond and have a very precise schedule that clearly indicates that they're non human, that's when I would report them. I'm not some trigger happy goon, rather then come up with opposing arguments why not admit that it is a problem and something should be done?
