That seems like an excessively high number of quest points. It would definitely work to deter new players from joining the forums, that's for sure.

I agree. This initiative seems to be counter-intuitive, considering you already need to either be a member or have a 350 total level.

Not only that, but it isn't possible for a F2P player to earn 100 quest points without having membership at some point - the max they can have is 67 in RS3, and 42 in OSRS (remember, whichever requirement is in place can be achieved in either game as far as I'm aware).

Additionally, there are some players who absolutely despise quests and only do them if there is some sort of need for them to do them. It doesn't seem right to prevent someone from joining the forums simply because they choose not to do a certain activity ingame.

And, if the requirement were to be membership OR quest points, I don't think it would change anything anyway - there are some players who are happy to put membership on an account strictly for forum access.

I don't think quest points is suitable for determining who can use the forums or not, so I can't support this, sorry.

Honestly, adding more requirements to use the Forums isn't ideal. As it is, the Forums are pretty much near death, compared to how they were many years ago. We'd want to attract new users, not shoo them away. It's unfair to add this condition in order to use the Forums.

A quest point requirement would drive away more legitimate players than it does to hinder trolls and alts.

To curb the use of alts, I would prefer that the 350 total level requirement be applied to member accounts as well.

This makes the most sense tbh.

If you're going to lock out new free players, should do the same to members.
Don't forget – RuneScape members get TWO free spins a day instead of the usual one!
