Yes, you read that right. Make it so F2Pers can only read the Forums and not post on it.

Why? Simple:

It's more trouble than what it's worth.

"But Skull- What if my main got hijacked and have to post on a F2P alt?"

Support Ticket. Plus, given how stupidly rare it is for an account to get hijacked (Based on stats given by Jagex's Analytics Team (Or was it Customer Support...? I don't remember), less than 1% of all bot appeals were legitimate hijacks and not making things up) and all of the security features that can be practiced to protect your account, I feel like you kinda...had that one coming.

"But Skull- What if my main got muted/banned and need to post on a F2P alt?"

Well then, that's even worse. You've shown to be a detriment to the community and therefore should not be a part of discussion.

"But Skull- what if I can't afford members?"

If you're telling me you can't make 2m/day to maintain membership via Bonds (You can literally make that in 1 hour at Nihil easy), then I'm sorry- there's something wrong going on there.

"But Skull- I haven't done anything wrong!"

Yea, and? Item Rollbacks had to stop because people were mass abusing it, filing fraudulent reports in the hopes of getting free items. Simply because you personally did not do anything wrong does not justify not acting on something that is abused.

Anywho, I'll turn it to you guys- what are your thoughts?

You already have yours private placxe elsewhere where nobody is able to bother you unnecessary.


What does that have to do with anything?

I'm genuinely curious.

No, support.


My utmost thanks for supporting this, but I must inquire about what you are declaring "no" to.

Or is it because you dislike a few, specific forumers and wish for them not to be able to use the forums any longer?


If I made this thread on the basis of disliking certain people, the thread may as well be titled "Remove the Forums", because I dislike about 95% of the people who use the Forums.

Also, the sheer fact you're even asking those questions just tells me you didn't read past "more trouble than what it's worth".

I'll also be completely honest here: I do not give a flyin' damn about your experience as a Forum Moderator. Your experience is different from Tuffty's, whose experience is different from Toxicity's, whose experience is...you get the point. To say that is a platitude at best.

I suggest you re-read the OP and find the rationale behind why I think F2P needs their Forum access removed. If you're struggling, I'll give you a hint: IT's right before I say "I'll turn this to you guys:"

Again, this is a case of the actions of a select few dictating the fate of the many.


And where's the issue with that?

That's kinda how...rules are set in place, for instance- a few people abuse something, and then something is set in place to prevent said abuse in the future. I believe that is one of many definitions of "rule".

Following the logic, that would imply you are against rules, which is...interesting...considering your position.

I don't see this happening. The forums are for both free players and member to use.


Why not at least raise the req?

To at least 1k?

I can live with a raise, not sure if it will help much though.


I propose instead of a total level cap, I say we have an EXP cap: 200M EXP across all F2P skills.

Too high.


Ehh...That's about level 98 in all F2P skills. Not 200M across all skills like 200M Mining, Smithing, etc.
