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?

It's a big fat no from me as well.

Back in the days when we used to get mass spam attacks from throwaway accounts it was a different matter.

The forums need more active participants, not less.

I'm not sure of why Beast would want this to be so.

I'm not entirely against it since the influx of badass (titter) OSRS twats stinking up RS3 General forum on throwaway alts making 'legit' threads which are so VERY obviously merely RS3 bashing is vaguely irritating (more so since FMods do bugger all about it making the forums an even shittier place than they already are) ... however ....

.... those morons aside, what would be the real advantages? If there were some, I might support it.

Not that it will ever happen. Nothing ever does.

Wouldn't be any advantages tbh. The kinds of trolls you are talking about there are the kinds of people who would pay for membership for 10+ alts just to spam the forums. Making the forums P2P only wouldn't stop them, all it would do is drive away the actual contributing members of the forums.

Another "no" from me. F2P can and do offer different perspectives.

If there was an issue with how the account was behaving, the Forum Moderator team and the Forum Help thread will help get things back on track.
