The new PvP blog looks great and all but what about deleting the ditch? Why was this not addressed or hotfixed in just like F2P TB? Don't solely bash risky drop tables and not the risk-free ones then wonder why the JGods shut your opinions out when analyzing why PvP polls never pass.

Isn't this kind of a content suggestion?

I'm from way back when there was no ditch and my life would be fine without it. I think it helps protect the new players from being lured, same as some other content warnings like digging at the moles in Falador.
Why do you want the ditch deleted?
A very special snowflake.

People still get lured. Just like how they took away free trade and people still got scammed. It unfortunately wont help nubnubs not be nubnubs

I'd raise the counter-claim that it does help a bit. But I agree, people will get lured regardless. It's no skin off my back if it's removed. I'd like to know why it SHOULD be removed though. What is there to gain from removing it?
Let's even assume that it has no effect at all except clearly marking "this is where the wilderness starts" - why should it be removed?

It's hideous, ruined risk for reward with the Monastery which initially required you to go through lvl 3 wilderness for the shortcut, and doesn't protect anyone.
L2PK nubnubs. Can't do that? L2escape nubnubs. Can't do that either? L2not enter the wilderness nubnubs.

Add a toggleable warning sign.

Make the ditch toggleable. If you go to some NPC in Lumbridge and pay them 50k gp they can go dig up the ditch for you or add it back again some time afterwards. Keeps it there for people new enough for it to be needed, removes it for people who don't like it.

I like the idea of making it a toggle and removing the ditch if toggled off. Whether to charge money for it or not, I don't know. Seems like a weird money sink to me. A simple toggle (NPC) would be plenty.
I'd prefer the old days where it was a seamless transition as well. It'd be cool to see it return to that.

It'd make sense that an NPC would want payment for digging up such a big ditch. Maybe they just lend the player equipment to do it themselves without any charge
