Banned Account Reinstatement

If Jagex bans any account as a result of your breach of the Rules of RuneScape and you have exhausted the Offence Appeals Process, Jagex may, in its absolute discretion, give you an opportunity to make a fixed payment to reinstate the account.

Any membership credit that is associated with an account cannot be used to pay for such reinstatement. Please note that throughout the period during which the account was banned, any membership credit will continue to expire.

Jagex is not obliged to reinstate any accounts. You are not obliged to exercise the option to reinstate your account. If you are offered the opportunity, it is entirely up to you whether you make any such payment to reinstate an account.

Any gains or advantages that Jagex considers were made as a result of using macros shall be removed from your account. You accept that the account will be returned to you, adjusted by Jagex to take account of the cheating offence, and no discussion will be entered into regarding the status of a returned account.

On February 2nd 2011 the new "Bans and Mutes" page went up on Knowledge Base.
http://www.runescape.../bans_and_mutes

On February 3rd 2011 it was first officially discussed by Mod Mark H.
Quick find code: 250-251-685-62305961

The primary player discussion is found here:
Quick find code: 129-130-874-62301629

Several JMods have answered questions posted by Taylor Swift and the rest of the RuneScape community in this thread.

It's been announced to all major fansites. Sorry I hesitated to make the discussion here. I figured by now somebody would have felt this an important matter -- perhaps not great at FT and Wild restored.. but come on. :D

And not every is too please to hear the news. As posted by 22nd top player Athymy.

What are your thoughts, opinions, suggestions or stance on the matter? Please no hate posts toward any groups since everyone makes mistakes at life just as at Runescape. And people DO change. :(

More news shall be posted to this topic once it is revealed by Jagex.

How Much Does Unban Cost?

The very first Ban Account Reinstatement finally took place on February 11th 2011 same day Mod Mark H made the forum thread.

The price to buy back a banned account is $22.50 USD. This price is determined through "negative credit" that you have to pay back to Jagex before gaining access to F2P. Then if you wish you may buy more credit to earn days for P2P access.

The unbans have since February 17th 2011 been taken over by Mod SteveW. Post all further appeals his way if your Final Chance Appeal has been denied.

imo, that guy in the pic is a total idiot.


i dont mind that jagex will have people pay for unbans, infact, if people really want the accounts back, they will pay, and it may end up lowering the cost of membership.

Perm bans shouldn't exist.

In general there are 2 types of people who get banned for botting:
1) A hardcore botter who when one account is banned they will make another, the ban does not stop them at all.
2) A geniune player that made a stupid mistake and got banned for botting who would quickly learn their lesson and regret ever botting.

Very True and it will eventually lead to the decrease in membership hopefully(but very Unlikely) but if someone is stupid enough to bot theyre trading it off to another account which they cant track (or what I can tell at least) and if some one tries it out they'll regret it like above said.

Gawd-darned copycats. Just when we eliminate permabans, Jagex proceeds to do the same.

Sounds like Jagex is selling out to me.

If you are breaking the rules money shouldn't get you off scot free.

QFC: 250-251-3-62411000

Mod SteveW is leading the discussion accepting all users wishing to post for unbans. This "fee" has yet to be shown on any YouTube videos. But February 17th 2011 marks the first ever BAR (Banned Account Reinstatement).

Arianna: Yeah. Join the club.

I'm still ticked they didn't give me credit for inventing that name February 7th 2011 on my post to Taylor Swift's thread where all of the JMods were answering questions and stuff. I invented the term "BAR" on February 7th 2011. Here comes Mod SteveW posting my abbreviation on his own thread February 17th. 10 days after mine.

Plus the way they copy much of the content from World of Warcraft to implement in Runescape. Or the way it took us players under Rule 11 about 6 years to finally get the rule removed.

I was banned for 3 years because of that rule alone. Got Kire667 unbanned in 2009, same year they turned right around and formed 3 channels on YouTube. The website I got perm banned for mentioning to friends. In old RS they called that a "scam website".

Zar0s: Do you realize they raise the price 2 or 3 times since 2003? It NEVER lowered once even though they've gone from nobody to the #1 RPG in the world. Now they make millions every year. They don't need the money from players botting every day and buying their way into Runescape. If anything they should already be taking care of this from the start -- rather than bringing back RWT so all the bots would return.

Why don't I hear World of Warcraft charging for appeals? Real companies have real employees. And they actually do the job we pay them to do in the first place. But no.. not Jagex.

That is one of the most sweeping and ignorant statements I've ever heard.  :D

Light summed it up perfectly for me a few posts below the OP.
At the end of the day Jagex stated anyone who gets unbanned will not profit; ie - if they bot, they lose the levels and the stuff they gained from botting.

Why the hell not?
The money gained from that could not only be put elsewhere to improve the game, and could also reduce the ratio of rulebreakers to genuine players from people being given the second chance and using it admirably.


EDIT:

Also a stupid, sweeping statement.
They don't "copy" content from WOW, there's that vast a variety of MMOs these days that the majority of content can be linked to other MMOs if you're looking hard enough.
That just makes you sound like a mad fanboy. :(

I never knew jagex removed the botted xp rather than the account, that's is ridiculous! Imo anyone who bots should be permanently ip banned.

A conspiracy, no?



Anyways, this is a great step forward for JaGex and its players. Like I always credit JaGex with, is their customer service (not including emails/messaging). This is a good idea in that, you break the rules, you pay the price. Now banning on RuneScape is just like getting a speeding ticket irl.




Edit: Hold on... I thought only DM/Mod/Admin could only make posts in this sub-forum. :D

Can someone reformat the original post. My OCD is having a fit.

I can understand why they would do this, but I don't really see all the attraction in actually employing it.

Oh well, let JaGeX do whatever they do...

I'm against the death penalty, electronic or not. :(

I guess a mod moved the thread into the RSA forum, by the way.

Its been proven apparently, that to unban your account, you need to pay $22.50, you can use any of the Runescape membership payment options to pay the $22.50, and all the cash/valuable items in your bank drops to 0, and all your skills' exp is divided by 4.3, so somebody with 43 million exp in a skill would have that skill exp go down to 10 million exp.
here is a vid explaining it:

Thanks for the early insight. I'm going around everywhere spreading word that if you want to bot it only costs $22.50 to buy your way back into the game.

Hell. Finally Nightmarerh took my advice and posted a vid about BAR.

How Much Does Unban Cost?

The very first Ban Account Reinstatement finally took place on February 11th 2011 same day Mod Mark H made the forum thread.

The price to buy back a banned account is $22.50 USD. This price is determined through "negative credit" that you have to pay back to Jagex before gaining access to F2P. Then if you wish you may buy more credit to earn days for P2P access.

The unbans have since February 17th 2011 been taken over by Mod SteveW. Post all further appeals his way if your Final Chance Appeal has been denied.
