Hi all,

As most people are aware, the yearly raffle is now out. In this raffle, you may win items such as deathtouch darts which can be used to earn some massive gp from bosses, as well as winning highly sought after exclusive items such as the Golden Warpriest or Golden Barrows armour, as well as golden chaotic items.

There however has been one well known problem with this raffle since the creation of the raffle, and that is raffle rigging. People can make thousands of accounts with the sole intention of rigging the raffle to dilute the reward pool. They will subsequently destroy the items or do disruptive things with them (I.E. placing hundreds of deposit boxes on the ground so players cannot walk).

Last year, Jagex made a very vague statement that they have done something to lessen this issue. However we were not given an explanation, and this year it has been made easier to abuse with the ability to use Bonds to get tickets without logging in daily.

To preserve the integrity of the game, we must swiftly act and prepare for everything to ensure the raffle goes out with no problems. I propose that if someone attempts to rig the raffle, that action such as a permanent ban be taken against all accounts involved in this attempt.

Without this guarantee, we cannot guarantee that raffle rigging will not occur. In the past this type of action has been swept under the rug, much to the dismay of players trying to win an item fairly.

To keep everything on topic, please don’t name any individuals that may do this. We are here to look at a solution, not name and shame!

Thank you.

Are you gonna basically repost this daily? If you want raffle rigging to stop, stop giving it attention. You give it an unbelievable amount of attention, that doesn't help against raffle tigging at all. Just drop it already.

Shedding a light on an issue in itself doesnt fix an issue. I understand that, but it is the necessary first step to acknowledging an issue so it can later be resolved.

I am mentioning an issue the public generally want to see resolved, and try to shine a light on it because mroe steps need to be taken to fix it

To solve the portable problem, only allow one portable per 5x5 square.


Thats a good idea for portable banks, although adding this rule to all portable items could cause another issue.

Players can go on portable worlds and troll others by adding portable skilling things a few tiles away from the bank. It may be easier to just limit peoples access to it on the raffle since there is a strong correlation between portable trolls & raffle riggers

Try just not bringing it up so that the reason to rig it ends. People rig for attention, you're giving the people you're against, what they want. Stop posting these and your problem may solve itself.
