Hello Jagex,

Could u do an massive name cleanup for banned accounts?

Hi there
Q4x


Jagex don't have any current plans to do another inactive name cleanup.
JMods have said this repeatedly this year.

The main issue with the "very rare names" is they get removed from the game due to name selling (RWT). Names removed due to name selling will NEVER be released again.

The other major issue with a possible inactive name release is the automated name sniper programs. These programs are completely dominating name swap attempts at this time.

Jagex would need to code some sort of a workaround to stop a name sniper program from being able to work in a name release and the work involved in doing that is far in excess of any benefit gained.

My suggestion to Jagex/JMods would be to, permanent ban these names so these abusive characters won't be introduced in RuneScape ever again. We do not need to re-live these moments anymore.
Be creative and come up with a name yourself as there are loads of combinations possible.

Issue at hand is that name snipers are constantly out to steal names from players, adding to black markets and RWT. I believe the best way to give players an opportunity at "rare" names is have a name trading system introduced by jagex to combat this. This would stop name snipers and cut off black markets. Player A would be able to trade Player B his RSN without any middle men.

To answer your question Jagex has not introduced any plans of new name releases. If they plan on this in the future I would watch on the forums. Maybe try the suggestion forums aswell.

Exclusive/Rare names are a result of a combination of an unique name developed by a player who gives that name a purpose in RuneScape.
Most well known rare names are there because players behind these characters went above and beyond within The RuneScape Community to give that character name a true valuable meaning.


Players who are banned/permanent banned lack these qualities and only harvest these names for they are known so they can be abused in extreme manner to mislead/deceive The RuneScape Community.

you mentioned the middleman, who's this middleman exactly? because last time i checked player mods are too afraid to be involved in such situations. so if you're saying this middleman is a random player then it is a confirmed 100% TRUST TRADE.
