Read again buddy, I asked what was the point of doing it, as in what's the purpose. You only said you do it just because. If you really wanted to answer my question, you would've said there was no purpose other than "I feel like it


Now you get it.

Not everything will make sense to you as its not supposed to.

You play how you want to and ill do the same.

Just because you see no reason behind this doesnt mean it should happen.

Yes, after all the unnecessary round-a-bout conversation I finally understand that you had nothing to say at all.

Agreed.

If you want to know someones stats bad enough, use the one thing that cant be hidden.

Highscores.

So you're saying hiding profile is pointless since you can still access those information?

Only thing that annoys me with private profiles is you can't click back on the browser, cause it insta loops. You have to spam click it fast to get out of there, or click the runescape logo on the bottom right of the profile page.

I've known people stalked and their stalkers hop into bosses to annoy the player. They figure out which bosses they usually go to via the adventures log. Think people also stalk via clan pages, which shows the world they are on even if they aren't added.

I feel like it should just apply to hiding the adventures log since you can easily find the persons xp and stats off hiscores.

No, as hiding it might not affect the ability to check your skills, but it does hide what you've been up to lately and how active you are as a player for those that wish to creep :P

If it was jagex wouldnt have added it to begin with.

So just because you see no reason for it/dont like it doesnt mean ppl shouldnt be allowed to use it.

This post fit here perfectly:

Original message details are unavailable.


To protect themselves from being judged by other people. It's a perfectly valid use for it. There's people out there that just examine people for the sake of laughing at them and can go as far as actually insulting them directly. This obviously annoys people so rather than be bugged by people, they hide this information.

It doesn't just hide your stats, it hides your gear. People love checking what gear people are using and unfortunately love to make a mockery out of them if they're using gear they don't agree with. You can't exactly find out what gear they're wearing if their examine is set to private. People that don't want to be judged are thus protected.

As for levels, sure, you can just go up and look up their stats. But as you said, it's more convenient to do it via examine. By making it private, they inconvenience you and force you to go through the effort of actually going to the website, typing their name and finding that information manually. It can discourage people and does. People will likely just growl in frustration and move on to another player to examine, one that hasn't set theirs to private.

Well, I can't add anything to the conversation if you still haven't answered my 1st question...

Jagex didn't rollback the partyhat dupes even though it had a permanent effect on the economy. So you can't use Jagex as a reason for something.

Also, I never once implied nor explicitly said that people are not allowed to hide their profile??? All I'm asking is what is the point of doing so?

You can keep on dodging my question by completely misrepresenting them. I'm done here.

But... Myself and others have already answered it and he used our responses as an answer...

So he did answer your question as to what's the point of setting it to private.

Nah you just cbb to accept that others play the game differently than you and want ppl to play the same.

You keep ignoring that jagex gave ppl this free will of doing this so you have no right to question it.

Dont like the reasoning tough shits, its mine so either accept it and move on or dont and move on.
