A shared "Clan Chest."

The chest would appear in every bank, much like a voting booth, and it would essentially be a shared bank among your friends. For security's sake, imagine a clan chat, but rather than ranking a player up you would be allowing them access to depositing/withdrawing from the chest.
...


It seems like what you are asking for is simply more bank space.. albeit shared, it's still just more bank space..

How would this be limited to clan use? If it could be limited to only being used by clans, why should it be.. and what size of clans could use it?

There seems to be a fair few solo players in old school these days and screwing them over by offering more bank space to only clans.. or clans of certain sizes.. doesn't sound like a supportable idea, IMO.


"Clan Chest" Is just a name.
The chest is accessible to anyone you give permission to, meaning smaller groups of friends can benefit just as much as a large scale clan. Honestly I might need to change the name at this point, as I've had like 6 people now bring up similar cases against this suggestion.

As for extra bank space, that isn't my intention. Again my sole intention with this suggestion is to create a more communal aspect to playing Runescape, especially with friends. If that's a concern make it so default bank spaces have to be sacrificed in order to utilize a "Clan Chest."

Perpl, I didn't get stuck on the name.. honestly.. and I am in no way opposed to additional bank space (for everyone).

I simply asked why, given it is nothing more than additional bank space, why should it be limited to clans and if it is limited to clans, what size clans?

I wasn't suggesting it's a bad or unsupportable idea.. I did say that screwing over the solo players is not a supportable idea. So I think that in order for it to be supportable, it would need to be available to all players and not just clans (or groups of a certain size).

I think it holds potential.. for instance say in a small group of people (friends, or call it a small clan if you want) you allow each person access to a certain tab within.. but everyone can see what's in each tab.. just not take from or add to each tab (that would be reserved for whomever you gave permissions). Something like that could easily be a motivator for even small groups of peeps to have competitions amongst themselves.. like who can get the most mage logs in 'x' amount of time.. or who can place 5k shark in the chest first.. and so on.

But honestly, it wasn't the name I had any issue with.. I was simply questioning if solo players would be excluded from something as simple as additional bank space. =)

I'll support this if and only if the clan chest can only be accessed inside of the wilderness. Risk for reward as decreed by Lord Gower on the mission statement. Quit bitching about the problems you created by spite voting.

I see what you're saying, and in no way do I want to limit this to just clans, let alone exclude solo players.

I mostly named this the "Clan Chest" based on how Clan Chats work. Even if you do not have a clan, you can open a Clan Chat attached to your Runescape account. You can access your own Clan Chat even without other players ever using it, and you can enter and leave it at any time.

I want the Clan Chest to function similarly. You can open up a Chest attached to your name, even if no one else has been given access to it yet, meaning solo players can utilize this update, too. Just like how ranks are given to specific players in a Chat, ranks/access can be given to specific players in a Chest. If someone desires to play solo, they simply don't have to give anyone else access to the Chest.

I like your suggestion of making everything visible by default, even if someone doesn't have access to a specific tab! A private tab/bank option should definitely be included alongside it as well.


This does bring up a valid concern when looking at specific kinds of Iron Man accounts, though, as this truly could just be seen as an extra bank/extra bank spaces.

If it truly would be a concern on iron accounts.. and because playing an iron is supposed to be doing everything yourself.. I would see nothing wrong if jagex excluded iron accounts from such an update.. but, who knows, maybe they could find a way that irons could share in self imposed 'competitions' like what your idea could offer to other groups of players?

Anyway, as long as you aren't wanting to restrict it to clans only, and ordinary (or even solo) players would still be able to use it.. I like the idea and support it! =)

Thanks! Here's hoping it'll be something everyone can enjoy one day.

I don't think that quite applies to suggested content like this.
My suggestion boils down to being a QoL update for trading friends.

By this logic all trading or access to your personal bank should be limited to the wilderness.

How about a clan chest where the items are automatically re-deposited after a length of time? So people borrow rather than 'take' items from the chest. more like the lending system in rs3.

Hi, I love this idea!

Here's an easy way to get rid of scamming:

Collateral!
Unless you're a certain rank or have permission on the clan chest you have to deposit items of equalish value in order to take something out!

That way players can't just take everything out and it should reduce scamming.
This is already a concept we have when lending friends items and is a way to stop yourself from having to make a bunch of ge transactions.

I'd also support putting in a collateral tab which players put their collateral into and can retrieve when they return the item they borrowed.
Limits set by clan admins of course.

This would also give more diversity to the items inside the chest if they're constantly changing around.

Just my thoughts. :)
