I have 8.1 black marks on my account. The problem is, none of them were even logical, never mind the fact they weren't true.
Let me give an example:
I was talking to someone. I asked what country he lived in, and he responded: Russia, then reported me. Mmkay, yes, I'm going to search through the largest country in the world and find him and stalk him. Very logical. I would probably die from old age before I found him. My appeal was denied.
So my question is: Is Jagex trying to kill their game and company on purpose? They have been making the crappiest updates and banning everyone they get a report on. Their average number of players has been cut from 300,000 to 160,000. way to go Jagex, you've effectively cut your population in half. That's a loss of... oh... somewhere around... 5 million dollars a month?
Aka 60 million a year!
Edit: For those of you that wish to disprove my math, My calculation is this:
Jagex stated they have 1,000,000 member accounts. Assuming half quit, 500,000x5 dollars a month is 2.5 million dollars. That leaves us with the approximately 5 million non-member accounts. assuming they make 50¢ per player, from ad revenue, that's another 2.5 million dollars a month. Though the price of members is stable, this works. But the ad revenue is based on the number of clicks on an ad and is also limited to a certain IP to prevent click bombing to gain more revenue. In addition, there's an unknown amount of stable pay to Jagex for the people that don't click the ad, but the ad still is viewed, so they are paid for just that.
This makes ad revenue more unstable, so my calculation could be very far off in this case. Then again, maybe not.
If you're going to ban every player that appeals, why allow them to appeal at all?
