This page will serve to document all created and discussed policies about the project, including the live server. These can include policies developers have to follow, as well as policies staff have about the project and the game that must be maintained, including by the owners of the project.
The offered XP rates are permanently locked to 1.0, 2.5, 5.0 and x10 ( For Permadeaths only) Under no circumstances are we to change, add, subtract, replace, substitute or modify these options. These are 100% completely final. The consequences of these XP rates are to be dealt with in their own right, and not be used as an excuse to add, substitute or remove any of the present options.
Excluding the removal of 10x and 20x, under no circumstance should a player's xp rate be modified or tampered with beyond the programmed-in limitations.
Rollbacks are only to be accepted in the context of a punishment for some form of bug exploitation, or to remedy an issue produced by a bug. Authentic bugs do not count for either of these.
Username changes are allowed provided that the username a player wishes to change to is currently unused. If a player desires a username change, they should submit a request (preferably in the support section of the forums, but DMing ryannathans on Discord is also an option) in the following format:
|Old Username||New Username||Proof of Account Ownership|
Where proof of account ownership can include a timestamped screenshot of that user logged into the game.
We here at the 2009scape team don't believe it's fair for players to horde up a bunch of unique usernames for themselves and never use them. Because of this, a user can request that we check on and/or free up a taken username. A username will be freed provided that it meets the following criteria:
The request to investigate and potentially free a taken username should be posted preferably in the support section of the forums, but DMing ryannathans on Discord is also an option.
|IGN||Proof of Account Ownership|
Where proof of account ownership can be one or more of:
If you can not provide any of these, we can not reset your password.
Developers are expected to make all changes in their own forks/branches and create a pull request to the main repository with their contributions. If you do not know what these are or how to do them, look at the gitlab documentation.
Developers are expected to have their forks/branches fully up to date before submitting pull requests in order to avoid merge conflicts.
bot scripts are no longer supported in live game.
Generally, custom content should be avoided, but we reserve the right to consider custom content provided it matches the following criteria:
RFCs are a great way for the playerbase to make their opinion on something or a suggestion heard! As a community project, we believe player feedback is important, so RFCs allow you to highlight, debate, and weigh in on criticisms, suggestions, etc! The proper way to do this is to create an issue on Gitlab tagged with the Request For Comments label, and go into detail explaining your opinions on a subject.
