Does this get terminated if the registered account goes f2p? often i go f2p since i buy bonds and have periods where i dont play rs for a week..so stay f2p till i renew it/return.

hopefully this will cut down to on the merch bots that spam here..they annoy me lol. :P great idea. :))

Once your account is linked, it is linked forever. Unless you or a staff remember removes it.


Thank you for info, i figured so but wanted to be 100% sure. :))

Umm.. I'm actually banned on the Official RS forums, is there another way that i can verifiy?

Arrange to contact me or another staff member in-game (a PM will suffice), just to prove it is your account. When that gets conveyed to me I can take care of it manually.

Awesome, I have you added now on the game. I'll send you a PM.

Great idea. Tired of all the fake offers, and others trying to crash the item prices. That being said, hopefully we don't lose too many people who can't be bother to make an account/register.

This won't do the price guide any good. Expect to see a massive reduction in the amount of people using it, disadvantaging both validated users and those who refuse to validate, leading to the OSRS community pushing for a similar feature to be added to the official RS website and ultimately phasing this out entirely. Unless of course that was your intention.

You got us, our entire motivation for doing this was so we wouldn't have to deal with users anymore. They're such a hassle!

In all seriousness, we realize that's a risk and that's why we're giving so much warning. We will take a hit in activity, yes, but our hope is the improvement in quality and reliability more than makes up for it. 20% of all offers are already made by validated accounts, and that number is rising quickly. Guests can still view offers, and even if they can't post, as long as there are enough offers by people who can, the system will still work perfectly for everyone. Register and get the benefit of passive offers instead of having to actively look for trades. If the time comes and it's just not going to work out, we can always go back to how it currently is.

Given recent developments too, I'm reluctant to ever validate my account and likely never will.

What developments are you referring to? Validation is totally risk-free, and it only takes a few minutes.

As for recent developments, I'm talking about the recent DDoSing that appears to be linked to Zybez. As much as I love the price guide, having the OSRS game rely so heavily on a third-party tool is a massive potential risk. The same can be said for third-party clients like Orion. Last I heard, approximatly 30% of players online where using the client, and merely out of general principle, I don't much like how these two components of the game are so heavily outsourced.

I can understand your hesitation, but realize we (and Orion, and probably every other legit fansite and toolkit) exist purely as a resource for the community. Doing anything to harm you or even passively allowing harm to happen would be counterproductive. That's why we ban lurers, post scam warnings, introduced validation, and much much more behind the scenes.

In terms of the DDOS situation, the investigation is ongoing and as of yet there is no indication how it happened or even if we were definitely behind it. I've reached out to several people, but have yet to receive the info I'm really looking for. As I've said elsewhere, rest assured that I do intend to get to the bottom of this, and I'm going to continue pursuing it.

Go to the price guide, then click 'validate now' near the top. Click 'add an account now'. You'll then be asked to enter your RS name, enter it and continue and when the page reloads you should be looking at two boxes with codes in them. Follow the instructions from then onwards.

I Believe this will help out, PLUS Correct me if im wrong but this will will probably boost forum activity cause they have to be logged in and verified to use price-guide and well there at it they can check forums after :P

I have a suggestion that you should add to improve trading with zybez.

- After placing a buy or sell offer, there should be a re-post penalty of about 5 minutes or slightly less (if you delete your post). Many people relentlessly repost their offers every 30 seconds just to be the last offer on the page, unless you want to camp zybez constantly to have your buy\sell offers appear on top of the list then zybez is practically useless with everyone using this tactic which quickly pushes your posts all the way down.
