I think it was from MSN calendar. For some reason they're apparently still giving me notifications. <_<

Ahh, the awkwardness of reverse-engineering your birthday to find when you were conceived.

My birthday is on the 20th of November, I was about a week late.
You can do the maths.

I'm really confused about bonds, I don't see how it stops gold farmers.

Bonds are worth over 12M in the G.E. so I can give $5 to Jagex and get 12M in-game. So gold is currently valued at 0.41/M. Gold sellers will just lower their prices.

It doesn't help people who sell gold because you can't sell the bonds for real money, so they will just keep selling gold as they always have.

Why can't they sell bonds for real money if they're tradable? (Gold farmers that is)

They can also be used for 14 days of membership, so practically 1m/day.

That's also what I thought this was about after reading Owen's first post about it.

Ironically, I just purchased underwear. but no. Jagex sell 'bonds' for rl gp, and they're tradable in game and can be sold to other players for ~15m atm. They can be converted into 14 days membership.

It's to stop gold farmers.

..no idea how that's supposed to stop gold farmers though.

It's actually a really good system that has done well in other MMOs (EVE is a good example).
It removes the level of risk that you have when buying gold from a gold farmer, you never really know if you'll get it or not, no matter what guarantee they make. The other benefit is that when gold farmers sell you gold it will come from their constant farming of gold, which increases the amount of gold in the game and thus; inflation. With this method, they are sold to other players for gold that is already in the game, so the players buying the gold aren't contributing in the same way to inflation. This also isn't taking into account the players who get hacked and what not for RWT purposes.

If the gold farmers have to constantly lower their prices it becomes less and less worth it (especially with less customers as people will opt for the safer option) and they will have to farm more gold, and with inflation lessened, farming will be harder, meaning more time for less money. It's as system that has been shown to work in other games already and hopefully will work well in RS.

Sure, it might not stop all gold farming/RWT, but it's a good step to solving the problem.

What's stopping gold farmers selling bonds? If 40-50% of players buy gold already, they know the person they used last time to be safe.

I'm not sure it will remove that much gold from the game either, most people in my opinion will trade their bond for 14 days membership then work their backsides off for 3-4 days recouping the money they spent on membership. Hence, no money is out of the game?

I've given all the explanation I can, it is a -proven- system, it has worked in other MMOs. The profit margin for gold farming just becomes too small, and yes, a lot of players that buy gold from farmers will use this bond system instead.

I guess when it comes down to it, we'll just have to wait and see.
