For all who don't know, RS:C/R is a place where you can report someone who is currently rule breaking in Chat.

First off, if a Chat Mod is inactive in Chat, would you expect them reloading the page every time to see if someone is misbehaving? There is no clear way on a Chat Mod seeing if someone has been added to the list.

Secondly, ZERO people have been banned from this page. Observe the history page, and you would see many entries filled in, yes, but all EIGHT of them were either vandalism, Users that shouldn't have been banned, or just unnecessary (User was already banned).

Thirdly, rarely anyone even uses this, if not needs it. The last legitimate report was... well... actually never. There have been no cases where CMs were not in Chat and a user was breaking the rules. And even if there ever was, there are many more suitable places to contact a Chat Mod: whether it would be *shudders* IRC, in-game in the RSW Clan or by even PMing the user if they're on RS.

TL;DR: Get rid of RuneScape:Chat/Reports: No reason to have it.

Support - I currently see little to no use for this page, especially given the amount of moderators/admins we now have in chat. --Touhou FTW Zaros symbol.png 10:22, September 2, 2012 (UTC)

Support - I think it's a bit pointless to have a page like this...who would bother to edit this page while someone who is still rulebreaking could've left the chat long ago? Dogfoger (talk) 10:40, September 2, 2012 (UTC)

Support, but there has to be a place where chatmods can ban users. Currently that is the RS:C/R page, but if that gets deleted, the ban box needs to move to another page. If it gets moved (so that it is possible to ban for any amount of time, and possible to ban if the user is not in the chat), I think it's good to delete the RS:C/R.

Are the times at Special:Contributions not adequate? If there are other times that are often used, please add them. :P svco4bY.png3Gf5N2F.png 15:54, September 2, 2012 (UTC)
The problem with Special:Contributions is that it doesn't work in Monobook (intended, S:C stuff was kept off Monobook on purpose), and the last time I checked, it didn't work for me in Oasis for some reason. So yeah, I'd rather have my script than a buggy oasis-only script. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 09:42, September 7, 2012 (UTC)

Support - for reasons stated above. Small recharge gem.png AnselaJonla Slayer-icon.png 11:50, September 2, 2012 (UTC)

Support - I'd been planning on making this for ages -- this thing hasn't done anything, can't do anything and won't do anything. I never understood why it was implemented. Ronan Talk 14:09, September 2, 2012 (UTC)

Support - Pretty sure IRC is the place to go when we really need a ban. MolMan 14:12, September 2, 2012 (UTC)

Neutral - I personally think having something like this isn't a burden to us, but I do understand everyone else's viewpoint. Hair 14:48, September 2, 2012 (UTC)

Support - Why was it made again? svco4bY.png3Gf5N2F.png 15:54, September 2, 2012 (UTC)

Support - The page is unnecessary. Smithing (talk | contribs) 18:11, September 2, 2012 (UTC)

Support - Per omn omn nominator. Ork chathead old.png User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 18:35, September 2, 2012 (UTC)

Support - Not as useful as I originally hoped, and was only really there as a last resort anyway. I've only come across one time it was used successfully since it was created. cqm 22:03,2/9/2012 (UTC) (UTC)

Support - Per that Tyler guy. Matt (t) 17:45, September 3, 2012 (UTC)

Support - I thought I said it wasn't useful in the thread that considered it. --LiquidTalk 12:27, September 4, 2012 (UTC)

Support - Don't see any need for it - no legit reports. Red partyhat.pngSuperburkeHammer.pngTalk to me 20:25, September 5, 2012 (UTC)

{{RfC|I know it's been there for just five days, but RS:SNOW and RS:UCS are enough to close this.}} User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 14:37, September 7, 2012 (UTC)

RS:SNOW only applies to threads which have been opened for 7 days, so just wait another 1-2 days. It won't kill you. HaidroH rune.pngEagle feather 3.pngCandle (blood red).png 1XqyDNM.png Crystal triskelion fragment 3.pngHazelmere's signet ring.png 23:42, September 7, 2012 (UTC)

Closed - The RS:C/R page will be deleted, and the chatban box will be on RS:CHAT. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 12:37, September 9, 2012 (UTC)
