Where do you get all this information: "...this one lasted around seven hours; sometime before 1:00 A.M. (UTC), and ended sometime before 7:30 A.M."

Maybe we need some sources. Who wrote that there were only 5 people at the end of the riot. Isn't the riot over when no one takes part of it? Or, maybe, 5 people, or 10, or 20 people? --Naked1234 01:43, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

How many riot pages do there need to be? Why don't they all just go into the one Riot page? --Want A Pie 04:22, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

If they all went into one article, that'd be one big article. It may be hard to load for some people with dial-up if all the images and YouTube videos are included. Dragon medium helm! Whaddaya know?Chiafriend12Better than rune!I have 12 friends. 04:28, 3 January 2008 (UTC)
If these were all to be combined, it would be one massive article with minimal details on each. In any case, the riots are all different events and each, I think, deserves to have its own article. It's not as though it hurts anyone. Morian Smith 22:32, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

10 Dec 2007 and 3 Jan 2008 riots[edit source]

So... the Unbalanced Trade Riot officially occured on Jan 3 2008 while the riots on Dec 10 2007 and after are officially called "Pay to Pk Riot"... these 2 titles are awefully misleading : both Dec 10 2007 and Jan 3 2008 were (at least partially for the 20071210) about Unbalanced Trade. "Unbalanced Trade Riot" should definitely be a disambiguation between those 2 articles. Also, who gives riots their names ? Riots don't have official names, so the easiest thing to do to respect NPOV is to simply name them after the day (and wolrds, as it seems to be already the case for a lot of them) they occured.

The riots are given their names by the people who create the article, or in the case of the Pay to Pk Riot, the people who move them. I think riots should be titled at least by their reason for rioting (like the Pest Control riot, the Rule Seven protest, and so on) for easy identification and searching. As for the title of this, if this was made into a disambiguation, what would this article's title be (unrhetorical)? Dragon medium helm!

3 January 2008 riot and 10 December 2007 riots... simple and unbiased. Reason for rioting is a good title though, except when :
  1. there are several reasons for the riots (eg Dec 10 2007 was mainly and equally about PK and unbalanced trade)
  2. there are different riots for the same reasons (eg Dec 10 2007 and Jan 3 2008, both about unbalanced trade) Second-abyssal-whip.pngPatheticcockroachGuthan's platebody.png(Talk) 10:08, 3 January 2008 (UTC)
We could always have something like, "First PKing and Balanced Trade Riot" and "Second (PKing and) Balanced Trade Riot", or something. (Sorry if I'm sounding sassy, I'm just trying to think of possible solutions.) Dragon medium helm! Whaddaya know?Chiafriend12Better than rune!I have 12 friends. 10:17, 3 January 2008 (UTC)
Well, that's a solution too. I don't know if the second riot mentioned PK though ;) Second-abyssal-whip.pngPatheticcockroachGuthan's platebody.png(Talk) 10:25, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

30K thing[edit source]

I don't get it. Were they angry that members could have a higher trading limit than free players, or just about the update in general? White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 01:28, 5 January 2008 (UTC)

I was actually at the riot and yet, it was the 30k thing. Blue partyhat.png Da bomba3talk2meSandy Red partyhat.png 03:08, 13 January 2008 (UTC)

Simple as this, Jagex named an article under its news Unbalanced Trade Removal. Entierely anonymous.

Riots restarting again![edit source]

I have seen protests in various worlds a few minutes ago! -Seamonster73

Bringing back memories[edit source]

Ahh...I remember being in this riot. IT WAS COMPLETE HELL! You can't even trade with all the spamming and stuff!
