Rule 6 prohibited account sharing and account trading. It was one of the original Rules of Conduct, but as of 11 May 2009, this rule now falls under the Honour category. This included the Account Trading Scam and Account Sharing. In short, account were not allowed to be shared among multiple people or traded. Accounts were only to be used by one person over the course of the account's lifetime. Players caught sharing or trading accounts generally received punishment up to a permanent ban/mute. The main reason Jagex enforced this is partially due to the fact that selling accounts was very unsafe. Furthermore, accounts that were up for sale (such as those on real-world trading sites) were often actually stolen, meaning that doing so not only helped them profit from their crimes, but also encouraged them to do it again.
NOTE: All examples of account sharing, including those not stated on this page, are still reportable under the 'Buying or selling an account' subsection of Honour, and the punishments for guilty parties remain the same.
- Person 1: Selling lvl 138 account 100 mil!
- Person 2 could report Person 1 for account trading.
