The account management interface.

The account management tab shows information related to the player's account. It has three tabs: Account, Community and Links.

Account[edit | edit source]

The Account tab displays the following:

  • Account Management - Open Store icon.png Amount of membership left, if any, and a link to Jagex's store to purchase membership
  • Account Management - Bond Pouch icon.png A button to open the Bond Pouch
  • Account Management - View Inbox icon.png Amount of unread messages in the Message Centre and a link to the inbox
  • Account Management - Name Changer icon.png The account's display name and a button to open the in-game name changer

Display name[edit | edit source]

The Display name interface.

The display name interface shows how long players have until they can change their display name, and how many extra free changes they have redeemed with bonds. The 'Look up name' button found near the bottom of the menu allows players to check if a name is available or not; this can be done even if players aren't eligible to change their name yet.

If the name is available, the button found at the bottom of the menu will now show the name and the status box in the middle of the menu will show "Not taken". If players want to change their account to use the available name, they must click the button found at the bottom of the name change menu. Clicking it will instantly change the player's name without confirmation.

Once the player changes their name, they will need to log out and in if they wish to change it again using the in-game menu. If a bond was redeemed for a name change, the in-game menu may not recognise this, and can be fixed by logging out and back in.

In addition, it is not possible for the game to know if a reserved name is reserved to the player themselves; this must be done via the RuneScape Website.

Community[edit | edit source]
