Dismissal[edit | edit source]

Jed's Twitter account was suspended in September 2018,[1] shortly before it was announced that a member of staff working on Old School RuneScape had been dismissed from employment by Jagex.[2] This was later confirmed by ex-Mod Mat K in an interview with ex-Mod Shauny.

As a result of the dismissal, affected users who had lost coins and other items in Old School RuneScape as a result of the staff member's misconduct had their items returned to them, and received a message in the Message Centre stating:

Hi there,

This is a message from Jagex Player Support.

As part of our ongoing investigation, unusual activity was identified on a number accounts[sic], including this one, which resulted in the movement of wealth and items back into the live game.

As a result of this investigation a member of The OldSchool[sic] Team has been dismissed from employment at Jagex for misuse of moderator privileges as related in the following newspost .[sic]

We have decided in these rare circumstances to return your account to as close as possible the state it was in prior to the incident by returning your lost wealth.

Please note that due to certain unavoidable restrictions we may return platinum instead of specific items so you can purchase replacements.

We take matters like this very seriously and, as such, we would like to assure you that we have taken steps to make sure that an incident like this will not happen again.

If you need further help, check out our online support centre.
