    Good morning,

    I know we are restricted to somewhat hours per month. How do we check how many hours we have left? thanks.

    Always wondered why that limit even exists in the first place. It can be bypassed by just using a different account. I'm going to assume it's to stop large scale gold farming? Incentive for monthy payments?

    It's one of the two main ways to monetize the site. When people hit the 200 hour cap, they can buy supporter/sponsor to get more client hours, and that money goes directly to Runemate. The other way being that a percentage of premium bot credits spent goes to the site, (and the rest goes to the bot author).

    It's just so that Runemate is able to make some money off people using the bot platform even if the user is using a custom/private/non-premium bot. The fact that it costs more for gold farmers is probably also intended, as they probably should be paying more than just some random guy getting a couple levels on his HCIM.

    Pretty much what I thought. At the end of the day though, bots are an hourly cost (if you're even using paid bots) and making new accounts is free.
    So it's either really generous or really naive, depending on how you look at it.

    Making new accounts is also against the rules, and doesn't work, and will result in being banned from RuneMate.

    I think it worked back when I first joined.

    You regenerate hours a month after they're used.

    So if you use 5 hours January 1st, 10 hours Jan 8th, you get 5 hours back Feb 1st & 10 hours Feb 8th
