I came across a post on the RuneScape forums written my Mod Mac about quite a few various statistics related to RS, I encourage you guys to have a quick read because it has some very useful information. Here is an anonymous link to the thread. This information is useful because it's one of the only sources of information, that I am aware of, related to time spent online by the average user, that has been released by Jagex. This information is pretty useful because if you model your time spent playing RS to that of slightly above the average user you could decrease ban rates significantly. It also tells us that Jagex IS logging time spent online for all players. A lot of botters post progress reports showing times of 6 hours+ at a time and many say they bot for 12+ hours a day (I did too), but what I have noted is that these hours seem pretty unrealistic even for a hardcore runescape player. For comparison, one of RS's greatest recent players, S U O M I, played an average of 07:27 hours a day, while more dedicated players such as Drumgun and Jake play about 13:06 and 12:48, respectively. This means that if every single day you botted 12 hours a day, you would be playing as much as RuneScape's most dedicated players; you're bound to end up on some kind of bot watchlist... They also found that the average RuneScape player only plays about 2 hours a day, and if the objective is to blend in with the crowd, that should technically be the safest amount of time to bot per day. (The average time per player would probably look something like this, would be very different though) Ultimately, the longer you bot the more you differentiate from the average user and the more you become part of a smaller group that Jagex can analyse and pick you out from the crowd.
