Poll icon

Polls are in-game votes in which players are asked to express their preferences for certain changes within Old School RuneScape. Only members with a total level of 300 or above and with a minimum total play-time of 25 hours can participate.

Originally, polls were only held on the official Old School RuneScape website. Following the results of the Old School in-game poll survey, it was decided to add in-game poll booths. Players may still vote on the official website should they so choose.

Votes over time (polls)

Amount of poll votes over time.

Polls on game updates use a plurality voting system to determine their outcome. Any question containing a Yes option requires a supermajority of 75% of the total votes to pass. This is not counting Skip question votes, an option introduced following the results of the Quality of Life - Top 10 Skilling Suggestions poll.

Polls interface

Example of a running poll in a poll booth.

Placed votes cannot be changed, and every question must be answered to vote. A running tally can be found during polls at poll booths or on the official website. These and other aspects related to polling itself have also been subject of polls, but have historically failed to pass.
