A Bot (or macro) is a program designed to play a game automatically. They are often used in one of two ways: training skills or collecting items. Although it is against Rule 7 to use a macro and doing so could lead to a ban, some players choose to download and use a macro to train skills while they are not online. Often, macro writers rent out their bots to players for a fee which also constitutes Real World Trading.
Jagex has many complicated macro detection systems in place to catch macro users and ban them. In order to prevent bot writers from trying to circumvent these systems, the details of how they work are not provided. Jagex does not give evidence for bans related to macroing.
