    I am not saying some casino, poker, small games. I prefer some games like runescape and sell some items/vitual money to earn money.

    kill monsters, earn golds, up level, get some items and sell online on some forums like "sell xxx sword for 20 USD" "sell 10000 gold for 10 USD"

    Not that this is still viable... but I made no less than $20,000 selling items in Diablo 2 in from 2001-2003.

    At one point (before duping was widespread) there were weapons in Diablo 2 going for $1,000 USD on eBay. Insanity!

    It can be done!

    Firstly You can sell Runescape Millions for $5 USD each roughly.

    So if you can earn about 3.2 mil in an hour or so = $15+USD/hour

    I don't think that is that bad. If you can't make that much, train your runecrafting to 91 and craft 2 nats with one pure essence. Also you can go to the Grand Exchange and get some untanned black leather, and tan it and then sell it, you can make heaps that way but it would be closer to 300-500k/hour, ie $1.5 - $2.5/hour

    Also you can join "Second Life", there have been people that have earned over 1 mil in that game, a lot better than those get paid to play sites like, prizee.com. However don't get your hopes up of being a millionaire playing the game, it aint that easy.

    The games currency is Linden Dollars, and it can actually be traded in the LindEx, and believe it or not it is a real currency and can be traded with other currencies like the USD and the AUD.

    Currently about $280 Linden is worth $1 USD. :D

    It seems fun, there are heaps of ways to make money, either get a job, seriously and it pays too >.<, you can make clothing and gadgets, host and perform at virtual events, Teach classes, etc.

    If you want to read up more on Second Life you can read it here : http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Make_money

    Here is the article on the first millionaire : http://www.businessweek.com/the_thread/techbeat/archives/2006/11/second_lifes_fi.html

    If I helped out hit the thanks button, or rep :D

    Cheers

    There is lots of methods going around for second life, but it seems lots of them get saturated quickly.

    If you know how to program, you could probably find a way to make a decent buck there.

    There are heaps of bots for runescape however you will be banned fast, you will only have a day or two max with the account, because they will pick up on it since so many poeple bot, and they don't want to ban unfairly they send a mod your way, normally you don't know as nothing they have or do stands out, and they have a look if they can see your botting your gone.

    However if you woodcut bot, obviously cutting yews, you can get to lvl 60 in a few hours and have about 12 - 24 hours before you get banned, you need to be wood cutting, ie, bot, and trying to find a buyer that is online and can buy, not hard at all really.

    If you woodcut yews, you can get and inventory every 8-10 minutes and it banks it for you, and that is only worth about 14k, so you get about 80-100k/hour, that is only $.50/hour. If you have it running for 12 hours you can only earn $6.

    However if you nature craft you get people running for you and you can craft 52 nature runes every 15 seconds, 52 nature runes = 12k - 10k(runner) = 2k every 15 seconds.

    8k/min = $2.40/hour, which is alot better. If you play 3 hours each day, as a kid, you can get yourself an extra $50 pocket money every week.

    Do they do any bot checking beyond trying to talk to you? Which is to say, if you're watching the bot and respond to messages, will you still get banned?

    They know your botting and you will not under any circumstances last more than 48 hours the moment you start botting.

    Mods go up to you to check up on your as a secondary measure, they know your botting but want to make sure, if they are unable to, they will watch you, ie, some bots have prerecorded things they say, ie, many players say "wc lvl?", so when the bot sees the words "woodcut"/"wc" and "lvl" in the same sentence from a player in view, ie, in their screen, the bot will say "lvl 89" or what ever lvl your wc is. But see the thing is it will do it every time, so if you ask 10 times it will respond with the exact same responces every time, some bots try and change it ie, "I am lvl 89 wc", " my wc is lvl 89", "nearly lvl 90", but not many people respond to the same question from the same person 10 times, they CBF.

    Many ways you can catch em out very easily.

    You could use World of Warcraft and sell 1000 gold for 5$ or so depending on the server. You can also level your account to 80, get full of one armor, and sell it for a few hundred up to a thousand if you are really good at the game.

    No offense, but entropia is crap and chances of getting paid are slim.
    They owe me about $35k US from when I played about 6 years ago.

    Here is one for you.

    If you live in Australia this is a good method :

    Get a phone and get a plan you know one of those where you pay $30, and you $150 worth of calls. You can buy runescape PINS, for like $10 AUD, and sell them for $5. Most see a loss, but with $150, you can buy 14 pins, just to be safe and sell them for $70 USD = $105 AUD = a profit of $75.

    However if you want a free phone just get a $0 upfront $30 plan, and do the same thing except this time only buy 10 pins, ie, you got $50 to spend each month. Sell the 10 pins for $50 USD, $75, AUD. You make $45/month and you get a free phone and credit :D

    Not sure if it works with all networks but I have heard it works with Optus. Ohh and it is REALLY REALLY EASY TO SELL THE PINS.

    Will try it out soon. :D

    Just thought I would let you guys know.

    When I do try, I will do a case study sort of a thing.
