/ me command

Post by A Looney Kumquat » Wed Dec 13, 2006 3:52 am

How often do you guys use /me?

I think it is amusing, yet annoying but what do u guys think?

I was on two tanks and we had this huge /me conversation it was great, but someone came on and was obviously offended by it so I was wondering what all you guys felt about it so I don' tstart going overboard on a server with people who hate it.

Offended? By then, it's getting out of hand. But in my opinion, the /me is just like talking, and it can sometimes get funny.

Yes if you play in GU league, you know the admins can become quite humorous with the /me command :)

it originates from IRC, and in my opinion it's just part of normal speech (though yes, it can have comedy value).

A lot of /me can give the impression one is nooby. It just depends what it's being used for...

/me thinks he's between option two and three :P
