Emoting


Emoting

Many people like to use the emote system to have more flavorful text than the socials give. It's highly encouraged here.

Our emote system is pretty easy to use once you play with it and learn the ins and outs. We use the stock lambda system with a few tweaks, such as adding .y.

While this system isn't as necessary with two people emotes, it is more helpful when several people are in the room. However, use it with 2, 3, or even 10 people.

Typing @ in the middle of an emote will move your name.
emote Grinning, @ eats all the pie.
This will show:
Grinning, Tracy Wade eats all the pie.

You can also speak by using quotes with an emote.
emote Grinning, @ eats all the pie. She speaks through a mouth full of food, "This is good."
This will show:
Grinning, Tracy Wade eats all the pie. She speaks through a mouth full of food, "This is good."
