We are excited to introduce a feature called Narrate i.e emoting chat commands by typing /me! The feature is available in the pre-releases 506.18 and up. Download it today to test it out and give us feedback!

Many of you - especially members of our Role-playing community - have requested this feature. Some of you may be using a similar feature available in gchat or other IRC communications.

How does it work?

Pretty simple! If you are VIP, type /me in front of the text chat sentence where you want to act out or emote something.

Example:

Typing /me waves will be seen as "Varsha waves"

Typing /me shakes hand with Katiemarie will be seen as Varsha shakes hand with Katiemarie. Of course if Katiemarie is in the room, then our recently launched avatar name auto-complete feature will work there as well.

For a non-VIP user if they see such a narrate in chat, they will see a VIP upsell prompt upon hover on that narrate text.

See it in action:



There is no opt-out setting for this feature as you can only opt-into using it by choosing to type "/me" in front of your chat text.

Thank you and we hope you enjoy this new addition to add emotions and actions to your chat conversations[/img]

I wouldn't be surprised if it became a VIP only perk.. considering the number of users that are not VIP that have asked for this >.<

But if it does become a VIP perk.. can we at least not have the shameless "Buy VIP to get this feature" notification.. it's already bad enough with whisper.

This makes me think it will be a VIP perk. It already has a built in prompt to buy VIP.

Varsha said VIP's get early, not that it is VIP exclusive. Generally VIP's get to try features before other users do.

Love the introduction of this feature! However I do hope non-VIPS can use it in the future.

This is a feature we should have had for years now. If in the end it becomes a "vip only" perk i will be quite upset. This is like..a standard chat feature, even Skype offers it out of the box..

This will most probably change the way RP is done, unless you don't want to start a line with your name Wink I tried it, and liked it!

O.T: OMG varsha changed her profile picture!!! does this mean the end of the world? Shocked Shocked

This is great! I can't wait to try this out as soon as I have time to download the newest pre-release. This is actually a really good feature and I like how it looks so far. Great job to whoever thought of implimenting it!

Second that one Alba, and it was the first thing I noticed when I opened the thread.

Varsha thanks for supporting breast cancer awareness.
