This is my personal opinion of how /me's should be oriented. If you wish to remark on something I have posted please do it in a polite and civilized manner.

No One Has "Lol-mind-reader"

     I've noticed people (including admins) who make /me's such as, "**John Smith thinks about shooting the person but then decides not to." The problem with this sentence is that no one can tell your thoughts, and it is just meta-bait. (A chance for someone to meta-game.) If no one has a way of reading your thoughts, you don't need to openly express them in invisible text for all to read.

No One Knows Why, They Just See

     Something else I have noticed is when people do an action such as sighing or frowning, they state the reason for it inside their /me. i. e. "**DUTY Soldier frowns because the Freedomer shot is friend." No one knows exactly why you are frowning, they can only guess why because of circumstances. If the person is thinking and frowns because of a memory but states the reason, it's a chance for someone else to meta-game and then DUTY decides to go mess with Freedom. (Possibility, I am only stating what could happen and I mean no direct intentions to any person or faction,  these are only examples.) To help demonstrate the feeling more specifically, gestures, body stance, etc, can be used to convey a mood. This allows the person to wonder why another is feeling in this way and perhaps ask so they can recount a story or create more roleplay.

You Can't Force Bullets

     When you fire a weapon, you can only aim and pull the trigger. You cannot decide where it hits. I've seen /me's such as **Bandit fires his weapon, shooting the loner in the head." This could be considered power-gaming as it is up to the loner to finish the action. I know you may think, "It's a gun, of course it will hit where I aim." but it is still up the the other person on the end of the roleplay to decide as he may be moving quickly where as the bullet hits his chest instead of his head. A more proper /me would be, "**Bandit aims at the loner's head, pulling the trigger after steadying his aim." Or something along those lines, not forcing the bullets to hit a target.

I may add more later as I think I had at least one more but I must be off for now.

Agree with this completely, this goes along with my pet peeve of people doing something like this in the title, "Very Sexy | Duty" That's an opinion. You could look like complete shit to someone else.

Never seen that, normally see stuff like "bloody jacket, bandages" etc, stuff that's plainly visible.

What does annoy me is when people try to explain their personality.

It's a small thing so if a moderator wants to merge it with something or whatever I don't mind. Just so people can actually READ this without it getting stuck at the bottom of the forums.

Nice work Assass, one thing I would add that although you mostly aim guns and fire and then let the other guy decide if your holding someone at gunpoint (AKA the gun's touching against his head) Then it's quite impossible to dodge/jump out the way

Only idiots put guns directly too people unless they are like bound and unconcious.

If your holding some one up, you want to be out of arms reach and be able to see their entire body, so you can see if they try to do anything.

In that case they are unconcious, you'de have to get permission to CK them anyways, so your not accomplishing anything anyways.

tl;dr

If the gun is at their head you just hold the rifle and side-step. Weapon's too long to move quickly. Which is why side-arms are actually great enless you're in warfare.

Why you guys +Support'ing?
You just need to do this and make sure others do it then support.
And I agree with this, you cant force a bullet, and I guess the reasons people use:
* Madcombat thinks about "Somthing".

It might just be to bring on some roleplay but kinda went wrong to begin with, never the less it is Meta-Baiting, so yeah, its good idea me think.

ALot of the time when people contemplate internally or think about a decision, it's rather apparent in their facial and body language.

You may or may not need to add ´´contemplating´´ depending if you can portray the general idea in another fashion with eyes, etc, such as staring off into the distance.

Well, not to flame anyone, but this is what a certain Combine did to me:

He comes into my room with his deagle raised, and he starts typing. "Then I do /Me raises his gun as the stalker comes into the room with his weapon raised:"
then he stops typing, and starts all over again, and it comes out "Skull fires his gun at the Freedomer" and then just pewpewpew's.

Anyhoo, think everyone should follow this, good guidelines to basic good /me's.
