Opinions, people. Am I the only one who's annoyed by the 'your feeble witticism' part of the chuckle social? I'd like to change it to not seem so condescending. Whatcha think? |U6

From: Neo_Tritoch Sunday, May 23 2004, 02:37PM I totally agree. I was just ranting about this the other day actually. It's not just chuckle, ALL our socials especially the laughter based ones are snotty, condescending and rude. Why can't we laugh WITH people? Answer I guess, because whoever wrote our socials was probably a snotty condescending elitist type of person but...no we couldn't have one of those on legend could we? Never! Right? |U6

From: Israfel Monday, May 24 2004, 02:29AM Ah! It's merely an evil plot to make everyone customise all their reactions via the emoteto command. (Let's conveniently forget that said command is relatively new...) |U6

From: Kae Monday, May 24 2004, 05:29AM Well, Neo, feel very welcome to add any other socials you think come across as snotty. Some of em sure can use some loving, it's been 10 years after all. |U6

From: Rufus Monday, May 24 2004, 02:24PM 'pat' |U6

From: Vendetta Wednesday, May 26 2004, 09:13PM No, 'pat' IS condescending, PLEASE don't pull it. PLEASE. It's the ultimate come back when someone talks big. I do agree about chuckle, I like to chuckle about a good remark. It's something a nobleman would chuckle about, but not openly laugh. Vendetta Don't pull pat!!!!!!!! Or I'll multi Rufus.... |U6

From: Ramius Wednesday, May 26 2004, 11:42PM Don't even get me started on "ruffle". But yeah, a bunch of the socials have a kind of sassy attitude to them. I figured most of these were holdovers from Diku because I've seen the same ones or close variants on other muds. I'm all for changing a few of them, as long as they aren't stripped of all character. Removing "feeble witticism" is one thing, changing it to just "Blanket chuckles" or something similarly yawn-inducing is quite another. How about just removing the word "feeble"? Chuckling politely at one's witticism isn't condescending. |U6

From: Kae Thursday, May 27 2004, 04:07AM A better non-condescending patting-people-on-the-back may be thump person? |U6
