    Forced Emotes - just remove them

    People were unhappy before we had an off toggle for them - apparently people are still unhappy with them now, because they can't *get back at* people who toss them with their toggle off. It's all just a mess, and silly and juvenile in the extreme - please just get rid of the things, ty. Or make it so that they only counted for deeds on people who do not have the immunity on.

    Agreed. This is really just getting ridiculous. I understand people being angry about the ones that mess up something you are trying to do, but for others? Someone just needs to be the bigger person.
    I've been at the mercy of men just following orders. Never again.

    Give 'em to the creeps, clearly it takes mature people to handle the massive responsibility!

    Would you creep folk promise to not to whine about them? Then I would gladly mail you all the little items I don't use, for sure! (Well, if I could ;-p) Have at it!

    I think we should just make it so if you can't have a forced emote ON you you can't USE them, also make it so if you have the 'forced emotes' off instead of a immune affect it just says "You can not use the item on him/her" and no affects no consumable used, I hate it when I have something with a 5min cool down and they have forced emotes off so I just wasted a fun item!
    I understand some are annoying, but why should us peep that like them suffer because they don't like being forced to sneeze or get haunted.

    I see both sides to this...but I think there's a better way then just taking them out all in all...

    No no no no no no no no. No. A toggle option was given, use it. If you actually toggled it on, people wouldn't be able to use forced emotes on you, and there would be no reason why you would want to use it back on them.

    I hate to be this blunt right now, to those people who are still complaining, shut up. Please. We've heard enough.

    Do I correctly deduce from what you wrote that your interest in the forced emote consumables has little to do with completing the deed, and quite a bit to do with wanting the affect another players character for your own "amusement"?

    You wrote it as if there's something wrong with that. They are prank items, they are meant to be amusing. The deed part is actually the part that i don't really get. Slap someone 300 times to be able to slap someone without consumables?

    Don't get rid of the prank items, just give people who don't like these pranks / got tired of them an option to stay out completely.

    They're for amusement, not the deed, because when the deed is finished the reward is a skill for the item.
    I find them hilarious to both use on others and have used on me.

    Really, people, just how often does it have to be repeated that you DON'T "waste" the items if your target is immune? It does count towards your precious deeds, alright? There is no "suffering" on your side involved, at all.

    It very much depends on his motivation for using the forced emote consumable. If all he's doing is working on a deed, then you are correct: It doesn't matter. On the other had, if he's doing out a desire to see the effect take on another character, then it does matter. One might question whether, in the latter case, if he is one of the people that sparked the original efforts to get the forced emote "opt out" in the first place.

    First, let me say this, I'm am so thankful for the opt-out button! It got so annoying being set on fire, kissing the dirt or having a green fog surround me (repeatedly) or whatever the other 1's are, when trying to do the dance quests or while fishing at the those festivals. My guess is that those that are annoyed by people being immune, haven't been tortured enough yet to get them to the point of using the button themselves.

    I don't use those forced emotes on anybody. I find it rather humorous to see some 1 try to sneak up and use them while you're just standing somewhere minding your own business, and then see the immune thingie over my head.

    Why not just make it so that the person that wants to infringe thier annoyances on others, be blocked from using them on immune players, and not waste 1 of thier precious emotes.
