Being able to set a tag that automatically adds itself to your messages. So, say I give it the tag [H].

If I send a normal message, it sends this;
[H] "Oh no, not /again!/"

And if I do a /me, it moves the tag over to the right of the command;
/me [H] walks over, and shakes his head.

You could just ignore it if you use /ooc;
/ooc Because it'd look silly otherwise.

It might help to avoid confusion, especially since we've had people in two or three locations at once, and tags get forgotten.

There should probably be a character limit, maybe 8? And, if possible, strip them from non RP chats.

And you'd set this tag with a /rptag slash command, is that the idea?

It wouldn't be too much work. Would it be nice? I don't know, I don't RP. I went in there once by accident, thought I was in Help. Blurted what must have been a complete non sequitur, something about oregano, which drew some funny looks. Then someone set down a blue drink in front of me, and I don't remember much after that. So if any of you RP denizens want to weigh in on M. Draw's suggestion, that would be welcome.

On the broader issue of adding slash commands to Skylight, is it undesirable to have ones that aren't available in the real client? I'm sure people have ideas for commands they'd like to have. Is Skylight perhaps a good place to experiment? I'd like to hear opinions.

Oh hey, I recognise that quote! :razz:

But yeah, I figured a slash command, since that's the easiest way.

And I'd use it, I was using tags just last night, and I plan on using more. I generally RP later in the day, and splitting my mental bandwidth between RP and remembering my tags... :fear:

You're the only one with an opinion on this, Naes, so you get the grease. Update your Skylight extension to version 1.7.

Do like this to set a tag
Code:
/rptag Vatican

To clear the tag, refresh the page or just give it one of these
Code:
/rptag

As requested, rptags are limited to 8 characters, only appear in RP, and not in /oocs.

:grin:

Also, somebody else was asking about this, but I guess they never posted, I'll let them know.

Thank you Miss Kathryn!

Kippei: ...that was a pretty failed distraction, then.
Maya: New feature, Katy.
Maya: . /honour <player>
Maya: . /infamy <player>
Maya: For me
Maya: Because I can't see honour or inf.
Maya: And to give it, I have to switch modes.
Maya: Which is silly.
Maya: Because honour and inf are only good for chatters.
Maya: And what is Skylight good for?
Kippei: That is pretty silly, yes.
Maya: Chatters.

Okay. I like /gilbert and /remy better, but either way works*.

* in Skylight 1.7.7.

Actually, can we keep it so input is output? As in, doesn't automatically add the brackets at all? People can still put them in for tags, and it could be used for non tags, like

/rptag ::

» Naes Draw :: Some other person who isn't Naes is doing a bunch of very important RP related things, and is just using Naes to post with.
