Help us find a compromise for the removal of this chat command.
A group dedicated to raising awareness of the removal of the /me command due to its abuse by a small number of scammers taking advantage of those who don't know about the command's existence.
We offer alternatives to the outright removal of this much loved feature, and encourage all who wish to keep this feature to visit the "Steam Client Beta" group and voice their opinions in either of the two main discussions there currently active.
For those of you who don't know what it is, /me is a chat command that allows you to communicate in the third person.
Gordon3465: *waves hello*
by typing "/me waves hello" in the chatbox it would come out like this
Gordon3465 waves hello
this is a much smoother, cleaner option that looks nicer in chats and allows you to clearly locate these messages instead of looking for asterisks. steam has a massive roleplaying community and this is nearly essential for them but they are being punished because somone on the forums happened to complain about a few scammers using it.
a REASONABLE post as to why you wouldn't want /me back is allowed. assuming it stays in one comment, two if you must use that much space although, one of the admins is likely to debate it..
opposing an opinion is different from trolling, troll comments will be deleted by one of the admins as soon as they are noticed.
This. Oh my good grief this. This is a good game, this is Game of the Year material, well deserving of its nomination at the VGAs, and in my opinion more deserving than the Walking Dead adaptation.
The gameplay is solid, the graphics and beautiful, the setting and story will suck you in and you'll be slitting throats (or not) like the best of them. The game will reward you for killing with stealth, and also reward you for not killing at all. How you play is up to you, but ultimately staying in the shadows is your goal. The Empress's daughter has been kidnapped by activists. Are you a bad enough dude to rescue the Empress's daughter?
This right here is the good stuff. If you've ever played one of the 2D instalments of Splinter Cell, put that down and pick this up. Pleasing to the eye, the ear and the thumbs, this is a solid stealth game. The story's a bit "eh" at times, but with eye-catching cutscenes, you can't help but be interested.
It's been a fair while since I've played a game where the ninja has to stay hidden, and this is a good, refreshing take on the stealth genre. I'm hardly the first to leap onto an indie game, but this is deserving of two big thumbs up.
This right here is the best Sonic game in the longest time. Delicious graphics, well-replicated 2D platforming, blistering 3D runs, tied up in one package with a fantastic soundtrack to boot.
This has taken all the things good about Sonic and kept them, this shows that hey, perhaps a video game developer out there does listen to the criticisms every now and again. I'm not going to say that cast members should be thrown out, but perhaps now you can stop introducing more for a little while, Sonic Team?
