20071115 Wave Hello

Suggestion type

Suggestion scope
Everybody's Contacts

Suggestion description
Sometimes you see someone you know and you want to say hi. However because of the 50 person speech limit you can't always reach them. And text messages only work with powered transmitters - it seems pretty silly that a building has to be powered half way across the suburb to greet a person right in front of you.

Therefore I suggest adding a simple "wave" emote. It would just be a button that says Wave and a drop down menu listing every present contact. It would cost 1AP and your contact would see:

"X waved hello to you."

Your name would be a profile link, so this is also a good way to give a non-mutual contact in a crowded building your link so they can add you to their contacts if they wish (and allow text messages in the future). Nobody else besides the targeted contact would see anything. If you have no contacts present the wave button would not be present.

Zombies would be able to wave as well. They have hands, right?

Keep Votes

  1. Author This is an easy way of giving someone your profile link, or to just be friendly. In case you missed it I'll repeat, only the person you wave to sees anything so you don't have to spam a bunch of strangers or give your profile link away to everyone. --Jon Pyre 15:38, 15 November 2007 (UTC)

  4. Keep - Useful. And not a dupe, the link is an unrestricted emote, whereas this is just a wave. The effects of this suggestion are not achievable with the linked suggestion, therefore not a dupe. Often it's more important to have someone know that you were there, rather than everyone. --Midianian|T|T:S|C:RCS| 16:55, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
    • Re I even have flavor text ready for a news update: "As the years of quarantine slog on the trapped residents of Malton are forming long lasting acquaintances with one another. It is not uncommon to see someone you know waving at you." --Jon Pyre 15:56, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
  5. I think it sounds ok. Edited, didn't see that part. - Whitehouse 16:39, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
  6. Grime - pointless (from my POV), but harmless, possibly useful for others and also disintinctly not a Dupe, as linked below. This suggestion is not contained within that one, although there are similarities. This one is linked to contacts, that one isn't. --Funt Solo QT Scotland flag.JPG 19:00, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
  7. Keep - I see no issue with this Mattiator 19:14, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
  8. Keep - Away with yer dupe votes!--  AHLGTG 21:37, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
  9. Keep - Voting tyrrany never dies, I see. This suggestion works differently, it has a DIFFERENT PURPOSE (reaching out to people in a group of 50+ persons), so it's not a dupe. --Grognor 02:20, 16 November 2007 (UTC)
  10. keep - has more potential use than any recent update and is about as far from a dupe as you can get after 2 years of suggestions! --Honestmistake 10:09, 16 November 2007 (UTC)
  11. Keep - because spam voters are retards--Rictor Stilwell 21:06, 16 November 2007 (UTC)

    • Re That is a more traditional emote suggestion, designed to let you act any action and display it to an entire room of people. That's for extensive and open ended roleplaying. This is a barebones functional method of letting a single person know you were there, or giving them your profile link. The two suggestions are mutually exclusive. This is not for roleplaying at all, just communication. You cannot select a single person, reach them past the 50 person limit obstacle, and have no one else observe your action in the link you provide. --Jon Pyre 15:44, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
  2. Dupe - As Nubis. This just duplicates a portion of that suggestion and is therefore a dupe. If i were to open a book and copy out a single paragraph of text into a notepad, it doesnt magically become something new, it is merely a duplicate of part of a greater whole.--The Grimch U! E! WAT! 15:43, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
  3. Spam- I don't give a damn who wave and I don't want to see retarded emotes every time I log in.-- BKM 18:25, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
    • Re You only see a wave if you are the specific person being waved at. If I wave at my friend you see nothing. So there's no spam from other people waving. And if someone waves at you it's probably an ally letting you know they're in the neighborhood - information well worth having. This isn't really an emote, since those are meant for acting sad or happy or dancing etc, pointless RP fluff. This is just a utilitarian notification with minor flavor text. "X waved hello at you" just sounds better than "X informed you that they were present". --Jon Pyre 18:54, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
  4. Dupe-As above.--ShadowScope 21:43, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
  5. Spam - NOT a dupe. However, the suggestion is completely and utterly pointless. If they want to see you, they will look at the list of characters in the room. You wanna say, "Hi!"? Punch them, or send a text message or something. Or if you are a zombie, speak or gesture at your manbagz. And Mr. Pyre, PLEASE stop with the suggestion-a-day thing, it is getting VERY tiresome. --WanYao 04:20, 16 November 2007 (UTC)
  6. Spam - Or Dupe, or Kill, whatever you want to call it. I think it is close enough to a portion of the linked suggestion above to be a dupe. However, that being said, I personally think that this is 100% perfectly pointless. You can already say 'hi' to someone, so what's the point? --Ryiis 15:28, 16 November 2007 (UTC)
  7. Dupe - Jon... enough of the stupid recycling, please. --Cyberbob DORIS CGR U! 15:30, 16 November 2007 (UTC)
  8. Dupe - Cause you people won't shut up, also, the only difference is contacts, that's absolutely not significant.--Karekmaps?! 21:40, 16 November 2007 (UTC)
