    Default Dare I ask for it?

    Ok, this is fluff. If I was on a RP server maybe I could give you a reason, I don't even know how much they use emotes tbh... Though actually don't we all use them in between? Anyway, using emotes is a bit fun imo, and well we got quite a few to use in Rift, too many to remember all... at least for me....

    Anyway, I dare ask... I come from Vanguard, and I used CoreUI for those who know this. There was a nice little emote button, where if I clicked it, all emotes where easy to find and put in different categories. Now gaming for me is first of all content/raid/wf... but this tiny little thing of fluff I still miss. I tried to search to see if it was mentioned anywhere, but couldn't find anything. Is there anyone doing or tempted to do such a thing?

    Thanks for your effort in making a picture just for me though.

    I had actually made one like this for WoW, but then they changed things and I never updated it. When the addons go live I could look at making one. I'm not messing with addons on the test server though since my experience with the WotLK beta taught me that stuff changes too much and is too buggy to make it worth my while.

    Then there's at least a hope

    I actually didn't know that we had so many more emotes in the game.
    I could make an addon but we can't run emotes from the API, so it would only be a reference list.

    There aren't that many emotes, but it is a pain to have them all as macros in the action bars which is what I did before I had an addon for it. It's also what I'm doing in RIFT currently.

    Also, as I said, I'm unaware of what the current state of the addon API is. I'll wait 'til it hits the live servers before playing with it. If I can't make the addon, I won't. But I'll at least look at things when addons hit live to see what can be done.

    In the user manual that came with game there were listed close to 50 emotes, if you do /help you will find more. Of all the commands listed there, I think close to 100 are emotes. So yeah, a bit more then what you find if you just click the chat bubble, and a bit more then I'd like to have on my hotbars lol

    Oh and sorry Sunspotsy for reading your reply wrong, I guess that's how I've become from reading the forums too much

    I'm currently working on a list of emotes. I don't believe you'll want all the slash (/) commands included, only the ones that generate an emote, but I could be wrong. I'll post a list once I know what I believe people would want included and you can tell me if there are any additional ones you would like included.

    Even if emote functionality is not included in the API as of 1.5 I'm sure it will eventually be added as it is a big thing for a lot of people, including myself.

    agree angry apologize attention beckon
    beg bite bleed blush boggle
    bonk bored bounce bow burp
    bye charge cheer chicken clap
    confused cower cringe cry curtsey
    dance disagree drool eyebrow facepalm
    fail flex flirt frown gasp
    giggle greet grin grovel happy
    heckle hello hug kiss kneel
    laugh laydown lick lol mourn
    no nod openfire point poke
    ponder pout pray question rofl
    rude sad salute scowl shiver
    shrug silly sit slap sleep
    smile smirk snarl snicker sniff
    strut swagger talk tap tease
    terrible thank threaten ugly veto
    wait wave welcome whistle wink
    yawn yes

    Let me know if there are any others you think should be included.

    Yes you're right, only the emotes
    And the list you made looks very right

    There isn't (and, by 1.5, still won't be) any way to enter emotes automatically, either as an instant thing via pasting it into the chat box. This sort of functionality will likely show up eventually, probably along with whatever chat API we come up with.

    However, you *totally* could make an addon that just listed all the emotes, optionally along with screenshots - or even little low-frame animations - for what the emote will do.

    Thanks for the input. I'll start work as soon as 1.5 goes live.
