They finally took one of my suggestions for the issues with RP'ing and the chat windows:

Reduced the number of characters that can be entered into a chat message. This should resolve an issue where some messages were too long to properly view in the chat window.

 

Now we shouldn't have lost RP during events :)

Yes, it was so aggravating when the gold spammers would use just the right amount of lines to where you couldn't see their names to block them!

you don't want to put too much in at a time because it goes by each name that types something in.  If you type too much no one will ever see it all and that is why the gold spammers did it to hide their name.  From all the online chat I've done since the mid-90's it is far better to type shorter lines, but more often in order to allow it to be digested in order around everyone else.

Don't mess with Mama Bear, I might hug you too tight. =D

yes - the best way to RP is with short statements even if you are telling a long story - keep it broken up so that it doesn't just all mash together. - Makes it more entertaining and exciting that way... you need the cliff hangers so they keep paying attention.

just a side note - from all the e-mails I have gotten from ESO - I've reported 24 gold sellers and 2 who used derogatory / discriminatory racial slurs - no text was too long that I couldn't reduce the font size and see the entire message so I could click on their name to report - think the smallest I had to go was 8 font size.  But I got them - so I am happy to see the limit on lines of text - my eyes were hurting with that small of font and switching it back and forth was a huge pain.

Yea my request was because without a char limit it was possible for someone to make an RP statement that scrolled out of the viewable chat window, and because of the way they had their chat scrolling set up it was possible to lose parts of RP. 

The chat box automatically scrolls however many number of lines the last post was, so if the last post was say 5 lines long, your chat box scrolls up 5 lines, if it was 3 lines long, it scrolls up 3, etc.  Especially concerning when you consider other conversations, zone chat, and trolls/goldspammers/etc.

In any event they have resolved the char limit issue, now if I can just get them to remove the stupid [] brackets on emotes and make it so we can toggle off the automatic visual emotes I'll be quite pleased (No I do not want to automatically jump up and look at a map when I'm trying to remember the name of someplace while sitting around a fire RP'ing thank you very much)

Where are you RP-ing?  I've wanted to get involved, but nothing materialized here. I tried to get a raidcall organizational meeting together, but don't have the rank.

So far I've only really had time for short RP exchanges while we were waiting for folks in our leveling group to catch up. 

Maybe we could set up a little get-together for GSCH RPers this weekend?  I've got most of Saturday free since a member of my leveling party has to work.
