players sitting on other players

Post by bigglesworth » 30 Apr 2009, 06:35

My only 'The Mana World' experience with this issue is on the Eathena client.

Some players are bending the rules relative to abuse by sitting or standing on a sitting player. This can be interpreted as an intimate position or an invasion of personal space.

I remember a time when players could not walk through other players. I believe this was removed to prevent people from creating 'walls' of players.

So, if the following implementation would not block an exit, is it possible to restrict an abusive/annoying player from sitting on a second player if the second player is 'sitting' and the abusive/annoying player is not your 'friend'?

I'm suggesting to disallow only sitting, because blocking the standing position could be abused to prevent stacking of players.

Are you serious? Lol. There are for more abusive things that go on in game. And why does this even bother people?

An intimate position? Come on.. it's pixels.. and most people complaining are "adults".

Come on... people are identifying with their tmw characters, situated in fantasy world. When you are reading sci-fi/fantasy book, do you constantly thinks "It's only a book, all these things are fake"?

I don't get the point you're trying to make.. because someone presses the key "s" when on the same spot as your pixel you should get offended?

I see the point Bigglesworth is making, Goku. I don't like it when someone sits on me either. I'm not "offended" by it, but it can be annoying.

I just get up and move to another spot.......... I even get up and move if someone sits on me when I'm invisible. :lol: Maybe I'm just crazy :D


I think we all know players who identify sharing the same pixels as a sign of affection. I see nothing wrong with that. :)

I know that MK and there's nothing wrong with thinking of it as a sign of affection, but people shouldn't get offended if someone does it to them and you obv. know they're joking.

Now if they're doing it on purpose to annoy the hell out of you, that would then classify as abuse, no? And it can be reported and proper punishment will be made by our oh so wonderful GM's.

The suggestion was simply that if I choose to ignore a player, the ignored player could not sit on my character.

Abuse for sitting on someone? That is just stupid.
Current character is "Abolish".

I'm not recommending anyone to be banned for abuse because they sit on me.

My suggestion is that a player must not be on the ignored list to be able to sit on another player.

Anyone may sit on anyone. They don't need permission. They only need to meet the requirement that they are not being ignored.

So then the person can't sit in the same spot as you?

Isn't that like the wall thing? They aren't allowed to sit in a certain spot because your there?
