Massive Accidental Character Breaks (Embarassing!)

Post by Majieu » Tue Jan 11, 2022 8:59 pm

Oh my god... :oops:

I was playing today in between working on some documents and accidentally pasted and spoke a half wall of subjects I was studying through my character... In a populated area, doing a quick character-focused RP with people I don't normally RP with...

My character speaks in the third person a lot, has a weird name, and I type like poo-poo often (must be getting old or something) so I take advantage of copy+paste a lot... But I almost feel reluctant to after this last incident...

This has to have happened to almost everyone at some point but I had to vent about it... Feel like a doof.

Words of advise or consolation? Get guud & type fast? I'm on the suck it up bit now..! :lol:

I have... I think meta'd myself a couple of times while in disguise like an idiot. Additionally...

I like to use the quote style of emoting so I narrate my characters usually by typing their name first. Ester does this, Elysian does that, etc etc.

Once or twice, when switching from one character I've been playing for awhile to another, I've instinctively used the name of the last character I was on rather than the character I'm on now, and it never fails to make me feel stupid.

As a side note, Arelith has ruined my typing. I almost impulsively want to end every statement I make with a quotation mark now.

My big blunder we where in a drow hunt years back. Then I got a tell from someone. Now I thought I clicked his icon to send a tell back and quickly wrote and hit enter. Only to blurt out the tell in character. Little did I know a JJ the server owner of that time was looking at our RP and jumped in when it happened to give a sern talk to and RPR drop me from 20 to 10.

I felt my imaginary RPR drop to 0... Hahahah.
Yeah that sounds like a good one, too. Makes feel a little bit better... :lol:

You know how "w" and "s" are very close to each other on the keyboard? And they don't suddenly get farther apart because you're playing a soft-spoken, reserved character?

It was sheer luck that what I was trying to whisper wasn't anything important, but I nearly reflex-rolled to have her "die of mortification" all the same.

The worst ones I have are when I fat-finger the [enter] key when I am actually trying to type a ['] or a ["] and post my post before I'm done correcting grammatical errors or even finished typing....

OH or when my brain decides to replace a word I'm trying to type with one that looks or sounds similar. Happens all the freaking time.

Everyone have their own embarrassing stories about stuff they accidentally said in public when it was meant to be a Tell. It happens, its embarrassing for sure, and it passes. Really dont sweat over it.

We still have to go through the tedium of unrotating all the furniture after each break-in.

Of this I am sure, and it is passing... Thank you. But to clarify it was a semi critical moment for my character plus it was like;

"Ohhhh....?! TITLE / TITLE / TITLE / TITLE / TITLE / TITLE / TITLE / TITLE / TITLE / TITLE / TITLE / TITLE"

And then it auto sent in front of a bunch of characters because I also copied a line break... Hahahah.

Pretty sure a member of my faction in the distance emoted about looking at me weird, too. Almost over it, almost.. :lol:

When I first started on Arelith I played only the one same character for like a year. When I made my first alt I said “Hello, my name is (Wrong Name)!” … several times
