    So.... Because I love MMOs and have played a few hours in the past I understand that the ability to communicate to your fellow adventurer's about your status is of great importance.
    In the past we, when taking a 'bio break' IRL we send the info in chat. That's all well and good.
    But.....
    I do wish, there was an emote/pose that we could use as a way to communicate that the player is away without the scrolling through text or asking another.
    Can we have the 'squat by a tree or bush' emote?
    Say it can only be allowed when in close proximity to a tree or bush' or rock?
    Player (1)" Bob? Bob u there? Want to go over and club that rat for me? Bob?.....oh I see that his Avatar is squatting by a bush over there....he must be pooping.....good...."

    This is great. I fully support this idea!!! A squatting AFK emote/stance/animation to indicate your pooping with a grimace on the toons face!

     

    HAHA

     

    For real though I like the ESO idle animations that display when doing certain activities. 

     

    When you are looking in your bags, it shows your character holding and going through a backpack.

    When you are looking at your map, it shows  your character holding a map looking at it. (Althought I am not in favor of maps here personally).

    Eating and Drinking animations.

    And now a sqautting to poop animation.

    Many would say that this is a crappy or even piss-poor idea.

    I agree with the avatar action animations. Great to know when a character is looking inventory etc.

    I'm really not sure I need to know what the player is doing... there are worse things than a person pooping to come across...

    Not gonna lie I was a little nervous about opening this post hehe but a character pose for these scenarios is a good and fun idea

    I think it's a really fun/funny idea, but I'd rather not have it in game.  The /afk that eq used was good...I'm just not sure I want to see squatting characters everywhere I go, lol.

    I was hoping someone was going to suggest   Spell:  Illusion :turd:   Which your enchanter could cast on any group member who went excessively AFK.    Would make for interesting corpse drags.   Clerics maybe need to carry a pocket roll of pooper scoop bags.

    You have a rather....unique way of seeing things.

     

    Keep up the good work!

    (Love the idea)

    Ark ideas all over? Maybe a special Emote or something you can unlock, while playing Pubg or something? lol joking aside i thought it was a dum idea in ARK.

    Didn't play ARK.  Not claiming it's an original idea. But I love feeling like I'm dumb, thanks. Hope to never see you in game, you warm ray of sunshine.

    I would personally categorize this as oversharing, but hey if they get outhouse emotes, I want a bong rip emote.  Sorry I'm afk because:

    A few idle animations, even if they're activated by emotes, would be really cool. Maybe a character flipping through a book, or if you go to the tavern and sit down you can sip an ale. Small, interesting things

    an outhouse would be better...to see all the afk players in outhouses and with more outhouses you start to see flies more or even a debuff if there is enough of them around in a area called "that smell"....would also be easy to report players using a bot program XD (walking in the desert while you see a outhouse casting a firball at a mob) XD..the thought of it makes me LuLz
