This thought stemmed from the town hall and various IC experiences. I want to know what does the community think and stablish guidelines when it comes to identifying disguised characters. There's a blurry line when it comes to identifying them when they give away certain traits unique to their character. Without revealing IC details, I've often had my character jumped at (even with un-broken disguise) and most of the time it was with them me standing there: not talking, not displaying their "quirks", and most of the time assumed out of OOC factors like the @shortdesc, the description they have, etc. The question is: at which point does it become ICly reasonable to identify a disguised person? What if you have your worst enemy right ahead of you, and you OOCly KNOW it's them! but they're wearing the same disguise as always, so you know you can't do shit because you'd be breaking a rule?
Another instance is when people have their disguises slip. I've been in a grey zone when I see a familiar character walking past, wearing their hoodie, but with their disguise broken. So I am not sure whether I should recognize them or not, because even when their disguise is broken (and their name is revealed) their face @nakeds are covered. It'd be awkward to try to interact with a character your character knows, but has to pretend they don't know because of covered face @nakeds with the hoodie, even when the disguise isn't functional. I'd appreciate some word on this.
