A Simple Grammatical Suggestion
with poses

When I type a pose, I'm typing it from my perspective. Poses already change certain grammatical things so that different people will view the same words differently. (names, you, she, etc)

Can we make it so that if I type, ".smile at person as if i am very sorry." it will change the "am" to "is" for others and "are" for me?

".smile at person as if i am very sorry."

"Tylissa smiles at you as if she is very sorry."
"Tylissa smiles at person as if she is very sorry."
"You smile at person as if you are very sorry."

Cause as it stands now, you have to type "as if i IS very sorry" in order for it to look right. Obviously this is no big deal, so don't act like I'm saying it is... But it seems if we're going to have a command like this it might as well be complete.

And yes, I know that there are ways around using this sentence structure altogether, so if people feel it isn't worth the coding that's fine.

All I'm saying is, sometimes the to-be verb comes in handy and it'd be nice.

Ok, you may now proceed to point out why this is unnecessary and/or impossible to code. Hehe

if  you do she is it would work

:smiles as if she is very sorry.

Hmm, yeah... that works too.

But I'm still wondering if it wouldn't make sense to allow for the other way too.

It should cause that's how I've always done it, heheh e

Yes, but that's emoting not posing. They're two different things.

There are lots of things about pose that don't work properly. Namely the issues with you're and you'll where the apostrophe doesn't come out right on the end of the person entering it.


I'm not sure how much coding it would change to fix these things, but from what I understand they've been there for a while.


All I can say is that you get used to writing poses not from your perspective but from that of the other people who will see them. It becomes second nature.

Not to sound uppity or asskissie, it is only the BETA testing version so somethings aren't bound to be perfect.
