I have noticed that I have gotten into the habit of posing and then changing my @tp to something that is often times exactly what I just posed. This would cut down on that second step.
If this is implemented, there should be a way to toggle it off. For example, maybe you posed changing positions three or four poses previously. Then you realize that you didn't set your @tp so you go ahead and set it. It would be weird to have the @tp echo into a pose at that point.
emote grins like a crazy person.
But the @temp_place would be: @temp_place me is grinning like a crazy person.
So the temp_place emote is going to be: emote is grinning like a crazy person.
If this proves to be weird, I might disable it. You can toggle it on/off with @options tpemote (off by default).
@tp and @lp are generally formatted in the present continuous tense. "Name is sitting on the ground." They describe something the character has started doing in the past and are still doing. They present your character's current state to others.
With this in mind I usually use a pose in the simple present tense before applying an @tp in the present continuous tense (if appropriate). I announce the action taken to get into a state then apply an @tp or @lp to show that state to any who might look to see what my character is doing.
Posing or emoting in the present continuous tense just feels awkward to me as it's not your character actually doing something which I feel poses and emotes are for. Most of the time the game presents messaging about changes and not about what already is when it comes to character state.
I am not saying anyone is wrong here and I am far from an expert on English grammar. I simply feel that seeing my state announced with nothing mentioned about what I did to get into that state just doesn't feel like it fits in with the rest of the game's messaging in my opinion.
I love the idea of this but I would not use it unless the tense was adjusted to match the way most other game messaging works and would likely be just a little annoyed every time I saw the messaging as it comes off as awkward to me. It just stands out from all the rest a tad too much for my taste.
