Since there is no common sense about what ic or ooc is we can use this thread for
discussions.

wikipedia: ic and ooc

Questions could be if the public channels of mom are ic or ooc?
Which words are ic and which are completely ooc?

We don't have to create a roleplay bible here but find a consense about our considerations.

Mixing both ic and ooc leads to confusion, misunderstanding and argument, so i see it
necessary to tell them apart.

Thanks

I think this is a very important topic.

IC and OOC should be defined and should be part of the MoM Lexicon.

It seems, to me, that Wiki is considering IC as everything that concerns the game in any way, but I don't entirely agree; I think that IC is when you're acting like what you say come out of your character's mouth. I don't think something like "I'm gonna change to <insert alt's name> for a sec, but after that I can plevel you" is IC.

It happens that I suddenly change from OOC to IC and the other way around in game, but to say "[OOC]" or "[IC]" before every sentence when appropriate, is an exaggeration, and there must be a better solution than that. How about the availability of an italics button for IC?

In my experience typing ooc messages in brackets works fine, with that i mean the whole
sentence.
Example given "/s [be right back, the dog needs a walk]"

Everything without brackets in this channel would be ic.

Yes, that seems like a simple and effective solution, but as of yet I haven't seen anyone do that. I'll start doing that though.

I like the bracket idea too.

Usually, I change to ooc in a /tell.

Getting everyone in game to agree to a global practice will be the challenge.

I don't believe to be in character in global chat is useful. This is a very hostile environment for that: no specified place, people shouting mindless comments, we have very few contact with the people we talk too, etc.

Hey, Narita :-)

Just wanted to clarify... I was not talking about the global chat channel...

I was saying that it will be difficult to get the MoM (global) community to agree to the same (whatevr that might be) practice.

I know, but Herleva asked this question on the original post. I was replying to this. Sorry Wink
