Should RP avoid General chat?

But full on "How are you?" "*bows* I am well." etc, etc. That would sorta get on my nerves, since I do agree with another poster that General chatter breaks the immersion. That's what /rp channels are for
But I ain't gonna yell at people because RP happened on an RP server.
Yes, using General to rp as if in person is both silly and annoying to others. I merely advocate the use of General to simulate a worldwide radio channel, as per the example above of the Bounty Hunter.

Err.. use the channel (/rp) players specifically created for this, just type:
/cjoin rp

Is it just be or does it feel the level of RP has now taken a back seat on this server?

There seems to be a lot of RP happening Imperial side. Can't speak much for Republic.

The rp channel is Empire or Republic wide so is not useful for a planetwide only message.

With the server closures and movements, it isn't surprising. EBH is Starsider 2.0.

In my 1 word : Wrong . Like was said earlier , this is a "Role Playing" server type . Therefore RP can happen anywhere, anytime. If your RP message gets lost in the clutter of GC , then that is your problem for using GC for RP . Personally , I never use GC for RP messages . I either use "Say" or /e "message" , or I whisper it to the person.
That way my message does not get lost in the shuffle. I feel if we are taking the time & effort to RP I want it to show up where my Role Playing partner can see it and read it. The only thing RP-wise that would be a No-no is ERP, or Adult chat as I call it. If you are in a Romantic, intimate situation with another player ,for God's sake get a room (group) . I do not need to hear what you are doing and where you are sticking her Lekku at. Personally I tend to stay away from this if I can, unless it makes complete character story sense.Then even I will use the old Hollywood
trick of "He holds her, their eyes meet, they Kiss (Fade to Black) " . That way we understand that our characters had an intimate , romantic episode, but we don't waste time having to describe every thrust, tug, bite, and kiss our characters do with each other. For me it is just personal preference. But there again , something like that just does not belong in General Chat considering 13 yr old+ are possible players in this game.

Anyway , just my 2 credits worth. Be well people.
