Eh I think it's more preference if you like skilled base stuff like pubg or Skyrim should play GE.

I don't really rp-fight anymore, since no matter how you do it, there's always downsides. It doesn't matter if you roll dice just for the end result, roll dice for every move, or write it out, or game it out with complex systems and hitboxes (Which, in my opinion, turns that more into an RPG than actual roleplay. To each their own, though.)
But in the end, it's mostly the same. People care more about winning than having a fun fight. 
At least from my point of view.
Also, I didn't know that gamers had to have a microphone or cam. Last time I've checked, you just needed to play games to be a gamer. Maybe online-gaming was meant, but even then: you do not need a mic for that. You play that with keyboard and mouse, or controller, not voice input (usually). How you socialise next to playing games, though,  is on a different paper of course.

As for how you can tell if someone is female or male... you can't. At all. Because no matter what, everything can be faked. Even RL-meetings could be faked, in theory, although that's pretty unlikely. So you can either trust them to tell you the truth, or you don't trust them and ask for veryfication. Just keep in mind that relationships of any sort, friends and lovers alike, are build on trust. A relationship build on distrust is doomed from the start.

In a Galaxy long ago & far away, before there was such a thing as the interweb...

There was this multi-user game called Zone, it was a dial up system, that supported 12 players, and ran on a breadboarded Sinclair ZX81, with extra PROMS added to it by a professional PROM coder with his own burner. It had a very tight knit community of oh about 50-60 players.

There  was this girl who claimed she was some Asian chick, 3rd gen immigrant who got involved with this guy...

They arranged to meet up "where her fanatical religious brothers" wouldn't stop her having adult fun, in a Motel Room half way between London where he lived and the West Country where she claimed to live.

Problem is... She was white, and the guy had met her before at the annual pub meets so...

She bought a sari, and borrowed some asian jewelery from a friend, then she climbed naked into the bath with 4 whole bottles of the darkest "tan without sun" lotion she could find and basically marinaded her self .

Some black hair dye for her light mousy blond hair and a pubic shave and...

Cute Asian chick meets dumb guy in motel room and does adult fun, he never realised he already already knew her from the pub meets.

Now THAT'S what you call Imersive RP... Hahahahaha

Just a sec...a female...she got naked.

At what point does anyone think the guy would have stopped her?  The joke is on her, he got what he wanted and wasn't going to let on whether he knew or not!

Smart guy.

A tough looking group of hairy bikers are riding when they see a girl about to jump off a bridge, so they stop. The leader, a big burly man, gets off his bike and says, "What are you doing?" "I'm going to commit suicide," she says. While he doesn’t want to appear insensitive, he also doesn’t want to miss an opportunity, so he asks, "Well, before you jump, why don't you give me a kiss?" She does, and it is a long, deep, lingering kiss. After she's finished, the tough, hairy biker says, "Wow! That was the best kiss I’ve ever had! That's a real talent you’re wasting. You could be famous. Why are you committing suicide?" "My parents don't like me dressing up like a girl…"

I knew them both...

He was a smart coder, but a dumb guy, trust me on this... He didn't KNOW he knew her, and SHE was the predatory one who got what she wanted, not him...

He was actually pretty hurt by it when he was finally told who he'd been with. She didn't have the best reputation in the game.

But hey... You provided a way to spot GUYS in SL... 

"Thinks with Crotch = Male in RL"

Nowdays, those that are relatively normal people are hard to tell whether they're a dude or a lady IRL

 

Like me. Am I a dude, or a lady? Momma always said I was an odd ball, but at this point I could swing wherever said odd ball lands in the court. Or... something...

At this point Marth, there is insufficient information from which to deduce but based on a previous post of mine, I don't care, nor am I seeking to find out. Over a sufficient dialogue however, there are other factors which can provide a fingerprint. Men (typically) have a different writing style from women, the choice of words, phrasing, conveyance of emotions etc.

I wouldn't suggest that it's infallible, any more than education about such techniques is knowledge of how to defeat them but it's no different to sales tricks which use crafted phrases to influence, people who are alert to such can spot traits.

General advice though is that if you're bothered about the reality, don't play the game!

Unreliable as hell...

Many suburban Muricans for example ACTUALLY believe that "women don't swear in public", and are deeply disappointed when they accuse somebody of being a TEEN DUDE because she said "****" in local chat, and the reply they get is "no you colonial asshat, I'm English, over 50 and working class, so **** **** **** ******* ****** ******"

I would opine that “polite” behavior varies greatly from culture to culture and from age-cohort to age-cohort.

Here in the US, the use of profanity is kind of like tattooing; it’s more prevelant amogst younger people of both genders until you hit the middle-middle class social strata.

Personally, I grew up in the Old Western parts of the US during the 60’s and 70’s - and profanity was actively discouraged in my part of cowboy-land - at least in mixed company. I can recall my mother saying “damn” exactly once - when I told her that after being “raised better than that” that I was taking my education into the military...

....that was NOT part of the parental plan for my life. My rebellious phase was going nuclear about then.

Soon enough, the military corrected any gaps in *my* profane vocabulary and gifted me with several other bad habits  :-)

I took a different tack with my daughter; I told her that profanity should be reserved for maximum shock-value. If you don’t use it often; it leaves more of a mark when you chose to.

That's why I said "over a sufficient period". Just as statistical analysis for cipher analysis isn't done over a couple of data blocks. One would factor in writing style with culture, location and all other fingerprintable factors.

So... Basically, what you are saying is... IF they provide you with verified data about their RL, age sex location, driving licence, etc., THEN you can compare what they say and how they say it to YOUR idea of what they SHOULD have said and how they SHOULD have said it, based on YOUR misunderstanding oftheir cultural background, IF they didn't lie to you about their age sex location and socioecnomic status in the first place...

In other words, typical pseudo-intellectual Liberal Arts Faculty degree-mill voodoo science rubbish, unreliable as hell... 

No different to those asshats who tell you that they did a "beginners psychology course" and thus can tell that the reason you are a lesbian is... "you obviously had a couple of bad dates with men in the past"...

*rolls eyes*

Far to much credit being given  .. Did some college and then played a lot of <online game> and presume that they are both entitled to know and somehow gifted with remote willy detecting powers. When you're afraid of your own attraction to something it's hard not to see it everywhere ...

Nope but I give up trying to explain it in simple terms and my general lack of enthusiasm for the topic in the first place means that I simply can't be bothered to be drawn into it.

I've never really had any issue with it; if it's an SL- or RP-only thing, I don't see how it matters. Besides I very rarely do SL- or RP-only things; I want my RP to be interesting, I want to see plot lines and characters develop and interact, I abhor RP based purely on combat or sex because it 'makes bad literature' (generalizing), and SL-only things.. Well, I'm one of those crazy 'open book' types who consider my SL and RL as one and the same, so if anyone wants to get into a relationship with me it's usually both or neither (although to be fair, I don't drag RL partners into SL 'just because').

I am a white, heterosexual cis male, but I don't get the whole paranoid homophobia thing (technically I don't like the word 'homophobia' as a clinical phobia's criteria means that the fear of something has to be so strong that it interferes with your function in daily life, but I'm also the annoying type who will verbally abuse anyone who misuses words like 'decimate' ). I've shared beds and sofas with mates to sleep, I've cuddled and romanticized with RP characters I knew were played by males, I hug my gay/bi friends just the same as I hug my straight ones when the occasion calls for it - and I like hugging, it's awesome. 

There are so many things in life to be angry, upset or afraid of, whether it's small scale pet peeves like wannabe-gamers calling Skyrim a skill-based game, or big things like how the f*** a modern nation with a population of 325,000,000+ picks an angry root vegetable as their chief - why would anyone still care about who likes to sleep with who or what? And if you're so careless about who you put your bits into that you don't care to get to know the person first, well you've rather brought it on yourself, haven't you?

I've never had an issue with it either.  This may sound a little pie-in-the-sky, but honestly behind every avatar you meet in SL is a real person and you can literally feel the essence of that person if you take the time to get to know them.  Once a basis of trust has been established you can also voice chat with them.  I don't see why it should matter at all for strictly friendships. But I present myself as exactly who I am—a straight female—when it comes to dating relationships and I do desire someone who is also straightforward about their gender and preferences as well. 

However, due to the virtual nature of the game I suppose a situation could arise where you develop a long, meaningful relationship with someone who may not have been honest about who they are in RL.  In a special circumstance like that, where I had truly come to care for that person, I suppose I'd have to ask myself...if it has never been an issue for us and I can't tell anyway...does it matter? For me I think it basically boils down to an honesty issue. I  would always prefer someone to be up front and honest with me and then allow me to have a choice in deciding if I wish to pursue a relationship. Hope that helps!

I have been looking for the right place in these new forums to ask how you can tell if someone is really male or female because I met someone on Saturday night and although she said she was female she called me 'Mate' which worried me.

*****

Is it normal to role play a different sex and is it rude not to tell people when you are?

Tonight I am having the chicken korma that has been in the slow cooker since this morning since I didn;t want to waste any time cooking when Villa are on the tele. I;ll put a couple of keema nans in the toaster to have with it.
