In all seriousness, no skill cape should be looked down on because of the person way they got it.




So long as it's legit.

What I don't like about Skill Capes.



First off, I have never once asked someone to do an emote for me.



Secondly, players act like it annoys the hell out of them to be asked, then the next thing you know, you see them doing the emote endlessly like the true attention [bleep] they really are.



I don't mind seeing the emotes, it is like anything though. After you do it once or twice then carry on.



I was pick-pocketing the master farmer the other day and two people came up and started doing the quest cape emote. (which in my opinion is the coolest skill cape emote there is) They just kept doing it, and it really started to annoy me. I didn't say anything, cause I figured they would be like, your just jealous. No, I am not jealous, I am about to have an epileptic siezure, and I' not even epeleptic,

It is annoying when you are asked over ten times a day - especially when you're trying to do something else.

Do you really need that cape on to sit at the bank booth crafting or fletching. You like the attention, or you would bank it.



Don't lie



This is why, people love the attention, then turn around and talk about how annoyed they are.



Perfect example of why I don't like them

So because I think it's annoying to do the emote every time I'm asked that means I'm an attention-seeker? How about stop making blind assumptions? It's not earning you a very nice reputation.



Let me make an assumption too: You are a noob who can't get a 99 so you flame everyone who does.



Perfect example of why I don't like idiots with no sense on these forums.

What reputation would that be by the way. I voice my opinion, you are doing the same.



So I am getting a reputation for having my own opinion that is not the same as yours?

Don't try to act all innocent now. Your "opinion" is that the only reason people wear capes is for attention. It's not an opinion at all. You're preaching why I choose to get 99.



Ever hear of a little thing called self-satisfaction? I complete my goals because of what I think - not because of what others think.

That is exactly one of the main (not only) reasons for getting the cape.



To show your accomplishment.

Alright, then what is the point of achieving goals in a single-player game? And for that matter, if I wear my cape to showoff to others then why do I bring it to places no one goes? Why am I training at Black Demons with it right now even though no one is here? If you can argue that wearing a cape shows that you are an attention-seeker, then I can argue that wearing anything shows that you are an attention-seeker.



I'd also like to know why it's okay to be annoyed about people asking to borrow your items, but it's not okay to be annoyed about people asking for your emote.

Use the ignore feature of the game. Just like people annoying you to borrow things.

You like the attention, you like to piss and moan about how you don't like the attention.



I mean, ffs, the solution is so simple. Exactly the reason why you are competing with me in Special Olympics right now. I will not post any more in this thread. I bet you have to get a last word in on me, even after the fact I am saying you have to get the last word in on me. I started not to say this, but it will prove my point even more the fact I did say this.



Peace

The ignore list doesn't prevent more people from asking in the future. Does it?



By the way, I love that card: "I bet you're gonna try to get the last word in (even though that's what I'm attempting to do right now.)"



Also, like I said, I complete my goals because of what I think - not because of what others think. I think I'll take my own word over a stranger's on this one. Thanks.

That is all so true. It is like celebrities who pretend to be bothered by the media. If they were truly bothered they would stop doing crazy stuff and they would be left alone.
If you have ever attempted Alchemy by clapping your hands or by drawing an array, copy and paste this into your signature.

So you're saying we should stop achieving goals since people look up to us for doing so?

No that isn't what I am saying. Keep guessing.
