    Hopefully if we flood em with enough feedback we'll get their attention. I'd like to see em get rid of those scratching animations.

    Your pirate can scratch all he wants, I personally dislike the animation.

    I so agree Red. I really don't know why they had to add that feature, I guess they thought it was funny, but it is as you said "annoying".:p

    Yes, we all do scratch in RL but NOT to the extremes of what it is in the game. I also do NOT scratch my bum thank you very much :p

    It's funny at first, but in my opinion when we don't move for a while we shud just automatically flip coin.

    Or you should be able to set a emote to do after a while like dance flip a coin etc.

    Will brings up an excellent point - there were plenty of existing idle animations - /coin /bored /yawn /tap that could have been used much more easily.

    Why instead, were offensive animations added?

    i dont think these are offensive in my eyes but i'm tired of being in crew chat and my character looking like they are getting spoken to in a language they dont understand the entire time unless i'm flipping a coin lol

    hmmm maybe for business?, thinking it would attract more basic players to keep playing? there for better chance to get more unlimited access members?, I really see no other point than for business, whatever the reasons were. Which there is nothing wrong wanting to do better business, but I don't think a lot of people like that!

    yall are on the right track.. but think of this outside the game...Pirates of old had very poor hygiene practices...so that being said, i find it humorous.. and funny all the time..gut i am in the minority.

    I find the scratcing to be annoying.. would not be bad if it was occasional, but when you stand still it's crazy... and yes molly.. I do believe the scratchin would indicate we've all been on the ships to long and picked us up a few crittter friends who like to lurk in all the areas we've been scratching.. ewwwww...

Never thought of that, I dont mind the scratching my head is like i am thinking about what i want to do next, but i say, dont anyone stand behind me, i mean even i carry my doll, i use that to scratch with, your are right, is a bit embarrassing, my little nephew, says, you got a wedgie, Auntie? (anyone doesnt know what that means i will explain later, lol)
