Pets using emotes and "talking?"

One of the things I liked best about the Mastermind class was that there was a list of emote commands that allowed you to have Pets use certain emotes and "talk" if you wanted (as in dialogue bubbles would appear over their heads and their names would appear in the chat window next to the text instead of yours if you typed the right command before inputting the text in the chat window). I remember that one time I amused myself in Pocket D by having my three lowest level minions talk and argue amongst themselves when I didn't have anyone to rp with. Will that still be possible with Operator pets? Because that would be cool.

One thing that would really

One thing that would really impress me would be if you could decide what the text says, or even voice over your own minions.

I thought you could already do that with the MM pets/minions in CoX? That was what I was saying.

Well except for the part about voice overs, anyway.

Giving players these type of power is very dangerous. Since it can be used for players to say or talk offensive things. Specially on voice overs cause that is really tricky to have a effective censure control on this situation.

People can already say

People can already say offensive things without that anyway. That's what mods and the report button are for. Also voiceovers probably wouldn't happen anyway because that would get annoying no matter what they were saying.

/petsay_name Impy "Hey, 'sup cutie?"

We could do this already, including emotes. What MM didn't have the Magic booster pack and have their pets juggling?

Now EverQuest, their version was abusable. You could give NPCs things, including weapons, and people were voice grafting (the necro power) onto guards and things and having the guard say, "Give me your (some expensive weapon) and I'll upgrade it!" and the person would, and never see it again because it just disappeared into the bit void.
