Ooc: Just to clarify:

First of all, telling us that we can't do something because it's not how your RL friends would do it is DEFFINITELY godmodding.
No, it's not. As long as it's in an Ooc: and isn't Cheetah just taking your character over, it's just advice and not godmodding. I play 2 of Wolf's charries in one RP, and she's given me Ooc: advice on how to play them. That's not godmodding. Neither is what Cheetah's doing; you may not like the advice, but there's nothing wrong with it. Either accept it and change the charrie, or don't accept it and choose another charrie to RP with.

Here's a definition of godmodding for future reference:

subject: Godmoding, aka God modding, aka Puppeteering

There are two ways you can god mod, both are annoying to fellow RPers. The first is to control someone's hitting; ie, you hit someone and take away their choice as to whether or not your fist connects with their face, and how much damage they cause.


Destiny slaps Rian round the face and makes his nose bleed.

That's god moding. A non god moding post would be as follows:

Destiny went to slap Rian.

Rian ducked, and her hand accidently hit someone behind him.

The second is to jump into an RP and start controlling another person's characters. This is usually done by n00bs, who just dive in without bothering to read the rules and start posting a lot of crap in which the other person's characters are completely mishandled and misrepresented.
As long as Cheetah told you in an Ooc: it was just advice, not godmodding.
