About the Emotes in Star Citizen

The commands your character uses to express emotion are known as emotes. To open the chat box, press F12. (Press L to open the friend list) The command should be started with a forward slash, or "/." The specified emote can have a number added to it within the allowed range, or it can be executed without a number to perform a random emote.
