If it isn't an attack it isn't autohitting. Pickpocketing qualifies as an attack.
Listen to Cronk on this, he's right
Nearly all of the RPs here don't function at all like DnD. This would be a rather forced system on what's essentially a storytelling format, not a tabletop.
One of the things that irritates me a bit (at least on this site) is the "I've got a character that nobody can know the essentials of except the GM OOooooooOOOooooohhh" because that means the author is attempting to be way past cool with some slick character design, and honestly, it isn't cool. I'm completely fine with secretive information but if it's so special that nobody can know it isn't really worth it.
Autohitting, autododging, and godmodding are some of the things that plague the RPs on this site the most. Every RP I've browsed on the site (and I look at almost all of them, especially the insanely busy ones) has a gratuitous amount of meta gaming somewhere in between. Y'all really need to cease, it's making some of the RPs unplayable, especially if the GM is the one doing it.
