(void) is a roleplaying function in ATF that nullifies the previous roleplay actions done by the player. It is used in the OOC format, with parentheses. It is commonly used to nullify actions that are simply considered illogical for whatever reason, but it can also have other purposes.
Player 1: I tackle you
Player 2: (wth you're already KO'ed you idiot)
Player 1: (VOID
A void joke is when a player does irrational yet funny roleplay actions, shortly voiding the entire thing afterwards. They are very, very common in the ATF community and are perfect examples of abuse of the (void) function. They can be the bane of any organized RP, as it just wastes time and distracts people. It is often shunned, yet still retains its popularity due to its easiness to use. Commonly associated with OOC-festing.
Player 1: I fall and break my neck, instantly dying
Player 2: (wth that's not even funny void it now or kebab
Player 1: (void)
Voided events are roleplaying events which are voided shortly after they take place. These differ from void jokes, as the events are usually consist of serious roleplaying.
Player 1: (hey uscpf dumbass we're raiding the DMZ)
Player 2: (ok only if you hecks void the whole thing afterwards)
