/ME + /GME:

      The /me and /gme commands must be used for roleplay purposes only. This command can be used to express anything that cannot otherwise be said through words;

Example: Giving evidence that is on scene that should be able to be seen, showing facial expressions, actions that don’t have an emote, etc.

On the other hand, /me is not to be used to display anything that would not be able to be physically seen;

Example: /me feels sad – This should be shown as /me looks sad.

However, /gme means Global me so this command should only be used if you need to display something to someone that isn’t in your local area.

/report:

      /report should be a frequent tool used by all members of our FiveM Server, failure to adequately use /report when you witness rules being broken or need an Admin’s assistance is extremely frowned upon and may lead to further consequences. /report should always be your first course of action and you should never skip this step when you need help or are witnessing/dealing with other players who are breaking rules even if you believe /report isn’t being looked at or if you believe you are being ignored. 

Ex:

      /report [id] [name] [what they did]
