I'd be cool, but I don't see the point in it.

Voted -1. To be honest, I hate this idea. No offence but the ability to see over ones shoulder just doesn't fit in with Serious RP. Nearly everything on this server has been reasonably realistic which is what attracted me to this community, and ideas like these is not what I play on this server for. Of course this is just my opinion. You may think this is a great idea, but this is the way I see it.

I like it, but could we have a rotatable camera like in GTA so we can see how our charecter looks lime from the front?
Either way, I would love this.

+1 It would be cool, but like Igor said if people are able to abuse this, we need to add a rule and take it seriously.

It would take about 2 seconds to change between first and third person.

A simple cmd such as

/firstperson
/thirdperson

You'd also be able to bind them to a key.

Actually, people can actually use C to shoot (it looks like you're looking at a wall but you can shoot to the side) which is cheating and then this allows them to see around them more freely.
People can then use this to their advantage and people won't have any proof of them using third person to look around.

On second thought, I would stay neutral.

a rule wont cut it. People will use it and it is near impossible to enforce.
