i remember to use emotes back in 2014 when the game was released, but i stayed away of the game for a long time and somehow i still remember most of the commands but not where to use it. i tried a few times on the chat box, even selecting "/emote" and i tried to use the emote commands with the normal "/" and even this way "\", or without it, but nothing happens, so, obviously i completely forgot how to use it :') ...i'm sure it's something easy but i'm not getting it this time
This should help: uesp.net/wiki/Online:Chat#Emotes
I'd have to try it out with a few to be sure but I used "/dance" only the other day and it worked.
ok, got a few odd looks from passersby but tried typing in "/dance", "/laugh", "/cry" without typing "/emote" first and they worked than tried typing in" /emote" then" /cry" and it worked too. Don't know whats causing your problem but emotes are still working

Maybe try using repair from game options in case files have been damaged/corrupted?
Or try restoring all settings back to defaults?
i already opened a ticket on support, but i'm still waiting for a reply.
the way you explained is the way I remember to use in 2014, but it doesn't work any more. but it's not possible to be some glitch in my system, if there are no account locks for inactivity, like on other mmos, then it must be an account glitch, since it doesn't work in any computer.
Have you checked your AddOns? Perhaps one of them is blocking the commands from working? Try playing ESO with all your AddOns turned off, then slowly turn them on one by one until you find the one causing your issue.
