It became something really common on LSRP and roleplay in general. Heh, good one. :)

It's about the emotes timeline, and "while" usually covers the same as the "as" in the op, things happen at the same time.

Correct usage:
/me sticks a cigarette in his mouth while reaching for his lighter with the other hand, then lights it up.

wrong:
/me sticks a cigarette in his mouth while lighting it with the lighter he holds in the other hand.
(since obviously, you first need the cig in your mouth to light it, you cannot do so before)

refering to this post above for the wording of the person that was asked.

I was doing this mistake as well when a log roll was performed and after backboard was slided underneath, this should be stickied in my opinion!

Oh, thank you bro. It's about doing two different things at the same time and that's the point. What about this kinds emotes;

/me untucks his Glock .19, aiming at his face.
