Doing Actions Within The Chat Another aspect of chat rooms is doing a particular action within the chat.The format used to do it is like this: **your action here**.In most cases all you have to do in Internet chats is just type out the web site address' URL, like this: With e-mail addresses the format is a bit different: mailto:full_address_here In some Internet chats you may have to employ full HTML coding to post up a web or mail link.Again you will have to refer to any instructions that the chat has on posting links. Such a new and wonderful concept, that is until you see the person you're talking to in person! While chatting away you may come across someone who happens to have your same interests.For a much bigger list the WBS Chat Book has a whole list compiled from various users from all over including various smileys!! If you choose you can use text editing to increase the size of your text to catch someone's attention.This is most of the list from that place: AFAIK As Far As I Know AFK Away From Keyboard ASAP As Soon As Possible BBL Be Back Later BBN Bye Bye Now BBS Be Back Soon BEG Big Evil Grin BF Boy Friend BRB Be Right Back BTW By The Way BWL Bursting With Laughter C&G Chuckle and Grin CID Crying In Disgrace CNP... This can make your messages in bold, italics, or color.With IRC chats however just type in the addresses for the person to write down since IRC's are text only and you cannot go from an IRC chat room directly to the world wide web. And after talking with this person for some time you may become attracted to them and vice versa.
Just read those stories of married people having affairs on-line.
You can use as many asterixes as you want when typing these out. From hugging an on-line friend to giving someone a cyber-beer to drink.
Also you can use the abbreviations previously mentioned also.
Or if you want to do the asterix technique instead in an IRC chat you can do that also.
It depends on the person's preference of doing their actions.
