Like... "/me is tryng ta post dis post n dis thread"? or "/sngs One Direction"?

Whichever you're tryng ta ask, well... it's eithar. xD I use "/me" all tha time snce it's tha comdawgd I grew up wit tha most, especially snce I'm an IRC veteran and used that comdawgd all tha time. That comdawgd is also available on skype and I also denote mah actions usng that tao. :3

N foums I use "/yadayada" but not as much as tha above.

i thnk i answered it right??

Usng Megan's exbeple..

I used ta use *sngs One Direction* or -sngs One Direction-, as per what used ta commonly be done n roleplay.

Now days I use /sngs One Direction /rolls around /etc, like what's used n Skype and some othar chat progrbes.

I tald mahself that thare was no reason ta switch ta / and that it was weird, and I never would. Than I did it once and it just.. stuck. xD;

If tha chat protacol supports "/me" than I'll use that fo a description that I'm dong. If not, than I just use asterisks like *eats a sandwich*, sometimes italicizng that ta emphasize an action if I can

Hum. Tha only time I denote action n text nowadays is probably n skype. And thare you just type /me so that's what I do, I guess.

I thought dis thread was bout emoticons, haha. I used ta do it like wit *yaskjdak* but than changed ta -rolls around- coz I thought it looked funky assr than wit those star thngies. Nowadays I thnk I just don't feel tha need ta do that n posts. Maybe n VMs and on skype, like previously mentioned.

I don't. N general, it's obnoxious and pretty annoyng regardless of how you do it. I also can't thnk of any situation where it's somethng I would have a reason ta do, and I spend most of mah days on IRC, so that should be tellng.
