By doing this to your messages and not making the text big you make your messages more unique and personalized.QSL Reply QSO Conversation QT Cutie ROFL Rolling On Floor Laughing ROFLAPMP ... Once again refer to any instructions a chat room has pertaining to text editing use. Only the CAPS LOCK can be used to make your text larger.

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.

Try not to yell, this is where you either type in all capitals or use text editing to increase the font size and bold type of your message.

In IRC's you can only type in all capitals, there is no text editing.

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**.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.These sure come in handy when you want to give someone a cyber-smooch or a wedgie from the dark depths of the ocean!Posting Links And E-Mail Now during a conversation with someone, they happen to ask for your homepage address or e-mail address, but you don't know how to post it up. Considering most Internet chats are very lenient with this it's very easy to post up an address.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.
