Many of the abbreviations used in chats have pretty much become universal and a lot have become creatively humorous thanks to many regulars in those chat rooms.The following abbreviations and their meanings are some of the most commonly used out there. SETE Smiling Ear To Ear SHID Slaps Head In Disgust SO Significant Other SWAK Sealed With A Kiss SWL Screaming with Laughter SYS See You Soon TA Thanks Again TOY Thinking Of You TTFN Ta Ta For Now TTYL Talk To you Later WB Welcome Back WTH What/Who The Heck YBS You'll Be Sorry YG Young Gentleman YL Young Lady YM Young Man ttyl talk to you later ttys talk to you soon tcob taking care of business ttfn ta ta for now Another thing that was previously mentioned is your text size and appearance.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.All I can say is, cheating through a computer is ridiculous, but unfortunately it happens.And like I mentioned of other stuff happening, they can also be messing around with someone not on-line and totally stabbing you in the back.Doing Actions Within The Chat Another aspect of chat rooms is doing a particular action within the chat.
In IRC's you can only type in all capitals, there is no text editing.
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.
