2008-05-11 [Jino "ChaoS" Silver_flamE]: Actually... I use the "::" because I never got used to using the "*", and because it's easier to press on the keyboard.
I've been conversing with people on line for... what... 10 years now?
And to tell you the truth, back then we didn't have rules or anything to tell us how to write actiont ext.
And, since we were chatting first amongst our schoolmates, and after that, with getting to know English better, with everyone else - it didn't matter to me, that a friend used the "*" and another just used the "&" and some others used other markings...
Afterwords, when I started going to more chat rooms, societies, forums, whatever... I still didn't much care. I saw then, that most people used the "*", but still - I was used to another symbol.
And, frankly, I've met other people, who also use the "::".
So... I wouldn't say I use the "wrong" symbol.

2008-05-12 [Avoral]: Yeah, I've seen a million ways of denoting actions myself.
Doesn't seem like too many agree on it, in the grand scheme of things. The research just indicates, more than likely, an original consensus or perhaps (which would mean I've never seen the half of the Internet, which in turn I'd believe)the most widespread method.
2008-05-13 [Jino "ChaoS" Silver_flamE]: :)
2008-05-13 [// Grace //.And..Bend]: Or we could just go back to wow. /e giggles at Jino for thinking long explanations will make her make fun of him less.
2010-02-20 [pelv13]: did this wiki die?
2010-02-23 [Jino "ChaoS" Silver_flamE]: I dunno.
2010-02-23 [pelv13]: huh... well hi =)... been absent from the net for awhile, so i may aswell pick somewhere to b.s. with folks...
2010-02-25 [Jino "ChaoS" Silver_flamE]: Why here?
2010-02-27 [Falx]: Why not?
2010-03-04 [Jino "ChaoS" Silver_flamE]: I had forgotten this thing exists!
2011-02-17 [Avoral]: AHHHHHHHHH
SO DID I
CHRIST I'M AWESOME
2011-03-06 [Jino "ChaoS" Silver_flamE]: This place used to be awesome...
What happened to everyone?
Did we all just suddenly grow up and decide we can't have some good old-fashioned fun or whatever?
2011-03-07 [Avoral]: Nah, mostly got bored with the site. Especially when everyone started going all "emo" and the social momentum started funneling people toward a few specific venues.
These days, it's all Facebook and Tumblr.
2011-03-07 [Avoral]: And probably a bunch of other sites I've never bothered to look into.
2011-03-07 [Jino "ChaoS" Silver_flamE]: True, but I must mention that this place is still here and we, who once called it home, are still here.
There's still fun people to find around this green mess of pixels.
2011-03-07 [Avoral]: I think that's a given. Haha.
Why else would I be here?
Besides, I'm feeling the urge to do something creative-ish, and you can't really just pull off from a site with an IM program installed and write something when you're on, not without seeming like a total dick.
2011-03-10 [Jino "ChaoS" Silver_flamE]: Nah... You can just refuse to answer IMs and do what's important.
It's why I always have FB in a browser while at work - I can go: "I was working. I couldn't talk."
2011-03-14 [Avoral]: I just don't get on it unless I'm feeling social.
2011-03-19 [Jino "ChaoS" Silver_flamE]: That works too.
