Lots of posts have what seem to be sounds. They look like *chirp* *chirp* *chirp* or *groan*

Are these really supposed to be something I can hear? I mean it's pretty obvious what the sound is, but I'm wondering if I just have some settings wrong or what.

But it was funny. And it's even funnier to realize that the only way lumberjim would know of that image is that somebody sent him there earlier. :D

"Good point," she said.. quickly saving this image to use on someone else later, even though it's not very nice.

i'm sorry. i would have put a smilie in there, but i didn;t want to spoil the trick. i owe you one. or, if you prefer, you owe me one.

lhatcher 11-09-2006 10:56 AM

No, it was good. Thanks
All that aside, no PM has been received. Does anyone know about the sounds question? Am I just being an idiot? (don't answer that)

Undertoad 11-09-2006 11:09 AM

I can see how you'd think that because some chat programs use that kind of mark when sounds are played, but here we tend to use asterisks for *emphasis*.

lumberjim 11-09-2006 11:14 AM

or overuse them *looks around for DanaC*

DucksNuts 11-10-2006 05:06 AM

Its coz they look soooo *pretty*

******There is no such thing as *****overuse***** of *******asterisks*******...or...ellipsis...in...my...post...ings.

Hey...I *like* using ellipsis in my writings...I intend for it to indicate a pause or sidetrack in my thoughts...that and I'm not a stickler for *proper* grammar.

Elspode 11-10-2006 10:55 AM

When I'm on a roll, writing, my printed expressions come out intentionally like my thoughts stream. Pretty scary, as there will be ellipsis, hyphens, parenthetical expressions, asterisks, quotes...if there was a punctuation mark for kitchen sinks, that'd be in there, too.

Same here, dude
