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.
Considering that this relationship maybe over a long distance the chances of you meeting the other person are almost next to none.
But don't let this stop you from keeping in contact of each other.
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.
When in IRC chats there's the "/me" command to do your actions.
Just type it in like this: /me your action here, and it will print out your name and the action you just did.
