DafneG . o O ( wondering what others are thinking )

BjB: some trivia for you...Tapped In was originally designed with a java interface and a MOO chat. Moo was created for gamers

BjB: the text commands that are now used were recreated from the MOO language into this expresso chat

MarisaRC: what;s the difference between photo and icon please?

AlexandraK joined the room.

BjB: the photo shows when anyone ID's you, Marisa. The icon appears in other formats, like members of a group

BjB: welcome, Alexandra

AlexandraK: Hello everyone :)

MarisaRC: thanks BjB

AlexandraK: Took me a while to get here - lol

MbarekGst2: oO

BjB: you're welcome, Marisa.

BjB: to view all the text commands go to Actions in the top right of the chat and select Text Command Help

BjB: the text command that I use the most other than the thinking command is the emoting command....

MarisaRC: cool! done it!

BjB: at the bottom of the menu is Text Command Help

JoeMc: got it, thanks

MarisaRC: missed whole convo re emoticons - where do you find them pls
