Dark Ages of Camelot used /em. I prefer /me (since you can actually read what you're typing and you'll get the right person for your verbs), but I recognize that some might be used to /em.

    Yeah, I don't see a problem with implementing it. I've seen enough different people type "/em" to realize that it must be a somewhat common meme in other circles.

      oh...that was just me mistyping something in the CB again ;-)

      Though on the other hand, how much more fun would it be if we made '/em' an alias to "/me makes a typo while saying that /me !*"? <grin>

    I must be getting old.
    I always thought 'em was was a colloquialism of them.
