I actually tend to do that in IM chats.

Most of the time I just don't say AFK or BRB due to habits. lD

Though, I actually tend to say them when I'm in Raids in WoW...but people actually get nickpicky about the "BRB or AFK" That was a pain in a neck for me actually @_@

When I'm in Flash spaces, this is what I do when I'm not looking for junk to sell or playing in my house. I think it's fun to read what other people write. I especially like cosplay avatars that don't break character.

Lately, no one talks to me. It's eerie.

I ... do that a lot.

I don't even know why. I just go into Rally or something and sit there, watching the convos. Sometimes people notice me, mainly for my coloured name, but a lot of the time I'm lost in the pile of newcomers.

Sometimes the conversations are interesting. Sometimes not. Lately I've been getting bored much quicker and leaving, and if I'm in Towns 1 then I hunt for rubbish and stuff ((even if it refuses to save to my inventory!! stressed ))

It's not like I go to lurk, it just happens. I think it's my avatar. He looks a little intimidating.

Basically, I'll sit for about 5-10 minutes to see if a conversation happens. If not, I'm out of there.
I thought I was the only one who did this, I do it nearly every day when I get bored.
I love randomly jumping into conversations and watching everyone get confused, thinking I was afk.
A lot of the time, I'll leave the tab, and came from to someone flipping out on me for 'ignoring' them.
Ha ha, I used to do that quite a lot! There are some weird things out there.
I find it funner when your avi is decked out in tons of expensive things, rather than just having an avi with minimal clothing.

Lurking in Towns using an "I am" pose to be a box or turtle or a bat or something

Hide behind something...

Then come out and scare somebody (a newbie is especially fun)

*is evil*

Somebody did that to me once a long time ago. It inspired my evilness since. twisted


OMG!! I do that all the time!! Well, not recently but I used to do that all the time. sweatdrop

Yeah, the real reason I go to flash-spaces is to people watch and spy on kids who try to cyber. >-> (Newbs really don't seem to understand that town conversations are NOT private like they think they are.) Conversations in Rally are rarely enlightening so I tend to lose interest quickly and pop out just as soon as I pop in. There are a lot of attention seekers there to. stare

I love lurking in the town. I always change to an "i am" and follow people around as something cute. I never say anything, but I get enjoyment out of it for some reason.

It's a pretty common occurrence in the part of Towns I go to. I always thought they should come up with a way to put the words BRB or AFK on your avatar when you're away that way people know.

There have been many times where I've been tempted...but then I decide I have more interesting things to do than people-watch. It's just not a pastime that appeals to me.

Used to be that one or more people do the Grunny "I am" thing around Easter and run around, get "petted" and stuff. ninja

I like watching avis in those hangouts when I'm bored. Some of the conversations make me laugh and I like showing off my car.

To many trolls for my liking, alot of the rally kids act aggresive to any decorative avatars.


That's probably because most of the "kids" in rally are actually children. You would be surprised how many kids below the age of 13 register for this site, and they go to the first place they see where they can act like an "adult".

If you go to a crowded room in Towns for a minute you can see it, "if anybd tlks lik dis" it's a good indication that they're underage(or just uneducated).

There is no real way of identifying if a person is underage or not, so either we just have to deal with the immaturity in rally, or don't go.

It's a choice.
