In IRC chats you can "perform an action" with the /me command. It changes the way the text looks so that it's a little more third person and narrative. Here's an example:

chmullig: I'm really hungry
sam: You should eat some cake
chmullig: You're right, I should!
* chmullig eats some cake

However if we wanted to use a pronoun, what would it be? chmullig eats his cake or chmullig eats my cake?

Third person pronoun, chmullig eats his cake. You're writing for how it will be viewed, basically.

  • "You're writing for how it will be viewed, basically." -- Good point. Thanks!
