Anything to do with designating actions in text inside asterisks? For instance, *sigh*, *facepalm*, etc.

So are we talking about one asterisk? at the end of a word?

Or a pair of asterisks? surrounding a word or phrase?

More than two asterisks? The line of asterisks within the heading of a $poyler of a puzzle on this site?

"Always use the same number of stars"? YES!! Time for the

********SPOILER********
Autsnos is an anagram of "always use (the) same number of stars".
It means to always use the same number of asterisks when you post a spoiler on the LTPF. I always use 16, eight in front of the word and eight behind it. What about you?


Nice work, folks, especially Enjay, Noel and Balin (:
Please have a look at my other puzzles and at the new one that will be posted right away!

I used to autsnos with 10 before/after, but I've switched to 4 before/after.

Good puzzle!

I definitely do not autnsos. I don't even worry whether there are the same number at the beginning and end on the same spoiler.

Same here.

If I'm programming, and the rest of the group Autosnos, then naturally I will follow suit. But that's another context.
