Hey everyone, new and old to the forums! I have noticed a lot of acronyms being used here that I had never heard of, and thought it would be helpful to keep a running list of these to be easily accessed for confused members! Most you won't see on the forums, but in chat. The ones that you will see people using most often in regular posts I put in teal. There are a ton more acronyms but I put the ones I have seen and think the people in this forum would use to keep the list short. I also added some words you may hear in chat or on the forums that have a specific definition there. If you know any more I should put up on this guide I would love your input, I'm sure I've missed some and will keep it updated. A atm - at the moment afk - away from keyboard ack - ACK!
