Guide to Common Acronyms and Phrases

Why I'm making this I have no idea, because you can find one of these practically everywhere. I dunno, maybe I felt that because I had such a hard time with all the lingo when I first entered the spiral I should help out other people who might not understand. Well anyway, here goes!

If you've got any other good one's to add that I've overlooked just comment and I'll put it in. :) (But only if it's appropriate guys.)


  1. Trial of Spheres-TotS
    TC=treasure card
    IMHO=in my honest opinion

  2. Cool Heather!
    wb=welcome back
    and what about definitions for stuff like this ^-^ and o.O
    that would be useful!

  3. Thanks guys! I updated it with some suggestions and a few more I thought of.

    @Christo: I didn't add in OMG because you cannot say it in plain ol' text chat, and some people do find it unpleasant.

    @Anon: Thank you! Since I personally suck at smilies, I think it would be better to let someone else tackle them. :)

  4. @heather I understand, I personally don't use it and my mom does not let me. Some people do use it so I thought I might suggest it. I am glad i am not the only person here who dose not use it. I did not know you could not use it in text chat. I thought of some that are not in here, FYI (for your intimation) and instead of omg, you could use BB (by bartalby (is that spelled right)) or OM (oh my). One more NG (not good) some of these you can't use in-game if I remember right.
