Yeah, I agree. In doing this, I'm seeing a lot that are no longer around.

Ok, I updated it with most of your suggestions as well as removed some that no longer are used.

Most of the people I play with say gs or gz for congratulations, and only a few say grats, so I think they do deserve a space on your list.

Quoted for Truth, or perhaps Quite F*cking True, depending on the person or context ^.~

No WAY will q be for Requirement. Only idiots use it.

But srsly, Ryker, you need to add gtfo.

It gets used more than enough to warrant addition

Ouch - regretted making this list yet, Rykes?

You may well need this one: tl;dr meaning "too long; didn't read"

Oh, and good ol' IIRC - "If I Recall Correctly"

Ryker, the reason I suggested adding Light of Deldrimor to the LoD entry is that the Cathedral of Flames runners ask you to bring heals and LoD.

They don't mean Light of Deliverence.

You should mention that a lot of people just type "1" or "rdy" to say there ready or as the shortest method of saying okay.

Also, everybody should know that "newbs", "noobs" is a negative term for new players.
