Internet slang dictionary ITT

Was thinking about adding a dictionary/glossary to the site, inspired by some things I’ve learned recently-ish (in before “I can’t believe you didn’t know those”)

idk = I don’t know (I swear, this is a teenager thing, nobody I know over 20 uses this)

ITT = In This Thread (4chan speak)

Any other doozies? Good/bad idea?

I’m a big fan of RTFA and RTFM, a polite way of saying, “How about you read the article/manual?”

Did some research and found -- seems to be scratching my dictionary itch pretty well so far.

Love the translator! “Can’t understand that text message? Put it in here” :D

BFD: Big F-ing Deal. Later adopted by Domino’s Pizza as “Big Fantastic Deal.”

BFG: Big F-ing Gun. The BFG 9000 is the most powerful weapon in the Doom video game series. Subsequently, Quake II and Quake III: Arena featured a duel-wielding pair of similarly powerful weapons, called the BFG10K.

I was going to bump it just cause it was the oldest thread. 50000 internets for that mega BUMP.

He’s referring to the “Burger King” error.

Also, here’s that link you need. It contains everything.
I apologise if I typed it in wrong again, but try it this time anyway.

It didn’t work the first time, of course. Stupid lack of copy paste. I fixed it, now it works.

Exactly how the dictionary will be implemented into the site has yet to be discussed.

The Chanspeak / Lolspeak parent entry lists 12 common phrases.

The current dictionary in Etherpad is still under review.
