List of Abbreviations Found
BBS/L = be back soon/later
Will they ever return...?

BRB = be right back
This is more commonly used than BBS or BBL.

CBA = can't be arsed
Informal way of saying that the subject is not of interest.

FYI = for your information
The speaker wishes to point out that something important was missed.

GC = Guilder Coins
All those years it was known as Gold Coins, recently the manager threw in the meaning Guilder Coins

IM(H)O = in my (humble) opinion
You see them in both forms here: IMO and IMHO.

IRL = in real life
This is a more concrete version of RL, which is explained later on.

J/K = just kidding
Often used when someone is making a remark meant as a joke.

KON = Knights of Noblemen
You see it as KON, KoN, kon, kOn... And of course konoblemen.net.

Lmao = laughing my arse off
Well, not literally! Not many realise the usage of the a-word in this abbreviation, though. Writing it in capital letters, LMAO, results in a smiley-image with a broken link.

LOL = laughing out loud
The meaning of LOL tends to be too strong for its usage in Knights of Noblemen and variations are found as lolz, lolzors... As long as it has 'lol' in it.

Newb(ie) = new player
Occassionally, 'the newbs' are generalised in a context concerning only a small group of new players that share the same thoughts.

NM = nothing much
Usually found in an abbreviated conversation: 'Sup?' - 'NM'.

Noob = non-usable body
Technically 'noob' is an invective, though lightly used in Knights of Noblemen it is often seen as the same as 'newb'.

NP = no problem
This is the abbreviation you can use or receive when you are helped or helped someone.

RL = real life
Depending on the context, RL is used for whatever you do when you're not using the computer.

Rofl = Rolling on 'the' floor, laughing
Used by someone when they think something is very funny. Using it with capital letters, ROFL, results in a rolling smiley.

TBH = to be honest
Usually followed by an opinion.

TTYL/AT = talk to you later/another time
The latter, TTYAT, is rarely found.

WB = welcome back
The abbreviation takes 3 seconds less to type.

WTH = what the Hell
When something has a great impact.


~~~~~~~~~~
The list goes on and on. A good site to check is UrbanDictionary.com where you can find mostly non-game related abbreviations.

Should you have found any unknown abbreviations, feel free to ask the writer of this thread about it!

Thanks to:
