    Forum dictionary

    When i first started reading wow forums i had some trouble understanding certain things.
    After some time it started to make sense. I made a little dictionary explaining some words and sentences to hopefully help out forum newcomers.
    It's a first draft, feel free to suggest additional words or changes in existing.

    - Cookiecutter
    EJ approved

    -EJ
    People with spreadsheets

    -Lackluster
    Boring

    -Retard
    Someone with a different opinion then yours

    -Cool story bro
    If you cant contribute anything, but still feel the need to post something

    -Facepalm
    see Retard, often a picture with an actual facepalm is added

    -A quote from another post without extra text
    You agree with someone and want to let the world know

    -A quote from another post with the addition of "This"
    You agree with someone and want to let the world know

    - /thread
    I've spoken, so now it's clear to all. Lets end this discussion.

    -casual
    someone who is not hardcore, aka "baddies" by people who are not casual

    -hardcore
    someone who is not casual, aka "no lifers" by people who are not hardcore

    -vanilla wow
    the original wow before expansions

    -nerf
    downtuning, bad if it happens to you, good if it happens to someone else

    -buff
    uptuning, good if it happens to you, bad if it happens to someone else

    -Jeez, Not this shit again <insert picture here>
    seriously..wasn't there a thread about the same thing here a while ago?
    (thx Samin)

    -kkthxbai
    Yeah sure, thanks for nothing and i'll see you around if it is not up to me

    -Newbie
    Someone who spent less time then you on something

    -A quote from another post with the addition of "Win"
    I agree very much with quoted part

    -A quote from another post with the addition of "Fail"
    I don't agree at all with quoted part

    -lol
    When you're having fun. Depending on context this means you find another post funny or someones stupidity is something to laugh at

    -rofl
    see lol, but even more funny or more stupid

    -Seriously... <some statement>
    This time i kid you not. I mean it!

    -Troll
    He feeds on your anger. Someone who drops a statement with the sole purpose to piss people off.

    -Quote with the letters "QFT" added.
    You feel that the quoted extract is true in every part, and want to raise it to the level of a law of nature.
    (thx Pheonixis)

    -Nerd rage
    A person living in moms basement getting very upset about something and ventilating that in a non subtle way on the forum.

    -Bump
    Something you post in a topic if you feel that the topic could use some more attention.
    If you say 'plz' because it's shorter then 'please', i will say 'no' because it's shorter then 'yes'.

    Interesting idea, although I would rather you didn't propagate the use of this type of language.

    Its annoying to say the least

    (you forgot that one though )
    And Christ said to his disciples, "I shall grant you eternal Salvation!"
    The disciples fell to their knees and replied, "Give us kings n00b!".

    Hilarious.

    Does somebody win the internet?
    Remember this, kids, it is very important. Even if your mommy makes you a super hero costume, do not attempt to do any of these things, especially flying. Because you cannot do it. You do not have super powers. Because there is only one Super Grover. And that is me.
