I had to chuckle on this one. I recall the first time I heard this term used in-game. I was only familiar with the slightly naughty reference of the term and was wondering "why does this guy keep asking me to 'grind' with him? what kind of game is this anyway?"

I don't see "Woot". I mean sure its used in everyday speak as a way to show joy, but it originated in D&D as a shortened version of "wow loot" and its a backronym for the term "We Own the Other Team"

The list is pretty good, the only thing I can think of right now is DKP.

Dragon Kill Points
A system for recording player events, attendance and ingame item drops to help distribute items fairly. Originally developed in EQ by Thott of Afterlife it has since evolved with many different DKP systems. Despite the name it is not limited to dragons.


In the process of writing this I thought I'd stick DKP into wikipedia, as I stick almost everything nowdays, and I found this page which might help Guildcafe eliminate any obvious missing items: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Massive...s_and_acronyms

Hey guys,

Back in January I mentioned something about your entry for "Auction House". FFXI did use the term before WoW was ever launched.

Are you still going to leave the entry saying that the term originate from WoW?

Wouldn't it be easier to make a list over each explained word, & link each word to its correct entry? As it is, it looks very chaotic, especially if all the MMO slang has to be crammed into it.
