Feel free to add anything I have forgotten!!! The slang is basically like texting, if you dont know dont hesitate to ask what something means. Try not to swear on peoples servers, but some servers change words so sh*t becomes poo etc. My abbrevs for swearing are well known and generally acceptable but always Remember to be respectful.
