What about areas? VG, BR, DMP, ZG, BL, OA, GB, OR (never actually heard Otami called that before, but I guess it still counts), and BB.

First time I heard acronyms for server names, personally. People either treat them by full name or the catchier word.

I mean, I'm so used to hear "Carrion" or "Giftbox", I don't even think about it.

As stated above, Areas DO get this treatment however.

Don't forget some of the random abbreviations in this thread.

Now that this was touched... I never saw anyone refer to the areas as BR, ZG and BL...
I've always seen Bill's, Zen and Bassken or "The Lake"(less common).

Also, Stone Coatl is very commonly referred to by full name: "Throne Room".

Seriously, can anyone explain any of these?

Thanks dude. During the Jack event, the servers received many acronyms. I was confused myself!

Thanks. I totally forgot about area names. I actually have never heard ZG, BL, OA, or OR being used. But since it can, it probably will be used. razz

I've heard ZG and BL on very rare occasions. Never heard anyone refer to Otami as OR, but I though I'd include it. As for OA I hear it quite freaquently. A lot of people don't feel like typinf out Old Aquaduct.

I mention it because just yesterday I had to explain div.
