The deviantART dictionary. Your all-around resource for finding out what those random acronyms and weird sounding words that people use on dA mean.

Full view to see the dictionary, if you can not see the file, click here for the text version.

Thanks to ^wdwparksgal and `namenotrequired for the DD!

I'm fixing this thing's outdatedness. If you have a suggestion for a revision or addition, please comment on this journal

Awesome!
I'd actually love a dA dictionary for all the galleries...in every language. So many miscats.

There are one or two versions of this (similar, not identical) that give translations of the word into another language. They're featured in the "Help in Other Languages" gallery on #dA-Dictionary.

There is also a lot of translated information at #InternationalFAQ

It's meant as a resource, like a normal dictionary, if there's a word you don't know, you look it up!

I always thought that the symbols next to usernames represented how popular they were :XD:

nope, indeed not =P though sometimes it does reflect that in the long run unintentionally. (I know a couple people who went ~ to * to = to ` to ^ gaining popularity along the way.) It's not the way it's supposed to work though =P
