Comprehensive list of BBS slang and terminology. The slang used on the BBS comes from a number of sources, including other sites, text-talk, popular culture, etc. A lot of common misspellings are now humorously deliberately used and some of the abbreviations etc. were originally used to get a word past blocks on unacceptable words on the internet. BBS slang often comes from particular flash submissions or comes from the BBS and is used on subs.

Newgrounds
The epitomy of all flash sites. Originally started in 1996 by Tom Fulp, the site was originally made to showcase his work. These include: FDA, Tellytubbie Funland, and Pico, among others. The site later grew, and in it's growth needed more people to help run it. Tom's brother Wade joined, and other programmers and administrators have since come in and gone out. The site has since become a place where anyone can submit flash. Currently, it also includes an audio portal, where musicians can submit music which flash artists can use in their flash for free. Also, it has a BBS, which is a great asset to the site. It now includes such internet phenomenons as All Your Base and badger badger badger. It also includes amazingly fantastic series such as Salad fingers, eskimo bob, xombie, xiao xiao, assasin, miss dynamite, Klaymation, and countless others. Some authors that have their own websites, such as Legendaryfrog or Weebl, submit much of their flash to Newgrounds, in hopes of attaining more people who will visit their website. Some favorite authors are: Knox (for his klaymation), legendaryfrog (for basically everything), jotandjab (retarded animal babies), David Firth (salad fingers series, with a few other outside flashes here and there), illwillpress (foamy), and a lot more. If you are looking for entertainment on the internet, Newgrounds comes out on top. Because it is constantly growing with hilarious, amazing, or truly innovative flashes (Interactive boogie anyone?), Newgrounds has years worth of entertainment on one free site.
