    BP - Blueprints - used to build great buildings, obtained by aiding, or donating to ones that already exist
    DD - Double Dip - when a Great Building reaches the next level you get an extra collection from it. Most players try to wait until after their usually daily collection to add the final FP(s) to level it so they can double dip and get the production twice in succession thereby not resetting the 24 hour clock.
    FP - Forge Points - a major currency in the game used for research and GB levelling
    GB - Great Buildings - you must collect 9 BP to build these and pay a lot of goods, quality of bonuses may vary
    Lock - to secure a spot on a GB by donating enough FP that no other player can pass you to take that ranking (eg. donating 100 FP to a level that requires 200 means you have "locked" first)
    Mo-PO/mopo - Motivate and/or polish (ie Aid)
    Polivate - see Mo-Po
    Snipe - to overtake a player to lock a reward level on a GB when the other player was donating on a regular basis in the hopes of taking that spot (use of this term is hotly debated)
    _-World - insert a letter in the blank or a short version of each of the servers (it is often difficult to remember the spelling of each world)
    RQ- Reoccurring quests
