Re: ABBREVIATIONS / ACRONYMS and MEANINGS

the word pwned or pwn3d comes from the world of war craft game waaaaaaaaay back when. a coder made an error and instead of having the word "owned" in the game they mistyped and hit the p instead of o so when the game text popped up it would say things like "player x pwned player y."

the 3 comes in from l33t h4x0rs (elite hackers) script kiddy as they call it.

Re: ABBREVIATIONS / ACRONYMS and MEANINGS

Sorry to burst your bubble, but the word "pwned" came way before World of Warcraft. It is a common misconception because WoW is, if I am not mistaken, the most played MMORPG online today.

I dont know about its exact origination, but I believe it came from Counter-Strike 1.5, about 6 or 7 years before WoW.

And I have never heard the term "script kiddy"...I always refer to it as "leet-speek", or "1337-5p34k", which is really where the 3 comes from in pwn3d.

Re: ABBREVIATIONS / ACRONYMS and MEANINGS

if someone writes bump on a thread. it just basically "bumps" the thread to the new posts section so it can be easily seen. it took me a while to realize that also.
