Hi, I'm relatively new myself.  Here's what I have figured out:

TTT - To The Top

BTT - Back To Top

FTF - Face to Face

SPF - Sold Pending Funds

Bump - It's an acronym that I forgot, but means the same as TTT or BTT.  Puts your post at the top of the list.

I google'd [glow=red]bump[/glow] when I joined. Bump a thread on an Internet forum by posting a reply to it purely in order to raise the thread's profile. This will typically return it to the top of the list of active threads. Bump is usually an abbreviation for Bring Up My Post.

Mana is a peer rating system and per Crowdlg post in another thread on how mana is used-

"if you think someone is good or did a good dealings with you can add [color:"#000000"][font:"Verdana"]mana[/font][/color] by clicking the mana under their name on the left side of the post. any post they make.

you can only add to the mana of a person once and can take it back if need be.

I have added mana to others before.  Looks like I have some as well."

No, in some case of lowballing flippers as much as 50%! Which is an automatic no sale.

Flippers = a guy who lowballs or buys low to sell higher on vagt or other gun auction websites.
