    Default GT Dictionary

    http://i.imgur.com/yOC7Imp.gif





    New to the game, and have no idea what all those abbreviations & phrases mean? This is the place for you!





    A


    Arid - Weather Machine: Arid.

    Air Robs - Air Robinsons. Most popular Speedy Item in GT.




    B


    Brock(s) - Blackrock Walls. Popular farmable.

    Beta. Either referring to @Seth's world BETA, or the Beta server used to test possibly dangerous updates and find bugs, before the update rolls over to the real server. Beta server has also been opened a couple times, when there were problems with the real server. No official statement has been made regarding this topic, but since no public beta testing has happened for many months, we can assume it's been discontinued.

    B Aura - Black Aura.

    Bob/Thinga - Thingamabob. The rarest robot part in Growtopia. Obtained from surgery and used to make a legendary wizard.

    BL - Big lock.

    BC - Broadcast. Broadcasts are the least expensive form of advertisement and send a message to 1,000 random people online. Activated by either using a /bc or /broadcast command.

    Chands - Chandeliers. Popular high-end farmable.

    COTD - Catch-of-The-Day Bait. The COTD is a special bait made by sewing. It can only catch the current catch of the day, which changes each day. The catch of the day can be any regular fish, but there are also COTD-only fish, such as the Orca, Picasso Triggerfish, Seahorse and the Mutant Fish. During some holiday events, the COTD only catches a special holiday-related fish, for example: during the whole span of Summerfest, the COTD is always the Firefin; during Pineapple Week, it is the Pineapple Fish; during Easter, it is the Totally Legit Bunnyfish; during St. Patrick's Week it is the Rainbow Fish.



    D



    D gate - Dragon Gate. An item, that can be opened and closed with a punch. Most often used for storing items, building spleefs, mini-games, parkous, etc.

    D spade - Digger's Spade. A unique item, that destroyes Cave Background and Dirt in a single hit. Can also be bought for 200 Growtokens. Untradeable.

    Devs. Stands for either 'developers', or 'devil wings'; depending on the context.

    E



    Emag - Electro Magnifyng Glass.

    Epic Quests. Epic quests are the hardest quests in Growtopia. They vary a lot and touch every aspect of the game. Completing all of them allows you to create your own item. Note, that you must have a clean record (no bans longer than 3 days) to be able to create your own item.



    F


    FT - Fish Tanks. Possibly the most popular farmable.

    Fashion Show. Fashion show is a popular game in Growtopia. The main goal is to dress according to the theme set by the game runner. Most commonly, the theme changes every 'round', and after every round the least "stylish" person is removed from the game. This is continued, until there's only one person - the winner - left. For example: the theme of this round is Summerfest. The goal is to dress as "summer-y" as possible. Optional items to equip in such a scenario: Sea Moster Floatie, Growbans, Flipflops, Swimsuits, Water Wings, Phoenix Wings, etc etc.
    Rules may vary from host to host, but that's the main idea.

    F eyes - Focused Eyes. Former mod InFocus's mod item that was released to the public. Most popular token item. Obtainable for 100 Growtokens. Untradeable.

    Farmable. An item, that is placed & broken to earn Gems. An item also has to grow in quantity after every harvest, to be considered a 'farmable'.

The higher your awesomeness percentage, the better daily bonuses you get. A new daily bonus is unlocked with every 5% of Awesomeness achieved. Note, that Awesomeness is level-capped. This means, that to reach 20% awesomeness you must also be level 20; to reach 65% awesomeness, you must be level 65; etc.



    M



    Minigame World. A world, with lots of seperate small games in it, with prizes at the end. Sadly, such worlds are almost always scams. (The games are impossible to complete). Games vary from password door quizes to parkours. Worlds like this often have very long names, such as 'LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG'. No one really knows what's the point of those names... It is rumoured, that such names show up more often on the world-selection screen; it is quite a baseless theory, however. With the newly added /report command the situation is becoming much better, though.

    Mass-Producing/MPing. Splicing your way up from the very bottom to end up with a big quantity of a rare item.

    Monthly Update. From the start of 2016, a brand new feature is introduced every month.



    N



    NFS - Not For sale. When someone asks whether X item of yours is for sale, people often reply with 'NFS'. Quite self-explanatory...

    NP - No Problem.

    Nado - Edvoid's Fire Nado. A clothing item. Grants the 'fireproof' mode.

    Night - Weather Machine: Night.



    O



    Overalls - Overall Honors. Overall ranking of a world, determined by the continious daily honors. Note: 'overalls' can also stand for the popular pants called Overalls.



    P


    Perma item/Permanent item. Permanent items are blocks, that return to your backpack when broken.

    PR - Phoenix Ride - Rideable Phoenix. Third & latest item in the phoenix set. Abbrevation also used in trading.

    PP - Phoenix Pacifier. Second item in the Phoenix set. The abbreviation is mostly used in trading.

    Password Door Game/Quiz. Answer all the questions in the password doors correctly and in the end, there will usually be a prize.

    Pro - Professional/Rich. Most used when praising a rich player.

    PB - Pet Battles. 'Pet Battles' is a feature introduced in June. Simply put, if you have the needed items you can battle your friends' pets and beat them.

    PC - Price Check. A phrase used, when seeking info about an item's current value. Almost only used on the forums.

    PJ - Punch Jammer. An item, that blocks people from punching eachother in your world.

    Pure World Locks. "Pure world locks" aren't a real item, it's just a phrase used to emphasise, that the seller wants only WLS for their item, not other items. This phrase is slowly dying.

    ZJ - Zombie Jammer. An item, that blocks Zombies from infecting other people in your world.

    PZ - Punch and Zombie Jammer. Used in jammer-trading worlds when one wants to buy both a Punch and Zombie jammer. Example: "buy PZ 15wls".

    P Wings - Phoenix Wings.

    PAW - Player Appreciation Week. PAW is an event created by the developers to show their grattitude towards the players of Growtopia. It lasts for 7 days. Each day a new feature, and 3 (or sometimes more) items are introduced to the game. Traditionally, the event ends with a 'super mod dance party'.

    Rainy - Weather Machine: Rainy.

    RSP - Rare Seed Pack. A pack costing 500 gems, that gives you 5 random seeds from rarity 20 to 60.

    Retro - Retro Magnifyng Glass.

    Rollback. A rollback is an operation which restores a database to a prior state. In Growtopia, this affects worlds, player inventories, gem counts, and stats usually in order to revert the effects of a game-breaking bug. Consequentially, any work which players put in during the timeframe which was rolled back is lost.

    In compensation for lost work and time, rollbacks are often accompanied with an Apology Weekend, a weekend-long event in which in-app purchase values are increased and players have a chance of getting lucky drops from breaking blocks. Any gem purchases made within the timeframe which gets rolled back are given back to the player at double the value. (Source: The Growtopia Wikia)



    S


    SB - Super Broadcast. Abbreviation for Growtopia's global broadcast; sends a message to every player currently online. Activated with the /SB command.

    Spleef. Spleef is a game, where you and several other people are locked in a huge box, with dirt (or any ohter block) as the ground and lava underneath it. The host will start breaking the dirt, one by one or all at once (varies) and your job is to not die from the lava. Some spleef arenas have extra lava around the box or some death spikes, it varies. Most of the spleef arenas are not punch jammed, so you can punch other people to their doom. The last survivor wins.

    Sig/Siggy - Signature. Only used on the forums, but since you're already here...

    Slenderman. (A game.) There will be one / a few slendermen, your job is to run in the maze made solely for this game and make sure that the slender men don't see you. If they see you, you'll be kicked out of the game. The last one to be kicked / the last survivor wins.

    Super Mod Dance Party. Super mod dance parties are held at the end of each PAW, in worlds SUPERMODDANCEPARTY1-5. In there, the moderators and sometimes developers dance with the players and chat.

    SSP - Small Seed Pack. A pack costing 100 gems, that gives you 5 random seeds from rarity 2 to 20.

    SB Block. A phrase used, when one SBs right after someone else, therefore "blocking" the first sb.

    Stat(s) - Science Stations.

    Sethmumu - Seth and Hamumu. Mostly used on the forums; not so much in game.

    Snowy - Weather Machine - Snowy.

    Sunny - Weather Machine - Sunny.

    SL - Small lock.

    Scape - Shadow Cape. Clothing item.



    T



    Toxic Roulette. You'll be placed alone or with a few people in a 3x3 room, and a toxic barrel will be put in the middle of the room. The toxic waste barrel will be broken and what you need to do is to make sure you don't die from the waste of the toxic barrel. This game is solely based on luck. The last survivor wins.

    Token(s) - Growtoken(s). A currency earned from people rating your world(s). As of September 2016, Growtokens can also be earned by completing Daily Quests. Growtokens can be bought from Locke for 1 Diamond Lock each, too. Can be exchanged for items in the Gem Store. Untradeable.

    Tip: use CTRL+F on PC to find the word you're looking for; for mobile users, click the three dots at the top right corner and press 'search in page'!

    There are a million more phrases and abbreviations out there that I forgot, so please reply with ones I should add here. Thanks!

    Disclaimer: this tiny guide is dedicated to newer players; an experienced player will probably get nothing out of this. Some phrases are also quite self-explanatory, but still added.
    This has also probably been made before (though I haven't seen one myself), so excuse me for that. I'll try to keep this one updated, though.


    Please note, that this list doesn't have and it never will have all the words, abbreviations and phrases used in Growtopia. What it does have, is the basics and most commonly used words. This list is ever-growing and will never be complete! Help and suggestions are greatly appreciated!

    Please direct your newer GT friends to this thread after they've been playing for a few weeks (no point to overwhelm them with this on their first day). That's the purpose of this thread afterall - to help newer players and make it more easy for them to understand what's going on in this crazy game.

    scape = shadow cape

    ft = fish tanks

    Cool guide, and what about adding another section to list like, the games (fashion show, etc) in Growtopia so newbies don't get confused? Pretty tiring reexplaining newbies what the game is and how to play it, so I assume that a lot of newbies don't know games in GT.
