Abbreviations and Slang
Over its evolution, Project Visitor has come to be filled with abbreviations and slang referring to the items and events in the game. For a newbie it can be confusing and hard to know just what is being sold the first time you go to the UN at 1000005 and hear "I've got 20 trans skel, 5 bals and I'm looking for some mojos" or when you hear an MDN member say "There are 6 moths/del and some tit/bal at that alert". It is easy enough to tell what's what (del stands for deliverance, dis for disintegrator, etc) and you'll catch on in no time.
