Hello- nt?

Hi- I'm new here and wondering what nt means. I googled it and it said abbr for "no thanks", but that never makes sense in the context I see it here.

Would appreciate any clues because I don't have one lol

Thanks!

1. It means there is no text in the message part

down here. If a thread is long, it means you don't have to expand out or click on a particular post to see the message text since there isn't any. It is a courtesy to those who may be reading on limited internet access or device. Put it in subject line if you write nothing in the message body.

Welcome to DU.

3. Welcome to DU, demhottie!



Is that Pancho Barnes in your avatar? It doesn't look like Amelia Earhart.

7. Oooh good question- I had assumed it was Amelia Earhart



but it gave me a good excuse to Google Pancho Barnes.

Thanks for the welcome

5. Sometimes people write eom instead.

"End of message"

Although I don't see what the big deal is about a click and a scroll.
