What does nt and eom mean?
You can see I'm fairly new to this game. What do these mean? Are there any other terms I need to know?

5. Never be afraid to ask...
If you don't ask you can't learn. Believe me, when I started here I asked TONS of questions. It gave me an opportunity to learn and to annoy a lot of people in the process (which is a hobby of mine).

7. A bit of advice on using eom and n/t...
Put them in the Subject Line! They are fairly useless otherwise...

The only exception being for those who have no sig line (or pic) and must enter some text in the body to be able to post... but you should STILL put eom or n/t in the subject line.
