IC Edit

The acronym IC stands for "In Character".

Basically whenever you are role-playing you are "In Character". It is a good thing to note that when a person acts like a jerk or starts flirting with you, it may have nothing to do with the actual person behind the avatar, just how the character would act. It is wise not to become offended by anything someone does "In Character".

Also shorthand for "I See". (Most likely not on a role playing server)

An acronym for In my honest/humble opinion. IMO can also be used, being just in my opinion.
