Terms and lingo

Im new to the nation, and have been trying to post on some threads. I have been warned for several thing such as not using the term "bump" and not knowing the meaning of "sig" or "signature". I was hoping someone could enlighten me on the meanings of these and other commonly used phrases and/or acronyms such and "LNIB". These are only some that I've seen i cant think of all of them but feel free to add ones that you might think would be handy to know to enhance ones Pbnation experience.
,Thank you for reading

LNIB= Like New In Box (usually for items that were opened or maybe just tested. As close to new as you can get without it being new and sealed.)

NIB= New In Box



sig and signature is usually people who have their threads to sales or helpful links in their signatures, usually separated by a bar from their post. Honestly in the time it takes to say "sig" they could just copy their own link, but people do it. So if someone says sig, just check the writing under their post.


Bump is just to avoid threads getting put back at the top with no real update or extra content. It's always just better to say something new in the post than just a "bump".
