OOC
This is Out Of Character, the only time this occurs is at the end of an rp or if you are talking to someone in OOC while rping at the same time. When this occures, make sure you are speaking inside brackets.

[example]

KitsunNaru: He rested his head against Gaara's shoulder as they walked back, a hand made its way up to touched the other boy's chest, holding onto his shirt...((OOC: Hey Hoi XD did you read the manga yet?))

IC
This is In Character, when you are role playing you are IC, or if someone tells you "IC" then suddenly start role playing, it is because they are telling you to get into your character.

AIM
AOL Instant Messenger, it is a messenging program [like MSN Instant Messenger] that we use in role playing as well as using the journals, it provides a faster way to get our characters talking to one another.
