Some of us aren't as good at chat-speak as others, and so, it's easiest to have a guide. If you find another that isn't on here, please post it!

ASAP - "As soon as possible"

B
B4 - "Before"

BIC - "Back in Character" as opposed to "Out of Character." Used to confirm that one is role-playing, when before they were not.
BRB - "Be right back"
BTW - "By the way"
Bump - An acronym for "bring up my post." When a topic does not receive any replies for a while, the creator may bump it to make it easier to find and possibly more popular.

Charrie - Character
C&P - "Copy and paste," used to show the actions of copying and pasting.
