Terms Definition
Admin/Operator Player who are listed on the OP (operator) list, having access to most or even all of the commands on a server.
AFK Away From Keyboard; When a player is away from keyboard
AFK farm A farm that requires a player to function by making the player perform tasks automatically, exploiting interacting mechanics in a way that the player doesn't have to be actively involved due to the fact it only requires one, more or even no keys to be held indefinitely, which can be done by a weight placed on the keyboard/mouse or by exploiting an alt-tabbing glitch.
AFK farming When an AFK player runs an AFK farm
