What does BAK stand for?

Back at keyboard

Someone who sends you BAK has returned to their keyboard and is ready to chat (or do whatever else you were doing) again. You're most likely to receive this acronym from someone who has been AFK for a while.

When someone sends you BAK, it's polite to respond with WB. You may then want to ask the person what they were up to while they were AFK. Or, you may just want to resume whatever you were doing.


BAK and ready to play!
