Smh is commonly texted, and while "shaking my head" would never be texted, the same goes with "laugh out loud". Slang can take on different meanings than texting the meanings.

Yeah, I had the idea individually, but then I checked and saw a low quality version. I put it as quiz idea so people wouldn't tell me the quiz was already out there.

I will appreciate some easier type ins, like shake my head and laughing out loud. Also, I think it will be a good idea to merge Oh my god and oh my gosh as one answer, but both accepted, as these 2 means the same.

The quiz is currently very easy imo, these can also be added:

I really liked the idea and it is something I haven't seen yet here. But as I said, I felt it ended a bit too soon. If not all of these, about 20-25 in total will be a good amount. Now that I have noticed that it is the first part, I guess you might have reserved these for next part, but still, there are 100s of such acronyms one can find on internet, so I'll still suggest increase number of answers a bit :)

Thanks for the positive feedback and constructive criticism! I did indeed reserve those for later versions, but I can increase the abbreviations for shortenings and abbreviations to 8 each. The omg one makes sense, I'll just add a type in for whichever one I don't do. The type-ins will be revised.

Edit: I couldn't find enough shortenings to expand, so I did the update but only avoided that.

ugh I really do fear for the future of the English Language, in 150 years people will start talking like this.

No, I imagine it will be more like this:

Lol! I'm not sure about fourth sequel, as I have ran out of shortenings on second quiz, and I have used up almost every single well-known slang on third. I was surprised QM hadn't done this either, and I'm not quite sure if it is to niche. Thanks for compliments!
