Default EQ slang now and back then

What did we use to say back before 2002 and don't, anymore? Or what terms have been newly coined?

I'll start with a few I can think of:

Now: box
Then: hydra

Now: BiS
Then: -

Now: -
Then: uber

Now: C
Then: crack, clarity

Now: TL, xloc
Then: punt

Now: flop
Then: FD

Now: pixels
Then: loot, phat lewt

BiS Pre-Planer
BiS Post Raiding

Etc.
