Diablo II Lingo

Hey, there are tons of words/phrases that I don't understand at all... MF? OIAS? Was wondering if anybody could just post some of the basic terms I should be comfortable seeing while starting out anew on D2.
Was also wondering how the hell the "Ladders" work. I read a sticky post on em and am still confused.
Finally, I was trying to find some people to play with and start anew, coming back to D2 after being gone for roughly 6 years is rough.

Hey there.

Thyiad has compiled a good collection of D2 terms and abbreviations which should be helpful to you. It's located here: http://forums.diabloii.net/showthread.php?t=538888.

Playing on the ladder has a few differences compared to nonladder. The game plays more or less the same, but on ladder, you have access to some unique items, charms, runewords, and cube recipes that you wouldn't be able to access if you were playing on nonladder. Players are also ranked according to level.

To find others to play with, you may want to try the player matchup forum here.

Good luck.

Edit: I saw you asked in the Community Forum about where to start characterwise. It's largely a matter of personal preference, but I'd recommend perusing this thread: http://forums.diabloii.net/showthread.php?t=666476... just don't pick hammerdin. ;)
