This is a list of commonly used acronyms in the Neopian Pound board:
If you are offered a 'custom' this means the person who offered is willing to paint/morph the pet they have offered to suit your liking. For example if Janine the Royal Peophin was UFT someone might offer Latoya the Baby Kau + 1mil custom. You could then ask the offerer to morph/paint Latoya into something you'd prefer on a budget of 1million neopoints, i.e. ask them to paint her Faerie.
If you've ever traded a pet before you might know that the PC are a very picky bunch when it comes to names. Of course it depends on the individual you're trading with but in general this is the ranking order of names:
RN (Real Name) - i.e. Bob, Jane, Lauren, John
RW (Real Word) - i.e. Slippers, Igloo, Pea, Chocolate
VWN - Xxxxx - i.e. Allie, these names are capped so they resemble a real name and usually 5-6 characters or shorter and contain no numbers or underscores
WN - Xxxxxxx, xxxxx - i.e. Letishia, these also contain no numbers or underscores but may be slight longer and uncapped
DN - XxxxXxxx, xxx_xxx - i.e FluffyBunny, these can be two words or may contain one underscore, or one number
BN - xxx_xxxx_xxx, xxxx###, -i.e DarkKnight278, these contain multiple underscores/numbers and are usually uncapped/randomly capped
VBN - xxxXxxXx_X## - no one will want these pets, unless perhaps they are UC
Highest - Krawks and Draiks (Although bear in mind that due to the deflation of PDEs and PKMPs these pets do not carry the same value they once did
Medium - Cybunnies, Poogles, Kacheeks, Xweetoks
Low - All other pets
Due to their popularity UCs are only usually traded for other UCs. However if you have a popular RW/RN or expensively painted Draik, sometimes people are willing to part with their UCs.
Here is a database that shows what UCs have traded for in the past:

Nice guide! I'm on the PC a lot so I already know all these terms, but for someone new to trading this could be really helpful.
Good god, I needed this!
It means what pets looked like pre-customisation as not every pet was automatically converted to the new drawing style
^ That tells you all about UCs and shows you all their pics at the bottom
You're very welcome
Hey @trix mind telling me how you do those spoiler things? I've been trying to figure that out for a while but apparently I'm too stupid to do so.
