Q: What does PK mean?

I've seen this internet slang online called "PK" and I think it means Person Kill or something like that, but I don't understand its meaning. Thoughts?

The original word for PK is Penalty Kick in the deciding round in soccer ( football) games to make a break. You know what it means if you know the game.

PK stands for "Player Kill(s)" - in the west we refer to it as PvP (Player Vs Player).

It began in MMORPG video games (even though the term is not really used anywhere else besides China), but I've seen it in TV shows and even daily speech in China, which is probably why you asked the question.

A:Admin i suggest you to make the rules clear in here. I feel the forum is more like an emotional trash bin for those who have difficulties to manage their own emotions to flood shit in here. Why do you think it is ok for viki to sell uniqlo's pic in here? By saying that, banning a person or 2 will not really make much difference. Yes you can ban uniqlo and viki, but soon, there will be uniqlo2.0 and viki2.0 back to forum. I'm thinking if it's better if one must register with phone number or wechat... Then when someone violate the rules, you mute their speech rights from 10 mins till a week... That way, you'll build the conditioned reflex in them. You train them to behave. What do you think? -- SpongeBob
