when people make thereads that have a lot of pics, sometimes they put "no 56k". What does that mean?

^ no 56k means there's a lot of pictures... 56k let alone 28k cant handle it... its a warning that if you click it your comp can freeze and/or lag. lol just if you have 56k and there's a warning... dont click it. hahah go to the library or something and check it there.

im sorry, but whats a reserve? i see pll get happy when there isnt one. is it a amount of extra money you have to pay?
My dad has a friend that knows a guy who works for jordan brand that I became close withstill team anti ds.
^reserve is an option for the seller that lets the seller decide how high they want their auction to go before selling it. for example, if a seller sets reserve at 160 for some shoes, that means if bidding does not exceed 160, the seller doesn't have to sell the shoes. no fees are incured on the buyer. if reserve is met, then it's just like a regular auction.

wut does HTML mean?
HTML (HyperText Markup Language) is a simple, universal mark-up language that allows Web publishers to create complex pages of text and images that can be viewed by anyone else on the Web, regardless of what kind of computer or browser is being used.

It's basically a language that allow you display certain things on the internet.
I've seen some people use NWT to mean "Normal Wear and Tear."
