AAncient thread, but I'm new to the community and searching for this term yields nothing

What does
WD
mean :?:

It's in the Insta-chat but I have no clue what it means. I've been scouring the google, the web, these forums, the wiki but I still can't find it...
Someone said this to me in a game, too, so I want to make sure I'm not doing something bad...

It means well done. Might have an ironic touch if you teamkilled or something, but it's often a good thing. :)

Yeah, normally it's "well done" in a friendly way. But sometimes people like to use it sarcastically so it works as an insult rather than a compliment. If you know what you're doing, it's easy to tell the difference between the two.
