Question: What Is 'NVM'? What Does NVM Mean?
Answer: "NVM" is "Never Mind" This acronym is used to say "please disregard my last question/comment", commonly because the user found the answer seconds after posting the original question.

NVM is also spelled in all lowercase as 'nvm'.

Example of NVM usage:

  • (User 1): Hey, does anyone know where I turn in this quest? It's called "Opening the Gate", and I'm here in Grizzly Hills region.
  • (User 2): Is that the quest where you have to tame the wild horses?
  • (User 1): nvm, I found the quest turn-in. It was right behind me, LOL!

    Another Example of NVM usage:

  • (User 1): I recommend getting the 2WD version in automatic transmission. You will get convenience and slightly better mileage that way.
  • (User 2): The car only comes in 4WD automatic.
  • (User 1): Ahh, nvm then. Get the 4WD automatic!

The NVM expression, like many cultural curiousities of the Internet, is a part of modern English communication.
