Good mods that don’t add a whole lot? via /r/Minecraft

Good mods that don’t add a whole lot?

The title basically says it; what are some good mods that don't add a whole lot to the game? By that I mean, nothing like Mo' Creatures or FTB, but stuff like Minimap, Spawnercraft, WorldEdit JustBackpacks, or Reap. Things that add commands, actions, or convenience items rather than add-ons. Any ideas?

Help with Minecraft chat etiquette?

I have played Minecraft for about two years, and I'm totally hooked. I play vanilla/Survival and am about to search for a server to play on with multiple people. Because I have only played solo, are there chat "languages" or etiquette I should follow? Any advice welcome.
