look up any word, like smh:
To rise up; to maintain one's position; to resist.
Even though I'm with someone else now, I Stand By everything I said (good and bad). I did right by you. You didn't do right by me. After my friend request went ignored, I hurt, I forgave you, and I moved on. I'm sorry.

To wait while someone you know or even yourself looks for something they should already know where its at. To wait or be put on delay for a stupid reason.
Stand-by while i look for my car keyes we're clearly not going anywhere for a while.

stand bying is a type of cheating in video games with connection. most common in halo 2 but u can do it in someothers games.
wen u stand by ppl go red bar or blue screen.
u can standby by
hitting ur standby button
having a team standby program so it will automatically stand by for you
take ur ethernet cord out and plugin it back in.
briging kind of goes with standbyin because briging alows ur to give connection to the standbyers on ur team
well wen i use to play me and my friend did this...

me:Yo kyle u ready?
kyle: u got the butter?
me: yea im ready to standby bro

The guy named steak shack is a fucking dumbass. Standby is when you are hosting an online game such as halo 2 you make everyone ekse basically disconnect from the game for about 4 seconds and in this time period you have to kill them real quick and then push the button again or put your cord back in or else it goes to the "ominus blue screen" as the dumbass said named steak shack lol stupid fat kid.

ME:"Ya, it's probably that fat kid named STEAK SHACK from urban dictionary.com"
Usu. in Halo 2 on Xbox Live when a player presses the standby button on their modem to give themselves an advantage by making the other players or the other team lag. Often recognized by the omnious blue screen. Stand by has recently been fixed but is still said.
*Red team is sent to the blue screen*
Player 1: OMG! Stand by!!
Player 2: they fixed that mate.
Player 1: oh snap!

A way of breaking the connection for you advantage in an online game. There are two ways to do this:

1. Pull the plag out of your router.
2. Press the standby button on your router.

It is used to cheat, and most of the people who do this are little kids that can't get past a legit level 20 in Halo 2.
I was about to kill him, but he pressed the standby button and assassinated me.
