Tweaked the forum software so that now acronyms are a mystery no more. So when people post things like RTP, rtg, snafu, WOL, CM or GG, you know what they are talking about.

Sometimes we're discussing fobt or tsII, LotR, - and newbies haven't a clue what these are. They are probably thinking, "FU - this place is effed up".

If there are acronyms you'd like to see defined, please post them in this thread. ty.

I spotted a mistake in your list above Dunover, sorry about that...

RR is way off the mark, your 'other' description is far better :p

LOL - now my testing drone is answering messages. :p

I have to work out the problem with the ampersand & - it's being regarded as a special character I think.

I thought FTW was 'For the win' ..

Old joke:
Mom texts her daughter asking: 'Hey, what do these mean? IDK, LY, TTYL ?
Daughter replies: 'I dont know. Love you. Talk to you later'
Mom says: 'Fine then... I'll just ask your sister! :( '

I have a deep hatred for IDK. Some phrases weren't meant to be acronyms. I fear that someday everybody will talk in acronymese...or as I call it, lazyspeak.

I have no issue with it on Twitter. Just not in front of your PC on a message board.

Probably being picky and it may be because I am on iPhone, but are the abbreviations smaller than the rest of the paragraph? May need a CSS tweak Bryan.

PS I hope this doesn't meant the forum is full of txt spk moving forward, I am too old for that. :)

Edit: Actually these don't work on a mobile device, I presume they work on hover? Tried hovering my finger over the phone and it didn't work. :)

Is + an alternative? Or maybe just use A as an abbreviation for "and".

So Terms And Conditions could be either TAC's/TACs or T+C's/T+Cs

Yeah, that may be a future endeavour - to get it to function properly on a phone. And no worries, we aren't switching to txt spk. :p The thing is, there are abbreviations that are industry focused that you won't see elsewhere like LotR, RTP, WR, and FU clause. I need a guide for the newbies. :D
