Abbreviations You May Need To Know.
« on: December 08, 2009, 09:15:11 AM »

A lot of newbies to this site don't understand some of the abbreviations used on this board. Here are a few off the top of my head. Feel free to add others or PM (message)  ;) me and I'll add them to the list.

ETA.....Edited to add.  Used to tell why a person has gone back and changed a post.

ITT......In This Thread.

OP.......Original Post or Original Poster. Used when a thread has gotten long or off  
             track and one wants to refer to the original intent of the thread.
IMO......In My Opinion
MHO.....My Honest Opinion (there are many variations on this one)
JMO......Just My Opinion
JMHO    Just my honest opinion.

ISC.......I Stand Corrected
IDK.......I Don't Know
FTR.......For The Record
FWIW...For What Its Worth
QFT......Quoted For Truth
OIC......Oh, I see.
NSFW...Not Safe For Work. (naughty, naughty)
PM........Private or Personal Message.

TU........ Temporarily Unavailable. This shows as a members status if they are placed in "TU" for not following the rules. The amount of time a person remains in TU is up to the moderators. During TU, the member is able to read the threads, but can not post in them.

Names are often abbreviated so if you see one you might just have to back up and read to see if there is a name that fits the abbreviation  ex...BMO=BlackMoonsOwl, EBS= EarthboundSpirit, FW=Firewillow, LPB= Lilpnkbnny, TPG =The Pet Goddess, H=Hjolmaer, etc...

I know these seem obvious but I see it asked often what these stand for.

ETA....To add useful abbreviations from this thread to the OP per request. If I missed any, let me know.

Pretty nifty idea for a thread.

Only one problem (so far) ...


Feel free to add others or PM me and I'll add them to the list.

I kinda LOL'd and then, after I thought about it some more, ROFLMAO'd when I saw that you were FOA in even explaining the abbr. in your own post. 

What is PM?

 :-p

Smarty pants!

If they don't know what LOL or PM is they should turn in their keyboard and walk away.

What the heck is FOA? Follow own advice?

ETA...I actually considered adding PM but i wasn't sure if it was Private, Personal, or something else i I left it to the next guy to add. Sits down keyboard...walks away.

   ... Flat On your @$$     :o   :o   :o   ;D   :-p  :-p  :-p


And the forum just labels them "Messages" but I've most often heard PM used as "Private Message."


ETA:  I just checked the olde forum (yes, it's still up there ... with just a few ghosts visiting once in a while) and it's message page is labeled "Private Messages."
