    WTFIT??? The acronym thread.

    I thought it might be nice for people to have a place to come to to look up various acronyms they find around the forum. Yes, Google is there to help, but there are also TS-specific acronyms that could be harder to find.

    So, whenever you come across/think of/use an acronym, pop over here and post it, whether you know what it means or not, and we can add it to the list, which I'll update in alphabetical order as more come in.

    Great ones coming in already

    I was going to expand it to include the other stuff but I can't remember what the word is for the other stuff... (Having a total brain fart here... Stupid word's completely vanished...)

    So like Devs, which isn't an acronym... Also Playrix, vBulletin, Admin, Mod... A kind of, glossary? What's the friggin word I mean?

    Abbreviations?

    But Playrix and vBulletin are not abbreviated. So ... Index?

    Glossary would work as it is specific to the Forum.

    “Forum Glossary”
