As I read along I notice many abbreviations I do not know. Any suggestions on how to find the whole words for common abbreviations used here would be greatly appreciated. Hard to learn how to do something if I can't understand the language : /

Thanks

I'm going to agree with this statement. Since I started in this hobby the acronym parade has gotten pretty out-of-hand.

Egos. Go figure.

 

Regrettably, we no longer have a glossary of terms.

Maybe just post up a few that have you puzzled and see if we can figure out what they mean.

Like Myc said, the amount of acronyms borders on ridiculous.  Don't be shy about asking when you don't know.   And if it's from an old thread that is mostly inactive, you might find it easier to PM (personal message) a mod, or other member (me included) with your question, and just toss in a link to the thread, and the post that you have a question about.   

 

Folks here are generally pretty willing to help you through the steep part of the learning curve.

 

Welcome to the 'topia BTW, and I'm looking forward to seeing you around the site.

Now there's a tasty morsel of which I was not aware. Will be working to earmark that thread for future reference!

Thanks Thacan! It takes a village.

I had forgotten about that post, nice one Thacan :)

 

IIRC, Alder also had a thread about abbreviations, and acronyms at one time as well,  It was more of an ongoing community effort, and as such required more reading to find your answers then post Thacan shared.  That and I don't remember where it was located, lol.

What's happening? Just wanted to touch on the abbreviation phenomenon people have become a part of. I think that there's a time and place for them, and in most forums it does nothing but cause confusion. Sometimes I wonder to myself if whoever's using them even knows what half of them mean. Maybe at one time they knew the proper terminology, but maybe now not so much. There's just so many, sheeesh!!! I might be speaking for myself, but anything that I'm studying I really like to at least know what it actually is, not just PC/GTCHR/BFOOT/ Grown off a BRF DOOBLE DOBBLE with SPM added to help with RH, AHHH!!!I mean, if you're on a site like this, I think for the most part a good percentage of people are genuinely enthusiastic about the educational aspect of this craft, and new which I'm assuming they wanna learn proper terminology, and than the abbreviations, nicknames, etc.. And I'm not tight about it by any means, sometimes confusion, or maybe misunderstanding what is being spoke about can be misleading, which can lead to all sorts of craziness.

I think that thread of hips should be pinned in the grow section. I doubt many newbs can find it by the time they learn it.

Usually they ask in the Puff forum, move it to where you think is more appropriate, heck copy and pin it in all of them!
