A very good suggestion, if I may say so! LOL !!

Couldn't we create a new section, whith a fast entry like the:

Our collection

All aricles

-

-

-

Goodies

and call it something like perhaps

Terminology/abbreviations

Under this we could put all the "intern" words we use, who to newbies,

or lurkers, like cal.1003, for an example, even he/she has been lurking a lot.

Words like:

lurk, WIS, LE, QdI, LH, LOL, ROTFLMAO, C, cal., Ref., K, etc. etc.

I think from when I once started reading at TP, BTW that's one,A very good suggestion, if I may say so! LOL !! TP=The PuristS,

how difficult it was to follow, and it took a year before I learnt ROTFLMAO,

and I surely missed some informations and laughs there, I guess,

and perhaps some nuances.

What's the fellow Loungers opinion?

I mean it should be easy for a new visitor to understand what we are talking about,

and these above are only a handful.

It should be done in that way, that each of us could go in and correct/add words and abbreviations.

Just my 2 Crowns (yep, no cents here A very good suggestion, if I may say so! LOL !! )

Cheers

Doc

I agree with you Doc!

And I must say that sometimes it is not so funny to read some posts as I do not understand all the abbreviations! 

You can understand them through the global meaning of the post, but a help would be much appreciated, especially after, at the beginning, asking Alex some meanings...

Great idea

what's LH ? :-) Good idea but maybe we can create a

thread and put it up in the Recommended Threads section?

I think it's better if it could be a short cut of it's own,

because a new visitor, ot someone who sporadically drops by,

perhaps because of the abbreviations,

shall be able to see it easily.

I even want all the short cuts more distinct,

than they are today.

It took about one month before I found them

Yep, that's true

So please Alex, ask if it possibly could be a short cut of it's own,

that you easily see when entering the site.

There is place enough under GOODIES for a new "button".

Than it also will be placed beside "read the full article"

Doc

I'll see if a place can be cleared (nt)

good idea Alex!
04/27/2008 - 20:38

Good idea DOC.

But it's better, IMHO, a specific tread, where Alex can add new "words".

For example, 1 month ago QdI didn't mean anything!

LH = Les Historiques :-) nt

(I Think This Is A Great Idea Doc!!!)

Thank you François for helping us!

Alex, help: in a few days, I am sure I would have forgotten the meaning of ITTIAGID!!! 

I think the list might be quite long...

YAAR !
