I've been on BF since May of this year and mainly read/post to the fifty+ forum. What I was wondering is there any central forum or sticky for acronyms that are often used in messages?
I often see ones like this:
BF - Bikeforums
OP - Original Poster (creator of a thread)
HTFU - OK I looked that one up
The 41 - I think it refers to the road cycling forum?
YMMV - Looked up also
FRED - ??
CF - carbon fiber
Ti - titanium
and I see many more.
So has anyone compiled a semi-complete list? I'm an engineer by trade so can spit out technical acronyms with the best of me but I think some posters assume everyone understands.
Maybe it would be a good idea to have a contest to see what the longest comprehensive post could be with the use of acronyms?
What does everyone think? I can imagine some of the replies I'll get to this thread; so be kind And don't tell me to HTFU I'm working on it....
