Hi,  I have spent the last few months following threads on this forum and have finally come out of "Lurker" mode and joined up.  While reading posts I have often had to stop and try to figure out abbreviations.  I started keeping a list of them and thought it would be helpful to newbies like me to have a Glossary to refer to.  Just a suggestion.  Great forum!!  Thanks!

That is really funny! LOL I often have to look up abbreviations on google.... The only thing is, your list does not appear to explain what the lettters mean LOL For example, FIFY I had to look up, it means Fixed It For You (I think)
Ship of Theseus - As years go by wooden parts begin to rot and are replaced by new. After a century, all of the parts have been replaced. Is the "restored" ship still the same object as the original?

Hi ggordon49!  Iv'e seen your posts on here many times - nice to meet you!  Love your troopers standing on the hood!  I didn't add the meanings because I wasn't 100% sure - figured the guys on here would be more accurate.  The only one I know for sure is BFH - as that has always been my "go to" fine adjustment tool!  I'll wait a couple days for others to weigh in and then put them in alphabetical order and add the meanings to the best of my abilities (TTBOMA?).LOL

Hi Rus!  Those are good ones!  Don't know what TLAR is though.

Hi SE Kansas!  Thanks for the link!  I'll try that one out.  Some of them are unique to here though like FCT = Fall Colors Tour.

  I always thought that was secret code and only certain ones would know what it meant so I just scroll to the next post, I think instead of trying to remember all these abbreviations I will keep scrolling.
