A pinned thread on DU codes/ abbreviations?

Last edited Mon Apr 12, 2021, 08:23 PM - Edit history (1)

We need one.

I've had 2 relatively new posters over the span of several months ask me questions about abbreviations DUers often use.
Posters can't assume everyone knows what they're referring to.

Thanks!

Edited to add:

Here are some of the most commonly used ones:

ASAP: As Soon As Possible

ATM: At The Moment

DH - dear husband or hubby

GLWT: Good Luck With That

IDC: I Don't Care

IRL: In Real Life

IDK: I Don't Know

IKR: I Know, Right

IMHO: In My Humble Opinion

IMO: In My Opinion

IIRC: If I Recall/Remember Correctly

JK: Just Kidding

nt - no text in body of post

n00b: Newbie (novice); 'noob', The use of this can be considered offensive, and as such, it should not be used to describe others.

OP: Original post/poster

QFT: Quoted For Truth

ROFL: Rolling On the Floor Laughing

TBD: To Be Determined/Decided

TBC: To Be Continued

TBH: To Be Honest


Please add to this list.

3. QFT!

Actually "nt" was the most baffling one for me to figure out when I first joined here. I thought it was "no thanks" for a while but it didn't always fit. I eventually got it.

5. Btw, I didn't intend for this to be that thread. 😋

But...it perhaps is? Just thought EarlG or a poster of some standing would take on the job.

Anyone want to start a thread on this?
