    Post Forum Abbreviations

    Just a short list of abbreviations which may help out our newer members – hopefully knowing what some of this jargon means will help to make you less timid about posting. Come on in, the Forum’s lovely :D

    This is by no means a definitive list – I don’t profess to be particularly au fait with these abbreviations as I only visit & post on one Forum :D Most of what I know I learned from here! I’m sure we can all add to it, but here are some of the more often used:

    LOL – Laugh Out Loud
    ROFL – Rolling on the floor laughing
    ROFLMAO – Rolling on the floor laughing my – ahem – ‘bottom’ off ;)
    PMSL - um, p myself laughing
    PITA - pain in the backside
    ATM – At The Moment
    IIRC – If I Recall/Remember Correctly
    IMHO – In My Humble Opinion
    IYSWIM – If You See What I Mean
    AFAIK – As Far As I Know
    TMI – Too Much Information
    HTH – Hope This Helps
    TBH - To Be Honest
    WB – Welcome Back
    WTG – Way To Go
    DH - Dear/Darling Husband
    OH - Other Half
    DS - Dear/Darling Son

    DSS - Dear/Darling StepSon
    DSD - Dear/Darling StepDaughter
    MIL - Mother In Law
    FIL - Father In Law
    SIL - Sister In Law
    BIL - Brother In Law



    With us being a crafty forum, there are also a few crafty abbreviations in fairly regular use:

    CT/CT.com – CraftTelly.com (well, d’uh!)
    ST/ST.com – ShoppingTelly (CT’s big sister…or is it brother?) which can be found here
    DB – Dawn Bibby
    SW – Steph Weightman
    MM – Michele Marsden (also sometimes Malcolm :D )
    JS – Joanna Sheen
    GGs - Glitter Girls (or Glitter Grannies, depending on if you're Dips!)
    MCS – My Craft Studio
    C&C – Create & Craft
    CAC - see above
    IW - Ideal World
    DST – Double sided tape
    BP – Brenda Pinnock
    AG - Anna Griffin
    MS - Martha Stewart
    HD - HunkyDory
    DCWV – Die Cuts With a View
    WRMK - We Are Memory Keepers
    C-A-D - CropADile
    LCS – Local Craft Shop
    CS - Cosmic Shimmer for crafty purposes, but also customer services
    PM - Papermania
    EP - Embossing Powder
    UTEE - Ultra Thick Embossing Enammel
    TSV - Today's Special Value (QVC)
    OTO - One Time Only (QVC)
    4DD - 4 Day Deal (C&C/IW)
    POW/POTW - Pick of the Week (C&C/IW)
    POD/POTD - Pick of the Day (C&C/IW)


    And some of our regular posters get shortened a lot & will answer to:

    SCW - SuperCoolWillow
    ROC - Rentochops
    RW - Rainbowwand
    LJ - Little Jan
    LC/LSC - LipstickCherry
    KWC - Kitten_with_claws

    That’s all I can think of for now…My single brain cell says it’s hurting & can it go back to sleep please…

    What a good idea! I am a moderator of another form and some of these acronyms sometimes stump me!
