On request, here's a list of the cryptic abbreviations that are frequently used in the forums. Did I miss one? No doubt. Post here, and I'll add it (and delete your post when I've added it)!

In the library they have a similar thread: Common abbreviations used here explained for newbies made by Angel Floris_V.

Edited by Nojd: I have no idea what I'm deleting here, but foul language or not, it's definitely not English. These boards are supposed to be in English only.

Be glad you don't Berend.

Kavera_Bach: foul language isn't allowed on this forum, even if it's in Portuguese. It's against the Code of Conduct:

Quoted from HG Code of Conduct:

The following actions constitute a violation of the Code of Conduct:
...
15. Using expressions that are considered foul, vulgar, sexually harassing, racially offensive, or in any way discriminatory.

I won't translate what K_Bach posted but I hope that either he or some moderator edits it out of his post.

Besides, this forum is in English and there's no need for Portuguese abbreviations.

Thank you, and happy forumming.

*frantically jumps up and down to get Nojd's attention... *

Or do you think the ones I mentioned aren't used that often?

I'm just lazy, and not feeling the need to update the first post here immediately. All suggested abbreviations are available in the posts below it, and while those are few they're almost as easy to find there as in the first post.

*sits back in comfy chair (not Josh's)*
