    Once upon a time there was a thread started by Red_Oktober, I thought it would be good to make another one of these for the newbies. This thread helped me a lot too actually. If I forgot any, just post them. All of these I got from the old thread, so there may be doubles or = rather than : or things like that.


    JC: Jedi Council
    JCF: Jedi Council Forum/s
    LOL: Laugh out loud
    LMAO: Laugh my @$$ off
    BRB: Be Right Back
    AFK: Away from keyboard
    GL: George Lucas
    ROFL - Rolling on Floor Laughing
    LA - LucasArts
    GTG - gotta go
    BTW: By the way
    FF - fan force
    MTFBWY - May the force we with you!
    IMO: In my opinion.
    IMHO: In my honest opinion
    OMG: Oh my gosh
    SW= Star Wars
    GA: Go Away
    YSTHH: You stink to high heaven
    HAT : How about this
    LOL- Laugh Out Loud
    ROTFLMAO - Rolling On The Floor Laughing My Ass Off
    [v.1] Version 1
    [v.2] Version 2 (and so on)

    Movies:

    Star Wars- SW
    The Phantom Menace: TPM
    Attack of The Clones: AOTC
    Episode 3: Ep. 2, HTTE, #3
    A New Hope: ANH, SW
    The Empire Strikes Back: ESB, TESB
    Return of The Jedi: ROTJ


    Almost every forum has it's abbreviation, just put the first letters of the names and you will get the name.

    Expanded Universe Community = EUC


    Many thanks to all the people that posted in the old thread who came up with most of these abbreviations.



    Edit Morgaine: Removed a few abbreviations that are no longer allowed here.

    Yeah, good job -Lord-Vader-. Although a word of advice to any of the new posters here. Abbreviations are good and all but just don't overdo it. What I mean is don't make half you responses to someone be filled with abbreviations. :) Use them, but use them wisely.

    It also makes it a pain in the rear to read sometimes. At the very least, it may cause confusion when you use too many abbreviations, because the other person may interpret some of them wrongly, especially the less popular ones. :)

    Nice thread. :)

    I've got a huge list of abbreviations somewhere, I'll try to type them up and add them to the list some time. ;)

    And very good advice in the two posts above me. :D
