    I have had numerous questions for newbies and visitors over the past months regarding various sayings and abbreviations that are distinctly RMFF in nature. And after getting the idea of a glossary from Sistine, I thought it was high time we come up w/ one for our little band.

    The most popular one I get questions on is this little ditty:

    FLOL

    Now, for those of you not involved in that little discussion (and it took place over a year ago :eek: ), that stands for Force Laugh Oout Loud. Used by the illustrious, or should I say Infamous, kitarusapien.

    Please add you own little phrases, expressions, words w/ special meaning here or whatever, as a means for bridging the gao between the newbies and the oldbies.

    Thanks

    Funny, that's what most people say, until they get the nerve to ask me. I've had at least a dozen people ask me what that meant, Tim.

    So, come one, what other RMFFisms have confused you in the past?

    I knew what it meant, but I have not idea why? Perhaps I asked before?

    YES! And I was at work when I read it and I totally yelled 'WHAT?!' to the dismay of the agents immediately around me that were on calls. -=heavy sigh=- It was quite embarassing.

    Here are a few literary ones:

    FF - Fan Fiction
    RR - Round Robin Fan Fiction (something we are in the middle of)
    AU - Alternate Universe

    and some more:

    Spoiler - anything that might give away what is going to happen in the SW movies/books/comics and any other media program/outlet we may talk about

    Spam - No, not potted meat, Sarah. ;)Unsolicited sales pitches. There will be no selling or shameless promoting. The other stuff is just clever posting [face_devil]
