I know I can’t be the only one who forgets what some of the abbreviations are here and that’s the reason I made this. It’s a Wiki so anybody can update or comment with what to add, then I will. :wink: I started off with a couple, but know there are tons more to be added. Thanks.

I’ll mention as it may matter to those in the future searching for a document like this; the correct word is acronym and not abbreviation.

Future thought, it’s possible that abbreviations will also be present and if so the title could use the word Terms and the topic’s description could contain both acronym and abbreviation.

I just need to know the exact wording and I’ll update it.

EDIT: I attempted, but gibberish is my native tongue and if it needs to be changed, let me know.
