Talk:Abbreviations

From Hattrick

Please link the full name description, not the acronym.

I think, that we should exclude abbreviations like AFAIK, IMHO, LOL, etc. For those we can refer to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_slang



I have a question regarding the inclusion of Federation acronyms in this list, should them be allowed? In my opinion they should be kept out of the list, since they are not used as widely as the "universal" abbreviations (WO, GM, MOD, FW, ...); it would be hard to tell the line between a "know federation that enters this list" and a "highly popular federation, but not enough for the list". I also think abbreviations such as LOL, BTL, ROFL should not be included, since they are not specific to Hattrick. I see this list as a list of HT-specific acronyms that are accepted by the majority of HT-users.--duno7 21:37, 25 November 2005 (UTC)


I agree federations and forum-slang should be kept out,


I've taken it upon myself to split this into letters. This will help when the list of acronyms starts to get a bit longer, or if someone is looking for an acronym and only can remember the starting letter.

I would like to remove the table of contents, as this is quite obvious. This can be done with __NOTOC__ --GM-Lau 12:54, 30 November 2005 (UTC)

We should come to agreement on how to use Capitols. For instance there's HOL and DotS in the list. (Shouldn't that be DitS?) I propose only to use Capitols for abbreviations. --ukelele 09:13, 2 December 2005 (UTC)


It's probably one of those things that varies from conference to conference. It's always HoL and DotS on newbie (English) for example. Dancing rob 12:05, 2 December 2005 (UTC)
