Would it be possible to set it up so that we can choose whether or not to use the CAG Acronym filter when we post, just like we can turn off the parsing for bbcode and smilies?

Now that, my friend, is a shared moment.

But that's what I'm talking about, if I refer to DOA the game, it comes up as "dead on arrival" and if you have PC mean Player's Choice, every time someone asks about PC games it'll say "Player's Choice"


To be completely honest, that didn't cross my mind. Never mind, then.

Would it be possible to set it up so that we can choose whether or not to use the CAG Acronym filter when we post, just like we can turn off the parsing for bbcode and smilies?


If they add that, "on" should definitely be the default. That way, we won't have to tell the stupid newbies to turn it on while we're flaming them. Saves us all time. :D

ah, a voice of logic in the form of a walrus

this is going to have serious issues.. IMHO


I don't undestand why Cheapy is including acro's like that as it will only lead to confusion and annoyances. The acrobot should be limited to acro's that are directly related to deals and/or business like TRU.

Cheapy should also try to get the acrobot to work when you preview a message.

Gameplay is what makes a game worth playing - not story or graphics

Is this working properly on all browsers? It works fine for me, and I know them anyway, but the upcoming TRU BOGO sale has at least 3 different people asking what they mean. They refuse to read the thread since it's mentioned multiple times but maybe they can't see the underline and explanation. I'm hoping they're not that ignorant.
