defender has been kind enough to install for us a automatic acronym explainer.
When you type in the commonly used acronyms (in CAPS) a mouseover will reveal the acronyms meaning.

Everyone say, "thanks defender!"

If you see any acronyms that arent already in the system, (check this list: http://www.cheapassg...opic.php?t=2244 ), post it here.

IMO, this is cool!

Neither does IMO. WTF?

This is a great idea and all, and not to bust Defender's chops, but why am I seeing the acronyms posted above as normal acronyms? They are appearing as they always do. Am I simply misunderstanding what he did?

let your mouse pointer rest over the acronym for a second, then a box will pop up describing it

I love it, but every time you idiot proof something, a bigger idiot comes along.

I doubt it'll help stop the "What's YMMV mean?" threads, but at least now we have new grounds for flaming them when they do. :twisted:

Now that, my friend, is a shared moment.

You guys should consider adding this to the lowercase acros as well cause I am not going to put "imo" in caps just so someone can see what it means.

An acro is an acro whether upper or lowercase.

Then there's also a conflict with DOA the sale term, and Dead Or Alive, the video game...

I dont think individual games will be given acronyms within this system. It's mostly for the lingo of the web and deals forums.

I am sure CheapyD will be adding a ton of them as we go along.

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"

Those words should just be left out of the acrobot. I talk about PCs a lot and It will be annoying for it to show up as something I am not meaning everytime.
