Hello. This may sound stupid but could someone maybe make a thread that explains what abbreviations mean within the forum? For instance what does NB- Gone mean? That's the one I can note off the top of my head. I never used forums much in my 28 years of internet using. Just occasionally. And yup I googled NB -Gone lol didn't get a clear answer.
Thanks in advance

We did have a thread that provided a list of abbreviations but I checked and it seems to be unavailable. Unfortunately the people who purchased this forum from Jorats a few years ago deleted a lot of threads that were consulted but not added to. Thank you for bringing it to our attention.

Maybe people could add abbreviations to this thread and I will compile them into a list
