Can some of you old timers(not really calling anyone old) help me and other newcomers out here. I am able to figure out some of the acronyms, nick names and slang used here on Ifish but some of them I just have no clue(dumby me?)
:whazzup: . I don't like asking as I know there have been hundreds before me asking the same question over and over and over and over and over again.

Maybe someone could place a bunch of them in "Help" like all the smile symbols. Maybe there could be an acronym/nick name/slang section. I've tried doing a search on the boards and looked in Help but came up with nothing.

Below are some examples of items I am talking about (I do know what some of them mean, just using them a examples):

URBs, ttt, RB, BTW, C&R, IMHO, nate, marked, banking it, pulls, ect...

Another thing that might be added is the locations of places that are refered to here with nicknames - like: church hole, oaktree, fishery, shad hole, drano, ect...

Or instead of placing them in help, as people hate to use help, have a web page for them and have a link(or button) for it on the main page or on the header of each page like the search topic and help buttons.

Just a thought that might help stop some of the repetative questions that I am sure some of you are tired of answering over and over...

Thanks

<grin>- Being smug, poster thinks he's clever <grin>

As far as fishing locations go, there are many holes of the same name, on different rivers. Don't be afraid to ask.

"Bump" is to the top. Or asking the question again before it goes off the 1st page.

"Mark daddy and the K-9 swizzle"

Mark and the dog.

Same as ttt, it just is a creative way to send a post to the top of the string of post's, any response to a post will move it To The Top.

CT,

And never, ever use the kid's pre-teen AOL chat smiley faces...<shudder>. Most folks grow out of them <grin>. There's going to be a ballot initiative in Novemer 2004 to ban them from all Oregon online communities.
