Acronyms - Needing a well maintained list

I really enjoy TFL, but is there a list of commonly used acronyms posted anywhere? I have been unable to find such. I often know that I'm missing significant content because I don't know the acronyms used. My recreation time is precious and I'd rather just go someplace else rather than needing to exit tapatalk, go to a web browser, head to acronym finder, study up, and sometime later get back to the thread. Since I'm most always finger browsing on my phone or tablet that kind of exercise is way too time consuming.

I believe a sticky post, well maintained (with acronyms in one post, in alphabetical order), and placed in a prominent location would serve the forums well.

Thank you,
Andrew

Thank you! I don't remember seeing it when I signed up (and I always read directions, seriously). It is odd that when I searched for "acronyms" it didn't come up in the search results.

But no matter, I will read it now.

Thanks again,
Andrew

Another location to look for them is in the "Library" up in the menu bar. The "local" list might even be a bit larger than the FAQ list.
