Guide to weird forum abbreviations!

Recommended Posts

Does anyone else not like Comm as an abbreviation for Community? It rubs me the wrong way for some reason.

I was thinking CF for Community Forum, but that's just me.

How about Commie?

:lol:

Okay, that sells it. "Comm" should be the abbreviation for Community, just so its denizens can be called "Commies".

EDIT: Or "ComDisc", as was suggested in the other thread.

I'm pretty sure "Bump" is an acronym for Bring Up My Post.

Backronym, actually. Bump was just a word first, then people decided to turn it into an acronym. And you can make it recursive too, as Bump Up My Post.

I guess you all missed the most obvious one :

OCR : OverClocked ReMix

Here are the other ones I can think of...

shittyjudgefgt : Quite self-explanatory...

WIP:O : Works In Progress : Other. Former name of the Non-ReMixes forum. (probably won't be used a lot anymore, though... well, it wasn't used a lot to begin with, actually)

CMC, TOMC, PRC, ORC, FLMC, OVGMC... stuff that usually ends with -RC (Remix Competition) or -MC (Music Competition) : Various contests more or less regularly held in Comwhatever (formerly GenDisc) as a lack of a dedicated forum yet.

EDIT :

12. OLR (OverLooked ReMix)

A site dedicated to mixes that were denied by the judges panel and/or removed from OC ReMix for one reason or another.

I think that's OC ReMoved you're talking about. OLReMixes are bad on purpose, and most of them would never had made it past the DJP auto-rejection email.

Can I get some short background info on ReMix:thaSauce and kwed.org? Were they started by members or what? Just something for the writeup. Thank you.

R:tS was founded by Ramaniscence and other members of the VG ReMix community news site ThaSauce, and was originally an April Fool's Joke, but became legit later. It's pretty similar to OCR, with the most major difference being the loosened restrictions on quality control.

kwed.org is a site which specializes in remixes from Commodore 64 games. Pretty sure it was around before OCR.

nice thread!

you have pretty much anything and everything I've ever seen on that list. only thing I can think of adding would be abbreviations for game consoles or very common games. but I dont think thats really in the spirit of the thread.

Bumping this.

Also, requesting definition for SOL and maybe a sticky.

SOL: Shit Outta Luck

Sticky: A special thread not bound by the laws of gravity, ergo, it does not fall down the page when not posted in. This is because it sticks to the top.
