Default Re: GURPS Forum Abbreviations: help the newbies?

IDHMBWM is used on nongaming boards and email groups too, but it's pretty intimidating if you haven't seen it before. I think it's a good idea. RAW drove me crazy for a while - in the context I first kept seeing it, it sounded like a specific book or FAQ or something ("That isn't in the RAW", "According to the RAW..."). So even non-newbies get thrown sometimes. Maybe we could put links to commonly-ressurrected thread topics, too. I think many would be grateful.

How about starting a list here? If it starts looking useful, we can worry about stickiness later.
