The EB Glossary

He always has bold green text, so does he just add it on every single post? I would like bold blue (as in this and my most recent posts), and would like to know if I can get it without adding it to each post individually. Now don´t call me lazy, I´m just asking. :grin:

Thanks.

There isn't any special way, and I really don't think it's necessary. I personally find using bold and coloured font obnoxious.

I think JCC colours each post individually.

The staff strongly discourage the use of bolded, non-standard coloured text. Blue is probably even worse on the eyes than dark green.

Oh.. Okay, sorry. I won´t use it then. :blush:

I know you figured out your initial question but in case anyone searches for this. There is a pinned thread at the top of this forum called the EB glossary with all of these LEGO terms.

Haha, thanks for that BigCam, I've always wanted to know what some of those terms meant. It's an unfortunate coincidence that LURP can also be taken inappropriately.

EDIT: I move that we make CCP a term. CCP=Cheap chinese Plastic

Since the topic creator has found the meaning of "AFOL", I shall lock this topic. Thanks.

Problem is that also means forum moderator, and someone is just as likely to use the other context. Both need to be added. Since Mini is in there, how about Midi: Smaller than System-Scale, Larger than Mini-Scale.

On an aside, I thought SHEFOL was Shemale Fan Of Lego :grin:

While we're suggesting themes, 'HP' (Harry Potter) isn't in the Glossary either. I also notice that 'Duplo' and 'Quatro' are listed, but 'Primo' isn't. 'Dacta' might be a good addition as well.

Don't forget MB (Mega Bloks)...

Speaking of themes, it's occurred to me that many terms commonly used in the Star Wars Forum such as BP (Battle Pack), TCW (The Clone Wars), and RGS (Republic Gunship) are also absent from the Glossary. The same can be said for SSD (Super Star Destroyer) and ISD (Imperial Star Destroyer).

Perhaps BL (Bricklink), BS (Brickshelf), FBTB (From Bricks to Bothans), and TBB (The Brothers Brick) should be added as well, since they are mentioned quite frequently on these boards...
