    Looking for canonical abbreviation list

    When I first joined, I was delighted to find the Announcement page here that listed almost every abbreviation used by members, but now when I use that link, the page has changed, the list is quite short, and is missing a bunch of abbreviations...this is the only one I can find now:

    What happened to the other one I found before? A little help would be appreciated!

    Re: Looking for canonical abbreviation list

    You may have to. I can't find it either but one of the mods started a thread a few months ago regarding an updated abbreviation list. I think it was fishnbowljoe.
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.
