MRCD. MRCT. And kind of obvious but GPS. FW (firmware). FCC.

Don't forget RDF. ;)

Reading up and trying to learn a few things before I ask questions. Most of the acronyms have a short description with a link to a wiki that I can't see (I get 404 errors). Is that because of my noob status? I will say it makes it a bit harder to learn the ropes, but I understand the policy.

They're just broken links. Ask around on the forum if you don't know what something means and I am sure people will answer.

Okay ladies and gentlemen. I am going to get us an addon that pretty much supercharges the intention of this thread. Example:

Does anyone want to be a part of the team that moderates the list of keywords that are linked/defined like this?

Very cool! I'm probably not the best person to help out, but I think the concept is great and I'd be a big user. I'll help out if I can.

Did I miss it or is ED not on the list? And no, not that ED, but Escargot Drive.

On the RDF to-do list is the installation of an addon which will help with the goals of this thread, by automatically creating tooltips for acronyms you guys specify. More details on that when the time comes but keep 'em coming.

Great idea, that will be another nice added feature!

I am assuming it will still need a Mods approval before going live to keep the shenanigans to a minimum so things like RCH, HMFIC, and LBFM don't start showing up in the List?
