I like referring to certain forum members by acronyms and nicknames.  It gives me a feeling of jovial familiarity that I like, and I figured I'd record them here for reference.  Not all of these are currently active.

2πr = Second Aristh (It works because his avatar is the symbol pi)
AA = AcornArmy
EMcB = Electric MacButters (RL friend)
LML = LogicMouseLives
ME = Myyrdn Eopia
TCF = TheCuriousFan

Nicknames:
neuro = the neurovore of Zur-En-Aargh
Prisc, The Goddess = Priscellie, (Some also use cellie)
The Count = 1234567890blah
The Quackers = Ms Duck
Waldorf = Shecky

Other:
Fred or Fred Hicks = iago (site owner/admin)

I also think it sounds like a good notion. Also, it's actually 123456789blaaa. No 0, no h, and 2 more a's  ;).

I also noticed your trimming of the dictionary. Thank you for that. It seemed so bloated and if it wasn't for my laziness I'd probably have gone through it and suggested a potential trimming myself  ;D.
 
Sounds like a very good notion. Voting in favor of the additions.

I don't think I've seen you around lately. Is this just my imagination or have you been offsite for a while (I mostly frequent the DF Spoilers and DFRPG sections so maybe you only haven't been visiting those lately?)?
Please, call me Count :).

Thanks go to Shecky for the nickname and Serack for the avatar ^,..,^

The thing is, that list is more attuned to me specifically.  Even I haven't used AA more than once or twice this year (probably more times in these 2 posts than the rest of the past year all together).

I'll consider splicing it in, but I'm not sure of the best way to go about doing it, and I would be more comfortable if others contributed to it first.

I also think it sounds like a good notion. Also, it's actually 123456789blaaa. No 0, no h, and 2 more a's  ;).

Heh, ok, I fixed it.

There was little trimming, and a bit of organizing.  But yah, I agree that it was an improvement :)

She hasn't been around much lately, I actually pinged her a couple months ago to say hi because of that.  You can check someone's post history in their profile by the way.

Thanks, Count, yes, I've been off the forum more than on these past several months. Time demands and all that.
(But when I'm not here, I do miss you guys.)

"No! I'm not dropping the shield until Harry says it's okay." She paused. "Uh, besides. I'm not sure how."

To add to the list SoI = Spirit of Intellect

I find myself using the term "nemfected" a lot lately.  Short for someone infected by Nemesis.

If I get a second to the nomination, I'll add it to the dictionary.

Do it.

I'd also add N-fected as a possible alternative.

Nfection = Nemesis infection

I already predicted the use of the term Nfection/N-fection/N-fected. They have all be used.

This is why I wanted feedback.  I figured it was likely that there were other versions that were getting play.

I know, just wanted to confirm my ability to see into the future.  ;D  ;)

might want to add Yrrah - Mirror Mirror Harry - to the list, otherwise some people are going to get confused  and think that they are talking about someone from the Old Testament.

I just added:

RaFO = Read and Find Out (I believe originally sourced from Robert Jordan when people asked him for hints about the Wheel of Time)
