IL2,FB,AEP,PF,BoE,CoE......
How about doing away with FB & AEP and settling on FB2.0.... I know its a minor issue but sometimes it gets confusing. Ive seen the AEP called the EAP,the EP, PAE all kinds of stuff. I often dont know whether or not to call it just AEP or theAEP...... I like FB2.0. What do you guys think? That will just leave us with IL2,2.0,PF,BoB,BoE&CoE. Oooops I gotta scoot...... I owe.. I owe.. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

Agreed - I think it was mentioned earlier by me in another thread in PF forum.. someone was confused about release date for BoB..

FB2.0 is good.. but what about BOE v BOB?..
guess we'll just have to fly more and post less until we forget all about it.hahah

Being a Marine intelligence analyst for four years, I"m all to used to acronyms. But Bearcat, I agree. It gets insane...I guess the problem lies in the computer generation mentality to a degree. Why type something out when I can BRB, or LOL, or ROLFLMAO and all that...That's the first time I've ever written those things...

Anyway, I get off on a tangent easily these days. FB2.0 it is from me.

ROLFLMAO? ROLFLMAO? What the hell does that mean? I have only just figured out what BTW means. Can anyone direct me to a glossary of internet chat-acronyms?

It should be "ROFLMAO" - Rolling On the Floor Laughing My A$$ Off

A combination of ROFL and LMAO.

Correct - AEP is actually FB 2.0.
FB is still FB but ppl are so so about the addon.

Put it in the FAQ.

AFAIK all people calls AEP rightlly, with or without FB, or IL2.

IMHO acronyms are very usefull, if I only know what they means...

Yea, I call it FB2.0, that's what the screen says.

BTW, What DDT says is right, try LOMAC for lots of acronyms. The only thing worse is a book I've just recently picked up, "Grumman F-14 Tomcat" by David Baker. It's filled with so many acronyms for Navy/government testing, manufacturing, compatibilty, maintenance, and budgeting commities that it has a guide to what 30 or so of them stand for, right in the opening pages of the book. http://www.geocities.com/adlabs6/B/bin/1/veryhappy.gif

While we're at it, can we change the acronym for PF. It's confusing for our squad! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I think Pacific Fighters should be called the Fighters of the Pacific Front of Operations involving the British, Japanese and US or IL2 FB AEP TFOFPFOITBJAUS for short.

I don't believe this will suit the ******s who commonly use 'words' like u and ne1, but how about we drop our lazy streak and type IL-2 Sturmovik, IL-2 Sturmovick Forgotten Battles, IL-2 Sturmovik Forgotten Battles: Ace Expansion Pack, Pacific Fighters, etc? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
