Hi
as a new volunteer one hurdle has been deciphering the many acronyms. (Just figured out that MW means Magic Window :). How about compiling a FAQ entry with all the different acronyms for quick reference?
Cheers
André

Oh, I should probably say that the "FAQ" link on the forums pages is only generic forum FAQs. I don't believe we can customize it to add all our LV-specific information. All that stuff is in the wiki, linked in dark gray header.

I was thinking more of a acronym reference, which could work as a quick reference,, bute glossary page is a big help. You guys are great. Thanks. I need to check the wiki page more thoroughly.
Cheers

Hi Andre. Yes, we speak and type in jargon and naturally it is a mystery to new people. Some of it is explained in my video about those on our forum: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PnxpcbnEjoQ&feature=youtu.be Our wiki is the best source of course.

This may be a bit old now but I'm working on a brand new 2018 version.
