Postby Earnil » Tue Mar 22, 2005 7:21 am

messageboard MODERATORS:

By popular demand, we now have a global email account that all Moderators have access to. If you have no particular preference as to which Moderator you want to handle a particular problem, please send your complaint or comment to this address. It will ensure the fastest response possible, as we will all receive it. The first Moderator to deal with the issue will notify all others so that there is no conflict. Please do be aware that we are all real people, with real lives, and even with this new system in place, it may take some time to obtain a response. Allow for a minimum of 24 hours before repeating your request.

Here is a link to Denethors very funny thread in which members made up Middle-earth acronyms....


Here are a few examples the many acronyms:

BARAD-DUR Behold! A Really Atrocious Dude Dwells Upon Rock

SHIRE Small Hobbit-Infested Realm Enclosed

If, after viewing all the abbreviations / acronyms listed below, you still have one that you didn’t see, then you could try the three websites provided by a few TORC members, below. The websites offer very large and comprehensive lists of acronyms and abbreviations that one will see being used on the internet, and you are sure to find what you are looking for in one of them.

The first website is Netlingo: A Dictionary of Internet Words, this was provided by Earnil, and the website contains a very comprehensive listing of abbreviations, acronyms, and internet vocabulary and jargon. A very helpful website, and one that I personally recommend. Follow the link below to reach it.



The second website is Acronym Finder, and it was provided by TolkienLover. This website doesn’t provide list like the previous one, instead it allows you to search it’s database of acronyms and abbreviations for what you are looking for. Don’t be surprised if your search brings up a multitude listings in the results, the website does contain over 300,000 acronyms and abbreviations. The following link will take you to the website.



The third and final website is Chat Abbreviations, and was also provided by Earnil. This third list is actually just one page of a large website, the list itself is rather long, although it is small compared to the other two, and does in fact contain some abbreviations that I have not found in the others. I would just like to briefly mention that the website hosting the list is rather helpful overall, for learning about the internet and computers in general. Here’s the link to the page.



The following website while dedicated to netspeak, rather offers translations for netspeak and acronyms to English and vice versa, as well as translations for text messages, and it also contains an emoticon dictionary. The main purpose of the website is to offer a translations to netlingo words, however, it does contain like the other websites, a list of terms, and also a texting thesaurus. The website, like the others listed above, is very comprehensive, and it is certainly as useful as the others.

Lingo2Word – Text Message Translator, Online Lingo Dictionary

If you find this thread helpful, please visit The TORC Introduction Thread. There you will find a reference to this thread and to many others that you will find helpful. Please visit it soon.

Many thanks to all the members who helped to make this list possible!

***If you come across any more abbrevs., including abbrevs. for nicknames that are missing or any new ones that need to be added to this list please let me know, I will add them to this list.***

I would like to offer many thanks to FrodoTook for putting in so much time and effort to create this large and comprehensive list.:)

Luckily, I had a word document copy of the thread as it was before its sudden disapperance.

I consider it more smart than lucky. You created your and TORC's luck through your safeguarding a backup copy of this information. Great job Earnil. :) Very good to see you are still around. I hope all is well. :)

Those emails are all for the old address, and should probably be changed . . .

There are a few more Ringbearers to add too.

Evenstar of Imladris

Ro = Rodia

Gimli = gimli_axe_wielder

Scribbles, Scribe - SilverScribe

Tarina (I don't know if she has a nickname or not)

Elfy, Ekfy = elf-maiden

Canamarth - I don't know her nickname either

Didi - Doesn't have a nickname, but is a Ringbearer . . .

Lady_of_Rohan - Don' tknow hers either.

Andu = -|---Anduril

Possibly, though we have 3 threads at the top already for newbies to read. And at least this thread is linked by those threads. Any thoughts on this from anyone?

Earnil, I have taken the liberty of updating the opening post so that links work under the recent change (changing viewtopic > viewtopic2, and tolkienonline > theonering); and modifying the active mod list slightly. Thanks very much for maintaining this thread :)

Hmmh, I'd probably not sticky it. There's some really good info in here, but much of it goes beyond what's necessary to find your way around on the boards.

The info on the mods' names and e-mails is contained in the welcome thread.

The short forms of names is informative, but can never be complete.

There are also a lot of abbreviations included here which belong to a very specific context, and wouldn't be seen in normal posting (I think - at least I've never seen NARF and things like that).

So, if it's clearly linked to in the main info threads, I think that's fine.

What I'd suggest is to merge the valuable info of this thread with the Welcome thread, i.e. add a list of common abbreviations there, and maybe enlarge the list of Ringbearers (which I don't really know the purpose of in the first place) in that thread to include all the kind of info given here, i.e. common short forms of regularly seen usernames.

Earnil's thread could then be kept as a thread where people can post to submit their own names or new abbreviations etc.

Just a thought. :)

(Btw, I was under the impression that Alys doesn't use her Tirith addy anymore - both here and in the Welcome thread her mod e-mail is given as Tirith@theonering, but in her sig she says it's Alys@theonering.)

As long as we're talking updates, The LOML is still The LOML but the Danimal is now 5 1/2 years old. He's still m'boy though :wink:

Hey Earnil

Long time no see. How have you been?

I still appreciate your taking stewardship of this info. Could you please include me as...

FT = FrodoTook in the "Members Section" and while editing you should remove me from the "Mods Section" since I am now retired from Modding but still visit and post from time to time.

That would be cool. Hello to everyone.

I've not been in here for a while *Looks around at the welcome area* Busy as ever I see :D

Anyway. I would like to ask if you could correct my shortened name from Gloan to Gloam and could you delete Glo as well please so that my only shortened name is Gloam. :D

On a very, very boring night at work, I've found this thread, and just thought that I'd add:

Lego, Leggy for legolas the elf since he's back and posting regularly.

And also:

RT for RavenTinuviel since I saw even an old TORCer fall foul of that abbreviation not too long ago!

I don't have any abbreviations of my name! I suppose the only one could possibly be Hel but I've never seen anyone use it! :D

Oh, and Hobby for truehobbit and Hobbi for Hobbituk. :D

This is a great thread, by the way. I found out some things that I didn't know before. :)

ETA: Davey for the mouth of sauron along with the MOS that you mentioned. :)
