We are toying with the idea of a "glossary" of sorts for acronyms/abbreviations that people new to the forums often do not understand. What acronyms/words do you:

A) think come up often enough to warrant inclusion?


And/or

B) perhaps don't understand fully yourself, or would like clarification on?

I'll start with the basics:

PAW- Post-Apocalyptic World
TEOTWAWKI- The End of The World As We Know It
SHTF- Shit Hits The Fan (i.e. worst-case scenario, perhaps leading to a PAW or TEOTWAWKI).

BO...- Bug Out/Bail Out. Basically 'get the hell outta dodge' when bad stuff happens. BO can be attached to a variety of letters in this manner (e.g. BOB, BOL, etc.)
BOB- Bug Out Bag (AKA "go bag"). In essence, your means of carrying your survival equipment. Military style "assault packs", Hiking backpacks are examples.
BOL- Bug Out Location. Your planned destination if something goes down. Optimally, you've already got it stocked with what you'll need in a crisis.
BOV- Bug Out Vehicle (less commonly it can mean Bug Out Vest for those who choose vests over bags). Your means of travel to your BOL/through the wasteland that our world has become.

LEO- Law Enforcement Officer
MIL- short for Military, either as a descriptive term for gear or a current/former member of the military.

ZS- Zombie Squad. Both the overall name of the Organization and a denotation under the username of the "core" members in St. Louis who started it all.
ZS-R- Zombie Squad Reserves. A denotation of under the username of those who have completed an application.
***- Asterisks under a username indicate the number of posts a user has made; the more asterisks, the more posts.
Avatar- in case you are new to this here innernet, it's an optional picture that appears under your username.

Don't forget RAL-Romeo Alpha Lema meaning Re-Animated Lifeform (Zombie).

To be distinguished from "ZS Donor 'NOLA" ... I have to admit, when I came back on Tuesday, I had no idea what that was supposed to mean. So much stuff happens when I go away for a weekend.

At least I think NOLA stands for No One Left Alive, if not, it does now!

Not really an acronym... but shorthand, sort of:

Has "I love zombies" replaced +1, meaning "I agree with the comment previously posted"? If so, I must have missed the memo announcing that change.

I think it was 'cause kyle hates "+1" so he had it auto filtered.

I tend to use ZPAW (zombie PAW), HoZ (Holdout zone) and BOZ (bug-out zone) a lot, so if anyone's wondering what they mean in any of my posts, there it is.

No, he said he would do that, but the filter can't handle the "+" sign, so we just did it to mess with him and the newbies.
