    Hello,

    Relatively new member, and pouring over the forums and classifieds I have come across several abbreviations that I am unfamiliar with.

    Can anyone provide a glossary of some of them for better understanding and use?

    Some (but not all are)
    Bump
    TTT
    just to name a couple. Any others and they definition would be helpful
    thanks
    Mighty man

    When browsing the forums they are listed in order of posting time (newest to oldest). "Bump" and "TTT (To the Top)" are just to move the posting back up to the top of the list so people see it easier. Bump and TTT are mainly used in the classified sections.
