    I reckon there should be a sticky with a web-speak dictionary

    I didn't know till I read a similar thread a while back. Some phrases I google. Top hit for "ftw" is Urban Dictionary

    And the name of the thread is screwy

    It means 'for the win' so something you are in favour of. I haven't seen it around that much lately, maybe it's dying out..

    It doesn't hurt to google something before you post a thread.

    ^^ Anything you see on the internet that looks to be slang, just put it into that website and you'll find out what it means.. It's quite funny looking at some of the crap people have come up with as well.

    A simple search in urban dictionary or even just google is all you need to do. No abbreviations used on TSR are not already used widespread on the internet. The only exception to this I can think of is for forum names such as Health and Relationships is called H&R.
