Post Abbreviations
Ok, I'm going to admit here that I'm a fairly new forum visitor and MOST :doh: abbreviations I have figured out - but I just wondered if it would be worth having a list of abbreviations used in these forums for new users?

One that has got me is IYKWIM :doh: - I have sat and looked at it in context and cannot think for the life of me what is stands for ...... I know I am going to feel a right plonker when I find out, but hey - if I can't tell you gals, who can I tell right??

:doh:

Hi Tanya, I fully agree! IYKWIM = "if you know what I mean". I sat there for ages trying to work it out, in the end I had to ask too! There's another one out there that is similar but I can't think of it at the mo, I have no idea what it means at all! So you are not on your own IYKWIM :lol:
