A list of acronyms has been added to the FAQ section

We have assembled a list of commonly-used acronyms on Aquarium Advice. The list can be found here, in the FAQ section:

Aquarium Advice - Aquarium & Reef Forum - FAQ: Acronyms and Abbreviations

To find the list from any page on the forum, click "FAQ" on the navigation bar (the one that begins with Forums, User CP, etc.). Click on "Acronyms and Abbreviations" at the bottom of the screen, and then on "Commonly used abbreviations on Aquarium Advice" at the bottom of the screen. You'll be taken to the acronym list.

At this time the acronyms do not appear in a pop-up window as you hover your mouse over them in the text. We realize that was a popular feature in the old phpBB software but as the forum was migrated to the new vBulletin software, that feature was lost. If it is possible to restore that feature in this software, we will install it as soon as possible.

Wow thats a lot of abbreviations. I noticed quite a few that are used often that would confuse many people new to the forum. Hopefully its possible to have the ability of an explanation when you mouse over it. Once this post goes away I doubt someone will be able to find where the list of acronyms is located.

That's a good point about the thread going away, figiwigi. I have just made the thread a sticky so it will always be at the top of the Community Help forum.

Maybe you should add ARLC: African Rift Lake Cichlid

I see that quite a bit.

The good news is that vbulletin can utilize the feature. Hope you guys can get it up and running soon.
