    Glenn suggested making a VH glossary with terms and acronyms that we use on here, so I've done some preliminary work in setting it up. You can view the glossary from the link at the top of any forum page. It is a work in progress and needs a lot more stuff, but you guys can at least get a feel for it, and please point out things that are missing, terms that should be in there.

    Enjoy!

    Dude, Brett, you have MTM twice...
    Does that make that REALLY important?

    Ah, something else hit me... how about stuff like:

    SGMAD - Somebody Get Me a Doctor
    INSG - I Never Said Goodbye

    And hell, if you want to show the flavor you can always have the explination of what EUAS and UFF mean to someone who is a casual visitor...

    EUAS - Eat Us And Smile, a pro Dave group
    UFF - Up Front Fanatics, a pro Sammy group

    Dunno...

    Oops, fixed the MTM thing. I guess every song has an acronym if it's more than one word, not sure I should include every one though. I guess I should. Also with regards to UFF and EUAS, I know you guys think they should be in there glossary, but it's not really a VH thing, more of a site thing, so I'm not going to include them. I know casual visitors won't know what they mean, but no offense to you guys, but I'm not sure I want them to know.

    Hey Brett, just sent you an email. I don't see the Van Halen Encyclopedia on the glossary list. Looks good my friend.

    That was a great idea!

    Hey, little typo, it's "Can't Get This Stuff No More," not "Can't Get THAT Stuff No More"

    People can figure out these things on their own, but some other "Internet abbreviations" that I see a lot are:

    BTW - by the way
    TIA - thanks in advance
    FWIW - for what it's worth

    How about PPV-pay per view?

    Brett, did you get that email I sent you about the 5150 code? I thought that was California, but the list says New York.

    Glenn, oh yeah, well I read somewhere that is the NY code, not the CA code. I'll have to look it up again.
