If you go to the "Help Center" and then "Browse Help Docs", type in "Glossary" and a list of commonly used abbreviations are there.

Welcome to PBS Janelle!

You will love it here.  It took me months to find these forums, which I love, and even longer to figure out the  "code".

May all your trades be successful and the sun shine warm upon your books!

Welcome Janelle, I remember feeling the same way; like there was a secret language I was missing out on. Before long you will be adding to you WL  (wishlist), posting notes on your TBR (To Be Read list) and complaining about the RC's (requestor conditions) just like everyone else. LOL -(laugh out loud)

 You've already found the forums--congratulations.  Lots of friendly people here.

I think the other two you will see a lot (and took me a couple weeks to figure out):

RWAP - Receieved With A Problem

TPTB - The Powers That Be (usually used in reference to the PBS Admin Team)
