I just joined PBS recently & I am confused over all the terminology/abbreviations that I see in the message boards.  I just wondered if someone could explain what some of them mean!

Such as:

RC
RWAP
FIFO

I'm guessing WL is Wish List....  But some of them I have no clue!

These are just a few I've seen.  Can someone help me out & if you know of other abbreviations you see on here, can you tell me what they mean also?  I would appreciate it! thank you! cheeky

RC= requestor conditions

RWAP= received with a problem

FIFO= first in, first out

One that threw me at first, TPTB.  The Powers That Be, referring to Richard and the others who work on the Website.

This list is great. I had not seen it before. I almost lost sleep over IIRC (If I recall correctly). I just figured that out a few days ago:)
