Might be worth adding "Nex" to the list, at least for a while. It's been phased out of the game, but I doubt many people are going to go back and edit it out of their posts.

DragonRidingSorceress is an Author of good standing. Mostly good standing. She's happy to accept any social action except Photographer and Loitering, but requests warnings before duping/poisoning/etc.

Seeker of Names is a... being with an obsession. They're willing to accept all invitations.
One who seeks to know all that is and may be. One who dances in the silence of the void. One whose fantasies make the reality come alive.

Could you add BoHB and LoN? I have no idea what these mean, and don't want to risk spoilers by saying where I found them, but they were presented as if we should know what they are ^_^

BoHB - Book of Hidden Bodies
LoN - Liberation of the Night

[spoiler] I think I know where you saw them and that is one place where abbreviations are very useful [/spoiler]

Sorry RL means I am not a very active player at the moment. No social actions unless you are prepared to wait and definitely no sparring or other mult-action things.

No Calling Cards or boxed cats please. Will take dupes on the affluent photographers. Other social invitations welcome. Parabolan Kittens usually available, send me an in-game social action saying you want one and I will get one to you as soon as possible.

Much thanks!

[spoiler]And yes, it's very likely you know exactly where found those, given how currently-relevant it is Big Grin As nifty as such a thing is, I think you've just helped me make my decision, too.[/spoiler]

ES: Exceptional Stories
FL: Fallen London
IRC: The FL internet relay chat
IU: Identities Uncovered
Cecil: Cecil
SFiG: often abbreviated just 'SFiG' as opposed to 'USFiG'
SotC: often abbreviated with the lower case
SS: Sunless Sea
ToL: Taste of Lacre
WoW: War of Assassins

Also, would it be too much to ask for you to update your posts so that the formatting is consistent?

For example you've got these formats all right next to each other:

One occasionally sees "farm" instead of "grind" when referring to gaining resources. Very typical in some venues, it might be puzzling to a newbie.

Will do all socials except Loitering or Private Evenings (all my Free Evenings are accounted for), and Affluent Photographer Betrayals only, please. I am not currently accepting calling cards.

Ah, the pointless nit-pick. I suppose it is to be expected as forums get bigger.

This is an artefact of different alphabet posts getting updated/started at different times. That said, "=" means "this is what an acronym stands for". Most of the XXX = Xyz Xyz Xyz entries then have colons and definitions.

As much as I dislike the way you've asked, I have gone through and standardised the formatting. Be politer in future.

I was indeed trying to be polite, apologies. Which is why I phrased it "would it be too much to ask", I meant that as a literal question not rhetorical passive aggressiveness.

I didn't even realise you were using different punctuation marks to convey different things, so apologies for the nit-pick if you still percieve one.

I'll have to put it down to tone not being conveyed well in text.

Glossary is up to date.
