Acronyms...HELP!

    Day two on Muppet Central... or MC as I finally figured out! I have been reading so many posts and trying to learn so much, but I am extremely confused about many of the Acronyms that are used here.

    Some are quite easy to figure out, and others, unless you have been here a long time are just plain confusing! I started this thread in hopes that some of you could enlighten us newbies (or muppet babies) what these are and what they stand for.

    Maybe there is a thread about this someplace, and I just have not found it yet.

    Thanks!
    Nick

    A lot of the acronyms are Muppet Movies or Muppet people. For instance,
    JHC is the Jim Henson Company, TMM is The Muppet Movie, and MWoO is Muppet Wizard of Oz. Guess what AVMMCM is ;)

    Which ones specifically were confusing you?

    There was a thread 'bout this here awhile back... let me see if I can find it.

    Wait, there is only one page here. I'm guessing everything gets deleted in this forum?

    Nope. But it only shows pages from a certain period of time, and people don't start many new ones here, so they dissapear. You'll have to change settings or do a search.

    Ouch!

    Oh that is a tough one! Hmmmm I figured JHC, and a couple others... but there are a few I had no idea about... including the one above! I can't remeber the one I saw that prompted this thread... I think it was TMOC or something to that effect. When I find it again I will repost it!

    Ahhh... it was T*K*O which when I looked at it is a drama or MC sitcom... Guess I need to sit down and read the whole thing!

    BUT, unfortunately, my Complete book of Puppetry and Puppet Planet came in the mail from Amazon... so I will not be reading much on MC now ( meaing in the next 3 or 4 hours!)... as I am going to the store to pick up supplies and make a quickie puppet for my class tomorrow!

    I will post a pic here (if that is allowed) when I finish it!

    Nick... and yes, that is my real name... I am so un-creative (if that is a real word)

    Hi Nick and welcome to the craziness that surrounds us here at MC or Muppet Central.
    T*K*O stands for The Thread Killers Organization, which started with an explanative thread of its own before branching out into the various MC sitcom episodes.
    AVMMC, or IAVMMCM which would be it's full acronymized title, stands for It's A Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie (though personally in m Muppet Listings threads it's shortened to just VMMCM).
    If you have trouble with any other acronyms, frm a list and post it here or contact any one of us and we'll help you out. Also, be sure to dig up a thread in the Friends & Family section titled the Muppet Central Dictionary which contains terms handy for new members surviving on these wacky forums.

    BBB: Bill Baretta Borrowers
    RHLC: Richard Hunt Lover's Club

    MC: Muppet Central

    Thanks Nick. And Bo, you certainly are a strange weird bunch over at that SWAEHB... Especially since you rote his name wrong. And to think, you're the second mate of that group. For shame, Sis'll have to dock your bagel pay again.

    Oh and Nick... A couple of other MC rules.
    You need to have 10 posts before you're able to post links or send some other member a private message (PM).
    Photos can't be posted here on the forum, except for two loopholes:
    1 You make said photo/picture your avatar, custom sizing the photo to fit the avatar size parameters.
    2 You have some photo hosting website like Image Bucket host your pics, and then after you have 10 posts you can post a link to the site and the photo specifically you want to show off.

    Hope this helps, have fun exploring the rest of the forums.

    Just noticed there are a lot of May's on my posting rules... and only one may not which is post attachments... oh well.

    I could not find a ride to the craft store... I almost cut up the cushion from one of my IKEA Chairs... OMG I am a puppet Junkie! is there a thread for that?

    Ok back to reading my books and doing Laundry.

    Wow! I was actually chatting with 2 of the Four Horsemen! Yowza!

    Thanks Mrs Pepper, as you can see... I was studying my MCD and found out about The Four Horsemen... Oh I think I am catching on!

    **WOOT**

    Four horsemen? Andjust who might those be? Anyway, the attachments thing goes to what I was talking about as to your inquiry about posting pics here Nick. Sounds like you should head on to the Puppetry section of the forums, where there are a lot of threads on making and showing off custom-made puppets.

    Well MrsPepper gave me a link to the Dictionary... and I found the following...

    The Four Horseman (n) - The Four Members with 10,000+ Posts ( KTS, Beau, Fozzie Bear and the Count)

    I did the copy paste thing... did not know how to bring it here as a quote...
    Oy Gevalt, I'm so ferklempt that I could plotz! I am once again talking with the Count! :)

    Oh... That... Wasn't aware of that entry. Anyway, we'll have to change it soon, Snowths and Prawny are nearing the 9K mark. And I'm glad that you're having a positive experience here, cause we've had some negative ones and it's much better for the place when someone new comes along and has something positive to contribute. Like I said, have fun exploring the rest of the forums.
