    jargon

    The use of unexplained jargon has stopped me using this site.
    I just don't understand it. I haven't found the site user friendly. Even now I don't know where this message will end up.

    There are a few abbreviations I suppose that are commonplace at large on the internet, but honestly they are quickly learnt.... I am presuming you are new to the internet? Please do ask and welcome, if you cannot work things out just ask and any mistakes you make can soon be sorted by Graham or Pauline.

    Couple of common abbreviations

    LOL = lots of laughs
    ROTFL = Rolls on the floor laughing

    And now my mind has gone a complete blank

    Also you successfully said hello, so , can I ask what camping unit you use?

        Firstly, Hello January

        I'm really surprised by your post, I think this forum has a very low amount of jargon compared to most others. I occasionally use forum related to gardening, bird watching and my car and they all contain a lot more jargon than here.

        Anyway, the best thing about this forum is the friendly people on it! If there is something you don't understand, just ask. We won't laugh, ignore, berate or belittle you - everyone is here to help.

        We've all asked daft questions, well I know I have anyway and I'm sure everyone else will think they have too ( I've read some of them, don't let them tell you otherwise!!!!)

        If your posts ends up in the wrong place, don't worry, Graham and Pauline will move it and then send round the heavies to collect payment for their time....joking....it will end up in the right place.

        If it helps, how about we try a jargon buster thread somewhere?? Off the top of my head, the only jargon that is sometimes used on here other than the abreviations roamingsue mentioned are related to types of equipment or specific motorhomes/caravans/awnings. c15,hylo, hi-top, dimension, kip, movelite etc....

        Don't give up on the forum, if you are a camper/caravaner/motorhomer or a wannabe any of the above, you will be more than welcome to join in the chatter and hopefully meet up with us at some point.

            Hi January, welcome to the forum. Don't worry, I registered in October and didn't know how to do anything. I am slowly learning and see, I can even do 'quotes' at last.

            We are a friendly bunch, and if you can get to any meets, you will have a great time. Ann

              Hi January and welcome

              It took me a couple of months before I dared to introduce myself or reply to other peoples posts. Now I love it and log on fairly regularly to see what topics are being discussed. Thanks for asking about the jargon - I've been wondering what LOL meant, and now I know! LOL

                      Hi Roamingsue

                      Wow! I'm amazed at how long the list is. I really must learn it all before the test! Then I'll really be able to impress my grandchildren

                        A new language to learn, I don't think I'm up to it now. I had enough trouble with Spanish a few years ago, especially when it got to the grammer and technical bits- past participles and all that! (what's that when it's at home?)

                              Oh, I like it, Just what I need after today. A 2 vehicle home - both gone to the repairers - no wheels boo hoo.

                              Plumber here all day fitting new expensive boiler - there goes funds for a few week-ends away. At least I'll be able to have a nice full steaming bath at the end of it instead of a boiler dripping all over the drainer, and lukewarm water.
