I have a splendid idea to make newcomers (like me) feel welcome to the forum and to the hobby. I've been playing fantasy way back and sporadic friendly games of 40k the last ten years. I was never the guy who spent a lot of time in forums except the occasional rumour lurking of course. ;-)
Now that I've actually joined a forum I feel confused. I gain a lot of knowledge/info from more experienced forum members. But you guys have so much slang and abbreviations going on that I can't follow and have to ask all the time. It's not just game terms, the whole hobby is full of shortenings and jargong. I think it could also be a cultural thing. I got confused over the abbreviation IP (intellectual property). Even though we've the same term in swedish (immateriell egendom) I've never seen it abbreviated. Not that you would see it everyday anyway.
I searched for a thread on this but didn't find one. Could this be the one? First question then; what is TDA? :-)
