    I might be the only one, but man I have trouble decoding all these abbreviations that get thrown about.

    I know it's a big universe of toys and lines and all that but perhaps if a sticky topic could be made listing the abbreviations I wouldn't have to waste a post with something dumb like "What does SG mean?"

    Why don't we just get them auto'd like DOTM ROTF and Hastak?

    Seems easier than a sticky.

    Would be cool. It took me a while until I figured that OP did not mean Optimus Prime.

    SG = Shattered Glass

    It is hard to keep track sometimes I admit.

    I have thought it odd these boards don't have info stickies at all. Like links to common resources etc.... I asked about it in the support forum and was basically told(paraphrasing) "No one would check it before asking the same question for the 1000th time anyway so why bother"

    Probably should be alphabetized, and SS could also be Sunstreaker or Sideswipe among a few others.

    Who uses that?

    Worst abbreviation ever. And I'm not even talking about the unfortunate implications. ;) 

    Starscream, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Smokescreen, Sunstorm... just to name the more prominent ones. ;) 

    Live Action Movie?

    And this, sadly, is true. Nobody reads the stickies. Seriously.
