    Default Acronym Pop-Ups

    Hello-

    I just wanted to stop by and say hi, I am new to the site and love it. I have a suggestion and didn't see a site forum to post this in.

    I see the version of software you are running is much like another forum I belong to www.dieselplace.com


    Well here at the firehouse there are a TON of acronyms that we use day after day and I thought that this feature was a good one, let me know what you think. It just pops up with the description of what the acronym means so that use newbies can get the lingo down. What do you think. I am sure you could notify the site admin from dieselplace.com to get the detailed specs.

    anyway, just a thought! here is an example...

    That's actually kinda neat, but I'm not sure it would work here. Yeah we have lots of acronyms in the fire/ems services, but few of them are standard.

    yeah I am not sure how it would work, I am very new to the field. However I know if it is adminitered correctly it is a user option so you can turn it on and off, and also the members provide lists to the admin to include in the master list.
