How do you change the status icon on your topic? I notice some have a paper icon, some with a pencil and paper icon, some with a paper and 'Hot' written across. How do you do that?

just curious... thanks.

What credit cards do this and how does it work?

Well, the "Hot" icons are for the top 5 "hottest" threads (I think most views in the last xx mins). Also, "Dead" icons will appear if users have voted the deal dead. I think paper/pencil are just standard. You can't choose which one appears when you post.

i dont know if these have aready been posted but here are some more they are:


fsot = for sale or trade

iso = in search of

lol = lots of laugh or lots of luck

FAR- Free after rebate

lol

AMEX = American Express
BVG = Best Value Guarantee (AMEX's Price-match program)



<< lol = lots of laugh or lots of luck >>


Actually, lol usually means "laughing out loud".

Lol (thought it ment Lithium Oxide Liquid)

OK....so I'm a newbie right. What is a "Gold Box" that I keep reading about? It it something related to Amazon?

Ditto on the Gold Box Question, I dont get it

LOL = little old lady
PM = post-menopausal
FLK = funny looking kid
MILF = <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-blush.gif"border=0>

Why do some people start their subjects with "POLL"?

What does that mean?

Great post <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-cool.gif"border=0><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>

what is this user rating thing about? how do you rate others and what is its significance?

i believe 10 is the highest and 1 is the lowest, there is no significance its just if you want it on or off <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>

Just to clarify:

B&M Brick and mortar store (A physical retail store as opposed to an online merchant)

BM - Bowel Movement

Gold box is a clearance section on Amazon's web site... They give you a chance to buy 10 different items each day at heavily discounted prices. However, once you look at an item and decide not to buy it (you must decide before seeing the next) you can never look at it again (or buy it).

Usually it is a bunch of crap, but every once in a while something good will show up.

How do I get the Staples $30 off $150 coupon?

The posts only say: "Then apply $30/$150 coupon (70222)"

Yes Toneii, but you can only take (er, leave) a BM in a B&M... it just really doesn't work out too well trying to do that at an online store!!!

Great screen name, Folie...

Can you add a line in the original post as to the definition of black friday for all of the newbies. I think it will be most helpful.
TIA

you know what would clear up a lot of confusion as far as acronymns go......IF PEOPLE WEREN'T TOO GOD DAMN LAZY TO F*CKING SPELL OUT THE WHOLE WORD!. jesus guys...it would take you about 1 second to write type those extra four letters...

Chill out...the whole point of acronyms is to save time. Yes, it would only take a few extra seconds to type out the extra letters in a lot of cases. But when you add it up over and over again, a lot of time is ultimately saved. Why do you think acronyms are used in every business, corporation, and everyday life? TWLA (The World Loves Acronyms).

what's this AC abbreviation that keeps showing up?
