IP Boards has a nice ability to 'disambiguate' the plethora of acronyms that we use at STEP (simply place the cursor over an acronym to see what it translates to in real language). If you DO NOT see the translation on mouse hover, then the acronym is not yet defined.
 
While we have added many of the most common:
AFAIK
IIRC
SRO ...
 
Many are probably still needed, so please post here if there are any that you think should be added or post if there are issues with existing acronym conversions.
 
- STEP
 
 
WilliamImm
Well, only the one - the SMIM acronym currently reads "Skyrim Mesh Improvement Mod (mod)". Not only is the actual name of the mod "Static Mesh Improvement Mod", the (mod) tag is redundant because the acryonym expands to include "mod".

Also, EBQO (which I use frequently when referring to Even Better Quest Objectives) and REGS (Real Explorer's Guide to Skyrim, also frequently used now) should be listed in the acronym lists.

The REGS tag is misspelled ("Real Exporer's Guide to Skyrim" as opposed to "A Real Explorer's Guide to Skyrim"). SR and SR:LE (Skyrim Revisited and Skyrim Revisited: Legendary Edition) likely should be on the tag list too, though I'm not sure if SR and LE should just be seperate acronyms.

Is there a way to make these case sensitive?

 

"Taking a step in the right direction" and "STEP has a great following" <<------ These are completely different but both are using the acronyms.

I've tested it in the 'test' forum. MO (mod organizer), VFS (virtual filing system) and SkyUI have no acronyms defined atm.

Is there a way to find out what acronyms are defined atm?

BCS should be added as an acronym, since it's used fairly often to reffer to "Book Covers Skyrim".

I've been led to believe UNP = Unpretend, actually. But don't quote me.

MMO can actually stand for Massively Multiplayer Online game.
