    This is really great. As one can see there are a lot of them. It should be a sticky or if it already is, where do you find it?

    And don't forget the most important of all - TLA, which is the three letter acronym for Three Letter Acronym!

    TOW - Track of the Wolf.

    I see that one a lot. But I haven't figured this one out - think it has something to do with wads.

    I feel like an idiot for asking, as it is apparent what it means in each ad, but why are the letters "vs" used in a for sale add on this forum instead of the obvious acronym for the two words "fs"?

    VS = Vendor Sponsor, those are the sellers who signed up and pay in order to have less restrictions on their selling. They can ell over 10 sales/ad and have over 5 items open at once, because they are paying. (No_1 or Hatch may be able to state this more clearly, this is sorta the gist of it though)

    SPF is not mentioned on list! I see that in S&S adds, I assume it means "ship pending funds" ?

    "SPF" would be Sold Pending Funds.
