    New Feature: Acronym Expansion!
    iNet has added another great new feature. Anywhere acronyms are used on the site, they will have a small dotted underline and if you hover your mouse over them, a definition will appear.

    I've built the acronym data largely from Sal's Acronym Dictionary. If you run across other things that should be included (or anything that looks wrong), respond here or send me a PM!

    Some examples: ABW, CJ, GAN, CPM, CR, PPC and AdWhore.

    Now that's really a nice feature. The world is acronym crazy and sometimes you hate to feel dumb and ask.

    Indeed! ...that acronym expansion is a cool feature...

    ...especially for the alphabetically challenged among us...I know I, on occasion, have to think really hard - or go look something up...

    Most of us regulars won't need it much (although I do have to admit that I had to research a few!), but for those who are newer to the industry, it should be a huge help.

    If you see acronyms or abbreviations that aren't included, let me know. I've already started a list and found about half a dozen more.

    Can it be made case sensitive so I am is not the same as I AM?

    I don't think so. I've noticed that one (and also PM as well).

    Yup, nice feature. But it really IS a bit distracting/annoying to see "am" and "pm" showing up as they do.

    Ah, well. It's only technology. Can't expect too much of it -- just because we can run a space program, send men to the moon, and develop a computer to whip Brad Rucker and Ken Jennings at "Jeopardy!" does NOT mean we can develop truly intelligent database software. (snicker, snicker, snicker).

    Would be a good idea to add "lingo terms" in addition to acronyms. Tho that might be a pretty ambitious enterprise if Ecomcityisms would be added to the mix.

    I'll say it's REALLY annoying to see "am" 10 times in a post to be a nice feature.

    And distracting... Is it going to bring new affiliate to ABW? I don't think so.

    I think the feature is kindof fun.

    Sorry, I just want to make a post and test these guys: WTF, BTW, RTFM, LOL
    Merchants, any data you provide to Google Shopping should also be in your affiliate network datafeed. More data means more sales!

    Gotta get rid of the "am" acronym finder. It truly is distracting.

    Please!

    Sending in a list of adds and removes today. (Unfortunately, it's a part of the configuration that I can't edit myself, so I've been accumulating the changes.)
