Below are the most used abbreviations in the world of #Splinterlands, the Official Discord Server, and most posts about this game, filtered from A-Z.

Hive Power Up Day - September 1st 2021 - Hive Power Delegation

Nice list - and I assume very welcome for newcomers. We are so used to those abbreviations that we sometimes forget newcomers are unfamiliar with them.

One thing I do find funny, though: TLDR - I always read that as 'too lazy, didn't read'. It's good to see that i'm not the only one who does that. It's actually : too long, didn't read... but I prefer the one with 'lazy' in it ;0)


Exactly, I was dumbfounded during my first few days of joining the Discord that everyone is using abbreviations there.

Oh I also always thought that it's "Too Lazy" hahahahahahaha....
