I think this would be a good wiki article for players new to the wiki. There are lots of crazy acronyms that make reading articles and blogs confusing for new people.
I tried posting this as an article, but Mckrongs removed it for some reason. I don't know where it should go or be placed, I'm just trying to contribute. ;) This is a rough first draft. I'm new to the whole "wiki" thing. Therefore, the formatting, layout, and graphics may not be the best. Please let me know what needs to be changed!
When I first started reading through the various articles, blogs, and comments on here, I was often very, very lost. Marvel Avengers Alliance players have a lingo/shorthand all of their own. I often googled and googled 'til my fingers fell off. Eventually, I got the knack of it.
Here, I present to all of you new readers an improv glossary for the most common abbreviations used here on this site.
