Forum abbreviations

When you were a new user, did you ever make a topic and be told “SBYP” or “Come to my GT to talk”? Chances are, you didn’t know what that meant. Well, here’s to all the new users, so they do know!
Forum abbreviations and what they stand for


Here are some of them:

These are used more often on the app:

FTUWC- free to use with credit
RP- roleplay

These are topic exclusive:
TUBM-the user below me
MHUI- my Hopscotch username is
DOPCTI or DT- Drawing On Paper Compared To IPad (The Drawing Topic)


Also, I know that there was a topic before this that was similar to this. Before you tell me to SBYP, read the following paragraph:
Why this shouldn’t be flagged as a duplicate topic:
The previous topic that was about forum abbreviations was short, and well, abbreviated. This one will have more abbreviations than the last, and the other topic kind of died, but I think it’s concept is important. I know I could just revive the previous topic, but I believe creating a new one will be more effective.
