Can someone point me to a thread or resource that explains what all the acronyms in this game mean? I am trying to read strategy/ship configuration guides and it's not always obvious what they are talking about. Also I can't count the number of times i've seen the question "what's a rat?" so it might be a good resource.

Thanks,

Ceres

Try this. Also the Dictionary button to your left.

That page could use an update. For example, AFAIK, POS almost always means "Player Owned Station." It could also mean Point of Sale, though I rarely hear it used as such in this game. There are several other acronyms on there that seem to have changed, and quite a few missing.

I do agree.. as the game changes the language will change, and the guide should change along with it. A game as complex as EVE has a lot of acronyms.

Until then, I don't suppose this thread (or a thread like it) could be stickied so that dictionary additions can be seen in just one place?
