Welcome....I'm glad you asked that questions.  When I first joined years ago, I wondered too but was afraid to ask.  Over the years I've worked out most of them but Prairie Quilter has some on her list that made me laugh.  I can't imagine writing something like....Let's go on a FART and get some more SABLE.

For those who have some 'UFO' almost done,  you can say you have a 'PHD' (project half-done) as well.

I agree with you Debra about other quilt sites. I was on one that was very clicky and I was ignored when I tried to chat.  I have been on QWU from the very beginning and have actually met some of my friends on here in person.  It's a wonderful, helpful site and I'm glad you found it.  Welcome aboard.

Thanks, PQ, I didn't even know that translations existed!  WOMBAT made me laugh!

Good to know.  This is the first quilt site that has been friendly to me and actually answers questions and concerns.  I love the vibe on here.  I feel like I fit right in.  And have been accepted.  That is special. Thanks to everyone for that!

Yes, quilters are a trusting bunch -- that is part of our charm -- but we're not stupid.  Many of the regulars who post have known and trusted each other for years.  Also, CT Admin is pretty protective of this site.  You will notice there is very little "spam" or aggressive soliciting.  We can tell when someone is a little bit "off."   You are right to be careful, but don't worry too much.  This is the only "social network" I even look at.  No one has ever contacted me personally.

Yes I agree on the TMI. Quilters seem to be a trusting bunch. I try to be careful. Thanks!

Thank you! I am so glad I found you all!

Don't worry, Debra, it took me some time to figure our that convention also!  I still read the first letter as "Dear".  Welcome.
