New member questions

I have two questions...

1) Is there a list of common acronyms / abbreviations that everyone uses in the forums? Most aren't difficult to figure out, but there are a few (like DW, which seems to refer to a person) that I haven't figured out yet.

2) Is it possible to change my username, or do I need to create a new account to do that?


A little about me: Not an RV owner yet. Planning on an early retirement in about 5 years and doing my homework now.

Welcome to IRV2. Yes the acronyms can be confusing, but when I started I just kept on reading and pondering...did make it more interesting at times.

Here is one list: Web Forums Slang

I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not so sure..

Hi Andy! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

Maybe one of the Moderators will jump in here and answer your question about the name change. I know it can be done because I changed mine!

That link that Don posted is the best I've seen! Enjoy the forum!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!
