Terminology?

Postby Kusatsu » Sat Aug 01, 2009 8:23 pm

I need help. I'm reading stuff like MT and FT and stuff, and I don't understand what it all means. What does MT or FT stand for? And if there are any other abreviations or termsn you think i might not be awake of, tell me. I don't get a lot of stuff people are saying.

If there is already a thread about this, please direct me towards it.

Mountain and Fort? Montana and Free Trade? We need context.

I remember reading something like this: "My nation is FT so we have such and such weaponry"

I have a sneaking suspicion that FT = future tech...

here's an exampl of a thread i just saw in the latest thread collumn "Defence of Comaack (Closed Invite Only, MT)

Maybe MT = modern tech, but I'm just taking a shot in the dark there...

Correct on both counts.

I think there's a terminology thread around here somewhere.

It'd be in either Gameplay, II or NS.

For FT and MT, never Gameplay. Try an RP forum.

I like how these responses to a query about two-letter acronyms all employ other two-letter acronyms. :)

Just to be clear, FT and MT belong to II and NS, as RP forums, not GP. Try the NS FAQ if that doesn't help. Or maybe ask someone in the NSUN, WA GA or SC, or NSWTFBBQ.

From the NSTrainer II sticky (where you should post future questions like this):
NS - NationStates
II - International Incidents (the forum you're in right now...)
NST'er - NationStates Trainer (obviously, as posted above)
TG - Telegram (The little message system on everyone's homepage)
RP - Roleplay
IC - In Character (meaning your RPing)
OOC - Out of Character (meaning you're posting as yourself, not RPing)
SIC - Secret IC post to a specific person, or just for reference
PT - Past Technology
MT - Modern Technology
PMT - Post Modern Technology
NFT - Near Future Technology
FT - Future Technology
