I've seen a few questions here and there about what this or that means so I figured I would go over a few briefly and if anyone else has more to add just respond

Now see I looked all over for that one and just couldn't figure it out :-P

See some people think it is couchsurfing...but I am pretty sure its Carissa's Site

but hey, I've been wrong before

I think it's "Cool Stuff"

Again I'm being intrusive.. and flagged the post :)

Some day they'll check the flagged post and see fossils of messages I flagged.

On the other hand, if I continue to flag stuff, they'll have an AMB training kit ready up there real fast!

(But tell me if you don't want to do this, will keep quiet :) )

Anybody has a little time to wikify this?

In case you have forgotten about Oceania ( I don't blame you - CS forgot it on it's new logo as well ) but we invented the New Ambassador Training Kit ages ago.

I'll send you a link for the Australian one
http://wiki.couchsurfing.com/en/Australia_New_Ambassadors_Welcome_Kit
although that doesn't have any abbreviation explanation in it, that might be found in the New Zealand new member welcome kit http://wiki.couchsurfing.com/en/New_Zealand_new_member_welcome_kit

it's of course not as nicely done as in this post with fancy links and stuff but I think it does the trick.

I have some time free tomorrow, I can go about putting it up as a wiki. Stay tuned and I will do what I can until something more permanent (and official) comes out.

Ok wiki is all done at the moment.

Pretty easy to go through and add new abbreviations and what not when we need them
