Maybe we should write up a similar sticky for commonly used phrases used on this forum. What do you all think?

I think that's a great idea! It would help a lot.  :)

Okay who wants to explain cog fog and benzo belly?  :laugh:

Hey,

Start a new thread, asking for contributions, and we can sticky the thread.

I think it should include any commonly used terms on this forum.

"Cold turkey"
"Window"
"Thread"
"Sticky"
"shout" (and shoutbox)
"PM" (Personal Message)

Just a few suggestions.

At the top of most threads, there are posts that have a little push pin.

At the top of most threads, there are posts that have a little push pin.

Oops - missed that.

Theresa meant "At the top of most boards". When viewing the listing the titles of threads (topics) on a board, some are permanently displayed at the top, irrespective of when the received their last reply. They carry a pushpin image, and the backround colour to the title is darker too.
