Common acronyms
One of the most commonly used acronyms in this game is "LPR". I was wondering if any of you really old timers out there had any idea how this originated. I started playing more than 6 years ago and it was already in common usage then, so this has to be a really old timers question.

Re: Common acronyms
For what it's worth, there is a list of abbreviations on the YPPedia, so if your research turns up any evidence of how "LPR" came about - or any other abbreviation, for that matter - it might be worthwhile adding a note to the article.

Re: Common acronyms
You are putting the cart before the horse. It means 'Long Pillage Route' and advises people to go to the restroom now. I first heard it from Faile in the Academy.

Re: Common acronyms
Close, PPA, Faile and Lilyara in particular, were early adopters, but it was Penn that started it.

Re: Common acronyms
I always heard it as "Little Pirates Room". A way for people to say they are going to the restroom, but don't want to be spesific.

Re: Common acronyms
So it could have started out as long pillage route then over the years morphed into little pirates room. I heard it first on a pillage with Limpalong a couple months after I started playing. By Penn do you mean Pennsuedo or is there a pirate named Penn I need to start hunting down?

Re: Common acronyms
I always interpreted it as Little Pirates Room, and can't remember it being used for Long Pillage Route

Re: Common acronyms
It does stand for Little Pirates Room, and I acquired use of it through my Cobalt crew (who Pennsuedo was in) in probably 2005.

Social experiment there by Leif and me, and you guys won the social puzzle ;)

Long Pillage Route is a total invention.

Re: Common acronyms
Changing the subject a tadge but one thing always made me chuckle. TITS (take it to shore). I'd love to know who came up with that one!

Re: Common acronyms
But that isn't changing the subject, that's another one I have wondered about.

Re: Common acronyms
And of course, there's the ever-popular DITW (dead in the water) that came into vogue shortly after blockading began.
