Legend for abbreviations

This is the first forum I've ever been a member of, and I never text or IM. There are a lot of abbreviations used that I have no idea of what they mean. Some I have figured out, but I still don't know what FTW means. Maybe a legend of abbreviations and their meanings would be helpful.

Re: Legend for abbreviations

There was a list of acronyms around here but I can't find it.

If there is something I don't know, I'll google it or as Stephanie referenced, use urban dictionary.
