There are such a load of good posts here by our experienced istockers, but in reading them I am frequently lost because of the terms used, from BM (I finally figured out this one) to PTOTW to acronyms that I can only summise means My Best Download Number In One Day etc. Is there an FAQ on the terms used here, or could we build one for us newbies - the definitive guide to i-speak?

YMMV - your mileage may vary (it may or may not work out the same for you)

There was a very long and comprehensive thread a few months ago answering the same question, you may be able to find it by using the forum search function.

Coooool thanks everyone!
Just got back from serious splurging on new Nikon 14-24 2.8 and new tripod. I just hope it's better than the 12-24 f4 I had traded in ...
