|It appears that acronyms are frequently used by the community (including myself) to refer to a certain BD thing or person.
As this is convenient, and even common use in many other communities, there is of course nothing against it, in my view. But in an attempt to make new BD fans acquainted with the terminology, I'll list here the most frequently used acronyms. This list will be completed when necessary (please tell me your ideas by PM: private message thanx for so far! ).
BD, BDash: Boulder Dash
BDx: Boulder Dash x, where x is a number. BD4 is usually Dr. Watson's Boulder Dash 4. BD5 to BD11 are usually Don Pedro's Boulder Dash 5 to 11.
AD[x]: Arno Dash [x]
CrDr[x]: Crazy Dream [x]
RTAD[x]: RTA Dash [x]
