    What I am going to do here to avoid confusion is to lock this thread to prevent a run on post. If you have an Edmonton Specific Acronym to add to the ESAG, then PM it to a mod ASAP and they will add it to the list PDQ.

    Send it to:


    Any other mods that would like to volunteer, PM me.

    I will also delete the duplicate post from m0nkyman as Ceres added it to the OP.
