I was thinking we could do with some more abbreviations to make chatting about BP on the forums easier. Please comment on what you think of these:

DP = Defence platform (This could be confused with damage protection, so we could change damage protection to just protection to prevent confusion)
DPT = Defence platform turret
FRT = Fleet repair time
OP = Outpost (Same as BYM)
SW = Ship weapons
BW = Base weapons
CF = Concentrated firepower (Same as BYM)
MF = Mercenary fleet
RG = Resource gathers (Same as BYM)

What do you think? I know none of these are necessary, but it could help in chat, especialy as we are limited in characters.

*Title typo - Abbreviations

    The only ones of these that I've seen people use is DP for damage protection, RG and for a mercenary fleet we say merc(s) for short not MF. Others that are used is ff for floating fortress and levi short for leviathan.
