i'm pretty good with the acronyms... but not that one!
Attention Whore :)
OHHHH ha I always wondered too
check out the help:pw acromyms under "actions" on the left side<---------------------------there lots of others there too ;)
I thought it was "after wedding" until it didn't start to make sense.
lol!!! glad i know now.
It's usually used when someone just wants to show off something or "toot their own horn". A lot of times you see something like AW: Got my epics!!!
meocuena, yes, "aw" is usually a sound but on PW it's a abbreviation that stands for "attention whore"...it's a funny way of letting people know that you're know you're bragging but you don't care. check out the list of abbreviations under action items on the left side of the screen and you should see it there...
Well being a PW newbie and having not seen it used in that context I still don't agree but...
well "aw" like you say..a sigh of joy is usually spelled "aww".......with 2 W's.
Jackie G just used it in the "horn tooting" context in a recent post - 2 MORE E-PIX from Jackie G.... (slight AW here!). I say/type "aww" a lot myself, and in that context, of course I'm not trying to be an "attention whore," but AW on this web site means just that. I hope seeing it in context helps a little - it can take a little time to get used to the acronyms on this site. :)
AW: Again TTD Slideshow
AW: It only took me 6 months
AW: WooHoo two more DIYs finished
AW: I got my wedding bands today!
Either way, my opinion doesnt change... apparently I am not into referring to myself as a "whore" in any way, shape, or form. - meoc
