In order to save space and typing time, fans discussing the broader timeline issues, theories and other aspects of Template:LZS have developed a system by which to convey theorized game placements in as little text as possible as well as shortening online posts. Abbreviations will vary across the internet and new shorthand abbreviations are regularly adapted. Often understanding abbreviations will lie solely upon having read the preceding information. Understanding the basic shorthand is pivotal to understanding timeline jargon and following along with the language used in online discussions. Below are some commonly used abbreviations.
