    I think this is the most funny and stupid question you guys must have heard in long time but I am really confused.

    I am new to this forum and have noticed that the person who start a new thread is being called and referred as "OP" by everyone else in that thread.

    I have been thinking a lot about this and the meaning of this word and trying to find out the full form of OP but my mind have stopped working now.

    Can anyone please tell me what is the meaning of OP. Otherwise I will just keep thinking about this all the time.

    Sorry guys for such a stupid question...:thinking:

    Just a FYI for you. Questions like than be answered a lot quicker for you with out posting a new thread by simply trying a couple searches on google first.
    http://lmgtfy.com/?q=what+does+OP+mean

    Sometimes you might have to try a few different searches before you find the answer that make sense, (and it might not be the first result on the serp), but almost every acronym you find used in forums can be found like that.

    You could also search for "abbreviations" with the BHW Advanced Search to find threads like this one:
    - Abbreviations Explained: For Newbies

    Just a bit of advice to cut down on unnecessary threads and save you time in the future. Hope that helps. :cool:

    although that is funny as hell.

    to the guy that started this thread, the OP can be a few things.
    IRC - Operator
    Forums - Original Poster

    and for the guy above me.
    it could me that i guess.. but not on here,
    its just slang
