Please can we only add acronyms here after they become common use, not before?

any and all suggestions are welcome. Only the most commonly used acronyms are added to the dictionary. The last update to the diary can be found at the bottom of it's post. The last update/addition was "Sun Jun 08, 2003 1:15AM"

Hi,

I would like to make a suggestion about two acronyms, FLD and ULD.

The explanation of both acronyms in the dictionary says:
FLD = False Lucid Dream - you fall asleep in a normal dream and you become lucid. You could be very lucid but still you think that the guy which fell asleep in the normal dream is the "real", waking you.
ULD = Unaware Lucid Dream - you are NOT realizing that you're dreaming but still you act like a lucid dreamer and do everything you want to do - you have the behaviour of a lucid dreamer, not the consciousness

However, if you read the forums you see that people use FLD in the same way as they use ULD: acting like an LD'er but not realizing you're dreaming. Very few people report the go-to-bed-in-a-dream-and-then-get-lucid-experience.

So DreamAddict I would like to suggest that we adapt to the reality of the forums and change the meaning of FLD to the same as ULD. So they become just synonyms. This way nobody will be surprised when they scroll over the acronym FLD and then get a pop-up with a strange explanation that noone seems to use anymore.

On the other hand, I've really had dreams where I went to bed, fell asleep and had another dream. If anyone knows a good acronym for this kind of experiences, please let us know. Some time ago I saw the term "meta dreams" describing this experience (read here) , so maybe MD would be a good acronym?
