When I became a moderator over at Eldaronline I immediately created a stickied thread with an abbreviation summary. It can depend on context. For example, in discussions on Dark Eldar armies, PG is Plasma Grenades, HW for Haywire Grenades, DL is Dark Lance, SC is Splinter Cannon, SR Splinter Rifle, SP Splinter Pistol, Bl for blaster, Dis for Disintegrator and so on.

I generally use Agr for Agoniser and Rdr for Raider. Wyches get WWs (Wych Weapons). H-Fex is a Horrorfex. I could produce many, many more!

Less specifically: SM for Space Marine, CSM for Chaos Space Marine.

A General 'net One that always mystifies me:
YMMV

Your Mileage May Vary

Rule Zero: Don't attack or belittle bigots you share these forums with. Just because they incessantly post intolerant diatribes directed at racial minorities, women & the LGBTI community, doesn't mean they don't have feelings and won't be hurt by rude comments. Remember, posting hate speech is not against the forum rules - unless it's directed at another member, of course!

Might I suggest sorting alphabetically and listing multiple entries next to each other with clarifications about army specific. E.g.
AC - Armoured Company
AC - Assault Cannon
AC (Chaos) - Aspiring Champion

This should make finding them easier and finding conflicts easier as well.

Another couple I often have trouble with are the Tyranids Abbriviations (despite having a copy of the codex!)

'Standard Fexes'
Dakkafex - (4 devourours I think under 115 pts)
Snipperfex - (Barbed Strangler and Venom cannon?)

And some of the Biomorphs like ES - Extended senses = + BS? - I'm tired sorry.
(theres a couple of others but don't feel like trawling this morning)
