I have asked a couple different times, within random posts in random threads, and nobody has bothered to answered.

What is it?

...and why am I seeing it used so frequently?


....and one more time, for the hearing impaired:

Threads with a [WTB] are entries to the latest writing competition which can be found here: Where's the Beef Writing Contest [WTB]

Here's the short story forum, notice how only threads in this forum have the [WTB]?

Thank you very much for not answering.

Was I not clear enough with the question? Should have worded it differently?

Where's the Beef Writing Contest [WTB]

Thanks, but I still don't know how an old lady from a 1980's fast food commercial, is in any way related to the 'Short Stories' Forum.

Yes, which only makes it that much more strange.

What's the point? Why not change it to the '[WTB] Forum'?

lol. She wasn't hard to find, but that is not even close to as funny as I remembered.


...and I still don't see any relevance.

Again check the short stories forum.

"Ignorant men ask questions that wise men answered a thousand years ago".

It means Where's The Beef.

IT is to indicate the story is entered into a kind of contest. Before that you had D&G, which stood for Doom and Gloom, or F&R, for Forgive and reconciliation.

Hope it answers you, this time!

Maybe because they have different competitions?

[WTB] presumably stands for "What's the beef" - the name of this particular competition. Another before it was called The Forgiveness & Reconcilliation Writing Contest thus thread's had this in the title to show they were competition entries: (F & R)

Haha I've been so close to making this thread a few times! I googled it and came up with numerous answers so still a mystery to me with some references to it... I know one answer was Wife To Be and another Want To Buy but they're the only ones I remember without jumping on google again.

Yeah I tried searching it too. Got all sorts of whacky results, but nothing that was helpful.

Ha ha...I thought it meant: "What the Beep?"
Small children run around uttering that in my village.

It is a secret society dedicated to the investigative work of Clara Pellar who so poignantly asked 'Where's the beef?'
A question asked by many that still has not been answered. It remains a mystery.
Evidence suggested that the Prego did in fact finally find the beef, with the help of Pellar.
But Wendy claims she actually had the beef all along.
Its a conspiracy, so we can not be sure. Trust no one.

Doesn't ATS, I mean Above Top Secret have rules against using acronyms and abbreviations in their T&C, I mean terms and conditions.

You've been told the answer several times. What don;t you get about "Check the short story forum."?

You have Writer status...so how is it you don't understand the format for short story competitions?

You were given an adequate answer and yet, you totally disregarded it.
