- Perhaps to clarify; an example is the MMORPG World of Warcraft. Within this game, it is commonly thought that the race Night Elf with the class Druid is "overpowered," simply meaning their skills are significantly superior from the beginning. Using World of Warcraft slang, a sentence in the discussion of this view could sound "nerf drewds r OP," 'translates' into "Night Elf Druids are overpowered." —This unsigned comment was added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) at 22:42, 14 July 2009 (UTC).
publishing: OP as opposed to OOP
With regard to English Initialism entry #5 (publishing) Out of print: For historical reasons, publishers and dealers of books and similar print materials have consistently used the form OP as given here to mean "Out of print". (It was I a few years ago [edit: January 2008, via email] who had first submitted this usage to Wiktionary.)
However, again for historical reasons, publishers and dealers of musical recordings and of films - probably also of computer games, etc -in electronic format have consistently used the form OOP to mean "Out of print". Today, presumably many more users will have encountered the OOP form in looking for electronic media than for print publications.
I'm not very familiar with Wiktionary's policies and procedures, but it seems that some sort of disambiguation or other form of explanation of these two forms may be helpful to your readers. I am copying this note to the talkpage for the entry on OOP. I hope this helps. Milkunderwood 17:15, 4 November 2011 (UTC)
"Out of print" - a small mystery
On the entry page for this OP entry, Initialism #5 is shown as "Out of print", with only the word print bluelinked. Since I have elsewhere found the entire phrase "Out of print" bluelinked at the OOP entry, I thought to change it here, but instead it displayed as a redlink Out of print. What gives?
