FYINAR - disputed[edit]

Resolved: No evidence of any usage outside Wikipedia.

This seems dodgy to me.

FYI-NAR is used by acronym-empowered people managers wishing to indicate "For Your Information - No Action Required".

Google returns no relevant hits except Wikipedia-related ones [1]. Please provide sources. --Edcolins 14:29, July 12, 2005 (UTC)

Removed. User:203.24.6.121 is known for adding nonsense to articles (See User talk:203.24.6.121). --Edcolins 14:33, July 12, 2005 (UTC)

Film Your Issue[edit]

Resolved: Moved to FYI (disambiguation).

FYI is used as a shorthand for Film Your Issue, so I added it here. I am not sure how overall relevant Film Your Issue is to the FYI article, and I created the Film Your Issue article, so I'm noting my 6 on the talk page. (I was going to make a disambiguate entry, but there's no disambiguate page.) I defer to consensus on whether it's a good add or not. AubreyEllenShomo 19:15, 7 December 2006 (UTC)

For Your Implementation[edit]

Resolved: No evidence of any usage.

FYI is used as a shorthand for For Your Implementation, so I added it here. Added in the header of an email so that the recipient understands that he or she should be taking action on the email. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.91.221.171 (talk) 20:12, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

Is this real? I hope not; it means exactly the opposite of the usual meaning of FYI!-- (talk) 10:58, 14 April 2010 (UTC)

Headline text[edit]

FYI was also the name of a fictional newsmagazine on the television series Murphy Brown. FYI was also the name of a 1980s daily information program on ABC. Film Your Issue is an annual filmmaking competition. FY_, a play on the common "FYI". Here you change the last letter of the acronym to match the first letter of your name. For instance, if your name is "Jeff", you would "FYJ" someone (that is to say, you would "For Your Jeff" them). FYI is a common abbreviation of For Your Information. Shouldnt this be on a disambiguation page, instead on a main page? 07:00, 13 October 2008 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Vock (talkcontribs)

FYI in Swedish - Trivia[edit]

Resolved: Off-topic; this is en.wiki.

FYI as an abbreviation is commonly used in emails inside companies in Sweden, also Swedish language ones, even if FYI only stands "for your information" and nothing special in Swedish. However FYI does look like FY! and can be interpreted as that to someone not aware of this acronym. "Fy" in Swedish is often said to misbehaving children or dogs and means Shame or Naughty. --194.17.253.121 (talk) 07:56, 14 April 2010 (UTC)
