So... I see them posted regularly... but how do you translate all that's chock-filled in there? I looked on the lines page... but no FAQ.
Any help would be appreciated!

Originally posted by DrOpReally obsessive types like myself print them out and keep them somewhere. There are keys at the bottom. It's all easier on paper than the screen (or at least for me it is).
Did somebody just put a (newer :-) ) subliminal message in the rotating Wienerville sign?? I just printed one of those out, & was wondering how to decrypt some of the information in there. The sequence after the match rating (eg. "Mx-1c-1k-2a-2b-2b-2a-E-1b-1k-2b") baffles me, & don't see anything that decodes it for me.
(I do get an Acrobat Reader error when I open the file. Am I missing something?)
This can be confusing if you haven't read it before, yep.
It's basically a transcription of the momentuem shifts in the match - who had control when, and who got it next.
Mx = mixed, so the match started out with no one side in control - some people
1c = The first side got control - and the guy who's last name starts with c (John Cena!) was the one doing to the moves... 1k = and handed it off to kidman 2a = Angle turned the tide 2b = Benoit got in 2b = and stayed in for a while (not quite sure exactly about what determines a repetition - when I used to do this, a repetition indicated a hope spot [ex: kidman avoids a corner charge but ends up getting clotheslined anyway] but I'm don't remember Robert's criteria) 2a = Angle back in E = Even - no side has control. This differs from Mx (people from different teams are in control at the same time, as opposed to no one being in control) 1b = I think that's supposed to be 2B and Benoit back in control but not sure 1k = Kidman hits that SSP 2b = but Benoit ends up hitting the submission for the win
The ides is that you can not only get a feel for how a match flowed, but how it felt - was it a one sided squash (lots of momentuem for one, none for the other)? More back and forth? One person stuck in the ring a long time?
I'm not getting an error with the newest line - perhaps it's a version thing? I've got 5.0.
So the asterisks do refer to the interferences listed below under "Breakdowns" -- cool.
OK then, in the Brock et al match: ??-Mx-??-Mx-1b-1t-1t-1t-2e-2x-2e
-- the x-in-a-circle symbol means what? -- MX = mixed -- the x-in-a-circle again -- MX = mixed -- 1b = Brock in control -- 1t = Tajiri (also of the first side) takes control -- 1t = Tajiri does something else particularly interesting -- 1t = Tajiri again -- 2e = Edge gets in -- 2x = is this a typo, or is this when Edge & Rey are both in doing stuff ?? -- 2e = Edge gets the win
Something like that?
BTW, I downloaded a newer Acrobat Reader, & am fine now -- no errors.
You know, that there is no key is a product of time. When I started posting these regualrly this year, there was a key, but with time, I omitted it for space, hoping everyone would know what everything meant by now. I shall post a key with the next set of lines, but the current posts have it close enough for the time being.

Seriously, how DO the post-production guys keep a straight face when they show this to Stephanie and convince her it looks GOOD? (Answer: Stephanie probably doesn't watch it - hell, she probably doesn't even watch the show) WWE SMACKDOWN 3.10.
