Discord is a computer chat server, which has some Mobile Frame rooms.
Twankus is the commander and designer of Twanks LLC (fictional), and generally regarded as the instigator of the Budget Frame Wars.
LDD is Lego Digital Design, free software to build Legos.
4p scale is 4 plates is the size of a human in Lego.
7p scale (which Mobile Frames are generally built), is 7 plates for human size.
Heretech is a fictional company I created known for "corporate espionage".
Travis is a style of Lego brick with studs on 5 of the 6 sides.
BrickLink is a wonderful website with shops similar to eBay or Amazon, where you can buy Legos by the part, set or lot.

Welcome to Mobile Frame my friend! Any other questions, don't hesitate to ask!
Erebus awaits us all...

Sometimes we're so drown on it we even forget we kinda developed our own lingo overtime.

Hey, don't call yourself dumb! Or anyone else, for that matter!

You're smartest when you don't know things. It's knowing that keeps us from learning.

I've come to find that the instant a person has "graduated" from something is the instant they stop learning about it.

Hmm, ok. I'll go over the one's I know, hope that helps :)
PAX is a convention for tabletop (and video) games. I'm not very familiar with it myself to be honest.
HR is Valtarshol's designation for anything in the "Human Resourced" line of frames. Valtarshol can probably explain why it called Human Resourced a lot better than I can.
AT, if you're referencing what I use on my frames, stands for Aardvark Technologies, the company that in-universe creates and sells my frame designs.
I'm not sure what you're referencing with MCF and AHU :?
MMMIG stands for Monthly Mecha-Making Inspiration Game, a thing that phayze81 puts up every month with a new picture to serve as inspiration for building.

Hope I helped, and I hope someone else can fill you in on the rest

Most of these I can't really help you with, but luckily Aardvark and Mantisking already have, lol. But I believe Ahu is some deity for the Ijad, or some important figure for their race. At least this is my understanding, however I could be wrong as well, so please don't quote me on it.
The Dead may outlast the Living, but those who never Lived outlast them all.

HR as in "HR-c15" or "HR-105" is Human Resourced yeah, it's an intentional joke on the trend of real life companies assuming their customers are all stupid; they renamed the company from "General Resourced" when the Ijad were encountered to "avoid confusion."
