I've seen the term AFOL around; for example, this site has an afol tag. What does AFOL stand for?
Note: when I asked this question, the afol tag was also on What does the acronym MOC stand for?.– DoriOct 26, 2011 at 10:03
AFOL stands for "Adult Fan Of LEGO".
From an unofficial LEGO acronym glossary:
Adult Fan of LEGO. The most common term used to refer to LEGO fans who are adults. Generally pronounced to rhyme with “hay-foal”.
Or from Brickipedia's glossary (also unofficial):
AFOL - Adult Fan Of LEGO
2The only question using that tag at the moment isn't really about adult fans.– JoubarcOct 26, 2011 at 4:27
1I'd say that it was a case of incorrect tag use - perhaps the OP considers themselves an AFOL, and tagged it as such? Oct 26, 2011 at 9:02
Thanks, all: I was wondering what it was I was missing, and the answer was that I wasn't!– DoriOct 26, 2011 at 10:04
