i wanna know what is the full name of IP and op

i can read so I can easily tell IP means exclusive game belong to a certain system or platform.
and OP means the creator of a thread.
but it's really kinda not easy to figure out how IP and OP would connect to these meaning.
who would like show me the answer?

It's quite simple really. You understand what they mean, but I'm guessing you don't know what exactly those two stand for.

IP: Intellectual Property
OP: Opening Post

Always thought op was original poster, as in the one who created the thread, so now I know something new, thanks!

It could very well be. One minute while I check... (I honestly don't know why I'm not checking before posting. >_>)

EDIT: Looks like opening/original post and original poster are all correct depending on the context.

I tend to use OP as "Original/Opening Post" because we have TC to address the person who posted it.
