    A very big shout-out to user Martin_Avis for doing the necessary grunt-work.
    Here's the link to the original post:
    http://www.discogs.com/help/forums/topic/88979?page=3#2141627

    I believe there is another similar list posted in the forums since this one was posted.

    Please feel free to add to this version, or the original post, or both.

    IF you're NOT a "member" of this group, email me with more names and I'll edit this post with the update.

    and here's the contents of the post, minus the embedded discogs links:

    "All right, I've taken some time and compiled a list of all runout abbreviations from this thread and some other internet homepages. Also I did some digging myself and found some more. It's not that complicated actually, when you use the searchterm 'runout [abbrevation you are looking for]' in discogs.

    Those below are the ones we know of (or at least believe to). I didn't add any "mastered by" or other roles, since there is still some discussion as to what credit a runout marking links.

    Anyhow I linked everything with the real name discogs profile and where not possible (companies) to their respective homepages.

    Obviously there can't be any guarantee for correctness, but thats the best I could do.
