1. What does QFE stand for?

Question for everyone

In group conversations and web forums, people use QFE when they have a "question for everyone." When someone asks a QFE, they want anyone and everyone who can see the question to respond with an answer.

People often use QFE when they are considering a big decision and want a variety of opinions from other people. For example, if a homeowner is planning to buy a new dishwasher, they may post "QFE: What's the best dishwasher brand?"to Reddit's r/Appliances sub. Questioners also use QFE when they require an answer from everyone in a group or thread. For example, your boss may send a group Slack message that says "QFE: What's your home phone number? I want to make sure everyone can reach each other by phone even though we're now WFH."

2. What does QFE stand for in online forums?

Quoted for emphasis

When QFE precedes or follows a quote in online discussions, it likely stands for "quoted for emphasis." The person who used QFE thinks the quote they highlighted is important, and thus worth sharing or repeating as part of their own post.

Typically, people use QFE when quoting SMEs who they agree with (to reinforce their own point). Other times, people may use QFE when restating a point made earlier in a discussion, by another user.


'Typically, people who have sought power or fame are jerks, because jerks are the type of people who care about that sort of thing.' QFE - can't believe how many people just cannot get this
