    a section for terminology?

    Discussion in 'Support & Feedback' started by Cacian, Nov 22, 2011.

    I am wondering wether it is possible to have a terminolgy section for terms and symbols.
    I am having trouble understanding what they mean.
    I am also not very good at remembering what they are for some reason:redface: and there has got to benew ones coming out all the time.

    things like
    WIP
    POV
    and

    SYMBOLS like:

    ¬
    ^^^^

    Thank you very much.

    As I said in the other thread, you can find the definitions of those abbreviations through the extremely elaborate and complex process known as "googling". Maybe you're not familiar with google.

    As for the "¬" symbol, I've never seen it used here, and I'm pretty certain that "^^^" is used to point at the post above.

    Ditto the above.

    I understand that some of those terms can be confusing for new writers, but this site isn't here to spoonfeed you information which is widely available elsewhere. Learning to look up things you don't understand is a vital skill, and providing a "glossary" would inhibit members in developing that skill.

    "Ditto" is probably going to have to go on the list :D
