Re: Index/ Glossary/ Abbreviations
I think this is a good idea too -
But I agree that the LOCATION for such an index is problematic -
The group has a TON of forums already, so adding one for this is out -
Now, when someone is looking for HELP, don't you think they would come to this forum to find it, just as angryisme did?
Technical Support Forum should be the place for it, I do believe, with a note on the general thread letting folks know it is here?
My thought would be a sticky thread at the top which would consist of a single post, with all of these alphabet names in alphabetical order. Adding a name would be done by editing that post, so they are all kept together -
I am not mod on this forum, though, so could not sticky a thread here -
But PM'ing a mod with additions for him to add should work -

A woman who demands further gun control legislation is like a chicken who roots for Colonel Sanders.
