Quote from: Clinton R. NixonHere's my concept for a glossary that wouldn't be that hard: a system consisting of matches from terms to links. It would be a simple mapping where term X can found first found in thread Y. (And clarified in threads Z1, Z2, and Z3.)Does that sound like something useful? If so, I will put effort into it.
Quote from: wfreitagIn all fairness I should mention that although Fang is a terminology fiend, he consistently enters his specialized terms as links, which is a great help.
Quote from: Le JoueurWhen you set up a forum, you make a vocabulary file; it automatically links any future instance of that word to your glossary.
Quote from: Clinton R. NixonJonathan,I appreciate the Wiki idea - it's a good one and has merit.The reason it didn't work out before, and I don't think it's the right one now is that it basically creates another forum. When a glossary is codified - which should happen some day - it needs to be a static, not dynamic, thing.
Quote from: Clinton R. NixonRon and I are discussing what we're going to implement, and will let you know early next week.
