    I just want to remind CB'ers that there is a lot of great information in the CB Glossary--and never more than recently, as Derek and I have been having dueling entries!

    If you haven't done so recently, take a wander through the Glossary--there's a lot of great information there.

    I love the glossary - I tried to add to it, but haven't been able to think of anything worthwhile that isn't in there somewhere.

    Sayen, and all others, see http://www.controlbooth.com/forums/glossary/5407-please-help.html. I believe there are items there that have yet to be defined. If not, I'll try to add some items.

    A short while ago, I decided that we should have at least one entry for every letter. The glossary is our wiki, one doesn't have to be an expert to define a term. If a less than satisfactory entry is posted, it is practically a given that it will be enhanced or corrected.

    Hooray, we finally have wisdom on here! :)

    The Glossary is a Very Good Thing. I'll have to look at it some more shortly.

    Thanks Derek and ST for all your work. It looks better every day!

    I was so inspired I just added "pin splitter" to the glossary!

    I'd love to help out. How do I add or edit entries in the glossary?

    To enter a new item: On the NAV bar, "CBWiki" is a pull-down menu. The last item on the menu is "Create New Article." This will automatically be added to the Glossary.

    To create a new Collaborate Article, select "Collaborative Articles" from the pull-down menu. On the page that opens is a link that says "Create a new Collaborative Article." Click that to create a new Collaborative Article.

    Glossary entries should be short, concise definitions. Longer and more detailed topics should go in the Collaborative Articles section.

    Te edit an existing entry:
    Click "Edit" below the entry. Make appropriate additions/edits. Click "Save" when finished. To add a comment, click on the yellow underlined "x comments." Works just like the threads in the forums.
