    Glossary of terms

    Just an idea I had last night. Often I have found in the support forum that some of us talk in terms that new or fairly new users are not sure about. I've had a look at the Wiki but don't see a 'Glossary' of terms.

    My suggestion would be to have a Glossary section under the GBPVR Manual heading that people could head towards to give defined meanings to things such as 'MVP', 'NMT', 'QAM', 'Softcam', 'DVB' etc.

    I've started a preliminary list but just wondered whether it is worth me pursuing or not.

    If I get 10 positives from new/experienced (well any users!) I'll do more work!

    Cheers

    makes conversations shorter when there's a reference to point folks to..
    and should add to the general level of common understanding..
    would be cool if certain words hotlinked back to their definition..but maybe too much extra traffic..
    still, good idea all around..

    Nice, some movement then and quite fast. I would still love to hear from at least 1 new user with an experience of the Wiki as it is now which has been soooo much improved over the last year by a few people (you know who you are!)

    Not giving any disrespect to those have that replied to this post but you are all seasoned

    Think I got caught out post-wise by PBS on that one who brought it down to 6!

    Just waiting for a new user then I may walk the talk.....

    Idea was to link back to 'hotlinks' do you think not such a good idea traffic-wise? Opinions?
