    Anyone considered starting a permanent listing of definitions of terms commonly used on this site (e.g. - fatty) that the newbies might never have been exposed to and could easily access????
    Kind of a "Smokers Dictionary".
    It could be set up so new terms and definitions would be easily added as they pop up. Course, I'm sure there are those who could run amok with something like this, so some sort of control would have to be in place.
    Just a random thought that penetrated the Partheimers. That happens sometimes.

    peculiarmike,

    This forum has a glossary/encyclopedia feature that I have not set up yet but it sounds like that would be a perfect opportunity.

    Maybe everyone can contribute to a list of things that need to be defined and I will add them to the glossary.

    Also...

    The phpBB forum had an acronym feature that looked for certain words, acronyms, etc. and highlighted them anywhere the words were found. On mouse over it would give a description of the word.

    I may be able to install a hack like that for Vbulletin.. will do some looking.[​IMG]

    I have to say that was a really cool feature, and would almost negate the need for a glossary... Good Luck [​IMG]

    If you have a hard time I could add a glossary to my site if you tell me what we need to put there. Could be fun ...

    WSM should be on there. I tried to get BCC for beer can chicken on the old site.

    Illini had a post, I think in forum related issues, trying to get something for the Masterbuilt since we have a bunch of plug in smokers now. I think it was MES. I'll see if I can find it.

    Yes please include MES which stands for Masterbuilt Electric Smokehouse.

    Give the Electrics a little recognition[​IMG]

    Then we can post that we made a mess in our MES[​IMG]

    WSM??? [​IMG]I never claimed to be bashful.

    On a more serious note, you didn't get the one for the 5-day eCourse added back either. They gotta be able to find that.

    Beleive me Shell the first time I saw you guys talking about smoking fatties I immediately went searching for what you were talking about. Way back in the day there was another meaning for smoking a fatty.


    Or so I've been told.
