I'm also wondering if it's maybe time to give the glossary a review and remove some of the terms which no longer apply due to edition changes, discontinued games, etc.

Yeah, there's definitely a lot of old stuff floating around in there, but its not really easy to print out a big list to post here for people to peruse (and its too much work for me alone to try to figure that stuff out). Plus, we do have a lot of old conversations found throughout the forums that if people do end up going back and reading (for whatever reason) its nice to possibly have those old abbreviations still clarified.

Honestly, I think the best bet is just to let me know when you spot an abbreviation tip that is completely and totally irrelevant and I'll just change/remove those as needed.

Like SST Don't want to get it confused when we're talking about supersonic transports in 40K

I don't think those are common or necessary.

But I suspect you also realize this?

Why single me out when there are plenty of other suggestions that are by far worse? It's common enough in talks about SW tactics.

As for a suggestion, I would like to suggest SR for Stormraven as it's pretty much a key component of any SM list that wants to win now.

Is it, though? Google says TDAWGPL has been used 6 times in 7 years. There are zero results for TAWGPL.

Dakka's own search function finds 5 results for both phrases combined, 4 of which are this thread.

Yes. It's one of those "army wide" special rules that are listed on a datasheet and referred back to a page, like how Loyalist Space Marines have ATSKNF

There are so many that would really help in X-Wing, if we do a concerted effort, is there any chance we might get them?

Is this thread still in use?

If it is, there are a few things missing for orks and DG:
LoC - Lord of Contagion
PBC - Plagueburst Crawler
MBH - Myphitic Blight-Hauler

KBB - Kustom Boosta-blasta
SJD - Shokkjump Dragsta

Maybe unnecessary, but those keep getting used more often now:
BM - Bad Moons
DS - Deathskulls
ES - Evil Sunz
