Should we have a 'choose the intended meaning' thing? Just curious because we have got a lot of abbreviations now.

More abbreviations - for Necron Cryptek users:

HoT - Harbringers of Transmogrification
HoS - Harbringers of the Storm
HoE - Harbringers of Eternity

I'm not sure about Harbringers of Despair or Destruction, because you would end up with something like HoDesp and HoDest. Unless you could think of a better solution.

I guess just using context is probably the way to go. Another question - should we add RP - Reanimation Protocols, and remove WBB - We'll be back? Few people will use the old term.

Mandorallen turned back toward the insolently sneering baron. 'My Lord,' The great knight said distantly, 'I find thy face apelike and thy form misshapen. Thy beard, moreover, is an offence against decency, resembling more closely the scabrous fur which doth decorate the hinder portion of a mongrel dog than a proper adornment for a human face. Is it possibly that thy mother, seized by some wild lechery, did dally at some time past with a randy goat?' - Mimbrate Knight Protector Mandorallen.

I've often stumbled across words around these forums, that I'd preferred had had a glossary attached.

Often those are models, that have seen frequent use in many, many lists, and hence have had a nickname given. As those aren't always clear, it'd be nice to have these added to the glossary.

These includes words, such as:
Rifledread (Autocannon Dread)
Psyfledread (Autocannon with Psy-ammo Dread)
Dakkafex (Dual Twin-Linked Devourer Carnifex)
Flyrant (Winged Hive Tyrant)
Jetlock (Warlock on Jetbike)
etc.

Eventually, you catch on to these nicknames. But it'd be nice to have them added, as newer users won't always know the exact meaning of these.

Can we get MSU for 40K as well? A lot of poss in 40K have it and I think it would be appropriate.

Well I see that RP (reanimation Protocols) has been mentioned already, but I think EL (Ever Living) should be in the list too.

Mannahnin wrote:A lot of folks online (and in emails in other parts of life) use pretty mangled English. The idea is that it takes extra effort and time to write properly, and they’d rather save the time. If you can still be understood, what’s the harm? While most of the time a sloppy post CAN be understood, the use of proper grammar, punctuation, and spelling is generally seen as respectable and desirable on most forums. It demonstrates an effort made to be understood, and to make your post an easy and pleasant read. By making this effort, you can often elicit more positive responses from the community, and instantly mark yourself as someone worth talking to.
