Is SS - Schutzstaffel [WWII GEN] not part of the glossary for 'political' reasons or has it simply not been suggested.

Super Dungeon Explore. Is it possible to get SDE added to the glossary? The game is growing in popularity and SDE has been used often enough to justify the addition.

Please, please.

Hovering over BRB suggests Be Right Back or Big Red Book (WHFB).

Can we add Basic Rule Book and reference 40k and WHFB? And any other system?
Seems... limiting... to reference a specific color. That and, being colorblind, I try not to use color to denote things - so when I reference the BRB and someone says "The fantasy rulebook?" I get frustrated.

Something should be decided on for the 6th edition rulebook. Whether this means using something like B6B or simply changing BRB's meaning to "Big RuleBook", I would suggest something is done so that we don't have to go to the trouble of writing out the whole of "6th ed rulebook"

Edit: Also, LARP should be added. It may have nothing to do with tabletop wargameing, but it's still a frequent term.

SED or better yet, 6ED for 6th edition. Pretty clear, and easily followed with 7ED and so forth later on.

Since we have not had a special 5th edition version of the 40K BRB, or special separate versions of the 7th or 8th edition WFB BRB, we really have no reason to make this any more complicated than needed.

BRB refers to the current rulebook, simple as that. If people want to talk about an out of date rulebook then they should clarify by "the 5th Ed BRB" the same way they would have to talk about 4th Ed right now.

Do we have an appreviation for every ruleset?

I think SW should also refer to Sedition Wars, though I suppose its a bit early to know if it is that popular

But if I were to refer to the 4th edition I'd say the BGB. And if I referred to the 3rd edition I'd say BBB. I'm not saying that we can't use BRB for 6th, it's just that it currently says "Big Red Book" in the mouseover, which I would suggest changing to "Big RuleBook".

Big RuleBook would be a good addition. It seems the majority of people have been using BRB for 5th already, so that would be an easy chance to keep.

Actually I've added most of those now. They'll start showing up in new threads started, but it will take a while for them to be seen in existing threads (like this one).

The ones I didn't add were either due to the fact that I did a search and didn't see them in use or they used abbreviations that are too commonly used as regular words (like TO being Thermo-Optic, since 'to' is used way too frequently).

I don't know the process for adding these, but considering Hull Points, Snap Shots, and Aegis Defense Line (to a lesser degree) will probably be terms thrown around a lot in this edition it seems to make sense to add them to the list.

Probably because every time someone used the word "us" it would link?

I dont think it can distinguish upper and lower case.
