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

I dont think it can distinguish upper and lower case.

It can. For example: to does nothing, but TO links to tournament organizer.

Sorry if my constant posting of things I notice is a problem, but could VR link to Voidraven bomber please?

Edit: No point in creating a new post for another suggestion, which is making HW hard-wired for tau.

Just a correction.

FO currently pops up the glossary of "Forward Observe"
This should be "Forward Observer" with an 'r' at the end; it's an ability in the game, not an action.

I'd agree with SDE for Super Dungeon Explore, and SW for Sedition Wars.

Could we get KS as Kickstarter [GEN], perhaps?

Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but the AGL has a typo; it's supposed to be "astartes", not "asartes".

Hmm, this is probably too difficult to do easily, but would it be possible to have something in the "edit profile" page where you could choose which Glossary definitions come up and which don't? For example, given that I only play 40k, it would only give glossary terms tagged with 40k or GEN.

I would suggest CCW to have Concealed Carry Weapon attached too, as it reads oddly when people in Off-Topic are discussing their cousins having the licences for Close Combat Weapons. I imaginehillbillies with chainswords.

Just noticed there is a mistake on the glossary entry for Rod of Covenant for Necrons.

RoC currently reads: 'Rod of Covenant (Necrons0 [40k]'

Which should be '(Necrons)'

Okay, I've added all the suggestions in this thread up to this point (at least those that are being used on a regular basis in the forums), so you should start seeing the new stuff pop up in the next few days as the database cache recycles.

"Dyslectic" and "dyslexia" as the word "A conical reading and writing dissabillity."

The word "cronical" gives it more weight as opposed to "permanent" witch suggests that it is medical. I am not shure baout the word dissabillity but I can not come up with a better term.

The suggestions are put forward from the discussion in this thread: http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/505863.page

I am a dyslectic, so bear with me.

I think that we really need to get "IF" to come up as "Irresistible Force". Lower case, obviously, wouldn't trigger it though.

I never really see IF used in that context. If people want to shorten it, I usually just see "The Fists" or something along that lines. Confusion with the Crimson Fists I guess though...
