Future Gnomenclature Updates

Posted By Walt Ciechanowski On August 30, 2008 @ 9:35 am In Tools for GMs | 1 Comment

Gnomenclature is an evolving document. As time goes on, old definitions go out of style (remember the “Caller?”), new definitions emerge (take a Tardis back to the 1980s and ask someone what a “pdf” is), and some definitions change over time. As the GNOMEnclature STEWard (okay, that made me giggle and groan at the same time :)), I’ll be periodically updating the glossary.

If you’re a glossary junkie like me, you’ll probably want to keep checking back to see what’s changed. With the size of our glossary, this can be a daunting task, and frustrating if you go from A to Z and not find anything new. I could keep adding updates to the comments, but that’s going to get unwieldly after a while.

Instead, I’ve decided to add a “Latest Updates” line to the top of the glossary. Not only will you see the updates (or lack thereof), but they will be linked to the new definitions. Cool, huh?

Enjoy!

I enjoyed it all right, Walt! There were a couple of terms in there I had never heard, and I have been playing since the Seventies! If you want a pun, try what the landlord says over here when he is trying to throw out the customers at closing time, so he can shut the pub; “Ain’t yer got an Gnome to go to?” NOW you can groan!
