Glossary...

  • UPDATE - The main upgrade is now finished. The site should now be functioning as normal, I will be making tweaks over the weekend, particularly to look of the site. If you notice something is broken or have any comments please let me know. Many thanks Matt (Lithril)

Hi All,

How about having a glossary thread for all the acronyms that pepper the boards (SAK, EKA, EDC and so on) as well as other terms. Maybe even add a relevant link or two.

This could be for not only bushcraft related things but anything anyone wants to add.

I feel it would be a valuable reference tool for newbies (such as myself :eek: ) .

Maybe start it as a thread (probably best as a sticky under Bushcraft Chatter actually) then if it gets to a decent size I wouldn't mind compiling it into an article if it's worth it.

Good idea?

Here is my input to kick it off....

SAK: Swiss Army Knife (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swiss_army_knife)

Cheers chaps,

They were quite hidden as they were a couple of years old now. Maybe as Roving Rich suggested it should be made sticky?

Matt.

That would definitely get my vote - and not just acronyms, but also other
jargon-y terms relating to tools and kit would be really useful.

It's probably most helpful as a Word document (ease of sorting alphabetically
using the Table / Sort menu) but I'm not sure that's practicable here.
