During the playoffs we had a handful (ok, like one or two) requests for a glossary or FAQ page to explain stuff like “Who’s Crunchy?” to new readers. We had long been planning to post a glossary before the start of the new season, but then we both realized we had gotten a little lost in the whole toaster thing and thought this might need to be a group effort. Thus was born the — drumroll please — IPBGlossary wiki! That’s right, you can now have IPB authorship, sort of. (We still control this site, we think!) Just email us at interchangeablepartsblog [at] gmail [dot] com to get an invite to get a username and password to contribute to the glossary.
We want to make IPB as approachable to new readers as possible; this seems to us the best way to make the nicknames and in-jokes easy to decipher. And it’s interactive and fun! We put a few entries in to get us all started. Anything you think needs to be added, jump right in! Please let us know what you think of this, whether it works, what might be changed, how stupid you think it is, how much you hate it, what-have-you.
Go forth, Gentle Reader, and wiki!
(Also, a link to the glossary can always be found on our new IPBGlossary page at the top of the blog.)
