+ 2. Brief ()

Vocabulary: Glossary

There are three ways to find a term:

  1. Click a letter in the index at the top of the page to filter terms in the left sidebar and the main view below the index to those that begin with that letter.

  2. Type something into the left sidebar Filter to filter terms in the sidebar to only those that contain the text you typed. This filters terms from the currently selected index (letter) or all terms if no index has been selected.

  3. Click a term in the left sidebar to display just that term in the main view. There may be duplicates from multiple vocabularies.


+ 3. More ()

Vocabulary: Glossary

At the top of the Glossary is an index (the number in parenthesis represent the number of terms in the Glossary that begin with that letter).

Clicking a letter in the index displays summaries of the terms that start with that letter in the main content section below the index. The same terms also appear in the left sidebar.

There are three ways to get to the term you wish.

  1. In the main content section, the view is displayed as a table with 3-4 columns: Term, Description, Vocab, and sometimes Abbrev. Scroll down to find the term you wish. If the summary is not good enough click on the term to get more information.
  2. When a letter is clicked in the Index section, the view also includes the terms desired in the left sidebar. Multiple and identical terms may be displayed as separate rows from different vocabularies, or even the same vocabulary (for now).
  3. If you know the term you are looking for (or at least some of its letters), start typing into the Filter terms text box. Autocomplete will filter the terms to only those that contain the letters typed.

To reset the content area in the left sidebar below Glossary Terms, click on the Glossary Terms title (or delete the letters you typed). To reset the whole Glossary page back to default (all terms), click reset.


Glossary terms may come from multiple Taxonomy vocabularies. Currently only the following vocabularies are used: Abbreviations, Contact Subtypes, and Glossary. A term in the Abbreviation vocabulary is only included in the Glossary if it links to a term in the Glossary that is non-abbreviated.

admin ()

Vocabulary: Abbreviations

Administrator ()

Abbrev: admin

Vocabulary: Glossary

The Administrator or admin, is the highest roles possible. Admin consists of a trusted and limited group of people, granted special permissions. The role of admin is highly private, highly limited, and consists of highly experienced and trusted members. No member can join admin without a personal invitation, and without having already done much for this website's development.

When admin appears slow in responding to problems, realize they are doing all they can with the limited staff on hand. The problem confronted by admin is the limited people who qualify for this role, but the solution rests in everyone's hands. The more members recruited the sooner a new recruit makes it to admin.

All things considered, admin controls everything, from the appearance of this website to what is allowed to be published. Admin also controls who gets blocked on this website so be nice to admin. They are the ones responsible for getting things done.

With that all said, to achieve the best user experience, admin is always dependent on member's feedback.
