I agree, but this is a category, and thus can only show links to other pages, you can't include a short defenition with each link.  A glossary would be better done like the [[List of Acronyms and Abbreviations]].  Having a category "Glossary" is rediculous, and it needs to be deleted.  But I would be more than happy to see a page devoted to a Glossary.

--[[User:Ozone|Ozone]] 22:12, 2 March 2006 (MSK) Yes, I agree that a glossary is needed. Perhaps modeled on the list of acronyms. I don't feel bold enough to do it myself; but if someone more knowegable creates it I would be happy to work on it. Is it possible to create a list that is alphbetical?

Do we really need a Category called "Glossary"? I mean, isn't the wiki itself a glossary? Can you point me to the wiki pages that shouldn't be in the glossary?

--Urwumpe 30 July 2005 19:07 (MSD) : I don't think so. A glossary is always a short explanation of terms, so its a nice way to keep a small subset of the page as glossary. Eg, i don't want to have a complete article about Cape Canaveral in the Glossary - but a short explanation what and where it is makes sense.
