Encyclopedia -- Help Wanted

Post by gpraceman » Fri Dec 08, 2006 10:34 am

I implemented the Encyclopedia of Commonly Used Terms awhile back and have many terms entered already, but there are many more to go.

Is there anyone interested in taking the remaining list of terms and filling in the information on each? I find myself being too busy to try to tackle this.

Thanks,

Randy

I was just looking to see whether PN, PPN, and CPN were defined (they aren't). Then I looked for a way to add/suggest new entries, but couldn't find one. I'd be happy to help expand the glossary.

Thanks for the reminder. I'd forgotten about this. It's so much easier to update wiki pages. This approach requires a more deliberate approach.
