Does somebody really use the term "HCperm" rather that "hardperm"? Also I've never read "Volley", "Brero", "Squito", "Spleeniar" or "Tato" anywhere but here. The same is true for "Tater", but at least I've heard that one before. I'm under the impression that Arashmin tried to include every ''imaginable'' slang word he could find. While I'm convinced he did it with best intentions, reading that page as someone who is just getting into KoL could be a proper downer. So I'm going to remove all the words and acronyms that look like they're either made up or aren't relevant to the average player - like BRC. I don't have answer to everything, so feel free to put words back in which ''you'' think are even vaguely important to mention here. --[[User:Yatsufusa|Yatsufusa]] ([[User talk:Yatsufusa|talk]]) 05:05, 6 September 2014 (UTC)

Revision as of 15:32, 6 September 2014

I'd say the page should lose the common acronyms. Just a link to the full list would be more than enough and most of the terms listed aren't things you encounter that common: For example no new player needs to know what stuff like the OAF or the CCW even is. Try to focus on things that will be in reach of a new player. Teach them how to walk, before you show them what running looks like. If you really want to cover the whole uncut lingo of the kingdom's community, split the page into two (or even three) sections. Also when what follows a headline is just one sentence, you should consider using a different format. Like this:
Cocoabo – Performs a variety of actions, like a Cocoabo.
