Does gotmead have a glossary/dictionary ? Because I keep coming across words and phrases that don't mean much to me and I'd like to understand more.


for example, stuff like XX% sugar break ? What's that ?

Cheers

That link is broken. Sorry for a such a necro'ing, but is there an actual glossary of terms here at gotmead? I keep seeing mention of a link, or "Want to see something added to the GotMead Glossary? PM me! Didn't know we had a glossary? Check the top row of links." Where is this "top row of links"?

Maybe my browser is broken. Firefox refuses to display some things, or they're all "freakily jumbled up" sometimes.

Sorry but you've got us while we're in a construction zone (http://www.gotmead.com/forum/showthread.php/22764-Gotmead-Main-site-update-progress-report)... only the forum is working right now and has recently been upgraded to a different format so some of the things described in posts older than March 2014 or so may not represent actual site conditions... I believe the plans are to get the rest of the site up and running again but no idea on the timeframe, so we're missing our NewBee Guide as well as our Glossary, and our Mead Calculator. The member who took care of the glossary has been a bit busy IRL and I guess he hasn't changed his signature to reflect that our glossary is currently unavailable.

I would suggest to the mods that we create a "sticky" thread for an interim glossary at the moment to cover these bases, and if anyone has working links to or alternate versions of the Calculator and Newbee guide they should be made available in a sticky thread too, but maybe for now, just list the terms you'd like more info on in here and we'll try to explain? What were you trying to look up?

+1 and this would probably be a better long term fix under the phpbb architecture anyway.

I don't even remember now, specifically, what it was that I was looking for... and I might have already found it! :-P But, that's the beauty of losing your mind...you keep discovering new things every day. :-)

+1 to the idea of a sticky. i had suggested this in a thread that posted the meadcalculator.. or was it the newbee guide... Anyway, it got buried under newer posts
Heh, would have never thought I'd see the post in which fatbloke asked what a sugar break is :)
