May I suggest someone who knows what everyone is talking about create a sticky that covers most of the fish-lingo out there?
Not so much the abbreviations.. but things like "shoaling" and "flaring". Things that make sense to the veteran fishkeeper, but not the newbs. Try to include things like basic behaviours, tools of the trade, etc that people may not knows the names for, and are too shy to ask "what the heck does ___ mean?"

I agree, some new people on here might not get the "lingo". I know it took me awhile.

You mean something in addition to our Glossary which is linked to at the top of EVERY single page of the site? Wink

Hahaha I think that is sufficient.
That's actually a quite impressive glossary. Who put it all together?

oh you mean on that very tiny link at the top that doesn't scream "hey newbies, come read me so you understand what people are saying"? OK. Ill look at it. But... realize I'm not the only one who missed this glossary link.. consider making it more noticeable?

I don't think it has been 13 years yet, this site was created in June or July wasn't it?
