What is a glossary? It's a specialized type of annotated (stand-alone) list article, where the annotations are descriptions of the terms listed. Glossaries serve the primary functions of lists as well as present definitions to assist topic identification, link selection, and browsing. List structuring and annotation is covered in WP:LISTS, and glossary formatting is covered at Wikipedia:Manual of Style (glossaries).

Transwiki to Wiktionary[edit]

Alot of this should be moved to wiktionary I believe... (Erebus555 09:33, 16 July 2005 (UTC))

Agreed. Also, in considering transfering this content to Wiktionary, I suggest using this link for internet terminology: [1]. -- backburner001 15:43, 20 April 2006 (UTC)
Seconded; this doesn't belong on Wikipedia. 70.64.123.219 (talk) 06:11, 16 December 2008 (UTC)

Copypasta[edit]

Although copypasta is mentioned in Urban Dictionary and similar less-reliable sources, I can find no reliable third-party sources that mention the term. (There appeared to be some on Google Books, but those all turn out to be OCR errors for Copy ・ Paste.) The term may need to be removed. This in turn will require RfD for the page Copypasta.

requesting cleanup[edit]

Adding a quality request, even if this page is a glossary, it's still awful (spelling, tone and sourcing). Arguably you could add citation needed on every item.wren337 (talk) 17:57, 12 June 2009 (UTC)

alphabetical links don't work[edit]

The A-Z links to move down to those sections in the text do not work.128.100.71.45 (talk) 14:54, 23 July 2010 (UTC)

Merger proposal[edit]

I propose that Me too be merged into this article. The only information at that article (after I pulled out all of the unsourced information) is an explanation of how the phrase was used, along with sources designed to guide new users (in 1994-2000) about how to use or not use the phrase. As such, that article does not have enough information to be an independent article (per WP:NEOLOGISM), and should be deleted. As such, I propose that we merge in that information here as a new entry on this glossary and redirect that article to here. Qwyrxian (talk) 12:09, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

Well, I forgot about this. Given that there's been no comments in the past nearly 5 months, I'm going to go ahead with the merger. Qwyrxian (talk) 06:42, 26 June 2011 (UTC)


Win fail[edit]

The definitions of win and fail fail. Surely the Jargon File has something better. And should mention epic fail and of course epoch failRich Farmbrough, 14:17, 16 February 2012 (UTC).
