I can't recall that topic really, was there a consensus over the appropriate name ??

This isn't the time or place, but...

IMHO "frown" is dumb. "Rewn" makes much more sense.

If we can't agree, though, we shouldn't have either.

Errrr... SNOT is still completely wrong.

SNOT: Studs Not On Top
A building technique where studs are, surprisingly, not always on top. This can be achieved with pieces designed for the purpose and have studs and/or anti-studs) on two or more faces, or by using pieces in a creative way. For example, most of the hinge pieces are good for SNOTting.

EDIT: My tug boat uses SNOT to make the roof and front of the pilot house.

I keep a spreadsheet of all my Lego purchases (especially off ebay/BL) and use a bunch of abbreviations in it to describe various situations. Here are some examples:

NWB: new without box (i.e. no box but unopened bags)
NI: new incomplete (unopened bags but not all of them are present)
UBx: used with box in condition x (x is a number between 1 and 10; 1 is the worst and 10 is display model quality)

Now that's just a mean suggestion suggesting people who are never out of boxes are noobs. I suggest we stop suggesting hurtful suggestions.

Although if used in a Lego set context, I like it.

I finally remembered the two terms that were missing from this glossary: decal and prefab.

I know what they mean now, but since neither of them is an actual English word, they should be explained here as well, in my opinion. Many people use them around the boards, and for new members they might be confusing. I remember I was confused when I first read these words, but like a smart gal that I am, I deduced what they meant eventually. :tongue:
