I've searched the Forum and couldn't find such topic.

I was thinking, since there is a lot of abbreviations, acronyms and other normal fandom slang being used here and some people still get confused with their true meanings perhaps we could me a small Dictionary for Pirates ( or Eurobricks generally ).
Of course you can easily "decipher" some of them but especially for newcomers these can be tricky a lot of times. And there's a lot of topics where some of the conversation is so chock-full of them that even I have problems :sweet:

I saw it made once on polish Tranformers forum http://transformery....?article_id=156 and it really helped much.

Nice one, but they are missing some words, and I woudln't agree with some of their definitions, they still seem confusing.
