Here there be glossary entries.

Charles - there are a few FAQ entries that deal with terminology - they might be good to link to from glossary entries. --Dustin
Found 'em, thanks. I'll add those in as I go along. I found, however, if I just add the glossary category to the page, the glossary page sorts the entries to "FAQ: snark" instead of to "snark". So I'll make separate pages for the glossary entry and FAQ entry, with cross references. Sigh.
I like what you've done with Bump, actually -- if the FAQ clears up some misunderstanding, and the glossary entry just defines the term, then the two work well together. In other cases, you could make the FAQ entry a redirect to the glossary entry. You can also affect the sort order of the category page by using
[[Category:Glossary Entry|Name To Sort Under]]
I can adjust the Template:Glossary Entry to handle that if you'd like --Dustin
Thanks. Ah, I'm now reading the mediawiki docs, http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Category#Sort_order. That will be easier. Then we can retrofit the glossary entries I've already done as needed.
(Now that I think of it, we should replace the term "bump" with "demote", a more intuitive antonym of "promote. But that's an issue for another day.) -- C^2

I also added Category:Glossary and Template:Glossary Entry if you want to take a look. --Dustin
Very nice, thanks. That saves me having to experiment with how to do that.
Since this page is an orphan, feel free to use it to bring suggested glossary entries to my attention.
I've been adding them as I think of them --Dustin
Great. -- C^2
