How to Submit

DictionaryWhat we’re looking for:

  • Gamer jargon not yet listed on the site, or variations on listed jargon. Jargon specific to your local group or to a specific game may be accepted if it is clever and resonant enough – but be sure to tell us it’s a local thing. You can send just a suggestion, or a complete lexicon entry, including an addendum.
  • Addenda for entries that do not currently have them.
  • Feedback about current entries – corrections, additions, and constructive opinions. If you think you know the origin of a term, or the history of a term, let us know.
  • Entries about specific game titles. Please only send these if you know the publisher, dates of publication, and are familiar with the publishing history. Also, please only send entries on games you have actually played.
  • Entries about specific publishers, gaming conventions, magazines, etc. Please, don’t bother unless you have some background data.
  • Entries about famous or popular individuals in the gaming community. We’re going to shy away from listing any negative depictions – unless, of course, we don’t like the person either.
  • A cool gamer term you just made up. Hey, if it’s clever and resonant, we’ll publish it. Just tell us you made it up.

Here’s what we DON’T want:

  • Anything cribbed directly from a copyrighted source, such as a published game book, dictionary, etc.
  • Anything cribbed directly from another web page. Send us the URL instead.
  • Press releases from game companies. This site is by gamers, for gamers. If you want to leak something to us, go find a gamer in the QA department and have him or her e-mail it to us.
  • Invitations to join a web ring. Web rings are stupid.
  • Flames. If you have a constructive criticism, by all means, send it. If we made a mistake, tell us. If you disagree with the editorial slant of an entry, send us an alternate entry – maybe we’ll publish it. But if you send us flames, we will find you and kill you. Oh, we can do it. Yessss.
  • Prank entries. Unless it’s clearly a prank entry. Or really funny.
  • Correspondence from persons critical of gaming in general and RPGs in particular, especially if your concern is that such games are Satanic. Your belief in a global satanic conspiracy is indicative of mental illness, and you can find help here.
