Ok thanks Vodavt, it looks like it's time to put my money where my mouth is, or at least where my typing finger is. I'm not too sure about the copyright on things like pictures - does anyone out there know?
 Anyway, to be safe I've left the photos out pending copyright clarification. I also wonder how much content we can use from sources like Wikipedia? I wonder as well if we have to use original text? It would certainly be a lot easier to cut and paste from original sources on the net.

Eagerly awaiting your replies

Dave
Cheers

I forgot to mention that the dictionary needs to be a collaborative effort, although, reading Rich's post seems to indicate that this is the general idea. Is it possible to have a shared location for the file? Although I will be happy to update the document in the mean time.
Also do we need to acknowledge contributors? I personally think not, since they are acknowledged on the thread anyway.

Cheers

Dave,
Feel free to use the 19 pages for Arc Motion in the write up you will find in Members Docs.
For some items a simple definition just won't cut it or be of value without the understanding.

Hi Rich, I'm afraid I don’t know where that which you refer to is?

Dave,
Not sure about the copyright stuff but agreed it needs to be a collaborative effort.  Anyone wanting to contribute can download the last, edit and repost with a higher revision number. I think the curretn format is good.  If it grows we can eventually get a more permanant spot for it.  We could also make this a sticky topic in the members docs area but visitors cant see that board.

Have you considered doing a spread sheet for each of the terms and then providing a link to good sources of information on the subject?

I thought about a spreadsheet too, but wasn't certain everyone would have or need that type of software.
Most folks have at the minimum a word processor of sorts and hyperlinks can be created there.

Great idea on point a link. I would go for a brief description then have a link called "More Info".
The downside is that if you wanted to print the document you'd lose the ability to reference external material.
