Thread: Clarification of abbreviations

    Default Clarification of abbreviations

    In reading the Chargestone Cave page I came across the terms/abbreviations 1F, B1F, and B2F.

    I dug through the FAQ's and other area, but I could not find what they mean.

    Adding these, and other used abbreviations, to a global glossary would help other new members like myself.

    In the order you posted: First Floor, Basement First Floor, Basement Second Floor. Think of it as elevetar shorthand if you want. Any Questions about those? I can't answer your second question, sorry.

    Yeah, these terms tend to be more common in Japan. It is a very efficient and consistent, and I wish they were used more often. Also, they are used in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon to number the floors, as well as in the main series games in elevators.

    And also in some main series games where the floor number comes up when you go onto a new floor.
    Thanks Jo The Marten for the avatar.
    Demons run when a good man goes to war.
    Night will fall and drown the sun,
    when a good man goes to war.
    Friendship dies and true love lies,
    night will fall and the dark will rise,
    when a good man goes to war.
    Demons run, but count the cost.
    The battle's won, but the child is lost.

    I haved noticed that so far all of the replys relate to the floor numbers, yet no one has said anything about his prosposeal for a glossary.

    I guess we could make something like Appendix:Metagame terminology, but with official terminology rather than fan terms. I don't know how big it would be though.

    im a little unsure. "1F" and related abbreviations are extremely well known, and for the most part pretty self explanatory.

    We could redirect them somewhere. Do we have a generic "basement" article (like forests and caves)?

    Well, I don't really see what we could put on a "basement" article. I mean, cave, forest (which isn't even in the mainspace yet), and desert are all really common types of locations. Basement... well, Galactic HQ and two of the department stores have them, but that's about it, and there isn't that much to put in the article anyway.

    I kinda agree with DETH though. They are pretty common, self-explanatory terms; if we can come up with a decent list of official terminology to put on a list, I have no problem with including them, but we don't need to make a page just for them.
