Metric definition glossary

Post by jim »

Could we have a page that defines what these metrics are. More and more people are making posts without any explanation at all. Either they need to define it in the post or have a glossary of definitions so that people could check that out.

If someone makes an HTML page with links, I'll post it.

we can't do better than those pages, but a grb wiki could be fun.
We'd have to ensure that The Great OBP Guam Epidemic of 1993 is not underrepresented in the GRB Wiki.

I guess I don't care if there is a glossary, but could there be an effort by posters to link to some description of what they are describing? I think it would really help starting conversation.
