    FWIW, I was just suggesting adding a table of contents (btw, this editor lets you do honest to pete tables, but I don't necessarily mean that) for the arcane chat and game threads to the original post of this thread... not trying to monkey with your excellent doc.

      I can update that page at any time, but I can't follow all the various teams and what-not.  But if someone puts it together, I can add it to the doc.

       

      Or I can hand it off to someone else.  The page is just a simple HTML document with a bit of CSS formatting.  I started it and I formatted it, but a lot of people contributed to it, so it isn't really "mine."  It could likely be copied and pasted into a post here.  But then that person has to take the responsibility for editing it and keeping it updated.

       

      As requested by SLR, I added additional terminology about the chat threads.  Anything else that you guys want to add, let me know.

        IMTPT Thread - Chat thread that began as a double post whereby the OP changed the name to I Didn't Mean to Post This (IDMTPT).  Soon enough, it turned into a chat thread, later revamped as the I Meant To Post This Thread (IMTPT).  Everybody is welcome to post.  However, PTOTD might be discussed.

         

        Umm.... what is PTOTD? Something of the day?

          Yes, but I didn't want to post the meaning there. Poop and the rest you got :-)

          never runs the tangents

            Those really long threads with like 200 some pages or that went on for years always scared me off. I felt like if I didn't wade through the whole thing I wouldn't **get it** and well yea that just scared me off.

              Thanks for posting this; it cleared up a lot.

               

              I don't know if this is sticky worthy, but I managed to save Goop's Roundtable Training thread. I say save because half of it is gone due to his ban.

                  I see the term "splits" used often. What are those?

                    Guess it was a stoopid question. My bad.

                      Splits are your pace per mile.  Each mile = split.  Also, if somebody said negative splits, means they ran X part (the first one) slower than the second part of the run.

                        Actually, that is the definition of "lap."  A split is the cumulative time (time at 5k into the race, time at 10k into the race, etc).

                          You're right. Except Garmin uses them interchangeably.

                                I noticed that the meltdown thread was locked, but the naked photo Pine Grove Dave posted never removed. Multiple people have expressed a wish that it be removed. It is a clear violation of the rules in this post. Might I suggest either amending the rules, or fairly enforcing them.
