    Do we have a terminology thread or forum? I am a fairly educated gal but as a newbie, some words, terms and "slang" are unfamiliar to me. I don't mind looking them up, but if I leave a thread or hop to a google window for a minute it is pretty common that my BYC app glitches and I have to close it and reopen. Perhaps I am just not seeing one?
