Listen To Me! A 'New' Aspect of the Cove - A Definitions and Acronyms page?

I am considering adding somthing along the lines of this:

Quality and Standards Terms and Definitons online.

There are several other places where this information is online, but what are your thoughts? Should I add a *definitions and acronymns* page to the site?
Thanks to Marc for your informative Post and/or Attachment!

I think it's redundant and there are already similar resources on the web like www.acronymfinder.com.

I agree with Al. Those folks at acronym finder are pretty good at updating.
When I first bookmarked them, they had 232,000 definitions. Today, the count is
The web's most comprehensive dictionary
of acronyms, abbreviations, and initialisms.
398,000+ definitions!

In lieu of our own acronym page, lets just give them a nice link from FAQ or a sticky thread in
How To in the Forums
Detailed Use Instructions - This forum contains basic information on 'How To' do things, such as Add a Poll to a Thread or an Attachment to a Post in a Thread.

Agree

I tend agree with the above.
A link or two would be sufficiant. Also saves on server space.

On the other hand adding an acronym page might draw more users to the site.
Sounds like a pretty major undertaking though.

Helpful

I think it would be an incredibly helpful addition. I know the majority of the folks here are way past the basics, but a list of definitions and acronyms would be a great kindness for those of us who are trying to self-educate using this website.
Thanks to Robyn for your informative Post and/or Attachment!

I've got to agree with Al and Wes that it's redundant - a google search easily turns up a couple of sites that can be used to determine the meaning of acronyms, and most of them include quality related acronyms.

I Say...

I think it would be a good addition. Sure, there's other places on the web, but enter ISO into http://www.acronymfinder.com/ and you get 40 answers (is it Industry Standards Organization (IEEE-ISTO)?), CAPA gets you 19 (Computer Aided Problem Analysis, Computer Assisted Personalized Approach or Corrective Action/Preventative Action?) SPC nets 82 (is it Software Process Control or Statistical Process Control?).

Folks with some prior knowlege can pick out what it probably is, but students or new quality people could get lost.
