Hi all, I've added a feature (on a suggestion from Surprise (Jan David) (http://shipmodeling.net/vb_forum/member.php?userid=2920) ) where adding to the Glossary Section will increase a member's post count (one count per term submitted)
Here's some examples:
JD's profile (http://shipmodeling.net/vb_forum/member.php?userid=2920)
One of JD's posts (http://shipmodeling.net/vb_forum/showthread.php?p=19187#post19187)
Glossary submission (http://shipmodeling.net/vb_forum/glossary.html#contrib) (near the bottom of the text box)
Search results (http://shipmodeling.net/vb_forum/glossary.php?do=dosearch&keywords=Surprise)

Hopefully this will get more members to post glossary terms. The glossary has been kind of empty.

Since my progress on the Holland sub has been slow of late, I've added some of the more obscure shipwright's terms to the glossary (some more obscure I daresay than Wirewolf's?) :wink: .
Most came from an excellent Google book that some of you may know about: THE ELEMENTS OF WOOD SHIP CONSTRUCTION by WH Curtis (http://books.google.com/books/pdf/The_Elements_of_Wood_Ship_Construction.pdf?id=oq5CAAAAIAAJ&output=pdf&sig=ACfU3U0oYyZ5lSm6Zo2ul1IrLFlPqhdQXA)
The attachment shows one of the many excellent illustrations in the book.
As for the Holland, I need to shoot some updated photos as I've added the interior bulkheads and the rear machinery space deck. I need to add the superstructure next (glued up last nite) so I can prime paint the hull inside and out. Then it'll be on to a very long list of interior and exterior details to be built and added.

I was just wondering if there could be a breif definition of Nautical Term and Shipwright Term on the submission form. I was second guessing myself when I added "Brackets" the sides of the gun carriage.
