Vignette: (vin-yet)
A small scene usually 16x16 studs as max area.

WIP:
Work In Progress. We all have one.


Well thank you all for reading. This took me about 8 hours to type and research so I hope you learned something. If you have any additional info please post it. I want this to be complete and later when I get more time on my hands I might just decide to add some more. I did not add any theme acronyms. I know some but they are so random that it is not worth continuing.

Pretty nice list.I have a couple more :P : SCHOOL:That place thing that keeps you away from building. COLLEGE:Those places that are conveniently placed so you have to board at them,ensuring you are away from building(oddly enough,some people live close enough to these places,thus they only have the effect of school).

I thought there was a word in lego lexicon for the tremendous satisfaction one feels when two pieces of lego click together. Or maybe it was a technical term about the lego "fit" If such a word exists, I didn't see it in the list.

It's so glorious and wonderful. I love that you did that, and I enjoyed your sidenotes as well. I didn't know about half of those words, but that's probably because I'm never going to use them.

Cool! There were a few there that I hadn't heard. One I really want is the german word for the noise that LEGO makes; I found it on some abandoned Fan-site and then forgot it. I remember it being a good word, very German like. I was just reading your homepage and, well... your a TFOL?!?!? Seriously man you have my greatest respects. I kinda just assume you were AFOL because your MOCs were so epic. And they are as awesome as $£%+ by AFOL standards. Well done. I added you as an FB months ago from your Hobbiton but I saw your collaboration on eurobricks earlier. Seriously cool stuff. I've always been a LOTR fan and the idea of LOTR and Castle has always appealed to me. It's epic MOCs like yours that nudge my lazy little backside closer and closer to getting round to building in those themes. Your MOCs show some really good technique that I will hopefully use at some point. So yeah. Thanks.

You wrote "See Earling", but you didn't explain what 'earling' means (except in the comments section). Also, you should add another three: headlight brick, travis brick and Dreaded Sticker Sheet (DSS). The last one is pretty much self explanatory (Eurobricks reviewers use it a lot).

Actually I saw this one on LEGO.com. Unfortunately I have had a tough time finding a complete definition for this one. One site said it was the standard headlight brick while others said it was this. http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItemPic.asp?P=47905 That being the case the Half-Earling and Super-Earling respectively.http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItemPic.asp?P=87087 http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItemPic.asp?P=4733 Good question though.

Oh, the reference seemed different, though. Anyway: Biomech - bionicle MOC (or partially bionicle) capable of holding a minifigure inside a cookpit. This I hear and use a lot since I made many lol. NPU - New Part Usage. Innovative way to use a LEGO piece (quite common on FlickR).

No I did not forget it I decided not to include it. Young is a relative terms so it has no age definition. Kid not as much.

Quoting Chris Phipson This is a very helpful and well put together post. I asked Sean if he would be so kind as to add it to the official help group to help newbies get their feet wet. Thanks for posting this (and thanks for the joke, I giggled)! ~ Chris
Yeah you would. And thanks for the opportunity of getting recognition here.

I needed to learn all those terms. My friend had been asking me if I had ever gone into "darkages" and the amount of "greebles" he should put on his "mechas". I also think my friend dosn't know the difference between mechs and mechas because he tends to misuse them alot. =D

Thanks.. I knew most of them, but a few are new to me. I think swooshability is very important, especially for star wars vehicles.. it's 90% of their playability. Anyways, very very nice collection of lego terms. BTW: IMHO = In My Honest Opininion (IMO = In My Opinion). I always call LURPs SURPs (small instead of little)

MOTD mean MOC Of The Day. Hmmmm I said that a bignettes size may vary but the biggest it will get is 48x48 studs I would say.

Thanks but I chose not to do a couple of those just because of their complete randomness. However if you would give me the definitions for NPU and fleebnork I would consider putting them up if I like them.

Quoting High Fleet Admiral Samson(previously Commander Samson) hey where did you get the books
3 places really. Jack Bittner, Bricklink and I am not sure what the fourth is.
Quoting Brady G I can't remember the last time someone used KFOL. It's YFOL now! :D Stay with the community.
Young is a relative term whereas Kid(1-12 in my definition) is finite.
Quoting Rafael Quintal Very nicely done IMHO.
Thank you. Which means...?

Yes I did indeed. However I did include others from sites such as SEALUG, LUGnet, and even LAML(LEGO and more LEGO). I even dug so deep as to use booklets from conventions and such.

With my limited experience with the TLC and being only a semi-AFOL, I'm not gonna say much. But, because I'm your NLSO (basically a MISB), from my POV, your MOCs are SWOOSHABLE-- basically a KABOB with too much ABS looking to brick-build a cool bignette, vignette, or diorama out of some BURPs, LURPs, COWs, and CRAPP. Get on your WIP.

Yuri's right, swooshable was an asset to this list. there is also the thing that you do when you make a microship, where you put it up near the side of your head and let it slowly move across your field of vision, just like the very beginning of star wars episode four. I don't know what this impulse is called, but swooshability just reminded me of it. let me know if you find someone that has a term for it.
