Idea: a list with abbreviations, so that new players can read themselves up to speed.

I wouldn't mind maintaining a thread with common abbreviations that we as DDRNL members could come across. I'd probably put it in the 'Dance Dance Revolution / In The Groove' subforum. Let me know if you like the idea, if you do I'll create it.

If there are any abbreviations that you've come across and would like to be included, you can let me know.

I can probably list a bunch of names for common patterns/moves in ITG, including some questionable yet interesting moves such as the swipe that was recently innovated here in one-foot competitions 8-)

Hmm yeah, I might as well turn it into a 'DDRNL's dancing game glossary' thread with common abbreviations and terms. Would include the stuff you come across in the In The Groove, DanceDanceRevolution and StepMania scene. And of course anything exclusive to our scene, as Fietsemaker mentioned 8-)

I'll whip up the thread tomorrow and throw in a bunch of stuff that I think would be useful, and continue to update it with anything that gets suggested by others :)

Yes like that Dawnmage.
Oeh oeh, and how about a list called: What the hack are all these settings in stepmania, part 23.

I like lists :P

Good idea,

I always had questions like "What does PA stand for" (Perfect Attack, which stands for hitting only perfects)

I remember not knowing for a long time what footswitches were despite seeing the word so often.
Nel already saw it, but I suppose I'll link our little glossary in this thread for completeness sake (just in case anyone else finds this thread and is interested) :p

Yeah exactly Magix :P the idea behind our own thread here though is to keep it relevant and actual. A big big amount of the terms in DDR Freak's dictionary are rarely used these days, or not relevant to Dutch players (due to the scene/availability of machines/etc.)

You could consider our list somewhat of an 'essentials' collection :)
