    Neat idea!

    I don't think the Travian forums allow you to use Indent / Tab or make a Table. So I can't contribute much to the layout. I see what you are trying to do by sorting it into Travian-related subheadings, but I think a Glossary / Dictionary would be better sorted into subheadings of A, B, C, D, and with better descriptions like you would find in a genuine Dictionary. For example...

    A - Travian related terms beginning with the letter A
    Acc Account; of or relating to something with a username and login
    Admin Administrator; someone who overlooks or manages a group of people
    AFAIK As Far As I Know; internet slang
    AFK Away From Keyboard; another term for BRB or 'not here'
    Ally Alliance; another term for your own alliance or a friendly alliance
    Anvil A large defensive army; the opposite of a Hammer
    Axe Axeman; a Teuton infantry troop

    B - Travian related terms beginning with the letter B
    BP Beginner's Protection; the 'safe time' given to a newly registered user
    BRB Be Right Back; internet slang
    BTW By The Way; internet slang
    Bug A technical glitch in the game; fault or problem

    C - Travian related terms beginning with the letter C
    Cap Capital; main village ingame where fields can be built above Level 10
    Cat Catapult; abbreviation applied to all tribes
    Cata Catapult; abbreviation applied to all tribes
    Cav Cavalry; units in the game on horseback
    CBA Can't Be Arsed; internet slang
    CBB Can't Be Bothered; internet slang
    Chief Chieftain/Senator; abbreviation for any conquering unit, regardless of tribe
    Cleaner Large wave of offensive troops with purpose of wiping all defensive troops in the village
    Clearer Large wave of offensive troops with purpose of wiping all defensive troops in the village
    Club Maceman/Clubswinger; a Teuton infantry troop
    Clubby Maceman/Clubswinger; a Teuton infantry troop
    Clubswinger An alternate translation for Maceman; a Teuton infantry troop
    Confed Confederation Pact; where two alliances form an allegiance
    Coords Coordinates; used to define the location of a village in the Travian 400/400 map
    CP (1) Culture Points; the points needed to create a new village
    CP (2) Confederation pact; where two alliances form an allegiance
    Crop lock The act of removing all wheat fields and locking the village into negative wheat caused by building consumption

    M - Travian related terms beginning with the letter M
    Mace Tear gas in the form of an aerosol spray used in self-defense

    Yes but it seems to indent vertically and horizontally as well? Rather than on the same line. Do you know a way for us to make it look normal? :p

    Acc
    Account; of or relating to something with a username and login
    Admin

    Hmm, the WYSIWYG editor of vBulletin doesn't allow tables, unfortunately.
    You could ask Laika to allow HTML in the official guides-section so you could use a table there, but it requires someone with knownledge of basis HTML to edit it once a new word has to be added.
    Hi there :p

    If it became an official guide, it would be Tullia changing it, and I have every confidence she would know how to work a table, so it's a possibility. But looking at the tab post again, it's not actually that bad, might even be better to have it all spaced out and less cluttered.

    If Post 1 is a large alphabet (ABCDEFG), then the player can click on a letter (like F), which will jump to the post which has all definitions beginning with F on it. So we put A on one post, B on another post, giving us the different hyperlinks.

    Word 1: Blablablablabla
    Word 2: Blablablablabla

    I like the idea of a letter-per-post, and alphabetical layout, to be honest.
