    Your a new member yourself. I'm estimating 7 or 8/10 new users don't use the forums anyway. Therefore not able to read this, and not subject to language that isn't understandable. Even half of this list is common english. But yeah, good idea. I'm sure at least one or tw noobs will find it handy.
