Personally, I's like to see a minor adjustment made to the definition for UCC,...as a member of SV fandom and a supporter of Chlois, I think we support a theory based upon sound reasoning and a variety of evidences that allow for the possibility of this development. We're not a bunch of "fanatics" as the current definition stipulates. On behalf of the Chlois nation, I'd like to see that "term" removed from the current definition immediately. It's a bit offensive. We're no more or less fanatical than any other portion of the SV fandom.

The term UCC was created by a non-Chlois fan to descrive fans of the theory as fanatics. It has since been embraced over by fans of the Chlois theory.

I do not think the existing definition is intended to call Chlois supporters fanatics, which was its original intent.

De-lurking to say maybe you could just have a brief sentence or two explaining how the forming of ship names works, and then each ship wouldn't need its own definition. Some mashups like Lion-El or Peepex would probably still benefit from their own definitions, but the myriad Chlark/Chlex/Clois/Clex names could be explained by something like "The beginning of Character A's name + the end of Character B's name = the ship name. Chl denotes Chloe, Cl denotes Clark, etc." since those are names that are familiar to everyone who watches the show, not just people who frequent these forums.

I would rather keep the joined titles - the naming dynamics are not always consistent (C = Clark and goes first in any pairing, unless paired Chloe in which case...). I prefer CTUN's idea of eliminating posts and putting the dictionary on the first few posts of the Dictionary thread.

I agree that, if room is really needed, the initials of the actors could go.

Perhaps we could adjust this definition to say the following instead:

UCC: the Unholy Cult of Chlois, a name coined for the fans who support the Chlois theory, originally used derisively but taken over with pride


I don't think fanatic is negative, though, by the way.


IMO, yes it is, especially the way this particular fandom throws the word around. I was curious about the exact def. and checked out a couple of online dictionaries which all described a "fanatic" as someone who has uncritical/unreasoning devotion to a cause.

If you're worried about the length of the dictionary, may I make a suggestion? Use the "sticky" post at the top of each page to direct newbies to the links for each subsequent page of the dictionary.

As an illustration, say that we now have enough terms to warrant using two posts for them. The sticky post at the top could read like this:

***

An alphabetical guide to all of the weird language you'll find about TWoP's Smallville forum.

For terms A-L, go here.
For terms M-Z, go here.

["Here" obviously referring to the link of the post with those terms.]

The sticky post can then be revised each time enough new terms are coined/remembered to require adding another post.

Mindwhammy- an episode revolving around a character (or characters) drastically changing their personality for some wacky reason. Hilarity ensues. By end of episode, character reverts back to normal with no memory of what happened or any lesson learned.

As the source for the term, I wanted to provide the definition I was thinking of when I said fanatics.

fanatic

adjective
1. marked by excessive enthusiasm for and intense devotion to a cause or idea.

You are right, some do take offense at the term fanatic, but none was ever intended. After all, I consider myself a card carrying member of the UCC.

I wonder if maybe we couldn't remove "nois" from the list since it's such a negative term? Or, if it's kept also add nclark and nlex since I think it can be argued that each of them is as about as far removed from the iconic character as is Lois.

This is a list designed to help newbies, so if a term is used all over the boards, it makes sense to have it in the dictionary, IMHO. Lots of people use the term "Nois." I've rarely, if ever, seen anyone use the terms "nclark" and "nlex," so there would seem to me to be no need to define them. And "Nois" is already correctly noted as a pejorative term in the dictionary.

I'll add DOMOS on my next round of adds (probably this weekend).

And EllyF is right about why Nois is here and not the others. Nois is a commonly used term on these boards. There's lots of stuff here, and it's not always flattering. But this is Television Without Pity.

Like "Mary Sue," this is a general fandom term, not a SV-specific one, but I wonder if we could define "shippers." It took me a while to grasp just what the heck it meant when I started becoming active in the fandom. Then again, I'm slow:-).

And in the very minor concern department, I believe "mind whammy" is correctly spelled with a Y, not an ie. Yes, I am anal...

Could someone define Model 503?


Bizarro was the first episode this came up. There are Spoilers that hint what it may be about, but for now the audience does not know.

The spoilers that may be relevant are: 503 may refer to a missing Lana clone. We have been told by an semi-reliable source that cloning is somehow involved in Lana's survival. People speculate that a clone of Lana might have been planted in the car so that when it blew up the police could find a body. If Lex realizes a Lana clone is missing, he may figure out she is still alive, and tried to frame him.

If you mean references to pyramids and lounging by the Nile, it's a joke because "the Nile" sounds like "denial" and therefore when you hear something unpleasant like a hypothetical Clana wedding, one says "I'm sure that Lex/Chloe/Lois/Jesus/Jor-El will disrupt it and in the meantime, I'm drinking a mint julep on the banks of de Nile."

If you're referring to what I think you're referring to, it's actually not SV specific. It just means someone would prefer to live in the land of denial (the Nile) as opposed to wanting to accept the facts as provided. Because hey, in the case of SV, the facts as provided often times suck.

leia, I understand your feelings that it's unfair there are so many negative Lana items on the list. But the list is just things that are commonly used on the board -- enough that people might get confused or ask questions. If Chloe Sue or Chloe Sue-llivan becomes used to that extent, I promise to add it.

Right now, I'm not adding anything anyway -- until there are at least a handful of things to add -- because the list is so big now that it's larger than the posting size limit, so I have to work some magic to get it that big.
