* '''[[Administrivia/ThereIsNoSuchThingAsNotability Notability]]''': An odd one, in that we apply the definition used by {{Wikipedia}}, but are against it. We don't require a work to meet any standards of notability. As long as the work is published, and the page for it doesn't cover content that [[Adminstrivia/TheContentPolicyAndThe5PCircuit crosses certain lines]], that page stays here.

* '''Notifier''' or '''notification''': A predefined message that can be sent to any troper from the article history page, informing them of a common error that they are making (or just thanking them for being awesome).

* '''Sockpuppet''', or '''sock''': An additional account made by the same person. Sockpuppets are allowed on the forums when they are part of games or roleplays. On the wiki, they are frowned up on as they often signal a ban evader. When adjudicating a ban, moderators will search for sockpuppets and apply the same action(s) to any found.
