When You Write a Topic

When writing or updating a topic, include the string XYZZY (upper or lower case) in the text wherever something needs to be filled in or you're not sure of your information.

For example:

  • Torque the veeblefleetzer bolt to XYZZY ft-lbs.

  • The alternator can supply up to a million watts. (XYZZY - Is that right?)

See below for an explanation of what the string XYZZY means.

What Does XYZZY Mean?

Xyzzy is a made-up word that has its origins in the game Adventure developed by Crowther and Woods in computing's early days. It has since gained traction as, among other things, a placeholder for missing information. A full explanation by the author of Colossal Cave Adventure, a later version of the same game, is available at http://www.rickadams.org/adventure/c_xyzzy.html.
