  1. Thank you for using the C word. I would have used the S word since I lack self control 🙂

  2. Nice. The word “engagement” should probably be in the glossary as well. It’s almost impossible to hear about gamification without being promised, over and over, that gamification increases engagement.

    Since engagement is a buzzword and rarely defined, we generally nod our heads, saying, “Hmm that’s good,” without really knowing what it means or what difference it makes.

    Maybe a definition in the glossary would begin to de-buzz the word.

    Excellent list! I agree with the meaning of all the terms (I just didn’t know “naches”, but makes sense). Good work!
