    Graph or Script?

    So, we're documenting our Dynamo graphs on our intranet site and I'm debating what to call them.
    I know "Graph" is the more technically correct name, but I'm afraid people don't understand what that means.
    Not to mention I don't want to sound too nerdy.

    Thingie.

    There was a whole discussion about this on the Dynamo Forum, when someone kept getting butthurt because people called them scripts. So now when people ask, i call them THINGIES. Because really, it doesnt matter. Call it a Graph, Script, File, Function, DYN ("din" or "dee why enn"), thingie. As long as you preface the documentation telling the user what your intent is, youre good.

    BTW: i don't say that to be facetious. We have a lot of elements in this program (and industry) that overlap in a number of places. Recently while recording a video for Foreground, i realized i was going to have to say "Floors or Roofs" about a thousand times, throughout the video. So at the beginning, i said "Floors or Roofs, both of which we will refer to as Slabs for the duration of this video," and then went with Slabs. I think if you qualify your intent, the consumer of the documentation will be good to go.
