I'm still kinda new to mocpages ... and i sometimes come across abbreviations, acronyms, and phrases that i'm not sure what they mean.

So, i thought this would be a good place for me (or anyone else) to post questions ... and for anyone who might know the answer to post a responce.

For example ... what's the difference between Vignettes and Dioramas ?

And what are "greebles" and "WIPs" ... i think i know what they are, but i'm not sure if i'm right ... can someone let me know if i'm right (or wrong) ... and can somebody provide a short definition for those two words if i'm wrong ?

So, i'm just guessing here, but is this what they are ? ...

"Greebles" ... very cool and intricate details ?

"WIPs" ... unfinished and (or) abandoned mocs that were (or are about to be) scrapped ?

Greebles-sort of stuff that you put on a starship engine to make it look futuristic, high-tech, or just plain cool.

WIPs-Works In Progress. Stuff you haven't finished working on yet.

Dioramas are bigger, and may contain multiple minifigs and vehicles, and vignettes are very small, usually containing 1-4 minifigs, and 1 vehicle, if any.

Technically, a vignette is a moment in time; a sort of capture of a scene. In Lego, though, yeah. A small diorama.
