hmmm, ok - it's really a question of whether unofficial jargon like this
meets the standard of "unambiguously and clearly specifying the action" as
required for announcements in R478.  That's the only rule directly involved,
I think.

I tried to set out some guidelines for using jargon in CFJ 3663:

with an addendum here:

Not sure if those are complete/helpful.

One of the added bits in this case is the fact that "quang" is seemingly
context-dependent, but not everyone may be aware of that: the use-for-
offices seems to have been adopted by others, but I'm not sure about the
use-for-zombies (I didn't notice that one until now and I don't know who
else did).  And of course there's the introduction of other uses now.

In response, I ask for clauses in the ruleset which a judge might cite to

I intend to file a motion to reconsider CFJ 3692 w/2 Support.  It is
certainly relevant whether or not twg earned 5 coins.  It may be trivially
true and therefore not relevant to the future interpretation of "quang"
(because twg cited the meaning directly in the message), but the success of
the transfer itself is not IRRELEVANT.

This case concerns a message sent by twg on the eighth of January. In
message, twg defined two definitions to the word "quang" as an
term undefined by the rules. While it is true that shorthand is
tolerated in
Agora and is somewhat of an integral part of our culture, what with
constantly using "TTttPF" to correct our mistakes, it is also true that
terminology only gains its meaning from the acceptance of the Agoran
community at large and not from the rules themselves. Because of this, I
judge this case IRRELEVANT.

because why not, I CFJ on the following:

In the message quoted below, twg successfully earned 5 coins for
the Treasuror's most recent report.

Defining some shorthand:
To "quang" an office is to earn 5 coins for publishing that office's

To "quang" a player is to act on the player's behalf to transfer all
liquid assets to oneself.
