Default good website for terminology?

Anyone know a good website for disc golf terminology? I'm still having trouble with some of it. I was trying to find out what exactly a disc standing up means and can't seem to find the term. Thanks

I reckon that means that it moves from hyzer to flat, or that a roller moves to vertical.

The problem with some terms is that they mean different things to different people.

Here are few hundred posts on dg slang.
When I read "disc standing up", I thought you meant, Stick one in the mud/ground? Call it a 'Tombstone'

I've always taken "stand up" meaning moving from askew to vertical (roller) or horizontal (hyzer-flip). Also when a missed putt "stands up" and rolls away.

Someone should start an "urban dictionary" for disc golf. Of course that would mean about 100 entries for "stable."

Disc golfers refuse to agree on a consensus for disc golf terms. Especially a scooby. That means like 8 different things, lol.*

I agree that "standing up" is probably similar with a "flip up hyzer." Especially when you want the disc to stay hyzer and it just flips to flat and goes too straight. Sometimes a disc will climb on you if it flips flat, thus it "stands up" on you (often aided by headwind). Could be said with the roller too, like Armus said.

*I'm in the camp where scooby just means you just throw a disc upside down and skip it intentionally
