We don't have a list at the moment. Some will be explained in the tutorials, but the best thing to do is guess (and maybe make a list for the rest of us to see/correct/comment on on the Wiki site).

The general idea is that the names should be "obvious" and consistent across all applications as much as possible.

A table with the VERY OBVIOUS fields can be found at _fields

Anyone who knows some more is welcome to add them to the table.
Note: I don't use "Friend"-feature on this forum out of principle. Ah. And by the way: I'm not on Facebook either. So don't be offended if I don't accept your invitation/friend request
