Specific Article Disucssion -

Well…This morning I was searching around the inter-tubes this morning hoping to find any good news about SWTOR. And not surprisingly I found nothing of interest. The last few “Fan Fridays” have, for lack of a better phrase, sucked Ewok pit hair. One thing I did notice is there are tons of different abbreviations people use for the game.

Now I know the game name is technically Star Wars: The Old Republic, so in theory the more accurate abbreviation is SW:TOR (or visually cooler SW:tOR). Unfortunately I’m not a huge fan of colons. Not that kind…but it does remind me, I have to schedule a Dr’s appointment soon. For me the best abbreviation is SWTOR. It’s quick and easy with no pauses while typing it to hit that nasty evil colon. People who use just TOR, IMO suck. TOR isn’t as descriptive of the game, and if you actually do a Google search, you get tons of random additions. Tor Anroc from WAR, a random software development thing for onion routing (whatever that is), and I think there’s a WoW server I’ve seen come up with Googling TOR Guild. Yes-I like to check my ratings in various searches to see where I stand. =)

So here’s what I’m wondering. What do you think Star Wars: The Old Republic initials should be and why? My vote is for SWTOR or if it must have that colon, SW:tOR as a distant second. In no way should TOR even be considered, but that’s just one humble mans opinion.

The poll is on the right hand side of my site, would love to see what it totals up to over the next week or so.
