    OK, I've been away from the forums for a bit and have a missed a lot of conversation. [​IMG]

    So what has turned out to be the common abbreviation for XenForo?

    XF? Xen? Foro? Something else?

    (Yes, this will impact the name of an an add-on. [​IMG])

    I think XF is the commonly-used abbreviation, though Xen is sometimes used as a prefix for add-ons and things (XenMedio, XenMoods, etc.)

    I use XF. I think that's what was intended.

    On a side note, I get really peeved by the people who write, "Zen". Damn idiots! :p

    If I remember correctly (from my time on staff here), IF an abbreviation must be used, XF is preferred.

    xF > XF

    There's an old thread about this somewhere, but it was basically thrown back and forth about the fact that while the logo shows "xF," the "appropriate" abbreviation is "XF."

    XF when I refer directly to the product, XFL when I refer to the company behind the software.

    If you search my recent activity, you'll find it. ;) The cogs are starting to turn a bit.

    The voters (and Kier :p) have spoken, XF it shall be.

    Thanks everybody for the input. :)

    Really ?

    I think the confusion lies with many initial xenForo users coming from the vBulletin community which was very often shortformed as vB. With the official logo using a small letter for the first letter it seems like it was a deliberate attempt to solidify the short form as xF.
