This is just a question out of curiosity, and I was wondering if anyone knows the answer before the software comes out. Is it possible to rename certain parts of the system like this?

Trophies -> Achievements
Alerts -> Notifications
Conversations -> Private Threads
Messages -> Posts
etc...

Again, I don't know why you would want to rename any of this. I just want to know if the option is there. :p

The system uses what's called "phrases" which should enable you to rename every text string.

This is obviously necessary for when translating from English to other languages.

That would require code edits and would be more trouble than it's worth.
Every time you upgraded you would have to redo the edits.

That's what I thought. :p Thanks for your help! I can't wait to get my hands on xenForo on the 5th! :)

If you're really fussed about it, you can do the edits. I edit my current software so that it fits my needs.

Nope, I'm not really fussed with it. It was more of a general question than an actual intent to do this. But thanks! :)
