Is it XenForo or xenForo?

    Being the hardcore stickler for standardization I am, I was wondering why the logo is "xenForo", with a small "x", and everywhere else you see "XenForo" with a capital "X". Is there a reason why the logo has a small "x"? What is the correct way to write XenForo? XenForo or xenForo?

    Why I ask. I've been writing "xenForo", because that has stuck in my head, but then I came here today and noticed, I've been doing it wrong, at least from a post writing standpoint. So, I'd just like to be "correct", when I write your software's name.

    Of course, one could say, "It really doesn't matter." But I would say, "Oh, it certainly does." Why? Because it is a trademark. Just like vBulletin (with the small "v") and "vB" where a "norm" too.

    Just sayin.

    Logo really should be redrawn in svg. It looks very poor on a high resolution screen

    The logo is just a stylized version of the name.

    The logo only has the capital "F" which gives it an aesthetically balanced look. When we write/type it we thought it should be with a capital "X".

    Fortunately, it is clear what is meant, which ever way it is written.

    For a stickler, it is XenForo.

    Ok, then I'll stop writing xenForo and now write XenForo. Although, I really thought xenForo was a stylized and cool way to keep that trademark/ logo, even in written form. ;) Especially the emphasis on "Four O" was important to me actually. LOL!:D

    The correct abbreviation is XF.

    The small x is only used in the logo.

    That applies how? I've seen images of "New York" stylized to be all lower case. Just because it is a proper noun doesn't mean it can't be stylized however someone wants.
