    Since the abbreviation for Private Message is PM, I was thinking, what would the abbreviation for Private Conversation be? 'PC' is Personal Computer, so let's see what we think :)

    Feel free to choose, I'm going for 'Convo'

    I believe that it will persist as PM, personally.

    Initials can mean several things, it's just the context in which they're spoken about that identifies what they refer to. I see no problem with using PC.

    The Message is part of the Conversation, so it still works to say "I received a Private Message." :)

    I'd still go for the good old PM.

    PM will still work, you effectively receive a message (from the conversation) and not the conversation.

    I will continue to use PC though, it just goes to show how advanced XF is compared to the old software that still uses PM systems *walks away with nose in the air* :cool:

    I'm going to use convo, just because anything else would be confusing due to the naming, or the abbreviations.

    That confused me at first, and it still makes me think of personal computer.

    PC is also "politically correct" so I'd suggest PeCo...

    All logic becomes lost when it comes to internet abbreviations. I have a feeling PC will catch on.

    Hey, send me a PC.

    Um... what about... Yo, they hit me up on the Flipside? Nah, never mind. You'd have to deal with Master Blaster if you did that...

    Yes, I watched that back in the day lol...

    If I say, "I sent you a PC," I'd hope you know that I sent you a message, not a personal computer. :p

    I have a feeling that common forum-goers (aside from those of us who are seasoned administrators) will use the term PM regardless of what it's called in XenForo.

    Yeah, I don't think I'd use PC even if it was the standard, whenever I see PC to me for many many years it has just been Personal Computer, the opposite of a Mac. ;P

    PC = Politically Correct

    PC pisses me off, so I hope its not that.
