Trophy wording inconsistency

    On the main forum display page in the top right by your stats they are simply called "Points" - on the member 'card' they are called "Trophy Points" and in these super popular sigs and elsewhere they are just called "Trophies" - seems the wording should be more consistent.

    I think points is a valid shortening of trophy points. it's just me and erik decided to use "trophies" as a shortened version, can't really hold that against xf :D

    I think he means within the forum itself, like on the help page where it is referred to as trophies: http://xenforo.com/community/help/trophies

    Yeah, I didn't just mean the sig though those are the most popular.

    yes, they are referred to as Trophies, but the values associated with them are referred to as Points or Trophy Points everywhere but the sigs. Unless I've not checked somewhere

    I'm just saying 3 different terms are used to refer to the same exact value: Trophies, Trophy Points, and Points... I'd think they should all just be: Trophies.

    is there anywhere on the site (other than sigs) where the actual points are referred to as trophies? if not, this is a non issue

    That's a list of the trophies, with the points they each have. The points themselves are never actually named.

    I think that's splitting hairs personally but whatever, if the powers that be are OK with it, it's not something I'm going to lose sleep over.

    You have trophies, worth Trophy Points. These trophy points are referred to as Trophy Points or just Points. It's not really splitting hairs, it's that points are a valuation of A trophy. Anyway, would like to here from someone else ;)

    The "points" reference should probably change, but there is a distinction between a trophy and trophy points. (Likewise, gamer score and achievements on the Xbox.)

    So is 'trophies' kind of being mis-used on sigs? It should probably be 'points'- I just don't see what the difference is between trophy points and trophies- it seems like people are assuming 1 point = 1 trophy, but I take it that is not the case.

    yes, trophies is being misused on the sigs, partially my fault there :D

    I have no problem with you taking the blame for that :)
