Xen or xF for addons?

    Was thinking about it. Xen is a generic name and seems to be a safer option to take should problems with original developers arise later on. xF is more like a trademark to me.

    I like the name Xen Add-Ons... but XF Add-ons would do well do I think.

    I don't think they should be officially labeled anyway, since some may think that they're official add-ons, not 3rd party options.

    I haven't really given it much thought to be honest... though taking a contraction of 'xen' and 'add-on' you get 'Xenon' which is kinda cool ;)

    eXtension? They all work well.

    Instead of a whole new domain for modifications, you should just reference some new categories for them (at least to begin with). That was XF has a centralised location for the best possible support ;)

    Actually, on second though, Xtensions or any variant is too reminiscent of that male "booster" that plagues late night television with their infomercials. But that may just be a US thing.

    Ha, yeah I'm not sure it'd be a good idea to use that name.

    I'm going for 'Xen', you have to admit XenArcade is way better than xFArcade

    I think Xen will be the prefix for all modifications.
    XenGallery
    XenAlbums
    XenCalendar (this sounds like Zen Calendar so I had to add it even though it's default)
    XenArcade

    Kier and Mike should reserve the Xen prefix for official mods only :p

    I think it's better to have them like this:
    XFGallery
    XFCMS
    XFBlog
    XFWhatever

    Because they are ll add-ons for XF (XenForo).

    Well, Just my 2 cents. :D

    XF is used in many ways, xen not. So it will be better to use xenXXXXXX

    I dare you to now call "modifications", "xenons". :D i.e. Let's go and pump some xenons into the forum.

    (That was a joke. Kinda.)
