Writing project's name incorrectly... What's it all about?

Added by Dragonji over 6 years ago

I see many people writing this project’s name as ET:Legacy in various places (code, site, news etc.) which is obviously an incorrect form. My question is why to do so? Doesn’t we all want ET:L to be & look like a professional project? Correct spelling is essential IMHO.

What I mean here is: correct writing form is "ET: Legacy" or "Enemy Territory: Legacy", not "ET:Legacy", at least surely in English and Polish part of internet...

Reference?

It may be just a trifle for you but keep in mind such small things set out your professionalism.

No offence intended in this post, just wanted to point out that it’s better to be gramatically correct if it’s not a problem

Beside it’s somewhat from not important how the name is written in internal development there are reasons to write it differently (keyword: search engines). I better show my professionalism (if there is any) on focussing real problems.

I don’t really think search engines care about how the code looks on github.

And I’m not talking about sources.

I don’t see any point to continue this discussion now - see 1st answer.
