Re: Elo - elo - ELO

Writing ELO and elo has consequences. When I entered this chess community I was confused by the different spellings, and I simply concluded that it must be some kind of abbreviation like CPU/cpu and did not bother to look up and started to imitate the spelling without knowing better... So, the only...

Re: Elo - elo - ELO

Elo is Correct. I guess doing otherwise would get one an F in some exam? Or fired by a boss? Being wrong has consequences, saying ELO or elo doesn't, other than getting under the skin of people that are looking for something to get offended about, but, if they like getting offended then one just sa...

Re: RMO - Randomized Move Order - yet another Lazy SMP derivate

Re: Elo - elo - ELO

So maybe it should be lower case when used in that context and upper case when when talking about the rating system.

Re: Elo - elo - ELO

I do not want to force anybody into a norm ;)

I guess continental Europe will continue to use Elo, English speakers already

Re: Elo - elo - ELO

Okay, I revoke my statement. Just looked up an realized that in English it is

Re: Elo - elo - ELO

How is spelling his name is ALL CAPS lack of respect? We're not talking about his surname anymore, we're talking about the system that is called the same, so intentions should be considered first, and I don't think anybody has every intended to show a lack of respect for elo, regardless of the capi...

Elo - elo - ELO

Just for the record, the Elo chess rating system is named after Arpad Elo, I
think we should show a little respect and write his name in the right way - Elo.
