After two weeks or something I found a button enabling polls... Wink So I added one.

Not that it will add so much, but please cast your vote.

Thanks!

To much of my surprise, "BTT" is beating the living hell out of "BCT" with over 70 percent for the votes.

With under ten total votes Wink

No.


I don't see the logic behind BTT, BCT seems more reasonable.
I always use BTCT. Why? Because it's BitcoinTalk, BTC + T == BTCT.
This is also a good abbreviation.

Besides, a poll won't give you accurate results at all. I've been telling this to people for quite some time now. There are too many shills and manipulators because of which it is hard to get accurate results.

BTT have no meaning. This is BitcoinTalk. You either have to use BTCT or BCT.

Why is my abbreviation not in the poll? BTCT is the most logical one.

It doesn't matter whether you use BTT or BCT,we dont have any word limits.We are free to type as much as we can.
Only 20% of the user's on this forum type Bitcoins as BTC.

Are you aware of that it is fully possible to have fun with nonsense...?  Wink We are not voting for presidency. Even the nature of language, which always develops, makes it impossible be vote get the correct answer.

I'll stick with BTCT, the most logical of all (which you forgot to add to your poll, even though I mentioned it).

Why would the first "T" be the most logical to include in your suggestion? Didn't Satochi call it only bc, but you wanna stick a "T" in there.

A combination of http://www.thefreedictionary.com/Onamonapia for the BT (say BT as if it was a word instead of each letter)
and C to shorten coin. Only for textual use, because saying B-T-C in person is stupid when you can use two syllables (bit-coin).

Also in this forum if you use
Code:
[btc]
you get this: BTC

Saying that you don't trust someone because of their behavior is completely valid.

BTC for Bitcoin and the extra T for Talk.
I always use BTCT. Why? Because it's BitcoinTalk, BTC + T == BTCT.

I was referring to BTCT. That T is odd and most likely just added for exchange purposes.

Hence, BCT is the most logical one, even if I use BTT which is illogical as hell.  Grin

I've always used BCT since BitCoinTalk always seemed to make a little bit more sense to more. I don't really understand how it would be BiTcoinTalk

I am personally fond of using BTCT to refer to this forum because bitcoin is abbreviated as btc and the last letter T is self-explanatory. If you may, please, add BTCT as an option there because I think it still make some sense in regards to the abbreviation of the forum's name.

I'd say BCT but I don't often use abbreviations. But BCT makes more sense that BTT because it's (BitCoinTalk). Anyway it's only my opinion.

Where do all these T-fetishist come from? Grin

A combination of http://www.thefreedictionary.com/Onamonapia for the BT (say BT as if it was a word instead of each letter)
and C to shorten coin.

But it doesnt make much sense to add a T because the abbreviation reads a bit like the word itself. An abbreviation should shorten a word. So adding signs because it makes the abbreviation sound like the word is somewhat contradicting.

Abbreviations mostly are only formed by the beginning letters of the part words in a word Bit-Coin-Talk. Only if the abbreviation is somewhat hard to say or when it should be brandable, then abbreviations for organisations and so on might have added letters that stand somewhere in the word in between.

Only saying... Tongue

Please ALWAYS contact me through bitcointalk pm before sending someone coins.
