I'm sure others are slightly (or even more than slightly) annoyed that there are two acronyms commonly being used!

    The devs say ESO. So this must be the right answer.

    You win. I agree with you. Good queso is hard to beat. Especially with some slow cooked brisket in it. Damn straight.

    I agree. Considering that the name of the game is Elder Scrolls Online and not The Elder Scrolls Online, it seems to be a rather open and shut argument.

    The trademark is "The Elder Scrolls"

     

    There is a derived trademark "The Elder Scrolls Online".

    Tell me what you see on the top of this web page.

     

    NOTE:  It's true that their web site uses ESO as the TLA when referring to the game, but the logo and trademark spelled out includes "The".  I guess they wanted 3 letters instead of 4.  If they want it abbreviated ESO but called "The Elder Scrolls Online" I guess that's their choice.

    It is odd to include "The" as part of an acronym.

    TNFL

    TNASA

    TNSA

    TUSA

    Further oddity is that the word "the" is not a part of their logo.

    Whichever; as long as I know what you mean. 
  • grndzrogrndzro Reno, NVMember Posts: 1,117 Uncommon

    The is a descriptor. It is not part of the name.

    It is all moot though I'm sure the TS is the only one with a horse in this race.

    I would love to vote for NASA

  • RedCurryRedCurry Frisco, TXMember Posts: 70 Uncommon

    I agree that "the" should be left off of the acronym.

    Also, while on the subject of "the", since when is it okay to alphabetize titles by the word "the"? This site does it, as do many others. I thought that you alphabetized with the first letter of the first word after "the" in a title, no?

    Or everyone could call it what they want and go about their day and stop trying to make everyone conform.

    It's obviously TESO...in the same way that I went to THE Ohio State University...
  • HomituHomitu Hometown, HIMember Posts: 2,030 Uncommon

    Never make an acronym longer than it needs to be.  You're using an acronym in the first place to shorten the real name.
