BitShares?bitshares ? bitShares ?
« on: April 14, 2015, 06:11:44 PM »

The logo says "bitshares" (there is a logo on top of the forum)

we often type "BitShares"

sometime even "bitShares"  .

or "Bitshares"

Should we get a unified way of spelling ?

I don't always spell it correctly but when I do it's BitShares.

I like "bitshares" , and it makes more sense due our bitshares logo that is a "b" ...  (and not a "B")

Agreed. IMO we should have "Bitshares" to refer to the DAC and "bitshares" to the shares themselves. I suppose it is too late for that? Camelcase for written words (as opposed to variables in a program) is just weird to me.

Also while we are on this topic, anyone opposed to declaring a bitshares symbol?

I like this idea better, day by passing day
It just looks cool and unique!

is a blank symbol representing space().  I think space() is also an interesting way to view it:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Space_(punctuation)

 +5%  Nice!  It's funny because I was just scribbling and playing around with symbols just a moment ago... and came up with just a short line at the top of the 'b' that goes to the left .. it looked ok..... anyways the one you have looks nice and there is already a unicode for it with all the various fonts: https://medium.com/down-the-hashrabbit-hole/to-or-not-to-4e952961f41
The design firm in that article suggests the lower & upper case versions of that symbol for the Bitcoin logo.  It looks pretty good to me.  Not sure how much traction it's getting in the Bitcoin world. 

I also was playing around with other ideas to represent  bitCurrencies.  Just trying to keep it simple.  I was thinking of making use of dots around the currency symbols:
1)  one dot above & below the vertical line or slash for the US dollar
2) one dot on both sides of the horizontal line for the Pound
3) dots at both ends of the curve for the Euro
4) dots below the vertical and on top of the two slanted lines for the Yen and Yuan...

Easy to write with pen and paper..... but you guys might have forgotten how to use a pen and paper.... :P  What do you guys think?

It's nice there is a symbol you can use.  To me slashes that cut all the way through lines or letters reminds me too much of 'slashing' or violence... like slashing/cutting something... or slashing/cutting prices or marking mistakes/misspellings.. etc.
