    Hi all!

    We've been having a behind-the-scenes discussion about the correct acronym to use for the webOS Nations site. Nothing formal, just personal discussions. There are a few suggested choices, so just for the fun of it I thought I'd poll the members. When we were PreCentral, the acronym was easy - P|C. How do all think the site should be referred to now with the new name?

    Here are the choices so far:

    1. WOSN
    2. WON
    3. WOsN
    4. webOSN
    5. WN
    6. The Site Formerly Known as PC

    Ok... at least one of the first 4.
    Vote on the choices above, or write your own if it isn't listed!

    This isn't anything 'official'.... just curious to see what everyone thought.

    BTW... keep in mind that WON is also a unit of currency in Korea, so search rankings wouldn't be the best with that one. Just sayin'...

    Maybe ask the boss man? WN.

    Or, if you're like me, webOS Nation. Because typing ain't hard.

    I still call it PreCentral, because I'm stubborn.

    I'm with Derek... although for shorthand I usually end up typing webOSN.

    WOSN reminds me too much of the World Series of Poker (WSOP).

    Well... if someone had chimed in on our 'other' MN thread.... Sheesh
    Added 'WN' to the poll.

    or

    - wOSn

    With the open sourcing, the are actually two OS's concerning this nation.

    An acromyn to properly reflect this would be:

    We BOSs Na!

    I don't think I've ever used an abbreviation for webOS Nation... neither WebOS Internals. Or for that matter, webOS. The only time I am ever inclined to use a webOS related abbreviation is WOSQI.
