    Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't see OP asking for any censorship nor saying that they're offended. So I'm a bit confused where those comments are coming from.

    All OP asked for is whether the playerbase has any ideas for abbreviating the trial in a different way. They did not claim to be victimized nor did they ask ZOS to ban or censor the SS abbreviation. Naturally, that could cause countle** i**ues :tongue: There's nothing wrong with looking at alternative shorthands for things, and many good ones were already suggested - calling it nSpire or vSpire for example should work without any problems.

    There'd be nothing wrong with ZOS coming up different names in the future either, for example calling some potential new trial 'University of Fire' rather than 'Fiery University' :wink:

    well lets see

    Steam Ship (SS name here)

    Space Station (as in ISS - intonational Space Station)

    Super Sonic

    Stainless Steel

    Structural Steel

    South Sudan (country, ISO/TLD code: SS)

    Solid State (as in SSD etc)


    Schutzstaffeln comes a long way down the list really of the hundreds of possibilities, unless it was conjoined for example with other words playing on negative connotation of combining them.

    I doubt the developers thought their new Daedric artifact would be called "Volendong" either.

    I am from society where for using those two lightnings or even mentioning anything non-negative about ***, you will be greatly despised, beaten and even may end up in jail... and still in 2 weeks of nSS and vSS runs I never have a single association with what you mention.

    I guarantee you that at some point in our history, some terrible thing happened with trees in full view of the perpetrators. Should we cut down all the trees to avoid the trauma of awareness of these random harmless coincidences?

    Apparently so:

    Hello,

    I just want to ask you opinions, I doubt developers thought this before making Sunspire raid, that its now shortened with SS. That is really unfortunate indeed, because for many people especially in NA and specific EU countries it brings really bad vibes. Maybe we could make some kind of other abbreviation like SuSpi, "LF2m SuSpi" for example? Any thoughts?

    WTF lol.

    Ok from now on I'm going to put in craglorn zone chat.

    LF DPS for the dungeon with three dragons and cat people with many chests.

    I hope that does not offend anyone.

    Guess what if we start changing everything that sounds bad or disapproved there is no end.
