I've seen this game abbreviated a few ways, both here and on other sites. I was just wondering which abbreviation everyone prefers over here. The choices are...

KOTOR
KOTR
KOR
SWK

If you know of any more, I'll add them to the poll. ;)

Personally I like the sound of KOTOR - although if you do a search for that some Greek island comes up. :D I'm not very fond of SWK, because it's too much like SWG...

Maybe just Knights... ;)

SWK or SWKnights.. :)

KoR or Knights....[sounds similar to my beloved Neverwinter NIGHTS.....]

i got to go with kotr...

kotor is to long

SWknights looks like a screen name

and i just don't like the others...

Com Raven

Hmm, why don't you take KoR instead of KotR ??

KOTOR for me :)

Com Raven

Raven rules ??

Now that's a sig to my liking...;)

Hey, U got another fan, apparently. :D

KOTOR.

Errr, Wraith, why exactly do U think KOTOR is too long? It's only one letter longer than KOTR? :D :D :D

And Kor sounds like a pigeon. :D

Com Raven

Kotr sounds russian to me.....

narodnaja wolja...

Kotor the Barbarian...

Knights all the way!

I rather play something called Knights over anything called.... KOTOR

sounds like I'm a star trek geek dressed up as a Klingon.:rolleyes:

Com Raven

Right, I didn't think about that, but it has something klingonish about it...

i've gotten used to kotor, and refuse to change. :D

Com Raven

There comes the "everything new is bad and negatively influences my children "faction....:)

kor reminds me of something else...

I think it was a movie a saw once. Something about a dark palace that changes location evernight or something like that.

thought the more i see it knights is starting to look better...

Com Raven
03-08-2002, 11:42 AM
K fellow knights, we need some more votes to get past those KotOR heretics...

Wraith 5
03-08-2002, 01:11 PM
i'd change my vote but it won't let me... :(

I think you mean Krull. :D

After due consideration, Knights is probably more appealing. It rolls off the tongue in one syllable, and probably doesn't require too much explanation... :)

Com Raven
03-08-2002, 06:59 PM
Lol, Krull the Conquerer...

or was it the destroyer ??

Jan Gaarni
03-09-2002, 07:17 AM
I thought it was Kull.

On second thought, Knights do seem better. Cooler too. :)

Com Raven
03-09-2002, 07:47 AM
Nah, you sure it was Kull ??

Eets
03-09-2002, 07:53 AM
Yeah, it was Kull. :D

Com Raven
03-09-2002, 08:21 AM
Hmm, in that case...

You all have way too much sparetime !!!!

KOTOR is fine by me, I think I've gotten used to it as well.

Com Raven

Ahh, he made the KotORs lead again...

The movie was Krull, not Kull, see here:

Had to toss this in, just cause Krull was one of my favorite movies way back in 1983 lol

I too gotta stick with KOTOR. :p

KotOR, its just the generally accepted one that I'm used to ;)

Nothing like ressurecting the dead so close to Halloween! :D

I gotta go with KOTOR as well. :)

err...ever thought of looking at the date of the last post?...you just woke up a long dead thread :redskul: ...last post was made 2 1/2 years ago... :D

and since then, the game has been released and KotOR has been officialy adopted :p

I usually say swkotor but i'll vote for kotor.

Almost everywhere you'll see KOTOR and KOTOR II. I like KOTOR

when i 1st got kotor i kept referring to it as knights of the old republic even though i had a friend who called it kotor however i joined lucasforums and via these threads i was converted into calling it kotor so guess what i voted lol :D :D

Since the ghosts have been resurrected....

KotOR. But with TSL coming it's turned into K1 & K2 or TSL, respectively.

Or KOTOR2 :D

I say KotOR 2 and TSL are going to be used.

K2 for me is the 2nd highest mountain in the world and a brand of sport equipment ( I had some K2 skis many years ago :D )

Hmm, seeing how this thread has been wholly resurrected, maybe I'll update it.. *messes with the poll*

Mono_Giganto
11-01-2004, 04:30 PM
But KOTOR and KOTOR2 are two different things... LoL whatever I don't care. :p

not wanting to point out the obvious to a super moderator

but since all the people on this thread have answered the poll already we cant actually vote for our favourite abbreviation of kotor2

so would it make sense to then make a brand new poll and put a link in this one

just a thought :D

Eets
11-02-2004, 11:09 AM
Yeah, I thought about that.. But then I didn't care.. :D

So? No one knew what the name of that movie was. And the post was new to me. Roll your eyes all you like, if you don't want an old post revived, delete them. :p

Gotta point out the thread seems even more popular resurrected than it was originally! :D

Ghola as a new poster I can see where you would resurrect an old thread as all threads are new to you, I did so myself when I was new, just be sure to check the dates of the last posts, as the moderators don't like bumping ancient threads unless you have a heck of a new revelation to add to the main thread topic (And the movie Krull was not this threads main topic).

Also Darth333 is a Moderator, and as such, if Darth333 was saying something about avoid resurrecting an old thread, and to look at the date of the last post (All of which she was well within her right to do) you should probably listen to what she says and not get all defensive and sarcastic or she might loose her Moderator Force Lightning powers on you. ;)

I am most humbly apologetic. I was not aware of the gravity of my offence. (Still am not, to be honest, can't see the reason why this is an issue at all).

But I apologize, and will take my posting elsewhere.

Hey, don't worry with that it's just that continuing a conversation 2 1/2 yrs later was kind of funny. Next time just look at the date of the last post ;)

KOTOR

Augustus_Leto

I think KOTOR, because if you had SW for every Star Wars game there was, you wouldn't be able to recognize certain games as quickly. Also, shouldn't we have different polls for I and II? Because I actually prefer TSL for II, but I couldn't vote twice! :mad: Lastly, what is KOTR? I'm pretty sure 'Old' is a more uncommon word than 'of' Who ever said that?

I'll go with KOR. Sounds a lot like Jaden Korr.
