    Okay, need some expert advice, but since that's not available I guess I'll just have to ask you guys. Over the last few days, our development forum has gotten rather sordid as a result of a difference of opinion on the name of our mod. One group, we'll call them the red team, seems to think that Jail Break is two words and that all who oppose them will be crushed under their mighty heel, while another, we'll call them the blue team, is of the opinion that Jailbreak is, in fact, a single word and that all who disagree should have their heads checked, after having been forcibly removed and fed to SnowDog's pet. A third party, that will remain colorless is of the opinion that, although it's a single word, It looks better with a captial 'B', as in JailBreak. Your opinion would be most welcome.

    Toss a coin.

    Heads: Jail break
    Tails: Jailbreak
    Sideways :con:: JailBreak

    but so many games uses initials: INF, TO, SF, U4E, UTWF, NE, TTR, SAS, P19 etc it's getting a little unoriginal

    I suggested on IRC that it be called 'Carnival of the Vegetables'.
    I think it was well-received. :D

    seriously, I think UTJB is n00b-unfriendly. It's fine to use that as a shorthand, in the same way that one writes "TO" for "TacticalOps", or "INF" for "bunch of gun-loving trigger-happy l00ns". :p

    I'm happy with JailBreak of Jailbreak.
    My big dictionary has the word 'jailbreak' -- one word, so 'Jailbreak' is the most correct, but 'JailBreak' may be preferable for readability & for effect.

    Call it UT JailBreak and people will still call it UTJB. :)

    JailBreak looks more like the way most people write UnrealTournament. It looks more like a proper name than two seperate words. It looks stronger than the single word "Jailbreak".
