You have to be opposite to the norm Paul- emphasising the middle letter.

Naturally, I like keeping the individual letters the same as how their punctuation is in the phrase writte out. However, I like having either the middle letter or outer two letters capitalize while the other(s) lower case. OtC is fine with me in that sense.

OT sounds perfect for the abbreviation the forum name , while as OTF, the F seems odd

You have given the two options, namely, OTF? OtF? Are we to choose one of them only or can we suggest other ones also?

I think the abbreviations are not pre-decided. They come out of the discussions automatically in due course. So, let us wait for some discussions to take place.

And the abbreviations are needed for names that take long to pronounce. Off topics is a small word anyway, so abbreviation is not really needed.

“OffTopicers” is the first natural guess of every person. There should be some twist. Make it “OffTopikers” (with a K) as cers might get pronounced sers.
