Small Name Change

Postby Prison Officer UK » Tue Oct 23, 2012 1:49 pm

Small but never the less, can we get the name "Guard" changed to "Officer" we really do a lot more all day than stand around guarding things, this isn't a museum! :mrgreen:

yep.

I actually think it would fit more, but really it's not important whatsoever.

And thus began the great Nope-Yep War of 2012 that would quickly ravage these once fine fora.

Oh, I know. Changing a bloody name that is probably only dictated in a couple bloody strings in the game's code? How difficult. Would probably require a complete recode, I mean, wow, what a change.

It would take a grand total of maybe 5 seconds to make the change. Find/replace and/or regex works wonders.

Nice that we have people who are in the know though and can speak to us on the Developer's behalf and make decisions for them...

Also, why is there no "sarcasm" tag for HTML yet?

No, it should clearly be "gaoler."

You might do more than just guard, but hell - my prison guards might as well be actors for all the use they are :P

If we're going with that, can we also have Sylvester Stallone? He -DOES- know 'the luh' :P
