Mac Rumors and MacRumors

Call me OCD but I noticed the inconsistent naming of the site. On the home page the title reads Mac Rumors. The logo and the forum both name the site MacRumors. Was that intentional?

I see it. On the right side in the tan section titled "Recent Comments" Also the browser tab title has the space as well.

You're OCD...and so am I as I, too, have noticed this before but opted not to point it out. However, since I'm here, I'll also point out that the home page is titled 'Mac Rumors: Apple Mac iOS Rumors and News You Care About' yet the text below the logo is arranged as 'news and rumors you care about'.

There are numerous other little things like this throughout the site that don't affect functionality or much of anything else other than, well, my OCD but I won't hijack this thread and list them all out (or at least I won't do so now).

It's right here:


I'm surprised this was noticed earlier given that many Mac users (including myself) have OCD tendencies

There's a lot.

logo.png has "MacRumors"
the forums.macrumors <title> has "MacRumors Forums"
the macrumors.com <title> has "Mac Rumors..."
the Mac Blog <title> has "MacRumors ..."
the roundups <title> has "xyz | MacRumors"
the Recent Comments box has "Mac Rumors"
the More Macrumors Stories has "More MacRumors Stories"

There's a lot of places the name appears...both ways.

Wow, way to drop the ball, MacRumors...

Seriously, it would be neat if this thread brings about a movement toward more consistency on the site.

We've been working with Apple to design the next Mac Pro but if you'd rather we work on this, we'll tell Tim to hold off. ;-)

Ha. Yeah! The reason it has taken so long is that you couldn't decide between MacPro and Mac Pro.

i didnt notice it, but im on an iPad mini and the screen is horrible. I would be able to see that there were no errors if Steve Jobs were still alive. This website and Apple are going down the toilet.

Did I cover them all?

You forgot to say that the site makes scratches appear on your iPhone 5...

Of course there are inconsistencies. America isn't an English-speaking country.
