    Hi there!
    Not really important but I use "Civvi" as abbreviation quite often. Others use other stuff. Since abbreviations (jeez: That's a long word! :p ) are pretty common on these forums what should we take as "official"? ;)
    Any other ideas on this?

    I'm going to be using CiVI since it doesn't take any extra characters and has the number included.

    Just not CiVI or CIVI. Because CIV and CiV are already confusing. I guess I wouldn't necessarily know what was being talked about if I read Civvi or SIX (outside of this specific board) either.

    stop asking questions.
    I use Civ VI. civvi looks like siv-vee which is weird, but really its just preference.

    it's clearly civvi, either lower case or upper case.

    so, no need for a poll, we're done here.


    :D

    Personally I despise the abbreviations that try to incorporate the Roman numeral directly into the word. I never use "CIV" or "CiV" or "CiVI" or whatever else. They save so little time and effort over simply writing "Civ IV" or "Civ V" or "Civ VI" (the forms I personally use), and come with the burden of having to stop and remember each time what this particular combination of uppercase and lowercase indicates exactly, that I don't think they're worth it. And "civvi" is just silly looking.

    These two are my favorites also. Civ6 is clearer, but I like that the distinction between CIV, CiV and CiVI becomes so obscure that only hardcore fans will grasp it. :lol:

    I've seen a few people use CVI, but that means 106.

    One of: Civ VI, civ VI or C. VI.
    So a clear separation between the Roman numerals and the civ abbreviation. The Roman numerals stand out better in capital letters.
    Or if Roman numerals are not desired, then Civ 6 is also fine.

    Civ6 is the most precise
    CiVI if we want to be fancy
    Six works too. I've been using '6' in discussions

    Yeah, I suppose if I had to go with a consensus it'd be this one :).
