Super Pedantic OCR Style Guide

11 posts in this topic

When mentioning the site in written interviews and other things, remember that we have official ways of referring to the site:

  • OverClocked ReMix - Full name of the site. Capital O, C, R, and M
  • OC ReMix - Abbreviates OverClocked. There's a space between OC and ReMix.
  • ocremix - All lowercase, no space. Generally used for official account usernames, URLs, and anywhere else where capital letters and spaces aren't available.
  • OCR - Three letter acronym for the site.

Common mistakes/what not to do:

  • Overclocked Remix - Needs capital C and M.
  • OverClocked ReMiX - Never capitalize the X.
  • OCReMix - When capitalizing, always put a space between OC and ReMix
  • OCRemix - Needs a space between OC and R, and the M should be capitalized.
  • OCRM - The M is not part of the abbreviation
  • OverClocked - Don't leave out ReMix.
  • overclocked_remix or oc_remix - if you can't use spaces, don't use underscores and don't capitalize anything, just use "ocremix"
  • O-Clocked - just...no.

That's not ironic (or against any style guide). How is a logo in one case remarkable? Some aren't. A lot are.

"Har har, your company name's 'Southwest Airlines,' but the logo says 'SOUTHWEST AIRLINES' in full caps"???

Not to be super pedantic in a super pedantic topic, but the Girl Scouts typeface is NOT capitalized. Even if you did say some are not, it's still quite uneven and the greatest travesty wrought on the internet since Tubgirl.

For SHAME, Larry! >8V

Oh shit, I've literally always spelled it OCRemix. I am ashamed, but I probably will continue to do so since while it's not in the 'DO' section, it's not in the 'DON'T' section, either.

YOU CAN'T STOP ME DARKESWORD! :twisted:

(except for official things, where I guess I can do it riiiight)

You're on the staff, you of all people should be writing it correctly. :350:

Since I'm working on (and have worked previously) on album art for the projects here, is there any specific protocol for referencing and linking to OCR from my portfolio/blog? 

I'm not asking about the terminology right now. That's covered very well (cheers!) but more the question of:

1- Am I allowed to?
2- If so,  is it only OCRA projects, or can all projects be included?
3- Do you have a preferred spiel/paragraph I can copypaste?
4- Would you object to or prefer any part of the site being linked?
5- Would you prefer OCR to be referenced in specific works related to it and/or a direct link in my (as yet not live) links page?

Disclaimer: my site contains nothing controversial or offensive, and the reason I'm submitting this comment is because I like to volunteer credit to the people I have worked for.

Cheers!
