Yeah, wouldn't the S.S. be an unfortunate coincedence? Nazi's didn't really occur to me until it was mentioned.

I would be perfectly fine to change the name if you want me to. When I originally came up with the Shock Squad name I considered replacing it for this reason, but I decided to use it on the condition that I placed the picture with the full title right smack at the top. Anything you want :)

I'm with you on this one. Acid Shock Squad rolls off the tongue a lot better in my mind than Acid S.S. does.

Well, you're kinda stuck with the acronym A.S.S. that way, but your call.

Anyone who's concerned about all the things SS might stand for is welcome to PM me to discuss it.

Terran Urban Resistance Defense doesn't flow. Now, following the ability to drop such things as "of" and "and" from Acronyms, Terran Urban and Residential Defense. Suddenly, being called a pig is the least of the local precincts worries...

So I should just change it to avoid using the acronym? Again, I want to do whatever you're most comfortable with.

How about "Acid Shock Assault Squad" So you can be "Acid S.A.S."

When Universal Studios was first building their park in Japan, for some reason the local administrators did not want to call the Waterworld stunt show "Waterworld"... I'm not sure why. Instead they called it Action Stunt Spectacular. Universal has a very acronym-happy corporate culture. (USH, USF, USJ, etc.) So from bidding, all they way up till about 6 months before opening, every document, transmittal, and drawing was labeled ASS... I think someone finally told the Japanese park administrators what that meant, cause before the park opened, it was changed back to "Waterworld"

Change "Squad" to "Platoon", that gives you the acronym "A.S.P."

Seconded. Completely missed the A.S.S. acronym. That's unfortunate :|

I like carpemortis' suggestion, not that my preferences really matter here. But it allows you to keep the noun-abbreviation thing you have going.

I'll probably go with Acid Assault Troops or Shock Core or whatever other variety.

Btw, is it possible to edit thread titles?

Edit the first post, it should allow you to edit the title.

Ok, thanks.
At this point S.S. stands for Something Something

I thought the point was to alter it from having SS in the abbreviation? For pretty obvious reasons. I must be missing the point here.

Oh, I was just joking.

I think Acid Shock Core is final.

Core or Corps? Big difference. Pronounced the same.
