I’m gonna squash this rumour - while MODX is the official name for the product and company surrounding it now, it is *not* required for everyone to use it. You can still use MODx, modx, mOdX, mODx, or whatever you feel like using. We are only standardizing the name as MODX for official copy and marketing purposes, as well as branding consistency.
My point is that if we care about marketing and branding consistency, we need people both inside and outside to spell the name consistently. Changing the spelling from MODx to MODX makes that *less* likely to happen and actually works against those goals. I understand the need for a new logo, but not the need to change MODx to MODX, which is a different issue. To me, the new logo looks equally good (or bad) with the lowercase x. It also seems terribly myopic to me to make the orthography of the actual product name subservient to the logo.
Do a web search for MODx and you will find that virtually all of the references refer to us as "MODx." Think about how many of those references on the web won’t be updated to the new version -- ever. It is MODx that has won awards and been favorably reviewed, not MODX.
We currently *have* branding consistency and we’re about to give it up, IMO, and I don’t see any significant benefits to offset the loss.
Just my $.02. I’ll shut up now.
