    Quoted from mof:

    I'd like to petition that WW stands for Whirlwind (1990), which came before Waterworld (1995)

    Quoted from pezpunk:

    i hereby petition to change the BH mouseover from Big Hurt to Black Hole!

    How about this? I could change the rollover to show both games?

    Quoted from CNKay:

    BH could also be Big House or Bounty Hunter. Agree that BH should be BLACK HOLE all the way! Big Hurt boo!

    Even three!

    Putting this on page 54 of my to-do list

    Quoted from mof:

    Oh, I didn't realize you had that option -- were doing that with other games?
    People won't die if they have to spell out Waterworld once a year. Whirlwind on the other hand, is a frequently discussed game. To be honest, of the 30+ pinball people I've met in the last 2 years, I've never heard anyone discuss Waterworld in person either.

    I have just added the option to have multiple listings for an abbreviation (with the last site update). If you have suggestions, now that this is possible, please mention it in this thread and I will add them. I think for building the feature I only tested (and added) WW for Whirlwind and Waterworld. There must be more games sharing an abbreviation.
