Why not. CHO

Not only is it the chemical composition of sugar without the #'s. But it also is the beginning of chocolate.

But that is that probably too confusing or intelligent. So no.
Good day sir! You get nothing! I said good day!

Quoted from solarvalue:

OK, to pass the time until Friday's reveal, get your suggestions in for the official Willy Wonka abbreviation. Once everyone has had their say I will start a poll with all the suggestions.
Thanks for your contributions.

no poll needed. it will be WONKA. That is what we (distributors) are going to be using.

You’re in Cali with the front row seat to all things gay. You tell us!

Better watch how you phrase things. People in 2019 tend to take innocent comedic comments out of context. Then accuse you of hate crimes and intolerance.

Ut ohh, what does pinside want?
Looks like Wonka and WWCF in tops, WWCE for the CE purchasers.

These abbreviations are all fucking terrible. I for one will be calling it Wonka.

I'm guessing Robin or the mod/admin team for the forums. I'm sure since WONKA is clearly winning and it's what the distributors have chosen as well, that is what it will be.

Wonka isn’t an abbreviation... it’s nickname.

I vote WH20

I'll send the community suggestions up the chain of command.

In other words, my cat will decide.

Ultimately, the cat decides.

I think if you use Wonka, every person in the world will know what you mean. In a few years JJWW or WWCF or anything equally obscure will confuse the new generation who come to the hobby.

I only started into Pinball 10 years ago but there are some abbreviations I still can't figure out when I see them mentioned in various threads. They should have a link on them so you click the abbreviation and it tells you what machine it is.

It' official gang, the cat has spoken.
Mee-ow! It is. Catgrats to all future Wonka owners.
I look forward to lots of pics of Wonka in the Cats and pinball thread.
Robin- what's the cat's name such as he makes so many important decisions?
