Hello fellow grammarians,
I'm fairly new the board, so forgive me if this has already been covered but...do we have a preferred style?
My question specifically regards the "RAW" (rules as written) acronym?
Generally, the style tends towards not using the article "the" in front of acronyms because they are stand-alone words, generally treated as nouns, i.e.:
RAW dictates that we roll a d20 for initiative.
The RAW dictates that we roll a d20 for initiative.
The article "the" can be placed in front of an acronym if it is being used as an adjective. i.e.
The RAW acronym is standard use on rpg.stackexchange.
My reason for asking is because StackExchange likes to encourage users to edit each other's posts. I'd like to first know what style to follow so that posts that I edit will appear uniform in style. Do we have a style guide? Should we establish one?
