What’s up with people calling Lua "LUA"?


  • Like, in the official site, it clearly says it’s spelt 'Lua', not 'LUA'.

    What's in a name?
    "Lua" (pronounced LOO-ah) means "Moon" in Portuguese. As such, it is neither an acronym nor an abbreviation, but a noun. More specifically, "Lua" is a name, the name of the Earth's moon and the name of the language. Like most names, it should be written in lower case with an initial capital, that is, "Lua". Please do not write it as "LUA", which is both ugly and confusing, because then it becomes an acronym with different meanings for different people. So, please, write "Lua" right!

    Respect your scripting language! They provided this easy lightweight code, and you come and misspell their name.


  • @incapaz You used LUA in your tag.

    Keep in mind Roblox game developers are, for the most part, just clueless 12 years old kids. They don't know any better. They don't even know the manual exists. A lot of people think "ROBLOX Lua" is its own language when it is not.

    It's just plain old regular Lua with added libraries and some standard libraries disabled for security purposes.


  • @hiimgoodpack it’s like that :(


  • @Link150 What about smart 12 year olds like me?
