    Commodore 64 or Commodore LXIV[edit]

    @Laʒamon Æft-iboren:, thank you very much for your contributions! I’m not sure if we should call write the 64 in Commodore 64 by Roman numerals as well mainly because accommoder 64 is the name of that commodore used to market this computer. Changing it to Roman numerals feels to me kinda like changing the name of the computer. I would love to hear other opinions as well. -Gifnk dlm 2020 (talk) 18:57, 24 April 2021 (UTC)

    @Gifnk dlm 2020, I must admit, I hadn't thought about that. Personally I don't see it as a big issue either way, so I'm perfectly happy to change it back if you prefer. -Laʒamon Æft-iboren (talk) 22:23, 23 May 2021 (BST)
    @Laʒamon Æft-iboren: I also hadn’t put too much thought into this (I posted this and then entirely forgot about it😅) but I think that Commodore 64 is probably better than Commodore LXIV because that’s the name Commodore marketed it using. But with this article it isn’t a big deal - the problem is with Wp/enm/2b2t where someone changed it to iibiit which makes it completely unreadable. Also I think that keeping VIII bit instead of 8 bit is probably better. Also why do you write Roman numerals by lowcase letters. Idk but I always prefer to write Roman numerals by all caps. Thank in advance, -Gifnk dlm 2020 (talk) 07:51, 24 May 2021 (UTC)
    @Gifnk dlm 2020, Agreed re 2b2t. I tend to use lowercase Roman numerals because in most of the mediaeval manuscripts I've seen/read they use lowercase. But again, I don't think it's a big deal either way. -Laʒamon Æft-iboren (talk) 18:59, 10 June 2021 (BST)
    @Laʒamon Æft-iboren: I didn’t know that. I have seen Roman numerals written just by capital letters but if so I think it makes sense to have both - some numbers by capital letters and others by lowcase. -Gifnk dlm 2020 (talk) 19:27, 10 June 2021 (UTC)
