    Take this as you will, but seeing as how there have been different pronunciations of it... how exactly is the extension .wad pronounced?

    .wad as in wuh-ad (like /ad/-vertisement)​
    -or-​
    .wad as in "wad of cash?"​

    This has been bothering me for quite sometime, and I'd like to see what you guys have to say on the matter.

    I don't think it matters how u pronounce it cause no matter how many comments u get u'll still wonder how 2 say it 'correctly' lol I've always said it as WAD (Wad of Cash) but again that's just me and figured that's how u say it!! lol

    It's "wad" as in "wad." C'mon. If a format is spelled exactly as an already-existing word, you pronounce it as the word it spells. WAD, BIN, TAR, ZIP, etc.

    I pronounce it like "Wu-Ah-AD" or "Mad but instead with a "W"" or... "W-aaaaaa-d" (sort of like how Wario says his name)

    If wad is already a word then why change the way you would pronounce it. [​IMG]
