    You can't just call something people don't want to call it. It's called the Galaxy Editor because Galaxy Editor sounds good. Starcraft II editor sounds lame. Therefore, we call it the Galaxy Editor. No one wants to call it the Starcraft II editor.

    It just happends that the .exe files is called "Starcraft Editor". Even in beta it was named this way. doesnt mean it's not "starcraft II galaxy editor". Blizzard is the one who came up with the name. Or u rather have it named. "Execute_File_Click_Twice_To_Open_And_Launch_GALAXY_Editor_for_the_game_starcraft_II.exe"

    Just like the starcraft main executable is called "StarCraft II.exe" and not "StarCraft II Wings of Liberty.exe".

    It was shortened to easy to name / spell words.

    The Editor was called the Galaxy Editor by Blizzard before the Beta, thus giving it the nick-name Galaxy Editor. The name also comes from its coding engine, which is called Galaxy.

    Oh come on, we alrady decided that it's Galaxy Editor, why do you started it all over? Does it really matter? That's such a nonsence, not even worth a whole thread.
    People can call it however they want, stop crying about that, I call it GE because I like it that way, just like most of other people, the end.

    andreasaspenberg, I think you're trolling. I mean we already had this discussion and everyone decided that it is Galaxy editor, Bllizard calls it that way, most of Hive too... so does it really matter that much? Can we please close this thread and never ever question should it be called GE or SC2E?

    You can call the Galaxy Editor whatever you want. I don't think any of us really care. Just stop posting about what we should call it.

    Yes, you can't command others how to call things. Come on, nothing will change if you'll call dog "mammal", not dog. Well of course you might look iiane to other people then, but hell, most of SC2 modders know SC2E is also known as GE, so you won't look as complete weirdo and so there's no problem in calling it GE.

    I just feel like calling it "Starcraft Editor" sounds like "game editor". It doesnt stand out, and it doesnt feel specific. Just an other editor. And if u say "galaxy editor" , you know that u are talking about the awesome editor from sc2

    I remember back in 2007 or 2008, Blizzard refered to the editor as SCUMEdit (Starcraft Custom User Map Editor or StarCraft User Map Editor). Anyways, looks like the name has been pulled down.
