This is more of curiosity but does anyone know who started the whole calling "Classic Skyrim Oldrim"?

"Oldrim", as far as I can tell, came from the lot over on Reddit. People are lazy and will use the shortest term they can come up with. I personally hate the term and never use it. I always use "classic Skyrim" in conversation. As far as I know, I was among the first group to start using "classic Skyrim" over "oldrim". I'd love to kill the term off, but it's the Internet.

I really don't like the term "Oldrim", and I'm also not too keen on "classic Skyrim".

I prefer Skyrim 2011 and Skyrim 2016.

For "Skyrim Special Edition", I just simply use "Skyrim SE" or "SSE" for short because that's its name. A lot of mod authors seem to be attaching "SE" to the end of their ported mods, as well, to signify the different versions.

I sometimes get the feeling I'm swimming upstream against a tsunami, but I don't like the term either. I refer to them as Skyrim and Skyrim Special Edition, but I'm over the hill and dislike acronyms because I think acronyms are a hindrance to clear communication. When someone writes CRF I always have to stop to think for a few minutes which of the many variations1 of CRF is being referred to in this context.

I completely understand what you're saying. I work for a company that love acronyms. I've been in that very spot many times asking or wondering what the heck the company is referring to. Other times I have no idea what the acronym stands for, but I know what process it's referring to. For example... APOT. I have no idea what the acronym stands for, but in my company it's referring to the percentage of transactions completed using a company credit card vs another form of payment.

I came across another term yesterday on the Skyrimmods reddit - "Newrim". That made me cringe.

Well AAR8 being a BHOF, I am glad that not all conversations on the web take on the form of SMS language.
