Dear 100 Hour(s) Board,

Is the official name of the Board "The 100 Hours Board" as per the logo in the upper left part of the screen, or "The 100 Hour Board" as per almost every post?

Most sincerely,
The Dart

A: Dear The Dart,

According to the 100 Hour Board Style Guide (I bet you didn't know we had a style guide):
The official name of the Board is the 100 Hour Board. Therefore, the is not capitalized at any time (except for at the beginning of sentences).
When referring to the 100 Hour Board in its shortened name, write the Board. Again, the is not capitalized.
So let it be written, so let it be done.


A: Dear Kyle the Yellow,

Actually, according the logo, it's "The Board 100 Hours". This is corroborated by the URL, "theboard.byu.edu", which is an abbreviated form.
