Ok I am going to find this out once and for all.

When a problem says that triangle ABC or sqaure ABCD. Do we assign these letters to certain positions ALWAYS?

I have found some contradictory cases, but I think its just me.

Plz let me know im sick of fussing over this, especially in the Club challenges.

my experience: Triangle is not a problem but in case of square/rectangle, it should be in order: abcd not acbd.

Thats what I thought, but sometimes I come across problems where it says diagonal AC... That doesnt make any sense. Ima have to find a problem like that and post it. Cause i get confused with this stuff all the time and I wanna put and end to it right now.

Why is it not a problem for Triangles? is it always A on top B @ lower back and C on the bottom right?
