😎 🏝 Name This Site - ROUND 4 Voting Open 🎉💥

In @waetherman’s absence, we shall soldier on.

First, a quick re-cap:

Round 1 (despite the title)

Round 2:

Round 3:

This is round four, and it’s fitting that we have four names remaining:

  • Elsewhere, with 50% of the vote.
  • Commentariat, with 30%.
  • MutantUnderground, with 28%
  • Adhocracy, with 25%

Please keep in mind that in the previous poll, you were allowed to choose two. This time, you have but only one vote to give, although we’ll still have one more round with the final two, and then a round to choose a TLD to go with the final choice. We’ll run this poll for two weeks, or until everyone has voted, whichever comes last first.

Here’s the poll:

  • Elsewhere
  • Commentariat
  • MutantUnderground
  • Adhocracy

I’m sticking with Adhocracy but I’m mainly at the point where I want to get this settled.

Do we really need another round with the final two? I’d prefer to take this as the final round, especially if there’s a clear winner, and then a quick vote on TLDs.

Well, if (the collective) you would finally pick the right name, then we could get on with it. :wink:

Seriously though, if there is a clear enough winner, I’d be OK with skipping the final naming round and moving on to the TLD round. I’m open for discussion either way, but I’m reluctant to put it to a vote.

I’m beginning to think “arewethereyet” is the right name for this place!

Wow, arewethereyet works on so many levels! I think we should restart the whole voting process so that we can include it. Perhaps we could form a subcommittee or five to make sure the voting goes smoothly…?

As of today, 51 voters. How many registered users on the site now?

According to https://bbs.elsewhere.cafe/about, 139 total users.
(And 90 active in the last seven days - which isn’t what you’re asking, but is a useful indicator.)

And of course @LockeCJ posted some useful stats here:

https://bbs.elsewhere.cafe/t/user-base-growth/526/38

…that suggest that of the 138 users, we can expect 65 to 74 to be active (and thus see this poll) each day. It looks likely that that 90 above is close to the value for the ‘regular pool’ that those 65-74 appear from (I’m using the 7 day, 30 day takes it to 108).

(TLDR: We got 138 users, but from the data culled above, I believe that 90 (or so) is the reasonable maximum number we can expect to see this vote, so while 79%-68% of our daily turnover have voted (which is good), 51/90 is the inclusive ratio to measure against: 61% of our 90 ‘reasonable maximum’ users have voted. Please do check my arithmetic and assumptions.)

[Edit for honesty: if we used the 30 day max, instead of the 7 day one, the voting percentage is (currently) 47%. I’d be happier with not waiting until we get a ‘30 day average’ of votes, though.]

…aaaand I’m going to stop running figures, and wait for someone else to check my assumptions. :wink:

Maybe let’s run this for a specific amount of time - say a week, then close voting?
