    This citizen's initiative is for replacing the text of the Naming Initiative with new language, to correct minor technicalities. In particular the changes are removing a restriction that only the Chieftain can open the names nomination thread, and correcting a reference in section V to point to section II instead of III.

    The initiative passed in this poll.

    The Naming Initiative
    I. Preamble
    As our civilisation grows we will, hopefully, found new cities and discover geographical features. Especially in the case of cities, custom names would help add an atmospheric touch to our civilisation.

    II. Procedure for Naming a New City
    On founding, a city will be given the temporary placeholder name: "City#1" (In the event that there is already a city holding that name, the new city will be named "City#2" and so on in numerical order as required). A thread will then be opened, to accept nominations from the public for the new city's name.

    All nominated names which have been seconded after four days will then be polled. If there is no majority decision, then the top three options, including ties, will be polled again. In the event of no majority in the second poll, the top two options will be polled again.

    Should no nomination be seconded, all nominated names will be entered in the initial poll.

    III. Loss of city
    Should a city be conquered or otherwise lost to another civilisation, before the naming process is completed, the process will be continued and the city given the eventually chosen name in the event of its recovery. Should the city be razed or otherwise destroyed before the naming process is complete, however, the naming process will be aborted.

    IV. Renaming an Existing City

    Renaming a city should occur only in special cases, and as such would be organised by the Cheiftain, in consultation with the city in question's Elder

    V. Other features
    Other geographical features, including, but not limited to: continents, mountain ranges, oceans, forests, and plains may also be named. Nomination threads for such features may be posted by any interested individual, and would follow the same procedure as in II.

    It is advised that a thread be maintained noting names of such geographical features to allow for easy referral.

    VI. Limitations
    Names must not violate CFC forum rules

    Shall the Naming Initiative be amended?
    Yes
    No

    Private poll, 4 days duration.
