    This poll will determine what name (or name set) will be used for Demogame 3. The option that receives the highest overall support will be used. Vote for all options that you approve of.

    This topic was discussed in detail in this thread and in this info poll and previously polled here. This poll includes the top options from that last poll plus a popular write-in choice. This poll will remain open for a minimum of 24 hours. Note that there is no quorum and no abstain option is offered.

    I think Randy of the Randomites is long on humour but Fanakkadia may mean that our opponents treat us with more respect:)

    We should go with the second or fourth proposals. I also like my proposal for Fanakkadia, but it may not be appropriate now that we are a random civ. I don't like "Randy" however, especially since our people will hold a "We Love the Indecisive Day" :eek:!

    I would prefer to have a name I could repeat to my wife without her giggling knowingly. Possibly we could aim for a little more dignity for those of us with mundane connections?

    Mind, my wife PLAYS Civ, so she is not a worst case scenario.

    Well, i had a good post inline for here stating about how I agree with Cyc and how Fanatikaida shouldnt even be an option, but it got lost with the sudden server downage.

    Anyway, I voted Randy

    Randy's serious, and I even voted for the poor bugger inspite of some of the more coloquial connotations of the word as used in the UK ;)

    Go with option four, but change the title in the game to President anyway.

    I went with randy... we got those lame names for 2 games now... lets have some more fun with the 3rd one...

    It will always remind us that this is only a game...

    BtW: is it possible to change the title after we started the game? Maybe Randy would then get even more votes...

    No. Once the game is started you cannot change the name represented in the save game itself.

    Im going to fight for a 3rd poll. I wont let Randy die. Yeesh, now I really sound like Cyc. Top 2(or 3) winners of this pit it off for a final (and if its a tie between randy and his fanatic, we go to a runoff)

    This is a multichoice poll. Everybody who can live with Randy has voted for it. If it doesn't get a plurality of support then it simply doesn't have enough support.

    If all else fails, how about Abstaintia? :p

    Technically, everything's a minority option now (less than 50% of the vote).

    This poll is conclusive and the result is that we will determine our name after we know what civilization is representing us.
