    This poll is to rename the captured American city of Denver to either "Windfall" or "Yankee Point". The YES votes will be agregated for overall renaming approval and the option with the higher total will be the name that we go with.

    Renaming was discussed in this thread.

    Quorum < 24 hours is 10 votes (with supermajority).
    Quorum > 24 hours is 15 votes.

    This poll will remain open until quorum is reached.

    If we're renaming an American city,we shouldn't give it a 'heroic' American name like Yankee Point.So I say Windfall.

    Sounds like an avid Orioles fan...

    Is Baltimore getting beat by NY a little too much for your tastes, CT? :D

    Okay, now I'm in a pickle. Over 10 votes makes the poll quorum and closes it. Overwhelming support for a change but equally split down the middle between the two choices. I will flip a coin for the decision. Heads it's Windfall, tails it's Yankee Point.

    And it is.......

    Heads. Windfall will be renamed at the next chat.

    Thankyou all for your support and participation. :D

    It's a mythical pejorative and in-joke with some of the GC chat regulars. :mischief:

    @Stuck. WAAYY off topic for this poll, but when I lived on Long Island I was a major Mets fan. I didn't like the Yankees either. I used to go to Shea stadium a lot and watch the Mets every year. Go NL! Then I moved to San diego and became a Padres fan.

    Which city name won this poll? Also, quorum wasn't reached, so why was it closed?
