For some reason this discussion put me in mind of the perfect acronym:

Open URU, Based On Really Old Software.

First I want to thank Sophia for keeping the undecided name topic going here. I have posted a few times on the very nature of the Uru Communities fragmented nature and the inability to express mass explorers desires, wishes or decisions.

Hopefully, this thread might bring the matter to a final decision before we actually get the source code and start playing!
It seems after 13 pages and 4 almost 4 months now, maybe it is time to boil it all down to a vote.
To that end I would like to suggest that Sophia, if she would be willing or any other, start going through this thread and collect all the proposed names (Top 3 or 4 maybe) mostly suggested already together in a post for all to see.
Then this thread can comment on those names as those to be canadates for a decision. As in these are ok.
Then just have a Open Source Name Call List run for explorers to say and see what most want. Yes, I know, it is like the roll call list I did. But it could work and keep it all transparent to the Uru Community. Some could even take the top names to the guilds for a Call List Name. Tally all the List up and post final results.

Something simple like just post the name you like without the need to explain why or defend you reasons.

i have seen many instances where polls don't always reflect the mass of explorers wishes more than just the active few who post most often Noting Polls I have seen done having 10 or less votes. Maybe even a Call out into SL and There with link to thread for explorers to have their say. It would be good to see a conclusion to a final adopted name at any rate. This is my suggestion. If nobody likes it, please don't go off in a post with outrage and how dare Jahmen..... It is just one explorers view and suggestion to try to help bring about a conclussion.

I went through this thread and came up with these from Posts.
Mostly everything, but probably missed some

Nah, polls are too confining, it's better to have free floating opinions hehe. I do think the majority prefers just Uru, anybody cares to count?
Name - Votes
Uru - 29
Moose - 12
Uru Live - 11
OpenUru - 6
MORE - 5
OSMO - 4
MystOnline - 3
Uru Alive - 3

Sophie, If you would like, I could start a Names List of what explorers here have chosen for additional visual of how the count looks for most popular Names. I know this thread is for fun, not serious as posted.
So I just thought for fun we could run a Game Name Count List. Let me know. It is Your Thread and don't want to step on your toes so to speak.

OpenURU for me.

(though I still like the name "beyond myst:uru", but it doesn't really fits here).

URU

Back to basics. The title should be just that, simple, powerful, evocative - the way Myst and Riven were.

That was just the publisher's title. :) It was really just "Riven." We all knew it was the sequel to Myst from the first screenshot they published. :D

Well... I still like "Beyond Myst:Uru". That way, people know it's not myst, but it's somewhat related to the myst game and books (d'ni). And it's not like titles are evil.

But yeah, it's not very good for an open source uru. So open uru it will be.

It's not what I like, but what you like Jahmen :) I started this thread tongue in cheek, fully realizing it is probably either Cyan who determines the final name, or explorers will call it what they want anyway.
It is not MY thread and I don't have toes that long anyway, do as you please :wink:

Yes as you said. And as I said, Just for Fun I would like to List explorers post of what name they liked. Track it. Just to keep a running list of popular names and those fairing best. Who knows, maybe if enough explorers express their preferences to a particula name, Cyan might adopt it. Even if Cyan choses an alternative name, most popular name with explorers here might stll become a widely used and accepted one. Though this is not my intent. Just curious to see how the community explorers would respond to such an exercise much like the Roll Call. This could be a useful means to give explorers a place to be see and heard in a organized fashion. Keep it just to posting the name you like best only with out the thread being anything else. Just an idea.

Example:

Code:
Top THREE Names.     

To DATE:   3 For: Uru bla bla One       1 For: Uru- ble ble Two      3 For: Uru- La La Three

    Explorer Name:              Game Name:

 1. Jahmen -                    Uru bla bla One                         
 2. Abjab -                     Uru bla bla One            
 3. e’telka -                   Uru- ble ble Two            
 4. Gandhar-aka-Jusme -         Uru- La La Three    
 5. Zander_nyrond -             Uru- La La Three
 6. Karkadann-aka-Carkadann -   Uru- La La Three
 7. Dot -                       Uru bla bla One 


Explorers: Please Post back to say if any of you would like to see this happen?

Couldn't we just use the poll function on this forum?
