Open Source Uru - Community Name List Experiment.

I wanted to know how a running List Type Poll thread would work for the Uru Community Explorers. Something Publically transparent as it is being done for all to see.
And yes I know that Cyan will be the final say as to what it will be called no doubt.
This thread is just to see what the majority of those active and posting here in Myst Online in the Uru Community would like to see it be.
Listed at the bottom are most of the NAMES already proposed from Explorer Sophie’s "So, what are we going to call it?” thread. http://mystonline.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=16656 URL here to see names and reasons why debated.

I will keep the Top 3 Names on top the list with number of times Explorers posted for it.

SIMPLE POSTING RULES and GUIDELINES are:
(1) Post Only your Explorer Name and the Name you would like Cyan to call Open Source Game.
(2) Post Only once for the Name you like. Note: It does’t have to be one from the list.
(3) At the end of 30 days the Final Counts will be posted and the thread locked.

I think it would hafta be something simple and easy to remember, at the same time the name should acknowledge both Cyan and the fans involvement. Most people know it as Myst online or Uru live so perhaps that should be part of the name, I think the name should be something familiar to those who know of the Myst series and something that will inspire curiosity to those who do not.

They say never judge a book by its cover but its the cover that will get your attention, and its the content of the book that will hold your attention.

JWPlatt - OpenURU (No surprise there, I'm sure).

(I'm afraid MOREos is too phonetically close to 'morose' for me). ;)

Karkadann - Your comment is a well thought out with merits,
However, this thread is only about the name of choice you would like to post and see adopted by the Uru Community i.e. most popular posted.
This thread has a stated and specified purpose with posted guidelines. Pleased respect and follow them. Thank You.

Here it the thread Sophie started for NAME comments i.e. pro and con reasons for the name to be . . . or not.

The stranger- Beyond Myst Uru (well, I came up with it).

(however, I'll be personally calling it openuru. I like BMU better, but I'll still call it uru or openuru. But yeah, put my name with BMU)

It seems everyone are choosing "uru". I will call it openuru. I only chose "beyond myst: uru" because I came up with it and I know no one will choose it :lol:

:lol: MO:OS... it is at least somewhat humorous and something that sticks in the mind, which I think will be good for marketing efforts.

Cosmic Osmo knocks the somewhat popular OS:MO out for me.
