These are the choices. Vote carefully. The vote ends in a week.

EDIT: I know it was winning, however it was brought to my attention that having a server named "PUR" could be misconstrued as an endorsement of the PUR group headed by an admin and construed as favoritism. So it's been removed.

Sorry guys. :(

But if you considered that an problem, I could had closed down said group, or at least added a notice... >_> Personally, I don't see the problem at all and I doubt we would get a mass-flood of cries of favoritism for it to be an problem. I'm willing to close down said group because it's not going anywhere, and was just a lame joke I made up long time ago.

Plus what would stop me from creating an Andromeda/Whatever group, and suddenly it being favoritism again? In other words, I think that's a total non-issue...
11:32 - Ailure: and if it was a such problem, why not rename it to YEL
11:32 - [FOR] Arcalane: or GRY
11:32 - [FOR] Arcalane: or BLK
11:32 - [FOR] Arcalane: GRY being neutral colours of course~
11:33 - [FOR] Arcalane: hell you could go RED/GRY/BLU :P
11:33 - Ailure: Or what about GRE
11:33 - Kitsuna: GRN
11:33 - [FOR] Arcalane: GRN works better

Suggestion; since it looks like Sandvich/Winbomb/Facestab are going to come second place, maybe we could use those as the names of the servers when they're in Arena mode? Just a thought. :)

Ed: Second suggestion; after a little discussion in the chat we came to a way to bypass the confusion aspect and retain the RED/BLU theme. More specifically, something like RED/GRY/BLU. Alternately replace GRY with another acronym for a fictional faction (a factional fiction?) such as BLK, ORJ, PNK, BRN, YLW, GRN, and so on and so forth.

*points above to Ailure's post* If PUR was a problem, why not just pick another colour? Like "Yellow (YLE)" or "Green (GRN)" or "Grey (GRY)" or "Black (BLK)" Hell, half the fun a few of us have had is trying to find names for those acronyms.

I think we shouldn't name our servers, honestly. Just keep em 1 2 3 an 4 an all that jazz, all it's gonna do is spark drama (just happend a few minutes ago in the TFP chat.) It's a good idea, but for the sake of sanity (what little is left in TFP) i want to avoid faggotry and drama.

Why isn't there 'none of the above'? or, as mortician said, 'Don't name the servers'

All it's going to do is cause confusion, drama, and make things way more complicated than they should be.

Agreed. RED / BLU / [Insert additional colour here] was the only one that possibly worked in my mind. I generally don't see my vote going elsewhere.

And you certainly could have brought this to me personally once I woke up instead of posting it here.

I'm trying to be fair AND maintain all appearances of being fair. You don't have to change your group because someone suggested something similar. And I don't have the right to change people's suggestions on the matter (without mutual admin consent.)

However what I CAN do is take something that would present a potential problem out of the running once I notice it could be a problem. THAT is the decision I made and if you have further issue with it I expect you to take it up with me privately from now on and NOT in chat, NOT with others and NOT in public.

Because when the initial thread was up, the general idea that WE AS ADMINS got was that the majority didn't care or that they had given their preference. Now the vote's up and people are sparking drama? I'm sorry, I don't buy it. That thread was up for two weeks and not once was there this drama.

If you don't want to name the servers that's fine. If you wanted the option that's been eliminated, that's fine. But do NOT spark drama over this-I can just as easily shut down the poll and pick something myself.

I'm sorry for being fairly angry sounding earlier on as I was fairly stressed out from schoolwork and blew up the issue far bigger than it should been. And yes I should had taken it into the private. :/ My experience should have told me that this kind of stuff should preferable be taken to the person first.
