Well, as an old AD&D player (I used to be an adventurer till I took an arrow to the knee) I like the STR reference to strength. So much so that it became my favorite. BUT, as I made the suggestion of 'SSTR' and caused the poll to crash, I voted for my own suggestion. For the record, I'm groovie with STR but if it goes to 4 letter tag and 'STAR' is taken, which I would guess it is, I'm groovie with 'SSTR'.

By the way. I've been involved with the SSX for years, though not always overly vocal. I enjoy reading the boards for the suggestions, debates, etc, the majority, as in 99.9%, are well thought out and presented. Its nice to be with a group that, though made of varying age groups, is adult enough to concern itself with the connotations of using an 'SS' in the tag to avoid negative connotations.

TSS just makes me think "toxic shock syndrome"... Icky. If we really have to do this whole name changey thing, then SSC.

But are you sure you don't want to be a car? An S-Type R?

Just to note that I have extended the poll from 4 days to a week so it will now end on Wed evening :thumb:
I'm not going to set it at 2 weeks as was done with the original community proposal vote though (and as BD suggested to me on IRC this afternoon). That poll basically just sat there waiting to end for the second week and even when accounting for our lesser/inactive folk, the 2 weeks I set for that was far too long. Besides, we've been discussing and voting on this stuff for over 4 weeks now so peeps should be well aware of that by now and know to keep checking in a little more often. And if we still have some people who are oblivious to all of this after a month of votes and discussion? then there's very little we can do about that really. Can't wait around forever for their votes :)

So it has been decided, we can finally put this burden aside and move on into the future. From now on we'll be known as The Shattered Star with the game-tag STR

Do note that groups within games still have the possibility to create 'sub' communities as is the case with Star Citizen where we will be known as Shattered Star Community [SSC].


This topic is now locked as it's purpose is fulfilled.
