    Same. They sound more 'educated' without being overly complex, and I don't know Latin , otherwise I might have chosen one of the Latin names.

    Voted for Basilica - what is with the baths? I don't come here to get clean and Forum's too blah.

    &

    Academy - 'cos people are supposed to learn things there, right?


    No! Wait! Someone else voted for Moditorium? I can't believe it. I want to take back my vote for Basilica and vote for Moditorium! Up the Moditorium!

    Damn, Myrddraal, I honestly thought you wouldn't fall for it. I see that you have still much to learn as a moderator.

    Sure change it back.

    It seems we have a clear leader for the general forum: The Forum, with the moditorium comming second, but the Guides forum is much more contested. We have
    Bibliotheca
    The Library
    Scriptorium
    Bibliotheca Magisterium

    All in close positions.

    Because of this, we're going to move onto a second round of voting. The General forum will be changed to "The Forum", and a new poll will be set up for the Guides forum, but before I do that, I have a question:

    Bibliotheca and Bibliotheca Magisterium are very similar, and if we group the votes it got, it equals the Scriptorium. Should these two options be merged in the next poll?

    scriptorium in the lead by 1

    I would say it would be better to have a choice of 3 rather than a choice of 4, but how to merge it as they have equal votes?

    Ah yes, it's very generic, but that's what the people wanted.

    Thanks everyone for voting. We're delighted to announced that the Guides, Tutorials and Tools forum will be rebranded as the Scriptorium!

    Expect that and a few other changes to take place shortly.

    Deliberations over the new name for the General forum are in their final stages and you can look forward to a similar announcement revealing its new name soon.
