We've finally reached the end. The name will be....!

I know, it's a bit anti-climactic, but we've gone over the results and our current name won by a significant margin. We'll follow up with a post detailing the voting results in a few days.

Edit: The results data are available in responses to this comment.

For what it's worth, there were a lot of us that would have like to see the name change. The staff even had a chance to override this decision, but instead we decided to support the community's choice.

I'd like to thank everyone who spent a lot of time (and in some cases money) suggesting domains, voting, and bearing with us through this long complex process. It turned into a huge, non-trivial task to pull off, and I appreciate your patience and understanding. We listened to your criticisms of the process as well and we've learned a lot about how we can significantly improve this process for the future.

Okay, now cue all the "I told you that SoylentNews would win!1!!1!!" comments...

    I'm actually pretty happy with that - Good Stuff.

    Since I did vote in the first round I'm a bit annoyed though that I never saw an email or anything else inviting me to vote in the final round. Yes I've checked settings and spam filters etc.

    It's not the end of the world, but is worth examining if other decisions come up in the future.

    Ditto. Nothing from SN on voting. I was getting daily update emails, but even those stopped. The winner is what I would have voted for anyway.
