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

...SoylentNews.org!

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...

    +1.

    I've been lurking here almost since the beginning. I didn't register to vote because I'm not an active member of the community and thus didn't have any skin in the game, so to speak; but I like the name and I'm glad it won.

    Nice one, guys.

    *resumes lurking*

    Speaking of time... why will it take "a few days" to put up a post with the voting results? You already have the results, right?

    And it's amusing that even you thought it was a stupid name! Out of interest.....why? Why was it called Soylent Green? What's the connection between a slashdot fork and a limp movie?
