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...

    Part of me was hoping for a different name, one that's easier to get across to other people in discussion would be nice. The last set of choices weren't too much better though.

    In all, I'm not too bothered about it.

    I did not visit the other site all those years because its name made sense or was explainable.

      This!! I visited the other site all these years because it was worth visiting... and a bit because I could remember the bloody name. I'm glad SN won... another name I can remember, another site I hope to visit for a lot of years. :)

      And there is no Alkibiades to come back and save us from ourselves.
