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...

    And it appears neither the food company nor the original movie company has clear title to the name or the word soylent.

    We are not likely to run into trouble, because the Soylent food company is probably going bust soon anyway, because nobody likes it, its not significantly different from any other liquid diet, which as a class have proven pretty un-healthy.

    No, you are mistaken. I've always had this sig.

    I don't know; I would think that a company nobody likes that is supposedly going bust soon is the most likely to indiscriminately have lawyers cause trouble.
