Round One of a poll for naming! Vote for two.
I may add some things, this is not binding.

We might set an end date on ths since we are in a small rush.

No surprises when the poll is closed.

If we like it we might want to put something in front of Gameapalooza, there is a suspended website on "gameapalooza.com". Which I think means it is owned.

Too bad we're in East Central Wisconsin though.

Well, I agree we are in East Central Wi, but we are also in North East Wi. By any regional affiliation, accounts anyway.

I concede, but first I must give you the finger. In HS, Omro was in the East Central Conference, which where my initial reaction came from.

Also from the DOT http://www.dot.wisconsin.gov


And lets just admit that this is SB's way of trying to get an E and W into the name. Where my interest in the name FoxCon has nothing to do with the X.

As the person that proposed the North East Wisconsin part to get NEW, I have to admit I stole that from Roadrunner. When I had my email with them it was new.wi.rr or whatever, the new part standing for Northeast Wisconsin. There are some committees that the University sits on with businesses in the area, and they are part of the NEW ERA, in which ERA stands for something as well.

So the NEW part seemed to be natural to me as it described a general area of the state. Heck, even the Green Bay news stations refer to themselves as serving Northeast Wisconsin and reporting on things as far south as Fond du Lac county.

Instead of trying to define an area, I always felt it was more or less a generic / rough estimate of an unspecified region in the state. Sort of both North AND East, instead of Northeast as the tip of Door County may truly be the only Northeast part of Wisconsin (that's what we get for not being a square or rectangular state).

Plus, you know. . . Northeast Wisconsin Gameapalooza.... NEW Game. +1 for an easy acronym. As SB says, the copy writes itself. ;)

Your logic only bolsters my attempt to be an asshole.

Actually, if I've learned anything from the PU its that the opposite is more likely to be true. ;)

Kinda not a fan of using abbreviations after working in a sales office (goes along with buzz-words and corp-lingo). At work they had a 3 page document to keep track of all the ones used by the client, there were that many of them.

But that is just me. I can vote for something else and live with the vote outcome.
